Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark Movie

A teaser trailer for Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, produced by Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water, Pan’s Labyrinth) and directed by André Øvredal (Trollhunter, The Autopsy of Jane Doe), has been released online.

The movie is based on the ’80s and ’90s book series of the same name written by Alvin Schwartz, with artist Stephen Gammell creating nightmare inducing illustrations to accompany his words.

Halloween

Remember back in February when it was announced that the never-ending Halloween franchise was preparing to spawn yet another installment of the kill crazy adventures of everyone’s favorite silent, slaughtering wraith Michael Myers? The word they were using this time was “recalibration,” because “reboot” had officially become so last decade.

It’s still happening, and whether or not that’s a good thing depends entirely on you. Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the screenwriters of four Saw sequels, all three Feast flicks, the 2009 horror sleeper hit The Collector and its 2012 follow-up The Collection, and Piranha 3DD, are hard at work on the motion picture that is now being referred to publicly as Halloween Returns. Dunstan, who directed The Collector and The Collection, is also currently on board to direct.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz and Stephen Gammell

Just about a year ago it was reported that Saw writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan were working on an adaptation of the horror books Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. Now comes word that a new writer is being brought in for the project.

It’s being reported that CBS Films has hired screenwriter John August to come in and take over writing duties. August has previously worked on multiple Tim Burton scripts, including Big Fish, Corpse Bride, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Dark Shadows, and Frankenweenie.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz and Stephen Gammell

Did you ever read Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark as a kid, leading to much regret as a mostly sleepless or nightmare-laced night followed? Yeah, me too. Me too.

The collection of short horror tales by Alvin Schwartz spanned three books, and the unsettling illustrations (so long as you get the older books with art by Stephen Gammell, NOT the disgraceful newer ones I just found out exist) alone were enough to send ice rushing through your veins. Now someone wants to bring these terrors to life.

It’s been announced that CBS Films has grabbed onto the project after a pitch by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan.

God of War

Not to be out done by the news that Columbia and Avi Arid will be releasing a film adaptation of Metal Gear Solid, comes the latest development from newly hired God of War writers Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan. For those who don’t know, the game follows Kratos, a fallen Spartan general who seeks to carry out his revenge against the very gods who condemned him.

Melton and Dunstan’s writing credits, which include Feast and Saw IV – VII, might not bode well for the God of War film, but they did pen the rewrites for Pacific Rim.

God of War

It’s been a long, long time since we heard anything about the hit video game franchise, God of War, being turned into a movie. Once upon a time Brett Ratner was attached to the project, but it was well over three years ago now that we were told that Ratner was putting the movie on the back burner and moving on to “Trump Heist,” which of course became Tower Heist.

Now the mighty Kratos has resurfaced, and it appears Universal is ready to give it another go. The studio has hired Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan to rewrite a draft of the script penned by executive producer David Self.

Piranha 3DD

So what’s the big difference between the new red band trailer for Dimension Films’ summer splatter spectacle sequel Piranha 3DD and the tamer theatrical trailer that was released almost a month ago? In the words of Chris Griffin, “BOOBIES!”

You can watch the red band trailer here below.

In addition to the bounty of bouncing boobage on display here we have David Hasselhoff in a cheeky cameo, Ving Rhames getting all Planet Terror-ed up, Gary Busey getting gnawed up by piranha guppies, and the lovely Danielle Panabaker doing a Shivers/Slither bathtub homage. The Feast team of director John Gulager and screenwriters Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton (with additional assistance from producer Joel Soisson) are on hand to orchestrate another glorious ballet of carnage and chesticles.

Piranha 3DD

The 3D horror remake sequel Piranha 3DD was originally supposed to open last November before it was pulled from Dimension Films’ release schedule and given an unspecified 2012 premiere date, but that didn’t stop the studio from releasing a new trailer today.

You can watch it here below.

Alexandre Aja, the director of the 2010 hit Piranha 3D, has turned over his directorial duties to John Gulager this time around.
