Evil Dead Rise

Just like Demons 2, Poltergeist III, and Gremlins 2: The New Batch before it, a new report from Bloody-Disgusting contributor Jimmy Champane alleges Evil Dead Rise will be set in either a high-rise apartment or skyscraper.

Willy’s Wonderland

According to Deadline, the movie in which Nicolas Cage battles killer animatronic characters at an amusement park has changed its title from Wally’s Wonderland to Willy’s Wonderland.

Horrorscope

Screen Gems has hired screenwriters Anna Halberg and Spenser Cohen to adapt the Nicholas Adams’ novel Horrorscope for the screen. The story concerns the guests at a horoscope party “dying in ways connected to their zodiac signs. Four friends must work together to solve the mystery before their numbers are up.”

The Suicide Squad

According to Jai Courtney, James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad has “a different flavour” than David Ayer’s Suicide Squad.

I think it’s kind of got a different flavour. There’s a whole bunch of new characters. James Gunn has an approach to things that is uniquely his; he pulls a lot of that into the Suicide Squad world. And I think that it fits really well, and audiences are going to have a lot of fun with it.

The Beach House

A mysterious disease afflicting man and man o’ war alike spells doom for a vacationing family in the trailer for The Beach House, premiering July 9 on Shudder.

Lucifer

TV Line reports Rob Benedict (God on Supernatural) has joined the fifth season of Lucifer as Vincent Le Mec, “a hardened French Mercenary whose violent work brings him to Los Angeles — and into the crosshairs of Lucifer, Chloe and the LAPD.”

Vagrant Queen

Sad news: Syfy has cancelled Vagrant Queen after just one season.

The Flash

Showrunner Eric Wallace promises “a huge twist” at the beginning of The Flash’s seventh season, after shutdowns on filming predicated changes to the end of season six.

Because this is The Flash, there’s a huge twist at the end of every season, and that twist is now kind of coming in the middle of the [start of the] season. And that has really affected our storytelling for all of Season 7.
