A liitle less than a month after Hulu and Marvel Studios' reaffirmed their commitment to Marvel's Helstrom with a major casting announcement of names that carry some serious "geek cred" with them (see below), we have yet another name to add to the cast. Daniel Cudmore (X-Men and Twilight franchises, Freeform's Siren) has been cast […]
While we're still waiting on OFFICIAL confirmation that actor Robert Pattinson has indeed signed on the dotted line to play the caped crusader in Matt Reeves upcoming The Batman for Warner Bros.

If there's one thing we can't stand, it's all the damn sparkling vampires. We're struggling to not see this choice of director for The CW's Lost Boys series as….troubling. Catherine Hardwicke, director of Twilight and Red Riding Hood, is reportedly helming the pilot episode. Obviously, this is The CW, so the target demographic maybe isn't what we were hoping […]

Like a snake eating its own tail, BOOM! Studios is borrowing from Twilight in promoting its Buffy the Vampire Slayer relaunch, just as Twilight borrowed from the original Buffy series in the circular world of self-referential vampire fiction. Taking a cue from the #TeamEdward and #TeamJacob debates of the early 2010s, BOOM! has unleashed two […]
To paraphrase the famous line, Melissa Rosenberg is set to leap big studios in a single bound with the Marvel's Jessica Jones creator/showrunner leaving both Netflix and the Marvel drama for a multi-year deal with Warner Bros. TV that could ultimately end up being in the eight-figure range. After two seasons with Jessica Jones, sources say […]
Stephenie Meyer is returning to television — and we're not talking about MTV's 8646th Twilight marathon, either. Tomorrow Studios is set to develop Meyer's conspiracy thriller The Chemist as a television series. Meyer and Meghan Hibett are set to produce through their Fickle Fish Films banner, alongside Tomorrow Studios' Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements. "Stephenie is one […]
Yesterday, a story told by Twilight star Robert Pattinson about being asked to masturbate a dog on the set of the film Good Time went viral. Today, Pattinson is doing his best to walk back his comments and put a leash on the story, saying that the request was a joke and no live dog […]
Good news for fans of the vampire romance epic Twilight series; its creator, Stephanie Meyer, is bringing a new supernatural thriller to television. Unlike Twilight, Meyer didn't write the book that The Rook is based on. That job belonged to author Daniel O'Malley. But Meyer will serve as Executive Producer, alongside Stephen Garrett (The Night Manager), […]
Anthony Mackie already has one role in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but that apparently isn't good enough for him. In addition to playing The Falcon, Mackie also wants to take Wesley Snipes' job. That's right. Anthony Mackie really wants to play Blade. Mackie was at a Wizard World convention in Cleveland when he was asked […]
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Lionsgate vice chairman Michael Burns said that The Hunger Games will "live on and on and on."

Melanie Griffiths and Don Johnson's daughter is going to the red room of pain.
In Max Brooks new zombie/vampire comic Extinction Parade, published today, he gives us a very quick history of vampires. Starting with the classic Bram Stoker-as-seen-by-Hollywood version, a quick flurry with the Interview With A Vampire type and then… TWilight. He promises that the vampires in Extinction Parade don't glow.
The films that people want to be identified with disliking this year.
He doesn't seem to be much of a fan at all.
I've run this theory before. But the evidence keeps mounting up. That, step by step, DC Comics is laying the groundwork to run Twilight Of The Superheroes, the Alan Moore pitch that they bought, lock, stock and two smoking Benson And Hedges, before Moore fell out with the company and withdrew his labour. But DC […]
This thing is so action packed, it flies right in the face of everything we typically hear about the series. Reminds me of that time somebody cut a romcom trailer out of The Shining. Still, I'll be interested to see Bill Condon direct some big actions scenes… if indeed he has.
