Chinese Actress Fan Bingbing is Apparently Alive, After Disappearing Three Months Ago

I don't know if you've been following this, but three months ago, Chinese actress FAN BINGBING just VANISHED off the face of the Earth. Now, that's probably not uncommon in China. But even though American audiences only know her as the mutant Blink in "X-Men: Days of Future Past", Fan is HUGE in her own country. So the world noticed. Well, it looks like Fan might be alive after all. She hasn't actually been seen, but she's been heard. Yesterday, Chinese authorities hit Fan with a $130 MILLION penalty for tax evasion. And she issued a statement admitting to it and apologizing. She said, quote, "Today I'm facing enormous fears and worries over the mistakes I have made. I failed my country which nurtured me; I failed the society which trusted me; I failed the fans who loved me. "I offer my sincere apology here once again! I beg for everyone's forgiveness!"

Netflix Will Make New Movies Based on "The Chronicles of Narnia"

Netflix has acquired the rights to the seven "Chronicles of Narnia" books . . . and they're developing new movies and shows based on them. They haven't said exactly what the plan is, other than that there will be, quote, "multiple productions . . . [of] both feature-length and episodic programming." One report says they want to build a "cinematic universe . . . in the vein of 'Star Trek' and Marvel," which seems very ambitious. Disney made three "Chronicles of Narnia" movies over the past 13 years: "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" in 2005, "Prince Caspian" in 2008, and "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader" in 2010. The fourth book "The Silver Chair" was being developed for a movie, but it never got off the ground. The people who were working on it are still in the fold, but it's not clear if the Netflix franchise will have anything to do with the Disney movies. More details HERE

 

A Live Action "Lilo & Stitch" Movie Is in the Works

Disney won't be satisfied until it does a live action / CGI remake of every single one of its animated movies. Next up: "Lilo & Stitch". That's the 2002 movie about the Hawaiian girl who befriends a weird little alien. Disney says the producers behind the live action version of "Aladdin" will handle this one. But there's no cast or timetable yet, so it'll be a while before it's out. The "Aladdin" movie hits theaters next May. More details HERE

 

Damon Wayans Says He's Quitting "Lethal Weapon"

After everything he went through to get CLAYNE CRAWFORD fired, DAMON WAYANS casually announced that he's leaving the "Lethal Weapon" TV show mid-season . . . because he just can't do it anymore. He said, quote, "I'm going to be quitting the show in December after we finish the initial 13 [episodes]. So I really don't know what they're planning, but that's what I'm planning. I'm a 58- year-old diabetic, and I'm working 16-hour days . . . "I'm done. Like Murtaugh said, 'I'm too old for this.'" He also said he's missing too much family time, and he wants to return to the stage and, quote, "try to find my smile again." More details HERE

 

MISCHA BARTON is joining MTV's reboot of "The Hills"

The O.C. star Mischa Barton (Marissa Cooper for three seasons) has joined the cast of "The Hills: New Beginnings," marking her second dabble with reality television since her run on "Dancing With the Stars" in 2016. Why the heck is she joining? I don’t get it it. She has NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS GROUP. The show sounds like crap anyways without Lauren and Kristin. (THE CAST: Heidi  Montag and her husband, Spencer Pratt, Spencer's sister Stephanie Pratt, Brody Jenner (son of Caitlyn Jenner, formerly known as Bruce), Audrina Patridge, Jason Wahler, Frankie Delgado, Justin Brescia (aka Justin Bobby) and Whitney Port).
