“When I finish in a couple of months, the studios will get together for a bidding war or an intervention,” Joss Whedon told a Comic Con audience Friday.
Whedon, who wrote and directed the two highest-grossing Marvel movies ever, says his latest screenplay is:
1) Historical fiction; and
2) Not an adaptation.
Whedon said the project drew at least some inspiration from director Nicolas Lopez’ 2012 Chilean thriller “Aftershock,” starring Eli Roth as an American caught with locals in a devastating South American earthquake. Lopez and Roth co-wrote the movie, based on actual events that followed the 8.8 earthquake that stuck Chile in 2010. It depicts dismemberment, decapitation and escaped prisoners who embark on a rampage of rape and slaughter.
“It’s very disturbing,” allowed Whedon.

Hey, guess what? The Woods is actually a sneaky BLAIR WITCH sequel!

The team behind You’re Next and The Guest made a Blair Witch reboot/sequel and kept it (mostly) secret!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. The dynamic duo of Simon Barrett and Adam Wingard have given us some really quality genre stuff recently, going back to A Horrible Way To Die, cruising through with the great double whammy of You’re Next and The Guest and finally bringing us to The Woods.
Rumors were swirling around this one going back a full year. It was late last year a trusted source told me Adam and Simon were going to make a big reboot/sequel of a movie with the initials B.W.
At the time I thought it’d be cool if this team tackled Blair Witch, but when the movie was announced as The Woods (complete with poster and trailer) I figured either the people I knew were mistaken or maybe they changed gears somewhere along in production and decided to make it an original horror film.
Last night at San Diego Comic-Con they held their first public screening and wouldn’t you know it… the damn thing actually is a sneaky sequel to/reboot of BLAIR WITCH. Here’s the new trailer for proof!
 

 
Kudos to Lionsgate for keeping the secret so well and not buckling when the rumors of this being a Blair Witch movie started surfacing online. That first Blair Witch was a cultural phenomenon. I remember lines around the theater for it and my own first viewing, which was a not exactly legal VHS tape right after it premiered at Sundance and the word hadn’t gotten around yet that it was a fake doc.
It’s hard to tell

‘Star Trek Beyond’ Flying To Decent $60.3M: But Why Is Opening Lower Than ‘Into Darkness’?

UPDATE, Friday 11PM: Prior to July 4th, we observed that Paramount/Skydance’s Star Trek Beyond could post a weekend north of $60M, and that’s exactly what we’re seeing this. That’s a decent result, and the third best bow out of the Skydance/Bad Robot Star Trek series, however, the Justin Lin film is 14% off the opening of its second installment, Star Trek Into Darkness which debuted to $70.9M.
But still we can’t ignore the fact that Star Trek Beyond’s opening is $10.6M…
