Two New Alien TV Series Reportedly In The Works

A new rumor from HN Entertainment is reporting that Ridley Scott still has plenty more plans for the Alien franchise, with new series in development for Hulu. The report suggests that the series could adopt an anthology format, with each individual season covering a different region or era of the Alien universe.

The second series currently has no details, but as this is all speculation, take it with a grain of salt. However, with the Disney/Fox merger going through in a month, it makes sense.

First Trailer for Child’s Play Now Online

The first trailer for the upcoming reboot of Child’s Play is now online, revealing a contemporary re-imagining of the classic horror film. While in the film, the new “Smart Toy” is referred to as Buddi, he’ll clearly take on the name Chucky as it’s spoken out loud in the trailer.

New, Horrifying Trailer for Pet Sematary Now Online

The latest trailer for Stephen King’s Pet Sematary is now online, with the new footage revealing a key change to the story, with the older Ellie being the child resurrected, rather than the young Gage. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura explains why they made the change. “Gage is so young, you can’t really do that much with him,” he says. “So this way, we’re able to really get underneath our affected child. We’re able to get into the psychological horror of a child [coming back] because of her age.”

Pet Sematary hits theaters on April 5th. A day that’s shaping up to be quite a day for movie releases.

CBS All Access has shared the first trailer for Jordan Peele’s upcoming reboot of the classic horror anthology series, The Twilight Zone. While the trailer gives us little in the way of footage, we get to hear Peele’s hosting voice, which is fantastic and well suited to the role.

Chucky TV Series In The Works at SYFY

It looks like the upcoming reboot of the classic horror franchise isn’t going to be the only place to get your Child’s Play kick. According to Deadline, SYFY has picked up the rights to develop a television series starring horror’s favorite kid’s toy. On top of that, franchise creator Don Mancini is overseeing the creation of the series.

“I’ve long wanted to bring Chucky to television and Syfy is the perfect network for us,” said Mancini. “The show will be a fresh take on the franchise, allowing us to explore Chucky’s character with a depth that is uniquely afforded by the television series format, while staying true to the original vision that has terrorized audiences for over three decades now.”

The Invisible Man Finds Its Director

After the massive failure that was The Mummy, and Universal’s attempt at its “Dark Universe,” the studio has decided to put a stop to the shared universe attempt and “take an individualized approach to its classic monster movies.” The first step, according to Variety, is appointing Leigh Whannell (Upgrade) to the director’s chair on its upcoming adaptation of The Invisible Man.

Johnny Depp was attached to the project for the last year and a half, but is believed to no longer be in the lead role as the studio movies in a different direction. Additionally, the new films are said to be “rooted in horror, with no restrictions on budget, tone, or rating.” Good news for fans of classic monster movies.

Resident Evil Series in the Works at Netflix

While the reboot of the Resident Evil film franchise is still up and running, it would seem that it has a little more up its sleeve. According to Deadline, Netflix is working with Constantin Film to bring the survival horror franchise to the streaming service in a live-action television series.

The project is in the early stages of development, and is expected to “explore the dark inner workings of the Umbrella Corporation and the new world order caused by the outbreak of the T-virus.”

Anne Hathaway Joins The Witches Remake

It looks like that upcoming remake of the film based on the Roald Dahl classic, that has horrified children for years, The Witches, is moving forward. Variety is reporting that Anne Hathaway has joined the film in the role originally made famous by Anjelica Huston, as the Grand High Witch.

The update is said to be set closer to Roald Dahl’s original story, set in the “gothic south in the 1960’s.” Robert Zemeckis is writing the script with Alfonso Cuaron and Guillermo Del Toro on as producers, and Nicolas Roeg, the director of the original film, in the director’s chair. Quite an impressive team, already.

First Trailer for Jordan Peele’s Us Debuts

Jordan Peele gave the world a Christmas gift yesterday with the reveal of the first trailer for his follow-up to the award-winning Get Out, simply titled Us. The teaser gives us little in the way of story, but reveals that Lupita Nyong’o and Winston Duke (reuniting from Black Panther) play a family vacationing with some friends that turns into a psychological nightmare.

Set in present day along the iconic Northern California coastline, Us, from Monkeypaw Productions, stars Oscar® winner Lupita Nyong’o as Adelaide Wilson, a woman returning to her beachside childhood home with her husband, Gabe (Black Panther’s Winston Duke), and their two children (Shahadi Wright Joseph, Evan Alex) for an idyllic summer getaway. Haunted by an unexplainable and unresolved trauma from her past and compounded by a string of eerie coincidences, Adelaide feels her paranoia elevate to high-alert as she grows increasingly certain that something bad is going to befall her family. After spending a tense beach day with their friends, the Tylers (Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss, Tim Heidecker, Cali Sheldon, Noelle Sheldon), Adelaide and her family return to their vacation home. When darkness falls, the Wilsons discover the silhouette of four figures holding hands as they stand in the driveway. Us pits an endearing American family against a terrifying and uncanny opponent: doppelgängers of themselves.

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.”
