Here's the Scoop...

Who's ready for more Indiana Jones action? Okay, you're gonna have to hold on for a bit longer.

A fifth entry in the Indiana Jones series that is reuniting star Harrison Ford with director Steven Spielberg has been delayed.

The film will be missing its previously announced July 10, 2020 release date. Filming was supposed to commence in April 2019 in the U.K. with production being pushed back months, if not a year, Variety reported.

Screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan has also yet to officially sign onto the project, where he is expected to craft a new draft from David Koepp's original screenplay , Deadline reported.

Kasdan is the son of Lawrence Kasdan who penned the first Indiana Jones film, Raiders of the Lost Ark. The father and son duo wrote the script for Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Ford will next be providing his voice in animated sequel Secret Life of Pets 2 while Spielberg is in pre-production on a remake of West Side Story. The filmmaker also plans on helming historical drama The Kidnapping of Edgardo Mortara starring Mark Rylance.

Do you want this movie to happen or do you think that Ford is too old or 'Crystal Skull' ruined Indy for all audiences? Lots of questions, uncertainty abound.

Be Well,

Science fiction writer Harlan Ellison dead at 84
Science fiction writer Harlan Ellison died in his Los Angeles home at the age of 84, his family said Thursday.

Lawyer Christine Valada wrote on Twitter that Ellison's wife, Susan Ellison, asked her to announce the writer died in his sleep and that arrangements for a celebration of life were pending.

Ellison was born in Painesville, Ohio, in 1934 and moved to California in 1962.

While in California he worked as a writer at Walt Disney Studios, but was fired for making irreverent suggestions about the company's characters.

Throughout his career Ellison wrote stories including "Jeffty Is Five," "'Repent, Harlequin!' Said the Ticktockman," and "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream."

He won Hugo Awards, Nebula Awards, Edgar Awards and many others for his work, although he dismissed the idea of awards in a 2013 column for Variety.

"I do not merely hate all awards shows, I wish to see them beheaded, stakes driven through their black and corrupted widdle hearts, and to see the decapitated remains buried at a crossroads come midnight," Ellison wrote.

He also wrote the Star Trek episode "City on the Edge of Forever," which was rewritten by Star Trek staffers who sought to remove an anti-war message.

Decades later in 2009 he sued CBS Paramount Television seeking revenue from merchandising and other sources from the episode and reached a settlement six months later.

In 1980, Ellison won $337,000 from ABC and Paramount Studios for copyright infringement on his short story "Brillo" and later reached a settlement in a suit against James Cameron, claiming The Terminator drew from two episodes of The Outer Limits he wrote.


Aquaria takes the crown on 'RuPaul's Drag Race'
On the Season 10 finale of RuPaul's Drag Race Aquaria was crowned America's Next Drag Superstar, beating out the top four contestants Kameron Michaels, Eureka O'Hara and Asia O'Hara for the grand prize.

Aquaria, drag daughter of Season 4 winner Sharon Needles, is a New York City queen and social media sensation, known for her sense of style and makeup. Aquaria won three challenges this season including the fan favorite Snatch Game with her characterization of Melania Trump.

Aquaria lip synced alongside competitors Kameron Michaels and Eureka O'Hara to "Bang Bang" by Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj and incorporated sparklers and confetti poppers into her winning performance. In the previous battles, Asia O'Hara attempted to use live butterflies in her lip sync against Kameron to Janet Jackson's "Nasty," and was asked to "Sashay Away." Aquaria and Eureka faced off to "If" by Janet Jackson and Ru decided both could advance to the final round.

The Season 10 queens had to vote for each other for Miss Congeniality after fan voting was tainted by bots. Valentina, Miss Congeniality from Season 9, announced via video from the Werk the World tour that Monet X Change had won Miss Congeniality for Season 10. RuPaul asked Monet if she had anything to say and the self described "sponge queen" said, "Soak it up, bitches!"

The night was filled with emotion as RuPaul commemorated a decade of Drag Race and the acclaim the show has received, including two Emmy Awards, in the years since it began. The cast of Season 1 opened the show and there were throwbacks to past seasons throughout the night.


LOOSE LIPS:
"As I've gotten older, I've redefined to myself what being masculine is and, to me, being masculine is owning yourself as a man. Maybe I'm not typically masculine, but I feel like a strong-ass man when I go out there and compete."

"We're thrilled to share that @Showtime has announced details on a brand-new television series based on the Halo universe, in partnership with @amblin!" the cable network tweeted Thursday.

"Showtime brings its powerful legacy of experience in building stories for premium cable and together with Amblin Television and legendary storyteller Steven Spielberg, have been gracious partners in helping put together the right creative team to bring Halo to television. We are thrilled to have experienced showrunner Kyle Killen and blockbuster director Rupert Wyatt on board, both of whom bring their own flavor of vision, intelligence, and voice to Halo. We couldn't have asked for a stronger or more passionate team to collaborate with," Kiki Wolfkill -- speaking on behalf of the videogame producer 343 Industries -- said in a statement.

She added: "As we think about what it means to bring videogame franchises to movie or TV -- the biggest challenge can often be finding the right balance between moments fans have already experienced and moments that have yet to be experienced through a different medium, perspective, or creative lens. We are excited to navigate these creative waters to bring you something that is both respectful of what you already know and love, but also new and surprising and enthralling."

No casting for the live-action, future-set project has been announced yet. Season 1 will consist of 10, hourlong episodes, TVGuide.com reported.
