According to Summit production chief Erik Feig, Michael Brandt was the choice to go with because he outfits larger interest in supporting new talent. Brandt is in the processes of rewriting the screenplay along with Derek Hass, whom both were involved in the films 3:10 to Yuma and 2 Fast 2 Furious, and they also wrote the screenplay to the upcoming adaption Wanted from Universal.

    Death Trip revolves around a group of astronauts who land on a planet only to find a crashed spaceship and corpses that frighteningly resemble their own. They then must piece together where they are and whether they might in fact already be dead.

   It has been announced that Justin Long (Mac vs. PC commercials) will join the cast of director Sam Raimi’s ‘Drag Me To Hell’. Long will play the boyfriend of Alison Lohman, who in the film is the unknowing recipient to a supernatural curse. You have to wonder how serious we’ll have to take Justin Long in a horror film, and if he’s a comic relief we’re screwed since he’s not very funny. This movie seems to be losing potential every time something is announced. ‘Drag Me To Hell’ is Raimi’s return to the horror genre, and is said to be similar to the ‘Evil Dead’ franchise. Filming is set to begin March 31st.
