The movie swept audience by their feet and wrote new history in the books of Tollywood. With respect to certain pages of film-making, [email protected] arguably cements its place in the all-time top 5 movies of Tollywood. After a huge gap of 28 Years, the exciting duo is all set to join hands for yet another movie.

The yet to be titled movie is touted to be a cop drama and the same was launched in Annapurna studios on Monday(Nov 20). Close sources claim that the movie will be filled with high voltage action sequences and the movie is expected to be shot till February 2018.

The movie will be hitting theatres sometime during April 2018 one will have to wait for 2 more quarters to witness whether the vibrant pair would recreate the same magic what they were able to achieve 3 decades ago.

Akhil-Koratala Combo

Akhil’s much talked and hyped second flick, Hello, is all set to see a grand release on 22nd December and the teaser of the movie has garnered positive response from the audience.

Even the trade seems positive as the pre-release business numbers are touted to be quite high, considering the fact that Hello is just the second movie the Akkineni lad. With the joy of Hello yet to sink in, there comes another interesting update leading to a non-stop celebration.

Hat-trick director, Koratala Siva will be collaborating with Akhil. Siva is busy with the Mahesh Babu starrer, Bharat Ane Nenu, which is all set to release by April 2018. If all goes well, the Akhil-Siva project would take off by the first quarter of 2018.

Sizzling Pair Of Nagarjuna-Anushka Shetty

After Nagarjuna-Amala and Nagarjuna-Tabu, the best on-screen partner to compliment the King was Anushka Shetty. The tall and beautiful Mangalore girl started her career with Nagarjuna and the successful pair was seen in as many as 8 movies such as Super, Don, King, Ragada, Damarukam, Soggade Chinni Nayana (Guest Appearance), Oopiri (Guest Appearance) & Om Namo Venkatesaya.

Nagarjuna, of late has shifted his focus gear towards character oriented scripts which was evident in his recent flicks, Soggade Chinni Nayana, Manam, Oopiri, Om Namo Venkatesaya & Raju Gaari Gadhi 2. With the sensual pair getting back together on-screen, one could expect another mass commercial movie in the lines of Ragada or Super.

Kevin Hart hints at rebooting Mrs Doubtfire after starring in Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle

Published

on

Kevin Hart might be enjoying the positive response to the Jumanji reboot, Jumaji: Welcome To The Jungle, where he is starring alongside Dwayne Johnson and Jack Black, but the internet might be alarmed by his latest musings, a Mrs Doubtfire remake as reported by NME.

“I’ll stay on the Robin Williams train and say that if I could jump into Mrs Doubtfire,” said the actor-comedian in an interview to CinemaBlend. “That was a very amazing performance on both ends for him. I think that’s one I’d love to get to play in,” said Hart.

A reboot of the beloved 1995 Robin Williams hit Jumanji, where the characters got sucked into the world of a board game and have to fight for their survival, had Kevin Hart joining a new adventure, where Jumanji is a video game in its 2017 avatar.

However, since Robin Williams passed away recently and has immortalized the character of Mrs Doubtfire, fans of the film might not take kindly to a contemporary reboot of the film. The role will indeed prove very challenging for any actor to convincingly place himself in William’s shoes.

Perhaps, Hart should stay content with the fate of Jumanji: Welcome to The Jungle and not worry about remakes of Robin William’s classics, and perhaps take a cue from fellow actor Jack Black who had chosen to pay his homage to William via less grander pronouncements.

Ed Sheeran says he already has a James Bond track up his sleeve in case MGM wants one

Published

on

Ed Sheeran might have faced a surprising Grammy rebuff this year, but the British singer continues to ride high with two of his singles, one with Beyonce and another with Eminem, competing for the top spot just as the year is ending. Amidst all this excitement, the singer-songwriter has revealed that he already has a James Bond song ready to go in his kitty, in case they need him to do one, as reported by the Independent.

Sheeran appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden and discussed the possibility of contributing a track to a future James Bond movie. “With Bond, I’ve had a theme tune written for about three years, just in case,” he said, as reported by the Indepndent.

Even though he has not been approached by the makers of the Bond franchise with such a request yet, he said that the song he has already prepared is good but refused to reveal its name fearing someone might steal it.

Sheeran also said in the same interview that he had used the same approach for his song with Eminem. “When we did a song together, I had the song planned. So with Bond, if ever I’m called I’ll be like ‘here you go’,” said Sheeran.

While a reluctant Daniel Craig had recently confirmed that he is once again playing James Bond in the next film, the now unofficial tradition of a reigning music star to lend a soundtrack to the iconic franchise will continue, but who will be the latest artist to bag this coveted opportunity is not yet known. Sam Smith did the honours in the previous Bond outing and was criticised for a weak track that he had claimed he came up with in 20 minutes.

Ed Sheeran sure seems better prepared if he gets a call to compose the Bond track that might even put the talented artist up for an Oscar, perhaps the only recognition eluding the superstar so far.

Rose McGowan calls out Meryl Streep, other actresses for planning silent protest at 2018 Golden Globes

Published

on

Rose McGowan criticised Meryl Streep and other actresses for allegedly planning a silent protest against sexual harassment at the 75th Golden Globe Awards ceremony in January next year.

Multiple sources told People magazine about the protest being organised by prominent Hollywood actresses — including presenters and nominees and it was later confirmed by Claudia and Jackie Oshry on their show The Morning Breath.

However, McGowan was not particularly happy about the ‘silent’ nature of the protest. She took to Twitter to express her dismay.

She wrote: “Actresses, like Meryl Streep, who happily worked for The Pig Monster, are wearing black @GoldenGlobes in a silent protest. YOUR SILENCE is THE problem. You’ll accept a fake award breathlessly & affect no real change. I despise your hypocrisy. Maybe you should all wear Marchesa.”

She has since deleted the tweet.

McGowan, one of the first actresses to accuse fallen movie mogul Harvey Weinstein of rape, decried what she believed was a pervasive culture of sexual misconduct in Hollywood and urged women to fight back. After leveling her accusations against Weinstein, there has since been a torrent of allegations of sexual harassment, assault and rape against a man who had been one of the most powerful people in the film industry. The New York Times has reported that in 1997, Weinstein reached a $100,000 settlement with McGowan, then 23, after an incident in a hotel room during the Sundance Film Festival. As the scandal snowballed, McGowan has emerged as one of Weinstein’s most scathing critics.

When Extra asked Streep for a comment, she replied: “I don’t know. I’m not talking. You gotta tune in, don’t ya?”
