Summit has been developing a film called Exorcism Diaries for a couple years, originally recruiting Barbara Marshall to write back in 2013, with other writers tackling it in the meantime. The film was originally said to be based on a book that purports to chronicle the true stories behind the film The Exorcist, and while that may be just a good marketing angle from Summit, we’ll always take a good exorcism movie.
Now Exorcism Diaries has an even better chance to be good, as the two people who made Starry Eyes, Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch, have been brought on to rewrite and direct. Read More »

Furious 7 was a record-breaking success, but to paraphrase that old Biblical saying, man cannot live on Fast and Furious movies alone. So Vin Diesel is shaking things up a bit with The Last Witch Hunter, in which he plays — yup — the last witch hunter.
Immortal and kind of unhappy about it, Diesel’s Kaulder is locked in a centuries-long battle against a witch queen (Julie Engelbrecht) who wants to unleash a plague on humanity. Fortunately, he’s got some help in the form of Rose Leslie, of Game of Thrones and Downton Abbey fame. Elijah Wood and Michael Caine also star.

“There can be only one (sexiest man alive)!” There is going to be a Highlander reboot, and the producers reportedly want Tom Cruise to be in the film. But he wouldn’t be the hero who learns that his own strange birthright automatically enrolled him in a violent game amongst immortals competing for the ultimate price.
