The first trailer, poster and synopsis for The Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia have popped up online today. While the title is a mouthful, it’s meant to convey the original documentary source material that delved into two separate hauntings in each of the respective states. As bad as the title is, the trailer is actually pretty decent. There’s no found footage to be seen and it looks like a good old fashioned ghost story with some social commentary thrown in for good measure.

Directed by Tom ElkinsThe Haunting in Connecticut 2: Ghosts of Georgia stars Katee Sackhoff, Chad Michael Murray and Abigail Spencer. Look for it in limited theatrical release and on VOD starting February 1, 2013. Hit the jump for the trailer, poster and synopsis.

Known as the Acting Outlaws, actresses Katee Sackhoff and Tricia Helfer (who both worked on Battlestar Galactica together) participate in a variety of charity events, in an effort to raise money and awareness for causes they feel strongly about.  With a merchandise store (at www.ActingOutlaws.org) that includes various t-shirts and a documentary of the motorcycle ride they took from Los Angeles to Louisiana, they now have a 2013 calendar that features 12 months of exclusive photos of the women in classy and provocative poses.

During this recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, Katee Sackhoff talked about how the Acting Outlaws came about, what made them decide to do their first-ever calendar, where her interest in and love for motorcycles started, and more.  She also talked about returning to her A&E drama series Longmire for Season 2, which starts shooting again in the middle of March, her experience making the next Riddick film with Vin Diesel, for which she had a nude scene that she needed to get her father’s permission for first, that she’s seen bits and pieces of the film while recording ADR and said that it’s bloody but that the R rating is definitely more for the language, how she’s attached to do the all-female Expendables movie with Gina Carano and that she’s excited about all of the women that they’re talking to for roles in it, and what it was like to work with Karen Gillan (Doctor Who) on the horror film Oculus.  Check out what she had to say after the jump.

Kirsten Smith-Karen McCullah Lutz-expendabelles-richard-wenk-masters-of-the-universe-slice

It looks like the all-female version of The Expendables (the one produced by Adi Shankar and written by Dutch Southern) now has some competition:  Millenium Films’ The ExpendaBelles, an action picture which recently landed a pair of scribes.  Kirsten Smith and Karen McCullah Lutz of Legally Blonde will pen the script for the mercenary movie.  The writing duo is responsible for past films like 10 Things I Hate About You, She’s the Man and The House Bunny, so we’ll see if they can up the action in their interpretation. As Deadline reports, The ExpendaBelles should be the first film in an expected franchise.  The other as-of-yet untitled all-female version of The Expendables currently has ass-kickers Gina Carano (Haywire) and Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) on board.  Are there enough action heroines to go around for two of these films?

In related actioner news, Richard Wenk, who co-wrote the screenplay for The Expendables 2, has been tapped to re-write the Masters of the Universe treatment.  Hit the jump for more on that story. 

Katee Sackhoff Fights Alongside Gina Carano in Female EXPENDABLES

by     Posted 2 years, 76 days ago


Action veteran Katee Sackhoff will put her Battlestar Galactica skills to the test alongside Gina Carano in the all-female version of The Expendables.  We previously posted Carano’s attachment to the Adi Shankar production and the news about Sackhoff comes as a welcome addition for sci-fi fans.  We’ve yet to see a veteran action heroine added to the cast (ie Sigourney Weaver, Linda Hamilton, etc), but the picture is building a solid young core of experienced action stars to carry what will hopefully be a successful franchise.  Hit the jump for more on Sackhoff’s addition and the reaction from Shankar.

First Look at Katee Sackhoff in New Images from RIDDICK

by     Posted 2 years, 279 days ago


Vin Diesel has unveiled a few more images from the currently-in-production Riddick, giving us our first look at Katee Sackhoff and a gnarly looking creature. Diesel mentioned in the posting of the image that Sackoff wrapped shooting on the film early this morning. She plays a mercenary named Dahl, but she’s doing her best Starbuck impression from Battlestar Galactica in this new image. Granted, both projects are in the sci-fi realm so we were probably already thinking about her Battlestar Galactica character anyway, but the wardrobe here is very similar. The third installment of the series that began with Pitch Black was followed by 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick finds our antihero left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that’s infested with alien predators. Riddick activates an emergency beacon that alerts mercenaries to come collect their bounty

Katee Sackhoff Talks RIDDICK; Reveals the Wild Story on How She Got Cast

by     Posted 2 years, 342 days ago


Earlier today, at the TCA Winter Press Tour, Collider got the opportunity to sit down with actress Katee Sackhoff for an exclusive interview. While she was there to promote her new A&E western crime drama Longmire, which debuts this summer, we did also get the chance to ask her about the role she recently signed on to play in the upcoming Riddick sequel with Vin Diesel, that is being directed by David Twohy.

Sackhoff talked about having grown up watching science fiction and action, what a huge fan she is of the first two movies, how excited she is “to go blow some shit up,” her crazy (and I mean crazy!) audition story, and how she’s already packed on nine pounds of muscle in training, in an attempt to compete with her co-star. Check out what she had to say after the jump.

Katee Sackhoff and Jordi Molla Hunt Down Vin Diesel in RIDDICK

by     Posted 2 years, 346 days ago


While you probably know her as Starbuck from Battlestar Galactica, Katee Sackhoff will soon have a new sci-fi franchise to add to her repertoire. We previously reported that Sackhoff was being considered for a role opposite Vin Diesel in the upcoming sci-fi flick, Riddick. It now looks as if she’s a lock as Sackhoff is reported to be in final negotiations for the role. She’ll be playing Dahl, a Nordic mercenary tasked with tracking down the titular anti-hero. Also playing the mercenary game is Jordi Molla (Blow) who will play Santana,  a leader of an eight-man crew bent on killing Riddick. Things are not looking up for our favorite Furyan.

The third installment of the franchise that started with Pitch Black and staggered with The Chronicles of Riddick was once again written and directed by David Twohy; it also stars Karl Urban reprising his role as Lord Vaako. Hit the jump for more on Riddick.

Katee Sackhoff, Bokeem Woodbine, and More Offered Roles in RIDDICK

by     Posted 3 years, 51 days ago


With pre-production well underway, David Twohy’s Riddick is now starting to put together its supporting cast.  We previously reported that Karl Urban would be returning to the franchise to star alongside Vin Diesel, and now Bloody-Disgusting has some new casting details to report.  According to BD, offers are out to voice Andreas Apergis (Durham County) Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica) Bokeem Woodbine (The Rock) and WWE wrestler Dave Bautista (The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption).  If Apergis signs on, he’ll play play “Krone”, commander of the dark theocracy, while Sackhoff would pay “Dahl”, a Nordic merc tracking Riddick.  I’m definitely up on the idea of Sackhoff playing a merc, and hopefully Woodbine will top his shocked-death face from The Rock.
