Since the sudden death of actor Paul Walker back in November, fans of the Fast & Furious franchise wondered how the films would continue on without one of its main stars. But fear not, the Fast & Furious producers released a statement via Facebook revealing that Walker’s brothers Caleb and Cody will help complete some of his action scenes. They stated:
“We have resumed shooting and now welcome Paul’s brothers, Caleb and Cody, into our ‘Fast’ family.”
Fast 7 hits theaters April 10, 2015.
Another production set to resume is the cultural phenomenon Soul Train. According to The Hollywood Reporter, producer Matthew Weaver has acquired theatrical rights to the variety show launched by Don Cornelius in 1970. Weaver announced:
“Don Cornelius created a television show that became a cornerstone in American culture and I am excited and honored to be bringing it to the stage. We are putting together a top-notch team of artists to ensure Soul Train is the hippest trip on Broadway.”
No word yet on the cast or the musical’s debut date, but stay tuned.
Today is the day X-Men fans have been waiting for. The final film of the franchise, X-Men: Days Of Future Past, will hit theaters next month, but the highly anticipated trailer dropped today. The Bryan Singer-directed film stars both the classic cast, such as Patrick Stewart as Professor Charles Xavier and Ian McKellen as Magneto, with their younger counterparts from the prequel X-Men: First Class. The film is set to hit theaters May 23.
She’s back! Lindsay Lohan made her return to television this week, appearing in an episode of the CBS hit show 2 Broke Girls. Lohan, who now stars in her own reality show on the OWN Network, played a character named Claire alongside the show’s stars Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs. According to Dennings, Lohan was nothing but sweet on set:
“Lindsay was prepared, sweet to everyone, and professional. It’s not nice to spread lies.”
