Inspiration can come from the most unanticipated places, like walking the dog in the park or buying a soft pretzel at the mall. For Morgan Cooper , it came in 2019 while driving down Route 71 in Kansas City, Missouri. Heading home after shooting a low-budget beauty commercial, Cooper concocted a plan to turn ’90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air into a gritty short film, with Will Smith ’s iconic character reimagined as an unlucky Philly teen who gets caught with a gun during a playground brawl.

A Los Angeles Superior Court judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by Marilyn Manson ’s former assistant over the statute of limitations, which expired after two years from the alleged crimes. Ashley Walter’s initial suit against the vocalist, whose real name is Brian Warner, alleged sexual assault, sexual battery, sexual harassment, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, among other claims.
