24 Movie Is Halted
If you were a Jack Bauer fan from the series 24 and awaiting the big screen movie, you might just want to take a seat. Deadline has reported that the script has been finalized but top executives at Fox are not too convinced of making the movie. Keifer Sutherland is currently taping a television series and they don’t think he would have enough time to do the movie during his summer hiatus. There is also no director attached to the movie, so I guess we will have to resort to living in a world without Jack Bauer to save us.
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis don’t have to fake it
Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis will not have to fake being in a relationship in their next movie. The real-life couple have been attached to star in the comedy Relanxious, where a couple of mentally ill characters find love and are forced to carry a relationship over the phone. Also attached to the rom-com are Brie Larson, who will play Olivia’s sister, and SNL’s Fred Armisen.
Carlos Ponce will be a teen idol
Telenovela star Carlos Ponce will be an idol on the first ever Nick at Nite soap, Hollywood Heights. The soap is an adaptation of Mexican telenovela Alcanzar Una Estrella about a young hopeful who dreams of stardom. The young girl will be played by Brittany Underwood, whose character, Loren, submits musical lyrics to a songwriting competition sponsored by her idol, Eddie Wild. When she wins the contest she gets to meet Eddie on a personal level, having all the things she dreamt about become a reality. Things take a spin when Eddie’s two-timing girlfriend is exposed and suddenly he starts seeing Loren as more than a friend.
Charlize Theron Adopts
Monster Ball actress, Charlize Theron, has adopted a baby boy. The also Oscar-winning actress “is the proud mom of a healthy baby boy named Jackson,” a rep told Just Jared. Not much has been heard of Charlize Theron but she does have two films coming out this year, Prometheus and Snow White and The Huntsman, which is a much darker take of the “Brother’s Grimm” fairy tale as we are accustomed to.
