The Project is a movie about pirates without Johnny Depp. It's also a movie about life-or-death military operations, but there are no duty-bound, Stars and Stripes-waving patriots to be found. Instead, this documentary, premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, is a stark and shocking look at the outlaw police force that seems a world away, but has a vast impact on the way we live in America. Directed by the Emmy and Peabody-winning team of Adam Ciralsky and Shawn Efran, focuses on the Puntland Maritime Police Force, a paramilitary group that is working to stop

Johnny Rotten was acting pretty, well, rotten. The former lead singer of the Sex Pistols (real name John Lydon) got into hot water after telling a female host on the Australian talk show The Project on Channel Ten to "shut up when a man is talking" when she cut in with a question about the death of Margaret Thatcher. Oh yeah, he went there. "Hey, hey missus, shut up, whoever you are, shut up, shut up, shut up," Rotten told anchor Carrie Bickmore. "Now listen, when a man is talking do not interrupt." Bickmore tried her best to play it off and continue with the interview, but the rocker didn't let it slide, telling her, »
Former Sex Pistol Johnny Rotten has come under fire after launching a bizarre sexist rant on Australian TV when the show's female anchor, Carrie Bickmore, asked him about the death of Baroness Thatcher.
The disgusting tirade started with Rotten saying "missus, shutup", he then told her, "when a man is talking do not interrupt."
He continued, with his seemingly over-inflated ego, thus: "You're beginning to sound like excited children, you're talking to a proper master of the universe here."
Rotten is currently touring the country with his band Public Image Limited.
However, he has hit back at claims he's sexist.“It’s quite clear to me I’m not a sexist and I’m not a misogynist.”
He said that if someone interrupts, »

Sienna Miller wrapped herself in a fur-lined jacket for an outing in NYC yesterday. Wearing embroidered red and gold ankle boots and gray jeans, the stylish actress stopped by an Atm then hailed a cab in SoHo. Although Sienna was solo yesterday, she carried baby Marlowe Sturridge in a puffy onesie with her on Sunday when she stepped out with her other half, Tom Sturridge. The couple are counting down the days until Tom's play, Orphans, opens on March 26. Tom will star opposite Alec Baldwin and Ben Foster, who stepped in for Shia Labeouf after his feud with Alec reportedly led him to leave the show. Sienna will also return to the spotlight again soon as her latest film, Foxcatcher, will hit the big screen later this year. The project pairs her with Steve Carell and Channing Tatum, who attended his G.I. Joe: Retaliation premiere in London last night. View »

Will Tom Cruise say U.N.C.L.E.? According to Deadline.com reporter Mike Fleming, Cruise is in preliminary talks to star in "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." for Warner Bros. and director Guy Ritchie. The film is based on the cult series of the same name that ran on television from 1964 through 1968; Robert Vaughn starred on "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." as Napoleon Solo, the spy role that Cruise would play if his deal is worked out.
Cruise is just the latest A-list star attached to "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." The project was originally set up by Warner Bros. in November of 2010 with Steven Soderbergh set as director and George Clooney in the starring role. Clooney dropped out in August of that year after suffering a back injury, however, forcing Soderbergh to search for a replacement.

She is in talks to join Tina Fey and Jason Bateman in This Is Where I Leave You, based on the Johnathan Tropper book about squabbling siblings following their father’s death.

• Drew Barrymore is set to re-team with Adam Sandler for a new comedy about Jim and Lauren, who go on a blind date and then somehow get stuck at a resort with children from previous marriages. The two starred together in 1998′s delightful Wedding Singer and 2004′s could-have-been-worse 50 First Dates. Despite Sandler’s recent slate of films, Barrymore does have a solid track record of bringing some heart to his comedies, so we’ll remain cautiously optimistic about the still-untitled project. Frequent Sandler collaborator Frank Coraci (The Wedding Singer) will direct. [Variety]

Those who have been waiting for the next Stephen Gaghan (“Syriana”) film have probably lost their patience by now. It has been almost eight years but his latest project, “Candy Store,” has enough potential big names rumored to be involved to tantalize you: The project has had Brad Pitt, Denzel Washington, Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz all circling or being offered roles with Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Bradley Cooper on various wishlists. But last fall, Chris Hemsworth was the first to check in and now another name has joined him. "Lawless" and "Zero Dark Thirty" star Jason Clarke has confirmed that he will be joining the thriller. MTV caught up with the actor on the red carpet at the Oscars last Sunday and he talked a little bit about his role in the upcoming “Rise Of The Planet of the Apes” sequel. But afterwards, he dropped this little nugget, »

It’s pilot season, which means your favorite out-of-work TV actors, actresses, creators and writers are getting a chance to return to the small screen once more.
Although we have yet to know what new series we’ll see next year, the networks have been busy selecting projects to consider for their schedules. So far, almost 100 scripts have been chosen, and audiences will only get to see a handful actually come to fruition.
Several are duds, but there are a few promising prospects that I hope network executives will keep around for the 2013-2014 season — even if it means they have to cancel old favorites to make room (just keep Parks and Recreation, Ok, NBC?).
Check out my choices for the best prospective pilots NBC and CBS have ordered, and come back tomorrow to see my picks for ABC and Fox:
