Brandon Camp, son of Joe Camp, will write and direct a reboot of the cute dog franchise “Benji” for Blumhouse Productions.
Yes Blumhouse, the microbudget studio responsible for “Paranormal Activity,” “Insidious,” “The Purge,” and “Sinister” franchises, is behind the project which will allow Brandon free creative rein on the film just like his father when he created the original 1970s films and series outside the studio system.
Described as a modern retelling of the dog tale with a newly rescued new Benji, the film will follow the pooch with an uncanny knack for being in the right place at the right time, usually to help someone overcome a problem.
Both Camp and Jason Blum will produce the project.
TV Promos: Outcast, Preacher, Peaky, CW
Ahead of its June 3rd premiere, Cinemax has made the pilot episode of its new exorcism drama series “Outcast” available online. Created by Robert Kirkman (“The Walking Dead”), the pilot is available to stream for free across a variety of platforms in the U.S. for the next two full weeks before the series premieres. Sadly it’s geo-locked so only those within the United States can see it.
Ahead of its debut this Sunday, AMC’s “Preacher” has been pushing the series hard and have made use of producer Seth Rogen’s involvement by producing a video parodying the trailers so far – with the “Neighbors” star playing every role in a shoestring budget version.
Netflix has released the third season trailer for the critically-acclaimed British period crime drama series “Peaky Blinders”. In the new season Cillian Murphy’s Thomas Shelby is contacted by a secret organization on his own wedding day, and soon finds himself at the centre of an international arms deal that could change the course of history. All six episodes will premiere exclusively on Netflix in the US on May 31st, joining the first two which are available now.
The last of the networks to do their upfront presentations is also the last to reveal their promo clips, check out three trailers the CW published yesterday – one celebrating their DC Comics series adaptations as a whole (including next season’s Supergirl) along with extended looks at two of their new series – “Frequency” and “No Tomorrow”.
