Sony Is Unleashing Venom

Sony pictures is in deep development on the "Spider-Man" spin off based on the Venom, the villain that received lack of attention in "Spider-Man 3".
The Hollywood Reporter has already reported that Sony has taken a look at one draft that was written by Jacob Estes (he wrote "Mean Creek"), after they read the draft that quickly moved to seeking new writers to pen other drafts.
Rumors are that Topher Grace who played Venom in "Spider-Man 3" might be taking the role, but everything is unclear and I rather someone else be casted into the role of Eddie Brock/Venom.
All I know is they can do so much with this movie. In "Spider-Man 3" he was just a host and it wasn't until the very end we actually get to see Venom attached to Eddie Brock.
His character in "Spider-Man 3" was underdeveloped and lacked everything that makes him Venom in the comic books.
Personally I would really enjoy watching a "Venom" movie, but it really has to be everything the fans want.
Due to movies like "The Dark Knight" and "Iron Man," that gave fans all they wanted, will make other comic book movies face numerous challenges.

Spidey Is Swinging Back Into Theaters In 2011

It's official Columbia Pictures will be making "Spider-Man 4" and they are looking for a May 2011 release date.

Sam Raimi, the director of Spider-Man one through three was recently at Comic-Con and he will be producing and he did show interest in directing it.

His only hope is that they will show him the script when it's done.

He also said if he did direct it the original cast would return. Yet, do we really want another Spider-Man?

"Spider-Man 3" was a boring movie that loved itself too much and ruined one of the comic book's iconic villains - Venom.

I mean the third film tied up all the story lines that were introduced during one and two and gave us an ending. It wasn't good, but it was an ending.

Why don't they all forget about Spider-Man, leave it as a trilogy and move on to another hero. Spider-Man 4 can only be good if they act like the third one never happened and follow the same formula they used for the second film.

Prepare Yourself For Friday the 13th

The Internet was very lucky today when the first high-res look at the brand new Friday the 13th teaser poster was released. The poster was originally debuted at this past weekend's San Diego Comic-Con.
The new Friday the 13th will be a re-boot of the franchise. The movie is being directing by Marcus Nispel (who is well know for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake) and written by Damian Shannon and Mark Swift (writers of Freddy VS Jason).
The movie's plot is as follows ... After the supposed death of her son at a summer camp, a mother begins to kill the camp employees. After her death at the hands of the remaining employees, her son returns to continue her bloody work.
According to Internet Movie Database there was only a few details released about the movie to get the fans excited.
1.) The film is meant to stand on it's own with a definitive ending. It's not intended to have a sequel, nor is it part of a trilogy, although they are open to doing a sequel.
2.) Director Marcus Nispel did direct multiple endings.
3.) This is not an origin movie, but it does explore Jason's childhood and Mrs. Voorhees is in it. It apparently combines the best elements of Friday the 13th's 2 through 4.
4.) Jason will be fast and smart in this movie. Instead of chasing people around; he set's people up.
A trailer was released to the comic-con audience and was leaked online, but were all taken done. When it's officially released on the Internet I will post it.
Friday the 13th will hit theaters Friday, Feb. 13, 2009!

Are You Ready To Scream Again?

Wes Craven was recently at the San Diego Comic Con and he was discussing his latest film 25/8. The movie will focus on a serial killer returning to his hometown to stalk seven children who share the same birthday as the date he was allegedly put to rest.
This movie actually sounds a lot like Halloween to me, but it's Wes Craven so we can expect a decent horror movie.
There are also several other projects that Craven seems to either be connected to or fans are waiting for him to be official connected to.
Some of these projects that are official and have been recently announced at Comic Con '08 and they are Scream 4, Last House on the Left (remake) and A Nightmare on Elm Street (remake)
According to Internet Movie Database Craven has said he has not been contacted to direct the recently announced Scream 4.
He also stated that Bob Weinstein (the producer of the Scream series) has contacted his agent and if he is offered the job he will not say no.
Yet, Craven is looking for a script that is actually complete. During the production of Scream 2 and 3 there was a lot of changes and work being done to the scripts as they filmed and it seems he doesn't want to go through that again.
The Nightmare on Elm Street remake has officially casted a writer, Wesley Strick who has wrote movies such as Cape Fear, Arachnophobia and Wolf.
What we know officially about the movie is that it will be a re-imagining of the dream killer, Freddy Krueger. No one can officially say if it will be all about Freddy or a true remake of the original horror classic.
As for Last House on the Left it's already in post-production and will be released to theaters March 6, 2009.
