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,

  • The Wrap
Titans” is keeping it in the family with its latest addition to its expanded roster for season 2.

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,

Bob Iger on Disney-Fox Deal Close: ‘I Wish I Could Tell You That the Hardest Part Is Behind Us’

  • The Wrap
Disney Chief Bob Iger celebrated the close of the Walt Disney Company’s $71.3 billion acquisition of 21st Century Fox in a lengthy memo to staff Tuesday night, in which he addressed the “challenging work” the Mouse House will face when integrating its new assets into its existing brand. And the chairman and CEO hinted that process could include more potential layoffs.

“I wish I could tell you that the hardest part is behind us, that closing the deal was the finish line rather than just the next milestone,” Disney’s chairman and CEO wrote. “What lies ahead is the challenging work of uniting our businesses to create a dynamic global entertainment company with the content, the platforms and the reach to deliver industry-defining experiences that will engage consumers around the world for generations to come.”

TV Review: ‘Hanna’

TV Review: ‘Hanna’
The 2011 film “Hanna” was a delicious surprise. Directed by prestige moviemaker Joe Wright, “Hanna” played like an artist’s frantic attempt to cram in all the wild impulses he wasn’t allowed elsewhere, while retaining a certain fundamental elegance. Saoirse Ronan played a teen trained from childhood to be a killing machine for reasons that never quite become clear. Engaged in cat-and-mouse warfare with Cate Blanchett’s compulsive CIA officer, Ronan’s Hanna sprinted through dazzlingly constructed frames as a propulsive techno score (composed by the Chemical Brothers) blared — and the movie never lost its balance or its control.

That filmic achievement,

Nexstar to Sell 19 TV Stations, Including New York’s Wpix, for $1.32 Billion in Cash

Nexstar is selling off 19 of its local TV stations in 15 markets to the tune of $1.32 billion in cash. Tegna and E.W. Scripps will be the recipients of those channels, which include New York City’s Wpix (that one for Scripps).

In December, Nexstar agreed to pay $4.1 billion to acquire Tribune Media. This purge of television stations is to comply with FCC rules and get the Doj’s go-ahead on the Tribune transaction. It will also provide funds for Nexstar to help offset its larger deal’s debt.

“As with our prior acquisitions, we announced the Tribune transaction after developing a comprehensive regulatory compliance plan for required station divestitures and a detailed integration plan that will result in significant synergy realization,” Perry Sook, chairman, president and CEO of Nexstar, said on Wednesday. “The proposed divestitures announced today mark an important step in fulfilling Nexstar’s commitment to regulatory bodies to divest

How Lauren Jenkins Embraced Imperfection (and Beyonce) on Her Debut Album
There’s nothing but whiskey and a few ice cubes in Lauren Jenkins’ drink here at a bar in East Nashville, mostly because the Texas-born singer-songwriter can’t stand anything too sweet. Ever since she moved to Nashville in 2013, she’s found the cocktails in town to be overwhelmingly syrupy: she likes a little bitterness, and to taste the dimension in whatever she’s imbibing that day. Too much sugar, she thinks, just drowns out the character. Why dilute something, when you can have what’s real?

Post Malone Releases New Video for ‘Wow,’ His Latest Inescapable Hit

While critical consensus is still firmly against the Dallas superstar, Post Malone is likely one of the three most popular musicians in America at this instant. Just look at “Wow.” — a loose single, unmoored from any sort of full-length project, yet currently sitting at Number Five on the Billboard Hot 100 three months after its release and, crucially, without a video.

The song — which also recently received an unexpected jolt from Roddy Ricch on its remix — will likely only rise from its current lofty position. On Wednesday, Post Malone released the video for the track,
