'28 Months Later' Update from Alex Garland - May 2015
Alex Garland has been busy promoting his new movie Ex Machina (2015) but has also decided to clue us in on what has been put into motion almost 2 years ago for 28 Months Later. I for one was really shocked to hear the comment. Andrew Macdonald produced both 28 Days Later (2002) and 28 Weeks Later (2007). Alex Garland wrote 28 Days Later… (2002) and executive produced 28 Weeks Later (2007). Read on for what Alex Garland had to say because I do not wan to spoil it for you nor do I want to change his statement. 28 Weeks Later (2007) ended with a very big cliff hanger… now we wait for 28 Months Later!
CW Passes on 'Tales From the Darkside' TV Series Reboot!?
CW has officially passed on the reboot for Tales From the Darkside TV Series Reboot which was written and executive produced by Joe Hill (Horns (2013)), Stephen King‘s son… Ouch! Reasons why CW passed… CW did not like the anthology format and there was no showrunner for the TV series. It is not certain if we will see the reboot of Tales From the Darkside on another network or streaming service. Kris Lemche was set as the main star in the horror anthology TV series.

Are you stoked to see this also?
CW's iZombie Season 2 Confirmed!

Although concrete details like episodes and the premiere date for season 2 have not been released yet, season 1 has 10 episodes and the season finale premieres on May 19, 2015. Also starring in CW’s iZombie Season 1 are Malcolm Goodwin and Rahul Kohli. I watched a few of the episodes on Hulu and I have to say that I am not a major fan of the zombie TV series yet. Maybe I will watch some more episodes in the near future to see if I open up to the iZombie series.

Nicolas Cage in 'Pay the Ghost' Photo
Nicolas Cage has joined Uli Edel‘s Pay the Ghost movie. Check out the movie still photo as Cage gets “handled” by the female ghost. This vengeful ghost abducts children and only Cage can stop her. I cannot wait to see the trailer to get a better idea of how this movie looks. Also starring in Pay the Ghost are Sarah Wayne Callies, Veronica Ferres and Lyriq Bent.
'It' Remake Casts Will Poulter as Pennywise the Clown
Stephen King‘s It Remake is pushing forward and it has been confirmed that Will Poulter will play Pennywise the Clown/Monster. Tim Curry nailed this role in the previous It (1990) TV mini-series. Director Cary Fukunaga will breath new life into the It Reboot with two feature films instead of a TV miniseries this time around. It is said that Poulter auditioned for the role and nailed the role. Too early to call it on my end but I cannot wait to see what develops. The It Reboot is currently in pre-production.

Rodriguez will star as a recurring character whose details are still a mystery. Also starring in Fear The Walking Dead are Cliff Curtis (Gang Related), Kim Dickens (Gone Girl), Frank Dillane (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince) and Alycia Debnam Carey (Into the Storm). I am so excited that I will be able to watch AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead episodes on Hulu.
Lionsgate 'Cube Remake' Confirmed - Titled 'Cubed'
Lionsgate has confirmed that they will be making the Cube (1997) Remake of Vincenzo Natali‘s psychological thriller. The Cube Remake will be directed by Saman Kesh now titled Cubed. Philip Gawthorne is screenwriting off a rough story by Kesh. Roy Lee and Jon Spaihts will produce with Vertigo’s Adam Stone as the lead. Cube was such a great film that had so much awesomeness coming from the stars and situations, can they reproduce that again… time will tell.
Trailer / Poster - The Rohl Farms Haunting from LeglessCorpse Films
LeglessCorpse Films is about to release a Limited Edition DVD for their latest horror film The Rohl Farms Haunting on May 18, 2015 via Self Destruct Films. Poster looks okay but does not interest me… guess that is why they added so many quotes and awards to the poster. The trailer does look suspenseful but I just cannot the film is any good yet neither has it made me want to see it. I feel like this film bites off of Adam Wingard’s You’re Next (2011) movie… I saw a man at the end of the trailer with a horse-face mask on. As far as found footage horror movies go, I may pass on this one… just being honest here.
RIP: Syfy's Helix TV Series Cancelled Officially
Syfy’s Helix TV Series has been cancelled from what seems like a huge decline in viewership. I started watching season 2 but my family did not like the jumping back and forth between the present and future events. I thought it was pretty cool but it looks like many other viewers felt the same too. I still have to watch out the second season of Helix and will do so even though it is cancelled, the series had real promise. Tell us what you think of this cancellation, do you agree with it getting cancelled or do you think this was totally wrong?
