**Summit Entertainment has picked up Revoc, a pitch from Olaf de Fleur that is a “post-alien invasion thriller.” We’ll keep an eye open to see whatever the heck that is.

**The YA scifi novel Unwind has been optioned for a flick by Constantin Film. Written by Neal Shusterman, it is yet another dystopian future book that takes place after an American civil war about abortion, where kids 13-17 can be harvested for organs if their parents want. The synopsis is filled with all sorts of book specific terms and I would probably never read it, but The Hunger Games made a lot of money, so prepare for dozens of dystopian futures!

That new Marlon Wayans found footage flick is called A Haunted House

Marlon Wayans

And A Haunted House just got picked up to come to a theater near you on January 11, 2013! We reported on it a while ago before it even had an official name. And now look at it. They grow up so fast ::sniff:: Remember, A Haunted House was going to be called Smart Ass at one time. That was a thing that almost happened. You be the judge on if we missed out on something cool…

As we said:

From the creators of Scary Movie comes another hilarious horror spoof, a parody of the Paranormal Activity franchise. When newlyweds Malcolm (Marlon Wayans) and Kisha (Essence Atkins) move into their dream house, they quickly find they’re not alone. But it’s not the house that’s haunted, but his wife that is possessed with spirits – or as Malcolm calls it – “relationship baggage.” Malcolm hires everyone from a priest to modern day ghostbusters to rid her of the demon, determined not to let the evil spirit ruin his marriage… or his sex life for that matter.” The pic will also spoof Paramount’s The Devil Inside.

Marlon Wayans cowrote it as well, and Michael Tiddes directs. At one point Cedric the Entertainer was listed on info about the flick, but I don’t see him anywhere any more. Hmmmm… David Koechner and Nick Swardson are listed as costars.
