Empire Series Finale

This spring was meant to see the sixth and final season of Empire come to a close. The music biz series starring Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard would have ended with the 20th episode this season, but thanks to the coronavirus pandemic shutting down production on the show earlier than planned, the series finale will also arrive ahead of schedule, and it will cut the series a little short.

Coffee and Kareem Trailer

Coffee and Kareem appeared on the Black List in 2014, a collection of the best unproduced screenplays that are kicking around Hollywood and looking to get made.

Now the first Coffee and Kareem trailer has arrived, and we get to meet Terrence Little Gardenhigh, the foul-mouthed kid being paired with Ed Helms, and they look like they’re going to make a hilarious duo.

Coffee and Kareem

Every year the Black List names the best unproduced screenplays that are still being kicked around Hollywood, just waiting for a greenlight to go into production. One of the scripts that made the cut on the lower end of the list in 2014 was a crime comedy called Coffee and Kareem that teams up a cop with his girlfriend’s kid (for some reason) to help take down a ruthless drug lord. Now the project has a home at Netflix and a surprising comedic duo to lead it.

Ed Helms and Taraji P. Henson have signed on to star in Coffee and Kareem, a pairing that sounds like it was done in the same manner in which you might pull names from a hat for Secret Santa. Read More »

what men want review

From the get-go, What Men Want feels like a relic. Even though it follows the current trend of gender-bent remakes, flipping a previously male-led film into one starring a female character, What Men Want astonishingly feels even more backwards than the 2000 Nancy Meyers film upon which it’s based. For a film that touts female empowerment and regularly throws around mentions to the “Me Too” movement, What Men Want is a shallow, retrograde workplace comedy that is barely funny.

Remember the 2000 Nancy Meyers comedy What Women Want, starring Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt? It now has a remake, with a twist. What Men Want finds Taraji P. Henson suddenly able to read men’s thoughts, with predictably amusing results. Watch the What Men Want trailer below.

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.

All it takes is a cursory glance at the news to know America still has a long way to go in our ongoing reckoning with our country’s racial history. But one way to help heal the wounds of the past is to provide people with knowledge and perspective, and that’s exactly what producer/star Taraji P. Henson (Hidden Figures) and director John Singleton plan to do. The duo is uniting to make a biopic about Emmett Till, the 14-year-old boy who was tortured and murdered in Mississippi in 1955.
