Gellar holds a 'Grudge' with role in sequel

8 December 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Sarah Michelle Gellar has signed on to reprise her role -- albeit briefly -- in the horror sequel The Grudge 2 for Columbia Pictures and Ghost House Pictures. Gellar will return to pass the supernatural curse -- introduced in the first installation -- on to the franchise's next lead victim, an actor to be cast soon. Director Takashi Shimizu, scribe Stephen Susco and producers Sam Raimi, Robert Tapert and Taka Ichise also are on board for the sequel. "The union of Sarah's innocent girl-next-door persona and Shimizu's twisted Eastern perspective should spawn another original and terrifying tale for the audience," Raimi said. »

Prinze Jr.'s "Cracked Rib" Is Pain From Over-Eating

12 October 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Freddie Prinze Jr. has stepped forward to sheepishly disclose that the pain he recently described as a "cracked rib" is actually just discomfort from eating too much Chinese food. Last week, the actor, married to his Scooby-Doo co-star Sarah Michelle Gellar, claimed he got out of bed in New York City with a mysteriously cracked rib. But he now admits that over-indulgence at one of his favorite restaurants is more likely the cause of his pain. He says, "(My rib) is not cracked. It's officially torn muscles between two ribs. I ate a lot and my stomach was a little upset and I went to bed and I woke up the next day and I felt like I broke a rib. (I ate) a lot of Chinese food. My favorite little place in New York is a place called Chun Lee and they have a lot of food and I ate all of it. It hurts really bad. They gave me Vicodin, but I can't take too much of that because I have to work. So they gave me these anti-inflammatories, but they make me throw up, which tears the muscle more, so it's not really that helpful." »

Berry bolts WMA over New Yorker article

18 March 2005 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Halle Berry has exited WMA, nearly 18 months after signing with the agency. It is understood that Berry's exit was prompted in part by a lengthy profile of her agent, WMA president Dave Wirtschafter, featured in the current issue of the New Yorker. In the article, Wirtschafter discusses with writer Tad Friend his rationale for negotiating a feature deal for Berry in which he proposed that the actress agree to lower her salary in exchange for a cut of the film's profits. Other comments attributed to Wirtschafter in the profile are said to have prompted Sarah Michelle Gellar's departure from WMA this week. On Thursday, Wirtschafter sent an email to WMA staffers saying that he "never intended to harm any of our colleagues or our clients" and that he wanted to "apologize for any hurt that has stemmed from it." »
