Considering Hollywood’s near-total reliance on familiar properties (comic books, TV shows, movies that have already been made twice before coughhulkcough, etc.), it’s kind of shocking that a Keith Moon biopic has yet to be made.
Consider that problem solved. Hollywood Reporter, uh, reports that the film, long in the works, has received funding and is now in development. Not only that, but Moon’s The Who bandmate Roger Daltrey has been collaborating with producers on the project. He says, “The Keith Moon project is one close to my heart so I am excited to reinvigorate it…
So get pumped up on amphetamines and brandy for this one, although it might still never see the light of day and if it does it will likely be pretty bad, but…still?

Yesterday, the surviving members of TLC held a press conference in New York City to announce plans to release new material in conjunction with a new biopic later this year. Music was previewed for the press, but nothing was released to the public (yet). The movie, however, is another story.

The actors cast for CrazySexyCool, including rapper Lil Mama as the fallen Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez, look like the spitting image of the popular trio. Do you agree? Comment below and let us know your thoughts on the new trailer. (more…)
We have been talking about the reign of One Direction a lot in recent weeks, and to be honest it seems there may be no end in sight. Not only are the boys currently working on their third album in two years, but they also have a new 3D film heading to theater that is sure to take fandom to an all new level.
This morning, the gents from One Direction played a Twitter reveal game with fans to have them unlock the title to the group’s upcoming film.
