Adam Brody and Leighton Meester need to make more appearances together, because when they do, our Oc and Gossip Girl-filled hearts can barely handle it. The couple, who tied the knot in 2014 and welcomed their daughter, Arlo, last August, stepped out in La on Tuesday for the premiere and afterparty for Adam's new film, StartUp. The pair, who are rarely seen in public together, was all smiles as they put their arms around each other and flashed smiles for the camera. You can also clearly see Leighton's beautiful engagement ring and wedding band. So cute! »

Guy Ritchie's 2000 movie Snatch is the latest film to get a TV remake. (We'll add it to our list of movie-to-tv projects in due course.) The original film, of course, starred the legendary Jason Statham alongside a bloke named Brad Pitt.
Collider reports that the TV take on Snatch will star Harry Potter's Ron Weasley actor Rupert Grint. He'll play Charlie Cavendish, who's been described as “dynamic, frustratingly chaotic, and utterly posh.”
Dougray Scott (Mission: Impossible II, Taken 3, Fear The Walking Dead) is attached to play Vic Hill. Ed Westwick of Gossip Girl has signed up to portray Sonny Castillo. Fans of the film will notice that these are brand new characters names, not recastings of the old crew.
Here's the synopsis, which, again, isn't »
Crackle, Sony's streaming network, today announced that Rupert Grint, most known for his role as Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter film franchise, will star in the network's new scripted drama series, Snatch, based on the wildly popular movie of the same name. Grint, who most recently was seen on Broadway opposite Matthew Broderick and Nathan Lane in "It's Only a Play," will play the dynamic, frustratingly chaotic and utterly posh, Charlie Cavendish, and will also serve as an executive producer. Additional cast includes Dougray Scott (Fear The Walking Dead, Doctor Who) as Vic Hill, and Ed Westwick (Wicked City, Gossip Girl) who will guest star as Sonny Castillo.
Nick Renton (The Musketeers, Jericho) has signed on to direct the series which begins production next week in Manchester, England. As previously announced at this year's Upfront presentation, Crackle will carry the spirit of the setting in the original feature film, »

At its 2016 Upfront presentation, Sony Pictures’ Crackle announced Snatch, a ten-episode series based off the film of the same name. Now, that project has its leading man. Crackle has announced the principal cast of Snatch, and at the center is Rupert Grint, the actor best known for portraying Ron Weasley in the eight Harry Potter films.
If you’ve seen the original 2000 film on which Crackle’s new series is based, you may wonder which role is going to Grint. Will he portray Brad Pitt’s character? Jason Statham’s? Benicio del Toro’s? The answer is none of them. While the upcoming series is set in the world of the Snatch movie, it will feature a completely original story that will hit on the same sort of themes (organized crime, urban violence, etc.) that were present in Guy Ritchie’s film. Grint will lead the way as Charlie Cavendish, »

Before Blake Lively was a household name in Hollywood, she was an Upper East Side socialite on the hit show Gossip Girl. Not only did her character Serena van der Woodsen inspire us with her killer fashion sense, but her scenes were constantly filled with some Gif-worthy moments. While Blair was the queen bee of Constance Billard, Serena was certainly the reigning champ of facial expressions. In honor of the actress's 29th birthday this week, check out her most relatable faces here, and then get your nostalgia fix by seeing what the rest of the cast is up to now. »

The hourlong scripted drama, consisting of 10 episodes, will debut on Sony’s streaming network in 2017. Grint will play the dynamic, frustratingly chaotic and utterly posh Charlie Cavendish, alongside Dougray Scott, who plays fellow series regular Vic Hill, and “Gossip Girl” alum Ed Westwick, who will be a recurring guest star in the role of Sonny Castillo. “The Musketeers” helmer Nick Renton has signed on to direct the series, which begins production next week in Manchester, England.
The new series will evoke the spirit of the 2000 film, per Crackle, but will follow new characters. Inspired by a real life heist in London, “Snatch” centers on a group of twenty-something, up and coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of »

For years, Marvel has been teasing a Runaways movie. In fact, it was originally planned for Phase 1, but it kept getting bumped by better known superheroes such as Captain America and Thor. It was indefinitely delayed because Marvel decided to move forward on The Avengers instead. It was never subsequently announced that Runaways would be part of Phase 2 or Phase 3, though Marvel boss Kevin Feige refused to say the project was dead. While some speculated that it would be announced as a Marvel Phase 4 movie, turns out the studio had different plans altogether.
Marvel's Runaways is now officially going to be a TV show instead of a movie. Specifically, it will become a Hulu series, bypassing Netflix. It's not yet clear what this means for the McU and its inter-connective tissue. It's been teased for a while now that the Marvel TV shows and the movies are not really meant to crossover. »

The American online streaming service Hulu has just greenlit a pilot and full-season script order for a TV adaptation of Marvel's Runaways comic from the creators of Gossip Girl, Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, to be produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature.
Runaways — adapted from the comic by Brian K. Vaughn and Adrian Alphona (at one point in its run, Joss Whedon also wrote for the series) — tells the story of a group of diverse teenagers who discover their parents are part of an evil crime organiztion called "The Pride." Though the six teens despise one another, they band together to investigate their parents' nefarious plots. Scwartz and Savage wrote the script for the pilot and will serve as showrunners moving forward.
Speaking about the project to Deadline, Schwartz »
Among the many Marvel TV shows taking the world by storm, one more fantastic comic is being added to the ranks. Marvel's Runaways are coming to Hulu! Find out more below!
Every teenager thinks their parents are evil. What if you found out they actually were? "Marvel's Runaways" is the story of six diverse teenagers who can barely stand each other but who must unite against a common foe--their parents.
For those unfamiliar with the popular comic Runaways, this is the overall synopsis of the series and boy was it a good series. Each teen has their own unique set of abilities, but yet they're just starting to learn about them. Instead of your run-of-the-mill superhero origin story having a parental-figure there to help them through it, these guys just have each other and none of them know how to help.
So, when Marvel announced that Hulu would be the home for Marvel's Runaways, »
