Monday’s Rushes – Red Riding Hood, Deadpool, The Middle Men Orgy and More

The UK poster for Night of the Demons rolled up at Shock. I saw the film last year and said:

This movie was both bloated and boring, texturally and structurally similar to any number of big-budget studio remakes of 70s and 80s horror hits. It was profoundly redundant and had nothing to say, no reason to exist beyond commercial interest and never even threatened originality of personal vision. This is the Shannon Elizabeth comeback film, the Eddie Furlong comeback film, the weak marketing exercise dressed up as cinema film.

EW reveal that Ricky Gervais is to guest star on The Simpsons, in the role of a smug, deeply irritating little imp.

Annette Bening, Terry Gilliam (hurrah!) and Gregg Araki (boo!) are all to be feted at this year’s Deauville film festival, reports Variety.

MoviesOnline said “Will there be more Hellboy? Yes or no?”, Guillermo de Toro said “I would love to. Yes.”

Patrick Dempsey and Shia LaBoeuf’s characters have a fight in Transformers 3. Here’s some video evidence.

When WikiLeaks goes Star Wars, you get… WookieLeaks.

Steven Moffat tells Den of Geek that he’s writing 5 epsiodes for next year’s series of Dr. Who.

Collider pointed the way to Accidental Sexiness‘ gallery of Red Riding Hood on-location snaps. Here’s the best:

The Playlist are reporting that Tom Hanks, James McAvoy, Natalie Portman and Halle Berry have gone beyond being interested in Tom Tykwers’s sci-fi picture Cloud Atlas to becoming officially “attached”. Ian McKellen, who was previously circling the project, has not apparently formalised his interes in the same way.

There’s a movie of Top Cow’s upcoming comic Crosshair in the works. From the press release:

Created by Marc Silvestri, written by Jeff Katz, and illustrated by Silverstri and Allan Jefferson, Crosshair follows a former CIA assassin turned suburban superdad who faces his most dangerous enemy ever – himself. Justin Weller learns that he has 48 hours until a suppressed program in his brain will turn him into an unstoppable killing machine aimed at the President of the United States. Weller races against the clock to uncover and reverse the source of his trigger.

This is the second collaboration between Mandeville and Top Cow. At last year’s Comic-Con, the two joined forces to develop a feature version of Top Cow’s title, Alibi.

According to an AFP report, the makers of The Expendables left some serious debt behind after filming in Brazil.

Producer Jonathon Sothcott is using Dread Central to hype his upcoming Strippers vs. Werewolves. The first casting was announced, and it’s Adele Silver “what was on Emmerdale Farm”, and they ran the following piece of… er… “artwork”.

Terrence Malick’s The Tree of Life  will not be ready for a Toronto premiere… nor a Venice one… so how about London? The Star quote TIFF co-director Cameron Bailey:

We know he’s definitely still working on the film, and he’s tired of being pushed by people. We’ve backed off and Venice has backed off.

Robert Rodriguez is now formally negotiating for the director’s job on the Deadpool movie, as per Hero Complex. Seems like a reasonable pairing.

The online porn-boom drama Middle Men has had it’s orgy scene removied to attain an R-rating. You can, however, see it at Gone Hollywood.
