When we first reported on the Naked Gun reboot, we wrote that star Ed Helms was “the new Leslie Nielsen.” As it turns out, that’s not quite accurate. Hit the jump to find out the relation between Helms’ character and Nielsen’s. Also:

- Brad Fuller offers plot details on The Purge 2
- … and hints at a Jason-free Friday the 13th…

Even though most of us have chosen to forget it, the Paranormal Activity spoof A Haunted House starring Marlon Wayans actually came out earlier this year. Not only that, it grossed $60 million worldwide against a budget of $2.5 million, making it a bonafide hit. Who knew?
The studio knew, that’s who, and they’ve already shot a follow up. A Haunted House 2 directed by Michael Tiddes is scheduled for release March 28, 2014 and a teaser trailer is now out. The plot is genius. Wayans’ character moves out of his one haunted house to…wait for it…another haunted house! Hilarity ensues.

There’s a good bit of “maybe, eventually” sequel news today; I’ll let readers decide whether the best story is Hayao Miyazaki saying that a Nausicaa sequel directed by Hideaki Anno (Neon Genesis Evangelion) would be OK by him, or whether the top spot goes to Chris Carter saying that he still wants to make a third X-Files film, and that he’d like Simon Pegg to appear in it, too.
In addition to those items, after the break you’ll find:
- A few details on The Raid 2: Berandal,
- Joy Ride 3 gets (an actor who played) Jason Voorhees,
- A Haunted House 2 traps Jaime Pressly,
- and new Insidious: Chapter 2 images.
