[News Bites] ‘The Crow’ Script Turned In, ‘Walking Dead’ Zombie Makeup, ‘American Horror’ Teaser, ‘Suspiria’ Update & ‘World War Z’ Zombie Attack!

Producer Edward R. Pressman talked with Variety about a few upcoming projects, one of which included the forthcoming remake of The Crow. In a news brief, he explains that Watchmen‘s Alex Tse has delivered “in the last 48 hours” the screenplay for Spaniard Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s The Crow, another reinvention, this time of Alex Proyas’ 1994 original. There is still yet to be a star attached to play Eric Draven, a man brutally murdered comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancée’s murder.

Still in development is a remake of Dario Argento’s Suspiria, which Complex got fresh story details out of director David Gordon Green. “['Black Swan'] did inspire me to think, ‘Well, I want to go younger now. I want this to be about 14, 15-year-old girls, rather than women who are Natalie’s age.’ It made not want to do what ‘Black Swan’ kind of did with the psychology and thriller elements of older characters. If anything, I want to focus on the younger, more naïve kinds of characters–the wide-eyed, ‘Snow White’ version of the movie, rather than a more sophisticated, sexual version of it.

Co-created by former “Nip/Tuck” executive producers and current “Glee” co-creators/executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, inside you’ll find a third teaser trailer for “American Horror Story,” which premieres October 5th on FX and will run Wednesdays at 10 PM ET/PT. The show revolves around The Harmons, a family of three who move from Boston to Los Angeles as a means to reconcile past anguish.

What turns an everyday human into a walking, biting member of the undead? Some might say the sallow skin or the open wounds or the bloody teeth. All valid arguments. But to really sell an undead soul, you have to have the eyes. And in this new behind-the-scenes video, “The Walking Dead”‘s contact lens tech Gazal Trabizpor describes what goes into giving zombies their ghastly stare. This season, she explains, the new contact lenses are “a little more gruesome, a lot more detailed…” Watch the video inside now to see first-hand the eyes of the enemy. “The Walking Dead “returns Sun., Oct. 19 at 10/9c with a special 90-minute episode, only on AMC.
