Nathan Fillion Is Nathan Drake In ‘Uncharted’ Short Film!


Perhaps drawing inspiration from Ryan Reynolds’ leaked Deadpool footage, Nathan Fillion stars as wise-cracking treasure hunter Nathan Drake in a 15-minute short film by director Allan Ungar (Gridlocked) based on the Naughty Dog video game, Uncharted.

A film adaptation of the game has been struggling to see light of day for years, during which fans of its hero, Nathan Drake, have hoped against hope Fillion, who bears an uncanny resemblance to the character in looks and manner, would score the role.

Unfortunately, Sony is currently envisioning a younger Drake, tapping Tom Holland (Spiderman: Homecoming) for the part some time ago. But, that’s not stopping Fillion and Ungar from finally making fans happy — and proving to Hollywood how the “Firefly” star truly owns it.

The Uncharted short film itself is a blast and co-stars Stephen Lang (Don’t Breathe) as Drake’s sidekick Sully and Mircea Monroe (Fifty Shades of Black) as his lady and photojournalist Elena. Drake’s smart-ass quips are gold and the action resembles the game in tone and actual shots! If not the big screen, here’s hoping it makes it to the small.

Everyone In ‘Unfriended: Dark Web’ Should Bite It Hard!


Blumhouse Tilt has released a new trailer for Unfriended: Dark Web, a sequel to its underrated 2014 cyber-thriller Unfriended — a supernatural tale about a vengeful suicide spirit told from the computer screen of one of its intended victims.

Unfriended: Dark Web is shot in similar manner, but this time out follows a college dude who finds hidden human trafficking files on his new laptop and soon discovers someone is watching his every move through his webcam. It’s slated for release July 20.

Hailed as Blumhouse’s most evil film, Dark Web sounds pretty cool, but, damn, those kids are annoying. You just know they’re unaware, entitled and privileged self-obsessed snowflakes. Give me the sex-hungry kids of old-school slashers any day. Screw these brats in the neck. May they die horribly.

Emma Stone Nuts Up for ‘Zombieland’ Sequel!


Oscar-winning actress Emma Stone (La La Land) is set to reprise her role as hot viral outbreak survivor Wichita in Sony Pictures eagerly anticipated Zombieland sequel, shooting in January and slated for release on the original’s 10th anniversary, October 2019.

The horror-comedy reunites Stone with co-stars Woody Harrelson (Tallahassee), Jesse Eisenberg (Columbus), Abigail Breslin (Little Rock) and director Ruben Fleischer and writers Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese — currently known for their work on the Deadpool movies.

According to THR, the Zombieland sequel takes our heroes on a journey from the White House to the American heartland, meeting new survivors along the way while battling new and stronger breeds of the undead.


Cate Shortland to Direct Scarlett Johansson In Standalone ‘Black Widow’


Aussie director Cate Shortland will helm Marvel Studio’s eagerly awaited Black Widow, a standalone film set before the events of Joss Whedon’s The Avengers. Scarlett Johansson is once again on board as the sexy, redheaded spy-turned-superhero.

Shortland doesn’t have much to her filmmaker credits, but she did win genre fans over with the suspenseful abduction thriller Berlin Syndrome, starring Teresa Palmer as an Australian photographer taken hostage while on holiday in Germany by the seemingly affable high school teacher she meets while sightseeing (it ranked in our list of 10 Sexiest Horror Films of 2017)

Black Widow was introduced in 2010’s Iron Man 2. No word on plot details for Shortland’s standalone film, but it is written by Jac Schaeffer, the scribe behind Olaf’s Frozen Adventure short… so you know it’s going to be good :P


Neill Blomkamp Directing ‘Robocop Returns’… We’ll Buy That for a Dollar!


District 9 and Elysium director Neill Blomkamp is set to take the helm on MGM’s newest Robocop reboot, Robocop Returns. The film is described as a true sequel to Paul Verhoeven’s 1987 sci-fi classic about a veteran police officer murdered by criminals and brought back to life as a cyborg crime fighter by the OmniCorp corporation.

Blomkamp tells Deadline:

As long as the human component is there, a good story can work in any time period, it’s not locked into a specific place in history. What’s so cool about RoboCop is that like good Westerns, sci-fi films and dramas, the human connection is really important to a story well told. What draws me now is someone searching for their lost identity, taken away at the hands of people who are benefiting from it, and seeing his memory jogged by events. That is most captivating.

Justin Rhodes, screenwriter on the upcoming Terminator and Masters of the Universe reboots, has been tapped to rewrite a script by original Robocop writers Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner — now serving as producer and executive producer, respectively.

Robocop was recently rebooted in 2013 by MGM and Sony Pictures with Jose Padilha directing what would be a slick, but ultimately bland entry — notable only in its foolish decision to skip out on the brutally memorable attack that would lead to Alex Murphy’s Robocop transformation (at least he didn’t fly though).


Jacqueline Wright Meets Rapey, Violent Man of Her Dreams In ‘Eat Me’


There’s nothing Clatto enjoys more than a romance tale, especially one between unlikely couples going against the odds to come together. It’s why we’re excited for Eat Me, a controversial home invasion thriller about an emotionally wrecked woman who on the night of her suicide attempt meets the rapey and violent intruder of her dreams.

Critics are having a difficult time with the sexual abuse and violence (rape, sodomy, golden showers, puppy-play — no anal tho :( ), but remain generous in their review of screenwriter and lead Jacqueline Wright, who adapted the screenplay from her own stage play.

We just hope these crazy kids make it!

The Hollywood Reporter calls Eat Me a “repugnant showcase” and would not describe the scenes it found offensive, noting in their review:

Bob decides to take advantage of Tommy’s vulnerable state. He proceeds to sexually assault her and perform a series of other humiliating and violent atrocities as she remains nearly comatose (For the sake of the reader’s delicate sensibilities, the specific acts won’t be described here, but only those with very strong stomachs should dare seeing the film.)

Our stomachs routinely survive the menu at Taco Bell so we’re sure Eat Me will sit just fine with us. Eat Me is now playing in selected theaters and streaming platforms.

Screw Your Friendly Predators, Shane Black! Give Us Nude Olivia Munn!


Twentieth Century Fox will release on Sept. 14 The Predator, a reboot of the popular franchise first introduced in 1987 as an Arnold Schwarzenegger sci-fi actioner. Shane Black (Iron Man 3) directs from a script he co-wrote with Monster Squad writer/director Fred Dekker.

This time out, the Predators are inadvertently brought to earth by an autistic kid’s goof and must be stopped by a group of ex-military soldiers and a hot science teacher, played by Olivia Munn. Friendly Predators help too — one even Rain Mans it with the autistic trouble-making brat.

Fortunately, test audiences recognized the film as ridiculous and gave it thumbs down. According to AVP Galaxy, reshoots have now eliminated the friendly Predators and most of the film’s third act, while adding stuff that connects it to previous Predator films. Sadly, no word on the addition of a Munn full-frontal shower scene :(


The Force Is Strong w/ This One: Keri Russell Joins ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’


Keri Russell (”The Americans”) is set to join the cast of Star Wars: Episode IX. No details on how her role fits into the Star Wars mythology, but it does reunite Russell with her “Felicity” and Mission Impossible 3 director J.J. Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) — back to helm the final entry in the new trilogy.

Russell joins returning players Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), and Adam Driver (Kylo Ren). In addition to directing, Abrams pens the script with Chris Terrio (Argo). Star Wars: Episode IX is slated for release Dec. 20, 2019.

Russell, best known for her breakthrough series “Felicity” and her most recent FX show “The Americans,” has starred in a small handful of genre films, including the blockbuster Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the lesser known, but awesome, Blumhouse alien thriller Dark Skies.


Gillian Anderson Does the Math In ‘UFO’


Gillian Anderson is back hunting little green men in Sony Pictures’ upcoming alien thriller UFO. The beloved “X-Files” and “Hannibal” stunner plays an advanced mathematics professor with bad hair aiding a nerdy college student on his quest to prove aliens are scoping out airports across the United States.

With the exception of Anderson’s hairdo, there’s not much that’s frightening in the film’s trailer. But, regardless, how do you not watch a UFO movie co-starring Dana Scully? Do so on DVD and VOD Sept. 4.

‘Next Top Model’ Analeigh Tipton Is a ‘Broken Star’


“America’s Next Top Model” contestant-turned-actress Analeigh Tipton stars alongside Tyler Labine (”Tucker & Dale vs. Evil) in Gravitas Ventures new psychological thriller Broken Star, set for limited theatrical and VOD release July 20.

Analeigh (pronounced anal-lay cause we’re 12) plays a troubled and desperate actress who uses her hotness to convince her scruffy landlord to help her achieve her Hollywood goals while under house arrest and discovers there may more to him than she thought.
