To be shot in Bethlehem? Well, maybe that’s a lie, but the movie is tentatively titled “Bethlehem.” So, that’s a start, for sure!
I like the The Walking Dead because of it’s hard charging plot line and not so much for the zombies.
I know, that’s like some idiot saying, “I totally read Playboy for the articles.”
But, whatever, zombies are cool and everything, but they just seem too easy and played out anymore.
Again, don’t get me wrong, I like a good zombie film as much as they next dude, but, we need a new pop culture monster.
I’m voting for whatever that thing was in the Creature from the Black Lagoon.
“Bethlehem” is the working title of a movie whose script was bought this month by Universal Studios. Its production has been fast-tracked, according to several cinema websites.
The movie follows the last few humans struggling to survive a zombie apocalypse. The humans form an alliance with a vampire. They trade themselves as food in exchange for protection since, the script asserts, zombies don’t eat vampires.
It’s being produced by Joe Roth Productions, the company behind the current Universal hit “Snow White and The Huntsman.” The Kristen Stewart/Charlize Theron dark fairy tale has taken in more than $247 million worldwide since its June 1 release.
In a June 15 article for The Script magazine’s website, “Bethlehem” screenwriter Larry Brenner says the script is a horror/comedy originally titled “Flesh and Blood.” It took third place in the 2010 Final Draft Big Break, a national screenwriting competition. SOURCE: The Morning Call
I call this the “Candlebox Syndrome”. It’s when something wildly popular comes around and does really well and then someone tries to cash in after the whole wave of coolness has died down, but they still don’t quite get why everyone’s not still excited about the craze.
Case in point, grunge music was super duper awesome back in 1991 and then sometime around 1994 Candlebox came out and was like, yeah, we’re gonna make grunge, but everyone was already passed that phase and was onto post grunge.
Whatever. haha. Candlebox. A box full of candles. So dumb.
