Going into Super Bowl Li, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will have Patriots Nation on his side. He'll also have Hollywood heavyweights Mark Wahlberg, Ben Affleck, Chris Evans and others championing him in the hopes that the Patriots will snag their fifth Super Bowl win.
While he'll have many rooting him on, there are other football fanatics who give the quarterback flak daily, and will be rooting against him, hoping Matt Ryan and the Falcons will destroy the Patriots.

Controversy erupted in Russia on Wednesday as sci-fi thriller Rupture, starring Noomi Rapace, Peter Stormare and Michael Chiklis, was denied an exhibition license for its originally scheduled Thursday release date.

Back in February 2015, New Line Cinema announced they were developing a Shaft remake, with John Davis producing through his Davis Entertainment company. At the time, no writer or director had been attached to the project, but that has all changed. Today a new report claims that Tim Story is in negotiations to direct, from a script by Black-ish creator Kenya Barris and Alex Barnow. This report also confirms that the project will follow another relative of Richard Roundtree's original title character.
Deadline reports that New Line plans to "reinvigorate" the franchise by focusing this reboot on the son of John Shaft, who is navigating the murky area between law enforcement and organized crime in New York City. No specific plot details were revealed, but this format could potentially allow Richard Roundtree to return as John Shaft, and Samuel L. Jackson to also come back as his nephew, also named John Shaft. »
The original 1971 version starred Richard Roundtree as a smooth private detective who is hired by a drug lord to find his kidnapped daughter. The character became a pop culture icon and the theme song, written by Barry White, went on to win an Oscar.
New Line has since acquired the rights to the pic and revved up development after Barris pitched a new idea that excited execs. No meetings have taken place on who would play the titular role.
