A new trailer has been released for the new film “Blast Beat,” which is set to be released on May 21. The movie, which stars Mateo Arias, Moises Arias, Daniel Dae Kim, Wilmer Valderama, Diane Guerrero etc., was directed by Esteban Arango and it is being described as a “metal-fueled coming-of-age story.” Here’s a synopsis:
“When a family leaves their native Colombia for the United States in the summer of ‘99, a metalhead science prodigy and his aimless younger brother struggle to align the American Dream with their new reality.”
Netflix and STXfilms have teamed up to develop and produce a new biopic focusing on late Ramones frontman Joey Ramone. The film is called “I Slept With Joey Ramone” and it will be based on the book of the same name, which was written by the musician’s brother Mickey Leigh. The movie is set to be directed by Jason Orley and it will star Pete Davidson (“Saturday Night Live”).
Adam Fogelson, chairman of STXfilms, commented:
“When you share a bed with someone — and not just a bed, but a childhood, a family, and a lifetime — you know that person better than anybody else. Mickey Leigh not only collaborated with his big brother’s band — he has irreplaceable memories of and insights into Joey Ramone, having supported him when no one else would and witnessed him overcome adversity in the most dramatic way.”
He also added:
“‘I Slept With Joey Ramone’ is a great rock anthem that will make an equally great rock biopic, set apart by a universal story of family.
Pete is perfect for this role and we’re excited he and Jason will be bringing this icon of rock to life and thrilled to be collaborating once again with our friends at Netflix.”
The film is being made in cooperation with Joey Ramone’s estate and Leigh will serve as an executive producer. Release details are still pending.
Sevendust’s Lajon Witherspoon and members of his family appear in a new movie called “Manipulated.” That film was directed by Witherspoon‘s friend Matt Berman and it stars Kelly Perine, Chase Masterson, Traci Lords, and more. A teaser trailer for the movie can be found HERE and a description from Berman can be read below:
“‘Manipulated‘ is a taut Drama, Mystery, Whodunnit with an ensemble cast. Diane Conrad, district attorney, is under extreme pressure to resolve a case that has politicians as well as the local community on edge. The clock is ticking and the stakes and emotions are running high. Can anyone trust what they see or hear? Why is Detective Scott Keating taking the biggest gamble of his career ? With evidence in short supply, and the personal and professional lives of all concerned unraveling, can you believe anything anyone says? It’s game on.”
Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) has confirmed that his new film “Zombie Versus Ninja” will begin shooting this year. As previously reported, the movie is one of five that the frontman recently wrote.
Taylor told Frightmare HQ the following::
“One of the things that I’ve always wanted to do is create a movie — write a movie and then see it from soup to nuts; from pre-pro to walking the red carpet. That’s been one of my biggest dreams. And I’ve had the opportunity to really be put in touch with some great producers. And I’m talking to potential directors right now, actually. It is going to shoot this year.”
He continued when asked if would be interested in directing the film himself:
“It’s not that I’m not interested; it’s that I know that’s not my forte. I’m honest enough with myself to realize that if I had wanted to be a director, I would have started learning a long time ago. And I know a lot of people with the kind of ego that they would step in and go, ‘Well, it’s mine. Blah blah blah.’ I’m not that guy. I want it to be good. I want [people] to enjoy what I’m making, because I wanna enjoy it too. And sometimes it’s the collaboration that creates something amazing.”
“You have to be flexible enough to realize, like, ‘I don’t have the chops to do this.’ However, that doesn’t mean there’s somebody out there that does. So, for me, as the writer and the producer, now I can find the right person to bring it to fruition and walk with them every step of the way as a collab. Let them do their thing, but also know that, in my mind, there’s this idea of what I want it to be. And it’s a gonzo horror comedy — it’s the kind of fucking movie that I’ve always loved, and it’s the kind of movie that I’ve always wanted to make. And if it goes off, man, it’s the beginning of something rad.”
“I don’t wanna make Oscar winners. I wanna make fun, crazy cult classics. That’s all I care about.”
Lizzy Borden has made his feature film acting debut in the new film “Die Influencers Die.” The movie, which is described as “a blood-splattering, heavy metal-fueled, social media spoofing, feature-length horror film,” is now streaming on Amazon Prime. With this news, Borden has also premiered a new soundtrack video for his song “My Midnight Things.” You can check that out below. Borden commented:
“I had a blast on the set of this twisted little movie. I grew up on low budget splatter flicks from the ’60s, ’70s and ’80s, and ‘Die Influencers Die’ had that feel. My character has no name, and he seemingly comes out of nowhere, and that made playing him so much fun. I just held on and let him spit his venom.”
