After more than a decade since the original, Rob Zombie's 2005 film The Devil's Rejects is getting a sequel. It is being reporting that Rob Zombie is in fact returning to the director's chair for a follow-up to one of his best-reviewed films. Here's what else we know.
The Devil's Rejects told the story of the murderous Firefly family in Ruggsville, Texas. A group of serial killers, they escape a police raid on their home with plans to continue doing the devil's work. To do so, they must contend with the vicious and vengeful Sheriff Wydell, who is intent on ending their sadism and their lives.
For fans of Rob Zombie's work and horror in general, a sequel should come as welcome news. Zombie's films, though divisive, are unique and distinctly his own in the horror landscape. The Devil's Rejects has even become something of a cult classic, with many die-hard fans of the film out there who no doubt will love this news. Big-screen horror is having something of a renaissance in the past year or two, receiving both critical acclaim and commercial success, so that makes now as good a time as any to return to The Devil's Rejects.
Given the finality of the way the original ended, a true sequel seems unlikely. Therefore, it is unclear as of yet what form this film will take. Will it be a reboot or a prequel? Or perhaps it will be some sort of spinoff set in the same universe as The Devil's Rejects and the film that begat it, Zombie's directorial debut, 2003's House of 1000 Corpses. Details, as reported by Bloody Disgusting, are scarce at the moment so we don't know anything about the story, when this will shoot, or how soon we can see it in theater

A few years back, an official Contra mobile gamewas released in China. Konami isn’t stopping there, and teaming up with a Chinese media giant for a live-action Contra movie and TV drama.
The film project was first revealed earlier this year, and via China Film Insider, here is the initial synopsis:
In 1988, a huge meteorite lands on an uninhabited island in the South China Sea.
Chen Qiang and Li Zhiyong investigate but come up empty handed. 29 years later, Chen sends commandos Bill and Lance into a combat mission there to neutralize the villainous Red Falcon Organization, but end up facing a different enemy altogether.
The storylines in the Japanese and English-language versions of the game were different, and the movie seems to be taking elements from both.
Pick a path, face your fears, there’s only one way out!”

Following the huge success of summer blockbuster “It,” Paramount is ready to get the gears moving on another Stephen King classic.
“Starry Eyes” helmers Kevin Kolsch and Dennis Widmyer have been tapped to direct a “Pet Sematary” remake at the studio.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian are producing the remake to the 1989 horror classic, which was directed by Mary Lambert and written by King, along with Steven Schneider. Jeff Buhler and David Kajganich wrote the script, and Alexandra Loewy is executive producing for Paramount.
The original “Pet Sematary” was based on the King novel, which follows the travails of a family who moves into a new home next to a cemetery endowed with powers that allow the creatures buried in it to come back from the dead.
The original brought in $57 million on an $11 million budget, which led to a less commercially successful 1992 sequel starring Edward Furlong and Anthony Edwards.
Thomas Jane recently spoke with Shadow Nation about the plot of the upcoming Predator film. Here's what he had to say
"We play these veterans from like Afghanistan, Iraq war or whatever. But we’re all fucking crazy so we go to the VA hospital to get our meds. We’re all like shellshocked, PTSD…soldiers. We’re at the VA hospital and we’re in group therapy and of course, somebody flips out…this is backstory, I don’t think we really see this…somebody flips out and we all get arrested and get thrown onto the bus to go down to the hospital and they throw this other guy on the bus too.
And he’s a guy they’ve actually marked to kill him because he’s seen a UFO, he’s seen the Predator ships come down so they lock him up and throw him in with us lunatics. They’re going to take that bus, drive it down to a ditch and shoot us all just to get rid of this one guy. But, of course, we take the bus over and we’re all like “fuck that man, let’s go kill these fucking Predators ourselves” and we’re just crazy enough to believe that this guy really did see a UFO and there’s these aliens out there. So that’s kinda cool!”
Sounds awesome to me. Predator opens on August 13, 2018
