Tom Cruise in Quentin Tarantino‘s Charles Manson movie? It might happen! As the bidding war for Tarantino’s ninth film (which is set in Los Angeles in 1969 with the Manson family murders as a backdrop) heats up, a new potential cast member has surfaced: Tom Cruise. While the prospect of adding Cruise to the cast might be a long shot, the vision of Cruise and Tarantino working together is certainly intriguing.

Update: A new synopsis for Halloween has been released and we’ve added it to the article below.

If the upcoming Halloween reboot wanted to get our attention, this is a great way to do it. Jamie Lee Curtis, who had her big break as the “final girl” in John Carpenter‘s 1978 horror masterpiece, will return as Laurie Strode in the new movie, which is due out in 2018.

And if you’re scratching your head and wondering how this is possible…that just means you’ve seen all of the Halloween movies. We’ll get to that in a moment.

manipulated studio logos

Studio logos serve a general purpose for any movie. They can suggest a type of film – people have a basic idea of what a Disney movie entails – or simply a sense of pomp and circumstance. While there’s no shortage of studio or production company logos, there aren’t as many cases of filmmakers playing around with those logos in front of their movies. This list highlights 25 such unique cases over 80 years, from the goofy to the ominous.

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot

Over the past few years, Kevin Smith has branched out beyond what came to be known as his View Askewniverse film roster to try his hand at some different kinds of movies. There was the dark thriller Red State; the creepy thriller Tusk; and the hodgepodge of Clerks, Canada, and Gremlins with Nazi sausages that was Yoga Hosers. Plus we’re still supposed to get Moose Jaws as the third film in what Kevin Smith calls his True North Trilogy.

More recently, Kevin Smith was looking to go back to the well with Clerks III and Mallrats 2 (the latter of which was supposed to be turned into a TV series instead), but it appears both projects have hit rather big snags. That’s not stopping Kevin Smith from being just like the rest of Hollywood by cashing in on any nostalgia that fans may have for his movies, because now he’s working on something called Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. You can find out all the details after the jump. Read More »

Halloween Sequel

In May 2016, we learned that Blumhouse, producer of The Conjuring, Paranormal Activity, Insidious, Sinister and The Visit, would be teaming with Miramax to co-finance a new Halloween movie. Not long after, we heard that Oculus director Mike Flanagan was in talks to direct. Well, it looks like that isn’t happening after all.

Instead, David Gordon Green and Danny McBride will be writing and directing the new Halloween movie with John Carpenter serving as executive producer and consultant on the project.

Margot Robbie in Focus

You don’t have to care at all about ice skating to find the story of figure skaters Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan to be one of the most jaw-dropping and mesmerizing tales of greed, ambition, and low-rent crime to ever transpire outside of a Coen brothers movie. So yeah, put I, Tonya on your radar, because the always wonderful Margot Robbie will be playing the disgraced Olympian in Craig Gillespie‘s new movie. Oh, and our first look at Robbie as Harding on the set of the film has arrived.

Halloween Sequel

UPDATE: Bloody Disgusting reports Oculus director Mike Flanagan is in talks to direct the Halloween remake. Nothing official has been revealed yet, but for now it sounds like he’s the man for the job. Not my first choice for the job, but Oculus is certainly an underrated horror flick, so this could be a good move. Our original story from late night on May 23rd follows.

Legends never die. After years of Dimension Films trying to figure out what to do with the Halloween franchise, the company lost the rights to the iconic horror series that started with John Carpenter‘s classic film. Out of nowhere a surprise announcement came from Blumhouse Productions revealing that they are teaming with Miramax to co-finance a new Halloween sequel. Before you get all bent out of shape about the franchise not knowing when to die, director John Carpenter will be on board the film as executive producer.

Charlie Kaufman Confessions of a Dangerous Mind

It’s not an accident Confessions of a Dangerous Mind wasn’t shown as last week’s Charlie Kaufman retrospective. Although the Anomalisa writer and co-director received sole credit on George Clooney‘s directorial debut, he had very little involvement in the film, and he wasn’t happy with the end result.

After the jump, read Charlie Kaufman’s thoughts on Confessions of a Dangerous Mind.

Perillo’s latest print pays tribute to Pulp Fiction, and you can get your hands on it right now. Read More »

Clerks Budget

If you’re a Kevin Smith fan, then you know that the filmmaker’s career was launched after he made the black-and-white indie comedy Clerks for a measly budget.
