Night Terrors becomes In the Dark

The web series, Night Terrors, created by writer/directors David Buchert and Chris St.Croix has changed its name to IN THE DARK and is about to become a full-length feature anthology film. When the Tales From The Crypt-styled horror anthology series launched in November of 2011, the first episode, "The Keeper" was immediately banned from Youtube and Vimeo for nudity and violence. Soon after, the production teamed with the popular horror website DreadCentral.com and it enjoyed a successful web run with over 80,000 views. In January the second episode, "Dummy" premiered to even larger numbers. Its trailer alone garnered another 90,000 views on Youtube. According to "The Keeper" director Chris St.Croix, "We realized that we wanted to do more episodes, but we didn't have the funding in place to make it happen fast enough." It was after both episodes were accepted into multiple film festivals that "Dummy" director David Buchert says they knew what they had to do. "Deciding to turn the series into an anthology feature made perfect sense. But we wanted to make sure we could have it out by Halloween 2012 and also keep the same high production values as the first two episodes." So on April 24th, the IN THE DARK Indiegogo fundraising campaign begins.

Mel Gibson in talks for a role in Machete Kills

Deadline is reporting the following: Mel Gibson is now in serious discussions to play a supporting role in Machete Kills, the Robert Rodriguez-directed sequel that will bring Danny Trejo back as the blade-wielding former Federale title character. The film will be released by Fox. In the sequel, Machete is drafted by the U.S. government to track an arms dealer through Mexico before he can launch a rocket. Deadline revealed earlier this month that Gibson was among the talent that Rodriguez was discussing for roles in the film, with others including Michelle Williams. I’m not sure about her, but Gibson is in, I’m told. He takes the role as he prepares to bow Get The Gringo, the film he co-wrote, produced, financed and stars in as the title character. The action drama is bypassing theaters and bowing on DirecTV before coming out on VOD and DVD.
