Universal Ordered To Pay Fired Exec Josh Goldstine $20M By Arbitrator; Seth Byers Cleared Of “Inappropriate” Behavior – Update

  • Deadline
(Updated With Seth Byers Details) Nearly two years after he was shown the door at Universal following undisclosed “inappropriate conduct” allegations, the studio’s former president of marketing Josh Goldstine has emerged with his name cleared and his bank account apparently quite healthy. While nowhere up in the eight digit pay out range, fired Universal Evp, Creative Strategy and Research, Seth Byers has also emerged from the dark shadow of his termination back in early 2018.

After months of declarations and depositions, a behind-closed-doors arbitration ruling more than a week ago determined that then Jeff Shell- and Donna Langley-run Universal Pictures rushed to judgment against the long-serving exec and Byers in 2018. Whether in the #MeToo wheelhouse or not, the precise details of why Byers was axed and Goldstine was fired in March 2018 after the latter was placed on administrative leave a month before remained unrevealed.

Rare Spider-Man Twin Towers Teaser Has Been Restored in 4K
An incredibly rare Spider-Man teaser has been found and restored in 4K. The footage was shown in theaters ahead of A Knight's Tale in 2001, a full year before the movie hit theaters and it featured the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center. The scene in question was specifically shot for the teaser and did not end up in the movie and was withdrawn after the 9/11 terrorist attack in September 2001. Raimi also went in and took out any scenes featuring the Twin Towers.

The 2001 Spider-Man teaser has been in circulation for years now, but it has been in very poor quality. The new 4K restoration was "scanned from a 35mm print in 4K" and then color-corrected to fix grading. The results are beyond comparison to what has been floating around the internet for nearly 20 years. In the footage, which was never intended to be used in the movie, a team

Sinister 3 Isn't Happening, But a TV Show Is Possible

Blumhouse has quickly become one of the top names in horror over the past decade or so. From hits like the Paranormal Activity franchise to the Insidious flicks, Blumhouse seems to spawn popular film franchises like hotcakes. But then you have something like Sinister which tried to go the franchise route, but seemed to have stalled out following its lackluster sequel. But does that mean the Sinister series is dead-dead? Yeah, it looks like it. Today we have word via Blumhouse head honcho himself Jason Blum that it doesn't look like there will ever be a Sinister 3... but there might be a TV series in the works.

Blum shared this update over on Twitter where he recently conducted a Q & A with fans. Pretty quickly after kicking off the session, a fan asked Jason Blum if Sinister 3 was a possibility. To which Blum simply replied.

20 Crazy Details About The Making Of A Knight's Tale

A Knight's Tale is a difficult movie to define. Is it a period piece or a rock musical? Is it a coming-of-age adventure or a romance? Is it historical fiction or a sports movie? The answer to all these questions is "yes," as writer-director Brian Helgeland made a film that bent every genre it touched.

The film stars Heath Ledger as William Thatcher, a peasant whose father apprentices him to a wandering knight, Sir Ector. When the knight passes away, instead of finding a new job, William and his fellow squires (played by Mark Addy and Alan Tudyk) set up a deception. William pretends to be a knight, using his skills learned from his former master to become the greatest jouster in the land.

Along the way, they meet a colorful cast of characters including the famous writer Geoffrey Chaucer (Paul Bettany), the stubborn blacksmith Kate (Laura Fraser), the lovely
