Well, this is certainly interesting.
Dr. Luke has been dropped by Sony, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The producer is also no longer the CEO of Kemosabe Records, which he established with Sony in 2011. Furthermore, Sony has stated that Luke "no longer has authority to act on its behalf."
Even though this might seem like good news for Kesha, we're not sure that it actually nullifies her contract with the producer. It sounds like Dr. Luke is still the only one who can break that contract with her.
Moreover, in her court papers, the Tik Tok singer previously told the judge that Sony and Dr. Luke's relationship was about to come to an end, and that things would be worse for her once she no longer had the music giant behind her to act as a "go-between."
Complicating matters further is the fact that the music producer still has a pending defamation lawsuit against her, and his lawyers are in the process of gathering evidence that proves his career has suffered greatly due to Kesha's rape allegations. Being dropped by Sony might be another thing they can use against her.
We'll keep you updated as we learn more.

What's a superhero gotta do to join the Avengers!?
That's essentially the motivation behind Peter Parker's web-slinging in the new trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming!
Sony dropped an all new trailer for the upcoming action flick on Tuesday, revealing just how desperate Tom Holland's Spider-Man is to join Iron Man & Co.
How desperate, you ask? Enough to go against Robert Downey Jr.'s wishes to stay out of trouble (LOL, yeah right) and let the professionals handle the new villain in town, The Vulture (Michael Keaton).

After being cautioned by a paternal Tony Stark, Spidey leaps into action to prove his worthiness by knocking out bad guys and attempting to hold a literal sinking ship together with his web powers. You gotta EARN that Infinity War appearance, PP!!
We also see Peter with a classmate who apparently knows his secret identity, a smoking hot Aunt May (Marisa Tomei), and even a quick shot of Zendaya playing a girl who needs saving (Is that you, Mary Jane?).
Ch-ch-check out the action-packed trailer (below) — and catch Spider-Man: Homecoming in theaters July 7!
Amy Schumer has officially bounced from living in Barbie's world!
On Thursday, the Trainwreck star revealed that she'll no longer be playing Barbie in the highly anticipated live-action flick. After all that drama, and we don't even get to see Amy in Barbie-land? So sad.

The Inside Amy Schumer creator explained:
"Sadly, I'm no longer able to commit to Barbie due to scheduling conflicts. The film has so much promise, and Sony and Mattel have been great partners. I'm bummed, but look forward to seeing Barbie on the big screen."
Bummer. Thankfully, there's no hard feelings with the studio as a spokesperson for Sony noted in their own statement:
Kesha's case against Dr. Luke, AKA Lukasz Gottwald, has been dealt one of the most savage legal blows since it began, certainly since she was denied an injunction last year.
The Timber singer is trying to get out of her contract legally after claiming her former producer raped her. But so far all she's gotten is sued by Gottwald for trying to ruin his name with the allegations.
Kesha previously tried to get out of her contract by describing her alleged rape as a hate crime on the part of Dr. Luke — but that was rebuffed.

This time, she attempted to amend her countersuit against the producer, trying two new tactics to argue her case.
In the first, she argued recording artists should have a legal backdoor available to them, like divorce for married couples. Her argument went:
The good news is we're FINALLY going to get a sequel to 2011's The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo!
Sony announced on Monday they are rebooting the literary franchise with an adaptation of The Girl In The Spider's Web, the novel written by David Lagercrantz after Millennium trilogy author Stieg Larsson passed away in 2004.
Fede Alvarez, who has already shown he can bring the tension in under budget in horror hit Don't Breathe, will direct with a release date planned for October 5, 2018 (opposite Aquaman, assuming Warner Bros can hold it together).

Now for the bad news. The film's stars are NOT reprising their roles.
Daniel Craig reportedly wanted a pay raise to return as Mikael Blomkvist, but Sony is looking to spend a LOT less on the R-rated sequel. We still aren't sure why they aren't bringing back the Oscar-nominated Rooney Mara.
So who should play the titular hacker, one of the most badass female characters ever on the big screen? Alvarez has big plans. He said:
