Jackie Earle Haley Signed on for THREE ‘Elm Street’ Films!

While Platinum Dunes is winding down on their reboot of A Nightmare on Elm Street, we caught up with your brand new Freddy Krueger, Jackie Earle Haley, who tells Bloody-Disgusting exclusively that he's signed on to return for more razor-glove teen terrorizing. "Two more," prompting us to confirm, "So, three total?" Haley smiles, displaying three fingers, "yeah." We also broke the news that Rooney Mara (Nancy Thompson) is signed on for one more trip to Elm Street. Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema will release the remake in theaters April 16, 2010. The films' premise centers on Krueger, a serial child molester murdered by angry parents, who returns with a burnt face and a razor glove to terrorize teens in their dreams.

Official Trailer for Dark Sky’s ‘Deadgirl’ Leaks to B-D!

You better hurry and read on as we just scored a look at the official trailer for Deadgirl (review), which is guaranteed to get pulled tomorrow when news hits the studio. Arriving in limited theaters July 24 from Dark Sky FIlms, Marcel Sarmiento and Gadi Harel's film scripted by genre fav Trent Haaga is a horror/thriller about two teenagers who make a shocking discovery that not only threatens their friendship but also their lives.

Trailer: Infection Spreads in ‘Carriers’

September 4th, Paramount finally releases Àlex Pastor and David Pastor's Carriers, which stars Lou Taylor Pucci, Chris Pine, Piper Perabo and Emily VanCamp as four friends fleeing a viral pandemic soon learn they are more dangerous than any virus. While we brought you 33 hi-res stills and the poster, now beyond the break you'll find the theatrical trailer for the film that's being released in leu of Chris Pine's success as Captain Kirk in Star Trek. The long wait makes me think there's nothing to look forward to, what does the trailer do for you?

Deal Breaker?

So Kirk Acevedo is off "Fringe" and Meghan Markle joins the cast -- used to be one of the "Deal or No Deal" show-models -- as a junior FBI agent. Charlie was the skeptic. He didn't buy into the crazy theories, just did his job. Kinda like Skinner on "X-Files". Might screw up the dynamic. I also read that a slew of new writers are being brought in. Just when the show had started to find its legs....

"Mutant Chronicles" is exactly what you'd expect from a sci-fi zombie movie. Decent cast -- I didn't get the Pras from the Fugees cameo. Apparently, John Malkovich will agree to *any* script thrown in his direction.... maybe I should get his contact info! Simple, silly story. Struggles when it tries to go beyond the limited budget. Murky shadows and digital blood splatter can only go so far. I think plans for a theatrical release fell through.

Stuck in the mud with the new script -- okay, stuck is the wrong word. I have options, I just don't like any of 'em. Think I'll work on something else until inspiration strikes. I have an idea for a low budget thriller that I'd like to get off the ground anyway. By hook or by crook, I'm gonna start and finish two scripts this year.

Help Pick the ‘Night of the Creeps’ DVD Cover

Amazon is offering a unique opportunity to help decide the cover for the forthcoming DVD release of Night of the Creeps arriving in stores on October 20 (finally). I still think BC said it best when he wrote, "I vote for the 4th cover. It's the one in my head that prominently features Tom Atkins." Alien brain parasites, entering humans through the mouth, turn their host into a killing zombie. Some teenagers start to fight against them.

March is Now the ‘Season of the Witch’

Lionsgate has announced a March 19, 2010 release for Dominic Sena's hotly anticipated Season of the Witch that will hopefully put Nicolas Cage back in a good movie. He stars alongside Ron Perlman, Stephen Campbell Moore, Claire Foy, Robbie Sheehan and Stephen Grahan in the story that revolves around a group of knights in 14th century France who must transport a woman accused of witchcraft to a mountain abbey, where the monks will seek to understand and destroy her powers, believed to be the source of the Black Plague. In other quick news, Dimension Films has completely pulled Hellraiser off their slate and has taken the project back to square one. Sorry Pinhead.

‘I Sell the Dead’ Director Inspired by Abbott & Costello

Writer/director Glenn McQuaid says he plans to follow his festival hit I Sell The Dead (trailer) with another project exploring the same graverobbing characters, writes Screen Daily. The Further Adventures of Blake and Grimes is not so much a sequel [to I Sell The Dead] but a continuation of this world, McQuaid tells Screen. He hopes to make that story a comic book first, and potentially turn that into another feature film eventually. You can read the entire story by clicking the link above and watch for I Sell the Dead on August 7 from IFC Films.

The Beautiful Robot ‘RoboGeisha’

God bless the Japanese and their insane b-movies. Today Twitch Film posted the trailer for RoboGeisha, which comes from Machine Girl director Noboru Iguch. RoboGeisha is the latest collaboration between Iguchi and special effects man Yoshihiro Nishimura - himself the director of Tokyo Gore Police - and it bears all of the now-classic hallmarks of the duo: outrageous special effects, grotesquely hilarious gore and weapons where weapons just should not go.
