Danny Trejo accepted to play as The Regulator for El Rey‘s From Dusk Till Dawn Season 2 and here is the first photo of him in that role. Trejo’s cousin Robert Rodriguez is spearheading the From Dusk Till Dawn TV Series so we knew we would see Trejo sooner or later. I personally cannot wait to see what new vampires are going to be shown in this new season and how much deeper they can expand on the vampire mythos.

Cary Fukunaga Drops New Line Cinema's Stephen King's IT!?

Cary Fukunaga Drops New Line Cinema's Stephen King's IT!?

Stephen King‘s IT adaptation has hit a major snag with Cary Fukunaga (True Detective) leaving the director’s chair causing major delays in principal photography. It was reported that Fukunaga felt creatively compromised and with the filming starting in mid-June 2015, he jumped ship. The new IT movie has been delayed until further notice.  Warner Bros. subsidiary New Line Cinema wanted to cut the budget down to 1 movie and cut the budget down from a pre-approved $30 million. Ben Mendelsohn was also originally sought out to star as Pennywise the Clown but passed on the role because of a pay cut; this led to Will Poulter being sought next as Pennywise the Clown. Not too sure if Poulter will stick around also. We also included a tweet from Stephen King. Long live Tim Curry as Pennywise the Clown!

George A. Romero's EMPIRE OF THE DEAD TV Series Confirmed!?

George A. Romero's EMPIRE OF THE DEAD TV Series Confirmed!?

George A. Romero‘s new comic book series Empire of the Dead will be the next big thing to turn into a horror TV adaptation. Empire of the Dead is an epic tale taking place in Manhattan, NY with both zombies and vampires. This comic series was a short 15 issues so this can be a mini-series or a great starting point for a longer TV series. In the last few years we have seen great things from Robert Kirkman‘s The Walking Dead TV series and Guillermo del Toro & Chuck Hogan‘s The Strain TV series. Graphic novels tell great stories most of the time and need very little tweaking to be converted to TV or the big screen. Marvel and DC Comics is doing this for the big screen with huge profits in the last few years too. Tell us how excited you are to see this new horror TV series.

I read the graphic novels so I have an idea of the general story and I am sure that we will get a few tweaks for the TV series.
