Blumhouse CEO Hasn’t Hired a Female Director Because Most of Them Aren’t ‘Inclined to Do Horror’
Blumhouse Productions is a name you’ve seen in front of numerous recent hit horror films and franchises, including The Purge, Get Out and this year’s Halloween. With over 70 titles released and another handful on the way, Blumhouse has become a genre film powerhouse — one that has yet to release a single horror film directed by a woman. CEO and founder Jason Blum has an explanation for that, and it sounds pretty ridiculous.
Target’s ‘Child’s Play’ Onesie for Grown-Ups Is the Scariest Halloween Costume This Year
Halloween season is officially upon us, and as usual, the most wonderful time of the year (don’t @ me) brings with it a veritable variety pack of tricks and treats. Treats: Scary movies, fun makeup, awkward parties, so much candy! Tricks: Terrible costumes, ranging from “Sexy Handmaid’s Tale” (no really, someone tried to make that happen) to this abomination inspired by horror movie classic Child’s Play, courtesy of Target.
Werner Herzog Might Be in Jon Favreau’s ‘Star Wars’ TV Series
Last month, German filmmaker and general human icon Werner Herzog revealed that he has an acting role in an upcoming “big franchise film” — leading many to speculate wildly about what that franchise might be. Best guesses included Top Gun: Maverick (starring Herzog’s Jack Reacher co-star Tom Cruise) or possibly Star Wars: Episode IX. As it turns out, Herzog may have misspoke: it would appear that his latest acting gig isn’t for a “big franchise film,” but for a big franchise TV series, and one of those guesses wasn’t entirely off the mark.
‘Black Panther 2’: Ryan Coogler Officially Returning to Write and Direct
Black Panther broke a few box office records, became a massive worldwide hit, and generated a little Oscar buzz along the way — pretty much guaranteeing a sequel and making Ryan Coogler’s return to the director’s chair seem fairly likely. That likelihood just became a certainty, as Coogler has reportedly signed on to write and direct Black Panther 2 for Marvel.

MoviePass Is Trying to Re-Enroll Subscribers Without Their Consent (Again)
MoviePass continues to suffer the longest, slowest, and most painful death in business history. Rather than admit defeat, the company is delaying the inevitable. According to an email sent out late last week, they’re still trying to trick former users into re-enrolling in their increasingly laughable service — by automatically enrolling them in a “test group” unless they choose to opt out.

‘The Romanoffs’ Trailer: ‘Mad Men’ Creator Returns With an Insane Anthology
The Romanoffs raised some eyebrows with its first trailer — the size of the amazing ensemble cast alone seemed wildly ambitious, and left us wondering how Matthew Weiner could gracefully juggle all these interconnected story lines. But the new trailer for the Mad Men creator’s Amazon series comes with some additional details that shed light on Weiner’s approach: It’s an anthology.
‘IT: Chapter Two’ Will Feature One of the Book’s Wildest Moments (No, Not That One)
There are some pretty bonkers moments in Stephen King’s IT, including a couple that would fall pretty low on the list of “most likely to be included in a film adaptation.” As it turns out, at least one of those scenes — a climactic supernatural confrontation — will appear in IT: Chapter Two, Andy Muschietti’s sequel to last year’s hit adaptation of the iconic horror novel. Before you get worried, it’s not THAT scene.
The Rock Shares First ‘Hobbs and Shaw’ Set Photo
The artist occasionally known as The Rock has revealed the first photo from the set of his upcoming — and somewhat controversial, if your name is Vin or Tyrese — Fast & Furious spinoff, Hobbs and Shaw. The film, which seeks to capitalize on the chemistry between the two best (only good?) parts of The Fate of the Furious, has begun production under the direction of Deadpool 2’s David Leitch.
