Since then, a ‘60s-set biopic about Roger Corman and the ghost story “Ca...

    Brian De Palma To Direct Meta-Adaptation Of 'Therese Raquin' Starring Emily Mortimer

    No matter what you thought about Brian De Palma's "Passion," it can't be denied that it found the filmmaker firmly back in his wheelhouse of erotically charged melodrama. And it looks like he isn't going to veer too far away from that subject matter just yet, only this time, it will happen on a movi...

    Simon Pegg & Joe Dante Teaming Up For Ghost Story 'Casting The Runes'

    When people think of the name Joe Dante, most likely, they think of his work in the ‘80s. Whether it’s “Gremlins”, “Explorers,” “The ‘Burbs,” or maybe even one of his later ‘90s works, like “Small Soldiers.” His career has never really been the same since his heyday in the ‘80s; his most recent work...

    Review: Joe Dante Can't Quite Recapture His Earlier Magic With 'The Hole'

    Joe Dante Talks Making 'The Hole' & Updates Status On Future Films 'Monster Love,' 'Paris, I'll Kill You' & More

    It’s been awhile since we’ve seen a feature film by director Joe Dante, but he certainly hasn't been forgotten. The cult around his films from "Gremlins" to “Explorers” or even 1993’s criminally marginalized “Matinee” (featuring one of John Goodman’s best performances to date), continues to loom lar...
