Following the success of American Sniper, Clint Eastwood has found his next project, which will once again be a biopic. Eastwood has signed on to direct a movie focusing on airline pilot Captain Chelsey “Sully” Sullenberger.

Death Row Records co-founder Marion "Suge" Knight was arrested early this morning in connection with a hit-and-run accident on a commercial set for Straight Outta Compton. The incident killed at least one man, whom many thought was original Battlestar Galactica star Terry Carter, but instead turned out to be a close friend of Knight's.
