Elysium's Neill Blomkamp Targeting Slumdog Millionaire Star Dev Patel For Sci-Fi Comedy Chappie



Writer/director Neill Blomkamp is still very much at the start of his career, his second effort, Elysium, not due out until August, but already he's shown that he works at a fairly deliberate pace. It's been nearly a full four years since the release of District 9 in 2009, and Blomkamp has spent that time tending to the details of Elysium and getting it through production and ready for theaters. It's entirely possible that we won't be able to see his third feature, Chappie, until 2017, matching the time gap, but at the very least Blomkamp is starting to put the pieces for it together now.

As we previously reported, the movie will once again unite Blomkamp with actor Sharlto Copley, who is set to play a police robot in the movie. THR says that should Patel sign on the dotted line he will be playing the film's "human lead, a young man in the impoverished town."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Dev Patel, best known for his starring roles in movies like Slumdog Millionaire and The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, is now in early talks to join the cast of Chappie, which has been described as a sci-fi comedy. Set to be both directed and co-written (with Terri Tatchell) by Blomkamp, the movie is based on a short film that the filmmaker made called Tetra Vaal. While it's unclear at this point how the idea will be stretched into a feature length story, the short was a fake commercial for a highly-advanced robot that could be used during police exercises in the slums of South Africa. You can watch the short below.

'Big Brother' Host Julie Chen on Racist Comments: 'It Stung'

Big Brother finally addressed some of its houseguests' derogatory statements in a recent episode, but host Julie Chen used CBS morning show The Talk to offer her take on the ongoing controversy.



"When I first heard found out that Aaryn [Gries], who is a 22-year-old girl, made anti-gay, anti-black and anti-Asian comments, I have to be honest, the Asian ones hit me the most. I heard about her describing Asians as 'squinty-eyed' and 'go make a bowl of rice,' " Chen said on Monday's episode, referencing comments Gries made about Helen Kim, an Asian-American contestant.

"It stung. I took it personally; I'm a human being," Chen continued. "The really sad part was it took me back to the '70s when I was growing up in Queens and when I was 7 years old being bullied being called a chink and people pulling their eyes. But it took me back so many years and I thought to myself: Wow I haven't heard comments like that. The year is 2013 … and then I felt ignorant. Wow, there are people who still live in this country who feel that way and act that way. Yes, there is. Yes, there is. And afterward, it just made me sad because she's 22 and she's college-educated."

The Talk co-host Sara Gilbert commented on CBS' decision to air Gries' comments in the July 7 episode. "I feel like it's good for people to see it and let these people deal with these consequences when they get out of the house," she said.

Gries is one of three houseguests under fire for insensitive comments made in the house during the 90-day competition. The Texas resident has since been dropped by her modeling agency and lost a gig with Bella Petite magazine.

The many faces of Ron Perlman



No one forgets the face of actor Ron Perlman once they’ve seen it. It’s a big, long one, with a jutting jaw and two rows of very large teeth.

Yet, for years, no one knew what he really looked like. For his breakthrough TV role as Vincent on “Beauty and the Beast,” it was impossible to recognize him under a long mane and all of that disfiguring makeup.

There was considerably more makeup, all of it bright red, along with a couple of sawed-off horns on top of his head when he landed his biggest film role, starring in “Hellboy.”

His real face is on display in his current hit TV show, “Sons of Anarchy,” on which he stars as bike gang president Clay Morrow. But it was back to the makeup room for the scars and tattoos, along with the accompanying earring and dark glasses for Hannibal Chau, the amoral war profiteer he plays in the science-fiction action film “Pacific Rim,” which opens next Friday.

It’s hard to picture Perlman in his early acting days, up on the stage, doing Shakespeare and Chekhov, even singing and dancing in a production of “Pal Joey.”

He made his jump into film, under a lot of makeup, with “Quest for Fire,” and has rarely slowed down since.

With Hannibal Chau, he’s made his fifth film for Mexican director Guillermo del Toro. The movie tells of a near-future in which our planet is under siege by huge Godzilla-like creatures that are fought off by human-controlled giant robots. His extremely flashy and no doubt dangerous character makes his living on the black market.

OPI Launches New Couture de Minnie Nail Polish Collection



How about a Minnie-cure?

OPI recently announces the launch of its Couture de Minnie Nail Polish Collection. This has to be the best blend of girly fabulousness and nail design innovation we've seen in nails for a while. Leave it to Minnie!

Following the success of the Vintage Minnie Mouse Nail Collection last summer, OPI and Mickey's better half have teamed up again to create a set of four limited edition nail lacquers and one new Liquid SandTM shade. Created in honor of this beloved Disney character, the Couture de Minnie line explores the fashion-forward side of Minnie Mouse, mixing pink, fuschia and red shades with textural elements. In addition to three crème lacquers, the Couture de Minnie line features a red and white polka dot glitter shade and the strawberry-hued Liquid Sand nail lacquer in Magazine Cover Mouse to give nails a sparkly, matte finish.

Last summer, OPI created a 'Vintage Minnie Mouse' line. Women around the world fell in love with the fun and playful shades evocative of Minnie's traditional look," explained Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. "This year, OPI is exploring a different side of Minnie Mouse. The Couture de Minnie collection draws inspiration from Minnie's iconic style and incorporates trends most recently seen on the runways, from standout shades to fun textural elements." The Couture de Minnie collection includes:

Man threatens Taylor Swift on FB then attends her concert, gets arrested at concert



PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Taylor Swift performed at Heinz Field Saturday for about 57,000 fans with very little trouble. However, there was one big concern: 28-year-old Joseph Jackson of Clarksburg.

Police say Jackson threatened Swift on Facebook, he said "Taylor Swift must perish and die" then he brought posters to her concert reading “I luv you” and “Taylor Swift is with Satan.” After seeing the posters and the alleged Facebook threats, police moved in and grabbed Jackson in his seat.

“Certain actions you take on the internet are illegal by definition,” said attorney David Shrager. “Certain statements can be used against you in a courtroom.” Shrager does not have this case, but has several like it. He says social media can be dangerous legal territory. “I have cases, I go into court, the prosecution has evidence of my client making statements on the internet or taking pictures of himself with firearms and putting them on Facebook pages or their Twitter accounts and that makes it very difficult for me,” he said.

In this particular case, police say Joseph Jackson became particularly agitated when asked about the Facebook threats toward Taylor Swift. According to police records, Jackson told arresting officers “Taylor Swift is Satan and that 6,000 years is six days and death comes on the sixth day, so Taylor Swift is in danger.”

Adam Scott Talks 'Six Feet Under' And Michael C. Hall

Now famous for winning Leslie Knope's (Amy Poehler) heart on "Parks And Recreation" and for his "Party Down" bow tie, Adam Scott was once gunning for a role on "Six Feet Under."

He did end up scoring a role on the HBO drama -- as David's (Michael C. Hall) love interest for two episodes-- but it wasn't the role he initially auditioned for.

"You know how I got that role? It was me, Michael C. Hall and Jeremy Sisto testing for the role that Michael ultimately got ... He and I got to know each other a little bit [during the casting process], and then six months later, they had me come in to play his boyfriend for two episodes," Scott told TVLine.

It’s nearly five minutes long and narrated: “A sprawling, satirical re-imagining of modern Southern California,” says the person giving the tour. “Covering mountains and oceans, expensive stores and strip malls, urban decay and untouched wilderness, beaches and backwoods, the sublime and the ridiculous, greed and hypocrisy.” I want this game, now.

John Mayer Buys a Guitar for a Teenage Girl and Makes Me Think He's Slightly Less of a Douche



Sure, celebs can sign a fan's guitar, but how many actually buy them one?

"I started crying and screaming. I was the luckiest and happiest person alive," aspiring musician Julie Fermin tells PEOPLE of being gifted a guitar from her idol John Mayer.

Fermin, 16, was browsing the selection at Rudy's Music in New York City Friday when Mayer – who had performed on Today that morning – and his girlfriend Katy Perry entered the shop.

"[My friends and I] started freaking out and getting super excited," Fermin says of happening upon two of her "favorite singers."

Noticing their warm reception, Mayer and Perry greeted their young fans and conversed with them about their love of music – Perry, 28, even complimented and took a photo of one of the girls' earrings, according to Rudy's employee Brad Tertola.

"They treated them so beautifully," Tertola, 36, says of Mayer and Perry's interaction with the teenagers. "They were just so comfortable and sweet and as nice as any couple."

After Mayer, 35, casually asked Fermin how long she'd been playing and to show him which guitar she liked best, he and Perry said their goodbyes.

It wasn't until after the couple left the store that Fermin was told Mayer had purchased the guitar for her on the way out.

"I was so shocked," says Fermin, who first picked up the instrument at age 11. "I cannot describe all the emotions I was feeling at that moment."

The story also touched the store's employees.

"I was so happy about it," says Tertola. "I experienced first-hand the kind of sweet guy John is. He and Katy are just wonderful people."

Jennifer Lopez Covers 'W' Magazine August 2013



Jennifer Lopez goes ultra-glam on the cover of W magazine’s August 2013 issue, on newsstands July 16.

Here’s what the 43-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:

On being close to her childhood home in The Bronx for the interview: “The last time I was in there was when my mom and dad called us home to tell us they were separating after 33 years of marriage. I think that’s why I was nervous about coming here today. It’s like seeing someone from the past—you’re afraid to run into them because you never know if it’s going to be ‘wow’ or very difficult. This is a combination of both.”

On her and her mother’s relationship: “My mom and I butted heads. I didn’t want to go to college—I wanted to try dance full-time. I was homeless. But I told her ‘This is what I have to do.’”

On parenting her kids Max and Emme: “I think a lot about teaching my kids to work hard. I’ve learned something about kids—they don’t do what you say; they do what you do. I watched my parents.”

Meeting Selena Gomez rule No. 1: Do not mention Justin Bieber


Strolling into The Hazelton Hotel in Yorkville, I text Selena Gomez’s publicist.

Minutes earlier, as I was parking, she had texted another warning. The message was similar to one she emailed the night before. It was written with a declarative, pay-attention-dummy urgency, the kind often favoured by despots in fear of an uprising.

“Just want to stress again how important it is to not ask any Bieber questions or anything even relating to relationships. It’s all about the music today.”

Right. The music.


Gomez is in town to talk about her new album. The rules of engagement are as follows: 1. I have 10 minutes to ask my questions. 2. These questions must dodge the superficial ephemera that often propel the 20-year-old into the gossip cycle: her looks, her friends, her clothes and, most frequently, her on-off-on-really-off relationship with Justin Bieber.

But there’s a problem: it’s the last day of May and the new album won’t be released until July 23 (this story was written under embargo). With the exception of “Come and Get It,” a track released early as a video, I have not heard “the music.”


So before this highly controlled swap of treacly platitudes masquerading as “an interview” can unfold, I’ve been asked to arrive an hour early to sample “the music.”

A copy of the new album is somewhere in the hotel. It is being guarded with feverish precaution, as if the 11-track recording is actually the Mona Lisa on a touring exhibition in a city prone to solar flares and exploding water pipes.

Kirk Frost's actual threesome is happening on camera.  Whatever happened to the subtle innuendo of a man walking two hoochies into his bedroom and America knowing what was getting ready to happen?  Did we really need to see the naked backs and the massages?  Gahhhh.  The following morning, Kirk knows he's got a lot of things to fix, but he hasn't had so much fun since the late 90's.  Benzino thinks that his friend has made a major marriage error, and he questions Kirk as to whether a threesome with video vixens was "the pass" Rasheeda had given him.  Kirk couldn't care less.  He had a hot tub and some biznizzles…it was meant to be.  Please forgive me for trying to get my inner Scrappy on, but it's so much fun!

One more reason to love Mimi: Favorite TV show is Game of Thrones

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

File this under 'Awesome': Mariah Carey is a huge "Game of Thrones" fan.

Nick Cannon and March of Dimes hosted a “Daddy’s Day Out” on Thursday for new fathers who have had children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), and the "Americas Got Talent" judge talked with omg! about what a typical family night is like in the Cannon/Carey household.

"My favorite thing to do is lay in bed with my son, daughter, wife, and a bowl of popcorn and watch whatever," Cannon told omg!. "Seriously, [Mariah and I] have memorized every Shrek from 1 to 4. We will watch 'Shrek the Halls' in summer. 'The Lion King' is on all the time. You know we will see 'Monsters University.' But when the kids fall asleep, my wife will watch our shows. We love 'Boardwalk Empire,' 'Scandal,' and 'Homeland.'"

We told Cannon that the fact "Game of Thrones" is not on that list is a problem. duh

"Oh, my wife is into 'Game of Thrones'! I'm not into it yet," Cannon laughed. "She loves it. She'll stay up late watching it. I tried watching it a couple times when she watches it. She's into 'The Tudors,' 'Game of Thrones' - it's all the same show to me. I'm like, 'Is Henry VIII in this one?' I know I have to get into it, because she loves it."

Emma Watson Admits to Hoarding Make-Up, Reveals Three Must-Have Products



Emma Watson is a beauty product junkie.

The 23-year-old actress has amassed an impressive collection of cosmetics and skincare products over the years which take pride of place in her room, despite confessing she hardly ever wears them.

She told French blog Signé Beauté: ''What's quite funny is that I have tonnes of products at home. I've always loved make-up and I'm fascinated by how much it can transform people. But I don't actually wear much of it. It's so ironic - but I just love products!''

The 'Bling Ring' star does have three must-have products, however, which she likes to carry in her handbag wherever she goes.

Emma said: ''I'm English and I have fair skin, so I love blusher! When I travel, I always have a moisturising cream with me on the plane and I like to carry fragrance with me too.''

The stylish star - who is the face of luxury brand Lancôme - might be low-key when it comes to her beauty regime, but she always makes sure to take care of her skin.

She revealed: ''I don't really have a beauty ritual, but I really make an effort to take my make-up off properly. I was taught never to pluck my eyebrows excessively and to always remove my make-up before going to bed.''

Big Brother USA Spencer Clawson mom: 'He's not a bigot or racist'

Big Brother USA star Spencer Clawson is not a "bigot", his mother has insisted.

Clawson has been criticized for describing a gay houseguest as "Kermit the f*g", praising Hitler's oratory skills, suggesting that Nazi medical torture had some benefits, and describing the female contestants as "c**ts".

However, Clawson's mother Donna Clawson has now insisted that her son is only making the comments to befriend other houseguests, who have also been filmed making racist and homophobic remarks.

"Spencer really is a great guy," Donna told TMZ. "This is not a guy that's a bigot or a racist. And he's not that way at home. He's a great guy."

She continued: "If you're in a group, you go along with the group talk and that is what is happening with him... This is a reality show. The purpose of the show is scheming behind each other's backs. Spencer might not be perfect but he's my son. All those kids are somebody's child. He's a good guy."

Big Brother USA host Julie Chen recently spoke out about the bigoted comments made by the houseguests, admitting that they were "ugly" and "mean" and made her feel "sad".

Clawson has been criticized by his employer, while Aaryn Gries has been dropped by her modeling agency and GinaMarie Zimmerman has lost her job with a pageant company.

Benedict Cumberbatch Set to Appear on ‘Top Gear’



Is that the sound of demographics noisily converging I hear? Are the massed ranks of Cumberbabes about to invade the manly environs of Top Gear?

Well, yes.

On Monday July 22 at 8:30 pm/7:30c on BBC AMERICA, Benedict Cumberbatch — Sherlock himself — will be Top Gear’s star in a reasonably-priced car.

As things stand currently, he will need to go faster than Brian Johnson, the lead singer from AC/DC, who managed a lap in 1:45.1.

Mariah's injuries more severe than reported & Nicholas Carey-Cannon talks multiple career ventures

"It was pretty serious," he said. "Not only did she dislocate her shoulder, she actually cracked a rib and ... she chipped her shoulder bone."


(CNN) -- Nick Cannon is proud of his wife Mariah Carey's "trooper" mentality in the face of her injury.

Carey dislocated her shoulder on Sunday while shooting her latest music promo for her single "#Beautiful" in New York City. Immediately after the accident, she visited New York's Hospital for Special Surgery on the Upper East Side to have her shoulder reset.

Cannon was with the mother of his two children when she sustained the trauma, and he is shocked by how strong Carey was through all the pain.

"She's such a trooper," Nick told the "Today" show Tuesday. "I was going to rush to the hospital with her, [but she said,] 'You get back in there and finish that video!' Then, after they put [her] shoulder back in place, bandaged her all up, she came back to the video early in the morning and finished out everything."

Max Marshall - Don't Trip (Music Video)



You probably haven’t heard of Max Marshall before, but you’ve definitely seen her work – the Baltimore-born London resident has been creating wigs for Lady Gaga and working with Charlie Le Mindu for years. Her VHS-style video for debut single ‘Don’t Trip’ is just as stylish as you’d expect, although she’s swapped the bespoke couture for baseball caps and rolled cigarettes.

The song itself? A sublimely cool piece of old-school R&B reminiscent of Lauryn Hill’s earliest work, and emerging producers Electric adding a well-judged layer of twinkling beats. Music might be a world away from making wigs for Gaga, but somehow we think the 21-year-old’s going to do just fine.

Don’t Trip is out on 12th August.

Amanda Bynes wears a blue wig to court



Amanda Bynes rolled into a New York courtroom today dressed more for a rave than a court hearing -- sporting an aqua-colored wig, sweatpants, a tank top ... and sneakers!

... and no one was surprised.

Bynes was in court to fight allegations she threw a glass bong out of her NY apartment window back in May.

According to police, Amanda threw the bong out of her window before they arrested her, but she has denied the accusation ... in fact, she says the arresting officer sexually assaulted her by slapping her vagina.

50 Cent Says He’s Rewriting His Will After Text Messages To His Son Leak



50 cent definitely won’t be vying for any father of the year spots anytime soon.

Earlier today, a text message exchange between Fiddy and his 16-year-old son Marquise hit the web, which did an excellent job of painting him as a horrible dad who likes to say “F-ck you” to his son and tell him he’s “f-cking stupid” often. In response, 50 took to his twitter and admitted that those texts, which were released by Radar Online, belonged to him but it was his child’s mother that was texting him the entire time and pretending to be his son.

He wrote to his followers:

That was his mother texting me as him.she sold that to a web site.she hate me for Winning, it’s hard to replace me.

Read the text carefully you will see what I’m saying.


He also claimed that the entire situation made him rewrite his will:

I rewrote my will today now when I pass away all my physical property’s and MOST of my money go’s to charities and TIFFANY LIGHTY so when I’m done she can be 50cent

That’s tough.

The Text Message Conversation that NFL Aaron Hernandez had with Odin Lloyd the Night He Was Killed

 photo aaron-hernandez-in-handcuffs_zps4afab098.jpg

Investigators released the results of a search warrant against Aaron Hernandez this afternoon.

It gives further details of the prosecution's claim that Hernandez, along with two associates, picked up Odin Lloyd at his house in Boston, drove him to an industrial park less than a mile from Hernandez's home, and shot him five times.

Police released the specifics of the text message conversation that Hernandez had with Lloyd on the night of his death.

Here's the conversation as it appeared in court records (via Brian Ballou of the Boston Globe):

Hernandez (9:05 pm): "I'm coming to grab that tonight u gon b around I need dat and we could step for a little again"
[no answer]
Hernandez (9:34 pm): "Waddup."
Lloyd (9:37 pm): "Aite, where."
Hernandez (9:39 pm): "idk it don't matter but imma hit u when I'm dat way like Las time if my phone dies imma hit u when I charge it which will be in a lil."
Lloyd (10:00 pm): "Aite idk anything goin on"
Hernandez (10:13 pm): "I'll figure it out ill hit u on way."
Lloyd (12:22 am): "We still on."

The court records also show that Lloyd kept Hernandez in his phone under the name "Dis N***a."

Investigators say Hernandez picked up Lloyd at 2:33 a.m. It's unclear what Hernandez was referring to when he said "grab that," but Hernandez's girlfriend reportedly told police that Lloyd was a marijuana dealer before Hernandez told her to stop talking to investigators.

Tom Hiddleston has been a busy man – almost as busy as the player he was watching at Wimbledon on Sunday, Andy Murray.

The 32-year-old British actor was on Centre Court to see Murray win the men’s singles at SW19, in the company of his new rumoured girlfriend Jane Arthy.

Then the following evening he was seen at smart London restaurant Nobu – but with a different, mystery woman.

James Van Der Beek Says Humans Drinking Cow’s Milk is ‘Weird’

 photo james-van-der-beek-592x394_zpsa38f060e.jpg

Actor James Van Der Beek had his private thoughts on humans drinking cow’s milk validated yesterday after reading an article by Dr. Mark Hyman titled, “Got Proof? Lack of Evidence for Milk’s Benefits”.

The former “Dawson’s Creek” star tweeted, “I KNEW sucking a cow’s udder was a weird thing for a human to do…Great article via @KimberlilyVDB @unhealthytruth”.

The article argues that, “There is no biological requirement for cow’s milk. It is nature’s perfect food but only if you are a calf. The evidence of its benefits is overstated, and the evidence of its harm to human populations is increasing.”

We don’t know exactly what Van Der Beek eats or doesn’t eat or if he follows a specific diet, but based on some advice his wife gave to new mothers, we bet his meals are heavy on veggies and light on animal products. In a guest blog for People, Kimberly Van Der Beek recommends to families that they should “eat less meat”, “go dairy free” and “start a garden”. That sounds like advocating for raising a vegan baby to us.

Not that we’re surprised that the Van Der Beeks choose plants over animals when it comes to diet. If you saw the actor on “Don’t Trust The B—- in Apt 23″, you know that his physique is positively chiseled.

Robin Thicke Hits Back At 'Ridiculous' Criticism Of 'Blurred Lines' Video

Robin Thicke is currently riding high on the 'Blurred Lines' wave, one of the biggest songs of the summer so far. But not everyone is a fan, with one rape charity claiming that the song "reinforces rape myths."

A spokeswoman for Rape Crisis told The Independent that the lyrics "seem to glamorise violence against women. Certain lyrics are explicitly sexually violent and appear to reinforce victim-blaming rape myths."

But this is far from the case says singer Thicke. Speaking to Radio 1 he said: "I can't even dignify that with a response, that's ridiculous.

"I don't want to be sleazy, I'm a gentleman, I've been in love with the same woman since I've been a teenager. I don't want to do anything inappropriate."

"For me it's about blurring the lines between men and women and how much we're the same. And the other side which is the blurred lines between a good girl and a bad girl, and even very good girls all have little bad sides to them."

Thick, along with Pharrell Williams and T.I, who both feature on the track, have a host of semi naked girls dancing around them for the music video. But the explicit video was the idea of director Diane Martel.

Thicke was even against the idea at first, telling Radio 1 "My initial response was I love the clothed version, I don't think we should put out the naked version."

"And then I showed it to my wife and all of her girlfriends and they said 'You have to put this out, this is so sexy and so cool.'"

The nude ladies seem to have done the song no harm and it spent a month long reign at the top of the UK charts. And it's still holding strong at number two.

Roc Nation Explains New Rihanna Record

Yesterday, fans of ‘The Final Goodbye’ singer rejoiced in the news that Rihanna‘s ‘Stay’ had become the highest selling ballad by a black female artist, in the US.

Retweeting a fan who shared this information with fans, the performer came under heavy praise from her supporters for nabbing the record, and ultimately snatching it from Beyonce and her heartfelt jam, ‘Halo‘.
Unfortunately, much like the second #1 album she’s yet to score, it emerged that the so called record did not exist- with records by Whitney Houston, Beyonce and Tracy Chapman trumping sales scored by ‘Stay’.
Now peep what Rihanna’s peeps over at Roc Nation have to say on the matter, below!
Choking her own claim this record was held in the USA, the label’s congratulatory tweet came as the song continues to shift major units across the globe, but fails to outperform the very songs her fans believed she had.
One of them, being Chapman’s Grammy award winning ‘Fast Car’ and the other being Leona Lewis’ ‘Bleeding Love’ which reached sales of 4,589,000 in the market last month.

In saying that, the 3 million or so units the release has sold in the US is to be commended considering the time in which it sold them in, and that it will undoubtedly reach or surpass the 4 million mark within a year of its release.

Pretty major, when one considers how difficult other acts have found shifting Dance cuts to the masses of late.
Here’s hoping Riri fact checks before retweeting from now on!

Chiwetel Ejiofor Will Indeed Make His Directorial Debut Adapting William Kamkwamba's Story



It was in January of this year when we first reported that Chiwetel Ejiofor is currently adapting William Kamkwamba's book The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind. At the time, details were sparse as to what exactly Ejiofor's involvement would be - whether in front of, behind the camera, or both.

Now thanks to a profile of Ejiofor posted on the UK's Telegraph website today, on his starring role as Patrice Lumumba, in Aimé Césaire's play, A Season in the Congo, at the Young Vic in London, we know just a little more about his film adaptation of Kamkwamba's novel.

The piece states that Ejiofor will direct the film adaptation, and not appear in it, making this his feature film directorial debut. He previously helmed a short film called Slapper in 2008, which we profiled on the old S&A site.

I remember first writing about William Kamkwamba back in 2009, during the early S&A days.  A brief recap of his story...

When he was just 14 years old, Malawian William Kamkwamba built his family an electricity-generating windmill from spare parts, working from rough plans he found in a library book. Thanks to the attention he received around the world for his efforts, he co-wrote a book about the experience, encouraging global investment in alternate natural energy sources. The book titled, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, was published in 2009, and you can find it on sites like Amazon.

I should mention that there was actually a short film version of William's story, also made by Nabors and Rielly, which played the film festival circuit in 2008 and won a number of awards.

As for Chiwetel Ejiofor's scripted fictional adaptation of Kamkwamba's book, no word on where exactly it stands currently, or when we can expect to see it. At least we now know that he's contributions will be strictly behind the camera as director.

The Real Reason You Hate These Celebs

#9 Taylor Swift-The Female Peter Pan



We've heard it all before, "she's whiny", "she's a serial dater", "Is she still in high school?". And you know what? We agree. Duh. How could you not find her annoying? She basically sings one song in 50 variations. But none of that matters. She's beautiful, and has amassed a cult like following of girls who's predecessors were fawning over Meg Ryan in every one of her disgustingly romantic chick flicks.

Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail Sales Predictions & Now Certified Platinum


Jay-Z is projected to move 350k-400k opening week with "Magna Carta Holy Grail."

Jay-Z has already acheived platinum status for Magna Carta Holy Grail, even before the LP dropped with the RIAA changing their regulations to accomodate the legendary rapper.

Now that the album is officially released, first week sales projections have surfaced. The album is reportedly on track to move 350,000 - 400,000 opening week. This number is based in part off the pre-order sales from digital retailers like iTunes.

If the album moves this much, it'll have the #1 spot, making it Hov's 13th chart-topping debut-- thus giving him the title of the solo artist with the most #1 albums in history.

"Magna Carta Holy Grail" certified platinum

Jay-Z’s album just hit stores today, but it’s already been certified platinum. The RIAA presented the hip-hop mogul with a platinum plaque for 1 million copies sold of Magna Carta Holy Grail. It marks his 12th platinum album to date.

Samsung purchased 1 million copies of the album and gave them away to their mobile users for free via the Magna Carta app on Google Play.

Jay-Z prompted the RIAA to change its certification policy, which previously required that albums be available for 30 days prior to certification. The new policy counts digital album sales immediately upon release.

Despite its pre-release, MCHG is still expected to sell around 450,000 copies in its first week.
