News Bites: ‘REC’ Wedding, Animated ‘Monster,’ ‘Exorcist’ Play, Dracula Badass Again & First ‘House’ Pic

Click on over to the official Facebook page for Filmax’s now-filming REC 3: Genesis and you’ll find a slew of behind-the-scenes wedding photos, which is pretty much like looking through a boring wedding album. It’s hard to complain considering how awesome the first batch of stills were. Paco Plaza is behind the camera solo this time around, with Leticia Dolera and Diego Martin both starring. Watch this spot for an exclusive set report in the coming week.

The boys at /Film caught wind of a bizarre animated project from artist/director Rosto entitled The Monster of Nix, which feature the voice talents of Terry Gilliam and Tom Waits. The animated musical is about Willy, “a troubled boy who fights the destructive force of an all-devouring monster in the village of Nix.” Tom Waits voices Virgil, “a terrifying giant pitch-black swallow,” and Terry Gilliam is voicing the Ranger, “who locks himself up in terror in his forest cabin.” You’ll find a really weird teaser video inside.

Just the other day we told you about a Silence of the Lambs spoof heading to Broadway, now Los Angeles is getting one that’s more head-spinning. A John Doyle-helmed stage adaptation of The Exorcist and world preem plays by Alan Alda and Beth Henley are on tap for the 2011-12 season at L.A.’s Geffen Playhouse, writes Variety. “Agnes of God” playwright John Pielmeier adapts William Peter Blatty’s 1971 novel, also the inspiration for the famous 1973 horror pic. Production from director Doyle (“Sweeney Todd”) is slated to play July 3-Aug. 12, 2012.

It was announced last month that House of Wax and Orphan director Jaume Collet-Serra would be telling a re-imagining of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” in Harker. Details were slim as it’s said to focus on Jonathan Harker as the Scotland Yard detective who is tracking Dracula, with the script setting up the sleuth as a potential new franchise character. Collet-Serra chatted up with Spanish site Aullidos explaining their gonna make the Count nice and evil again: “[Today is all about] vampires and very romance for girls thirteen years. But we want to bring back Dracula and demonstrate who is boss.” Hell yes! Warner Bros. is behind this little fella.

Update: Image removed at request of Relativity. Lastly, check out this teaser image from Mark Tonderai’s House at the End of the Street, which “centers on a teen girl (Jennifer Lawrence) who moves with her mom to a new town and learns that their home is across the street from a house where a double murder took place. Complications ensue when the teen befriends the massacre’s sole surviving son (Max Thieriot). Elisabeth Shue costars as Lawrence’s mom.” In theaters February 3 from Relativity Media.
