'Thirteen Reasons Why' Author Jay Asher Responds To Sexual Harassment Allegations

This is a follow-up to this post about the many people who have been recently named as sexual predators in the children's publishing industry, including James Dashner (Maze Runner), Mo Willems (Don't Let the Pigeon Drive The Bus), Sherman Alexie (The Absolute Diary of a Part-Time Indian), and Jay Asher (Thirteen Reasons Why).

Here's a breakdown:
  • It was recently revealed that Jay Asher, author of the best-selling YA novel Thirteen Reasons Why — which spawned a successful Netflix adaptation — was expelled from the nonprofit literary organization Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) last year after the organization received allegations of sexual harassment.
  • Asher claims that he was not pushed out of SCBWI, but left on his own accord. He said: “It's very scary when you know people are just not going to believe you once you open your mouth. I feel very conflicted about it just because of what's going on in the culture and who's supposed to be believed and who's not.”
  • Asher also feels he has been "thrown under the bus," claiming he was "harassed" by a group of anonymous people who were after him for over 10 years.
  • Many authors, editors, and agents who work in children's publishing are aghast at Asher's response, especially in light of recent sexual harassment and assault allegations made against a group of people in the children's publishing community.

    Chris Columbus to Direct Five Nights at Freddy's Movie

    Chris Columbus will be writing, directing, and producing the film based on the popular series of horror games where a security guard must survive a night with creepy and hostile animatronics.

    The movie was initially in production with WB/New Line and had hired Gil Kenan (the flop Poltergeist with Sam Rockwell) to direct, but it seemed to fall into development hell. Then they put the rights in a turnaround last March, and Blumhouse was able to woo over creator Scott Cawthon.

    Cawthon will produce alongside Columbus and Jason Blum and will make a truckload of money thanks to Blum's microbudget methods.

    The franchise has six different games, a series of novels, and a shit ton of merchandise that can be found in Targets and Game Stops and etc

    Michael Hirst and Martin Scorsese working together on "The Caesars"

    • The Caesars’ tells the story of ancient Rome early rulers, beginning with the rise to power of the notorious Julius Caesar.

    • Hirst has already written the pilot and there are plans to start shooting in Italy next year.

    • This series will be a slightly new take because it will focus on Julius Caesar when he was younger and it will have that energy and vitality.

    First anonymous Oscar voter ballot is revealed! All for 3 Billboards & hardcore #JusticeforMudbound

    So someone in the costume design sector of the Academy revealed some of their voting preferences for this year's Oscars when they go live (starting next Tuesday for Academy members):

    -- Best Picture: Overall if they could have, they would've gone for Mudbound (they preferred it well beyond Lady Bird or Phantom Thread). But for those nominated they're going to list 3 Billboards and Get Out as the their top two in preferential.
    -- Best Director: Is baffled 3 Billboards didn't get nominated, and is gunning for 'The Shape of Water' since Mudbound didn't get a nod. Didn't like Dunkirk, Lady Bird, or Phantom Thread at all.
    -- Screenplays: Mudbound for adapted, of course; 3 Billboards for original (which they found dark, funny and with unexpected twists apparently).
    -- Actor: Said all were great, but they're giving their vote to Gary fucking Oldman.
    -- Actress: Was glad Margot Robbie got a nod, and loved Sally Hawkins & Frances McDormand the most, but thinks Sally has a long career ahead of her so her Oscar can wait - hence why Frances should get a second Oscar????

    Tom Fletcher Comments on McFLY No.6 and that he isn't "too busy writing books"


    *McFly haven't released a proper album in 8 years, with their last one Above The Noise, released in 2010. They were going to release a 6th album couple years back and had 3 albums worth of material, but decided to push it back in favour of McBUSTED, a super group of McFly and Busted, which was ery successful, having an album and sold out tour in the UK. They did release couple singles as a band as well such as Love on the Radio, and Love Is Easy, and had "The Anthology Tour" where they played every song from ever album.

    *Since then, the members have been doing solo projects and have been busy with their families, as 3 of the boys have had babies recently.

    *Tom in particular has released couple children's books and novels (some with his band member, Dougie), and just announced a trilogy of books that he's written with his wife, Giovanna, called Eve of Man.

    *The news of the trilogies left some McFly fans upset and frustrated because they feel that they've abandoned McFly, which caused Tom to tweet a statement regarding it, which he has never done. It seems that there might be some issues behind the scenes regarding the absence of McFly


    I just really miss McFLY, and wanted a post. I used to run the McFly Canadian Fan Club twitter page at one point when I was like 14, hahaha, and though my love for them has been low-key now, if they ever came to Canada, I would actually spend a shit load of money for them. I really do miss them, ugh

    New English-dubbed Trailer for DC's Animated Film Batman Ninja

    – The upcoming DC animated film Batman Ninja just dropped its first English-dubbed trailer, featuring the voices of Roger Craig Smith, Tony Hale, Tara Strong, and more.
    – The synopsis reads: "Batman Ninja takes a journey across the ages as Gorilla Grodd's time displacement machine transports many of Batman's worst enemies to Feudal Japan - along with the Dark Knight and a few of his allies. The villains take over the forms of the feudal lords that rule the divided land, with the Joker taking the lead among the warring factions. As his traditional high-tech weaponry is exhausted almost immediately, Batman must rely on his intellect and his allies - including Catwoman and the extended Bat-family - to restore order to the land, and return to present-day Gotham City."

    – It'll be released digitally April 24th and on DVD/Blu-ray May 8th. Figurines will go on sale too as well.
    – The film was directed by Junpei Muzusaki ft. character designs by Afro Samurai creator Takashi Okazaki. In addition to Batman and the Joker, the film will also features all four Robins, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Bane, Poison Ivy, and Gorilla Grodd.

    Netflix's 13 Reasons Why unaffected by Jay Asher harassment allegations

    Jay Asher, author of 13 Reasons Why, was expelled from the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators last year due to allegations of sexual harassment.

    Report: Zack Snyder actually fired from Justice League

    -- Warner Bros Motion Picture President Greg Silverman was supervisor for DC's film slate. He was removed from that post in May 2016 after the disastous reception to Batman v Superman. Executives were concerned with Snyder's work and pleaded with Silverman to replace him for JL. Silverman refused. He was fired from the studio in December 2016.

    -- Snyder was then fired from the film several weeks later. While rough-cuts tend to be terrible and in need of major work, multiple sources say Snyder's rough-cut of the film was unwatchable.

    -- No announcement of his departure was made until May, when Snyder announced he was leaving to take care of his family after his daughter's death.

    -- WB has commented that Snyder's involvement in DC's film universe at this time is limited to being an executive producer only.

    -- The film was released digitally today, so #BuyJusticeLeagueoniTunes

    Harry Styles nomm'd for Celeb Straight Ally, award name changed to Celebrity Ally after complaints

    The British superstar was nominated for a "Celebrity Straight Ally" LGBT award, but after fans complained the awards put "sexuality undefined" after Harry's name and changed the name of the category to 'Top Celebrity Ally'.
    When previously asked about labeling his sexuality, Harry said “I’ve never felt the need to really. No....I don’t feel like it’s something I’ve ever felt like I have to explain about myself.”


    I'm conflicted, on one hand it's wrong to label him straight when he specifically said he doesn't like to label himself on the other this seems OTT and some fans complaining seem tinhat-y. What do y'all think?

    'Annihilation' Criticized for "White-Washed Casting"

    The Biologist Lena is played by Natalie Portman, the character is of Asian descent in the books.
    The Psychologist Dr. Ventress is played by Jennifer Jason Leigh. In the book, the character is half-Caucasian and half-American Indian.

    Two organizations have accused the film of whitewashing these two characters: Media Action Network for Asian Americans and American Indians in Film and Television. :

    “Writer/director Alex Garland is not being true and honest to the characters in the book. He exploits the story but fails to take advantage of the true identities of each character. Hollywood rarely writes prominent parts for Asian American and American Indian characters, and those roles could’ve bolstered the careers of women from those communities.”

    “We are not surprised by the Whack-a-Mole diversity replacement that goes on; just when you finish objecting to one white-washed casting, another one pops up,”
