Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman, Edward Norton to Voice Chinese Animated Film



And in today's episode of Let's Cast More White People in POC Roles:




The Chinese animated film Little Door Gods is receiving the Weinstein treatment. Retitled The Guardian Brothers, the movie focuses on two door guardian brothers as they deal with a fading
Spirit world due to people no longer believing in it. One of the brothers seek employment in the human world (possibly) at a generations old wonton soup shop run by a mother, Kidman, and daughter, Zendaya Bella Thorne, duo.

Meryl Streep narrates. It is unclear if she, or the white actors portraying Chinese characters in the movie will have an accent.

Zendaya was originally tapped to voice the daughter but dropped out of the project. She was replaced with her Shake it Out castmate, Thorne.

Randall Park, Fresh off the Boat, apparently is attached to the project. I guess AN Asian, despite being a different ethnicity, is better than none at all for this Chinese project.

TL;DR more white washing in Hollywood.

Mark Zuckerberg looks to expand private beachfront property by suing Native Hawaiians


-Mark Zuckerberg is trying to force hundreds of Hawaii families to leave their ancestral lands
-In an attempt to make his 100 million dollar & 700 acre beachfront compound more private, facebook billionaire Mark Zuckerberg is seeking out and suing several hundred native Hawaiians who have claim to parts of his land
-There are parcels of land on and near his property that are occupied via "Kuleana Act" law. The plots are divided into smaller portions and passed down through native families over generations
-Zuckerberg has filed "quiet and title actions" against several hundred Native Hawaiian people in order to identify the current legal owners and force a sale of the plots of land
-Due to the United State's annexation and overthrow of the sovereign Kingdom of Hawaii, it is not unusual for large portions of land sales in Hawaii to contain plots with unclear ownership
-Locals criticized the Zuck earlier this year for building a wall that obstructs the view and limits local beach access enjoyed by neighbors for decades. Zuckerberg has criticized Trump's talk of building a border wall.
