Variety more 'sequels we don't need!' news. Boss Baby is getting one for 2021. Sigh. I actually thought that movie was unexpectedly good but most movies don't actually need sequels. Stop trying to make movies into big TV shows with multiple episodes! TV is great but Movies are not TV!

Investigation Discovery is headed deep into scripted territory. The Discovery-owned network has ordered six-part true crime drama “The Von Bulow Affair” from Universal Cable Productions for a 2018 run on ID.
“Von Bulow” is among a whopping 660 hours of original programming that ID has on tap for the 2017-18 frame. The channel that has been the biggest success story in the Discovery family of the past seven years will also offer up its first scripted telepics and a range of docu series.
The channel that thrives on a diet of murder and mayhem has partnered with mystery writer James Patterson on an unusual initiative that will see Patterson write non-fiction books about murder cases covered in ID programming. ID will then turn those books into scripted productions. Patterson’s partnership with ID also includes the “Murder is Forever” true-crime series that debuts later this year.

This week, Neil Calloway looks at the inequality in what men and women get paid for movies…
There has been much made recently of the disparity in pay between men and women across all industries, and a story this week brought the issue in Hollywood into sharp relief when Natalie Portman revealed that she was paid only a third of the salary her co-star, Ashton Kutcher received for the 2011 romantic comedy No Strings Attached.
Portman isn’t the first big name female star to make her feelings known about the imbalance in Hollywood pay; with the 2014 Sony hack exposing the pay gap between Jennifer Lawrence and her male co-stars in American Hustle. I don’t know about you, but for me paying Jeremy Renner more for that film than Lawrence is nothing short of bizarre; the memorable moments of that movie all belong to her.
