From its start on Broadway, Spring Awakening has captured the hearts on many and now, composer and recording artist, Duncan Sheik is trying to get it made into a movie with his partner in crime, Steven Sater!
In an interview with the San Diego Union-Tribune, Duncan talked about his upcoming projects and revealed he's in the process of getting Spring Awakening made into a movie.
We’re trying to get the Spring Awakening movie made this year. It’s in process, and we have a fancy director (McG) and a fancy producer (Playtone, Tom Hanks’ company) involved. So fingers crossed we’ll be diving into it.
And with a musical turned movie almost always comes new music, right??
Duncan talks about writing a new song for the Broadway musical turned movie:
You always have to write a new song. People say all kinds of stuff about this: "Oh, we really needed this moment of emotion for the character to come alive." But the real truth always is that it’s the only way you’re eligible for an Academy Award, is to have a new song.
(So) we’ve written the song. I can’t wait to do it - I hope i get to do it, to record it.
Casting has yet to be announced, but we've got two names for you, Duncan.
We've had Criminal on repeat for over fifteen years, but we never realized Fiona Apple was actually a law breaker until now!
The iconic songstress did something most unexpected recently, she took her talents to a French television show! Even more shocking? The show, H-Man, is about superheroes!!!! Wackier than that?! Fiona plays a fabulous super-villain!
It's true! The 36-year-old singer actress plays a flora-loving fiend! She an eco-terrorist with a Poison Ivy-eque control over plants and stuff!
Ch-ch-check out her guest spot in the vid (above)!
Whoa! Are we Sleep to Dream-ing or did that madness really happen?
We have no idea what any of the characters were saying, but we love it!
Even though he's been gone from your boob tube for some time, he's about to make his grand return…and he's bringing his family with him!
We knew The Situation was working on a reality TV show project, and now it has landed on TV Guide Network.
The Sorrentinos follows his family as they, well, get through life together. And if we've learned anything from his days on Jersey Shore, we know gym, tanning, and laundry will be involved. LOLz!
You can ch-ch-check out the preview (below), but that's not all!
This little reality TV return got us thinking about other former stars who should make a reality TV comeback.
Check out five former stars who should follow in his footsteps with new shows of their own…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Camille Grammer: The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star is just too fab to leave us this soon! We've seen her marriage fall apart, were torn up over her cancer battle, and heard the details about her brutal relationship with her most recent ex, but this woman keeps on fighting! And we want to see that! Plus, we've been missing her AH-Mazing side eyes!
Courtney Robertson: We wonder what this former Bachelor star is up to. After winning Benjamin Flajnik's heart (and making enemies with all the ladies) during season 16, we heard she was writing a tell-all book. And what goes better with a tell-all then a reality TV show?? If you watched the Bachelor, you know this girl would bring some entertainment during her one-on-one interviews!
Dr. Will Kirby: He took the Big Brother house by storm during the second season, and no one has forgotten him since. Later, he started dating another reality star, For Love & Money star Erin Brodie! And get this, they now have TWO children. Could you imagine a reality show about Dr. Will's home life?? Perfection!
Heather Chadwell: Don't tell us you don't remember Heather Chadwell from Rock of Love! She showed her boobies to Bret Michaels within minutes of meeting him. You're right, we'll narrow that down. She looked totally '80s the whole season. You're right, we'll narrow that down. She got his name tattooed on her neck! You know all those things we just mentioned basically make her a reality TV dream. We'd love to see men fighting over her on an all new show!
Ryan Lochte: Ok, so his first attempt at a reality TV show was a bit of a fail. But maybe that's because he kept his clothes on so much! Perhaps the viewers would be more inclined to tune in if the show was called Ryan Lochte: A Look Into His Shirtless Life.
And HERE is the preview for The Situation's new show:
Taste that?? That's flavor of an extra-large cup of shade (with free refills)!!
Starting today, McDonald's will be giving away free 12-ounce cups of coffee all month to promote McCafé coffee hitting the shelves at a grocery store near you!
However, their rivals at Taco Bell seem to think the move is a direct response to their recently launched breakfast menu, leading to a fast-food war the likes of which we've never seen!
Taco Bell released a not-so-subtle statement, saying:
"We just launched the next generation of breakfast—it's not a two-week promotion. Clearly, our competition is taking notice and reacting."
Oh SNAP!! Talk about a super-sized diss!!
Of course, it probably doesn't help that Taco Bell kicked things off by poking fun a McDonald's with a pretty hilarious ad showing multiple men named Ronald McDonald chowing down on their new waffle taco!
Mickey D's shot back by tweeting a picture of the REAL Ronald McDonald petting a chihuahua (above) and writing:
"Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery."
OHHHH! WOULD YOU LIKE FRIES WITH THAT BURN?!?!
There's no telling just how far this back and forth will go, but it seems clear to us that these two fast food chains do NOT like each other!!
These days, we’re pretty sure almost everyone has bad posture.
EXCEPT for Jefferson High School band teacher Brian Sullivan, apparently.
The music teacher has been put on paid administrative leave after he reportedly duct taped a student’s ankles to her chair because she wouldn’t keep her feet on the floor.
Even though the girl had on jeans and boots, she was obviously shaken and went and told the people in charge.
Some students are passing out fliers, however, telling people that Mr. Sullivan did nothing wrong and the student is overreacting!
What makes this even more complicated is that the band is all set to go on a field trip to Disney World to perform on April 9th!
As for what will happen to the educator, Jefferson Schools Supt. Craig A. Haugen said:
“The district is in the process of collecting information regarding the details to resolve the issue in a timely manner. The teacher is on paid administrative leave and may not have contact with any students in any manner or be on Jefferson Schools’ property.”
Thankfully the girl wasn’t hurt, but what an odd thing for someone to do!
Those kids are lugging around backpacks and hunched over desks all day. Of course they struggle with posture!
According to sources, they just signed a contract with rocker grrrl Gwen Stefani!!!!
Yup, that's right, the ultra-talented lead singer of No Doubt will sit in a judge's chair on season 7 of The Voice while Xtina, well, stays at home and keeps busy with that whole miracle of life thing!
