James Wan to Produce Body Horror The Troop

Rosie Fletcher Aug 13, 2019

The Troop will be directed by E.L. Katz who made excellent indie Cheap Thrills.

Horror is having a heyday right now, with small budget chillers frequently cleaning up at the box office. Variety reports that the latest property to be developed by James Wan's production company Atomic Monster is The Troop, based on the novel by Nick Cutter – and we couldn't be more excited.

The novel was first published in February 2014 and tells the story of a group of boy scouts and their scout leader who take a camping trip to a remote island where they encounter a stranger with a horrible infection.

It's an icky, gross, body horror that also manages to be a moving character study and a Lord Of The Flies-esque psychological thriller – the book is brilliant and won the James Herbert Award For Horror Writing when it came out.

James Wan Producing Adaptation of Horror Novel The Troop by Nick Cutter

James Wan Producing Adaptation of Horror Novel The Troop by Nick Cutter
James Wan's Atomic Monster is producing a big screen adaptation of Nick Cutter's Ya horror novel The Troop. Cutter is a horror pen name by Craig Davidson, who also writes under the name Patrick Lestewka for the genre. The Troop has been celebrated by horror fans ever since it was released in 2014 and a movie was inevitable. E.L. Katz has been set to direct the project with Noah Gardner and Aidan Fitzgerald adapting Cutter's book for the big screen.

The Troop centers on a Boy Scout troop in the Canadian wilderness for a weekend camping trip, which is a tradition. However, things get crazy really quick when an unexpected intruder stumbles upon their campsite. He is described as "shockingly thin, disturbingly pale, and voraciously hungry." The boys are then exposed to something far more frightening than any tale of terror: the human carrier of a bioengineered nightmare. The

Jason Momoa Says That He Can't Shoot Aquaman 2 Because He Is 'Trying to Stop the Desecration of His Native Land'

Aquaman star Jason Momoa has been in the spotlight quite a bit lately, but not so much for a movie role or his good looks this time. Momoa, a native Hawaiian, as well as Samoan actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, have been present at the protests taking place on site of the tallest mountain in Hawaii, Mauna Kea, where construction is taking place in efforts to build a telescope site on indigenous land.

The Thirty Meter Telescope, referred to by Momoa as the Tmt, is being built on a dormant volcano, and the indigenous people of Hawaii consider the mountain to be sacred land. While the protests have stayed peaceful, those in attendance have blocked access to the roads, gumming up the process, and many have been arrested.

You can check out Momoa’s Instagram feed for updates, as they’re many. But one post in particular had fans talking this past week.

Jason Momoa Says He Can’t Shoot ‘Aquaman 2’ Because He ‘Got Run Over by a Bulldozer’

Jason Momoa Says He Can’t Shoot ‘Aquaman 2’ Because He ‘Got Run Over by a Bulldozer’
Jason Momoa says he can’t start shooting “Aquaman 2”… because he “got run over by a bulldozer” while protesting construction of a giant telescope on land considered sacred to native Hawaiians.

“Sorry Warner Bros we can’t shoot ‘Aquaman 2,'” he wrote in an Instagram post. “Because Jason got run over by a bulldozer trying to stop the desecration of his native land This iS Not Happening. We Are Not Letting You Do This Anymore. Enough is enough. Go somewhere else.”

In a followup post, Momoa asked fans to support the protest movement, writing, “During this time, we are trying to unite both kānaka and Hawai’i born peoples alike to protect not only the mauna, but also our way of life and greatest natural resources in Hawaii as a whole.”

Aquaman Star Jason Momoa Fires Back At Body-Shamers Again

Last month, photos of Jason Momoa relaxing on the beach with his family revealed that the Aquaman star hadn’t maintained the muscular physique displayed in the recent DC blockbuster. And while you wouldn’t think that would be anyone’s business but his own, the actor has subsequently found himself to be the unlikely target of a wave of online body-shaming.

Naturally, the fans have since come to Momoa’s defense, and in a new video shared from Hawaii, the star offers his own response to the controversy while spreading a message of greater importance than the appearance of his so-called “dad bod.” In the short clip below, Momoa stands shirtless with the slogan, “Tmt + Canary Islands = Discovery,” written across his chest. Speaking to the camera, he offers the following message:

“How’s that for a dad body? Tmt, the Canary Islands want you. We don’t want you.

James Wan's New Horror Movie Is an Old School Hard-r Original with Practical Effects

James Wan's New Horror Movie Is an Old School Hard-r Original with Practical Effects
It was just last week that we learned that The Conjuring and Insidious director James Wan has a sceret horror movie on the way. And he will be directing the mysterious movie before he takes the helm of the planned sequel to his mega-blockbuster Aquaman. But other than that, not much is known about what Wan's next horror movie is really about or what it will be.

That said, today we've learned that James Wan teased a bit about the project over on Facebook in a post that seems to have been removed since. In the post, he wrote this.

"There's been a bit of speculation as to what my next project is... all I'll say is, I'm super excited to go back to my indie roots with this hard-r thriller. An original horror idea (not a reboot/remake or anything based on existing IP) with old school, practical effects and no giant,

Movie Review – The Tracker (2019)

The Tracker, 2019

Directed by Giorgio Serafini.

Starring Dolph Lundgren, Cosimo Fusco, Anna Falchi, Marco Mazzoli and Marta Gastini.

Synopsis:

A mysterious stranger travels to a remote village where, 15 years earlier, his wife and daughter were kidnapped.

With Dolph Lundgren riding on a high following the double whammy of Aquaman and Creed 2 last year, and the promise of sequel returns as King Nereus (Aquaman) and the impending Expendables 4, times are good for the big Swede. Throw in an appearance in Season 14 of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia and the reported TV collaboration with Sly Stallone and he’s got TV well covered too.

Here’s the thing…Dolph has made a lot of dross of late. Even in comparison to the video era films of the 90’s and early 00’s that many would have considered woeful at the time, his films, like many treading Dtv (direct to video) land these days,

‘Aquaman’ Director James Wan Returning to Horror Roots for Next Film

Before diving back into the underwater world of Atlantis for Warner Bros. and DC’s “Aquaman 2,” slated to begin pre-production next year, director James Wan will first circle back to the horror genre for his next film. Fans of his deep catalogue of nightmare fuel, from “Saw” to “Insidious” and “The Conjuring,” will have to wait for details, as plot specifics remain under wraps, according to Variety.

Wan conceived of the story idea with his fiancée Ingrid Bisu, star of “The Nun” (which Wan executive-produced) and “Toni Erdmann.” The yet-to-be-titled project hasn’t set up a screenwriter at this time. Wan is not a writer by trade, but has story credits on most of his films.

The news adds to a busy slate for the prolific Hollywood figure, whose commercial track record continues to grow more robust. Wan recently produced such fearsome box-office hits as “The Curse of La Llorona” and “Annabelle Comes Home.

James Wan Will Direct A New Horror Film Before Aquaman 2

For a very long time, Aquaman looked like it might be a box office bomb of epic proportions. With Warner Bros.’ Dceu still reeling from the abject disaster of Justice League, we went months and months without a trailer and there was vicious Hollywood gossip about behind-the-scenes drama.

And, on top of all that, this was an Aquaman film. For the last two decades the character has been a figure of fun and the butt of ‘talks to fish’ jokes. But then, it finally saw release and, well, it was great!

James Wan’s carefully designed undersea world looked stunning, Jason Momoa was a charisma machine and supporting actors Nicole Kidman and Willem Dafoe lent the pic some real gravitas. Plus, you really can’t argue with an octopus drummer.

James Wan Returns to Horror Before Aquaman 2

David Crow Jul 31, 2019

James Wan’s next film, before helming Aquaman 2, will be a mysterious new horror movie at New Line.

James Wan is at an interesting place in his career. While he proved his action movie bonafides several years ago with the stressful production of Furious 7, it was last year that he managed to successfully launch a new superhero franchise with a wild premise and little in the way of a popular shared universe to fall back on. Nevertheless, Aquaman was gonzo, bubblegum fun that grossed about $1.2 billion at the box office. So, in theory, he could do anything he’d want next. Which makes news that he’s returning to horror so intriguing.

The revelation came out of a rather cryptic announcement than Wan is locked in to direct a currently untitled horror movie set up at Warner’s New Line Cinema before he begins production on Aquaman 2.
