CW developing horror anthology series written and directed entirely by women

The horror anthology series is titled "Black Rose Anthology".
Will be produced by Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen’s Flower Films.
Will be written and directed entirely by women.
Jill Blotevogel (former showrunner of MTV's Scream) will write the pilot script.
It will explore some of humanity’s deepest fears from a woman’s unique perspective. Classic themes of terror will be tackled via vignettes about guilt, jealousy, repression, paranoia, insanity, sexual obsession and survival through a modern and distinctly feminine lens.


Time Magazine Sorted Half a Million Americans Into Harry Potter Houses. Here's What They Discovered:

Some things that they learned:
- America is a nation of Ravenclaws and Hufflepuffs
- Men gravitate to Slytherin and Gryffindor
- Slytherin is for the young
- Hufflepuff is prevalent in the middle of America, while Slytherin gravitates to the South, Gryffindor to the Southwest, and Ravenclaw to upper New England.


You can take the quiz yourself HERE

I took the quiz and I'm a Ravenclaw with Slytherin tendencies which is also what I got when I took the quiz on Pottermore. Do you guys agree with their findings? What house(s) have you been sorted into?

The WB wants Leonardo DiCaprio to play the Joker

  • Last week the WB announced a Joker origin film with Martin Scorsese as a producer

  • They are planning on using Scorsese to lure DiCaprio into playing the Joker

  • No one believes this is actually going to happen because the Scorsese deal isn't even done yet and DiCaprio has backed away from every franchise/superhero deal he was ever offered

  • WB is trying to use it as a signal that they are about making "serious" and "artistic" films even though the director of the film Todd Phillips has churned out such gems as War Dogs and The Hangover

  • Jared Leto is apparently really upset about this news and wants to be the only Joker

  • Meanwhile Patty Jenkins has STILL not been officially hired back as director for Wonder Woman 2


WB, girl, what are you doing???

Todrick Hall gives an interview about the Taylor Swift backlash

Todrick Hall gave a long interview to Yahoo! about Taylor Swift and some of the things he's been seeing online.

Todrick on the idea that Taylor's video was ripping off Beyoncé:
I’m a humongous Beyoncé fan. I’ve worked with Beyoncé. I’ve choreographed for Beyoncé. And I would never intentionally be a part of art that I felt was ripping off my favorite artist of all time. But I felt like these were two completely different lanes

On refusing to hate white people and the cookout:
So it’s just really difficult for me to understand why it is an issue for people, a legitimate issue, that I have white friends, and that Taylor Swift happens to be one of my many white friends.

Apparently here’s a thing called the “cookout,” which is like your invitation to be a part of the black community. Some people have like deemed themselves the Woke Police, and they decide to strip you online of your invitation to attend the “cookout.” It boggles my mind that people are deciding whether or not I’m down enough, black enough, or woke enough to be “invited.” If I have to hate people and judge people based on their race, sexual orientation, or religion, then sorry, but I’d rather order pizza.

Trevor Noah calls Antifa "vegan ISIS"

Trevor Noah opened The Daily Show last night with a segment on Antifa. During the segment, Trevor said, "It doesn't matter what your noble goal may be, it doesn't matter what you say you're fighting for. When people see that, all they think is 'Oh shit, it's vegan ISIS.' Because you don't realize — when you think you're punching Nazis, you don't realize you're also punching your cause." Trevor went on to say that Antifa's violence only helps to discredit the movement and what they stand for.

Dad Sits Next to Nick Jonas on a Flight, Has No Idea Who He is...Then Goes Viral

When Twitter user @deannanicoleh's dad boarded his Delta Airlines flight, he had no idea he'd be breathing the same air as one of the most famous people on the planet. Once he realized the whole plane was shook at the man sitting next to him, he messaged his daughter asking who he was. @deannanicoleh filled him in, fan-girling, and asking him to snap a photo with none other than Nicky J.

"A famous singer. I love him," @deannanicoleh replied. "He was part of the Jonas Brothers." The Tweeter then shared her iMessage exchange with her father and the photos on Twitter, and the internet went wild over the interaction, retweeting the thrilling saga over 50 thousand times.

This comes just one week after the global superstar was cyber bullied on Instagram.

L'Oréal Fires First Transgender Model Munroe Bergdorf For "All Whites Are Racist" Facebook Post

"L’Oréal supports diversity and tolerance towards all people irrespective of their race, background, gender and religion. The L’Oréal Paris True Match campaign is a representation of these values and we are proud of the diversity of the Ambassadors who represent this campaign. We believe that the recent comments by Munroe Bergdorf are at odds with those values, and as such we have taken the decision to end the partnership with her. L’Oréal remains committed to celebrating diversity and breaking down barriers in beauty."

The post has since been taken down, but the model reportedly wrote in her original Facebook post :
"Honestly I don’t have energy to talk about the racial violence of white people any more. Yes ALL white people. Because most of ya’ll don’t even realise or refuse to acknowledge that your existence, privilege and success as a race is built on the backs, blood and death of people of colour. Your entire existence is drenched in racism. From micro-aggressions to terrorism, you guys built the blueprint for this shit. Come see me when you realise that racism isn’t learned, it’s inherited and consciously or unconsciously passed down through privilege. Once white people begin to admit that their race is the most violent and oppressive force of nature on Earth… then we can talk. Until then stay acting shocked about how the world continues to stay fucking at the hands of your ancestors and your heads that remain buried in the sand with hands over your ears."

Libba Bray writes an essay in response to the all-female Lord of the Flies

ICYMI a new all female version of Lord of the Flies to be written and directed by two white dudes was recently announced.

People did not take it well.

Many people (including many ONTDers) pointed to Libba Bray's Beauty Queens as an existing book that followed the same lines of Lord of the Flies and would make more sense to adapt rather than trying to gender flip Lord of the Flies. Bray wrote an op-ed for EW on her thoughts on the announcement.

Some highlights:

  • Says when she saw the announcement for the all-female Lord of the Flies she rolled her eyes because she wrote a version and Hollywood was not interested

  • Beauty Queens has been trying to be produced for years but most executives are male and don't "get" it and wanted adaptations that devolved into cat-fights and literal hair pulling

  • Another one of her novels, A Great and Terrible Beauty, was pitched to Hollywood studios that repeatedly told her she needed to add more men or change her lead (female) character to a male character

  • Points to recent successes like Wonder Woman, Girls Trip and Hidden Figures as women-centric movies that did well but will be written off as "flukes"

  • Says the problem is too many male execs at the top who are afraid of giving any power at all to women

Elisabeth Shue: "I've always truly felt that all human beings are bisexual."

Elisabeth Shue was recently interviewed about her role in the upcoming film Battle of the Sexes.

The film is about the 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs, played by Emma Stone and Steve Carell.

Billie Jean King is the first prominent professional female athlete to come out as a lesbian.

Elisabeth Shue plays the role of Bobby Riggs' wife Priscilla Wheelan.

During the interview, Elisabeth Shue is asked if she has ever played a lesbian role before.

Elisbeth says that she hasn't but that she would really like to.

She goes on to say that she believes all human beings are bisexual, that we're all attracted to each other, and that we eventually figure out who we want to marry or have a relationship with later on.

Gracie Gold taking a break from figure skating to seek professional help

Gracie's statement:

“My passion for skating and training remains strong. However, after recent struggles on and off the ice, I realize I need to seek some professional help and will be taking some time off while preparing for my Grand Prix assignments. This time will help me become a stronger person, which I believe will be reflected in my skating performances as well.”

  • She withdrew from the Japan Open but hasn't withdrawn from her Grand Prix events yet.

  • Gracie has been tanning left and right since the 2016 World Championships in Boston where she was the favorite to win and didn't even get a medal.

  • She called herself "overweight" last season and threw her TeamUSA warmup jacket in the trash. Legendary coach Frank Carroll practically fired her. She's said she struggles with motivation. Her father's medical license was suspended for prescription drug abuse.

  • Gracie was planning on skating to "People" by Barbra Streisand for her short program and the ballet "La Bayadere" for her long program.
