Shane Black and Fred Dekker Rebooting ‘Predator’ For Fox
Ryan Midnight   |  

Predator Image

As ’80s and early ’90s action movie franchises continue to get the reboot and remake treatment, it was only a matter of time before Predator was seen as a financial opportunity to take advantage of, and today that news is officially set in stone thanks to 20th Century Fox.

Word is coming out that Predator is indeed getting “rebooted”, though there is no word as to exactly what that truly means, and talent has already been attached to the film. Shane Black, who wrote and directed Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Iron Man 3, will be taking on directorial responsibilities for the movie. He will also provide the basic treatment for the movie. Fred Dekkar, known chiefly for directing Night of the Creeps and The Monster Squad, will provide the screenplay.

Trailer For ‘Deliver Us From Evil’ From Director Of ‘Sinister’ Looks To Terrorize (Video)
Ryan Midnight   |  

Deliver Us From Evil - Eric Bana

When Scott Derrickson came out with Sinister back in 2012, the director proved his worth in the realm of horror, bringing viewers some incredible scares via a crate filled with rolls of chilling 8mm film. Now the director and writer is back with his latest entry, Deliver Us From Evil, which explores evil in its most ethereal form and continues to build on the trend of bringing “based on true events” stories to the big screen.

The first trailer for the movie, which stars Edgar Ramirez, Eric Bana and Olivia Munn, was recently released and it shows definite promise in unleashing dread upon the masses. You can check out the trailer, as well as the full synopsis here after the jump!

SXSW: ‘Space Station 76’ Sci-Fi Comedy Acquired By Sony For International Distribution
Ryan Midnight   |  

Space Station 76

If you haven’t heard of Space Station 76 yet, this is a film you need to keep an eye on when it finally hits theaters. The film, which has been in production since 2012, finally made its debut at SXSW this weekend, and distribution rights to the film have already been snagged by Sony Pictures for all international markets save for the United States, which will be handled by Preferred Content.

Space Station 76 has great premise, to make a science fiction dramedy in the future, using the mindset of the 1970s (thus the 76) as to what we thought the future would look like. Think Space: 1999, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, or the original Battlestar Galactica to get a feel for this approach – huge clunky robots, wood paneling, white structural backgrounds, and of course 70’s fashion sense.

Could Jean-Claude Van Damme Return In A Future ‘Expendables’ Movie?
Ryan Midnight   |  

Jean-Claude Van Damme - Expendables 2

Jean-Claude Van Damme gave a fantastic performance in The Expendables 2 as the aptly named Jean Vilain though, for reasons we’ll leave vague here on the off chance you haven’t seen the film yet, he would not be able to return for a future installment. With JCVD, much like the rest of the 80s and 90s action superstars currently enjoying a bit of a renaissance, it’s a shame we won’t be able to see him take on Sly Stallone and the rest of the crew again. Or could we?

Van Damme has openly expressed his desire and willingness to return to the franchise, along with a bit of a potential teaser that could bring the muscles from Brussels back for more van damage. Check out what he had to say here after the jump!

SXSW: ‘Amazing Spider-Man 2’ Glut Of Villains Addressed By Marc Webb (Minor Spoilers)
Ryan Midnight   |  

Marc Webb

As promotional material, trailers, and posters began to emerge for Marc Webb’s upcoming sequel The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which featured shots of main villain Electro along with Green Goblin, Rhino, and allusions to Vulture and Doc Ock, fans began to worry, and rightly so, that too many characters were being shoehorned in. Comparisons to Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 3, which featured Sandman, Venom, and New Goblin, were immediately made and not in a good way.

This weekend at South By SouthWest (SXSW), Webb was at a Q&A where an attendee brought up the Spider-Man 3 comparison and the concerns of the movie being undone by having too many villains. Webb responded in kind, which you read below. This comes with some minor spoilers, so proceed with caution.

‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ TV Series Hits Cable and International Netflix Next Week
Ryan Midnight   |  

From Dusk Till Dawn TV Series

Fledgling cable channel El Rey Network is set to premiere the new 10-episode television series From Dusk Till Dawn next week. The series is the first entry into serialized television for Robert Rodriguez, who directed the original 1996 movie of the same name and which the show takes its premise from.

Just like the movie, the series will take place over the course of about a day and follow two bank robbing brothers, Seth and Richie, who make for the border with a family they’ve taken hostage. When they make a detour at a strip club, all hell breaks loose after they discover the club is inhabited by vampires. Since the twist of the original film is well-known, it will be interesting to see how the series draws out the plot while still keeping within the same time frame.
