    Bruce McDonald Attached To Direct The Supernatural Thriller ‘Dark Highway’ > The Playlist

    Variety is reporting that Palomar Pictures and Foundation Features are recruiting the “Hard Core Logo” director to take on their large scale supernatural thriller “Dark Highway.” The picture follows a man on the run from a pursuer, who’s trying to reach a certain location while he struggles to find out if his current situation is real or imaginary. If that doesn’t make much sense, check out the article, it doesn’t read much better.

    Dark Highway” is currently casting, with production set to begin early next year.

    I don't know if you were talking to me, but I've seen Pontypool and enjoyed it quite a bit. Nowhere near enough to make it Top 5, but it was a damn fine film.

    Name me 5 better. Great performances in a single set flick...hardly anything that was not suggested solely by language. Tremendously effective while being as spartan as humanly possible. Less is soooooooo much more. This is horror at its finest. Orpheus, who loves Val Lewton flicks(which were the high water mark of suggestion over what-you-see) would love this flick. That just backs up my argument.

    5 better horror flicks? Of all time?

    Halloween, The Thing, Audition, Black Christmas, Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Just off the top of my head.

    Nicolas Cage Makes Another Dent In Tax Bill, Signs To Headline Thriller ‘Black Butterfly’ > The Playlist

    Screen Daily reveals that Cage will star in “Black Butterfly,” a thriller that marks the first project from German conglomerate Bavariapool International Coproductions. The film is a remake of a French TV thriller named “Papillon Noir,” which starred former footballer Eric Cantona, and will involve Cage playing a writer who offers shelter to a drifter “with unforeseen consequences.” Really? Because we bet we can foresee a thing or two about what’s going to happen…

    Veronica Ferres (”Schtonk!,” “Adam Resurrected”) co-stars, and the film is directed by Brian Goodman, who previously made “What Doesn’t Kill You” in 2008, with Ethan Hawke and Mark Ruffalo. In other news, Ethan Hawke and Mark Ruffalo apparently made a movie called “What Doesn’t Kill You” in 2008. Shooting on the $13 million film will start in Germany early next year, so look for it going straight to DVD to arrive in theaters along with the other three dozen movies Cage has planned between now and the end of 2013.

    James Mangold To Direct Remake Of Icelandic Thriller ‘City State’

    With “The Wolverine” now on hold until spring/summer 2012 so Hugh Jackman can hoof it in “Les Miserables,” it appears that director James Mangold will try and get something in before his life gets taken over by the comic book franchise. Deadline reports that Mangold has signed on to take on “City State” a remake of Olaf de Fleur Johannesson‘s film that’s not even out yet in his native land. No word yet if Mangold will take on writing duties as well, but the movie itself finds four overlapping story lines converging in a tale about the foreign mafia taking over the Icelandic drug trade. We presume the story will be relocated for Mangold’s film, but it sounds like pretty pedestrian fare no matter how you slice it. Here’s the IMDB plot summary:

    When a foreign mafia decides to take control of the Icelandic drug market, a police woman lost in violence, a mechanic revenging for his lost son, a crime kingpin with a heart condition, a corrupt officer in love with a prostitute will destroy each other.

    Apparently, this one is moving fast and being set up quickly, so perhaps this will be a return to Mangold’s early days of low budget, no nonsense filmmaking like “Heavy” and “Cop Land.” But we do hope there is a bit more depth to this story




    EDIT: Totally meant to put this in the remakes thread. Oh well. **** it.

    Sales Poster For ‘Concrete Island,’ Christian Bale’s Reunion With ‘Machinist’ Director Brad Anderson > The Playlist



    Los Angeles, 2020. Robert Maitland is a highly successful architect. One day, he speeds down the freeway losing control of his car and crashing into the middle of a manmade ‘island’ underneath a freeway intersection. After days of suffering agonising physical pain and the mental turmoil, he begins to suspect that he may not be the only person on the ‘island’. When his fellow inhabitants finally reveal themselves, it soon becomes clear to Maitland that on this ‘concrete island’, only the strong survive.

    Review: ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’ A Stunner With A Breakout Turn By Elizabeth Olsen > The Playlist

    “Martha Marcy May Marlene” is superbly acted and assembled, but it is also entirely terrifying, and deeply disquieting, building a mood of paranoia with both intense, brutal transgressions and small, creepy touches of tone. The commune’s telephone—with instructions and procedures for dealing with callers scrawled on the wall around it—is a moment of set design that chills with unexplained implications. A series of home burglaries play out with brazen calm that turns far more intense. And Martha, ostensibly safe with her sister, can’t tell if the cult is still in her life or just still in her head—and neither can we, and we find it equally hard to determine which would be worse. Superbly crafted, stunningly well-acted and more than willing to let our imagination fill out the spaces in its gorgeous shadowed darkness, “Martha Marcy May Marlene” is a film of haunting beauty that marks Durkin’s arrival as a subtle and strong director to watch. [A+]
    Saw the trailer for this before The Woman and thought it looked like it had massive potential.
