Devil’s Night
Blumhouse Productions have set up the micro-budget horror film “Devil’s Night” which Jason Blum and Bobbi Sue Luther will produce. Sean Tretta (“12 Monkeys”) penned the script which is set on the night before Halloween, a night with a tradition of youth causing mischief.

Though it has existed since the 1930s, at a point in the 1980s in inner city places like Detroit, the crimes became more destructive – moving up to the likes of arson and vandalism. Ryan Turek will oversee the project for Blumhouse. [Source: Heat Vision]

Jurassic World
Actor Jeff Goldblum was recently asked by Fandango about whether he’d ever consider returning to series. The actor responded with one of the best answers an actor could possibly give to that question:

“I’m nothing if not open. I’m like an open-faced sandwich. My door is not always open – I took the door off. I removed the hinges from the door. I’m too open. I’m like a chicken piccata. What was I about to say? Oh yes, the two [Jurassic Park] movies I did with them were plenty. If I never did anything more, I’d certainly be well satisfied.”

Activision has announced that a new four-player co-op “Ghostbusters” video game will debut on July 12th – three days ahead of the new film reboot of the franchise on July 15th. The game is available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC and is set after the events of the upcoming film. You will be able to form a new squad of Ghostbusters who are vying to keep New York City safe.
