We first reported on this film back in November, and now it looks like UK Independent film Warhouse is going on the sales block early next week in France. Joseph Morgan (“Vampire Diaries”, Immortals) and Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior, Flypaper) star in the new film from director Luke Massey.
“In the role of Royal Marine, A.J. Budd, Joseph Morgan stars in this brutal psychological and supernatural thriller, in which he finds himself trapped in the Warhouse. Imprisoned, he is forced to fight for his life against grotesque, inhuman opponents. He must kill every day or die himself. His one glimmer of hope comes in the form of a diary, left by a former occupant of the house, WWI Lieutenant Edward Sterling, played by Matt Ryan.”

Yesterday I posted about Fox’s “The Following” (aka the new Kevin Williamson show) and you guys seemed pretty excited about it, so I figured I’d pass the trailer along today. The show stars Kevin Bacon, Natalie Zea (“Justified”, The Other Guys), Shawn Ashmore (Frozen, Mother’s Day), and James Purefoy (“Rome”).
“THE FBI estimates there are currently over 300 active serial killers in the United States. What would happen if these killers had a way of communicating and connecting with each other? What if they were able to work together and form alliances across the country? What if one brilliant psychotic serial killer was able to bring them all together and activate a following? Welcome to “The Following”, the terrifying new thriller from creator/executive producer Kevin Williamson (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Dawson’s Creek,” the ‘Scream’ franchise). When notorious serial killer Joe Carroll (James Purefoy, “Rome”) escapes from death row and embarks on a new killing spree, the FBI calls former agent Ryan Hardy (Emmy-nominated actor Kevin Bacon, ‘X-Men: First Class’) to consult on the case. Having since withdrawn from the public eye, Hardy was responsible for Carroll’s capture nine years ago, after Carroll murdered 14 female students on the Virginia college campus where he taught literature.”

There are like 5 projects never seem to stop casting. “666 Park Avenue” is one of them. ABC’s supernatural-tinged drama pilot. has now added Helena Mattsson (pictured inside; Iron Man 2, Seven Psychopaths) to its roster of talent. She just recently wrapped the upcoming Babymakers. She joins the previously announced Vanessa Williams, Rachael Taylor, Dave Annabele and Terry O’Quinn.
Per Variety, “Mattsson, who will play the role of Alexis, recently appeared in the CW’s “Nikita” and also had a recurring role in “Desperate Housewives.” She will next be seen in the film “The Babymakers,” opposite Aisha Tyler and Olivia Munn.”
The thriller, based on the Gabriella Pierce book series of the same name, “centers on a young couple (Rachael Taylor and Dave Annable) that accepts an offer to manage one of the most historic apartment buildings in New York City. They unwittingly begin to experience supernatural occurrences, which complicate and endanger the lives of everyone in the building.”
The pilot was written by “Fringe” scribe David Wilcox. READ MORE
At the very least, it sounds like “666 Park Avenue” has kind of a killer premise. It’s about a young couple who move from the midwest to NYC and discover that the apartment building they’ve agreed to manage is filled with people who have made deals with the Devil.
And then you find out that ABC is working with the producers of “Gossip Girl” and “The Vampire Diaries” to bring this to you and you wonder if they might play it all for surface value.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, “From Warner Bros. Television and Alloy, ’666 Park’ is based on the book series by Gabriella Pierce. Like the books, the drama centers on an innocent couple from the midwest that moves to New York and gets hired to be resident managers of a building on the Upper East Side. There, unbeknownst to the couple, the residents have all unwittingly made deals with the Devil to have their deepest needs, ambitions and desires fulfilled. David Wilcox is attached to adapt the project.”
What do you think? Can this team bring us something special or will it just be a quickly fizzling soap? READ MORE
Deadline reports that “Vampire Diaries” co-creator/ executive producer Kevin Williamson is working on a new supernatural drama project, envisioned as a potential companion for the CW’s flagship vampire drama. The untitled project, which is in early stages of development at Warner Bros. TV for the CW, is described as “The X-Files meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” It focuses on a group of people who investigate paranormal happenings. They add that Williamson’s fellow “Vampire Diaries” co-creator/executive producer Julie Plec is in talks to come onboard and co-write the project with him. Since there is no deal with the network and no script yet, it is not clear if the paranormal drama would make it for this upcoming pilot season.
