Hot on the heels of word that Paramount is reworking its planned sequel to the fantasy film "Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters" into a TV series, ABC is reportedly looking at doing a TV series sequel to the popular Julia Roberts romantic comedy "My Best Friend's Wedding".
ABC has signed on for a script commitment plus penalty for the project which would pick up right where the events of the 1997 movie left off. Roberts' character Julianne will be in New York City living life and still getting advice from her gay pal George.
Ron Bass and Jessica Amento are writing the script for the follow-up while original producers Jerry and Janet Zucker will be back to executive produce alongside Bass and Mike Menchel. Roberts, Dermot Mulroney, Rupert Everett and Cameron Diaz are not expected to reprise their roles.
This continues a hot trend this past season which saw both TV »

We're officially living in an age where just about any movie can receive its own TV spinoff. The latest target: My Best Friend's Wedding.
Picking up where the movie left off, it will centre on Jullianne Potter as she moves on with her life in New York City alongside best friend George - played by Rupert Everett in the film.
It has yet to be confirmed whether this means it will take place in the 1990s or will shift the action to the present day. Roberts and Everett are also unlikely to return, but who knows?
The Julia Roberts rom-com classic My Best Friend's Wedding is getting the old TV reboot. THR reports that ABC is developing an adaptation with the movie's original writer and producer: Ron Bass is writing the script with Jessica Amento, and Jerry Zucker will serve as executive producer alongside Janet Zucker and Mike Menchel. The show will take place right after the film's titular wedding, following a bruised Julianne Potter (played by Julia, duh) as she returns to New York with her gay best friend George (played by Rupert Everett). We're already casting young Julia Robertses and Rupert Everetts in our heads — Karen Gillan and Matthew Lewis, get your agents on the phone. »

Time to cue up your copy of "I Say a Little Prayer" and get ready to sing along, because we have some truly amazing news for you: ABC is developing a TV show based on the seminal Julia Roberts classic My Best Friend's Wedding. The network is working with the producers behind the original movie to create a single-camera comedy that will pick up where the movie left off, E! News has confirmed. The show will follow Roberts' character, Julianne Potter, navigating her life in New York City with Bff George (a.k.a. Rupert Everett's character) as her guide. While this sounds like it could be either the best or worst idea ever, this should let you exhale a little bit: My Best Friend's Wedding will be »
The reformed draft budget will now be put to vote at the European Parliament.
Members of the European Parliament’s Budget Committee voted this morning (Tuesday) to reverse cuts to Creative Europe’s budget for 2016 as proposed by the European Council.
Voting on the motion for resolution concerning the European Commission’s 2016 draft budget, the MEPs passed an amendment tabled by deputy Jean-Paul Denanot, calling for an increase by $12m (€10.5m) for Creative Europe’s Culture and Media sub-programmes, including the multimedia actions and the Cultural and Creative Sectors Guarantee Facility, which is planned to start operating from next year.
According to Denanot, this increase is deemed “necessary” given the programmes’ “important role in supporting cultural and creative industries that represent key European values.”
The MEPs’ budgetary amendments and the accompanying resolution for the 2016 draft budget will now be put to the plenary vote at the European Parliament later this month.

Cara Delevingne has hit out at ''perverse'' photographers who ''misuse'' models. The 22-year-old superstar started modelling at the age of 17 quickly becoming one the most sought after muse's in fashion but she claims she was exposed to the darker side of the industry early on. Cara was shocked by how many photographers were only involved in the industry as a means to meet women. Speaking to Rupert Everett at the Women in the World Summit in London, she said: ''The thing with models is you get used. I saw a lot of misuse from photographers, perverse photographers, to young girls ... A lot of straight photographers only do this because they want to sleep with models ... Poor girls who don't stand up for themselves because they feel like you should be used, because that's what models do.'' Now Cara is established as one of the world's most influential models and »
Matt Damon is clarifying that he does Not think gay actors must remain in the closet to better their careers.
Social media was abuzz with sarcastic claims of 'Damonsplaining' on Monday (September 28) for an interview in which Damon appeared to encourage actors to keep their "sexuality" out of the public eye.
"When Ben [Affleck] and I first came on the scene there were rumours that we were gay because it was two guys who wrote a script together," he told The Guardian. "[It] put us in a weird position of having to answer, you know what I mean?
"Which was then really deeply offensive. I don't want to, like [imply] it's some sort of disease – then it's like I'm throwing my friends under the bus.
"But at the time, I remember thinking and saying, Rupert Everett was openly gay and this guy – more handsome than anybody, a classically trained actor – it's tough to »
In an interview with The Guardian this weekend, Matt Damon wandered into two showbiz controversies at the same time. After reflecting on his experience fielding questions about his relationship with Ben Affleck during the Good Will Hunting era — "It put us in a weird position of having to answer [whether we were gay], which was then really deeply offensive. I don’t want to, like [imply] it's some sort of disease" — Damon then turned to the subject of actors' private lives, a hot topic thanks to Tom Hardy's recent refusal to answer questions about his sexuality. "It must be really hard for actors to be out publicly," Damon told the British paper, echoing Rupert Everett's assertion that being out hurt his career. "But in terms of actors, I think you’re a better actor the less people know about you period. And sexuality is a huge part of that. Whether »

In an interview with The Guardian, Matt Damon managed to say a lot of discouraging stuff about the lives and careers of gay actors in just a couple of quotes. Here's the first dubious moment. "I think you’re a better actor the less people know about you period. And sexuality is a huge part of that. Whether you’re straight or gay, people shouldn’t know anything about your sexuality because that’s one of the mysteries that you should be able to play.'" And here's the second, a strange review of out actor Rupert Everett's recent career. "I remember thinking and saying, Rupert Everett was openly gay and this guy — more handsome than anybody, a classically trained actor — it’s tough to make the argument that he didn’t take a hit for being out." It's only been a couple of weeks since the term "Damonsplaining »

Matt Damon's having a moment, and it doesn't seem like it's a good one. Whenever an actor has a new project coming out, they're automatically in the hot seat, and you'd better believe there is a small army hard at work trying to make sure that nothing happens during that press tour that might impact the overall success of the film. Add in a new TV show that's rolling out the same time as the movie is being released, and you have so many more opportunities for the actor to hang themselves, particularly in the atmosphere of constantly-simmering outrage that exists right now. Damon has never been one to keep his opinion to himself, and it was interesting watching a moment from "Project Greenlight" blow up in his face, especially since he's part of the producing team that is responsible for the show. He could have had that moment »

This post originally ran in April 2015. We are rerunning it with the theatrical release of Sleeping With Other People this weekend. Leslye Headland grabs the remote and rewinds. "Wait, something is really interesting here," she says, "because I think they may have used the F-word. It’s huge!" We're watching the beloved yet divisive 1997 rom-com classic My Best Friend’s Wedding, and Headland is right: Julia Roberts (as lovelorn protagonist Julianne) dropped the expletive while explaining why her friend George (Rupert Everett) — now posing as her fiancé — has swooped down to accompany her to the big wedding. “He just came in for a few hours," said Julianne, "to, uh, fuck me.” We scream. What we have here is not just an F-bomb, but the kind that implies actual sex. It's all a little bit scandalous — not that Headland should be blushing, since her films aren't afraid of F-bombs in »

Tim Burton is at the helm of the big-screen version of Ransom Riggs's novel Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children, so you know that means it's going to be insane. The first teaser for the film, however, is a surprisingly subtle nod to Loop Day, a "holiday" which takes place on Sept. 3 in the book. For anyone who has read it, this is a great little Easter Egg. Everyone else, wait for the full trailer. Asa Butterfield, Eva Green, Allison Janney, Rupert Everett, Kim Dickens, Judi Dench, and Samuel L. Jackson all star in the movie, out on March 4, 2016. »
The first teaser trailer has been released for Tim Burton's "Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children" but funnily enough doesn't include any actual footage from the movie. Instead, the clip ties in to the film's story and the Ransom Riggs novel upon which the movie is based.

While September 3 may seem like any ordinary day for most people, it holds special significance for fans of Ransom Riggs' beloved novel Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. In the book, September 3 is "Loop Day," so 20th Century Fox put a new video together to celebrate this occasion, in honor of the upcoming adaptation that hits theaters on March 4, 2016. This video comes just a few months after director Tim Burton shared the official title treatment.
In the original novel, Miss Peregrine's home is situated in a time loop in September 3, 1940, with the clocks resetting every day just before her island home was bombed by German forces. The video below may be confusing without this context, but there is certainly a method behind its bizarre madness. This video doesn't include any actual footage from the movie, but hopefully the first trailer will arrive any day now.
