Paramount Pictures is ready to dive in with its long-gestating movie transfer of the global hit TV series Baywatch. It already set Seth Gordon to direct and Dwayne Johnson and Zac Efron to play the male leads. Now, they’ve set a short list of actresses who will test for the female lead. Here are the names I hear: Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas, Percy Jackson), Ashley Benson (Pretty Little Liars, Elvis & Nixon), Nina Dobrev (Vampire Diaries), Alexandra Shipp (Straight Outta Compton, X-Men Apocalypse), Shelley Hennig (Teen Wolf), Bianca Santos (The Duff) and Denyse Tontz (Big Time Rush).

Now, it’s possible they will expand the search, and it’s also possible some of these young actresses will play other roles in the film, but we’ll know soon as they lock in for an early 2016 production start.

In the film, a hotshot former Olympian butts heads with the leader of an elite team of lifeguards. Damian Shannon & Mark Swift wrote the latest draft. Beau Flynn and Ivan Reitman are producing. Johnson’s Seven Bucks Productions will also produce in some capacity.


Blu-Ray screencaptures from Unfriended have been added to the gallery. The movie was released on DVD on August and it stars Shelley, Moses Storm, Heather Sossaman and William Peltz

I have updated the gallery with all missing pictures from Summer of 8, previously known as Still Life. Those pictures include not only production stills, but also behind the scenes and the most recent poster released to promote the movie’s name change.

I hate Skype. I always thought the upside of a phone call and/or texting was the notion that I don’t have to see you whilst conversing. I can be in my pajamas or greedily eating a bowl of spaghetti or making a mocking gestures — and you’ll be none the wiser. Skype ruins all of that. Now I actually have to comb my hair. Also I’ve heard there may be some vengeful spirit haunting the site, knocking off people who did it (the spirit or the site) wrong. I’m not trying to hurt the app’s stock or cast aspersions on the technology. Just saying ghostly shenanigans happen — and maybe we should go back to only calling each other from hereon out. What’s that you say? One Missed Call… Is no technological device safe from the unwanted presence of some evil ghost/spirit/demon/Orwellian-government/mom? Oh well — maybe it’s best to not have any friends to begin with.

Based on a true story* (*according to me), Unfriended tells the age ol’ tale of a group of friends who play a practical joke on some poor girl, causing her to kill herself — in turn becoming a vengeful spirit that can infiltrate Skype (or whatever licensed knock-off the film could legally afford), wherein the pissed-off spirit offs her former tormentors in various grizzly ways in payment for their mean joke. Because these are sensitive times. Bullying is wrong. At WonderCon 2015, Producer Jason Blum, writer Nelson Greaves and the entire cast (Shelley Hennig, Renee Olstead,Courtney Halverson, Jacob Wysocki, Will Peltz & Moses Jacob Storm) were on hand to promote Blumhouse’s latest horror flick. Below are highlights from the panel.

Beware that this article contains spoilers on the movie!

Computers and cell phones are basically an additional appendage yet very few movies manage to incorporate tweeting, texting, Skyping, etc. in a way that feels natural. However, Levan Gabriadze nails it in Unfriended.

The official trailer for Shelley’s movie Unfriended has been finally released! The movie is set to come out in April. For more news about the movie, you can always follow it on twitter or check out their facebook page!

Universal recently acquired Blumhouse’s horror film Cybernatural, in which a malevolent force haunts six high school friends during a Skype session that turns deadly when the unseen presence forces its victims to commit gruesome, self-inflicted acts of violence in front of the computer camera. It’s now been announced that Universal has re-named Cybernatural and moved its release date just a bit.

According to Box Office Mojo, Cybernatural is now called Unfriended, giving it a Facebook-related title that ties in with its modern technology tale. Originally scheduled to come out on April 10th of next year, Unfriended will now be released one week later on April 17th, 2015.

“While video chatting one night, six high school friends receive a Skype message from a classmate who killed herself exactly one year ago. At first they think it’s a prank, but when the girl starts revealing the friends’ darkest secrets, they realize they are dealing with something out of this world, something that wants them dead.”

Directed by Levan Gabriadze off a screenplay by Nelson Greaves and produced by Timur Bekmambetov (Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter), Unfriended stars Shelley Hennig, Renee Olstead, Will Peltz, Courtney Halverson, Matthew Bohrer, Heather Sossaman, and Jacob Wysocki. Gabriadze and Greaves also produce alongside Bekmambetov and Blumhouse’s Jason Blum.
