Anna Kendrick will play an astronaut headed to Mars in a new sci-fi film from Arctic filmmakers Joe Penna and Ryan Morrison.
As THR describes it, the story centres on “the crew of a spaceship headed to Mars that discovers an accidental stowaway shortly after takeoff. Too far from Earth to turn back and with resources quickly dwindling, the ship’s medical researcher (Kendrick) emerges as the only dissenting voice against the group consensus that has already decided in favour of a grim outcome.”
Deadline reports Kate Hudson, Craig Robinson and Zac Efron have joined the cast of Ana Lily Amirpour’s third feature, Blood Moon. The story surrounds “a girl with strange and dangerous abilities who escapes from a mental asylum in New Orleans”.
A profile from the CBC on women in horror includes clips and behind-the-scenes footage from the Soska Sister’s remake of David Croenenberg’s Rabid. Head over there to take a look.
Speaking with /Film, screenwriter Paul Wernick described the sequel to Zombieland as “the perfect 10-year anniversary present”.
We’re shooting that in January and can’t wipe the smile off our faces. It’s the thing that Rhett and I as a team got our start on. It made us the screenwriters that we’ve become. That cast and the gang that’s back together with Ruben and our producer Gavin [Polone], the studio, we’re super, super excited about it. It’s pretty special and will come out basically 10 years from the first so it’s the perfect 10-year anniversary present I think.
