According to a popular industry tracker, initial talks have begun for the Atlee and Vijay project. Thenandal FIlms will be producing the project if and when it happens. The project is being pitched with a budget of over Rs.300 Crore apparently. Atlee, on his birthday, had shared a picture of him with Vijay and Shah Rukh from his birthday party. The fans had started trending #Thalapathy68 in anticipation that Vijay would do a project with Atlee. Looks like the fans have been heard. It is possible that film gets pushed behind for another project maybe, but could still happen in the near future. If not Thalapathy 68 , then perhaps 69, or 70. This film's confirmation could be impacted by the performance of Shah Rukh Khan's Jawan as well. Jawan is being directed by Atlee, and stars Shah Rukh and Nayanthara in lead roles.

Alan Rickman , the late Harry Potter star, is making his mixed feelings about sticking with the franchise known through diary entries published Saturday by The Guardian. The diary entries about Potter demonstrate Rickman’s devotion to his character Professor Severus Snape but also his reluctance to lock himself in to a long-running franchise. As early as 2002, just after the release of Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets , the second installment of the series, Rickman wrote that he’d spoken to his agent: “Reiterating no more HP. They don’t want to hear it.” Rickman opted to continue as Snape, however, a decision that was reinforced just before the filming of the fifth entry in 2005: The actor had been diagnosed with prostate cancer, and decided to see Potter through to its end. “Finally, yes to HP 5,” he writes. “The sensation is neither up nor down. The argument that wins is the one that says: ‘See it through. It’s your story.'” Rickman, who died from … [Read more...] about Alan Rickman Diaries Chronicle Ever-Changing Feelings On ‘Harry Potter’ Franchise

Courage Under Fire: Under Siege and Outnumbered 58 to 1 on January 6 will be published on January 3, 2023, just before the 2-year anniversary of the assault on the capitol building. Deadline understands the publishing deal is in the seven-figure range.

The bipartisan body has spent months in its effort to understand and convey to the public the full scope … [Read more...] about Key January 6 Figure Steven Sund Inks Book Deal, Promising New Details From His Time As Capitol Police Chief
Giant theater chain AMC Entertainment filed today to sell up to 425 million AMC Preferred Equity Units, or APEs, its new securities that have seen a price collapse amid a sour market and investor backlash. They sank some more early Monday, then popped higher. AMC distributed the initial batch of APE shares to stockholders in August and they trade on the NYSE. Each APE unit has the same economic and voting rights as one share of common stock. CEO Adam Aron characterized the distribution as a gift but AMC’s large base of retail shareholders disagreed. This vocal group had previously derailed AMC’s plans to issue new common stock, preventing the company from raising cash to help pay down its hefty debt of about $5.4 billion. So the APEs were a workaround; a new currency AMC can sell to raise fresh funds without shareholder approval. “It was a nice way to get around their investors, who weren’t going to let them issue more shares to raise more cash. But investors … [Read more...] about AMC Entertainment Files To Sell Up To 425 Million APE Shares To Pay Down Debt
