    An Unpublished Laura Ziskin Interview

    I have no idea why this interview was not published by The Hollywood Reporter, but it wasn't. This interview was conducted last September and has some really good points about women and the business. Several people commented on the blog about how in Laura Ziskin's obituary, the NY Times said that her daughter Julia was "dragged" to sets. Guess that all that dragging did some good and didn't ruin her life since her daughter Julia not only went into the business, but worked directly with her mom.

    David Chappelle Planning New TV Series With Paid Subscription Service

    The beloved comic is planning a new TV show with a paid subscription service like Netflix, Sony’s Crackle, or Hulu, which are now competing in the original programming game, a plugged-in source told Flash... More recently, Chappelle has been dropping by comedy clubs from Los Angeles to San Francisco for surprise standup gigs, calling himself the “Big Foot of Comedy” because “you never know when he’s going to show up”... A source at Hollywood’s Laugh Factory said Chappelle has been trying out fresh material: “It’s all new. He started off talking about his career and what he’s going to do now, because someone like him can’t do ‘Dancing with the Stars.’ He’s obviously working on some new project.”

    Watch: Red Band Trailer For 'Attack The Block,' Believe It

    While J.J. Abrams proved you could hold back the steak at the monster movie BBQ and still bring in fans, when you're a much smaller-budgeted Brit alien invasion flick with even smaller names leading the cast, you gotta do whatever you can to get people out. So while some may whine that the new red band trailer for "Attack The Block" shows far too much, just remember they are trying to get people to see a movie that, outside of geek circles and those lucky enough to see the film already, nobody has ever heard of.

    Snoop Dogg To Score Nick Cassavetes' Rick Ross Biopic

    With Nick Cassavetes bailing on the gestating "Gotti: Three Generations" film to finish up his indie production "Yellow," if everything goes according to plan he'll likely be moving on to direct the Rick Ross biopic announced earlier this year. The film will tell the story of Ross' early days as a crack cocaine dealer in Los Angeles during the 1980s. Apparently, Ross was a major player slinging up to 100 kg of the stuff per day and he claims that he was supplied by Contras who were fighting the Nicaraguan government at the time; yep, those same Contras that were funded by officials in Ronald Reagan’s administration. And a man who is no stranger to "the game" will be tuning up the movie.

    Absolutely Insane Footage From Vancouver After Canucks Lost Stanley Cup

    I still can't get over how insane things got last night after Vancouver lost. 140 people in the hospital? Multiple STABBINGS!? It's a fucking hockey game, but somehow it resulted in turning a generally calm city into an absolute warzone. First world fucking problems, people.

    Goldie Hawn to HBO

    It looks like another leading lady of the screen is heading to the tube. Darren Star (Sex and the City) is adapting the book The Viagra Diaries by Barbara Rose Brooker as a starring vehicle for Goldie Hawn. Hawn hasn't been on the big screen in a decade and it's seriously about time that we get to see her again. She's too good and too funny to just disappear from our lives.
