The Alien: Convenant director said he recognized a shift in the Hollywood landscape as soon as the Harvey Weinstein allegations came out, and decided when accusations against Spacey were revealed, he had to move fast.

"I knew as soon as they hit Kevin it was going to blow wide open and I contacted my partners and said, 'We should recast this right now. We shoot right now, we'll be out the

Mark Wahlberg Is 2017's Most Overpaid Movie Star

Mark Wahlberg Is 2017's Most Overpaid Movie Star
It hasn't been the best year for Mark Wahlberg, with his two 2017 movies Transformers: The Last Knight and Daddy's Home 2 both coming in well under expectations, and thanks to his 2016 bombs, he has been named the most overpaid actor of 2017. This comes just a few months after Mark Wahlberg was named the highest-paid actor of 2017, earning a massive $68 million from a variety of sources including salaries from both aforementioned movies, along with his reality series Wahlburgers and his deal as a spokesperson for At&T. It seems that the actor could be set up to "win" this title two years in a row, since this report doesn't even include Transformers: The Last Knight or Daddy's Home 2 in its methodology.

The report from Forbes reveals that to determine the "most overpaid actor," they looked at the last three films each actor starred in, prior to June 1, 2017, excluding "animated films,

Dwayne Johnson’s Busy Slate

Dwayne Johnson’s Busy Slate
One of the most in-demand actors in the biz, Dwayne Johnson’s slate begs the question, “How does he have the time?”

This past year, Johnson had starring roles in three major films, including the box office smash “The Fate of the Furious,” and he’s not slowing down. His IMDb page boasts more than 10 titles with projects ranging from his own “Fast & Furious” spinoff to the development of a “San Andreas” sequel to a rumored role in the “Suicide Squad” sequel.

One of Johnson’s biggest recent successes was Disney’s “Moana,” which became one of the year’s top-grossing films of the year, with more than $640 million at the box office. So it makes sense for sequel rumors to begin swirling.

“I am only interested in a ‘Moana’ sequel if the entire movie is solely based on my character Maui and that he has no friends except his tattoos and loves singing Lin-Manuel Miranda songs
