Samara Weaving is Going to Kick-Butt Again in Simon Barrett’s ‘Azrael’

Published

Weaving

Samara Weaving is our favorite current final girl. She has made herself a place within the walls of horror and action. Good thing You’re Next writer Simon Barrett knows that and is going to put Weaving into action in his next film, Azrael.

Barrett also wrote the balls-to-the-wall action film, The Guest; which we still entirely love. The writer has always been able to turn genre inside out and mix several elements together into a perfect cocktail. Needless to say we are excited to see Azrael and what Weaving will bring to it.

“Story details are being kept under wraps on this one, but we know that Joker financier Jason Cloth and his C2 Motion Picture Group partner Dave Caplan recently won the rights in a competitive situation and will finance and produce.” Deadline reports.

There are no details on Azrael or who Weaving will play in the film, but the folks working on it are already hoping that they have a franchise in the midst with this one kicking it off.

We will keep you updated on further developments.

Plaza

Aubrey Plaza has long been a self-affirmed “sea hag”. Her dark personality and sense of humor has long been a favorite of ours. Now, with her production company, Evil Hag Productions, she intends to make a family-friendly film that is something like Tim Burton meets Hocus Pocus.

While talking to GQ, Plaza said that she would like to “…fill the Tim Burton slot” by putting together her first directorial effort. The family-friendly affair is said to be a mix of Beetlejuice and Hocus Pocus.

Plaza can currently be seen in Evil Hag Production’s Emily the Criminal and on HBO’s White Lotus season 2.

We can’t wait to see what Plaza has to offer in her directorial efforts. It would be great to see her built a brand and aesthetic as awesome as Burton’s.

Published

Knock

M. Night Shyamalan’s next film is already on its way. The ominous Knock at the Cabin is incredibly intriguing, especially since the first trailer gave away so little. The first poster for Knock at the Cabin is just as ominous as the teaser.

Shyamalan’s last film Old, played up the Twilight Zone like mystery and took it to Sci-Fi levels. Knock at the Cabin looks to trump that and move far into the horror/thriller genre.

The synopsis for Knock at the Cabin goes like this:

“While vacationing at a remote cabin, a young girl and her parents are taken hostage by four armed strangers who demand that the family make an unthinkable choice to avert the apocalypse. With limited access to the outside world, the family must decide what they believe before all is lost.”

Knock at the Cabin arrives in theaters beginning February 3.

Cocaine

Elizabeth Banks has decided to grace our eyeballs with one of the wildest titles, posters and film synopsis’ of the past decade. I’m of course talking about Cocaine Bear. This true story is one of those that you have to see to believe. But, the title is exactly what you think it is.

Kentucky 1985 was the time and place. A really unlucky bear ingested a lot of cocaine that was dropped in the woods by a smuggler. Unfortunately, the bear died from an overdose but not before going on a real rager beforehand.

Deadline’s synopsis for Cocaine Bear is as follows:

“The movie finds an oddball group of cops, criminals, tourists and teens converging in a Georgia forest where a 500- pound apex predator has ingested a staggering amount of cocaine and gone on a coke-fueled rampage for more blow … and blood.”

The film stars Keri Russell, Ray Liotta, Alden Ehrenreich, O’Shea Jackson and Jesse Tyler Ferguson.

Cocaine Bear comes raging into theaters February 24.
