by     Posted 1 year, 323 days ago


When last we reported on the development of the Vampire Academy adaptations, we were only half-way through the Twilight Saga.  Now, it looks like the first of six possible films is set up with stars Zoey Deutch (Beautiful Creatures) and Lucy Fry (Lightning Point) playing the leads of Rose and Lissa with Mark Waters (Mean Girls) directing from a Daniel Waters (Heathers) script.  Based on the best-selling young adult book series by Richelle Mead, Vampire Academy centers on half-human Dhampir bodyguards and their vampire charges who both train at St. Vladimir’s Academy.  The film treatment will also get the catchy new title of Vampire Academy: Blood Sisters in preparation for an ongoing franchise of adaptations.  Hit the jump for more.

You’ve gone and done it again, Hollywood! Oh, you! News came out last night announcing that Fox plans to remake the 1989 cult classic dark comedy, “Heathers” for TV. The remake will be written by Mark Rizzo, whose only previous credit includes writing a pilot for a series named “Zip” for NBC, which never got picked up.  He will also be assisted by “Sex and the City” writer, Jenny Bucks, who will produce the project.  It’s still unclear if this remake will be a TV movie or a TV series. What is clear though, at least to me, is that the film does not need to be remade. To begin to shake your head in disappointment as you find out some more details, hit the jump.
