Bad Boys 3 to be Released

Fans of Bad Boys should be happy to find out that a third movie will be released. The sequel to Bad Boys was announced by Martin Lawrence, who claimed that the new movie is in development. 

The revelations were made by Martin Lawrence during his appearance on Conan, on Wednesday night. So, the famous actor was actually asked by the show host if a Bad Boy 3 movie might be released and the actor claimed that this will actually happen soon.  “I believe so, yes. I just talked to Jerry Bruckheimer yesterday and he said it’s real; they’re working on the script, they’re getting close, and it all looks good.”

This is not the first time when such a news surfaced. In fact, last year in September it has been revealed that Jerry Bruckheimer is working at such a project. Back then it has been claimed that the star was working to develop a script for Bad Boys 3. 

Well, Martin Lawrence claimed that the project is in the works, but revealed nothing about his co-star. So, the actor did not reveal if Will Smith will star in the movie, as well, although this is definitely expected to happen. 

The first Bad Boys 3 movie was released back in 1995. The movie was a great success, so in 2003 a second Bad Boys film was out. Now, probably the two actors will team up for the third time to play the roles of detectives Marcus Burnett and Mike Lowrey. 

Besides the new movie, Martin Lawrence also talked about his fitness regimen. When being asked about how he looks so good, the comedic actor joked with a simple answer. “Crack,” he said. The actor said that he is just eating right and exercising properly. 

Now, Martin seems to be happy and focused on acting. However, the actor is known for dealing with some issues in the past. He was arrested for waving a gun on the street and also for punching a man in a club in Hollywood, on two separate incidents. 

Vince Vaughn to star in True Detective

Vince Vaughn might be starring in True Detective, new reports indicate. It seems that the famous actor is currently under negotiations with the producers of the series of a role. The Wrap reported that the Hollywood star has been approached for the main role in the famous series. 

The same reports indicate that Colin Farrell and Taylor Kitsch also have main parts in the new series. It seems that what producers are willing to do is to compensate for the amazing performance of Matthew McConaughey as Rust Cohle, and this is why they are looking for a collaboration with these fine actors. 

Well, these are just rumors for now, as HBO made no comments regarding the casting rumors. They might be willing to surprise the fans of the famous series. The show is set to return soon for its second season, so we will soon find out what producers have prepared for the fans. The need to cast someone new in the series came after Matthew McConaughey’s announcement that he will no longer be able to be part of the show.

Reports reveal that Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch and Vince Vaughn, are all in discussions for the main roles. Apparently, the fourth lead role will be to a female actress. Reports reveal that Elisabeth Moss might be getting this role in the hit crime drama. Some other famous names have been mentioned when it comes to the cast, including Brad Pitt, but it is yet to see what will happen. 

The first season of True Detective actually turned out being a surprise for everyone, mostly when it comes to the cast. The series featured Matthew McConaughey, but also Woody Harrelson. At the time when he accepted this role, Matthew was trying to make a comeback in his acting career. Matthew’s performance in True Detective has been without a doubt spectacular. This is why the expectations are huge. The series became a hit project, so there is no wonder it was renewed for a second season.

The creator of the series, Nic Pizzolatoo said that season 2 will be about “hard women, bad men and the secret occult history of the United States transportation system… I need to keep being strange.”

Big Bang Theory Stars Get Huge Salaries

Filming for The Big Bang Theory might start sooner than what everyone expects. It seems that the stars of the famous television series received the huge salaries they wanted.

It has already been revealed that production of the popular series was put on hold, as its main actors wanted an impressive raise of their salaries. Now it seems that producers have managed to reach a deal with the cast of the show. Reports indicate that actors Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki and Kaley Cuoco have all obtained a salary raise and contracts on a three year period. 

The same reports indicate that Simon Helberg and Kunal Nayyar are still in talks with producers, but most likely they will be able to get the same great deals. The other two stars of The Big Bang Theory received a salary raise in September. Apparently, Mayim Bialik and Melissa Rauch had no new negotiations with producers, but their contract will expire next year.

Reports reveal that for the three main stars of The Big Bang Theory salaries have grown from $325,000 per episode, to $1 million per episode. Naturally, this is an impressive salary for the famous actors. However, the sum is not that huge if we keep under consideration the amazing earnings of the show and its great success. The Big Bang Theory is currently watched by over 20 million people each week. 

The show is in the works for its 8th season, but production was put on hold for about one week. Now, as negotiations have ended, the famous actors of the television series will most likely return to the set. CBS has revealed earlier this year that they renewed the hit show for three more seasons. So, what is certain is that The Big Bang will have at least 10 seasons. 

It seems that fans supported the famous actors in their choice to not continue filming until getting the wanted salary. They are a great cast and they should receive what they desire, it has been claimed. Well, the show is set to return for its 8th season on Monday, September 22. The premiere episode will last one hour. 

Nick Jonas Gains Weight

It seems that Nick Jonas has gained a lot of weight. Actually, this made his brothers call him the Hulk. So, it looks that the Jonas brothers are having a lot of fun to see Nick gaining some extra pounds. 

Actually, Nick Jonas had to gain some weight for his role as a mixed martial arts fighter. The famous singer will star in the movie Kingdom, a new drama film which currently is in the works. Naturally, to be able to look like a martial arts fighter, Nick had to put on some extra weight. However, this made his brothers easily find a nickname for him. 

So, Kevin, Joe and Frankie compare Nick with the superhero Hulk. As filming for Kingdom has ended, Nick is now trying to eliminate the extra pounds. To be able to do that, he is working out a few times a week, the famous actor claimed. 

“I gained about 15 pounds of muscle for the role. I really wanted to look like an animal who internalises a lot, but when he’s in the cage and he’s fighting that’s when you see this kind of animalistic mentality that he has,” Nick actually revealed. He went on to add that his brothers “were calling me the Hulk and they were poking fun at me a little bit.”

Nick Jonas has always been careful about looks and nutrition, but the actor said that he only realized now how important they are. The singer was in fact diagnosed with type 1 diabetes about 9 years ago, when he was only 13 years old. “I really got into living a really healthy lifestyle and physical fitness last year. I saw pretty quickly how it improved my health and the diabetes. I’ve stuck with it,” the singer said. 

Well, it has been claimed that Nick Jonas achieved quite an impressive performance in the new movie in which he stars. Kingdom will be released on October 8, so there are only a few months left until we will see exactly how great his performance was. 

Big Bang Theory Contract Dispute delays Filming

The stars of the Big Bang Theory are definitely unhappy with their current contracts. It seems that the actors of the popular television series want to be better paid and the negotiations with producers have caused delays in filming. 

The Big Bang Theory is set to start its 8th season soon, but unfortunately production has not started yet, as the cast of the show and its producers cannot reach an agreement over payments and salaries. It has been revealed that the Big Bang Theory actors want bigger salaries, asking to be paid no less than $1 million per episode. 

The stars of the show, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg actually did not show up on the set for the first day of production. The four stars should have been at work on Wednesday. Well, reports indicate that negotiations still continue and it is yet to see what will happen. The Big Bang is now the most-watched television series in the United States. The show has an audience of 23.1 million and the number of The Big Bang Theory fans is without a doubt impressive throughout the world. 

At the beginning of the year, it has been revealed that the show has been renewed for no less than 3 more seasons. This means that fans should be able to watch the adventures of the group of friends until 2017. However, filming for the 8th season has been put on hold and there is no word on when the stars will return on the set.  

“Due to ongoing contract negotiations, production on The Big Bang Theory – which was originally scheduled to begin today – has been postponed” an official statement indicated. Apparently, the main actors of the show won’t return to work until they will get the desired salary, which is said to be $1 million. This move from the cast came as a surprise for everyone. 

If they will receive the desired salary, Jim Parsons, Kaley Cuoco, Kunal Nayyar and Simon Helberg will become the best paid actors in television. Currently, Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer receive the biggest salaries when it comes to television series.

Whitney Houston’s Mom Talks about Lifetime Biopic

Whitney Houston’s mom, Cissy Houston, is not a fan of the new project, Lifetime Biopic. So, Cissy publicly expressed her non-support for Lifetime’s biopic project for her late daughter. 

Cissy revealed this in a new statement she gave Entertainment Tonight. “Lifetime has chosen to go ahead with the movie about Whitney in spite of my family’s objections. No one connected with this movie knew Whitney or anything about her relationship with ex husband Bobby Brown,” the statement said. 

“In the two years since Whitney’s death, many people have stepped forward to speak about their close relationship to her. I find it difficult to believe people who knew and supposedly loved her would participate in a movie about her done by folks who didn’t know her,” it added. 

Moreover, Cissy asked for people to leave the late singer and her family alone. “We are exhausted by the continuing misinformation and comments offered by people who did not know her. Please please let her rest,” her statement concluded. So, it seems that Whitney’s mom is not happy at all with this new project and she wanted to let everyone know that this is what she feels. 

The biopic is set to star Yaya DeCosta in the main role, naturally the one of the famous singer. Angela Bassett is the one who will direct this movie. She is well known as the former co-star of the singer in Waiting to Exhale. Arlen Escarpeta and Yolanda Ross are also said to star in the new movie. The new movie is set to be released next year, so it is yet to see what will happen until then.

I Will Always Love You: The Whitney Houston Story will mostly focus on the troubled and tumultuous relationship between the famous star and her former husband Bobby Brown. Despite the statement released by Cissy Houston, Lifetime claimed that they will go on with this project. Angela Bassett also claimed that before starting to work at this project, she reached out to the family of the late singer. 

Earlier this month, Bobby Kristina Brown, the daughter of Withney Houstona and Bobby Brown blasted the director of the biopic for not casting her in the role of her mother.

Diane Keaton and Michael Douglas Bond on And So It Goes Movie Set

Diane Keaton and Michael Douglas have worked together for the first time on the set of the movie And So It Goes. Apparently, the two actors have a bond now, making a great pair in this movie. 

The two Hollywood icons play in this movie the role of a pair that seems very unlikely to find love at this point in their life. Well, Diane and Michael got along extremely well on the set of the new movie, thing which was very simple to see in their latest interview. “I guess because we felt like we knew each other. At least that’s what I did. I felt like I knew you because I’ve seen so many movies ,” Douglas said in this interview with FOX411. 

“I’m a kind of a dark squirrely guy, you know, like unpredictable so you don’t have that benefit. I had that benefit. You’re just warm and embracing and I feel like I know you,” Douglas went on to explain. The two actors were also asked about what they think about the plot of the new movie. 

“I think whenever you fall in love it’s a brand new experience and you can’t believe that you’re in that situation again or that you feel that way,” Diane Keaton explained. “So I think it’s always new and that’s what’s so great about love, falling in love “love,” not the kind of love I feel for Michael which is a love of friendship, and kindness, and generosity…,” the famous actress added. 

The two actors agreed that it may be simpler to find love when you are younger, but as you grow older, it is more unexpected to fall in love, so this is what makes it even more magical. The two actors seemed to get along very well, they joked with each other and seemed very confident in what they achieved with their roles in the new movie. 

In fact, the performances of these Hollywood icons make And So It Goes one of the most expected movies of the year. It is yet to see how great the movie is, once it will be released.
