Destiny's Child could reunite for a new tour and album. Beyonce's father and the band's manager Mathew Knowles has suggested the chart-topping R&B band - also featuring Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams - could get back together to ''make history''. The music manager confirmed he is still in charge of all things Destiny's Child despite Beyonce dropping him as her solo manager in 2011. Speaking on The Roula and Ryan Show, he said: ''Folks don't know I am still the manager of Destiny's Child. You see them doing songs together, now they've done two. There might be another Destiny's Child album coming, there might be this tour that makes history featuring Beyonce, Kelly and Michelle.'' The 'Independent Woman' trio recently featured on Michelle's solo track 'Say Yes' and last year they all provided vocals for Kelly's solo song 'You've Changed'. Mathew was dropped as Beyonce's manager in 2011 but the »
This is dream team stuff, people. The Wrap reports that actress/writer/director Lake Bell has been tapped to direct the big screen adaptation of Claire Messud‘s Man Booker Prize listed bestselling novel “The Emperor’s Children.” Bell will direct from Noah Baumbach‘s script, which has basically just been sitting around for whole years waiting for someone to make it into a real movie. Set in New York City just before and after 9/11, the novel centers on a trio of Brown University pals (who maybe don’t like each other as much as they should) who are just trying to make their way (often, their very misguided way) around life in the big city. The events of 9/11 change that, of course, and the novel is an unsentimental look at how we experience tragedy, especially the wide-ranging and extremely unexpected kind (as the pages tick by and the days move forward and the inevitability of what »

Dennis Lehane, who wrote the novel Shutter Island is based on, will write the pilot script, with Martin Scorsese set to direct the first episode. The series is tentatively titled Ashecliffe, the name of the isolated mental hospital where the book and film are set, with the story to take place before the events of the movie. The show will focus on the hospital's past, and the sinister secrets of the facility's founders in the early 20th Century, who developed methods of treatment for the mentally ill.
The series was initially thought up by Paramount TV executive Amy Powell. She brought the idea to Martin Scorsese and Dennis Lehane, who loved the idea of expanding the story of his novel. Tom Bernardo is working as a co-writer with Dennis Lehane on the pilot. »
Beverly Center: Flynn’s Final Scandal Makes for Interesting Cinematic Footnote
It’s been eight years since Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland’s 2006 sophomore film, Quinceanera swept up the Audience and Grand Jury Prize awards at the Sundance Film Festival. The directing duo is back with a re-ignition of an old Hollywood scandal in The Last of Robin Hood, a glance at the final years of Errol Flynn and his romantic entanglement with a female minor. While the material is unerringly fascinating and features a trio of notable names, it’s a rendition that feels a bit too polished and hardly as seedy as it should be. It seems attempts have been made to assuage unnecessary heartache to the relatives of the ingénue at the center of this strange ménage-a-trois, and the resulting film seems a heavily polished reenactment too apprehensive to really get its hands dirty. Yet, the »

Beyoncé's Video Music Awards set can only be described as "Flawless." Wearing a bejeweled body suit, Queen Bey ran through the bulk of her hit visual album, from the sexy "Partition" to the sweet "Xo." She was the most nominated artist on Sunday, and the pop diva was also presented with the Video Vanguard Award, which honored her entire body of work - and she showcased her latest hits in the jaw-dropping 15-minute performance. Still, she didn't pull a Justin Timberlake (who, as last year's Vv award recipient, reunited with his 'Nsync bandmates on the VMAs stage) by singing »

The role in the latest production, which debuted in October 2013, will become Stone’s on Nov. 11, USA Today reports.

Word surfaced earlier this month that discussions had resumed, this time for Stone to replace current lead Michelle Williams when her extended run in the production wraps on Nov. 9. The timing worked out on the second try, with Stone now confirmed to step into the show as Sally Bowles

In an alternative present in which the career of the actor Robin Wright (played by Robin Wright) is in the doldrums, her agent (Harvey Keitel) persuades her to sign a contract with Miramount that will allow them to use her in whatever future studio product it likes. She won't even have to turn up to set any more. All she need do is allow them to digitally scan her image and likeness one time, and the film-makers will take care of the rest. Keanu Reeves and Michelle Williams have already agreed. »
The part of Sally Bowles has long been associated with Hollywood actresses. Performers as diverse as Jennifer Jason Leigh, Natasha Richardson and most recently Michelle Williams have donned the distinctive bowler hat and stockings for an image that was made an icon of cinema by Liza Minnelli in the 1972 film of Cabaret. Now after much speculation The Amazing Spider-man star Emma Stone is in the closing stages of negotiation to take over the stage show from Williams in November.
Relaunched in April by the powerhouse theatrical combination of former Donmar Warehouse boss/Skyfall director Sam Mendes (who previously staged it with Jane Horrocks) and Rob Marshall (Chicago), the production also features Alan Cumming as the ghoulish Mc who presides over the action as the Nazis encroach into the Weimar Republic in the run up to the Second World War. The Kander and Ebb musical is based on the writings of »

Auf weidersehen, Michelle Williams, wilkommen Emma Stone. A spokesman for the Broadway revival of the Broadway revival of Cabaret confirms that the Amazing Spider-Man and Magic In The Moonlight star “is in negotiations to make her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles in Cabaret.” The Roundabout Theatre Company production stars Alan Cumming as the M.C., reprising the role that won him a Tony Award in 1998, when Sally was played by the late Natasha Richardson (who also won a Tony for her performance).
Staged by Sam Mendes and Rob Marshall, the show has done solid business since opening in April, most recently reaching about 80% of its gross potential and filling about 90% of Studio 54’s 893 seats. Stone was rumored to have been the first choice for the role when scheduling scuttled the plan. Williams, who has been terrific as the so-so chanteuse, recently extended her stay through November 9, when, presumably, Stone will take over. »

Broadway could soon be bringing a huge A-list movie star to the stage! Emma Stone is in negotiations to make her Broadway debut in Cabaret, reports Broadway.com. Stone would play headlining British singer Sally Bowles in the smash-hit musical. This isn't the first time Stone has been in talks to star in the successful production. In April 2013, the actress was close to finalizing a deal with the show. Scheduling conflicts with an upcoming feature film, however, would ultimately force her to pass on the opportunity. If talks continue and a deal is reached, Stone would take over the role when Michelle Williams leaves the show at the beginning of November. Cabaret tells the »
Emma Stone is in talks to make her Broadway debut, playing Sally Bowles in the revival of Cabaret that is currently running at Studio 54. While the rest of the cast is staying on, the New York Times reports Stone would replace Michelle Williams when she leaves the show on November 9. Stone was actually slotted for the role before Williams, but had to drop out for scheduling reasons. Of course, she did some stage acting as a kid, but as a working Hollywood actress since her teens, she hasn’t had any major stage experience. However, she is Emma Stone. She could lip-synch the musical and still get roses thrown at her every night. »

The 25-year-old actress is in negotiations to make her Broadway debut as Sally Bowles—the role currently played by Michelle Williams—in Roundabout Theatre Company’s revival of Cabaret, EW has confirmed.
