'John Wick' director Chad Stahelski thinks more 'Matrix' actors could join the franchise.
The filmmaker is currently working on plans for the fourth film in the series with leading man Keanu Reeves already joined by former cast mates Laurence Fishburne and Bowery King, with the potential for more reunions in the future.
Stahelski told ComicBookMovie: "You know, Keanu and I talk a lot about where we want to go. We didn't finish John Wick 3' and have this great big plan of how to go into 'Chapter 4'.
"It's something we're constantly thinking about and we try not to force things. I certainly don't want to include a cast member to try to get somebody in as a gag and work a story around that.
"If we create these great characters and you know, in my head, it makes sense to put [Carrie-Anne Moss] in there or Hugo Weaving or any of our 'Matrix' compadres, and it works and if they're interested, that's always a plus because they're friends and I think they're all excellent performers. So it's yet-to-be-seen."
Whether more 'Matrix' alumni will be cast remains to be seen, but fans can still look forward to the upcoming fourth instalment of the blockbuster sci-fi saga.
The franchise's co-creator, Lana Wachowski - who created the universe with her sister Lilly Wachowski - is set to write, direct and produce the film, with Reeves and Moss set to reprise their respective roles as Neo and Trinity.
The Matrix Trilogy kicked off in 1999, with two sequels, 'The Matrix Reloaded' and 'The Matrix Revolutions', both out in 2003.
It's not currently known if Laurence Fishburne will be back as Morpheus, although it has been suggested that they may audition for an actor to play a younger version of the Captain of the Nebuchadnezzar.
Todd Phillips was "basically begging" Joaquin Phoenix to star in 'Joker'.
The blockbuster director has admitted it was a challenge to convince the 44-year-old actor to take on the role of the iconic Batman villain in the upcoming movie.
Speaking during a Q&A at Toronto Film Festival, he said: "I was going to his house, basically begging him to do the movie.
"I go, 'So I keep coming up here every day. At some point you, you gotta say are you in or out.'
"And he said, 'That's not how you do it'... I always say he never really signed onto the movie. One day he just showed up at a wardrobe fitting."
Meanwhile, the filmmaker recently revealed he was drawn to the DC project because he didn't feel like the Clown Prince of Crime's origin had really been touched on before in any form.
He explained: "I love the complexity of Joker and felt his origin would be worth exploring on film, since nobody's done that and even in the canon he has no formalized beginning.
"So, [co-writer] Scott Silver and I wrote a version of a complex and complicated character, and how he might evolve ... and then devolve.
"That is what interested me - not a Joker story, but the story of becoming Joker."
And Phillips has ruled out a movie starring Phoenix's Joker opposite Robert Pattinson, who is set to star in 'The Batman' as the Caped Crusader himself.
Asked if he sees the two characters coming together in their current iterations, he insisted: "No, definitely not. Oddly, in the states, comic books are our Shakespeare it seems, and you can do many many versions of 'Hamlet'.
"There will be many more jokers, I'm sure, in the future."
Barron Hilton is to become a father for the first time.
The hotel heir and his wife Tessa will welcome their first child into the world next spring and a representative for the couple revealed the tot was conceived in St. Barts, the same place where they first met and where they tied the knot in June 2018.
The representative added to People magazine: "The couple are radiating with joy."
And 29-year-old Barron claimed he and Tessa "owe everything" to the Caribbean island.
He wrote on Instagram: "WE'RE HAVING A BABY!!!! Not only did we meet on St. Barth's, but we had our wedding there just last year and about a month ago we found out that's where we conceived our first child! We owe everything to that beautiful island. We love you (sic)"
Tessa admitted starting a family with her husband is an "absolute dream".
She wrote on her own Instagram account: "We're having a baby!!!!!!!!!!!!! This feels like an absolute dream! I cannot even begin to express how much love and adoration I have for this man. And to think that we are now creating a beautiful little miracle between the two of us simply blows my mind. We already have so much love for you baby and we cannot wait to welcome you in our arms with hugs, kisses and smiles. This is the most precious gift of all. Our whole world is glowing! (sic)"
Barron's famous sister, Paris Hilton, was among the first to publicly congratulate the couple.
She wrote: "So excited to be an aunt again! [heart eye emoji] So happy for you both!!! [heart eye emojis] (sic)"
And his other sister, Nicky Hilton Rothschild - who has children Lily, three, and Theodora, 20 months, with husband James Rothschild - simply commented with a string of heart emojis.
Jennifer Aniston and her famous friends have a "goddess circle" ritual.
The former 'Friends' star jetted six of her female friends - including actress Courteney Cox and Jimmy Kimmel's wife Molly McNearney - out to Mexico for a weekend getaway for her 50th birthday earlier this year, and although their trip didn't go to plan after their private jet was forced to make an emergency landing, Jennifer says they still managed to gather around to take part in their "goddess circle" ritual.
In an interview with the New York Times, Jennifer revealed she and her closest friends have been doing their ritual for over three decades, and said they often gather together to do it during other's major life events, which have included both of Jennifer's weddings to former husbands Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux.
The publication reports Jennifer and her pals had also formed their circle when anyone in the group had a child, and most recently gathered when the 'Just Go With It' star and ex-husband Justin had to put down their dog Dolly.
According to the New York Times, the "goddess circle" ritual - which they took part in on Jennifer's 50th birthday to celebrate how far they've come, and to toast the star's next chapter - involves sitting cross-legged on cushions, and passing around a beechwood talking stick decorated with feathers and charms.
Meanwhile, Jennifer recently said she and her pals "got pretty hammered" when they feared their plane was going to crash, after losing a wheel during take off.
The group boarded a new plane the next day, much to the shock of a number of people they knew.
She said: "Everyone was like, 'How could you get on another plane?' I was like, 'Listen, we all had to fly around for six hours dumping fuel, we all got pretty hammered 'cause who knew what the end of this was gonna be. Let's go out with some tequila.' "
Jesy Nelson is "already" making people think twice about online bullying.
The Little Mix singer has opened up about hear heartbreaking experiences with vile trolls in new documentary 'Odd One Out', and now beauty queen Domenique Fragale - who also appears in the film sharing her own story - has praised the impact it's had.
She told the Daily Star newspaper: "It seems the documentary has really made people realise that while they may have joked about her in the past, seeing somebody's reactions in real life make you aware that she's a real person.
"Already, it has made people realise they really should think before they start sending nasty messages, and that words can have an effect on people - even if you think that it is just a joke."
The 25-year-old deputy Miss England hopes the documentary - which airs on BBC One at 9pm tomorrow (12.09.19) and will be available on BBC Three on iPlayer from 10am - can create "a more open dialogue".
She said: "A more open dialogue is one of the achievements we are hoping for.
"Because Jesy is so down to earth and relatable, I think the documentary really will affect a lot of people in a great way."
The 'Black Magic' hitmaker recently revealed how cruel comments from online bullies left her feeling suicidal and starving herself, and she felt pressure to represent and defend every woman while preaching about confidence.
She admitted: "I felt I had to be this person who was like ... 'I don't care what people are saying about me, I'm this strong woman.' That was the role I had to take on in the group, when really I was an absolute mess."
Kevin Hart will need "round-the-clock" medical support when he is released from hospital on Wednesday (11.09.19).
The 40-year-old actor was admitted to hospital earlier this month after he was involved in a car accident which left him with three fractures in his spine, and after undergoing surgery, he is set to be released from hospital this week.
Kevin is believed to be leaving hospital on Wednesday (11.09.19), and according to The Blast, he will have a back brace fitted for support, and will need "round-the-clock" medical support as he continues to recover at home.
The 'Night School' star is said to already be walking again thanks to his successful surgery, and so won't require a wheelchair to aid his mobility.
It has also been reported that Kevin will need to return to the hospital as an out patient three times a week to make sure he is recovering properly, and it is thought it will be at least four months before the star is able to take on any new work.
Recently, Kevin's close pal Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson said the actor was a "lucky man" following his accident, as his injuries could have been "a lot worse".
He said: "Everything is good, I spoke with Kevin, I actually refer to him as my son. I connected with him today.
"And you know what? These things happen in life and thankfully he was strapped in nicely to his car seat.
"I love the guy, he's one of my best friends. And honestly, I mean, thank God, it could've been a lot worse. So, he's a lucky man, and he knows it too. I wish him the best and a speedy recovery and I'm gonna see him soon."
The 'Get Hard' actor had the injuries to his spine repaired recently, which involved fusing the fractures, two of which are in the thoracic section of the spine and the other in the lumbar.
Thankfully, the procedure was a success and he is expected to make a full recovery as such fractures can often lead to difficulties walking or even partial paralysis of the limbs.
Renee Zellweger's prosthetic nose broke off and oozed a "milk-like" substance during her 'Judy' kissing scene.
The 'Bridget Jones's Diary' star has revealed the "horror" of when she was rehearsing locking lips with Finn Wittrock - who plays Judy Garland's (Renee) fifth and final husband, Mickey Deans, in the biographical film - and how parts of the prop ended up on his face.
She told 'Entertainment Tonight': "Yeah. I had no idea!
"I did not know until this kissing scene and I look at him with horror and I realise, 'Am I more upset that I got that on his face - and we haven't cut so I can't be touching his face in a way to try and get it of - or that it's attached to my head and there's so much more where that came from?'
"The glue and the thing and the chemicals or something, I don't know, and some of it would just sneak out the crevice [on the side].
On how she prepared herself for portraying the late Hollywood icon, Renee said: "I just surrounded myself with all this fun material that I love.
"I love [Garland]. I love her performances. I love her on a talk show. I love what she wore.
"I love the sound of her voice. I mean, all of it.
"I just fooled myself to death and was super greedy all the time. That's it."
'Judy' is set in 1968, during a time when the 'Wizard of Oz' actress headed to London in an effort to revive her career.
The movie sees the star perform sold-out shows at the Talk of the Town nightclub, and follows her as she reminisces with friends and fans and begins a whirlwind romance with musician Mickey, who she married three months before her death.
Judy passed away at the age of 47 in 1969 due to an accidental overdose, and the film also touches on her struggles with drug and alcohol issues.
The movie is based on the musical drama 'End of the Rainbow' by Peter Quilter, which was adapted into a script written by 'The Crown' scribe Tom Edge.
'Judy' will be released in the US on September 27.
The 42-year-old actor has joined the likes of Mark Wahlberg, Dylan O'Brien, and Sophie Cookson in the upcoming action-thriller flick, which is being directed by Antoine Fuqua for Paramount.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project is set to start filming in London later this month, and has secured Lorenzo di Bonaventura as a producer, with Mark Vahradian as well as Bellevue Productions' John Zaozirny.
'Infinite' uses a script written by Ian Shorr and John Lee Hancock, and is an adaptation of the 2009 novel 'The Reincarnationist Papers' by D. Eric Maikranz, which centres on a group of near-immortal men and women who are reincarnated over the centuries and are known as "the Infinite".
To defeat an evil mastermind, the group must rely on a man who suffers from schizophrenia and who will have to learn that all his vivid dreams are actually memories from past lives in order to defeat the villain.
Wahlberg will play the man with schizophrenia, while Ejiofor has been cast as a member of the Infinite who has found a way to stop the reincarnation process and plans to use it on his own kind.
As of the time of writing, it is not known which characters O'Brien and Cookson will play, though they could take on other members of the Infinite.
For Ejiofor, the role comes as he recently wrapped filming on 'The Old Guard', which also centres around a theme of immortality.
The movie is based on a five-issue comic book series of the same name about immortal warriors, and will also star Charlize Theron, KiKi Layne, Marwan Kenzari, Harry Melling, and Veronica Ngo.
Green Day, Fall Out Boy and Weezer's 'Hella Mega Tour' was inspired by the 'Monsters of Rock Tour'.
The three major rock groups are heading out on a mammoth jaunt in 2020, which includes a stop at the London Stadium on June 26, and Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has revealed he wanted to pay homage to the annual festival tour, which was an offshoot of the legendary heavy metal extravaganza Monsters of Rock, which took place at Donington Park in the East Midlands in England - now home to Download Festival - in the 80s and 90s.
Speaking to Zane Lowe on Apple Music's Beats 1 radio, Billie said: "It's kind of a Green Day idea.
"And we talked about how we weren't really wanting to do stadiums and do something that was like throwback to 'Monsters of Rock Tour'.
There was, of course, Fall Out Boy and Weezer and now we're stoked."
Fall Out Boy's bassist, Pete Wentz added: "To me, I remember, in the 90s, there was this one summer, and Guns and Roses, Metallica went on the stadium tour and my parents didn't let me go to it.
"And I feel trapped in that forever and we wanted to ... You know what I mean? But you want to recreate that memory.
"Hopefully if somebody who gets to go to the tour, I think this tour represents counter-programming, I think that the world is moving in one direction in an obvious way, or whatever.
"I think that this tour represents counter programming to that and it's awesome to take part in that and be a small part of it."
The tour will follow a new album from Green Day, which they have unveiled as 'Father Of All...' , and will likely drop in February.
The record sleeve features a "rainbow, bright" unicorn and is "only 26 minutes long".
The 'American Idiot' hitmaker teased: "Well, we recorded an album and it's called 'Father of All ...' its song title is also that.
"It's got a unicorn on the cover. It's rainbow, bright. "It's got a horn and it's got funny eyes.
"Yeah, we made a new record and we're really excited, it's only 26 minutes long, so it's the shortest record we've made, I think since Dookie or Insomniac."
The LP will document and "reflect" the "crazy times we live in" with Donald Trump in charge of The White House, but Billie says whilst there is "a lot of depression" running through the songs, it's done with a "sense of humour".
On what fans can expect from their follow-up to 2016's 'Radio Revolution', he added: "There's a lot of depression, but with a sense of humour.
"But also just kind of the way the world works right now where everything is, I think it's just, we live in just the time of complete and total chaos - or else we've always been, but now it's turned up to Trump. "So it's just trying to reflect what's going on.
"And it's not really writing like political songs, but just writing stuff that, just the s*** that you see every day. ['American Idiot' was the] good old days.
"Remember when we just had two wars going on? It's like, 'Yeah.' Anyways, yeah, we live definitely in the craziest of times right now."
Tickets for the 'Hella Mega Tour' go on sale on September 20 at Ticketmaster.com
The 24-year-old singer is currently working on the follow-up to her self-titled debut record, which was released in 2017, and has said she wants her new material to get people on their feet and have them "dance through the whole record".
She said: "I feel like you could dance through the whole record. There's lots of nostalgic elements to it. There's a sample in there from the 1930s. It's just a party."
The 'New Rules' hitmaker is moving on from the sound of her first album, and says the new music is a change of musical direction.
She added: "It would probably be risky if I wasn't risky with the next record. I don't think it would be as fun if I tried to recreate the first record. As an artist, you constantly want to grow and change your perspective and try something new."
Dua already knows "exactly" what kind of record she wants to make for her second studio venture, and whilst she won't spill too many details about the album's content, she says she's recorded "50 or 60" songs.
The 'New Love' singer said: "Before I started, I knew my album title. I knew exactly what I was going to be making. There are some songs that are happy, some about heartbreak, some about dealing with your life in public."
And the singer believes her new record will show a more confident side to her songwriting, as she's no longer nervous about speaking her mind and putting forward her own ideas.
Speaking to The Face magazine, she said: "[For my first album] I was surrounded by people that had done this longer than me - I always felt like I wasn't good enough. I'd go into the studio, the producer would already have a beat or a track or something we could write to, because I was still in the process of really finding my sound. I would say [ideas], and when we didn't end up using those, I would kind of go back into my shell. It wasn't until I did 'Hotter than Hell' and 'Last Dance' that I started figuring it out, and things started sounding a bit more cohesive. Now I'm not scared. As a writer, sometimes you've got to be OK with saying some s**t, you know? There's no wrong answer. Something could be amazing, it could sound ridiculous, it could really work."
Wendy Williams plans to re-marry following her split from Kevin Hunter.
The 55-year-old talk show host called time on her relationship with Kevin - with whom she has 19-year-old son Kevin Jr. - earlier this year after 12 years of marriage following allegations he had a baby with another woman, and has now said she won't stay single for long, as she intends to get married again.
Speaking to Dr. Mehmet Oz on his talk show on Wednesday (11.09.19) - a clip of which was obtained by Page Six - Wendy said: "I say this all the time ... I'm a wife. I'm not a girlfriend and I will get married again. There will be a prenuptial agreement, and by the way, Mehmet, we will not be living in the same house."
Wendy insisted her next marriage will be "under new circumstances", as she wants to keep living separately from her future spouse, whom she says must have "a full career and his own money".
She added: "Marriage under new circumstance, that's it. That freedom of turning that key, or electing like, 'All right. Let's stay at your place tonight. Let's stay at my place tonight ... But ... you buy the third place. How about that?' I need a man with a full career and his own money and his own situation. I don't want anything from you, except your love and respect. And don't ask anything of me."
Meanwhile, the 'Wendy Williams Show' host recently said she was seeing "many men" in the wake of her divorce.
She said: "I see many men. The youngest would be, like, 48. The oldest would be 65."
And the star previously admitted it was fathering a child with another woman that was the last straw for her in her split from Kevin.
She said: "Infidelity is one thing, a full baby is a whole other topic. It's now time for me to move on with my life ... I'm not changing Pampers, I want to be pampered! If we don't laugh, then we'll cry. So, I've learned how to, from my mother, how to make lemons into lemonade. What am I supposed to do? Stay in the house and cry all day?"
