‘Hunger Games’ Prequel Novel From Suzanne Collins Coming In 2020


Get ready to return to Panem (If we're not already there by the time this book comes out).

Suzanne Collins is returning with a prequel book to the wildly popular "The Hunger Games" novels, and of course old pal Lionsgate is itching to adapt it into a movie. The book is not titled yet.

“As the proud home of the Hunger Games movies, we can hardly wait for Suzanne’s next book to be published. We’ve been communicating with her during the writing process and we look forward to continuing to work closely with her on the movie,” said Chairman of the Lionsgate Motion Picture Group about the plans for a movie.
The novel will be set in the world of Panem 64 years before the events of the original Hunger Games trilogy on the morning of the reaping of the 10th Hunger Games. For reference the two games that take place in the current books are #74 and #75.

It will have been more than 10 years since the first book took the world by storm. Do you think we've progressed as a society enough to not be angry when side characters are cast as the race they were described as? Do you think we could cast any potential lead accurately to the book to the movie? Who knows!

Taylor Swift's inspiration for "You Need To Calm Down"

Fans are suspecting that the 5th track on Taylor Swift's album "Lover" will be related to summer. First, in the video, Ellen DeGeneres was being tattooed with the phrase "Cruel Summer." Then, in her new Spotify storyline for "Calm Down," she says that she wrote the song "about the energy and effort that some people put into spreading negativity. With all of the trolling, cancel culture, telling people how to live their lives, or pitting women against each other... you're being too loud. This is a song where I'm just saying 'you need to calm down.' Go outside. It's the summer."


Collapse )

She also explains how the feud ended between her and Katy Perry during an interview this morning (thank you evett for posting it here). In it, she describes how it ended when Katy sent her an olive branch. She says, "We have been on really good terms for awhile. She sent this beautiful note and olive branch to the opening night of the Reputation Stadium Tour awhile ago. And from then on, we've been on good terms. We hadn't seen each other though, so the first time we saw each other, it was at this party. And when we saw each other, it was just very clear to both of us that everything was different... that we had grown up, that we had grown past, um, allowing ourselves to sort of be pitted against each other. It was just really, really clear that we remembered how much we had in common."

Happy 20th Anniversary to the Best Disney Movie - Tarzan


I am not taking suggestions about the title. Isaidwhatisaid.gif

From a slamming soundtrack with THE MAN himself, Phil Collins, Tarzan (Co-directed by Kevin Lima (A Goofy Movie) and Chris Buck (Frozen)) was the last movie of the Disney Reinassance of the 90s.

  • The film was originally slated for direct to home video ( D: ).

  • The initial scene introducing Jane was just going to be her passively walking away from a glaring baboon's mother after shooing the child away, but the final scene was the badass jungle chase we have today.

  • Wayne Knight (Jurassic Park, Space Jam) - the voice of Tantor (the elephant) based the voice off of an LA food critic, Merrill Shindler.


I'm not about to not talk about THE SOUNDTRACK

Mark Mancina (big Phil Collins fan, producer, arranger on The Lion King soundtrack) was not initially brought on for the project until after the initial composer wasn't working.

Notes that Mr. Collins went hard on the soundtrack, which we all knew, and did not phone it in. Fitting, as "You'll Be In My Heart" won both the Globe and the Oscar for Best Original Song.

Would the original crew like to see a live action remake? All three say 'NO!'

Bless them for admiring the concept of the original story but removing the weird "Darkest Africa" shit.

Catherine Hardwicke says Stephenie Meyer fought against diversifying Twilight cast




· In an interview with the Daily Beast marking Twilight's tenth anniversary, director Catherine Hardwicke says she initially wanted a more racially diverse cast but her ideas were nixed by Twilight author Stephenie Meyer, who described her characters as pale and sparkly in the books
· Hardwicke wanted Alice, played by Ashley Greene, to be Japanese but eventually had to give up on the idea after push back from Meyer. Hardwicke managed to talk Meyer into casting Kenya-born Edi Gathegi as villainous (op note: I've never seen these movies or read the books so idk about this character but there's debate in the source comments about whether or not he's a villain.. your call) Laurent, described as "olive skinned" in the books, by telling the author that there are black olives. After Gathegi's casting she was able to convince Meyer to greenlight Christian Serratos and Justin Chon
· Hardwicke also says the only reason she was able to direct Twilight is because the studio didn't expect it to be a success, assuming it would only do as well as Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, which earned $39mn. She says that if the studio expected it to be a blockbuster franchise, they would have hired a male director

The Spice Girls 2019 stadium tour have broken records, the ladies have performed for over 700,000 fans in a span of 16 dates. The last date of the Spice World Tour was at Wembley Stadium, which they last played 21 years ago. Among the hardcore fans that turned up were Adele, Emma Stone and Sam Smith. The tour proved to be a smashing success and revealed a whole bunch of revelations such as lesbian rompes and Geri apologizing for being a 'brat' and leaving the band. The girls also poked fun at the posh one along the way. This tour was a celebration of the girls and their impact. Adele rightfully called them 'British Legends'. The girls won't probably continue a world tour and are only slated to feature in a animated movie.

What Happened to Tom and His Coffee Shop on Big Little Lies?



This season on Big Little Lies, some viewers have noticed that the Monterey Five have taken their coffee business to a brand new location and that the former location's owner, Tom, is nowhere to be seen.

As for the new coffee shop, the answer may be as simple as the new director of this season (Andrea Arnold) wanting a new change of scenery. The Blue Blues Cafe of Season 1 was shot on a sound stage in LA but was inspired by/recreated from a real coffee shop called Paluca Trattoria that Season 1 director Jean-Marc Vallee liked to frequent (and still does).

“If it had been the same guy, I’m guessing he probably would’ve used our place again,” speculates owner Ashley Tedesco, “because he’s come back since and brought his girlfriend to hang out and eat. [Jean-Marc Vallee] would come over to our place and just hang out in the mornings and have coffee and come and have lunch [...] and he just sort of chatted with my husband, who’s the co-owner. He’s there every day. They sort of hit it off and that’s how it came to be, just on the fly [...] There was nothing from our end stopping them from using it, they just chose to do something a little different."

Collapse )

And as for Joseph Cross who played Tom? While it's not known why he's not back for the second season of HBO's hit show, he stayed busy in the interim with two projects -- his directorial debut, Summer Night which comes out this July, and the indie thriller Stay at Conder Beach.

“He met and married Kris [Jenner] and they really had a great time together, when they were together. Unfortunately, that ended. But never — and I want to stress never, in any shape or form — did I ever have any interest in Kris, romantically or sexually.”

“So, all of these stories are bogus, bad, tasteless. Khloé, like all the girls, I am very proud of, like I know Bob would be if he was here, but simple facts of the matter is she is not mine.”

The kings of Spain and the Netherlands get invested into the Order of the Garter by Elizabeth II

In the splendor of Windsor Castle earlier today, King Willem-Alexander of the Netherlands and King Felipe of Spain got invested as Stranger Knights into the Order of the Garter by Queen Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom. Taxpayers from all three countries rejoiced as they donned their dark blue velvet robes and ostrich-feathered hats for a procession through Windsor Castle. This prestigious order of chivalry was founded in 1348 and only allows 24 regular members, royal born members of the BRF, a few European kings and queens and the emperor of Japan.



Looking on were Sophie of Wessex, Queen Letizia, Camilla, Queen Maxima and Kate. And yes, this is work for them. I bet they don't have student loans.

There Were A Lot Of Problems During The Men In Black: International Shoot




The Hollywood Reporter details other reasons, aside from the casting, why the Men In Black reboot flopped.

- First Sony wanted to get Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones back for a sequel, but it deemed “an expensive and not as forward-looking proposition,” the studio decided to go the spinoff/reboot route.

- Earlier ideas for a reboot included a crossover with 21 Jump Street but Jump Street producer Neal Moritz refused to compromise on his cut of the profits and the plan fell through.

- The original script was good and that is why Hemsworth and Thompson signed on. But after Sony executive David Beaubaire, left last summer, F. Gary Gray and original MIB producer Walter Parkes, started fighting.
