Scream tv series ghostface

For the past couple of years, MTV has been developing a Scream TV series based on the film franchise by Wes Craven and Kevin Williamson. As of this summer, they had a director and cast in place. But now we’re getting some head-scratching info about the very premise of the show.

‘The Conjuring’ Sequel Pushed to 2016 [Updated]

Conjuring 2 delayed

Just weeks after the Conjuring spin-off Annabelle opened in the US, New Line has pulled The Conjuring 2 off the 3015 schedule, pushing it into 2016.

Could this have anything to do with the good reception for Annabelle, which technically exists in the same series, but was a lot cheaper to make?  Read More »

Cabin Fever never really caught on as a franchise — Eli Roth‘s debut film made his career as a filmmaker, but the Cabin Fever films that followed have, er, struggled. (Ti West lobbied to have his name removed from the direct sequel after producers took control of the edit, and the prequel Patient Zero has had a low-key release.)

Now there’s a Cabin Fever remake brewing, which we heard about earlier this year. The new info is that Eli Roth is on board as exec producer. Even more weird than that is this fact: the remake will use the original script for the film, written by Roth and Randy Pearlstein. Read More »

However, while McCarthy will probably, eventually, end up in the new Ghostbusters film, she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, she not yet been cast. Watch McCarthy talk about the film, along with Lena Dunham and Ellen DeGeneres, below. Read More »
