"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" is the title for the next installment of the Disney adventure series. The announcement was made at Disney's inaugural D23 Expo, running Sept. 10-13.  The film will hit theaters in Summer 2011. As previously reported, Rob Marshall ("Chicago") has been tapped to direct this fourth film. Gore Verbinski, who helmed the first three installments, bowed for this one in April.

Queen Latifah Reveals Past As Sexual Abuse Victim

10 June 2009 9:10 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Rapper-turned-actress Queen Latifah has opened up for the first time about her harrowing childhood as a victim of sexual abuse in a candid new magazine interview.

The Chicago star, real name Dana Owens, grew up in New Jersey with her mother Rita. Her dad, policeman Lancelot Owens, left the family home after her parents divorced when she was 10 years old.

Latifah reveals she would often be placed under a babysitter's care, but her life was turned upside down when one teenage male sitter decided to take advantage of the youngster.

She struggled to come to terms with the traumatic experience for years, and refuses to let pals and potential lovers get "too close" to her as a result.

She tells Essence magazine, "He violated me. I never told anybody. I just buried it as deeply as I could and kept people at an arm's length."

Single Latifah, who has long been rumoured to be a lesbian, even admits the abuse has caused irreparable damage to her love life - suggesting she previously turned down a marriage proposal because of her childhood tragedy.

The 39 year old adds, "I never really let a person get too close to me. I could have been married years ago, but I had a commitment issue." »

1 May 2009 6:35 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Hugh Jackman is trying to persuade his Oscars dancing partner Anne Hathaway to join him on the Carousel.

The Aussie star has developed a script for the beloved Rodgers and Hammerstein musical and he wants Hathaway to play Julie Jordan opposite his Billy Bigelow.

He says, "I've been looking to do a musical film for some time and after things like Moulin Rouge!, Chicago and Hairspray, I think there's a real opportunity there."

And he's clear only Hathaway will do as his leading lady: "I've been filling up her answering machine with messages about Carousel."

Hathaway, who joined Jackman for a song and dance at the Oscars, is about to embark on her own musical journey - she will star in a new theatre and film adaptation of The Wizard of Oz star Judy Garland's life. »

The film, starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Penelope Cruz and Nicole Kidman, recently wrapped shooting and is scheduled to hit cinemas in November.

The all-star cast is directed by Rob Marshall, who also helmed critically-acclaimed 2002 musical Chicago - which garnered six Academy Awards, including a Best Supporting Actress gong for Catherine Zeta-Jones.

And Weinstein is sure the winning formula will be repeated with Nine.

He says, "Most definitely. You'll see a lot of nominations. You'll see a lot of dancing too. Really, this is a great musical, a lot of great musical numbers.

"It's directed by Rob Marshall. We won the Oscar for Chicago; hopefully we'll get in the arena again." »
