Boo! Weinsteins Ignoring The Fraggle Rock Movie!

Filed under: TV NewsFilm Flickers

fraggle rock movie being ignored by the weinsteins

We wish the Weinsteins would give us the chance to dance our cares away once again!

We were SO excited to report that a Fraggle Rock live-action musical movie was on the way…back in 2008!

Now, several years later, Fraggle Rock: The Movie director Cory Edwards is ready to move forward, but the Weinstein Company has been totally ignoring him!

Here's what Edwards had to say about it on his blog:

Many, many, many of you have repeatedly asked for some kind of update on the Fraggle Rock movie. The truth is, I got nothin’. There’s nothing to report except that The Weinstein Company has everything they need to move forward, and the ball is in their court. They’ve talked about getting a new writer, which I’m willing to do. They’ve talked about starting over from scratch, which I’m willing to do. But I have not heard a peep from their camp in almost a year.

I completely sympathize with all of you that are waiting for a movie, but let’s all remember that the next best thing to making a Fraggle movie is avoiding making a BAD ONE. So at least we’re doing that. Until something new happens to awaken the project from its deep coma, we can at least enjoy the untainted TV series on DVD and The Hub Network. As for me, I’m already working on new things. I hope you’ll stick around and check in here… I’ll be announcing my next project very, very soon.

Obviously the Weinsteins are going to do whatever they want to do, but in our opinion, we'd say they should give this delightful franchise a little bit of time, and maybe let Nintendo, Sony, and Microsoft deal with video games….

Just sayin'!

Would U like to see the Fraggle Rock movie finally happen?

Ed Harris To Play John McCain In HBO's Game Change

ed harris to play john mccain in hbo film

Earlier this month, we were excited to learn that Tina Fey Julianne Moore had signed on to play Sarah Palin in HBO Films' upcoming adaptation of the best selling book Game Change by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin.

Now, we've learned about another addition to the cast of the film based on the 2008 general election: Ed Harris as John McCain!

This took us a minute to process, but now we're thinking he's a great choice!

We're not sure who else would have been good for this part…unless they could get John McCain to play himself! He's been pret-ty amusing on SNL, so maybe that could have worked? Ha!

We think Ed will do a great job, though. After his performances in films like Gone Baby Gone, A History of Violence, The Rock, and A Beautiful Mind, we're more than confident in his acting abilities.

Do U think Ed Harris is a good choice for John McCain?

Stolen Harry Winston Jewels Found Stashed In A Drain

20-million-in-stolen-harry-winston-jewlery-recovered-in-drain-pipe-from-2008-robbery.jpg

This is amazing.

Earlier this week police recovered nearly $20 million worth of Harry Winston jewelry that was stolen from the Paris boutique in December of 2008.

Investigators found the pricey baubles hidden in a drainpipe at the home of Daoudi Yahiaoui, who is believed to be the brainchild behind the $100 million robbery.

The loot found inside a plastic container and concrete mold included 19 rings valued between $1.6 million and $8.4 million and 3 earrings.

Sneaky, sneaky Mr. Robber.

After hearing the fantastic news, Harry Winston issued a statement saying they are "very grateful to the French police for the continued dedication to this matter, and will continue to cooperate with the authorities in their ongoing investigation."

You Don't Mess With Ireland, Prince!

prince gets sued

Looks like Howard Stern isn't the only one who's got issues with Prince right now!

After canceling a 2008 concert at Croke Park in Ireland, MCD Productions has filed a lawsuit against Prince for 2.2 million euros, plus interest.

Apparently, the compensation amount mentioned (above) was decided in Ireland's High Court, but the singer never paid up.

Here's what was written about it in court documents:

"MCD seeks this Court's recognition of judgment of the High Court of Ireland entered against the Defendant Prince Rogers Nelson on March 26, 2010 in the amount of €2.2 million [euros].

“The judgment resulted from an action commenced by MCD following Prince's cancellation of a concert that was scheduled to take place on June 16, 2008 in Ireland."

"…there is now due, owing and unpaid on the Judgment the sum of €2,200,000.00, together with interest at the legal rate of 8% pursuant to applicable Irish law from and after March 26, 2010."

Sounds like you may have no option but to pay up, Prince!

Let this be a warning to artists out there who may be reading this: NEVER CANCEL A CONCERT IN IRELAND!

Do U think Prince should pay up? Or should he fight this?
