Chadwick Boseman to star in Spike Lee's first Netflix movie

Chadwick Boseman will have a starring role in Spike Lee's first Netflix movie.

The Hollywood Reporter confirmed Tuesday the 41-year-old actor will appear in Lee's new film Da 5 Bloods.

Delroy Lindo, who collaborated with Lee on Malcolm X, and French actor Jean Reno will co-star. The film follows a group of Vietnam veterans who return to the jungle to find their lost innocence and repair their broken selves.

Deadline said Lee wrote the script with Kevin Willmott from a screenplay by Danny Bilson and Paul DeMeo and a rewrite by Matthew Billingsley. Lee will produce with Beatriz Levin, Lloyd Levin and Jon Kilik.

Lee's first Netflix series, She's Gotta Have It, premiered on the streaming site in November 2017. The show is based on the director's 1986 film of the same name and stars DeWanda Wise and Anthony Ramos.

Lee's movie BlacKkKlansman is nominated for six awards at the 91st annual Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director. The Oscars ceremony will take place Feb. 24.

Boseman is known for playing T'Challa, aka Black Panther, in the Marvel movie Black Panther. He will reprise the role in Avengers: Endgame and also star in the new film 17 Bridges with Taylor Kitsch and Sienna Miller.



Reports: 'Breaking Bad' movie to debut on Netflix, then AMC

Vince Gilligan's Breaking Bad sequel movie is set to debut on Netflix, then air on AMC.

Deadline reported the planned platform switch and Variety later said it confirmed the decision.

Starring Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Anna Gunn, Dean Norris, Bob Odenkirk, Jonathan Banks, RJ Mitte and Betsy Brandt, the crime drama initially ran for five seasons on AMC, but earned additional popularity when it streamed later on Netflix.

Gilligan wrote and directed the movie, which is expected to follow Paul's character Jesse Pinkman after the events of the 2013 series finale.

No other details are known about the project, including who else might return from the Breaking Bad cast.

A prequel series called Better Call Saul, which follows Odenkirk's crooked lawyer Saul Goodman, has been airing on AMC since 2015. It was renewed last summer for a fifth season.

Since Breaking Bad ended, Paul starred in the recently canceled The Path for three seasons. He will appear in Season 3 of Westworld.

LOOSE LIPS:

"The toughest one for us to follow is no phones at the table. Of course, there are those moments when the kids do something super cute and you just have to record it. But we really try to implement the no-phones rule ... It's a special time."

Rian Johnson denies 'Star Wars' ouster: 'Still working on the trilogy'

NewAllProductsDirector Rian Johnson has denied via Twitter rumors claiming he no longer plans to helm three standalone Star Wars movies.

"No it isn't true, I'm still working on the trilogy. With all due respect to the movie bros, who I'm sure are lovely kind bros with good fraternal intentions," he responded to another Twitter user's question about his Star Wars status.

Lucasfilm announced in November 2017 that it had tapped Johnson to create a new trilogy following the space adventures of characters who do not appear in the nine-movie Skywalker saga.

No casting or release dates have been disclosed yet.

Johnson's credits include Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Looper and Brick.

Phil Lord and Chris Miller famously departed Solo: A Star Wars Story mid-production over creative differences with Lucasfilm in June 2017, leaving filmmaker Ron Howard to finish shooting the movie.

In September 2017, the studio announced Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow had left Star Wars: Episode IX and would be replaced by J.J. Abrams. A difference with Lucasfilm over the direction for the movie was credited for Trevorrow's exit before production began.

'Celebrity Big Brother': Tamar Braxton wins Season 2

The Celebrity Big Brother Season 2 winner is Tamar Braxton.

The 41-year-old singer and television personality won by unanimous vote during Wednesday's episode of the CBS reality competition.

Braxton was up against Kandi Burruss, Dina Lohan, Lolo Jones and Ricky Williams. She pleaded her case to the jury after Burruss, Lohan and Jones were eliminated.

"I'm a huge fan of this show. I played the game to the best of my ability," the star said, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

People said Braxton is the first-ever black housemate to win the grand prize. She also broke the "First to Enter" curse -- a theory that the first person to arrive at the Big Brother house never wins.

Braxton took home $250,000 for winning the competition. Williams, the runner-up, walked away with $50,000.

Braxton celebrated her win in an interview with Entertainment Tonight after the finale.

"It's a blessing on top of a blessing, and it means that my friendships in the house are really real," the singer said. "I'm grateful for that, too."

"There's a couple things going on with Tamar," she said of her future plans. "My hope is to be the Cardi B of TV!"

Braxton and her sisters, Toni Braxton, Trina Braxton, Traci Braxton and Towanda Braxton, star on the WE tv series Braxton Family Values. The show completed a sixth season in October.

Which former co-star says he spoke to Mandy Moore about a 'This is Us' guest spot?

Shane West says he's spoken with Mandy Moore about a possible guest spot on This is Us.

The 40-year-old actor said Wednesday in an interview with Entertainment Tonight that he's interested in reuniting with Moore, his A Walk to Remember co-star, on the popular NBC series.

"I feel like if it was right [I would do it]... it would have to be the right way to do it. I'm 100 percent interested," West said. "We've talked about it, actually, but you'd want it to be something special."

"[I wouldn't do it] just to pop in, but [I want] something that goes somewhere," he added.

West is also friendly with Moore's This is Us co-star Milo Ventimiglia.

"Milo's an old friend of mine. He and I started around the same time," he said. "I'm very happy for him as well. He's a great guy."

West and Moore played Landon and Jamie in A Walk to Remember, a 2002 adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel of the same name. West reflected on the film in an Instagram post in January.

"I'll never forget the wonderful times I had on this production....with some of the most wonderful people. #fbf #tbt @mandymooremm @adamshankman," he captioned a still from the movie.

Moore and Ventimiglia play Rebecca and Jack Pearson on This is Us, which is in its third season on NBC. Moore spoke out in Instagram post Wednesday after saying her ex-husband, Ryan Adams, was emotionally abusive during their relationship.
