Star Trek 2 Writer Spills Some Deets On The Sequel!

Filed under: Film Flickers

Relax, Trekkies! The sequel is on its way!

While J.J. Abrams is hard at work on his new flick, Super 8, the development of Star Trek 2 is well underway, and the script's co-writer Roberto Orci, who is currently penning it with Alex Kurtzman, recently opened up about the project, and spilled some pretty exciting deets about its progress!

He explains:

"Just been waiting for JJ to be free to really decide if he likes the story and hear his suggestions before we finish the script. Once he says go, we’ll have it in no time. Meanwhile, our outline is detailed enough (70+ pages!) to do some prep. In the meetings we’ve had with JJ, he’s already given us amazing input and ideas, and that’s been while he’s been up to his eyeballs in Super 8."

Holy shiz! That is QUITE the outline!

Here's hoping that it will be enough for them to kick the writing process into gear when Abrams has enough time to focus his attention onto the material!

We're really looking forward to seeing where they take this one, especially given how fresh and imaginative the first reboot was!

What do U think?? Are U excited for Star Trek 2?

Justin Bieber In The Middle Of The Dream/Christina Milian Divorce Drama!

the-dream-and-christina-milian-battle-over-justin-bieber-baby-interest

Poor Justin Bieber!

We bet he didn't see this drama coming his way!

The singer is apparently in the middle of a nasty divorce settlement going on between The Dream and Christina Milian - because she wants more than the originally agreed upon 10% of the songwriter's publishing interest for Baby, the track he co-wrote for Bieber!

According to court documents, now that Milian is trying to demand more support, The Dream is now attempting to cancel ANY payments to her!

Good lord! It just never ends with these two, does it?

C'mon guys, get it together! If just for the sake of your kid!

Sad. Thoughts??

First Look At Beth Ditto's New Memoir!

Filed under: Music MinuteBeth Ditto

Oh! We bet that this is going to be a great read!

Check out the cover (above) for Gossip singer Beth Ditto's upcoming memoir, Coal To Diamonds!

Co-written by Michelle Tea, the piece will highlight Ditto's childhood in Arkansas, her experiences during her rise to fame, and her struggle with self-image!

The synopsis reads:

'My life was supposed to be simple and non-negotiable: birth, church, work, marriage, kids, death. But along the way something happened. COAL INTO DIAMONDS is my story - growing up feeling like you are on the margins of society and struggling to find your place. My memoir talks directly to disenfranchised, misunderstood kids everywhere.'

Beth Ditto is known for her remarkable voice (which has been compared to Etta James and Janice Joplin), her talent ('fuckin immense' - Noel Gallagher) and her forthright rejection of what a pop singer should look like. As a 5 foot, 15 stone gay singer, Beth was never going to be ignored but her talent plus her exuberant opinions have made her a heroine for the alternative music scene. Beth grew up in the Bible-belt town of Searcy, Arkansas as the middle child of seven. She says they were a classic trailer-park family, 'crazy poor', who sometimes shot and ate squirrels for entertainment. Beth realized she wasn't cut out for a life of 'teenage pregnancy or crystal meth addiction', and after years of being bullied for being fat and loud, she managed to get away to Olympia, Washington State, where she immediately found like-minded people. It was this move that opened her eyes to another way of living - one where you were not judged for how you looked, but who you were, and where your talents were encouraged. COAL INTO DIAMONDS tells the full story of Beth's journey to success and fulfilment. She has never forgotten how it is to be an outsider and shares her homespun wisdom as well as many wonderful stories of her misspent youth before her song 'Standing in the Way of Control' became an anthem for alternative music fans the world over.

Amazing! We cannot wait to check this one!

We're proud of you for being so candid about your life, bb!

Congrats!

What do U think?? Do U want to check out Beth's memoir??

Ingrid Michaelson Does New Version Of Parachute!

Very cool!

Although Cheryl Tweedy recorded the gorgeous single Parachute for her first solo album, 3 Words, last year, the track was actually co-written by Ingrid Michaelson, who has just done her own version of the song - with an accompanying music video (above)!

We're really digging this version!

It's fascinating to listen to how they each make the song their own!

What do U think?? Do U like Ingrid's version or Chezza's more??

These Two Are Collaborating Again??

Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts were spotted shooting a new flick together last night in El Lay!

The film is called Larry Crowne, and Hanks is not only starring, producing, and directing, but he co-wrote the script with My Big Fat Greek Wedding's Nia Vardalos!

The story is apparently a dramedy about a middle-aged man who loses his job and decides to go back to college.

Sounds kind of boring, but we'll stay cautiously optimistic. These two tend to pull through!

Thoughts??
