Fresh Skyline Terror Hottie News

(Kate Mara)

Remember when I was telling you about that movie Skyline, in which a bunch of friends are on the run from flashlights from space that some people off the face of the earth and take them up into places unknown?? Well, as it turns out, we got a fresh bit of news for you today about one of the newest cast members.

You already know that Kate Mara and Crystal Reed are involved in this, and under normal circumstances, that would be terror hottie enough for any movie– but not for Skyline.

No sir, they’ve added another name to the list, and it’s none other than Brittany Daniel, whom you’ll remember from Broken Lizard’s slasher romp Club Dread and original After Dark Horrorfest dog The Hamiltons.

So now we have just a little more reason to catch this sucker when it comes out, though we have no idea just when that is just yet, as the movie is still casting.

Kate Mara Terror Hottie of Choice Behind Skyline

(Kate Mara)

Skyline sounds like a strange name for a movie, no mistake, but considering that Kate Mara is involved in it, it really doesn’t matter how strange the title is.

Brought to us by the Strause brothers, who brought us Aliens Vs. Predator: Requiem, Skyline recently started production and is the story of a late night party taht went on a bit too long.  After some of the partygoers succumbed to sheer exhaustion, they’re woken up by a strange light shining in through the window.  Upon investigation, they find out that the “light” they were seeing is actually  some kind of abduction mechanism, lifting those it comes in contact with high off the ground and into locations unknown.  Can our partygoers save humanity?

Admittedly, it sounds pretty interesting, and the Strause brothers haven’t done all that badly in the past.  Admittedly, Requiem was better than its predecessor, if not by much.  We’ll have a wait, though, as it only just started.

Cool Off on the Transsiberian

Okay terror hottie buffs–how about something a little high-brow, packed with terror hotties and guaranteed to cool you off in the depths of late summer? Oh yeah, it’s a recipe for greatness, and it’s called “Transsiberian”.

Featuring Emily Mortimer and Kate Mara, along with Woody Harrelson and Ben Kingsley, it’s all about two couples on their way from China to Moscow via the legendary Trans-Siberian railroad. The trip, of course, turns deadly, and the couples soon have more trouble than they can deal with as they’re also pursued by a Russian police officer.

Needless to say, I’m pretty excited about this. Putting Harrelson and Kingsley together is unique enough as it stands, but a thriller on the Trans-Siberian railroad in the depths of a hot summer? Man, throw me a Pepsi and a bucket of popcorn and I’m all over it! And of course, having a couple terror hotties around to warm things up can never hurt. Here’s looking forward to late summer 2008–gonna be a hot one!
