News Bites: King’s ‘Under the Dome’ Adapted, NECA Teases ‘Evil Dead 2′ Ash, ‘Jurassic Park IV’ & ‘Truth Below’ Clips

In a new article over at Variety, they reveal that “The River” writer Michael Green is at work adapting the Stephen King tome “Under the Dome” in preparation for DreamWorks TV to shop to broadcast and cable buyers in a few months. The book goes a little something like this: “Just down Route 119 in Chester’s Mill, Maine, all hell is about to break loose… On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day, a small town is suddenly and inexplicably sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field.

As for the long-gestured fourth Jurassic Park, Sam Neill tells MTV he personally believes the franchise is “done,” not that he has any true insight into the development process at Universal. “I think we’ve told the story. I think it’s done,” he explained further adding, “Stan Winston who made those beautiful dinosaurs died. So, no Stan, no ‘Jurassic Park’ really…” Again, this is just an actor’s perspective….

Back on May 5 NECA revealed they’ve licensed the rights to do a line of figures based on Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead 2. While there’s no info on just how many figures or variations there will be, this weekend they unveiled a prototype teaser of Bruce Campbell as “Ash”. You can dig on the image inside.

Also inside you’ll find a slew of behind-the-scenes videos from “The Truth Below,” MTV’s survival horror film from Behind the Mask director Scott Glosserman. Premiering on June 16, “A fun Spring break snowboarding trip soon turns into a terrifying journey as a group of four friends; Jenna (Gillian Zinser), Ethan (Reid Ewing), Liam (Ricky Mabe) and Dante (Nick Thurston), begin to make their way home from the mountain. When unpredictable weather forces their car to spin off the road, all four become trapped in the vehicle, buried by an avalanche. Without any sign of rescue, the group decides to spend their last moments confessing deep secrets, only to reveal disturbing and unsettling pasts – which test and call into question their own friendships. As tension builds and air supply declines, the game soon turns deadly as they discover they not only have to survive the accident, but also each other. One question remains– How well do you know your friends?
