Associate Shia LaBeouf with the ruining of bot Indiana Jones and Transformers? Think he’s some kind of mediocre actor demon spawn? His new movie Horns could be the crutons on your hate salad.

Based on the best-selling book of the same name by Joe Hill, Horns is about a dude named Ig Perrish - whose birth certificate probably got smudged or something – who wakes up from a night of heavy drinking with a pair of horns growing from his head. (I’ve had worse hangovers.) Now he has to solve the mystery of the horns… oh, and also figure out who killed his girlfriend. Sounds like this could be a USA series too. “He’s horny for mysteries.”

LaBeouf will star as Ig, Keith Bunin (“In Treatment”) is writing the adaptation for Mandalay Pictures. Fun fact: Hill is the son of Stephen King. For reals – if I’m lying, may I grow horns on my head, or something retarded like that. (Variety)

Movie studios aren’t even trying to not rip off Twilight anymore. There’s “Teen Wolf” and Red Riding Hood and probably loads more that I’ve blocked out of my subconscious. Of course, copying the vampire or werewolf angle wouldn’t work, would it? Which supernatural being could be subbed in…. dragons? Yep. Dragons.

Mandalay has hired Aquamarine screenwriter Nick Pustay to adapt the creatively-titled Firelight for the big screen. Described as Twilight with dragons (you don’t say!), Firelight tells the story of a young girl dragon who can morph into human form. She was destined to marry another dragon but her mom moved the family away to protect them. Now a teenager, she’s fallen in love with a human boy who happens to belong to a family of secret dragon hunters.

The only upside to this is that the fat teenagers are going to start dressing up like lizards and sunning themselves on the rocks behind Hot Topic. (THR)
