** THE MEG: Getting more excitement and attention than quite a few of his other films in recent years, the Jason Statham-led prehistoric shark thriller THE MEG hits this Summer and reaction to the first trailer the other week put the long-gestating film on many people's radar.
Based on Steve Alten's novel, the book was the first in a series and Statham tells EW that if audiences warm to it then there's room for a potential franchise: "I think it's like anything in this day and age — if it makes money, there's obviously an appetite to make more money. And if it doesn't do well, they'll soon sweep it under the carpet. But that's the way Hollywood works. Everyone tries to make a good film, and it lies in the hands of the audience. People are the ultimate decider; the audience is the decider of whether anything gets to be a sequel or not."
Statham plays diver Jonas Taylor who faces off with the 75-foot shark who has attacked and disabled a deep-sea submersible in the Pacific Ocean. Talking about his role, Statham says: "He gets brought in to save the crew at the bottom of the ocean that's confronted with this 75-foot shark. Taylor encountered this shark many years ago, but everyone thought he was crazy. Turns out, everybody was wrong!"
John Turteltaub is directing the film from a script by Dean Georgaris, Jon Hoeber & Erich Hoeber. THE MEG opens August 10th. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)

** HALLOWEEN: Jason Blum confirming on Twitter the long-running but not yet certain news – that John Carpenter is providing the score for the new ALLOWEEN this year. This would mark Carpenter's first full film score since 2001's GHOSTS OF MARS, he previously indicated he would probably provide the reboot soundtrack but wasn't quite sure at the time:
"I am an executive producer and it looks clear to me that I've made a deal to do the music… There are many options. I'll be consulting with the director to see what he feels. I could create a new score, we could update the old score and amplify it, or we could combine those two things. I'll have to see the movie to see what it requires."
Blum doesn't provide specific details though in his tweet, only confirming Carpenter is onboard to do it. David Gordon Green helms the film which serves as a direct sequel to the 1978 original, bypassing the various sequels that came after. Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her signature role of Laurie Strode who is now a grandmother. Speaking with Yahoo, she offered her take on the new film:
"And as soon as I read what David Green and Danny McBride had come up with … and the way that they connected the dots of the story, it made so much sense to me that it felt totally appropriate for me to return to Haddonfield, Ill., for another 40th-anniversary retelling. There was the idea of, 'What do you call it?' If I had had my druthers, I probably would've called it Halloween Retold. Because it's being retold. It's the original story in many, many, many ways. Just retold 40 years later with my granddaughter."
Andi Matichak takes on the role of said granddaughter opposite Curtis and Judy Greer as the young girl's mother & Laurie's daughter. Curtis also says she's seen a trailer and: "It's terrifying. They went full-tilt boogeyman. And I've never said that in my life, and I will say full-tilt boogeyman for the rest of the year as I go around talking about this." (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)

I think David did a terrific job. He did everything I hoped he would do which is respect the DNA of the franchise and bring something totally new to it and we're really very very excited for people to see it.

** THE MEG: Here's the International poster and second poster.
** A QUIET PLACE sequel: Soaring to the top of the box-office this weekend and scoring excellent reviews, John Krasinski's horror film A QUIET PLACE has been enough of a success that talk of a sequel has already begun. Funnily enough, it seems the film's scribes Bryan Woods and Scott Beck already have a handful of ideas for a follow-up. Speaking with Fandango, Beck says he and Woods have plenty of stories and set pieces they didn't use that could be tweaked for a sequel:
"There are so many discarded set pieces, too, just hiding out on Word documents on our computer. So, yeah, there are certainly so many stories you could tell. It's just really, at the end of the day, who are the characters in this and what does this situation mean to that dynamic?"
Kosinski himself also re-wrote the pair's script, making some adjustments such as the sand paths, but the most notable change was he ditched flashbacks that were in the original script. Producer Andrew Form tells Heat Vision:
"Initially, there were flashbacks where the characters talked. Also, the sibling's death was handled in a flashback. John was adamant that we get rid of it, making it present day and kept the urgency of the storytelling." (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)

With time running out, expert deep sea rescue diver Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) is recruited by a visionary Chinese oceanographer (Winston Chao), against the wishes of his daughter Suyin (Li Bingbing), to save the crew—and the ocean itself—from this unstoppable threat: a pre-historic 75-foot-long shark known as the Megalodon.

Now, teamed with Suyin, he must confront his fears and risk his own life to save everyone trapped below…bringing him face to face once more with the greatest and largest predator of all time.

** Platinum Dunes update: Having made their name on remakes of classic horror from THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE to FRIDAY THE 13TH to A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET production company Platinum Dunes is now stepping back from the remake trough. Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller formed the company in the early 2000s and released numerous rehashes including THE AMITYVILLE HORROR and THE HITCHER amongst others, but have also had some original horror hits including THE PURGE and OUIJA films and this past weekend's smash hit A QUIET PLACE.
Speaking with CinePop this week, Fuller revealed the company is going to focus on original genre entertainment as their main focus going forward: "We've rebooted enough. We've done all of our [rebooted] horror movies. We're not going to be doing that anymore. For us, as a company, we're always looking for original material. And the idea of finding something original was important for us. We made a film where there's two to three minutes of talking in the movie, where sound is a full character, and it feels like audiences are really responding to those ingredients."
What that means for their long in the works remake of THE BIRDS is unclear. The company's upcoming projects include a live-action adaptation of DORA THE EXPLORER, a fourth film in THE PURGE franchise, and a TV series adaptation of Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan books. (thanks to DarkHorizons.com)

** HALLOWEEN: Michael Myers' mask has undergone some changes over the course of the various films, starting out originally as a painted William Shatner mask to undergoing numerous tweaks in the sequels and remakes.
With the upcoming film, a direct sequel to the original 1978 movie which ignores all the other sequels, the plan is to both go back to the original and shake things up with a couple of ageing effects. Make-up artist Christopher Nelson spoke with Halloween News Daily and revealed how they approached the mask's look for the new film:
"The film takes place 40 years later, so you're not going to have that same mask, it's not going to be this pristine, beautiful thing that it was in 1978. You have to approach it from that standpoint.
I had forty-year-old masks that I studied and looked at how they broke down, how they wrinkled, how they did this and how they did that. I also took into account the context of the film. Where is the mask now and where has it been for these forty years? Without revealing anything, I took that into context. I had hundreds of photos and books.
I mostly really wanted to capture that feeling you got when you saw Michael Myers. I was also talking to [director] David [Gordon Green] about how we were going to shoot it, and being very careful about it, very strategic about it, looking back at [original film director John] Carpenter and [director of photography] Dean Cundey and how they did that. That's how I approached the mask.
I wanted to create the character of Michael Myers, not just the mask. You're not creating just a mask. You're creating a character. You're creating a feeling that you get that does have an expression.
The mask does have an expression, but also the mask looks completely different in every single angle it's ever been photographed at, and I wanted that feeling too. I wanted the feeling that when you saw Michael Myers, it morphs, it changes, it looks different from every single angle, like the original one did. I can safely say we accomplished that."
