Despite earning a nice little fanbase for All the Boys Love Mandy Lane and forgetting to wear any clothes in The Informers, Amber Heard‘s closest thing to a break-out moment probably remains her bit part as the first zombie encountered by Jesse Eisenberg in Zombieland.
Now she’ll appear as “a stalker student” in The Applicant, a thriller to be directed by Eric Bross. This is from Arclight Films, the same company (essentially) behind the sci-fi Shakespeare film Henry 5. The script, by Jeff Rothberg and Francis X McCarthy, is about “an underage prep school senior obsessed with admission to Yale who will stop at nothing to get her way, including seducing and ruining the life of an admissions director with connections to a top Yale professor.” Hopefully, by the time this is shot, we’ll have had a chance to see Amber Heard in The Rum Diary, opposite Johnny Depp; she’s also in Drive Angry and And Soon the Darkness.

When Clive Barker had the extradimensional Pinhead strike terror into the hearts of his victims with the now iconic line “We have such sights to show you,” I doubt a PG-13 rating is what he had in mind. But that appears to the direction that the Weinsteins are headed with their remake of Barker’s classic horror tale, as indicated by a recent report claiming they’re “looking for someone to make the franchise fitted for ‘teens’”.
Moreover, they have evidently found the guy for the job, and a leading gal as well. Learn more after the break. Read More »
Did someone declare today Drive Angry 3D day and we didn’t get the memo? I only ask because not only has the brand new theatrical trailer just come online, but the poster as well. From My Bloody Valentine 3D director Patrick Lussier (no relation) and starring Nicolas Cage, Amber Heard, William Fichtner, David Morse, Billy Burke and Tom Atkins, Drive Angry 3D is about a man who breaks out of hell to get violent, R-rated revenge on the cult who killed his daughter and stole her baby. Footage from the film premiered at Comic Con and was one of the biggest hits of the convention. It’s scheduled for release February 11, 2011. Click below for the full poster and trailer. Read More »

After seeing concept art and a couple of still shots from Patrick Lussier‘s Drive Angry, I started to wonder if the film might be the sort of action film that few filmmakers seem to get right these days — a dirty, slightly weird, possibly quite violent revenge story. (We see a lot of revenge stories, but few that are acutally decent.)
Today at the San Diego Comic Con, Summit and Lussier showed off a couple minutes of footage, and brought Nicolas Cage, Amber Heard and William Fichtner up on stage to talk about the film. Highlights are after the break. Read More »

Just the other day we showed you a few concept art images from Patrick Lussier‘s Drive Angry 3D, which stars Nicolas Cage as a father brought back from Hell to avenge crimes against his daughter and granddaughter. Now there’s the first photo of Cage, looking even more insane than usual. There’s also an image of Amber Heard, who lounges in a muscle car thinking that if people had ever had the chance to see her in All the Boys Love Mandy Lane, she’d have been cast over Megan Fox in Transformers.
