Here's the Scoop...

Amber Heard is attempting to take Johnny Depp to court over their $7 million divorce settlement.

The 30-year-old actress filed a Request for Order with the Los Angeles Superior Court this week after Depp allegedly failed to make payments, according to E! News.

Heard is also requesting attorney's fees and costs up to $35,435. Additionally, her lawyers claim Depp has failed to meet court-enforced deadlines for various mandates, including the division of personal property and shipping Heard's belongings from his private island in the Bahamas.

The Rum Diaries co-stars reached their divorce settlement in August. Heard announced the same month that she will donate the entire $7 million to her preferred charities, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles.

"As described in the restraining order and divorce settlement, money played no role for me personally and never has, except to the extent that I could donate it to charity and, in doing so, hopefully help those less able to defend themselves," the actress said at the time.

Depp reportedly agreed to pay Heard directly, but donated $200,000 to the ACLU and Children's Hospital in August. Heard's team later rejected Depp's proposal to donate the rest of the money directly to the charities in installments.

"Johnny is obligated by the settlement to pay Amber, and she in turn will honor her pledges to Children's Hospital and the American Civil Liberties Union," Heard's lawyer, Pierce O'Donnell, told People this month.

Heard filed for divorce from Depp in May after less than two years of marriage. She alleged at the time that the actor was abusive, and was granted a restraining order shortly after filing for divorce.

She wants that pirate's booty! Arrrrrrr!

Ben Affleck says his solo Batman film will begin shooting in the spring: 'I'm very excited'
Ben Affleck said his highly-anticipated Batman solo film will begin shooting this coming spring.

"We're on the right track with that and everything is coming together," the actor and filmmaker said of starting in the spring to Variety during a recent screening of his upcoming crime thriller Live by Night.

"We're still finishing up a script. I'm very excited," he continued.

Affleck is directing the Batman picture and working on the script alongside famed comic book writer and DC Entertainment head Geoff Johns.

Joe Manganiello has been cast in the film as the formidable assassin Deathstroke and news has come out that iconic whip-wielding burglar Catwoman will not be making an appearance.

Affleck discussed the Dark Knight's storied film history with Variety and said how much he respects previous onscreen incarnations of the character.

"I respect all of those [Batman] movies," the 44-year-old said. "Christopher Nolan did an incredible job, Christian Bale did an incredible job, Tim Burton did an incredible job. At a certain point you have to look forward and try to believe in your own vision for it and not be looking over your shoulder the whole time. I go into that movie with a tremendous amount of respect for the people who came before me."


'Foxy Brown' series starring Meagan Good in development at Hulu
Meagan Good is set to portray cult film hero Foxy Brown in a new television series currently in development at streaming service Hulu.

According to Deadline, Empire co-executive producer Malcolm Spellman and Hand of God creator Ben Watkins will be penning the project with executive producers Tony Krantz, Jason Weinberg, Evan Hainey and Good's husband DeVon Franklin.

The original 1974 film Foxy Brown famously starred actress Pam Grier in the title role as a woman out for revenge after her boyfriend is murdered by a drug syndicate.

MGM who owns the rights to the film is the studio behind the new series under their MGM TV banner.

A box-office success when it was released, Foxy Brown has influenced other films such as Austin Powers in Goldmember with Beyonce's character Foxxy Cleopatra taking after Foxy Brown and Quentin Tarantino's Jackie Brown which also starred Grier.

The role marks the latest television project for Good after starring in Fox's Minority Report based on the Steven Spielberg film of the same name and NBC's Deception. She is next set to appear in Lifetime movie The 10th Date alongside Kelly Rowland.
