No upcoming concerts for John Hinckley Jr., it seems. In his first television interview since his unconditional release this month, the man who shot President Ronald Reagan in an attempted assassination attempt told CBS Mornings today that his three recently canceled singer-songwriter performances at venues in Brooklyn, Chicago and Connecticut won’t be rescheduled in what correspondent Major Garrett said was the “foreseeable future.” Watch the interview above.

TMZSports.com If it were up to Dana White , a boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Conor McGregor would never go down again ... with the UFC honcho telling TMZ Sports , "I have less than zero interest in seeing that again." Of course, Conor made it seem like a May-Pac run-back could be on the horizon ... after he posted a photo on his Instagram earlier this month of him boxing Mayweather with the caption "I accept."

"I didn't even know that," White said. "I haven't seen it." Mayweather and McGregor made a ton of cash the first time the two boxed back in August 2017 -- it reportedly had more than 4 MILLION pay-per-view buys -- but the two are in vastly different places in their careers now.

In a conversation with Alec Baldwin livestreamed on Instagram, Woody Allen said he plans to direct “one or two more” films, but also said “the thrill is gone” because of the decline of the theatrical experience. Without revealing details about the project, Allen said he will direct a film that will shoot in Paris in the late-summer or early fall.

Even before Covid, Allen said, the challenging environment for traditional theatrical releases was starting to weigh on him. “When I started, … [Read more...] about Woody Allen Plans To Make “One Or Two More” Films, But “The Thrill Is Gone” Due To Decline Of Movie Theaters
