On November 30 LD Entertainment will open The Collection revealing all of the nasty items within. The film is directed by Marcus Dunstan and written by Dunstan and Patrick Melton (their writing credits include Piranha 3DD, Feast, Saw IV, V, VI, Saw 3D and of course The Collector and Pacific Rim). I sat down with the pair earlier today, and while my full interview with them doesn’t hit until Thursday I figured I’d share a few tidbits on Waterproof and The Collected – the potential third installment of The Collector!
In the new sequel, “When Elena’s (Emma Fitzpatrick) friends take her to a secret party at an undisclosed location, she never imagined she would become the latest victim of The Collector, a psychopathic killer. The Collector kidnaps and transports her to an abandoned hotel he’s transformed into his own private maze of torture and death. Upon learning of his daughter’s disappearance, Elena’s wealthy father (Christopher McDonald) hires a group of mercenaries to retrieve her from the vicious grips of The Collector. These mercenaries coerce Arkin (Josh Stewart), the only man to have escaped the wrath of this heinous monster, to lead them through thegruesome labyrinth. Now, Arkin finds himself fighting for his own life in order to save Elena.”
MILD SPOILERS for The Collection follow (a film you should definitely see on Friday if you liked The Collector). Head inside to check it out and come back for the full-length interview on Thursday! READ MORE

The new American Godzilla isn’t dead, it’s just in chrysalis.
Monsters director Gareth Edwards is still is attached to direct the latest revamp of Godzilla for Legendary Pictures and Max Borenstein is rewriting David Goyer’s draft. Speaking at the Kapow Comic Book Convention recently Edwards offered, “It’s going great and I’m genuinely excited about it. We’re just working really hard with Legendary, who have been fantastic. Thomas Tull has just been an absolute pleasure and nothing like the experience they warn you about when you go to Hollywood. I can’t say much other than I hope that we’ll have some proper news soon. So you won’t have to wait too long at all.”
He added, “Well, we are in the worst part of the whole film making process which is waiting. We spent almost a year working on the script and on different drafts, going back and forth trading emails with the production company and everything. I had this lucky chance of writing with Mark and so I feel like, it’s a strange feeling, because at the same time I feel like a lot has happened, but at the same time I’m so deep in the project…”
Making his first appearance in 1954 (Gojira) Godzilla is a giant monster that lives in the sea that comes from the ocean to feed on mankind. In 1998, TriStar Pictures produced a remake set in New York City, directed by Roland Emmerich and starring Matthew Broderick.
