Russell, whom he worked with on Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle. The film tells the story of inventor of the Miracle Mop, Joy Mangano, whom Lawrence would play. De Niro is considering the role of Mangano's father, but his decision reportedly depends on whether Lawrence's deal closes. Russell is rewriting the script, which tracks Mangano's path from single mother in Long Island to QVC star, originally by Bridesmaids scribe Annie Mumolo. The film is »

Lifetime has officially greenlit "Seeds of Yesterday," the fourth and final telemovie in the "Flowers in the Attic" series based on the V.C. Andrews novels. The project is expected to air next year following the third one "If There Be Thorns" in early 2015.
Jason Lewis and Rachael Carpani will reprise their roles as Christopher and Cathy Dollangager from 'Thorns' in the fourth film. The pair take over from Mason Dye and Kiernan Shipka in the first film and Wyatt Nash and Rose McIver in the second.
In 'Seeds', the Dollangager family's deeply troubled relationships, dark secrets and tragedy come to a head in a way that will haunt them forever. James Maslow ("Big Time Rush") will join the cast as Bart Dollanganger.

The TV movie is slated for a 2015 release and will follow the premiere of the series’ third chapter, “If There Be Thorns.”
Although the book series also features the prequel story “Garden of Shadows,” Lifetime states that this will be the conclusion to the Dollanganger tale. In the movie, the family continues to coexist — albeit miserably — as their troubled relationships, dark secrets and tragedy come to a head. Jason Lewis (“Sex and the City”) and Rachael Carpani (“McLeod’s Daughters”) will reprise their “If There Be Thorns” roles as the intensely intimate brother and sister Christopher and Cathy Dollanganger.

“Big Time Rush” fans are in for a treat. Star Carlos PenaVega will make his first television appearance on a scripted show since “Btr” ended last year on Nick at Nite's “Instant Mom,” TheWrap has learned. PenaVega will guest star as a love interest for… wait for it… Sheryl Lee Ralph's Maggie. On the episode, Maggie bribes James (Tylen Jacob Williams) and Aaron (Damarr Calhoun) with the promise of a snow machine to pretend to be her younger brothers when she starts dating a younger man (PenaVega), who happens to be blind.

As bad as career opportunities got for late actress Brittany Murphy, at least she never had to make something like “The Brittany Murphy Story” — a bottom-feeding slice of tacky TV movie exploitation that transforms a true Hollywood tragedy into tedious trash. A misleading ad campaign stirred buzz that this Lifetime premiere might milk the mysterious circumstances of Murphy’s untimely passing for armchair murder mystery, but there’s nothing quite so salacious at work in the final product. Instead, the telepic’s more pedestrian offenses include embarrassing scripting, awkward performances and threadbare production values. Fortunately, unlike Murphy, it should be quickly forgotten.
One of Murphy’s last roles coincidentally was as the star of a relatively classier Lifetime pic, 2009’s Nora Roberts adaptation “Tribute.” Apparently, the story of her life doesn’t merit anything in the same league, as no expense or effort appears to have gone into this bargain-basement, »

Nickelodeon has ordered a viral video game show from Ryan Seacrest productions titled “Webheads.” It will air Monday-Friday starting in June and will anchor the kids’ network's weekday live-action block. “Big Time Rush” star Carlos PenaVega will host the series that combines Nick's trademark slime, physical challenges and viral videos.

When Ryan Seacrest kicks off the upfronts by welcoming Pitbull to the stage with his entourage of booty-dancers, you know that Fox isn’t catering to your mom. (Unless your mom is one of Pitbull’s booty-dancers, in which case, lucky you!) So it’s no surprise that Kevin Reilly, Fox’s chairman of entertainment, followed Pitbull’s performance with the announcement that Fox is branding itself as “America’s Next Generation Network,” focusing on a youthful audience. That might also explain why Andy Samberg was there, making some decent quips for the benefit of his fellow Next Generation Americans — and a few self-aware advertisers, »

Hey there Dancing aficionados! Don't be frightened by the change in author -- I'm just taking over for Liz for the night. I'm Robyn, resident Vampire Diaries and Bachelor expert, and a newbie to Dancing. I'll admit I never watched even a minute of the show for the first 17 seasons, yet somehow found myself tuned in for the Season 18 opener -- partly because of my love for '90s TV and partly because of my love for James Maslow, who I interviewed back when he was a shaggy-haired, up-and-coming actor about to start Big Time Rush. (I'll spare the embarrassing photo of us.) Anywho, I'm now officially obsessed with the show and cannot wait to share my run-down of Latin Night!

Kendall Schmidt, frontman of Big Time Rush, recently released a new album with his band Heffron Drive. Responding to questions his fans asked through Uinterview’s new Facebook video app, Schmidt talked about Heffron Drive's unique sound and what goes into writing a song.
Kendall Schmidt Exclusive
With their new music, Heffron Drive has steered away somewhat from their acoustic routes, achieving a more electronic sound. Schmidt hopes that the band is coming into its own, with a blend of different sensibilities.
“The new Heffron Drive music is, definitely, electronic. But I'm trying to keep it having acoustic elements, just because that’s where my love of music started,” Schmidt told Uinterview exclusively. “It's kind of difficult to find a mix, but I'm working on it, and I think it's gonna end up having a cohesive sound that you, that I'm gonna be able to call my own.”
