So what do you get when you combine the front man from 90s rap metal Limp Bizkit with the Icelandic art-house drama Metalhead? Frankly, we don't know, but if Fred Durst has his way, he could be heading up a remake of Metalhead before we know it. The news item states, "According to Davíð Óskar Ólafsson, one of the producers, Durst connected with the film. He grew up in the American countryside, with heavy metal and experienced many of the same things and as the main character in the film when her relative dies in an accident."Somebody has been doing a lot of inner reflection and talking about his feelings lately. It was just announced last week that Durst is developing a drama for The CW called...

Did you ever get so excited by a primetime network broadcast that you wanted to pick up your TV set and hurl it against a wall* — the way a heavy-metal guitarist in the throes of an arena encore might destroy his instrument to the cheers and whistles of the crowd? (*If your answer is “no,” just ride this recap out till the end of the next paragraph, Ok?)
That insane urge swelled up inside me during tonight’s installment of The Voice‘s Season 5 Live Playoffs, prompted by the perfect storm of a fine but somewhat sleepy opening 100 minutes, followed »

Titled The Noise, the show will chronicle the rise of a young artist in the 1990s who escapes a tumultuous home life and forms a wildly popular band with a unique sound. Durst will serve as co-executive producer on the script with Miles Feld writing. This is the second time Durst has tried to develop a series based on his life. CBS and Durst developed the sitcom Douchebag two years ago but it never went on to be a series.
Fred Durst is most known as the lead singer in the rock/rap band Limp Bizkit. They gained instant popularity with their singles "Nookie" and "Rollin'." Since then Durst has tried his hand in directing. He directed the »
Fred Durst will soon be the inspiration behind his own television series. The Limp Bizkit frontman is developing an hour-long drama with The CW based on his life, according to TV Guide. The Noise will tell the story and "chronicles the rise of a young artist in the 1990's who escapes a tumultuous home life and forms a wildly popular band with a unique sound." Sound familiar? Durst is known for his days with the Nu-metal band, which formed in 1994 and is known for their smash hits "Nookie," "Rollin" and their cover of George Michael's "Faith." The band released the music video for their latest tune, "Ready to Go," featuring Lil Wayne, in July and »
To go along with the sexy vampires, sexy demon hunters, sexy superheroes and sexy Medieval Times extras, the CW is now developing a drama based on the life of Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst, reports TV Guide.
The drama, called "The Noise," will follow the rise of a musician in the 1990s as he leaves a bad home situation and forms a band that becomes immensely popular. Durst will act as co-executive producer on the script with Miles Feld writing. Eric and Kim Tannenbaum, the producing team behind "Two and a Half Men," are executive producers.
This will be the second stab at a show about Durst's life, as back in 2011, the Tannenbaums and CBS developed the sitcom "Douchebag," about a rock star trying to balance his work life with a family. »
Eminem fans were treated to an early Halloween surprise on Oct. 29 when Slim Shady’s newest album, ‘The Marshall Mathers LP 2′, leaked six days before its official release date. Packed full of introspective lyrics, energetic collaborations, and both hip-hop and classic rock throwbacks, ‘MMLP2′ proves that Em’s legacy is still as powerful as ever.
It’s been over 13 years since Eminem, 41, released his Grammy Award winning standout album The Marshall Mathers LP. Packed with a mix of hits including “The Real Slim Shady” and — arguably Em’s most famous hit — “Stan,” Mmlp has long since earned its spot in the Eminem canon as one of the greats. So naturally, calling an album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is going to lead to a lot of hype and pressure for the tow-headed star. Luckily, HollywoodLife can confirm that MMLP2 — a true return to form for the megastar — more than delivers.

Recognizing that the tale of Fred Durst is too layered and complex to be conveyed merely through song, particularly if it’s a Fred Durst song, the Limp Bizkit frontman has repeatedly sought to tell it through the medium of television, where the chocolate starfish of inspiration meets the hotdog flavored water of creative sustenance. First came the CBS project Douchebag, in which Durst would have starred in an autobiographical sitcom based on his life story as a “rock legend” that he tells himself every morning, while placing yet another backwards ball cap over his bald, 43-year-old pate. Now, after »
Limp Bizkit guy Fred Durst is developing an autobiographical drama for the CW. According to TV Guide, the show is called The Noise, and it "chronicles the rise of a young artist in the 1990s who escapes a tumultuous home life and forms a wildly popular band with a unique sound." Ah yes, a "unique sound," that is definitely one way to describe Limp Bizkit. This is not Durst's first time at the rodeo: Back in 2011, he was working on an autobiographical CBS sitcom called Douchebag. Really! Hard to believe that didn't go anywhere. »

We are less than a week away from the release of WWE 2K14 this Friday in the UK (November 1st.) Recently I have been slowly making my way through all the WWE games in history starting back in the 80s and gradually making it to WWE2K14. If you missed them, you can view parts 1 and 2 Here and Here, and get yourself up to date. If you’ve been with me all the way thus far, then lets pick up where we left off at the beginning of the PS2 years of wrestling game dominance.
WWF Smackdown! Just Bring It (Ps2) 2001
Just Bring It was the third game in the Smackdown series and the first to see a release on the PlayStation 2. Again, Thq and Yukes teamed up to put the game together and build on the basic groundwork that the first two Smackdown games laid down. Fans were expectant »

Someone at a party recently asked if I was into rock ‘n’ roll. A simple question one might think, however this one kind of caught me completely off guard. The first thing that jumped into my head was “Yes, of course, duhhh” – but what I actually said was “Errrrr….yeah….I guess”.
Why the confusion? Well, I grew up on a very diverse diet which in the early years included the likes of Michael Jackson, Nirvana, Metallica and Oasis. My teenage years saw my tastes move firmly into Nu-metal territory, with bands such as Korn, Deftones and Limp Bizkit going round and round on the Sony Discman. From there I’ve graduated from obsessing over one specific genre and, like most adults these days, now I listen to whatever sounds good, whether it be dubstep, jazz fusion, punk rock or global soul.
But am I fan of rock ‘n’ roll? »

A whole mess of factors goes into what projects a director takes on. A young up-and-comer might be happy just to get his first directing credit, regardless of what it might actually be about. A director who's been around the block might pick up a project way outside of their wheelhouse just for the experience. And the promise of a couple bucks doesn't hurt, either.
In other words, sometimes you just can't pin a filmmaker down. Here are some rather odd and unexpected director-movie pairings.
Between "12 Angry Men," "Network," "Dog Day Afternoon" and "Serpico," it's fair to call the late Sidney Lumet an all-time great. But considering most of Lumet's career was dedicated to crime and drama, "The Wiz," a musical "The Wizard of Oz" adaptation set in Harlem (and, later, Oz), is a definite oddball in his canon. Starring such powerhouses of African-American culture as Michael Jackson, »

It's the strangest collision of worlds since "Accidental Racist" took the internet by storm. Billy Ray Cyrus, who the kids know as Miley Cyrus' dad, appeared on "The Arsenio Hall Show" to perform the song "Lately" and was joined by Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst. Really.
Cyrus handled most of the song himself before Durst popped up at the end to throw in a verse. Why Fred Durst? No one can possibly answer that question. However, he stuck around after the song, as well.
Arsenio got Billy Ray to play "Achy Breaky Heart" for the audience before calling it a night, but there's no room for Durst in that one. So he just danced around in the back and hit the drum randomly, like anyone who doesn't belong on a stage would do.
Stay relevant, Fred. Check out the performances below:

You'd think if Billy Ray Cyrus was looking to collaborate with someone, he'd choose a fellow country star, or heck, maybe take a page out of Miley's playbook and give Robin Thicke a call. But no, the "Achy Breaky Heart" crooner dialed up Fred Durst—the rap-rocker best known for fronting Nu-metal band Limp Bizkit and writing songs like "Nookie" and "Rollin'"—and invited him to perform his Creed-sounding song "Lately" with him on The Arsenio Hall Show Thursday, Oct. 3. It's probably the most cringe-worthy unusual pairing since the trainwreck that was Fred performing with Christina Aguilera at the 2000 MTV VMAs. And keep an ear out for the Miley »
;Talk about random!Billy Ray Cyrus is taking notes from his daughter Miley Cyrus -- he's experimenting with his image! The "Achy Breaky Heart" singer shared the stage with Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst on Thursday for a live performance of Billy Ray's "Lately" on "The Arsenio Hall Show." We haven't seen Billy Ray perform live in a while ... and the fact that he's collaborating with Durst now just seems strange. Check out their performance of "Lately" above!While the idea of the musicians collaborating together doesn't sit quite right with us, they actually sound pretty great together.

Earlier this year it was announced that Cash Money Records had signed former search engine result Paris Hilton, news that—in addition to the signing of, and subsequent releasing of a song and video by, Limp Bizkit—suggests that Cash Money Records is dying of cancer, and is determined to do as much evil as it can in the short time it has left. Today came the first volley in that malevolent campaign in the form of a video teaser for “Good Time,” a song in which the wealthy bikini person writhes around in a pool of what is presumably »
Every week, EW will imagine a sequel to a movie that we wish would happen — no matter how unlikely the idea really is.
Before I begin, I want to really emphasize the last eight words of the “There Should Be a Sequel” rubric: no matter how unlikely the idea really is. The possibility of a Crossroads sequel is a sky-high impossibility. Released in February 2002, the film was essentially a feature-length advertisement for Britney Spears at what was — in cruel hindsight — the peak of her golden age. (She broke up with Justin Timberlake that summer; her next album, In the Zone, »
