Matt Reeves is returning to bring us another Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Sequel titled Planet War of the Planet of the Apes (2017). Fox will release this new movie in theaters on July 4, 2017. Other news is unavailable but I expect Andy Serkis will return as Caesar. I really love the title and a title like that really stresses action and I hope Matt Reeves delivers in full. Tell us in the comments what you think of the new title.

Samuel L. Jackson has officially joined The Blob Remake. Goldcrest Films sought out the popular actor and Samuel L. Jackson accepted. Jackson will star as “a biochemistry professor attempting to thwart the other-worldly predator discovered deep within the earth.” Simon West (The Expendables 2, Con Air) is set to direct the film. Jack Harris will executive produce this new Blob film as a returning producer to the franchise after directing The Blob (1958). Also producing are Richard Saperstein (Se7en, The Mist) and Brian Witten (Final Destination, Friday the 13th (2009)). They are also attached to the film adaptation of Stephen King‘s Cell (2015) movie which also stars Jackson. Chris Haney (Avatar, Avengers Assemble) will handle the VFX in post-production. With this many talents on the film, I am expecting something great.
Andrew Fleming‘s The Craft (1996) was a surprise hit horror movie that was all about teen witches creating their coven and the eventual downfall of the witch coven. Sony Pictures has decided to make The Craft Remake and has tapped Leigh Janiak (Honeymoon (2014)) to write the screenplay with Phil Graziadei. Doug Wick is returning to produce The Craft Remake along with Lucy Fisher. The original cast of The Craft (1996) included Robin Tunney, Fairuza Balk, Neve Campbell and Rachel True.
Alex Garland has been busy promoting his new movie Ex Machina (2015) but has also decided to clue us in on what has been put into motion almost 2 years ago for 28 Months Later. I for one was really shocked to hear the comment. Andrew Macdonald produced both 28 Days Later (2002) and 28 Weeks Later (2007). Alex Garland wrote 28 Days Later… (2002) and executive produced 28 Weeks Later (2007). Read on for what Alex Garland had to say because I do not wan to spoil it for you nor do I want to change his statement. 28 Weeks Later (2007) ended with a very big cliff hanger… now we wait for 28 Months Later!
CW has officially passed on the reboot for Tales From the Darkside TV Series Reboot which was written and executive produced by Joe Hill (Horns (2013)), Stephen King‘s son… Ouch! Reasons why CW passed… CW did not like the anthology format and there was no showrunner for the TV series. It is not certain if we will see the reboot of Tales From the Darkside on another network or streaming service. Kris Lemche was set as the main star in the horror anthology TV series.
Mercedes Mason (Quarantine 2: Terminal (2011), Three Veils (2011)) has been revealed as the latest cast member reveal for AMC‘s Fear The Walking Dead Season 1 TV Series. Mason will be a season regular with no extra details released yet. Mason will join already confirmed actors including Elizabeth Rodriguez, Cliff Curtis, Kim Dickens, Frank Dillane and Alycia Debnam Carey. AMC’s Fear The Walking Dead is set to premiere in Summer 2015 set in Los Angeles, USA. Executive producing the companion TV series for AMC’s The Walking Dead are Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, Greg Nicotero and David Alpert. You can watch the newer looking zombies, my guess, on Hulu this time around.
