Actress Lela Loren, currently appearing on the web series H+ and from Reign Over Me, The Shield and Lost, has been cast in a supporting role in Todd Phillips’ The Hangover Part III according to Variety. She’ll play an attractive police officer in the mysterious film, which is currently shooting on a remote highway outside Bakersfield, CA according to On Location Vacations.
I knew there was one sequel to Wrong Turn, mostly because it was directed by Joe Lynch. But the series has continued and now Quiet Earth has posted a trailer for the fifth film, out October 23 on Blu-ray. It’s called Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines, watch the trailer below.
Are you a filmmaker who would like a shot at working with Michael Bay on the upcoming Transformers 4? Who wouldn’t? Bay is heading up a contest with Doritos where fans can make commercials for the snack chip and the two best will be aired during the Super Bowl. Then, which ever spot ranks higher on the popular USA Today Super Bowl Ad Meter will win the job working on Transformers 4. Read more at The Hollywood Reporter or head to Facebook for official rules.
Digital Spy posted the below viral clip from the upcoming Paranormal Activity 4. I’m trying to avoid any and everything from the film as I’m a huge fan of the franchise, so you should all discuss it in the comments below.
Speaking to Shock Till Ya Drop, Robert Rodriguez spoke about Sin City: A Dame to Kill For as well as a sequel to Predators. At the time of release, he wanted to continuing going making films in that world but it didn’t quite hit. He said the following in regards to a sequel at 20th Century Fox:
We were thinking about it. I don’t know, I’ll have to talk to them. They just had a regime change over there – we’ll see what happens.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is getting back into the acting game after a brief stop in politics and besides The Expendables 2 and upcoming Last Stand, one of the films many people hope happen is Terminator 5. Much has been said about it and the latest is really nothing. Schwarzenegger said the following in an interview with Empire (via Playlist):
I think (producer) Megan Ellison owns the rights to ‘Terminator 16,’ or whatever it is. They have been trying to put a script together but I’ve not seen it, so I’ve no idea. There’s nothing on the drawing board at this point. Nothing on the plan.
Finally, thanks to Moviefone we have this teaser poster for The Smurfs 2, which opens July 31, 2013. Clever.
