‘Creed 2’ Begins Production With Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone
It’s all happening: Creed 2 — officially titled Creed II because roman numerals are serious business — has begun production with Sylvester Stallone, Michael B.

Report: Woody Allen’s Next Movie May Get Dumped by Amazon
As the #MeToo movement continues to swell, familiar allegations against a prolific director have resurfaced — and this time, Hollywood is listening. Dylan Farrow recently gave her first television interview to reiterate longstanding accusations that her father, Woody Allen, sexually assaulted her when she was just seven years old. Farrow’s statements came on the heels of reports that several actors that had appeared in Allen’s films — both recent and in the past — had either denounced the director or donated their salaries to relevant charities in support of the Time’s Up movement. According to a new report, Allen’s time may finally be up as well.

Is it Star Wars? Could it be Star Wars? Is Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy finally hiring a woman to direct a friggin’ Star War?!

And no, she can’t tell you what it is (yet).
Rare ‘Breakfast Club’ Deleted Scene Takes You Inside the Girls’ Bathroom
Over three decades after The Breakfast Club first charmed audiences, John Hughes’ high school classic still resonates with young viewers despite the growing generational divide. The years since its initial release have proven that The Breakfast Club is timeless, so it’s about damn time The Criterion Collection gave Hughes’ film the prestige upgrade treatment.

‘The Last Jedi’: Mark Hamill’s Second Role and Tom Hardy’s Cut Cameo Revealed
If, for some non-sensical reason, you have yet to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi, then you should probably close this window ASAP because there are some POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHEAD. If you are an intellectual human who has already seen Rian Johnson’s sequel (more than once, no doubt), then feel free to read on for the low-down on a couple of cameos — including that heavily-rumored Tom Hardy appearance, which was (sadly) cut from the film.
Actress Accuses Dustin Hoffman of Sexual Misconduct on Broadway
Just days after television host John Oliver confronted Dustin Hoffman during a tense Q&A following a screening of Wag the Dog, another woman has come forward with allegations of sexual misconduct.

Patrick Stewart Wants in On Quentin Tarantino‘s ‘Star Trek’
Quentin Tarantino is not only developing a Star Trek movie with J.J. Abrams, but he’s convinced Paramount to let him make an R-rated feature. And if Paramount can get behind that wacky insanity, then who knows what other zany tricks are up Tarantino’s sleeve — all of which is to say that maybe we shouldn’t be surprised every time there’s a new story about this movie. Anything is possible, including the potential for Patrick Stewart to reprise his role as Jean-Luc Picard, which is exactly what he’d like to do.
Quentin Tarantino’s Next Movie Will Officially Arrive in 2019
Sony has set a release date for Quentin Tarantino’s new film, which is sorta-kinda-not-really about the Manson Family murders. The project is the acclaimed filmmaker’s first without the involvement of disgraced former Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein.
