Netflix Wins Bidding War for ‘Power,’ White Hot Spec Script (Exclusive)

Netflix Wins Bidding War for ‘Power,’ White Hot Spec Script (Exclusive)
Netflix has swooped in and nabbed “Power,” a spec script from Mattson Tomlin that was drawing a lot of interest and bids from multiple studios.

Details of the project are being kept under wraps, as is the sale’s price, but this was a hot one. “Power” is a sci-fi thriller and will be directed by Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman. The pair are long-time collaborators. They recently partnered on 2016’s “Nerve,” a thriller with James Franco and Emma Roberts that was a sleeper hit for Lionsgate. They also directed “Viral,” a twisty horror movie about a deadly contagion that came out the same year.

Joost and Schulman got their start with “Catfish,” a 2010 documentary about a young man whose internet romance takes an unexpected turn. The film was later turned into an MTV series of the same name. In addition, the pair directed “Paranormal Activity 3” and “Paranormal Activity 4.”

Paranormal Activity Reboot Could Happen at Blumhouse
Are you ready for another reboot that may be happening just a little bit too soon? It looks like one might be on the way, if one of the chief creative minds behind the Paranormal Activity franchise has anything to say about it. That's right, horror movie fans. It looks like Blumhouse Pictures would be open to a Paranormal Activity reboot, if writer Christopher Landon has an idea for one.

Jason Blum, head of Blumhouse Productions, and Christopher Landon, are both currently out promoting Happy Death Day, which was produced by Blumhouse and directed by Landon. They recently spoke with Cinepop and the subject of a possible Paranormal Activity reboot came up. While the studio doesn't currently have any plans for one, Blum is very open to the idea, if Landon has an idea for another movie in the very successful found footage horror franchise. Here's what he had to say about it.

Catfish Filmakers Negotiating to Direct Capcom’s Mega Man

  • Cinelinx
I know he’s existed out of a standalone game for quite some time but two directors want to bring Mega Man to the silver screen.

I have always liked Mega Man games. Since its debut on the Nintendo in 1987 the Blue Bomber also known as Rockman has starred in many games spanning many consoles whether they are home or portable. Recently mobile versions of the classics have been released but there’s not a lot of console love for old Mega as a standalone title. Maybe that will be changing soon because Henry Joost and Ariel Schulamn (Catfish, Paranormal Activity 4&5) want to bring this iconic character to life on the big screen. Apparently negotiations between Capcom and Twentieth Century Fox are in the final stages for the duo to pen and direct the full length feature.

Mega Man is the story of Doctor Light and Doctor Wily the

Review: Blair Witch (2016)

I’m a huge supporter of the found footage subgenre. I’m aware it gets a lot of flack as it is often accused as a cheap tactic to release products for the mere purpose of profitability at the cost of angry attendees. However, there have been many examples that the format could be produce some seriously scary movies, like Paranormal Activity and the little seen Taking Of Deborah Logan. Several years ago, The Blair Witch Project proved that the less is more approach could be a terrifying experience and forever will be a movie others will be compared to whether you love it or not. While definitely not the first found footage movie, it helped set a mainstream precedent as to what audiences expect or maybe possibly wished they could see. Now it’s 2016, horror has become the mainstream and people want to be scared. Blair Witch acknowledges the advances in technology,

Denise Richards: examining her recent straight-to-dvd movies

Kirsten Howard Jul 19, 2016

From Blonde And Blonder and You Stupid Man, through to Edmond: we go through the recent straight-to-dvd films of Denise Richards...

So far in this series of pieces that look at the straight-to-dvd or VOD movies of some of our favourite actors who have fallen on hard times, we’ve only looked at men (to date: Bruce Willis, Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and John Travolta). That’s because, mostly, actresses find themselves almost completely out of the game once they hit 30ish – an unnecessary full stop that a lot of us would like to see removed in the future.

Denise Richards, sadly, is no different. After marrying a man she found herself in an abusive relationship with, her career climb stumbled and she was forced back down into TV roles, where she’s currently still putting in the hours.

Richards had a sparkling, American Dream-like start in life.

New Nerve Trailer Teases A Daring Movie

We’ve had a lengthy run of Young Adult fiction adaptations, and almost all of them have fallen into one of two categories: ‘young adult bucks the system, finds themselves, and saves the world’ (The Hunger Games, The Maze Runner, Divergent, The Fifth Wave), or ‘young adult finds tragic love’ (If I Stay, The Fault In Our Stars, The Spectacular Now, any movie based on a Nicholas Sparks novel). But, this year brings us Nerve, which is potentially something quite different from the usual Young Adult adaptations that flow relentlessly into movie theatres.

Based on the 2012 novel of the same name by Jeanne Ryan, this film takes a large swipe at the current culture of reality shows, YouTube stars and gaming. Nerve is the name of a fictional online game that allows anonymous viewers to manipulate the actions of players for their own entertainment. High school senior Vee (Emma Roberts

Margot Robbie Spoofs American Psycho

  • TheMovieBit
Not content with stepping into the shoes of one of pop culture’s greatest psychopaths with her upcoming turn as Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad, Margot Robbie took some time out to shoot a pitch perfect parody of American Psycho, pimping her upcoming cover for Vogue magazine. Shot by Ariel Schulman and Henry Joost (Catfish, Paranormal Activity 4), it’s almost a shot for shot re-imagining of Patrick Bateman’s morning routine, with some really funny touches thrown in, such as Hamilton replacing Les Miserables and a fake script for a movie called Harley Quinn v Harley Davidson. Check it out below.

Dave Franco And Emma Roberts Play To Win In Pulsing First Trailer For Nerve

Are you a Watcher or Player? That’s the question poised by today’s debut trailer for Nerve, the darkly stylish adaptation of Jeanne Ryan’s original novel.

Boasting a plot that reads as though David Fincher’s The Game had been retooled for the Snapchat generation, Emma Roberts and Dave Franco become prey to a series of truth-or-dare challenges, becoming little more than entertainment for viewers at home.

Themes of surveillance and George Orwell’s Big Brother are somewhat lost amid the garish style and frenetic editing, but we remain cautiously optimistic that Liongate’s viral-friendly thriller can carve out an audience. Guiding Ryan’s novel from page to screen are co-directors Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman, best known for their work on Paranormal Activity 4 and, more appropriately, Catfish.

Here’s a synopsis pulled from the author’s source material:

Fright At Home Reviews: Sonny Boy, The Last Witch Hunter, Burroughs: The Movie and More!!

This week sees two Fright At Home articles because, to be honest, we’ve seen quite a few films lately, ones that have stayed in our heads. This one also sees a documentary about one of the greatest writers of all time, William S. Burroughs. We’ve got quite a few films to cover in this one, and we’re excited to tell you Fright Fanatics all about them. Read on!

Sonny Boy (Dir. Robert Martin Carroll)

One of the craziest films I’ve ever seen, Robert martin Carroll’s Sonny Boy is like a coked-up look at family and insanity. Revolving around a very unconventional family full of colorful characters, the film follows “Sonny Boy”, a kind-napped baby who over the years, grows up and is stored in a cage. Beaten and having his tongue cut out by the demented Slue (Midnight Express) , Sonny Boy years for an escape

'Scouts Guide' Clip Uses Britney Spears to Subdue a Zombie
Can you kill a zombie with Britney Spears music? The Walking Dead would have us believe that zombies are unthinking murder machines that can't be stopped by anything except a sharp blade or bullet to the head. So it's always fun to see a twist to that conceit. We'll be getting a slightly different take on the overcrowded Living Dead genre in this weekend's Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse. And the latest clip from the movie teases that this will be a blood-soaked blast.

Ben, Carter and Augie are three way-ward American Scouts who have found themselves teamed up with Denise, a kick-ass strip club waiter who knows her way around shooting an animated corpse in the head. Attempting to save themselves from an onslaught of the living dead, they encounter a creeping ghoul who wants to eat their flesh.

Review: Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension

A fair warning to readers: While I will not ruin anything by spoiling the surprises of The Ghost Dimension, in order to properly write about it, the events of the previous five movies will be discussed, so if you haven’t seen the others, I recommend you stop here as this is a full on piece on the Paranormal experience.

When the first Paranormal Activity came out in 2009, it had probably one of the best marketing strategies out there. With its vague title and poster art, the film requested audiences demand the film be screened in their area in order for them to watch it. No plot details were divulged, but it promised a terrifying experience in time for Halloween. I had to drive an hour away to the only theater showing it in the Chicago suburbs at the time and was glad I had preordered my tickets. There was
