Kevin Bacon Returns To TREMORS In New TV Series

Well this cool.  Kevin Bacon is returning to world of TREMORS in a new TV series being developed by Blumhouse.
Universal Cable Productions and Blumhouse Productions are partnering up to develop a TREMORS television series that will bring Kevin Bacon back to the fictional town of Perfection, Nevada, reprising his role as Valentine McKee (he'll also executive produce the series for good measure). No network has committed yet, as the project is currently being shopped around, but several bidders have jumped into the fray in the hopes of securing the show.

This would be Bacon's first time back with anything TREMORS, having never shown up in any of the sequels or the series that aired on Sci-Fi back in 2003. What do you think?

SNOWPIERCER Is Becoming A TV Series

So, yeah, SNOWPIERCER is going to be a TV series.  Who saw this coming?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, it appears that the world of the titular grandiose, perpetually-running, Kafkaesque, society-housing locomotive of Snowpiercer will be chugging itself along to the realm of the small screen. Marty Adelstein of Tomorrow Studios is in the process of adapting the Snowpiercer television series. What do you think?

Thanks to Kilmer Switch for the heads up!

TV: HEY ARNOLD! Movie In The Works At Nickelodeon

Hey, guess what?  Nickelodeon is trying to relaunch some of their beloved classic shows -- and they're kicking the attempt off with a HEY ARNOLD! TV movie!  Will today's kids relate to the football-headed hero?  Who knows.  But I'll be watching, that's for sure.
The Viacom-owned kids’ outlet is developing a new TV movie based on “Hey Arnold!,” the animated series that ran between 1996 and 2004 and focused on a fourth-grader with an oblong noggin who lived with his grandparents in a boarding house. The TV movie will feature a storyline that picks up where the original series ended and resolves unanswered plotlines–including the whereabouts of Arnold’s parents, long missing from the program. Executives at the network declined to offer a specific date for when the new content might be ready or air. What do you think?

MTV tried a similar thing with BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD a couple years ago and it failed (although the episodes were awesome).

Behold, The ZOOLANDER 2 Trailer Is Here

Hey!  The trailer for ZOOLANDER 2 has finally arrived!  Well, "2oolander," as the trailer puts it.

Anyway, this actually looks...good.

So what do you think?


At the end of Part VI, where we last left Jason Voorhees, he was chained to the bottom of Crystal Lake.  But now, something has brought his back.  Today's sequel is 1988's FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VII: THE NEW BLOOD.

Lying dormant at the bottom of Camp Crystal Lake, Jason Voorhees is released from his watery grave by a telekinetic girl. And so the killing begins again. Can she use her powers to stop Jason, or is he back for good?

From Michael Silva on IMDb

My thoughts:
THE NEW BLOOD will always hold a special place in my heart.  For the longest time, it was favorite in the franchise.  That has since changed, but I'll always remember the first time I saw Jason stand up out of the lake and his spine was exposed.  Classic!  Still a cool flick, but just doesn't do it for me anymore.



Today's sequel is one of the more underrated entries in the A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET franchise.  This is 1988's A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 4: THE DREAM MASTER...

Following up the previous Nightmare film, the dream demon Freddy Krueger is resurrected from his apparent demise, and rapidly tracks down and kills all three of the surviving Elm Street kids. However, Kristen (who has the ability to draw others into her dreams) wills her special ability to her friend Alice before her demise. Afterwords, Alice soon realizes that Freddy is taking advantage of that unknown power she now wields to pull a new group of teenage children into his foul domain.

From David Thiel on IMDb

My thoughts
Robert Englund said it best.  NIGHTMARE 4 is the MTV edition of the NIGHTMARE series.  And I couldn't agree more.  A solid follow-up to DREAM WARRIORS, wouldn't you say?


Billy Bob Thornton Returning For BAD SANTA 2

Well, it's official now.  Billy Bob Thornton is returning for BAD SANTA 2.  That should put smiles on all your faces.

At least we now know that this sequel isn't going the way of JINGLE ALL THE WAY 2 and KINDERGARTEN COP 2 (thank god!).
Billy Bob Thornton is returning, but other than that details are light. No word on Zwigoff's involvement (if he's involved at all) or if anybody else will be coming back. Thornton killed it in the movie, but you can't undersell just how good Tony Cox was as his foul-mouthed elf sidekick. What do you think?

First Solo Affleck BATMAN Flick Might Have Its Arc

The next solo BATMAN movie starring Ben Affleck may have its story arc, according to a few sources.
There are a whole range of fairly well-known Bat-villains to choose from for Ben Affleck’s solo debut as the Capes Crusader, but according to JoBlo, the powers-that-be are hitting Bruce Wayne where it hurts.

The Red Hood had been around for over half-a-century before Judd Winick’s “Under The Hood” arc about 10 years ago, but that was the one to establish that Jason Todd, Batsy’s former sidekick long believed to be dead, had taken up the mantle of the murderous vigilante. Apparently, this is the story that Affleck and Geoff Johns are adapting for the next Batman flick, which also features The Joker, Talia al’Ghul, and another former Robin, Dick Grayson a.k.a. Nightwing. What do you think?

WORLD WAR Z 2 Has Found Its Latest Writer

Dennis Kelly of UTOPIA fame has been tapped to pen the latest draft for WORLD WAR Z 2.
Dennis Kelly, the creator of the buzzy British show Utopia, has been enlisted for the latest draft of the Brad Pitt starrer. J.A. Bayona is squarely on board to direct, though rumors surfaced recently that his involvement was on thin ice after being eyed to direct the Jurassic World follow-up. Sources say there was little Bayona could do given that he has a holding deal for World War Z 2, but the Jurassic World 2 overtures helped light a flame under Paramount to keep Bayona happy and get a new script in motion with the fanboy-friendly writer. Skydance Productions is co-producing and co-financing the film. What do you think?
