you havent heard or seen from me lately thats because I have been crawled up
in a little ball still trying to recover from the Patriots Super Bowl loss.
But as they say, the show must go on!
least the bright side of this week is it looks like the Writers Strike here in
Hollywood might finally be coming to
a close. Alright lets move on to this weeks Hollywood Shuffle!
Eminem was attached to Grand Theft
Auto – The Movie
According to various sources around Hollywood, a Grand Theft Auto Movie was pitched to Rockstar, the video game
producers, last spring with Eminem attached as the lead. Like other
best-selling video games such as Halo,
Grand Theft Auto is considered one of
the premiere projects for a movie studio to land but it has been met with
difficulty bringing to film.
major studio had actually made it to terms with Rockstar, but at the last
minute the project was terminated. To this day there still are no plans for a Grand Theft Auto movie. Eminem also has
had various projects with Paramount under his Shady/Aftermath Films banner
indefinitely postponed as well.
Tyra Banks messes herself at Fashion Week?
Im not sure how believable this one is, but I had to speak on it just for the entertainment
value. According to a blogger for Paper
Magazine named Fabian Basabe, he was set to do an interview with Tyra in
the W suite at the tents, when all of the sudden a crew barged in and kicked
him out because Tyra needed to change her clothes. According to Basabes blog:
“Tyra Banks messed
herself (crapped in her pants) and needed to change Now I would like to bring
to your attention that Tyra’s people carried a change of clothes for her at NYC
fashion week. Hmmmh… could it be that Tyra messed herself before?” Its
still a little hard to believe. Tyra might be a wig switcher but I doubt she
is a pants messer. Besides, one should never trust anyone named Fabian.
RZA to star in movie Repossession Mambo with Forest
might be having family issues but at least RZA is still doing his thing. Fresh
off the success of American Gangster,
RZA has joined the cast of the sci-fi thriller Repossession Mambo, which already has a stellar cast
including Jude Law, Forest Whitaker and Liev Schreiber. The movie is being
produced by the same team that worked on Jaime Foxx’s The Kingdom.
Set in the
near future, Repossession Mambo takes place when artificial organs can be bought on credit and revolves around
a music producer (RZA) who struggles to make the payments on a heart he has
purchased. He must therefore go on the run before organ repossession agents
(Law and Whitaker) catch him and “extract” his heart.
Jessica Alba only wants to speak Spanish to
her new born
very pregnant Jessica Alba recently spoke out about how she got shunned as a
child for not being able to speak Spanish. In order to prevent this from
happening to her future kids, Alba wants to only speak Spanish to her children,
and was quoted as saying, I dont even want them to speak English for maybe
the first two to three years, until pre-school. Were in the United
States so theyre going to learn it anyway. Good
plan Jessica too bad she still doesnt speak a lick of Spanish.
Will Smiths next
movie Seven Pounds
Will has wrapped up his upcoming super-hero comedy Hancock, he is quickly prepping for his next film, Seven Pounds. From the same director as The Pursuit of Happyness, Seven Pounds is
about suicidal IRS agent (Smith) who sets out to make amends by assuming the
identity of his younger brother. His plans get complicated when he
inadvertently falls in love. The movie also stars Rosario Dawson as the love
interest, Woody Harrelson and Michael Ealy. Filming starts in March, with it
due out in theaters December 12, 2008.
what happened to Malcolm Jamal Warner
people will ask that random question of Where is Theo? We all know what Rudy
has been up to being hot . but Theo played by Malcolm Jamal Warner has been
MIA. Now, if you dare, go watch the Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson movie Fools Gold – then you will get the answer to that question. Warner’s
role is as a Rastafarian henchman, and although it’s not a big role, at least
we know he is still around.
Eddie Murphy stars in
new movie Starship Dave
from all the positive feedback I got back about Norbit and all the Eddie lovers out there, I felt its time for us to introduce the next Eddie
Murphy-as-a-bunch-of-characters movie Starship
Dave. The story line sounds a little crazy, but if anyone can pull it off
Starship Dave, a crew of miniature
aliens (the head alien is played by Murphy) operate a spaceship that has a
human form (played by Murphy hope this makes sense). While trying to save their
planet, the aliens encounter a new problem as their ship becomes smitten with
an Earth woman. Expect Eddie at this best when this one comes out May 30, 2008.
