'Welcome To Me'
Recently we learned that Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler would be teaming up again for another romantic comedy, and I was pretty excited about that. Some on-screen duos just make life happy, and I’m thrilled to report that another one is headed our way. After some talk, Kristen Wiig is now officially in the Anchorman sequel, but she and Will Ferrell also have a comedy of their own in the works. Click inside to learn more about Welcome To Me!
Coincidence or ...
So, there’s a new series on The History Channel that takes stories from the Bible and dramatizes them for entertainment … the show is aptly titled The Bible. For the past few weeks, The Bible has managed to drum up big ratings for the network … but last night, it drummed up a bit of controversy as well. Last night’s episode of The Bible featured the introduction of Satan on the show and many people believe the character was made to look like President Barack Obama. Representatives from The History Channel deny that they intentionally attempted to make the Devil look like President Obama but … well, take a look at a side-by-side comparison and see what you think.

But She Hasn't Been Approached Yet
A little while back I got super-psyched because we heard news about a sequel to the critically-acclaimed 2000 film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. I was a little/hugely bummed to hear that Ang Lee was not directing the sequel, but I also said that if some of the old cast members were on board I’d be totally down for it. Michelle Yeoh (who played Yu Shu Lien) is being honored at the Asian Film Awards tonight and she recently spoke out about her interest in the new movie. Click inside to learn more!
'How To Catch A Monster' Will Be Very 'Experimental'
Saoirse Ronan is doing seriously big, indie things. A little while back we learned that she got the lead in Wes Anderson‘s forthcoming Grand Budapest Hotel, and now we’re hearing that she nabbed a role in Ryan Gosling‘s highly-anticipated directorial debut, How To Catch A Monster. Oh, and right now she’s also in the not-so indie, but still big-deal-of a-film The Host. It’s a good time to be Saoirse, lol! Click inside to hear what she has to say about working with Ryan!
'Like really. For real.'
LMAO… I’ve never been on Emma Watson‘s Twitter before and now I’m all up in her feed. She’s hilarious! The other day rumors started swarming about that she was in the running for– or definitely, maybe playing– the lead role in the forthcoming Fifty Shades Of Grey movie. I kind of assumed there was no truth to rumors, and Emma has taken to Twitter to confirm my suspicions. Click inside to see how little interest she appears to have in this project, lol.
Move Over Charlton Heston
As we know, there are some major Hollywood movies in the works that are drawing on the Bible for inspiration. Darren Aronofsky‘s Noah project will be a huge deal, and Will Smith is working on a Cain and Able/vampire movie (yup) as well. Now we’re hearing talk about a movie on the life of Moses, and the one and only Christian Bale is in talks to play the lead. Click inside to learn more!

She'll Play A Member Of The 'Dauntless' Faction
Over the last few months we’ve been hearing some really exciting casting news about the movie Divergent. Many of you highly recommend the Young Adult series upon which the movie is based, and it looks like the beloved book is getting some serious Hollywood treatment. Shailene Woodley is playing the lead, and we even heard talk about Kate Winslet being involved. Now rising indie star Zoë Kravitz has snagged herself a role as well. Click inside to learn more!

This Could Be Sweet
Okay, so this is fun news. As y’all know, Mad Men is getting ready to come back to AMC for its highly-anticipated sixth season, and I am crazy excited. I’m still making my way through all the past seasons on Netflix, but, like many others, I’ve fallen in love with the show and… well, we all have our favorites. Elisabeth Moss AKA Peggy is my absolute favorite… like in that creepy way where I kinda/definitely know exactly what I’d say to her if I ever saw her on the street, lol. So I was really excited to hear that she’s been cast alongside Ted Danson (another one of my faves) in a new movie. Click inside to learn more!

"Maybe I'm not supposed to say that"
Over the past few weeks we’ve been hearing somewhat conflicting reports about the upcoming sequel film Star Wars: Episode VII. First we heard that Harrison Ford would probably be reprising his role as Han Solo in the film. Then we heard that Mark Hamill was in talks to reprise his role as Luke Skywalker in the film. Then Carrie Fisher revealed that she would be coming back as Princess Leia … and then a day later her PR person clarified that she was “just kidding” and no deal has been signed yet. Today we hear from George Lucas himself and he says, in no uncertain terms, that the Star Wars trio WILL appear in Episode VII … even tho the folks at Disney won’t confirm, he promises it’s going to happen.
