Original ‘Aladdin’ Co-Writer Says Disney Isn’t Paying Him Anything for the Live-Action Remake
The teaser trailer for Guy Ritchie’s Aladdin dropped last night, and reactions to the first look at Disney’s latest live-action remake are wildly mixed (it looks weird). But there’s one reaction that particularly stands out: That of Terry Rossio, one of four screenwriters on Disney’s original animated Aladdin, who claims that the studio isn’t crediting — or paying — any of them despite adapting their script for the remake.
‘Black Panther 2’: Ryan Coogler Officially Returning to Write and Direct
Black Panther broke a few box office records, became a massive worldwide hit, and generated a little Oscar buzz along the way — pretty much guaranteeing a sequel and making Ryan Coogler’s return to the director’s chair seem fairly likely. That likelihood just became a certainty, as Coogler has reportedly signed on to write and direct Black Panther 2 for Marvel.

MoviePass Is Trying to Re-Enroll Subscribers Without Their Consent (Again)
MoviePass continues to suffer the longest, slowest, and most painful death in business history. Rather than admit defeat, the company is delaying the inevitable. According to an email sent out late last week, they’re still trying to trick former users into re-enrolling in their increasingly laughable service — by automatically enrolling them in a “test group” unless they choose to opt out.
Former ‘Sesame Street’ Writer Confirms Bert and Ernie Are Gay, Workshop Responds With Denial
Many Sesame Street viewers have long suspected — including a few wise kiddos — that puppet odd couple Bert and Ernie are more than just friends. The prolific children’s series has never really addressed Bert and Ernie’s sexual orientation, but a former writer for Sesame Street confirms what most of us felt in our hearts all along…even if the show itself continues to issue denials.

‘The Romanoffs’ Trailer: ‘Mad Men’ Creator Returns With an Insane Anthology
The Romanoffs raised some eyebrows with its first trailer — the size of the amazing ensemble cast alone seemed wildly ambitious, and left us wondering how Matthew Weiner could gracefully juggle all these interconnected story lines. But the new trailer for the Mad Men creator’s Amazon series comes with some additional details that shed light on Weiner’s approach: It’s an anthology.
‘IT: Chapter Two’ Will Feature One of the Book’s Wildest Moments (No, Not That One)
There are some pretty bonkers moments in Stephen King’s IT, including a couple that would fall pretty low on the list of “most likely to be included in a film adaptation.” As it turns out, at least one of those scenes — a climactic supernatural confrontation — will appear in IT: Chapter Two, Andy Muschietti’s sequel to last year’s hit adaptation of the iconic horror novel. Before you get worried, it’s not THAT scene.
‘Bond 25’ Director Shortlist Adds Two More Names to the Mix

Burt Reynolds Died Before Filming His Part in ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’
When Burt Reynolds was cast in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, it seemed like the perfect farewell for the aging Hollywood icon. The 82-year-old actor hadn’t been acting much in recent years, and his supporting role as the owner of a former stunt ranch in Quentin Tarantino’s ninth movie was sure to be his last. Unfortunately, we’ll never see Reynolds on the big screen again, as the actor passed away earlier today — before he ever had a chance to film his final part.
