RIP: Christopher Lee - A Legend Like No Other
Horror legend and icon Sir Christopher Lee has passed away Sunday June 7, 2015 at the age of 93. This is sad, terrible and horrible news. Sir Christopher Lee’s wife only released this news recently because she first wanted to notify all family and friends first. Lee was hospitalized in London recently for respiratory problems but passed away due to heart failure on Sunday June 7, 2015. Sir Christopher Lee, born May 27, 1922 has nearly 300 films to his acting career besides his heavy metal music. Lee started acting in the 1940’s where he met Peter Cushing during The Curse of Frankenstein in 1957. Cushing and Lee became life long friends. Other highlights of his career are from The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars: Episode II & III, James Bond’s The Man with the Golden Gun (1974) or his many great roles as Dracula in various Hammer Films. Sir Christopher Lee will be missed by many generations of fans including myself.
First Look at Mulder and Scully from 'X-Files' Revival
FOX’s X-Files Revival Season 1 has started production and today we have a glimpse at Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson) and Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) via the X-Files Twitter account. Are you ready and stoked to see the return of X-Files on January 24, 2016? The behind-the-scenes photo features the differences between the two characters beautifully and I know they have a lot to catch up on. I just don’t see Mulder (Duchovny) the same since Californication but I would have loved to have seen a little of that character in X-Files, that no where fits in the world of X-Files but it would have been the pinnacle of excellent writing.
Gregg Bishop Directing Full-Length Feature of V/H/S Amateur Night Segment
The “Amateur Night” segment was definitely one of my favorites in the entire V/H/S franchise and I remember saying, right after watching, I wish there was more. Good news it that there will be. Director Gregg Bishop and Chiller TV are putting together a full feature film adaptation of “Amateur Night.” Bishop has many other films under his belt like “Dante the Great” from V/H/S Viral (2014) and Dance of the Dead (2008). Gregg Bishop‘s Siren (2016) will release somewhere in 2016 and I hope they give more info on the monster and the purpose for which it kills people.

Chris Hemsworth is the Receptionist in Paul Feig's Ghostbusters (2016)
Paul Feig‘s Ghostbusters (2016) has added Chris Hemsworth to the cast as the Receptionist. Paul Feig’s upcoming Ghostbusters film is going to be a comedy sci-fi film and this is hilarious news, Thor answering the phones. Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters will be an all female Ghostbusters cast (Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones) so I guess it seems fitting that the receptionist should be male. Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters releases in movie theaters this upcoming July 22, 2016.
Jon Bernthal to Play The Punisher in Netflix's Daredevil Season 2!
Jon Bernthal (AMC’s The Walking Dead TV Series) will be The Punisher in Netflix’s Daredevil Season 2. Movie stars who have played Marvel’s The Punisher have included Dolph Lundgren, Thomas Jane and Ray Stevenson. The Punisher will help Daredevil (Charlie Cox) clean up New York City’s Hell’s Kitchen, no matter the lethal results. Marvel’s Head of Television Jeph Loeb had great things to say about Jon Bernthal as The Punisher. Bernthal killed the role as Shane on AMC’s The Walking Dead so I know he will bring something ideal to Daredevil Season 2.

Constantine TV Series is Cancelled Officially!
NBC’s Constantine TV Series was cancelled by NBC but the studio was shopping around for someone to pickup the horror TV series but unfortunately no one did. Constantine Executive Producer Daniel Cerone officially announced that the cast and crew are now released from their contracts because Constantine is officially dead. I personally liked Constantine a lot and thought it was getting progressively better as new episodes were released. Constantine was speculated to find a new home on Syfy or even CW but that did not happen. Sad news indeed, Constantine Season 2 could have been awesome! RIP Constantine TV Series…
Stephen King's The Stand 8-Part Miniseries Before The Stand Remake Feature Film
Stephen King‘s The Stand book is 1,100 pages long so with that much source material we know we need a big lead up into the meat of The Stand’s Remake feature film. With that being said, in-the-works right now is an 8-part miniseries that will provide a lead into Josh Boone‘s The Stand Remake which is going to be 3 hours long. By in-the-works we mean that Warner Bros. and CBS Films are currently negotiating with Showtime to develop the The Stand miniseries. If the miniseries gets the final approval, Josh Boone will helm the miniseries too making one giant unified vision for The Stand. Filming could begin as soon as early 2016. This all spells 11 hours of material for fans and that is excellent. Roy Lee and Jimmy Miller are set to produce The Stand Remake feature film with some kind of association speculated with The Stand miniseries plus Stephen King will be involved in both as well.
Netflix's Daredevil TV Series Finds Bullseye!
Marvel TV has just kicked their actor roster right up by nearly closing the deal with Jason Statham as Bullseye for Netflix’s Daredevil Season 2.

Production starts this July 2015 so we should hear the final verdict on whether Statham will be the official Bullseye soon.

The film is a action horror sci-fi film. I know the franchise has been kicked in the mud a little but I imagine they are trying to uplift the Tremors franchise once more.

Cast in Queen Crab are Michelle Simone Miller, Kathryn Metz and Rich Lounello.
Scream Mask Revealed for MTV's Scream TV Series
First photo of the new Scream mask has been revealed for MTV‘s Scream TV Series. Wes Craven had confirmed that the mask did undergo some changes and I am not feeling this iteration of the famous Scream mask aka Ghostface mask. The mask is both creepier and hysterically funny at the same time with the mouth open. MTV’s Scream Reboot TV series premieres this upcoming June 30, 2015. The Scream TV Series Season 1 stars Willa Fitzgerald, Bex Taylor-Klaus and Carlson Young.
