Leonardo DiCaprio May Play Jonestown Massacre Cult-Leader Jim Jones

Published

Jonestown

One of the most horrific events to occur under the guidance of a cult was the tragic event that befell the residents of Jonestown. The Jonestown cult was lead by the charming and egotistical Jim Jones. Jones assembled the cult found them “heaven on earth” and then eventually lead them to their death by mass suicide. Now, Leonardo DiCaprio is in talks to play Jones in an upcoming film from MGM.

The Scott Rosenberg-written screenplay will follow the path of Jones from the establishment of his church to the eventual mass-suicide of his followers.

The well-publicized event was the news of the world after it occurred on Nov. 18, 1978.

There have been many documentaries that have covered the events that lead up to the suicide. Many of them are very informative and must watch experiences.

The Sacrement was directed by Ti West and starred AJ Bowen and Joe Swanberg loosely covered the terrifying events. It didn’t use the names, but the series of events that occurs is very much the same event right down to the mass suicide by cyanide in their Kool-Aid. It’s a terrifying film, if you haven’t yet watched it, you should, especially if you are intrigued by the events of Jonestown.

We would love to see DiCaprio step into the role of Jones. For now, he is only in talks to take on the role, so nothing established just yet. But, we will keep you all updated on this one if anything becomes official.

‘Final Destination 6’ Coming to HBO Max From ‘Freaks’ Filmmakers

Final

Freaks filmmakers, Zach Lipovsky and Adam B. Stein have been brought on board to direct an upcoming Final Destination 6 for HBO Max. Jon Watts is on as producer with Lori Evans and Guy Buswick as writers.

“I will say that it’s not just going to be another kind of ‘we set up a group of people, they cheat death, and then just death gets them.’ And there’s one wrinkle that we kind of added to every movie to kind of like change it up a little bit: this one is… a true Final Destination movie, but it doesn’t follow that kind of formula that we’ve kind of established.” Jeffrey Reddick told Dread Central.

The synopsis for the first Final Destination went like this:

Alex Browning (Devon Sawa), is embarking on a trip to Paris. Alex experiences a premonition — he sees the plane explode moments after leaving the ground. Alex insists that everyone get off the plane and 7 people including Alex, are forced to disembark. All watch as the plane actually explodes in a fireball. He and the other survivors have briefly cheated death, but will not be able to evade their fate for very long. One by one, these fugitives from fate fall victim to the grim reaper.

We will keep you updated on all things Final Destination.

‘Cloverfield’ Film Finds a Director To Helm Next Entry

Published

Cloverfield

We have seen an incredible three Cloverfield-based films so far. The latest being Cloverfield Paradox on Netflix. The latest in the series also managed to lose steam for the secretive franchise. It went too far into the explanation of secrets that we had seen in the first two films. Once the wizard is discovered behind the curtain the game loses its momentum and fun. The upcoming Cloverfield film has found its director from Under the Shadow’s Babak Anvari.

The director’s Under the Shadow was a great piece of horror. It was entirely effective in its scares and story.

There is no word on where the fourth Cloverfield film will take audiences. But, that is for the best. These films have always been shrouded in secrecy and that is what has made them fun. Well… the first two films anyway.

The synopsis for Cloverfield went like this:

As a group of New Yorkers (Michael Stahl-David, Mike Vogel, Odette Yustman) enjoy a going-away party, little do they know that they will soon face the most terrifying night of their lives. A creature the size of a skyscraper descends upon the city, leaving death and destruction in its wake. Using a handheld video camera, the friends record their struggle to survive as New York crumbles around them.

We are happy to see that Anvari is going to helm this entry. We can’t wait to see what he brings to the franchise and to see what direction this entry takes.

What has been your favorite Cloverfield chapter?
