Jessica Morris Talks Upcoming Thriller ‘Chase’

Published

on

A few weeks back we talked about a new thriller on the way from director Michael Matteo Rossi called ‘Chase’, and we had a chance to sit down with one of the film’s stars to talk about the movie, along with what is in store for fans when the film finally drops.

The film is slated to arrive sometime in 2019 and will follow the journey as, “A hitman must prove his loyalty to his mentor and best friend, while his girlfriend wants to leave the business behind them.”

“Michael [Rossi] sent me the script and after I read it I said to myself, “I have to play Blair”! I knew that I would have to audition and win the role” Morris told me regarding her first reaction to reading the script for Chase.

“But as I read it, I felt so emotionally connected to her and just felt that I needed to become this character. The script was very dynamic and the characters are interesting and multi faceted. I’m so happy that it worked out for me to be a part of it.”

Described as a thriller and crime horror story, Morris immediately felt a connection to the character Blair.

“I relate to her in the way that she loves so fiercely” Morris said.

“I understand loving and accepting someone fully, even someone who is seriously flawed or may seem unworthy of that type of devotion. She blindly loves and chooses to ignore certain things. I’m different from her in that I think she may be slightly tougher than me. Don’t get me wrong, I feel that I am an incredible strong woman in my own right, but I probably wouldn’t put myself in the line of fire as much as she does.”

Morris believes that fans will be in for an adrenaline rush of entertainment when the film finally arrives.

“Fans can expect a great deal of thrilling action, a lot of heart and some really cool, edgy lighting and cinematography, from what I have seen so far.”

Morris has been in her fair share of thrillers and horror movies, and although horror isn’t her first choice, she has grown an appreciation for the genre over time.

“I have acted in many horror and thriller films but they are not my go-to genre for entertainment” Morris admitted. “I am someone who has always had terrible nightmares and is afraid of the dark, even as an adult. But I have grown fonder of them. The Shining is one of my all time favorites.”

Blumhouse has dropped a trailer for Universal Pictures’ ‘Ma’ starring Oscar winner Octavia Spencer.

An Australian trailer was released that gave fans a look at the strange film set to arrive on May 31st.

According to the synopsis:

“Everybody’s welcome at Ma’s. But good luck getting home safe. Oscar® winner Octavia Spencer stars as Sue Ann, a loner who keeps to herself in her quiet Ohio town. One day, she is asked by Maggie, a new teenager in town (Diana Silvers, Glass), to buy some booze for her and her friends, and Sue Ann sees the chance to make some unsuspecting, if younger, friends of her own.

She offers the kids the chance to avoid drinking and driving by hanging out in the basement of her home. But there are some house rules: One of the kids has to stay sober. Don’t curse. Never go upstairs. And call her “Ma.” But as Ma’s hospitality starts to curdle into obsession, what began as a teenage dream turns into a terrorizing nightmare, and Ma’s place goes from the best place in town to the worst place on earth.

Ma also stars Juliette Lewis (August: Osage County) as Maggie’s mom, Luke Evans (Beauty and the Beast) as a local dad, Missi Pyle (Gone Girl) as his girlfriend, and McKaley Miller (TV’s Hart of Dixie), Corey Fogelmanis (TV’s Girl Meets World), Gianni Paolo (TV’s Power) and Dante Brown (Lethal Weapon TV series) as Maggie’s friends.

From Tate Taylor, the acclaimed director of The Help and Get On Up, and blockbuster producer Jason Blum (Get Out, Halloween, The Purge series) comes a thriller anchored by a daring and unexpected performance from Spencer, one of the most powerful actors of her generation.

Ma is written by Scotty Landes (Comedy Central’s Workaholics) and Taylor, is produced by Blum for his Blumhouse Productions, by Taylor, and by John Norris (executive producer, Get On Up), and is executive produced by Spencer, Couper Samuelson, Jeanette Volturno, and Robin Fisichella.”

‘Hell Fest’ Writer Akela Cooper Writing Sequel to ‘The Nun’

Published

on

Although it was the highest grossing film in the Conjuring franchise, ‘The Nune’, which dropped last October, was absolutely horrible, in my opinion, and my review reflected those views.

Despite all of the hype and build, the film just fell short.

However, due to it’s box office success, a sequel is in the works, and a new writer is at the helm.

According to Deadline, Akela Cooper, who is known for her work on “Luke Cage,” “Grimm,” “American Horror Story,” and”Hell Fest”, will pen the script for the sequel.

Producer Peter Safran , who will return alongside James Wan to produce the sequel, teased something interesting in regards to a sequel.

“We have a really fun storyline for that teed up, so I think that’s the next one that will be written” Safran said, according to Entertainment Weekly.
