Ah! She speaks!

We've been anxiously awaiting what she has to say about this ever since it was announced!

Now that the creators of Dynasty have announced that a big-screen remake is in the works, the iconic Joan Collins - who portrayed the true baddest bitch to ever walk the Earth in a padded shoulder dress, Alexis Carrington - is speaking out about the project, and she has some pretty FANTASTIC opinions as to whom exactly should be cast!

Chris Pine for Blake and Gemma Arterton for Alexis!

She explains:

"She has all the qualities that Alexis needs. She's sexy. She looks clever and she's kind of vixenous. I do think Chris Pine would be great as Blake. He's a wonderful actor."

Granted, if she had it her way, SHE would be playing the part she originated herself!

She continues:

"I certainly couldn't play her in a prequel in the 1960s. But I always thought they should do it today with Alexis' grandchildren, who about 20 years ago were five and six."

YES! We like the idea of a modern-day Dynasty with Joan as Alexis just as much as a prequel - if not more!

C'mon, guys! Maybe she needs to show up at the beginning in 2011 - and then you can FLASH BACK to the '60s, so audiences can see how it all began!

Brilliance!

What do U think?? Should Joan Collins be in the new Dynasty movie??

It's Happening! Dynasty Movie In The Works!

Filed under: TV NewsFilm Flickers

dynasty-movie-in-the-works

Holy crap! This is ACTUALLY happening!

Although the proposed movie adaptation of classic series Dallas never panned it, Richard Shapiro has revealed that his even BETTER '80s prime-time soap, Dynasty, is getting the big-screen treatment!

The series creator explains that the film adaptation will be a prequel to the show, set in the 1960s, and will focus on oil tycoon Blake Carrington's - originally played by John Forsythe - discovery that he's the heir to his family's empire, and his love affair with the TRUE baddest bitch of all-time, Alexis Morell - AKA Joan Collins!!

He says:

"It's not the wild and crazy 1960s, but the early Kennedy years. We've given thought to the movie before and we've been approached by a lot of companies, but no one seemed to have a proper fix on it. Then suddenly we said, 'Let's do it [ourselves]!'—and we're the ones to do it. It was my daughter Florie's notion to do a prequel, and that sounded very very good to us. It's how young Blake doesn't realize he's the son of Tom Carrington, but then he finds himself at the head of this company and surrounded by assassins and people who want to do him in."

So yeah. This is pretty much the best news ever!

It doesn't matter if this thing is good or bad, it's still going to be amazing!

They just had BETTER bring back Joan in some capacity, or else we will BOYCOTT this shiz!

Hell, they might as well just have her play Alexis again, because we're not sure we can think of anyone else who could possibly do that character justice!

What do U think?? Are U excited to see a Dynasty movie?? WHO should play Alexis??!

Our Dreams Came True! Tiffany And Debbie Gibson Teaming Up For SyFy TV Movie!

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteFilm FlickersZ List

We have clearly died and gone to washed out, '80s pop star has-been heaven!

The SyFy channel has made all of our dreams come true and cast Debbie Gibson and Tiffany against each other in the instant classic, Mega Python vs. Gatoroid!

According to Executive VP of Programming and Original Movies Thomas Vitale, the duo were completely thrilled with the idea of working together and poking fun at their pop-star rivalry way back when!

He says:

“They loved the idea of taking this perceived rivalry and having some fun with it. The catfight on 'Dynasty' was a seminal TV moment and it's time to re-create that for a new generation."

Gibson says:

"I know that pop culture fanatics have been dying for Tiffany and me to collaborate for the past 24 years! What better way to do it than by battling each other in a campy romp through the Everglades?”

And Tiffany agrees:

"Only in my dreams have I been able to have a catfight with Debbie Gibson…until now! This is soo MEGA cool!"

Amazeballs amazeballs amazeballs!

We can't wait to tune in and see all of this low-budget shiz go down!

What do U think?? Will U watch Mega Python vs. Gatorade Gatoroid?

R.I.P. SoapNet!

Filed under: R.I.P.DisneyBusiness Blitz

Sorry, all of you Dynasty re-run addicts! It's time to say good-bye!

In a surprise move, Disney is closing down shop on its SoapNet channel and launching the pre-school oriented Disney Junior channel in its place!

Anne Sweeney, co-chair of Disney Media Networks and president of Disney/ABC Television Group, announced:

"The decision to ultimately transition SoapNet to accomplish this was not arrived at lightly. SoapNet was created in 2000 to give daytime viewers the ability to watch time-shifted soaps, before multi-platform viewing and DVRs were part of our vocabulary. But today, as technology and our businesses evolve, it makes more sense to align this distribution with a preschool channel that builds on the core strengths of our company."

We wonder how this new channel will fare against the already established PBS Kids and Nick, Jr.!

What do U think?? Is Disney making a smart move replacing their soaps with more children's programming??

Another actor from '80s soap Dynasty passed away just a week after John Forsythe's death.

British actor Christopher Cazenove died after a "valiant battle" with septicaemia, according to his family. He contracted the disease in February.

His Dynasty co-star Joan Collins says, "He was an absolutely charming man and a very good actor. I very much enjoyed working with him during my time on Dynasty."

Cazenove was only 66 years old.

Sad.
