Lucas Mangum’s Horror Corner is a weekly roundup of recent horror-related posts from around the web; a handy guide to the notable horror happenings of the past week. Enjoy…
Deadline reported that Len Wiseman, the man behind the Underworld franchise and the recent reboot of Total Recall, has been selected to helm the remake of The Mummy. The Boris Karloff original was a horror classic, while Stephen Sommers’ version was an adventure in the vein of Indiana Jones. From what we’ve seen thus far of Wiseman’s work, I’m willing to bet that his retelling will definitely lean more on the adventure side, but will probably nix some of the more comical elements of the Sommers series.
In an interview with Collider, Ivan Reitman revealed that Ghostbusters’ future lies down the reboot path, and that Ghostbusters 3 is very, very unlikely. I’m glad that whether it happens or not isn’t affecting me as much as it is some people. I love Ghostbusters and all, but seriously, I can think of at least 10 worse things than a third film not happening.
The lovely people over at Dread Central created this timeline of the entire Paranormal Activity franchise. It serves as a great recap as we gear up for the fourth film.
