'The Voice' Recap: Gwen, Usher and Cee Lo Return to Advise the Top 8

21 hours ago | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

Hold onto your hats, fans of The Voice; we are back with the final eight artists competing for the season 8 title. Some very familiar and welcome faces will be gracing our screens. Blake Shelton, Pharrell Williams, Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine have invited Cee Lo Green, Gwen Stefani (advising for both Pharrell and Christina) and Usher back to the studios at The Voice to advise the final eight. This puts a huge grin on my face because since last season, I cannot get enough of Gwen Stefani. Expect excerpts from each advising session as each artist prepares to take the stage for their seventh competitive performance.

The Top 10 performances left us two artists down as America voted to save Koryn Hawthorne, Corey Kent White, Sawyer Fredericks, India Carney, Meghan Linsey, Kimberly Nichole and Hannah Kirby, leaving Deanna Johnson, Joshua Davis and Rob Taylor to duke it out. The Twitter Instant »

Freddie Prinze Jr. Weighs In On "She's All That" Reboot

8 April 2015 11:30 AM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

One of our favorite '90s teen flicks may be getting a major makeover!   The Wrap reported on Tuesday that the beloved 1999 romantic comedy, "She's All That" is getting a remake -- one that will allegedly be directed by Spike Lee's wife, Tonya Lewis Lee.  The original flick follows the story of a high school jock, Zack Siler, who bets his friends that he can make any girl in the school prom queen material. Zack's friends choose the school's artsy outcast, Laney Boggs, for the wager ... but, Siler ends up actually falling for her in the process.  The original "She's All That" film boasted a pretty impressive cast, too -- Freddie Prinze Jr., Rachael Leigh Cook, Matthew Lillard, Usher, Anna Paquin, Lil' Kim and the late Paul Walker all appeared in the teen dramedy.  The Weinstein Company and Miramax are reportedly developing the reboot, but have yet to comment on The Wrap's report. »

She’s All That Is Getting a Remake Because Even Though You Aren’t 13 Anymore, There Are Still 13-Year-Olds, and They Need to Be Entertained [Updated]

8 April 2015 9:13 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Some would say 1999's She's All That, starring Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachael Leigh Cook (back when they were very much all that), already had a sort-of remake with 2001's Not Another Teen Movie. But not according to Hollywood! The Wrap reports that a remake of the Pygmalion-inspired rom-com is in the works, with Kenny Leon directing and Spike Lee's wife producing — which hopefully means we'll see some black actors in lead roles rather than swagless token friends and campus DJs (remember Usher?!). None of this matters, of course, unless the remake can somehow top the original's theme song, Sixpence None the Richer's "Kiss Me." What a gem.Update: BuzzFeed's Emily Orley says The Weinstein Co. and Mirimax have not reached a deal for a She's All That reboot. We can breathe again .. for now. »

She's All That Is Getting a Remake

8 April 2015 8:48 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If She's All That was your jam in 1999, you might not be thrilled to hear that a remake is in the works. Miramax is reviving the now-classic teen comedy. Kenny Leon, who is mostly known for TV movies like Lifetime's remake of Steel Magnolias, is attached to direct. Though a cast hasn't been announced, it's probably fair to assume that original stars Rachael Leigh Cook and Freddie Prinze Jr. won't return. Paul Walker, Matthew Lillard, Jodi Lyn O'Keefe, Usher Raymond, Lil' Kim, and Gabrielle Union also starred in the first film. See why this is a classic? Stay tuned for more information. Update: Some outlets are reporting that the remake news is just a rumor. »

8 April 2015 6:40 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Hit 1999 teen flick "She's All That" is getting a makeover, with reports suggesting that a remake starring a more diverse cast is in the works.

The Tracking Board writes that Miramax and The Weinstein Company are teaming up to remake the property, with director Kenny Leon attached. Leon is also directing NBC's upcoming live staging of "The Wiz," and has helmed several updates on classic films and plays, including the 2012 Lifetime version of "Steel Magnolias."

In addition to Leon, the creative team also reportedly includes Tonya Lewis Lee (wife of Spike Lee), who's producing the project. TheWrap reports that filmmakers are looking to cast more diverse leads this time around.

"She's All That" -- a take on the "Pygmalion" tale that inspired "My Fair Lady" -- starred Freddie Prinze Jr. as a jock who makes a bet that he can turn an ugly duckling (Rachael Leigh Cook) into prom queen. »

From the Victoria's Secret Fashion show to the streets of Sesame, Ed Sheeran is clearly an everyman performer - no venue is too big, too small, too sexy, too childish. On Wednesday, the singer-songwriter joined the cast of Sesame Street to perform a song about a very important subject: how to behave at school vs. how to behave at home. "At home I can speak where I please. I can talk real loud into the breeze," he sings alongside Elmo, Cookie Monster and a few other puppets who are surprisingly adept at playing instruments despite puffy fingers. "In school I »
