David Hackl

John Travolta in Killing Season

There are plenty of films about a variety of dangerous career paths. Firefighters, police officers, paramedics, that one where Ashton Kutcher is a Coast Guard, all branches of the military, construction crews, vigilante superheroes, lifeguards, pilots and conductors, detectives and inspectors, astronauts — they’ve all had their due. But one sector of selfless, high-impact human service has largely been ignored by the film industry: linemen. It doesn’t matter what kind, be it those who lay railroad tracks or those who install and repair electrical, telephone or telegraph wires. They’ve gotten the short end of the stick. With the last film to commemorate their work premiering in 1937 (Slim the Lineman, which starred Henry Fonda), it’s now up to John Travolta and a merry band of brethren that includes Kate Bosworth and Devon Sawa to right this wrongs with Life On The Line. The indie drama, directed by David Hackl (Grizzly) and written by the team of Peter Horton, Primo Brown and Dylan Scott, will follow a crew of “eccentric” electric linemen as they fight the elements and presumably each other.



Back up from the mat and ready to fight again, Saw VI redeems the franchise and puts Jigsaw back on the map for horror fans.



Absolute shocker of the day, deals are in place and Saw VII is greenlit. In other shocking news, bears shit in the woods.


Just got a little ditty from our friends over at Lionsgate regarding the soon to be in production fifth installment of the Saw series. Actress Meagan Good, who has recently been seen in One Missed Call, Stomp the Yard and Waist Deep, will join the supporting cast.


You have to love the Saw movies, if not for their ridiculously ambiguous nature. In a release from Lionsgate announcing that “Dexter” and Rambo hottie Julie Benz will star in the upcoming fifth installment, her character was described only as “an elegant woman”.
