Ahh, Angela Lansbury, you jinxed it!

But it's probably a good thing you did! This is a classic that was not meant to be remade!

Months after the former Murder, She Wrote star slammed NBC's idea to reboot the show, the big wigs are changing their tune!

Apparently the plug has been pulled and there will be no more remake of Murder, She Wrote with Octavia Spencer, for now at least.

The people over at NBC DID confirm that there won't be a Murder, She Wrote reboot at this moment, but they aren't opposed to visiting that idea again!

Hm, maybe the people over at the peacock network should stop trying to make a Murder, She Wrote reboot happen, because it seems awfully reluctant!

Nooo! This is one injustice even Captain America can't fix!

South Korean director Bong Joon-ho has, by most accounts, put together a marvelous movie about a dystopian future with a FIERCE cast of A-list American actors.

Starring Chris Evans, Jamie Bell, Tilda Swinton, Octavia Spencer, and many others, Snowpiercer was supposed to be a smash hit in theaters!

There's only one problem, Harvey Weinstein won't let anyone watch it! Not anyone on this continent, at least!

Snowpiercer is getting spectacular reviews and Bong Joon-ho keeps sending his film to film festivals in North America, trying to let more people see it, but The Weinstein Company owns the distribution rights over here and is apparently "forbidding" any screenings until

octavia spencer sensa lawsuit weight loss

If a company promised us $700k and didn't pull through, we'd be livid as well!

This is exactly what's happening with Oscar-winning Octavia Spencer right now, who was courted by Sensa, a weight-loss company that helped her lose 20 pounds in 5 months. She was famous, the stuff was working and she was talking about it. What a match made in heaven!

Except, not. She just filed a lawsuit in L.A. Superior Court alleging "breach-of-contract and fraud." They haven't paid a whole lot of the $1.25 million contract she signed with stipulations: no tabloid ads, no "before and after" photos, and wanted transparency by tagging all sponsored tweets with the required #spon hashtag.
