"There have been some conversations," Duff shared, although she also told E! News it's "very far off into the distance."
Viewers last saw Lizzie in 2003, as she traveled Rome during the beloved Lizzie McGuire Movie. While fans can't go marking their calendars for a reboot just yet, Duff admits this potential revival could be very exciting.
"I love her so much," Duff said of Lizzie, 15 years after the show's end. "I think that she was so important to girls at an important time in their life. If she could be important to them again at this age, I think that would be amazing.

Music for “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” “Green Book,” “Mandy” and “The Other Side of the Wind” has been disqualified for various reasons, Variety has learned.
More than 150 scores are in the running, although only the approximately 300 music-branch members have access to the list when they log onto the Academy website to cast their ballots. This year, unlike previous years, the Academy chose not to release the complete rundowns of qualified scores and songs.
“Solo: A Star Wars Story,” composed by John Powell with themes by John Williams, was nixed by the board as having been entered too late for the competition (deadline was Nov. 15).

“Mary, Queen of Scots,” the feature film debut of stage director Josie Rourke, is filled with all of the backstabbing, palace intrigue and secrecy you’d expect from the Elizabethan era.
One of the film’s secrets actually leads to a treasonous bit of palace intrigue and literal backstabbing.
In “Mary, Queen of Scots,” which stars Saoirse Ronan in the titular role and Margot Robbie as Queen Elizabeth I, Mary’s Italian-born courtier and confidant David Rizzio (Ismael Cruz Cordova) is heavily implied to be gay. Mary says at one point during the film, as he’s dressed in a dress pretending to be one of her chambermaids, that she does not hold Rizzio’s “nature” against him.
The historical record is unclear, but Rourke told TheWrap,
And it turns out they could do wonders.
“Bumblebee,” directed by Travis Knight (“Kubo and the Two Strings”), is the best “Transformers” movie so far, going all the way back to the 1986 animated film. And although one could argue that that’s a relatively low bar, since narrative coherence and recognizable character development are all it really takes to best its predecessors, saying so is

Less than 48 hours after accepting the Oscars hosting gig, Kevin Hart dropped out after old homophobic tweets from him surfaced on the internet. That put the Academy in quite a pickle.
Since Gritty’s debut earlier this year, the new mascot for the Philadelphia Flyers has been embraced as an internet meme and American treasure despite — or perhaps because of — his googly eyes and creepy, hairy appearance. Even as the Flyers languish near the bottom of the NHL Eastern Conference standings, Gritty has made this season a memorable one for fans with his antics, including dumping a boy who wanted to fight him on the ice into the penalty box.

Of the three films, the strongest opening went to Focus Features’ “Mary Queen of Scots,” which made $200,000 from its four-screen opening for a $50,000 per screen average. That’s the mark that December specialty films are looking for. While summer indie releases can do well with a $10,000-$30,000 opening average, the December market is far more crowded. An opening of less than $50,000 is likely a sign that the film is going to fizzle out quickly, as arthouse moviegoers go for other more acclaimed films.
But even with this strong start, “Mary Queen of Scots” is not guaranteed to hold on as Christmas draws closer. The film failed to earn any Golden Globe nominations this week,
