In an interview with Film Riot (via Heroic Hollywood), director David F. Sandberg confirmed the script for the movie is complete, indicating it won’t be too long now until production starts. According to earlier reports, filming should begin sometime early next year for a potential 2019 release.
The house was in a residential area in Alcanor, about 120 miles south of Barcelona. Officials say the explosion was caused by butane gas, of which around 20 bottles were found in the wreckage — far more gas than what a normal house could use.
Circumstances around this explosion have not yet been confirmed, but experts are currently speculating based on the amount of gas that this was part of a larger bomb attack plan, and that it may have gone wrong.

The apparent terrorist attack in Barcelona underlines three harsh lessons learned by security services – and the general public – over recent months and years.
The first is that the use of vehicles as weapons is now an established tactic by extremists, one of the dozen or so employed in the last two decades that should be considered a standard part of the terrorist arsenal. In the last 13 months there have been similar attacks in France, Germany, Sweden and the UK.

MTV will be reviving its popular Unplugged franchise this fall. Shawn Mendes will be the first artist to appear on the reboot, which will air on September 8th.
MTV Unplugged first premiered in 1989 and featured a host of classic episodes with artists, including Nirvana, Jay-Z, Adele, Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton, Mariah Carey and Katy Perry doing acoustic versions of their own songs alongside covers. While never a weekly show, Unplugged occurred semi-regularly for two decades, halting in 2009. Previously, the channel had plotted for the revival to launch last year.
“At MTV, the brand equity is still so strong. It gives an opportunity to bring back nostalgia and also recruit an entirely new consumer who may not know what Unplugged was because they weren’t born,” MTV’s SVP of Music and Executive in Charge of Music for Unplugged, Armani Duncan, told Variety.
Mendes’ episode will be filmed in Los Angeles’ Theater at Ace Hotel. The 19-year-old found himself drawn to the franchise after watching a clip of Pearl Jam’s 1992 episode. “It wasn’t so much about the commercial, showman side of it; it was really about the music,” he told Variety.
In late July, MTV also announced that it would bring back another nostalgic franchise: Total Request Live. The popular video countdown series that was most famously hosted by Carson Daly in the early 2000s will return on October 2nd, nearly a decade after the show wrapped up. It will feature five rotating hosts and broadcast from a brand new Times Square studio, the same location of the original incarnation.
