Luke Evans Leaves 'The Crow' Reboot
Relativity Studios is now looking for a replacement for Luke Evans because he is no longer apart of The Crow Reboot, bummer. Corin Hardy is still attached as the director but Luke Evans is a busy guy in high demand, we could not expect him to stick around in this “limbo” surrounding The Crow Reboot/The Crow Remake. I am sad to see him go and I know that many would have seen the reboot/remake just because he was attached. We will keep you posted when his “replacement” is found.

William Brent Bell is making a new horror movie titled The Boy with Lauren Cohan (AMC’s The Walking Dead, CW’s Supernatural) to star in the lead role, her first feature film lead role. The Boy is a horror thriller that “centers on a nanny (Cohan) who is tasked with overseeing a lifelike doll by a bizarre couple who treat it as a real child. The couple use the doll as way to cope with the death of their young son, but the nanny becomes increasingly convinced that it is alive.” Involved in the project are Lakeshore Entertainment and Vertigo Entertainment with filming scheduled to start this March 2015. The screenplay was created by Stacey Menear. All said, I am am very interested in this project and cannot wait to see more.

The new movie will include four short stories/films. XYZ Films will produce the film. That is about all the news available right now so expect more as more news is released.

NBC and Sky TV has just greenlit a new futuristic dramedy “Apocalypse”. Set to star in Apocalypse are Rob Lowe, Megan Mullally, Jenna Fischer and Mathew Baynton. NBC describes the series as out-of-the-box and original. I hate to call it so early but I am not sold on this new TV series… next.

M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Visit (2015) received a PG-13 rating.

The Greasy Strangler with Elijah Woods and Company
The Greasy Strangler is coming together from a huge collaboration including Elijah Wood‘s SpectreVision, Drafthouse Films, Rook Films and Timpson Films to produce The Greasy Strangler. This will be the directorial debut of British Jim Hosking. All I have to say is “if Elijah Wood is in, so am I.” The new horror film takes place in Los Angeles with Ronnie and son Brayden. Father and son soon fall victim to the allure of a sexy woman and they both begin competing for her attention. Mysteriously, this is also the start of a killing spree for a slimy serial killer strangling the innocent later to be known as “The Greasy Strangler.”
Scream Factory to Release 'Stigmata' Blu-ray this May
Scream Factory will release their Blu-ray for Rupert Wainwright‘s Stigmata (1999) this upcoming May 12, 2015. Although not a terrifically great horror movie, I did enjoy Stigmata. The extras (bonus features) have not been released yet but Scream Factory usually tries to add as much as they can. Starring in Stigmata are Patricia Arquette, Gabriel Byrne and Jonathan Pryce. Enjoy the Stigmata Blu-ray cover art below.
Fox Orders Pilot for 'Frankenstein' TV Series
Fox has recently ordered a pilot for a new supernatural drama based on loosely Mary Shelley‘s Frankenstein. Fox is still trying to catch-up on what works as multiple other TV networks have several dark TV shows already in their primes. The new Frankenstein series will be written and produced by Rand Ravich and executive produced by Howard Gordon (The X-Files, Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel). The story will center on Ray Pritchard who is a morally corrupt retired cop who is brought back from the dead into a much younger and stronger body. Will Pritchard fall back into old temptations or choose better moral path? Frankenstein is going to be a Sci-Fi drama and from the sound of this early news, very boring and dull.

Sky Sharks - N*zi Super-Mutant Flying Zombie Sharks
Marc Fehse‘s new horror comedy Sky Sharks (2017) seems like a slightly different take on Syfy’s Sharknado movies. I read the synopsis and even though Sharknado was not my “thing”, I feel like I could really like Sky Sharks. Sad we have to wait till September 1, 2017 to watch the film but by that time the new film should be very polished. Cast in Sky Sharks include Cary Tagawa, Robert LaSardo, Nick Principe, Lar Park-Lincoln, Lynn Lowry and Micaela Schafer.

Eli Roth Produced Clown Blu-ray / DVD Release Date Details and Photos
Director Jon Watts’ and Eli Roth produced Clown (2014) is finally getting it’s Blu-ray / DVD release date this upcoming March 2, 2015. I am hoping to add this horror film to my scary clown movies list, if it is scary enough. Eli Roth also stars as Frowny the Clown. Also starring in Clown are Peter Stormare, Laura Allen, Elizabeth Whitmere and Chuck Shamata. I really have high hopes for this scary movie and all promo material so far makes it look scary. What are your thoughts on Eli Roth’s Clown movie?
Simon West to Direct 'The Blob Remake' Confirmed!
Simon West has been confirmed to direct The Blob Remake. Originally Rob Zombie was considering the directing chair on the remake but that did not happen. I was a fan of The Blob (1988) directed by Chuck Russell. Producers attached to the new remake right now include Richard Saperstein and Brian Witten. The Blob (1958) producer Jack H Harris will executive produce this new remake of The Blob along with Judith Parker Harris, Shara Kay and Laurence Freed. For those of you who do not know/forgot; the blob crash lands onto Earth and starts to multiply while/by eating/dissolving the local townsfolk. Are you excited to see the new Blob movie, I am!
