Well, it has just been announced that Romero has been granted access to reshoot the scenes, and indeed will begin filming them few very soon. Universal, the company responsible for releasing Land, has said that they are extremely pleased with how the film is looking so far, and have decided to grant Romero his reshoot wish in an effort to make the film look "even better".

Tarantino Not Attached to "Friday the 13th" Sequel

t is quite a rare occurrence for me to actually become pissed--and I mean pissed as in slamming my fist on the computer desk and growling in anger--as a result of reading some recent movie news, but Quentin Tarantino has made the inner, ultra-obsessive nerd in me very, very angry, and me no like. You see, recently I reported on Quentin Tarantino's possible involvement with a new Friday the 13th film. The rumor was, as they say, a fanboy's wet dream, but about two days after first reporting the glorious rumor, my hopes for a fresh, new, and truly unique entry into the Friday the 13th series were squelched like a puny human under Kong's foot, as Empire Online asked Tarantino himself whether or not his involvement with Friday was true…and the answer sucked. Here's what Quentin said:(read more...)
