The Hate U Give cast

If you’ve paid any attention to the young adult book market over the past couple of years, you’re probably familiar with The Hate U Give, author Angie Thomas‘s wildly popular best-seller about a young black woman who becomes an activist after seeing the police gun down her unarmed friend. It’s been a hit since it debuted in January of 2017, and Fox 2000 is adapting it into a movie.

After wrapping production last November, the movie has hit a slight bump in the road, and The Hate U Give cast is now being shaken up: a new report says the film’s male lead is being replaced after a controversial video of him surfaced online. Read More »

Dwayne Johnson Fast and Furious 9

The Candy Ass Saga continues. The bad blood between Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Vin Diesel is apparently so palpable that there’s a chance Johnson might be done with the main Fast & Furious franchise. Johnson is currently working on the Fast & Furious spin-off co-starring Jason Statham, but when asked if he might return for Furious 9, Johnson says he’s “not quite sure.”

Eric Bana Dirty John

Where has Eric Bana been lately? He had a small role in last year’s King Arthur: Legend of the Sword and starred in a Netflix movie opposite Ricky Gervais, but things have been sort of quiet for him since the days when he was headlining big budget action films.

But there’s good news for all the Banatics out there (that’s what diehard Eric Bana fans call themselves, right?): the Aussie actor has been cast in the title role in Dirty John, a TV adaptation of the popular podcast. Learn more about the Eric Bana Dirty John casting below. Read More »

adam sandler safdie brothers

Update: It’s official: Adam Sandler will star in Uncut Gems for the Safdie brothers and A24, Deadline reports. Our original story follows below.

For the past decade, Adam Sandler has made a name for himself as a goofball movie star who makes movies solely for the purpose of earning him a trip to Hawaii. But every now and then, we get reminded — hey, this guy is actually a great actor.

After giving a quietly stunning performance in last year’s The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), Sandler may be ready for a new creative comeback. Sandler is reportedly being eyed by the Safdie brothers for their follow-up film to Good Time. That’s right, an Adam Sandler Safdie brothers movie may soon be on its way.

Tracy Morgan What Men Want

Did you know Paramount is creating a new riff on Nancy Meyers’ romantic comedy What Women Want? This one is called What Men Want, and it stars Taraji P. Henson (Hidden Figures) in the lead role as a woman who can suddenly hear the thoughts of every man she comes in contact with. That already sounds a hundred times better than the original, which, if you’ll recall, starred Mel Gibson as a mind-reading womanizer. (History was not kind to that film.)

But now, the new movie has gained a hilarious new cast member: former Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan. Read about the new Tracy Morgan What Men Want character below.

Miranda July heist movie

Female-led heist films are officially a trend. With Ocean’s 8 and Widows coming up later this year, a third heist movie is now in the works from indie filmmaker Miranda July. The project is still untitled, but she’s managed to secure Evan Rachel Wood (Westworld) and Gina Rodriguez (Jane the Virgin) as two of her lead actors, and the idea of those two co-starring in a movie is almost enough to convince me to see it sight unseen. What’s that? Acclaimed character actor Richard Jenkins (The Shape of Water, Bone Tomahawk) is in this, too? Well, then count me in.
