The former Stone Temple Pilots singer took to Facebook to assure fans and prove to the world that he wasn't in jail on drug charges.
Sometimes, you simply don't know what to believe!
TMZ reported recently that former Stone Temple Pilots frontman Scott Weiland had spent the last few weeks in jail after being charged with possession of methamphetamine. According to the article, the Beverly Hills Police picked him up for shoplifting, and then found the drugs.
This, however, was news to Weiland, who took to his Facebook page to tell the world that he was not, in any way, currently incarcerated. In the video, Weiland is in a recording studio with members of his band The Wildabout.

Sony Pictures Entertainment announced today Shane Black will direct the film adaptation of the popular adventure book series The Destroyer by Warren Murphy. Penning the screenplay are Jim Uhls (Fight Club) and James Mullaney; Mullaney co-authored and became the sole writer of The Destroyer until the series’ end in 2008. Charles Roven, Steven Chasman, and Andy Horwitz will produce. Michael De Luca and Lauren Abrahams will oversee for Sony Pictures Entertainment.
The Destroyer is based on the series of paperback novels in which Newark cop Remo Williams is framed, sentenced to death, then resurrected following a botched execution. The reason? To serve as enforcement arm for Cure, a top-secret, extra-Constitutional arm of the U.S. government. Along with a seemingly ageless – and often hilarious – Asian assassin known only as Chiun, Williams sets out to "clean up" and take out those who oppose America’s interests. The surprisingly-heartfelt stories combine edgy old-school »

Comic book movies are some of the hottest properties in Hollywood right now. The Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Amazing Spider-Man franchise, Fox’s X-Men (and soon to be Fantastic Four) continuity, Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and the new DC Cinematic Universe all include films that have grossed hundreds of millions – and even billions in some cases – of dollars in recent years.
As a result, comic book movies have become a genre with a good reputation. Huge, top class and award winning actors, including the likes of Robert Downey, Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Andrew Garfield, Chris Cooper, Sir Ian McKellen, Sir Patrick Stewart, Jamie Bell, Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Ben Affleck and Amy Adams, have signed on for roles in them – something that would have been unheard of as recently as twenty or so years ago.
However, the genre could have looked so different and could have taken such a »

With the Doctor Who series 8 opener coming to cinemas tomorrow night, Mark asks whether more TV could be screened as cinematic events...
If you're a Doctor Who fan lucky enough to see 50th anniversary episode The Day Of The Doctor in a cinema last November, you probably saw it the way it was meant to be seen. With a giant “Woo” moment coming approximately every ten minutes, it has the air of a story that is too big for your living room. It may still have been a feature-length episode, but it's one that was meant to be watched surrounded by other fans.
That one worked out pretty well for BBC Worldwide - the special screenings took £6m globally in its opening weekend. That's not bad considering it only showed on Saturday evening and Sunday morning in most cinemas. Having proven a viable strategy, the BBC are doing the same »
No matter how the final product turns out, one thing is for certain: Paul Thomas Anderson’s adaptation of Inherent Vice will be one for the ages. It is the first adaptation of a Thomas Pynchon novel to come to the big screen, an accolade hardly diminished by the fact that Inherent Vice is the author’s most accessible and linear book to date. What’s more, the film is done by one of two contemporary directors best suited to produce a faithful and interesting version of Pynchon’s brilliantly meandering pastiche of detective fiction.
Inherent Vice features Joaquin Phoenix in the lead role of “Doc” Sportello, a pot-head private detective who investigates the disappearance of an ex-girlfriend in the midst of 1971 Los Angeles. In the process of investigating her disappearance, Sportello runs into any number of underworld characters, including badass police officer Bigfoot Bjornsen (Josh Brolin), and a lawyer named Sauncho Smilax, »

Even though scripts play an incredibly important part of the movie making process, sometimes a little improvisation is just what a movie scene needs to take it from good to great. CineFix has put together a fantastic video that highlights the 10 greatest improvised scenes in film history. I think they did a great job putting this together, and I can't think of anything that I would add to it. Check it out! I've included the list of films mentioned in the video below.

Marlon Brando’s performance as Col Kurtz was largely made up on the spot. And while we don’t endorse actors not learning their lines, we can’t fault what came of it in this instance… »

Yesterday marked the first day of principal photography for Ant-Man. If I’m to be honest, I’m still a bit bummed that Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish have left the project. I think their take on the Marvel Universe could have been one akin to James Gunn’s approach to Guardians of the Galaxy. Alas, we are still getting an Ant-Man film and the casting is pretty great. We also have a look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang Aka Ant-Man.
From the Press Release
San Francisco, California (August, 18, 2014) – Marvel Studios began principal photography today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise Marvel’s Ant-Man. The film brings one of Marvel comics’ original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production also shoots on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production.
