Is Halle Berry joining Samuel L. Jackson in The Blob?

The Blob isn't a creature that does its creeping, leaping, gliding, and sliding at the quickest pace, but I wish the new remake of the 1958 classic THE BLOB would move along a little quicker. Simon West ( EXPENDABLES 2 , WHEN A STRANGER CALLS remake ) has been attached to direct the film for over two years now, with Samuel L. Jackson signed on to star as a biochemistry...

Samuel L. Jackson takes on The Blob for director Simon West

A remake of Irvin S. Yeaworth Jr's 1958 sci-fi horror classic THE BLOB has been in development for years. At one time, THE CONJURING writers Chad and Carey Hayes were scripting a more comedic take on the concept, and at another point Rob Zombie was (briefly) attached to write and direct, famously saying that his version of the story would not feature "a big red blobby thing". ...

Better luck next time, Frodo. For today's O Vs. R, we are dialing up a creepy little number that definitely makes a babysitter think twice before checking the children. I'm talking about WHEN A...

Top 10 Airplane Thrillers!

So, Malaysia Flight MH370? WTF?!
