It's (A)live! ‘Young Frankenstein’ Live Musical Set for ABC

Mel Brooks’ classic comedy-turned-Broadway show Young Frankenstein is about to become a live television musical, ABC announced Wednesday.

Casting and an air date will be announced later this year with a premiere in the fall. Young Frankenstein is ABC’s second live musical, following 2019’s The Little Mermaid.

Young Frankenstein Live will likely be based on the Broadway adaptation of the 1974 spoof.

The Broadway musical, which was nominated for three Tony Awards during its 13-month run was slightly altered for a revival staged on London’s West End in 2017.

Wiley vs. Stormzy; round 2

The whole of the UK’s grime scene has only one major conflict on
their mind right now, and that is Stormzy vs. Wiley. The godfather of Grime, first took blows at the current prince of british rap, by saying the latter wasn’t respectful of the artists who had come before him, and paved the way for Stormzy’s legendary status
in the UK. After sending for Stormzy on Sunday, which you can listen to here, and being destroyed in return, Wiley took aim again
Tuesday evening, with some choice words aimed at Stormzy’s mum.

-- Most BTS fans responded negatively and questioned Jungkook if Bieber asked him to post the tweet.
"Did bieber text u to tweet this???!!!" asked a fan. "this the first time i’m not gonna like a tweet from y’all," added another disappointed JK fan. "Even my love for you won't make me click that," added another fan.

Michael B Jordan is promoting his film Just Mercy

Summary of conversation [Spoiler (click to open)]
[Warning this was taped. Meghan is at the table, and everyone is wearing a different outfit vs Hot Topics. (Except Whoopi -but her hair is different).]

Plays clip. Whoopi talks about MBJ going back to his old hs in Newark. MBJ explains why he went and what he wanted to accomplish by doing that. MBJ is cagey about the next Black Panther because Marvel has everyone on lockdown. Since his character died, then it would be a huge spoiler. Sunny diverts to Just Mercy with Jamie Foxx. Gives summary of plot. MBJ said he didn’t know of this man before the film, then he got to know about him, feels it’s so important to today’s issues. Abby likes that he gets behind projects he feels passionate about. This film is important, about death row. MBJ talks about Jamie’s role. He still feels that (him being black) he lives by a different set of rules. With the film, he didn’t want to exploit emotion, but wanted it to be honest. Film got a standing ovation at TIFF but what was more amazing, at the Q&A people were asking what they could do to help.

MBJ is also a producer and used an inclusion rider on this film. MBJ talks about what is motivating him to do that. Explains what an inclusion rider is, references Frances McDormand awards speech. He’s been friends with JF for a long time, this is the first opportunity to work with him. Film opens tomorrow.

ONTD Original: Songs You Hear in a Movie That You’ll Always Remember

image host

When you’re watching a movie and you hear a song you had never heard before and can’t get it out of your head? Or hear a song during a particular or poignant scene and can’t forget the scene or the song. For me most of the movies on the list are movies I saw as a child and they have stuck with my older self. The songs on the list fit the criteria well.
Note: The songs that were chosen are only in the movie and NOT on the movies’ soundtrack.

‘Lizzie McGuire’ Creator Exits Showrunner Post on Disney Plus Revival

Terri Minsky, creator of the original show, has left.

“After filming two episodes, we concluded that we need to move in a different creative direction and are putting a new lens on the show.” - Faceless Disney Spokesperson.

The show is on Hiatus, though my Variety e-mail says the show 'is not longer moving forward', so we shall see.


‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ Director Drops Out

Cheryl Cole says she's looking for a sperm donor so she can have more children

Pop songstress Cheryl Cole wants more children. The “Call My Name” singer recently revealed in a new interview that she’s looking for a sperm donor.

Chezza, who has a 2-year-old son named Bear Grey Payne with ex-boyfriend Liam Payne, said she feels she is running out of time to find a partner and plans to have “more than one” child with fertility treatment.

“If time was on my side and I was in my twenties, yeah, I would wait and consider more options, or wait for somebody I felt was right,” she told The Times.

“You could meet somebody and for that year it feels incredible, but there is never a guarantee because there are so many variables that can happen. Life is a funny old game.”

Cheryl, who is from Newcastle, said she will get the sperm from “out of town.”

“You can get it from abroad,” she said.

“Do you imagine some guy from Newcastle saying, ‘That’s my child!?’” There’s a lot to choose from and a lot to think about.”

ONTD, would you want children as a single parent?
