First Trailer for James Gunn Produced Brightburn

We’ve known for a while that Sony Pictures would be releasing a horror film, produced by James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy), but details were kept quiet on the project. Now, we have an official title, cast, and even a first trailer for the upcoming twist on a classic superhero origin, Brightburn. The film is directed by David Yarovesky (The Hive) and written by Mark Gunn & Brian Gunn. Elizabeth Banks (The Hunger Games) stars alongside David Denman (Power Rangers), Jackson A. Dunn (Shameless), Matt Jones (Home) and Meredith Hagner (Younger).

“What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister? With Brightburn, the visionary filmmaker of Guardians of the Galaxy and Slither presents a startling, subversive take on a radical new genre: superhero horror.”

Hellboy Casts Thomas Haden Church

lobster

The reboot of Hellboy continues to up its amazing-factor, with Discussing Film revealing that Thomas Haden Church (Spider-Man 3) has been cast in the role of Lobster Johnson in the upcoming film. As crazy as it sounds, Church actually revealed his role in an untitled comic book film earlier this year in an interview with JoBlo, and it’s now been confirmed as the vigilante.

In the comics, Lobster Johnson is a 1930’s pulp hero, established in comic books and radio, with the public believing him to be fictional. However, there was a real Lobster Johnson that protected the world from mobsters, Nazis, and paranormal threats, eventually crossing paths with the B.P.R.D. Hellboy hits theaters on April 12th, 2019.

Will Patton Cast as Villain in Swamp Thing

avery

The DC Universe streaming series, Swamp Thing, continues to round out its cast, with the addition of Will Patton (Halloween, Armageddon) as the show’s villain, Avery Sunderland. According to Deadline‘s description on Sunderland, this take will “serve as the de facto patriarch of his Louisiana hometown, always giving back to the community. His benevolent veneer, however, masks a ruthless determination to harness the power of the swamp for profit.” 

In the original comics, Sunderland was a minor character setting up the introduction of The Floronic Man, so it’s entirely possible we may see a major villain in the second season of the series.

Jordan Peele Set to Host Twilight Zone Revival for CBS

After rumors of Jordan Peele (Get Out) producing the new Twilight Zone revival for CBS All Access, many of us were hoping the acclaimed actor/director would take on hosting duties, as well. Now, CBS has made it official, as Jordan Peele takes the reins from the legendary Rod Serling, the original iconic voice of the horror anthology.

Rod Serling was an uncompromising visionary who not only shed light on social issues of his time, but prophesied issues of ours,” Peele said in a statement, according to TV Line. “I’m honored to carry on his legacy to a new generation of audiences as the gatekeeper of The Twilight Zone.”

Alan Wake Series in The Works

Alan

Variety is reporting that writer Peter Calloway (Legion) will helm an adaptation of Remedy’s 2010 Microsoft exclusive, Alan Wake, with backing from the game studio, Contradiction Films, and Alan Wake writer Sam Lake. The original game follows the titular character, a novelist, caught in the supernatural happenings of a mysterious town named Bright Falls.

“The story of the original game is our starting point, the seed which will grow into the bigger story we’re exploring in the show. We’ll be expanding the lore of this crazy and dark universe and diving deeper into certain aspects of it than the game ever did.

Not only that, but through the years we’ve worked on multiple game concepts and stories for Alan Wake’s world that have never seen the light of day. All of this material will function as potential source material for the show.”
