John David Washington to Star in Christopher Nolan’s Next Film (Exclusive)
Christopher Nolan has tapped “BlacKkKlansman’sJohn David Washington to star in his next “event film,” sources tell Variety.

Nolan recently finished the script for the movie and Warner Bros. quickly dated it for July 18, 2020 — a slot the studio often reserves for the director, most recently with “Dunkirk.”

The gig has become one of the more highly coveted in town, even though most of the industry has been kept in the dark about who has been meeting for the role and what the movie is even about.

Although rumors are swirling that the film is a romantic thriller in the vein of “North by Northwest,” sources have denied those claims, keeping plot details under lock and key. One insider described the pic as a massive, innovative, action blockbuster, which will again be shown in Imax.

Nolan is also producing along with his partner Emma Thomas. Production is set to commence later this year.

James Corden to host 2019 Tony Awards on June 9

James Corden to host 2019 Tony Awards on June 9
Three years after making his Emmy-winning debut as the host of the Tony Awards, James Corden is returning to preside over these top theater honors. The June 9 ceremony from Radio City Music Hall will air live on CBS. These awards celebrate the best of the 2018/2019 theater season. Corden won a Tony in 2012 for his comic turn in the play “One Man, Two Guvnors.”

In 2016, Corden rode the “Hamilton” wave to the highest ratings for this awards show in a decade. This season doesn’t boast such a super-sized hit. However, Corden’s fame has grown since then and he could use his late night talker to tout the Tonys telecast.

After his success with the Tonys in 2016, CBS tapped Corden to host the Grammys in 2017 and 2018. That gig is one of of the reasons why he passed on returning to emcee the Tony Awards in those years. As he told us last year,

Paramount Reveals Official Title For 'Terminator 6'

Paramount Reveals Official Title For 'Terminator 6'
This summer, Terminator 2: Judgment Day will celebrate its 28th anniversary, but in all the years since its release, the franchise still hasn’t given us another another installment that’s been particularly worth watching. And even though most fans are approaching the next Terminator film with a fair amount of skepticism, the involvement of James Cameron as producer does bode well for it.

Since filming wrapped last November, we haven’t seen any footage from the project and though we have witnessed a little behind-the-scenes content, we’re still pretty in the dark when it comes to what we can expect. One thing we do know now, however, is the official title, as Paramount has revealed that it’ll be called Terminator: Dark Fate. Without having any plot details to dig into and no explanation from the studio, we’re unsure of what the meaning behind the moniker may be,
