Vocal Cameos A-Plenty in "Diary of the Dead"

George A. Romero's new zombie film Diary of the Dead will contain cameos by several recognizable names, but don't look for familiar faces. According to a feature in USA Today, Stephen King, Quentin Tarantino, Simon Pegg, Wes Craven, and Guillermo del Toro will all lend their voices to Diary. Given Romero's focus on media in Diary ("I thought it would be cool to go back to Day 1, when it all starts, and lay media stuff on top," Romero told USA Today), my guess is that we'll be hearing these voices from televisions and radios.

Diary of the Dead makes its world premiere Saturday as part of the Midnight Madness program at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film has no United States distributor yet, but we expect that to change after the premiere.

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...)
