Pierce Brosnan To Act As Dr. Fate In ‘Black Adam’ Movie Alongside The Rock

Pierce Brosnan has been penned to star alongside Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in the “Black Adam” movie.

The 67-year-old actor, who is best known for starring as James Bond in four films from 1995 to 2002, has been picked alongside Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in the eagerly-awaited DC movie.

Dr. Fate happens to be the son of an archeologist and one of DC’s oldest characters, while Dwayne plays the lead role in the upcoming movie, which has actually been in the works for years.

The movie will also feature stars like Aldis Hodge, who is playing Hawkman, Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher, and Quintessa Swindell as Cyclone.

The shooting of the movie will start in April, although DC has so far remained tight-lipped about plot and character details.

The wrestler-turned-actor said on Instagram: “We are approximately three weeks away from shooting ‘Black Adam’ and I can’t believe we are at the finish line with this thing. And what a journey it has been. Actually I can believe it considering how hard we’ve worked over the years.”

The movie is to be directed by Jaume Collet-Serra, who previously directed Dwayne in the Disney movie “Jungle Cruise”.

Dwayne, 48, first signed on to play Black Adam in 2014, following the release of ‘Man of Steel’, and amid plans to create a DC Extended Universe of films.

The shoot was actually supposed to begin last year but was delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Hollywood star also shared a page from the script via Instagram, giving his social media followers an insight into the upcoming movie.

He said: “I’ve memorised this, and I’ve known these words for years and years and years and years and years now but it gives you guys an example of who Black Adam is, and who Black Adam is to the world of the DC universe, but also I think who Black Adam is to the world of superhero universes.”

Bobby Brown’s Son, Bobby Brown Jr, Died Of Overdose Drugs

Bobby Brown Jr., who is the son of legendary American singer, Bobby Brown, has been confirmed to have died of an overdose of drugs.

According to a coroner’s report, the 28-year-old died of an overdose of alcohol, cocaine and the powerful opioid fentanyl.

He died at his Los Angeles home on November 18, 2020, after being found to be unresponsive in his bedroom by his girlfriend, Anna Reed.

According to BBC, Anna called the paramedics, who declared him dead, with no foul play suspected.

The autopsy report released on Monday referred to his death as an accident, as the musician had a history of drug and alcohol usage.

A source told the police that the night before his death, he had consumed tequila and cocaine, and “snorted” the painkiller Percocet.

The family stated that Bobby Brown Jr. was experiencing flu-like symptoms at the time but had not tested positive for Covid-19.

Bobby Brown Jr. was one of the two children from Bobby Brown’s 11-year relationship with Kim Ward, which ended in 1991.

He died eight years after his stepmother, Whitney Houston, accidentally drowned in a bath, and five years after his 22-year-old half-sister, Bobbi Kristina, died in similar circumstances.

Last November, Bobby Brown said: “His son’s death had devastated my family, and there were no words to explain the pain.”

Bobby Brown Jr.’s brother, Landon, paid tribute by sharing a black-and-white photo of his late sibling on Instagram, alongside the caption: “I love you forever King.”

The musician’s girlfriend, Anna Reed, tweeted: “The heavens gained an angel but I lost my soulmate.”

Thomas Middleditch Of Silicon Valley Has Been Accused Of Sexual Misconduct

Thomas Middleditch of Silicon Valley has been accused of sexual misconduct during events that allegedly took place way back in 2019.

The scene of the events was the now closed Hollywood club, Cloak & Dagger.

Ten women are accusing the club’s founders, Adam Bravin and Michael Patterson, of not addressing the allegations, which Thomas was named among the men.

One of the employees of the club, Hannah Harding, came out and explained: “On the night of October 22, 2019, Thomas made lewd sexual overtures toward her and her girlfriend.

She turned him down, but he kept pursuing her, groping her in front of her friends and several employees, including the club’s operations manager, Kate Morgan.”

She told Bravin and Patterson, but they allegedly dismissed her.

Hannah further provided Instagram messages she was sent to her by Middleditch, which allegedly read: “Hannah I had no idea my actions were that weird for you … I know you probably want to just put me on blast as a monster … I don’t expect you to want to be my friend or anything … I am so ashamed I made you uncomfortable.”

Hannah added there was a second incident with Middleditch at the club, and instead of the owners believing the stories, they called them to ask questions and seemed to take side with him.

Hannah said: “Adam called me ‘to make sure and get a second opinion on him’ because they didn’t trust my story in the first place. They cared more about famous people at their club than women’s safety.”

Middleditch, who recently filed for divorce from his wife, has stated that he had an “untraditional” marriage with his wife.

Amitabh Bachchan Honoured By FIAF With 2021 Award

India: Movie Megastar, Amitabh Bachchan, has been conferred with the 2021 FIAF Award by The International Federation of Film Archives (FIAF), the organisation of film archives and museums from across the world, at a virtual ceremony held on March 19.

The 78-year-old superstar posted a picture of him on Instagram after he received the accolade, and wrote: “I am deeply honoured to have been conferred with the 2021 FIAF Award.

“Thank you to FIAF and to Martin Scorsese and Christopher Nolan for bestowing the award on me in the ceremony today.”

“Our commitment to the cause of saving India’s film heritage is unshakeable and Film Heritage Foundation will continue its efforts to build a nationwide movement to save our films,” he concluded.

Iconic filmmakers Martin Scorsese and Christopher Nolan, who were previous recipients of the award, gave the award to Bachchan for his contribution to the preservation of and access to the world’s film heritage for the benefit of present and future generations

In 2018, at the opening ceremony of the Kolkata Film Festival, Bachchan had delivered an impassioned speech on film preservation, saying that most films of Indian filmmaking legends have “gone up in flames or have been discarded on the scrap heap.”

Very little of this great film heritage survives, and if we do not take urgent steps to save what remains, in another hundred years there will be no memory of these films and nothing left to celebrate,” the actor said at the time.

Bachchan was nominated by the FIAF-affiliate Film Heritage Foundation, an Indian film archival organisation founded by filmmaker and archivist, Shivendra Singh Dungarpur.

Dungarpur noted that India’s track record in film preservation is dismal.

By 1950, India had lost almost 70 per cent of its films, and of the 1,338 silent films made in India, some 29 survive, many only in fragments.

He expressed that Bachchan “constructively wielded his influence to amplify the cause on a war footing,” in South Asia and that he was the unanimous choice of the 172 FIAF-affiliated archives for the award.

Scorsese also commented on Bachchan and said: “Amitabh Bachchan’s advocacy for preserving India’s film legacy has been exceptional.”

Nolan, who is a staunch supporter of celluloid over digital, said: “As a past recipient of the FIAF Award, I know how imperative it is that representatives of the film industry around the world come together to ensure that we preserve our film heritage.”

On congratulating Bachchan for the award, Nolan said: “He has played an essential role in putting the cause of film preservation on the map in India and the subcontinent.”

The FIAF Award was introduced in 2001 when it was first presented to Scorsese for his film archival efforts.

It has since recognised personalities from outside the archival scene who have worked to advocate the cause of film preservation.

Other past recipients of the award are Ingmar Bergman (2003), Mike Leigh (2005), Hou Hsiao-hsien (2006), Peter Bogdanovich (2007), Rithy Panh (2009), Agnes Varda (2013), Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (2016), Christopher Nolan (2017), Apichatpong Weerasethakul (2018), Jean-Luc Godard (2019), and Walter Salles (2020).

Nicki Minaj Father’s Death: Mother Files $150M Lawsuit Against The Driver Charged In The Father’s Hit-and-Run Death

On 12th February, 2021, Robert Maraj, Nicki Minaj’s father, was struck by a car in Mineola, New York, and died thereafter after being rushed to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Nicki Minaj’s mother, Carol Maraj, had filed a $150 million lawsuit in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, against the man charged for his involvement in the hit-and-run.

In as statement released on Friday by Ben Crump Law via his Twitter handle, he stated: “He was fatally injured in a hit-and-run accident on February 12, 2021, when he was struck by a car being driven by Charles Polevich as Mr. Maraj walked along a Long Island road.

“After striking Maraj, Polevich left the accident scene and did not call for emergency services or render aid to Maraj.”

He added: “He was not only irresponsible and negligent, but more concerned about running away and hiding than seeking help,” Crump’s post continued. “Polevich’s behavior was criminal, cowardly, and immoral. We will hold him responsible for his reckless actions that led to Robert Maraj’s death!”

Meanwhile, Polevich’s attorney, Marc C. Gann, has made his statement on the case and he said: “Mr. Polevich has expressed empathy and condolences to the Maraj family. While the civil suit is not unexpected, the criminal charges pending against Mr. Polevich have no bearing on the civil case.

“It has yet to be determined whether there was any negligence involved in the accident or the degrees of any negligence. I will add that the amount demanded is shocking to say the least and I don’t believe is in any way reasonable.”

Polevich, who had been arrested by the police, will be facing charges of leaving the scene of an incident and tampering with physical evidence in connection with the death of Maraj.

“He was absolutely aware of what happened,” Nassau County Police Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick said at a news conference last month.

According to the officer: “He got out of the car and he looked at the deceased, got into his car, and made the conscious decision to leave instead of dialing 911, instead of calling an ambulance for the man. He went home and secluded the vehicle. He’s well aware of what he did.”

Michael Jackson’s, Prince Jackson, Reveals His Dad  Best Advice

Michael Jackson’s son, Prince Jackson, has opened up on the life lessons he learned from his legendary father.

In an interview with FOX Soul’s “The Mix,” Prince stated: “There’s so many nuggets there that are just so close to my heart that I feel like they’re applicable at all times, but the one that is my guiding principle is that you never stop learning.”

Prince, despite graduating from college nearly two years ago, explained that it does not mean that he has stopped learning.

He added: “And my father also would say something along the lines of, ‘The minute that you stop learning is the minute that you are going to start dying. You’re gonna make mistakes, but you’re gonna have to dust yourself off and come back.’”

Prince has been busy with philanthropic jobs with his foundation ‘Heal Los Angeles’ since graduation from the college.

When asked why he’s not stepped into his father’s shoes and follow his musical footsteps, Prince explained that he does not possess the talent for music.

He said: “If I did [think of becoming an artist], my family would be very honest and tell me that it’s not for you. I don’t have the voice for singing and it took me a while to learn what a beat was, but I got that down at least. I just can’t dance.”

Prince also recalled his childhood, which he said was filled with music.

He said: “There really wasn’t a genre that we didn’t listen to. He was an artist and he had an appreciation for his craft.”

My sister, Paris Jackson, and I, were worked up about saving the animals, and we did a protest in our bedroom listening to ‘They Don’t Care About Us,’” he added pointing out about Michael’s 1996 hit.

Talking about when he realized that his father was a famous star, he said that he was very young and that he could see that people were yearning to touch his father.

Prince said: “As I was growing up and getting older, I saw that people would follow us around, people would just want to reach out and touch my dad.”

He elaborated: “It was really when I was maybe around 10 or 11 in the Middle East when I was watching a video of my father performing. I don’t remember the name of the tour, I believe it may have been the History tour, but he was performing outside and you see this sea of people and there [were] people fainting in the audience. And I asked my dad, ‘Why are they fainting? I see you every day and I don’t faint.'”

Maddox Jolie-Pitt Has Reportedly Testified Against His Father, Brad Pitt, In The Custody Case With His Mother, Angelina Jolie

One of the children of Angelina Joile and Brad Pitt, Maddox Jolie-Pitt, has reportedly testified against Brad Pitt in Custody Case with Angelina Jolie instituted.

According to a new report, Maddox has provided testimony against his father, Brad Pitt, in the ongoing custody battle with his mother, Angelina Jolie.

Just one day after another report said that the kids might testify, details of Maddox‘s testimony have been revealed.

According to Us Weekly report of Thursday 18th March, Maddox has already given testimony as[an] adult in the ongoing custody dispute and it wasn’t very flattering toward Brad.

He doesn’t use Pitt as his last name on documents that aren’t legal and instead uses Jolie.

Maddox wants to legally change his last name to Jolie, which Angelina has said she doesn’t support.

Angelina and Brad filed for divorce back in September of 2016, and have been in a five-year-plus long battle over the custody of their children and the division of their estate. They have yet to agree to a formal custody agreement and final judgement.

After Angelina filed for divorce, it was reported that Brad was under investigation for alleged child abuse regarding an incident involving Brad and their son, Maddox, while on a private jet. A formal investigation was launched, ending with Brad being cleared of any criminal wrongdoing.

Angelina is now allegedly prepared to provide proof of domestic violence.

A source close to Brad believes that Angelina is attempting to get back at him with this latest filing.

The source revealed: “Over the past four-and-a-half years, there have been a number of claims made by Angelina that have been reviewed and not substantiated.”

“The children have been used by Angelina to hurt Brad before and this is more of that behavior. This leaking of documents by her fourth or fifth set of lawyers has been done to hurt Brad.” the sources added.

Brad is fighting for split custody, while Angelina is fighting for physical custody.

In an interview, Kris said: “I think it’s always going to be hard anytime…you know, there’s a lot of kids.

On whether the divorce will be featured on the final season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Kris stated that it’s Kim that will decide on that as Kim wants to deal with the divorce in her own time.

She said: “I don’t know what they have decided on in the finale, we haven’t even seen the first show yet. I’m sure they’re putting some final touches. But I think it’s just a private time for them. Kim wanted to deal with this with her own family in her own time…When she feels like it, I’m sure she’ll say what she needs to say.”

Angelina Jolie has claimed to have proof of alleged domestic violence against Brad Pitt, new court records reveal.

The actress alleged, in new court documents that were filed under seal on March 12, that she’s prepared to offer “proof and authority” in support of alleged domestic violence against Pitt during their upcoming divorce trial.

A source familiar with the case said: “This is just another case of Angelina changing the narrative when it suits her.

“No one else knows what she might say now, but that background is important,” added the source.

Pitt was previously cleared of allegations of child abuse by both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Child and Family Services back in 2016. The DCFS investigation ended on Nov. 9, 2016, while the FBI closed their investigation on Nov. 22, 2016.

Angelina said that she felt she had to take action for the health of the family and she’s relieved that after their 8-week involvement, the DCFS is now satisfied the safeguards are put in place that will allow the children to heal.

She said: “The job of the DCFS is to make sure the children are in a safe and secure situation.”

Pitt also spoke about the investigation, and where his relationship stands with Jolie, in a 2017 interview with GQ Style.

He said: “I was really on my back and chained to a system when Child Services was called.

“And you know, after that, we’ve been able to work together to sort this out. We’re both doing our best. I heard one lawyer say, ‘No one wins in court — it’s just a matter of who gets hurt worse.’ And it seems to be true.”

You spend a year just focused on building a case to prove your point and why you’re right and why they’re wrong, and it’s just an investment in vitriolic hatred,” he added.

He continued: “I just refuse. And fortunately, my partner in this agrees. It’s just very, very jarring for the kids, to suddenly have their family ripped apart.”

Jolie, 45, and Pitt, 57, have been engaged in a hard-fought legal battle over the custody of their children, after the actress filed for divorce from him in September 2016.

In an interview with British Vogue last month, Jolie admitted that the past few years have been pretty hard.

She stated: “I’ve been focusing on healing our family. It’s slowly coming back, like the ice melting and the blood returning to my body.”

Last August, Jolie spoke with ET, and she opened up about how her children have been there for her, and how they’ve been handling the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

You know, I am so lucky,” she said at the time. “We are so used to being tight together for a long time.”

“I’m lucky, and I think when you have that many children, they really take care of each other,” she added.

She explained: “They help me. I’m not alone managing everything. They are an amazing team, so I’m very, very fortunate.”

A source said that Pitt has been respectful of Angelina’s parenting and her love for the children.

While he doesn’t agree with everything, he knows she loves the kids and wants the best for them. He also knows his love and presence are needed,” the source said.

“It’s important to Brad that the kids don’t worry about their parents’ current situation and that they don’t feel stuck in the middle in any way. This is a challenge because of their age, but he’s doing what he can,” the source added.

Recently, another source said that Jolie and Pitt have come a very long way and are both interested in raising their kids.

They’re finally in a place where they both want to work together to raise their kids,” the source said at the time.

“They have no plans to reconcile and any communication between them is regarding their children’s needs and future,” the source added.

Hailey Bieber Sees Future With Her Husband, Justin Bieber

Hailey Bieber, the wife of the famous Canadian music star, Justin Bieber, has opened up about seeing the future with her husband and revealed that they have talked to a therapist together to make their marriage work.

Hailey, who will be on the covers of ELLE April 2021 edition, opened up about her marriage to Justin Bieber and said: “In the beginning of our marriage, I just wanted to hide.”

She continued: “I was like, ‘Can there be no anonymity? Can I have any of it back?’” At one point, about a year ago, the trolling became so acute that she decided to indefinitely turn off public comments on her Instagram.

“I remember someone telling me that [turning off the public comments] really lowers your engagement. And I was like, ‘I could give a fuck about engagement!People are terrorizing me. Engagement, enschagement. I don’t care!”

Hailey said that she had a plan with Justin to be married young, have a family young and build a life.

Hailey said: “We were friends first for a really long time before there was anything romantic. But we always knew that we were aligned on what we wanted in our future. We had talked about wanting to be married young and having a family young and building a life. Even before we knew we wanted to be with each other.”

She stated that it sounded ridiculous to get married at almost 22-year-old.

She said: “I mean, I was married when I was 21, two months before I turned 22, which is insanely young. And sounds almost ridiculous when you say it out loud. Although I do think for somebody like me and somebody like Justin, [it’s different]. We’ve seen a lot for our age. We have both lived enough life to know that’s what we wanted.”

The model star said that she believed that any marriage could fail but her marriage to Justin is destined to be.

She said: “I think any relationship can fail, Hollywood or not. But I think [Justin and I] are grounded by our faith. I’m not saying it’s this easy-peasy thing that doesn’t take work. We talk to a therapist. We do what we have to do.”

“I learn new things about him and about myself and about our relationship all the time. Do we have little fights and stuff that we have to work through sometimes? Yeah, of course, but it really doesn’t ever feel like work, because I love him so much. I see forever with him,” she added.

Hailey hinted that she has just launched Hailey Rhode Bieber’s YouTube Channel, a modest effort to take back control of her own story, and will be covering the topic “close to my heart,” from mental health, marriage, faith, and politics to fashion, skin care, and makeup.

Along the way, she hopes to have some fun, offering fans an intimate look at her personal life, like the recent girls’ night she hosted for her close buddies, the Jenner sisters.

Hailey made mac and cheese; while Kylie Jenner made green bean casserole and fried chicken; and Kendall Jenner made sweet potato soufflé.

“We hang out, we giggle, we talk like any other girlfriends,” she said, “It’s very casual.”

But, as he said, ‘Acting is what I do, it’s only a part of who I am.’ And he was SO much more – a true original, an adventurer, a sailor, swimmer, dancer, actor, author. There is a gaping hole where he once stood on this earth. He was loved by too many to mention and had a great impact on so many lives.”

Simon became an actor after an opportunity meeting at a resort hotel gave him the chance to perform as part of a troupe in various stage productions.

He went on to perform at the Moulin Rouge in 1989, prompting him to write a book about his experience titled Paris Nights: My Year at the Moulin Rouge.

He also did modelling work and later appeared in the South African TV series Egoli – Place of Gold for six years.

The South African actor’s TV credits also included appearances in NCIS, Castle, Days of Our Lives, and 24.

He secured the biggest role of his career after moving to Los Angeles. His portrayal of villain Ba’al on Stargate SG1 was popular with viewers and the character enjoyed a five-year run.

Simon reprised his role for the Stargate: Continuum film, which was released in 2008.

Last year, he presented the Travel Channel series Into The Unknown, which saw him explore the world of the paranormal by hiking and swimming in the wilderness to find answers to myths and legends.
