On July 8, J.K. Rowling released a short, short story about grown-up Harry Potter and the Sequel She Swore She’d Never Write, and over in the magical land of central Florida, the Harry Potter theme park’s Diagon Alley expansion is entertaining six-hour lines on opening day. So apparently, it’s Harry Potter day, and to celebrate this completely random occasion, I’ve decided to do something equally arbitrary and sort a bunch of celebrities into the four houses of Hogwarts.

Just a couple of months ago, Sony Pictures had secured The Crazies helmer Breck Eisner to direct Karate Kid 2, a vehicle that would give Jaden Smith a chance to redeem himself following the failure of After Earth. But now Eisner is gone, and producers are bringing in two new screenwriters to once again retool the sequel's script. Deadline reports Breck Eisner has left Karate Kid 2 over scheduling conflicts. No mention is made of what project could be conflicting with the long-in-the-works sequel to the 2010 reboot. However, it's suggested that script troubles are to blame for the schedule shakeup. Cyrus Voris and Ethan Reiff were originally brought in to pen the pic, but this latest report reveals Sony has since hired Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer to write a new version of the screenplay.

The Karate Kid is 30 years old: What happened to the cast?
Eisner is said to have departed over a scheduling conflict.
Not all reboots/remakes are made equal, for sure, but 2010′s The Karate Kid was a contemporary re-imagining of a cherished 1980s property that resonated with a number of moviegoers, earning a respectable critical reception and over $359 million worldwide in theaters. Columbia Pictures began development on a followup shortly after the Karate Kid redux was released; fast forward four years to the present, and the project has yet to make a whole lot of progress forward – especially now that it’s previously set director has stepped away and the script is being rewritten (… again).

It was only back in April when Breck Eisner (The Crazies) had signed on to direct a sequel to the reboot of The Karate Kid, but it looks like he has already parted ways according to Deadline.

North West's family spared no expense giving her a birthday party fit for a princess. Although North turned 1 in NYC on Father's Day, the family decided to celebrate with their friends and loved ones in La this weekend. Named Kidchella after Coachella, the popular music festival Kendall and Kylie Jenner attended earlier this year, the party was complete with a Ferris wheel, bouncy house, and mini performance stage. With all the attractions, the Saturday afternoon affair gave the social-media-friendly family several photo ops. For starters, sisters Kendall and Kylie took over the stage with pal Jaden Smith, lip-syncing hit after hit as mom Kris Jenner captured it all in videos she posted on Instagram. The sisters seemed at home on the stage one week after hosting the MuchMusic Video Awards, where Kendall turned heads in a sexy and dramatic gown. Kim and Khloé Kardashian also shared snaps, all of which featured the #Kidchella hashtag. »
