Plane Crash Near Tom Cruise's 'Mena' Set Claims Two Lives
Tom Cruise's latest film Mena has been in production since late May in Colombia, with Universal Pictures setting a January 6, 2017 release date. Deadline reports that tragedy struck the set last night, as a small plane crashed near the Medellin, Colombia set, claiming the lives of two crew members. A third passenger who was aboard the twin-engine Aerostar plane survived the crash, but none of the victims have been identified.

Sources confirmed to Deadline that star Tom Cruise and director Doug Liman were not on the plane, since they had both just wrapped a scene when the crash took place. The director is said to be very shaken up over the deaths. The plane was heading to Enrique Olaya Herrera Airport in Medellin when the crash occurred.

Legendary Settles ‘Godzilla’ Producers Lawsuit

Legendary Settles ‘Godzilla’ Producers Lawsuit
Legendary Pictures has settled the lawsuit it faced by three producers who alleged they were unfairly tossed off “Godzilla,” weeks before the case was to go to trial.

Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Doug Davidson sued Legendary and its president Jon Jashni in early 2013 over the production company taking them off “Godzilla,” accusing Legendary of trying to avoid paying the producers millions of dollars. The suit was filed after Legendary sought a declaratory judgment that the three producers had no claim over the project.

Terms of the settlement in Los Angeles Superior Court were not immediately disclosed.

Legendary said in its court filings that the trio’s efforts consisted only of introducing a screenwriter and providing contributing notes that were not used. Legendary asserted that the compensation for all three under the agreement was limited to a $25,000 development fee.

Lin, Lee and Davidson said in their counterclaim that the three

With the number of soap operas dwindling in recent years, it's inevitable that the remaining shows will be better represented in the nominations, but even with that in mind, "The Young and the Restless's" recent stranglehold on the Best Actor race at the Daytime Emmys has been remarkable. -Break- Daytime Emmy pre-nominations: 'Young and Restless' leads with 22 There have been nine Best Actor nominees in the last two years, and seven of them were from "Y&R." Perhaps unsurprisingly, "Y&R" also won both years: Doug Davidson in 2013 and Billy Miller in 2014. The only other nominee in both contests was Jason Thompson from "General Hospital." Those two victories put "Y&R" on top as the most awarded program in the category with nine, and if this year's pre-nominations are any indication, "Y&R" may sweep again.

Gus Van Sant Will Direct Anime Adaptation 'Death Note'

Gus Van Sant Will Direct Anime Adaptation 'Death Note'
Gus Van Sant has signed on to direct an adaptation of the Japanese manga Death Note, which has been languishing in development at Warner Bros. for several years now.

Back in January 2011, Shane Black signed on to direct from a script by Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry, but we never heard anything else about the project until now. The Tracking Board reports that the most recent script was written by Shane Black, Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry, and that Shane Black was still attached to direct up until 2013, which is, coincidentally, when his blockbuster Iron Man 3 hit theaters.

Death Note is based on the Japanese manga written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata, which follows a young student who finds a bizarre notebook. He discovers that he can kill anyone instantly simply by writing their name in the notebook, as an FBI agent starts tracking him when the bodies keep piling up.
