The Institute could be the next King project to be adapted by Hollywood, joining The Stand (CBS All Access), The Outsider (HBO), and Lisey’s Story (Apple TV+) — plus the seven movies he has in development. King has script approval on all of them. “The scripts have to work,” he says. “They can’t have 19 pages of flashbacks to when the characters were kids. I want the pedal to the metal as much of the time as possible.” … [Read more...] about Stephen King on His New Horror Novel, the ‘Nightmare’ of Trump, and ‘Stranger Things’
Ask anyone about Bradley Cooper, and the reaction is the same: "There's nobody who's better liked," says his childhood friend Brian Klugman, who co- directed The Words. Robert De Niro has invited Cooper to stay at his house several times; colleagues including The Hangover's Justin Bartha and Cooper's then-girlfriend Renee Zellweger showed up for his Inside the Actors Studio taping; and demanding directors like David O. Russell (The Fighter) are eager to work with him again and again. … [Read more...] about Bradley Cooper: The Serious Evolution of a Leading Man

Something needed to be done; Kathryn and Jeremy recognized they couldn’t continue onward like this. The “wait and see” approach had made sense in theory. But as Coy got older, they began to realize there was no middle ground. When it came to gender, they would have to choose one or the other, pink or blue. It also struck them that, by allowing Coy to be a girl at home and forcing him to be a boy at school, they had effectively helped their child to carve out a closeted double life. “We were thinking, ‘If we give you a safe space to be who you are, that’s our way of being supportive,'” recalls Kathryn. “But we were really sending the opposite message: It’s not safe, but we’ll give you a place to hide.” They were ready for a new approach.

Next up for the DCEU is Wonder Woman, which is set to hit theaters on June 2. That movie is pretty much squared away, so it isn't overly likely John Cleese will show up there, especially given his stack of research material. Justice League has wrapped and is in post-production, and is coming out on November 17. So there is a possibility for him to show up there in a smaller role, which could springboard into a larger role later. Similar to what is being done with J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon. With 2 out of the 3 books being Batman titles, it seems most likely he will be in The Batman, but there is no release date set for that movie and things seem a little less certain with that project, though, it is almost certainly happening at some point. You can check out the photo of John Cleese for yourself below and speculate away. … [Read more...] about John Cleese Teases DC Movie Role, Who Is He Playing?
