‘RE 5’ makeup effects fool paramedics
One thing’s for sure: Even though “Resident Evil 5” is probably going to suck, its makeup effects sure as hell won’t. Just ask Toronto emergency responders.
Sixteen actors were injured on the set of the latest entry in the long-running zombie franchise when a platform collapsed, sending cast members plummeting as much as 20 feet to the ground.
When emergency personnel arrived on the scene they were faced with an army of blood-soaked, limping ghouls, most of whom were missing at least a limb or two.
Emergency medical spokesman Peter Macintyre said the costumes made it harder for crews to tell just how bad the injuries were.
Once the real wounds were sorted out from the fake ones, medics treated the actors for minor leg and back injuries.
Super best friends on set of ‘Expendables 2’
Ok well, they’re not the real Super Best Friends (Jesus, Moses, Mohammad, Seaman, ect.), but rather the action movie variety: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and Sly Stallone.
Arnie tweeted this pic of the three pals from the set of “The Expendables 2,” which is currently shooting in Bulgaria.
Here’s hoping we get a little more of the big three in the sequel, rather than just the short pissing contest we got in the first one.
What the world needs now is love sweet love… and zombies
Word on the streets is Zack Snyder is looking to return to the zombie subgenre he helped revive with the “Dawn of the Dead” remake and is bringing Matthijs van Heijningen Jr. (director, “The Thing” remake) with him.
The dynamic remake duo is hard at work on a semi-original idea called “Army of the Dead.”
I say semi, because from the sound of it, it’s basically “Escape from NY,” with zombies.
From Bad Movie Nite: Las Vegas is overrun by zombies, causing the government to build a wall around it, effectively quarantining the whole city. Then a helicopter crashes behind the walls, presumably trapping a group of humans within.
Of course, the last time Snyder worked with zombies; he took a page from “28 Days Later” and turned them from slow, ambling monsters into Olympic sprinters.
Not content to leave well enough alone, Snyder has once again elected to make some changes to undead lure.
This time the zombies are looking for some human lovin’. That’s right, Snyder and company’s new take on zombies will feature dude zombies raping human ladies. Said ladies will then give birth to some sort of hybrid creature.
Umm… ewww. The movie is still in the early stages (it’s not even on Imdb yet) so let’s hope cooler heads prevail and this idea gets dropped before going into production.
