Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark

Alvin Schwartz‘s Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark may have been presented as a collection of children’s horror stories that is rooted in folklore and urban legend, but it is the basis of why those same kids who read all three volumes are fans of the horror genre now. I remember reading at least one book when I was a kid, but I’d never thought they would be able to turn all of that into a film.

Now, CBS Films will be releasing an adaptation of the same name. In it, a group of young people attempt to solve a mystery that involves a series of spectacularly horrific deaths in their small hometown. Check out the first look at Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark here below.

The Mummy

Universal Pictures has gotten a hell of a lot of mileage out of The Mummy series over the years. The 1932 original film helped establish Boris Karloff as a major horror star and spawned five sequels, including 1955’s Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy. Then in 1999 the studio revived the property as a big-budget Raiders of the Lost Ark-style adventure with state-of-the-art visual effects and reaped huge rewards. The revitalized Mummy franchise made stars out of Brendan Fraser and Rachel Weisz and spawned two sequels of inferior quality, but still proved to be blockbusters for the studio, not to mention inspiring the Scorpion King spin-off series.

The last sequel, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, was released just four years ago, but now Universal is looking to reboot the franchise once again, and this time they’ve tapped Jon Spaihts to write the new movie.

Dead Island

Back in February it was announced that the new video game title from Techland and Deep Silver, Dead Island, would be turned into a movie before the game itself even hit store shelves. The news was later denied by Deep Silver, who said that many parties were interested in turning it into a movie, but no deals had been struck yet. One thing was for sure, however, and that is that the buzz was clearly not coming from the game itself (no gameplay footage had been released at that point) but from an incredible cinematic trailer that had been released a few days earlier and took the world by storm.

As it turns out, the man who was first reported to have acquired the rights to make a Dead Island movie, Sean Daniels and his Sean Daniel Company, is involved in the project along with Stefan Sonnefeld. But its Lionsgate who has stepped in to option the rights to develop the movie, putting all the pieces into place to get this bad boy moving forward.
