For some, parenthood is easy and comes almost naturally. For others, it can be a bit of a challenge. And I cannot say that I am an authority figure on motherhood, given my clear lack of experience, but Jason Reitman‘s Tully, a comedy-drama starring Charlize Theron and Mackenzie Davis, is probably one of the most honest depictions of what it is like to be a mother in a contemporary age. Check out my full review of the film here below.

That didn’t take too long.

Just a week or so after losing Lily Collins, Deadline reports that the upcoming remake/reboot of the Evil Dead franchise regained a leading lady, this time in the form of Suburgatory star Jane Levy.

The new Evil Dead will be helmed by Fede Alvarez, who also wrote the film’s script which is currently getting the once over from current ‘it’ scribe Diablo Cody, and will find Levy as Mia, “a character that corresponds to Ash,” the original series protagonist.

A little back story.

After it was announced that not only would the beloved Evil Dead franchise would be rebooted with a script from Diablo Cody and director Fede Alvarez, but that one Lily Collins would be the star of the film. However, that’s not the case.

Variety’s Jeff Sneider tweeted that the actress would be leaving the project due to scheduling issues. No one has popped up replacing the young thespian, but this is such a hot project, it’s impossible to see this thing staying vacant for too long.

The Evil Dead

Ahh, yes, the feared remake of Sam Raimi‘s absurdly brilliant horror flick, The Evil Dead, is back in the news.

First of all an official release date has been set, which means all of you who were hoping this would end up dead and buried before ever reaching the big screen look to be out of luck. The remake has laid claim to the April 12, 2013 date for Evil Dead, though, as has become very common, that could be changed in the future.

Now for some supposed details on the plot of the movie, which may or may not end up being truth.

Jason Reitman’s ‘Young Adult’ Gets A Killer Poster

Sure, it may not be playing any of this year’s major festivals, but Jason Reitman‘s Young Adult is still one of the biggest Fall film season players, particularly given the film’s pedigree.

From Oscar-nominated director Reitman and Oscar-winner Diablo Cody, the film stars A-listers Charlize Theron, Patrick Wilson, and even comedian Patton Oswalt, and follows the story of a writer who tries to win back her newly wedded old flame.

THR has the first poster for the film, and it looks absolutely awesome (see it in full here below). Now, with this poster, you don’t get much with regards to the actual film, but with the main lead being a 30-something young-adult-fiction writer, this thing really just feels awesome.

Sam Raimi’s ‘The Evil Dead’ Remake Hits The Fast–Track With Bruce Campbell, Diablo Cody & New Director

A reboot, remake, sequel, and whatever other word you want to use has seemed to have been talked about when it comes to Sam Raimi‘s cult classic Evil Dead series. Every once in a while we’d hear something about it still happening, but nothing substantial had ever come of it until now.

Star Bruce Campbell joined the Twitter the other day and continued ensuring us that it was happening, but instead of the reassurance coming and going as it had so many times before, some more official announcements have now followed.

It’s being reported that The Evil Dead will in fact be remade, and that the project has been placed on the fast–track to production. Raimi and Rob Tapert will produce through their Ghost House Pictures, along with Campbell (though it’s still uncertain whether he will return to star, or whether the Ash character will even be used at all).

Diablo Cody Looks To Put Her Own Spin On ‘Sweet Valley High’

Sweet Valley High

Universal Pictures is in negotiations to acquire the rights to make a feature-length movie based on the popular book series Sweet Valley High. If the deal works out smoothly, the studio already has Juno and Jennifer’s Body writer Diablo Cody in line to pen the adaption. Cody set the project in motion with Mason Novick, who together went looking for the rights and made their pitch to Universal. Cody and Novick would also be producing along with Marc Platt.

Cody has settled into a groove where high school kids are a prime element to her stories. Juno, Jennifer’s Body, and her Showtime series The United States of Tara all have characters who are dealing with that time in their lives, so this would certainly be a fitting project for her, though some may want to see her spread her wings and fly a little.

Comic Review: ‘Jennifer’s Body’ HC

Jennifer’s Body
Hardcover Edition
Written by Rick Spears
Art by Jim Mahfood, Ming Doyle, Nikki Cook, Tim Seeley
Letters by Troy Peteri
BOOM! Studios
Release date: August 26, 2009

The hardcover graphic novel Jennifer’s Body is not a straight comic book adaptation of the upcoming film of the same name, although at a glance, buyers might not realize that. Rather, this graphic novel expands upon the Jennifer universe, created in the screenplay by Diablo Cody (Juno), and contains a collection of stories that tie into the events from the movie.

The main story of the film centers on Jennifer (played by Megan Fox), a beautiful high school cheerleader who every girl wants to be friends with and every boy wants to date. Her luck runs out one day after a demon enters her body when she’s used as a Satanic sacrifice. After that, Jennifer begins to kill and feed upon the boys at her school, while her best friend Needy plots to stop her. From previews and trailers, the movie has the dark comedy stylings and wicked female lead of Jawbreakers, but with more sex and gore.

The graphic novel, written by Black Metal‘s Rick Spears, actually has very little in it of Jennifer herself, though we do see her go in for the kill several times. Instead, we follow her soon-to-be victims and learn all about what makes them tick, so that when we see the film, we’ll know if they really got what was coming to them.
