Daniel Goldhaber and Isa Mazzei’s tech-driven psychological thriller Cam was one of the smartest, most genuinely scary movies 2018 had to offer. The film, which premiered at the Fantasia International Film Festival last summer, follows an ambitious camgirl (the outstanding Madeline Brewer) who logs into her account one day only to discover that she’s been replaced by an exact replica of her very self.

Cam, a Blumhouse production, would later be acquired by Netflix following its debut and generate a hell of a lot of positive buzz from both critics and audiences alike, because what’s scarier than going online one day and realizing all your shit’s been hacked by some creepy ass doppelganger?

Anyway, with all that being said, I’m happy to report that both Goldhaber and Mazzei have just signed a deal with talent agency CAA and are already in development on their next project, which will reunite them with the fine folks over at Blumhouse for a second time, according to Deadline.

While details about the film are still relatively scarce, we do know that it will be another “female-driven horror thriller” that will focus on a serial killer, though it’s not really clear as to whether or not that serial killer is the protagonist or antagonist of the story.

“It’s also somewhat autobiographical,” Mazzei told The Daily Beast in an interview last year. “But in more of a symbolic way—obviously, I haven’t murdered anyone,” she reassuringly added.

Either way, it should be pretty interesting and I hope to see this next project from Goldhaber and Mazzei either in theaters or on streaming soon. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on any further developments regarding this lovely duo as they come across our desk.

M. Night Shyamalan and Universal Pictures seem to be getting along pretty nicely with each other as the studio announced yesterday that it will be continuing its relationship with the director and has dated his next two films from February 26, 2021 and February 17, 2023.

“M. Night Shyamalan continues to create exciting, highly original stories that keep global audiences on the edge of their seats,” said Universal Pictures president Peter Cramer. “There is no one like him: he is a master filmmaker working at the height of his powers, and we are honored that he has once again chosen Universal to be the home for his next two incredible projects.”

Shyamalan added, “There are wonderful studios out there, but Universal has made it a mandate to release original films. They are the best at finding an audience for new stories with unexpected tones. I believe original films are crucial to the longevity of the theatrical experience.”

While any and all details about these two films — with the exception of the release dates, of course — are being kept tightly under wraps for the time being, we can’t help but think Shyamalan will be pulling another Split-type secret sequel stunt and has something pretty exciting in store for us, though that’s just pure speculation on our part.

Matt Damon and Christian Bale attempt to pull off the impossible in this new ‘Ford v Ferrari’ trailer

Ford v Ferrari
20TH CENTURY FOX

Fresh off its stops at festivals like Telluride and Toronto, 20th Century Fox has released a brand new trailer for James Mangold’s Ford v Ferrari and it looks like this thing is shaping up to be one of hell a contender this awards season.

Ford v Ferrari tells “the remarkable true story of the visionary American car designer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and the fearless British-born driver Ken Miles (Christian Bale),” who, believe it or not, does not seem to have undergone any drastic transformations for his role here.

Together, the duo “battled corporate interference, the laws of physics, and their own personal demons to build a revolutionary race car for Ford Motor Company and take on the dominating race cars of Enzo Ferrari at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France in 1966.”

At press time, Ford v Ferrari boasts an impressive 88% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes based on 43 reviews, and something tells me that percentage isn’t going to change too much over the next couple of months. I mean, even the “negative” reviews aren’t even that negative!

Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Tracy Letts, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Remo Girone, and Ray McKinnon also star in Ford v Ferrari, which hits theaters on November 15.
