Katie Holmes, Possibly Taylor Swift Join The Cast Of “The Giver”

Soon, Lois Lowry’s beloved novel The Giver will join the ranks of young adult books that have made it to the big screen. Come on, you know you’ve been waiting for this since you were twelve and checked it out of the school library. It’s one of the classic dystopias for young readers, with its creepy community of too-perfect people who see everything in black and white (literally). Read more at The Mary Sue…

Studio Battles E. L. James And Fans For “Fifty Shades” Rating

Will the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie be Rated R or Rated Pg-13? Yes, the studio has said they want to stay faithful to the books. The director has said the film will contain the essence of the story. But what does an R-rating truly mean to box office returns?

As we’ve seen from films like The Matrix, The Terminator, and even recent comedies, an R-rating is not the kiss of death. BUT – and this is a big but – when the films are based on a romantic, sex-driven narrative that appeals primarily to older women, it might mean differently. Or does it?

“We talked on the phone for that one long time, which was certainly a nice morale thing for me. I’m up there on the station with five guys and to get to talk to somebody who, even instantly on the phone, is so personable, it was like talking to a girlfriend.”

–NASA Astronaut Cady Coleman tells the website collectSPACE that her chat with Sandra Bullock to help her prep for her role in the I-can-barely-watch-the-trailer-without-having-a-panic-attack movie “Gravity” was downright delightful. Coleman and Bullock were actually put in touch through their siblings, who knew each other through the restaurant business (10 points for good old fashioned networking!). Bullock needed advice on how to convincingly play an astronaut, Coleman was in the middle of a 5-month stay on the International Space Station: voila, a friendly actress/astronaut correspondence was born. Coleman doesn’t even mind that the movie explores the worst case scenario of her job, adding, “The fact that it highlights the real people, including women — smart, strong women that go to space and live up there and work up there — the fact that it would bring attention to that, I think is a valuable thing.” I agree. Which is why I’ll be popping a Xanax and forcing myself to go see it. [Jezebel]

Warner Bros. Announces Another Harry Potter Movie (Sort Of)

Thanks to Hollywood’s crippling inability to let any wildly profitable franchise end gracefully (see: “Pirates of the Caribbean 5″), Warner Bros. and J.K. Rowling have teamed up once again for another movie to take place in the Harry Potter universe.

The movie will be based on the Hogwarts textbook “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”, which Rowling published IRL in 2001. The film will follow the exploits of author Newt Scamander; Rowling herself is set to write the screenplay. A Warner Bros. statement announcing the film threatens the film “is planned as the first picture in a new film series.” Read more at Celebuzz…

The “Rollin’ With My Homies” Party House From “Clueless” Is For Sale

Clueless Party House For Sale

Anyone on the real estate market who is looking for a little piece of history needs to get themselves to Los Angeles, where the iconic valley party house from “Clueless” is currently for sale. For the bargain price of $825,000, owning this house would allow you to do any of the following life dream status activities:

  • Making dinner in the kitchen where Tai and Elton sang “Rollin’ With My Homies.”
  • Taking a bath in the bathroom where Murray shaved his head because he’s “keepin’ it real” and Dion called his mom to tell on him.
  • Lounging by the pool where Cher received an angry call from her dad on her brick-sized cellphone.
  • Watching TV in the family room where Travis attempted (and failed) to crowd surf.

I could go on for days. The point is, someone really needs to buy this house and then recreate that gloriously 90s party and invite me. Please. [Daily Mail]
