Chris Rock Teams Up With Lionsgate To Reboot The ‘Saw’ Franchise

Lately some of our favorite shows and movies from back in the day have been making comebacks! The “Saw” franchise is next on the list of who’s making a comeback and this time around Chris Rock is teaming up with Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures for the next film.

According to Deadline, Chris wrote a story that is being adapted by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg. Chris is also on board to executive produce the film, which is scheduled to release in October of 2020.

Rock expressed his excitement for the project saying, “I’ve been a fan of Saw since the first film in 2004. I am excited by the opportunity to take this to a really intense and twisted new place.”

Joe Drake, Lionsgate’s Motion Picture Group chairman said, “When Chris Rock came to us and described in chilling detail his fantastic vision that re-imagines and spins off the world of the notorious Jigsaw Killer, we were all in.”

He continued, “Saw is one of the highest-grossing horror franchises of all-time, and it’s one of Lionsgate’s most successful film series. This upcoming film will still be as mind-bending and intense as all the previous Saw films. Chris conceived this idea, and it will be completely reverential to the legacy of the material while reinvigorating the brand with his wit, creative vision, and passion for this classic horror franchise.”

Are we excited about this or nah?!

Karlie Kloss and New ‘Project Runway’ Judges on the Show’s Kinder, Gentler Reboot

When “Project Runway” launched in 2004, it pulled back the curtain on the fashion industry, made Michael Kors a household name, and elevated the role of designer into the pop culture pantheon. Running for 16 seasons with guest judges including Kim Kardashian, Victoria Beckham, Sarah Jessica Parker and Ciara, the show introduced such memorable moments as the Gristedes challenge and the Thunder From Down Under challenge. And it gave millions of wannabes dreams of making it like Christian Siriano, the biggest success story among the winners.
After a nearly two-year hiatus, the show returns on March 14 to Bravo for its 17th season, reimagined for now. New host, model Karlie Kloss, who is also executive producer, is joined by a new mentor (Siriano) in the Tim Gunn role, and three regular judges — Elle magazine editor in chief Nina Garcia, a veteran of the show’s earlier iteration; former Teen Vogue editor Elaine Welteroth, and designer Brandon Maxwell.
The 17 designers competing have a range of experience, and hail from all over the world, including one contestant who is a Syrian refugee, and others who are from India and Samoa. The show will put a new emphasis on inclusion, featuring models of all races

Why Daniel Radcliffe thinks Harry Potter will get a reboot

Here for it?

So you consider yourself a bit of a Potterhead. You’ve looked into studying Harry Potter law at uni and you’re convinced by this Snape death theory because it all makes so much sense. You also feel pretty smug when you tell people that science has shown people who read Harry Potter are nicer, and you’re the first to know when there’s a HP reunion in real life.

But how do you feel about a Harry Potter reboot?

Considering that they’re now a Christmas telly staple, it feels like we’ve always had the movies in our lives – but it was just nine short years ago that we watched the final instalment.

However, Daniel Radcliffe sounds pretty certain that there’ll be a reboot at some point in the not so distant future.

He told IGN: ‘I’m sure there will be some other version of it; I know I’m not the last Harry Potter I’m gonna see in my lifetime – we’ve already got a few more.

‘It will be interesting to see how long those films stay… it feels like there’s a sacredness around them at the moment, but that’ll go, the shine will wear off at some point… It’ll be interesting if they reboot them and just do the films again or do a series. I’m fascinated to watch.’

New films? A series? We can’t deal.

Daniel also revealed what his fave film is – and it’s not what you’d expect.

He told Wired: ‘I love the last one, but I also really love the fifth, which is not a lot of people’s favourite, I kind of realise.’

So why Order of the Phoenix?

He continued: ‘I love it because of the relationship between Harry and Sirius [Black], and you get a lot of Gary Oldman in that movie.’

Interesting.

It may have been six years since Gossip Girl left our screens, but it still feels like it was just yesterday.

And while the show’s end left a Blair and Chuck shaped hole in our hearts, it also left us with a lot of questions.

Does Henry Bass have any siblings? How are Serena and Dan enjoying married life? Are Georgina and Jack Bass actually together now? And please tell us that William Van Der Woodsen has been discovered as the biggest villain ever – well, second biggest if we’re counting Bart Bass.

After unanswered calls for a reboot of the CW show, we had all given up hope, but today the news we have all been waiting for finally arrived.

Gossip Girl might well be coming back.

Yes, this is not a drill. We repeat. This is not a drill.

CW President Mark Pedowitz confirmed that there was a conversation about a GG reboot just this week, telling reporters at the TV Critics’ Association press tour: ‘There’s a discussion, but I don’t know if we’re there yet. I don’t know what it would be.

‘A lot is up to Warner Bros. and Josh and Steph, cause you don’t want to do anything without them,’ he continued, referencing Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage, the show’s executive producers.

Providing they say yes though, we could well see a GG reunion very soon.

‘SNL’ Recap: Steve Carell and ‘The Office’ Cast Hash Out a Reboot

SNL 44x06 Recap

Saturday Night Live host Steve Carell was joined by some familiar faces from The Office for a reunion and some reboot discussion during the Saturday, November 17, episode, which also featured musical guest Ella Mai.

Reboot, Please!

Right out of the gate, an audience member asked Carell during his monologue if he would ever reboot The Office. He quickly shot down the idea, but then his former castmates Jenna Fischer, Ed Helms and Ellie Kemper showed up to encourage him. Even the actor’s wife, Nancy Carell, who played Michael’s girlfriend Carol on the sitcom, and his kids, Elisabeth and John, stopped by to tell him to do it. Carell finally brought his costars onstage to say, “I am proud to announce officially that … we have a great show tonight,” as the Office theme song played.

RBG

Pete Davidson and Chris Redd rapped about their love for Ruth Bader Ginsburg after the Supreme Court Justice broke three ribs. The pair repeated, “Live Ginsburg, ride for Ginsburg,” while Kate McKinnon break-danced as her beloved saucier version of the lawmaker.

Dad, Is That You?!

Carell appeared to a high school dropout as a “hunky angel” who sang his version of Grease‘s “Beauty School Dropout.” The catch? One of the girls at the sleepover was his daughter, played by Aidy Bryant. The young girl chided her father for leaving the family to give advice to teenage girls. Carell’s wacky commitment to the deadbeat dad and Bryant’s delivery of various scolds made for a surprisingly laughable sketch.

Big Baller

Kenan Thompson’s LaVar Ball brought his usual level of excitement to a “Weekend Update” segment. The father of Los Angeles Laker Lonzo Ball joked about everything from LeBron James having a restraining order against him to his other two sons, LiAngelo and LaMelo, playing basketball in his Lithuanian league.

Space Slipup

Frozen monkeys, frozen people, cats without faces … it all sounds terrifying. But when it’s actually stuffed animals, McKinnon beating her head against a glass window repeatedly without breaking and Carell’s NASA astronaut spiraling, it’s pretty random and hilarious.

The CW’s Charmed Reboot Is So Political, It Forgot to Be Fun

There’s nothing new about the politicization of witches. They’ve been a barometer for American society’s attitudes toward women since, well, 17th-century Salem. Hundreds of years later, the archetype evolved into a pop-cultural referendum on feminism in particular. While the 1960s brought the adorable domestic subversions of Samantha Stephens on Bewitched, the liberated Witches of Eastwick coincided with a transition from the early-’80s porn wars to the sex-positive feminism that reigned in the ’90s. Witches dominated the latter decade, from the teen outcasts of The Craft to ABC’s plucky Sabrina Spellman to Hocus Pocus’ campy coven. In 1998, Aaron Spelling got in on the trend with Charmed. Three sisters who owned a nightclub and wore going-out tops to fight demons, the drama’s Charmed Ones were yet another sign of the times.

Twenty years later, witches are back (see: The Witch, American Horror Story: Coven, The Love Witch, Netflix’s upcoming Chilling Adventures of Sabrina) and so is Charmed. Premiering Oct. 14 on the CW, the reboot is very obviously courting the Gen Z feminist zeitgeist. Following the death of their women’s studies professor mother, Marisol (Valerie Cruz), three half-sisters—all young women of color—learn that she was a witch. And it turns out they’re witches, too; Marisol had just temporarily bound their powers so that they could grow up like garden-variety humans. But with Mom out of the picture, the trio’s abilities are suddenly activated.

While the original sisters had aspirational jobs in creative industries, the lives of their 2018 counterparts revolve around the university where Marisol taught. The baby of the family, Maggie (Sarah Jeffery), is a wide-eyed freshman who worries that her witch commitments will prove incompatible with sorority life. A grad student with a detective girlfriend (Ellen Tamaki), middle child Mel (Melonie Diaz) embraces both the “angry feminist” label and the matriarchal tradition that witchcraft represents. Only after their mother’s death do Mel and Maggie learn that they have an older half-sister, Macy (Madeleine Mantock), a molecular geneticist who works in the college’s labs and harbors a scientist’s skepticism about the supernatural. When they team up, the triad’s powers are unparalleled.

Schooling them in the ways of Wicca is Rupert (Harry Greenwood), a bookish British guardian angel in the vein of Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. He has just taken over for Marisol as chair of the women’s studies department, and his appointment raises the hackles of Mel, who is furious to see a “cis male” given the position. Her first encounter with Rupert reveals just how relentlessly woke the new Charmed wants to be: His claim to legitimacy, you see, is that he’s been retweeted by Roxane Gay. If you don’t follow the feminist author on Twitter, take your confusion as a hint that you’re not part of the show’s target audience.

Though the reboot looks like it will stick close to the original’s monster-of-the-week format, its overarching themes are ripped from 2018’s front-page headlines. And that would have been fine if the driving forces behind it, executive producers Jessica O’Toole, Amy Rardin, and Jennie Snyder Urman, trusted their young viewers enough to make the political commentary less thuddingly obvious. Centered around a creepy professor who is reinstated after a skewed sexual misconduct investigation, the pilot finds Mel posting “Time’s Up” flyers with his face on them around campus. You can guess who the demons are based on who seems baffled by the idea of continuous consent. And in the most ham-fisted moment of the episode, Rupert not only reads a prophecy detailing a cataclysmic moment “when the weakest of men reaches ill-gotten glory” but provides an unnecessary translation: “Suffice to say it’s your current president.”

The intentions behind Charmed were clearly pure. Lively performances from Diaz and Jeffery make the pilot significantly more fun than it could have been. Yet the series is especially disappointing coming from Urman, the mind behind the CW’s excellent Jane the Virgin, which has tackled such issues as immigration and abortion without sacrificing character development or forsaking its thrilling telenovela twists. Though they’re grounded in progressive values—feminism, anti-racism, diverse representation—shows like Jane are first and foremost solidly constructed stories that provoke thought. To see what well-meaning propaganda masquerading as entertainment actually looks like, look no further than Charmed.
