Some optimistic news on the upcoming Snoop Dogg flick BONES. The film's director, Ernest Dickerson had some interesting things to say about the project: "I think a lot of people are really going to be surprised when they see Snoop Dogg in the film, he really did create a character, and he really approached it as an actor. It wasn't a rapper trying to be an actor.He was very professional, very serious about it, and really found a nice way of playing Jimmy Bones. Jimmy Bones is a damaged hero. He's a hero who becomes a monster." The film is about a man who is killed in 1979 by close friends. He ends up coming back for some much-needed revenge in the 21st century.

Mike at Gamut! has a great article up about Dante Tomaselli's latest: HORROR. He wasn't able to view the entire film but did get a gander at a 5-minute preview disc of the movie. He describes the film as "visually stunning - a nightmarish montage of disturbing images. Some of the camerawork pays homage to Sam Raimi's Evil Dead, but there's also a lot of Tomaselli's original vision in there as well." HORROR is about "a group of runaway teens that escape from a drug rehab and encounter demonic forces in a rural farmhouse." The film was shot early this year in upstate New York on a $250,000 budget. Mike has some interesting info on Tomaselli and the film without giving away too much of anything. Check out his write-up here.
 

No WAR OF THE WORLDS for now...

October 8, 2001

Source: Dark Horizons

A scooper at Dark Horizons reports that rumours of the remake getting underway this week have proven unfounded according to Director Timothy Hines. Hines reportedly states: "It is absolutely not true that WAR OF THE WORLDS is about to resume. The reality is that we are massively reworking the script in the wake of the World Trade Center disaster and we will not be able to go before the cameras for a little over a year". Producer Susan Goforth says "The script has to be rewritten from the ground up. This new version will be a true and accurate adaptation of the Wells classic story placed in its original 1898 setting. It's been emotionally difficult for us to see sets and thousands of preparations scrapped. But Timothy has made the right choice". With that project basically cancelled for the time being, Pendragon is now turning its attention to a different project called CHROME. CHROME is a sci-fi tale about "a race of slave robots oppressed by a Nazi-like totalitarian society and the hero robot that appears to lead the mechanical slaves to freedom". The action film will utilise hundreds of animatronic robotic characters throughout its creation when it kicks off principal photography on December 3rd.

At the Hollywood release party for BOOGEYMAN, Robert Englund explained some of the difficulties that have surrounded the development of the FREDDY Vs JASON film, but emphasizes that he has full faith in the project. "Itís been greenlit," says Englund. "And Iíve heard recently that the executives at New Line have finally gotten a draft of the script that they like." One of the complications with the film is a contractual requirement specifying that the latest FRIDAY THE 13th movie, called JASON X, be released before production could start on JASON Vs FREDDY. Kane Hodder was proud to announce that JASON X has finally found a release window saying, "Weíre going into theaters this spring. Expect to see JASON X in late March or early April 2002." Englund believes that Jason vs. Freddy would probably start production not long after JASON X comes out. "And Iím very excited about it," he said.

One Bruce Campbell fan had the opp to question Campbell at one of his book signings recently. Campbell really just confirmed a few things we already knew. He says the chances of another EVIL DEAD or ARMY OF DARKNESS sequel are slim to none: "It's been 10 years, and sure, we would do it, if presented to us, but the studio heads wouldn't want to wait 10 years to see any type of profit from it, so I don't think it's going to happen". He also said that there is talk of an EVIL DEAD 2 video game and he was considering doing the voices. He also said that next year there is going to be an issue of the entire run of BRISCO COUNTY JR. on both VHS and DVD. Unfortunately there will not be an audio commentary for the DVD's, since the DVD will be copied from the tape. Incidentally, Campbell's next signing of his book, If Chins Could Kill, will be at 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 11 at Borders Books & Music, Carousel Center, 9777 Carousel Center Dr. in Syracuse, N.Y.

Writer Frank Cappello, who is adapting the Hellblazer comic series into a feature film entitled CONSTANTINE, told fans that the film's director, Tarsem Singh (THE CELL), is the right man for the job. Cappello states that "Now that I've worked with the man, I can honestly say he has a lot more going for him than his incredible visual sense. He understands the underlying struggles within this world and is an extremely intelligent and, actually, darkly humorous man. His push on the visual side will be nothing less than spectacular." Cappello had apparently been trying to maintain a British element to the project but he lost that battle with Warner Brothers, and that Nicolas Cage will likely play the Americanized hero. If Cage signs on, the film should begin production in January.

Rymer said he was pleased with the film: "I think Anne Rice fans will be happy with it - it's not to the letter of her book but it's true to the spirit of it. And I think it's visually the strongest work I've done and the performances are all very strong." A scheduled test preview in Los Angeles has been postponed as a sign of respect to Aaliyah, and the finished film will be dedicated to her, Rymer said. "The film will be released in February 2002, as planned even before the tragic accident. It was once slotted for October, but we've still got some sound design work to do, and the studios still have a huge backlog of films to get through. It's really hard for any of us to say how her death will impact on the film." As for Aaliyah's performance in the film, Rymer stated: "It was a challenging role for her - to play an evil, powerful character . . she worked on her craft and put a lot of energy into it, from movement coaching to dialogue coaching, to harness flying lessons. She did the entire role wearing uncomfortable teeth (prosthetics), heavy make up, difficult costumes and contact lenses. Not only did she deliver like a real pro, she never got grumpy and she never complained. She set a real example."

With the help of an FBI agent, the man undertakes a frantic race to find and disarm bombs he may have planted. All the while, he is trying to piece together his own murky past.

Rumours of a sequel to HEATHERS have been floating around for quite some time. Personally, I think it's a classic that doesn't need to be tainted with a bad (or even a good) sequel. Anyhoo, VideoPremiereAwards.com had the opportunity to speak with HEATHERS' director Michael Lehmann about the possibility of a sequel to the 1989 cult hit. Apparently everyone-from Lehmann himself, to Winona Ryder to producer Denise Di Novi are interested, but it all hinges on a decent script from Daniel Waters, and that may not be so easy. Waters stated that "It'd be like what [Chinatown screenwriter] Robert Towne went through with THE TWO JAKES". "It has been a long time, guys!" So I guess we won't hold our breaths, but there still may be some hope for those of you wanting a sequel.
