A half-naked 25-foot Jeff Goldblum statue was placed in all its glory from now until July 26th. The statue is 25 feet long and 9.8 feet high and weighs over 330 lbs. It took over six weeks and 250 hours to complete the tribute to one of Jurassic Park’s most iconic moments.

3. Soska Sisters’ Rabid Remake Begins Shooting:
The news was accompanied by a press release which includes casting updates. It’s been close to 2 years since we first got wind of a remake of David Cronenberg’s Rabid, to be helmed by Canadian filmmakers Jen Soska and Sylvia Soska.
Canadian production company Back 40 Pictures announced today that production has begun in the Greater Toronto Area on the feature film Rabid. Written and Directed by Jen and Sylvia Soska (Dead Hooker in A Trunk, American Mary) and John Serge. Rabid stars Laura Vandervoort (Jigsaw, Bitten) as “Rose” a demure seamstress who goes through a radical transformation after electing for plastic surgery following a disfiguring accident. Ben Hollingsworth (Code Black) is “Brad” a fashion photographer. Rabid is a remake of the classic David Cronenberg 1977 horror feature film which was executive produced by Ivan Reitman. Rabid also stars Hanneke Talbot (Playing Dead) who portrays Rose’s best friend Chelsea and Mackenzie Gray (Legion, Riverdale) as arrogant fashion designer “Gunter”. Rabid will also feature WWE superstars CM Punk as “Billy” and his wife New York Times best-selling author AJ Mendez as “Kira”.
2. Halloween 2018 script required 80 drafts, and constant rewrites:
The breakthrough came when Green and McBride decided to disregard every Halloween sequel in order to create a direct continuation of the original.
Director David Gordon Green had this to say at Comic-Con:
Once we kind of had a concept of eliminating Halloween 2 and beyond, that’s when we went over to Carpenter’s house, which was a lovely picnic, and nervously presented our ideas to him. Through the course of that very suspicious conversation, [we] saw him go from cross-eyed to big smiles and then that gave us the confidence to move forward pretty quickly and then try to get Jamie Lee Curtis, [original star Nick Castle] and Carpenter himself to do the music. The next wave of ambition kicked in once we, as I like to say, we kissed the ring of the Godfather and he gave us the thumbs up.
FYI: Tomorrow marks 3 months exactly until Blumhouse’s Halloween hits US Theaters on October 19th (timed to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of John Carpenter’s original Halloween, released in 1978).
1. Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker Movie Gets the Perfect Release Date and Title:
Todd Phillips is directing the Joker Origin Movie and Joaquin Phoenix has indicated that they get along really well and trust each other. That is a very important part of filmmaking.
Did you know, Joaquin Phoenix recently revealed that taking on the Joker Origin Movie was an idea that initially scared him? That is why he was drawn to partly taking on the project. It appears he like to face his fears dead on.
The Joker Origin Movie was rumored to simply be titled Joker, which has now been confirmed. In addition, the movie will hit theaters on October 4th, 2019. This means that the rumors of production starting this fall are more than likely true as well.
