As for Ghosts, Lionsgate has set the Kevin Greutert-directed horror flick for January 10, 2014. The project used to go by the name Jessabelle, though even the new title is only tentative. According to STYD, the movie is about a young woman who returns home to her her "father’s ruined Louisiana mansion" to recover after the death of her fiancee. While there. however, she discovers a mysterious gift from her dead mother...and a spirit that wants her dead. As we get further and further into 2013 we'll start getting more and more answers to our movie-related questions, but one big one that remains floating in the air is the identity of Benedict Cumberbatch's character in J.J. Abrams' Star Trek Into Darkness. While he has been "identified" as a man named John Harrison, it's widely believed that name is simply a moniker hiding his true identity. We've already heard more than enough speculation, with fans tossing around names like Khan and Gary Mitchell, but today brings a new theory to the table.

Warning: Potential Spoilers Ahead. Tread Carefully! IDW has published the first issue of the Star Trek Into Darkness comic series that will lead into the new movie, and Bleeding Cool is theorizing that the final splash page could be a hint at the film's villain: For those who can't read the text, that's Robert April, who, in Trek lore, was the Enterprise's first captain.Arguably, this doesn't seem like much - it could just be the writers wanting to include a character that fans know who could add to the story they are telling in the comics. But what makes it interesting is some evidence that HitFix picked up on late last year. While on a tour of the Bad Robot headquarters (the same trip that I was on) the site discovered some production art featuring the giant gun held by Cumberbatch's character in the trailer. And the drawing was labeled "April's Gatling Gun."

As for the character's older appearance, Bleeding Cool explains that away by saying a) that "David Messina’s art is interpretive, not photo realistic," and that b) the character's original appearance on the Star Trek animated series featured a plot about characters aging backwards. There's also the fact that this is Star Trek, meaning that cloning and/or strange medical procedures aren't off the table. One detail not covered by the speculation is how Robert April fits into the timeline created by the 2009 reboot. In that film we see both Pike and Kirk as Captain of the Enterprise, but considering we also see the Enterprise being built it's hard to figure out when April would have his time at the helm. It's possible that it was during the three year time period when Kirk was being trained at Star Fleet, and it's possible that he's talking about a different ship called Enterprise. Presumably the question will be answered in the second issue of the comic.

Do you think it's possible that Cumberbatch will be playing Robert April in Star Trek Into Darkness? Leave your thoughts, concerns, queries and ideas in the comments section below. Update:: The Facebook page Star Trek Logs has pointed out that another possibility is that Robert April will be played by Peter Weller, who we also haven't really heard anything about yet. Do you think he looks like the drawing? George Tillman Jr.’s The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete has been generating a steady stream of buzz out of Sundance press and industry screenings ahead of its January 25th premiere. The cast sounds terrific – boasting performances by Anthony Mackie, Jeffrey Wright and American Idol alums Jordin Sparks and Jennifer Hudson – and Michael Starrbury’s screenplay has received favorable nods. In fact, Starrbury’s work on Mister and Pete reportedly landed him his next gig.

The screenwriter has been hired by Morgan Creek Productions to polish their Tupac Shakur biopic, which has been in development since 2011, according to Deadline. The original treatment is credited to the trio of Steve Bagatourian, Stephen Rivele and Christopher Wilkinson. Could Starrbury’s introduction to the material be a step toward securing Tillman Jr. as the director of the Tupac picture? He helmed a compelling Biggie Smalls film in Notorious. Hiring the director to further investigate the east-coast/west-coast rivalry that led to Tupac and Biggie’s deaths would only make sense. And we haven’t heard any news about a possible director for the Shakur film since John Singleton’s name was attached … and if you saw Abduction, you know that you don’t want him directing anything.
We’ll see if Starrbury and Tillman Jr. find a way to work together on the Tupac story. For now, he’ll next be showcased in the action comedy The Great Unknown, which he is adapting for New Line and director Jorma Taccone (MacGruber). Horror auteur James Wan will bring terror to theaters twice this summer. The true story-based The Conjuring will open on July 19th, followed by the haunted house flick Insidious Chapter 2 on August 30th. Though the cameras have only just started to roll on the latter, Wan is already casting for his a new venture, a thriller that IMDb has listed as House of Horror (though that could be a tentative title). Variety reports Wan came up with the premise and will produce the film penned by Max La Bella; Will Canon, helmer of the 2010 crime-thriller Brotherhood, is set to direct. The Dimension Films production will star Maria Bello and Frank Grillo as a psychologist and a policeman, respectively, who team up to interrogate the sole survivor of a ghost-hunting expedition that ended with five people dead. Bello has appeared in a wide range of films, from the dark comedy Thank You For Smoking to the daring drama A History of Violence, and the spirited rom-com The Jane Austen Book Club. However, the James Wan-produced horror film will mark only her third role in the genre, following Secret Window and the lesser-known The Dark. For his part, Grillo, who recently appeared in the Liam Neeson vehicle The Grey and alongside Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena in End of Watch, has appeared in three horror movies to date: the Myspace-centered iMurders, the 2010 Mother's Day remake, and the Wes Craven pic My Soul to Take.
