Late August usually brings a bunch of studio horror movies and 2012 is no exception. A trailer has just arrived for one of them, The Apparition, starring Ashley Greene (Twilight), Tom Felton (Harry Potter) and Sebastian Stan (Captain America: The First Avenger).

The film is about a group of people who set out to test the theory that ghosts and goblins only exist because people believe in them. Turns out, they were right, and they unleash something that feeds off your fear. Seems to be a little bit Nightmare on Elm Street, a little bit Paranormal Activity and a little bit The Ring. Todd Lincoln‘s The Apparition opens August 24. Check out the trailer and poster for the film after the jump. Read More »

Way back in 2009, we reported on a couple of comic book adaptations in development: Lions, Tigers and Bears, about a boy whose stuffed animals come to life; and The Nye Incidents, based on a Devil’s Due comic about an alien abductee serial killer. Neither project got much farther than the early stages, however, and we eventually forgot about them altogether. (Or at least I did. Maybe you didn’t. I don’t know your life.)

Now, news comes that both projects are back on track again. Get updates on both, plus info on a potential Penny Arcade-inspired film, after the jump.

Ashley Greene Joins Todd Lincoln’s The Apparition

Dark Castle Entertainment

In May we told you that Todd Lincoln had signed on to will write and direct The Apparition for Joel Silver’s genre label Dark Castle Entertainment. But at the time, details about the project were being kept under wraps. The only thing we knew was that the story is said to be based on true events and involve a haunted house. The project is picking up steam now that Twilight star Ashley Greene is in talks to star, and Variety has some new detail… Apparently the story “centers on a young couple haunted by a supernatural presence unleashed during a college experiment.” And the project is being fast tracked, and will go into production in February 2010.

Lincoln’s short films Honey Pot and Xavier played to acclaim at film festicals, gaining the attention of a Los Angeles commercial and music video production company called Public Works. He has been directing commercials, music videos, and developing a potential feature film debut ever since. Lincoln had been attached to a remake of The Fly for Fox, and has since been developing a live-action adaptation of Hack/Slash for Rogue Pictures, and more recently became attached to an adaptation of Devil Due’s alien thriller graphic novel The Nye Incidents, also for Dark Castle.

I haven’t seen much of Lincoln’s work, as his short films aren’t available online. But I really dug his music video for Lucky Pool’s Judy and Mary. Check it out, embedded after the jump.
