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??!

Lydia To Act Like Lohan

Model Lydia Hearst's landed her first mayjah movie gig!

The 26 year old is set to star in Dogs In Pocketbooks, where she'll play "a bratty movie goddess in and out of rehab, in trouble with the law, and hounded by greedy agents, predatory paparazzi, off-the-wall stalkers and crazed media — a role obviously based on Lindsay Lohan."

Screenwriter Charles Casillo says of Lydia:

"She's one of the few supermodels who can actually act. She's smart, well-read, charming and very beautiful. We looked at a lot of actresses for this role, and I was really knocked out."

And before you go and pick up the phone to complain ,Dina Lohan, Casillo says the film "is in no way mean-spirited towards Lindsay. It's the kind of thing she has spoofed about herself in the past."

We'd say that's fair.

Shooting for the film, which also stars Joan Collins as Lydia's agent, begins in February.

We're dying to see the trailer!

Joan Collins Clarifies Alleged Jennifer Aniston Dig!

joan-collins-clarifies-alleged-jennifer-aniston-diss

The truth comes out!

Joan Collins recently gave an interview in which she revealed that she thought Angelina Jolie was more beautiful than Jennifer Aniston, but she claims now that the controversial quote was taken out of context!

She explains:

"The bottom line is that I talked about several actresses, among them Catherine Zeta-Jones, Scarlett Johansson and Megan Fox. Unfortunately, everybody got cut out [except Aniston and Jolie]. Typical. That's the way it goes."

We love how matter-of-fact she is! And she's right!

And Jen didn't seem to miffed by the original comment, so we're glad that this silliness can now be put to rest!

What do U think?? Was Joan still out of line??

Joan Collins Vs Jennifer Aniston

joan-collins-doesnt-think-jen-aniston-is-pretty.jpg

Just another person in the world who prefers Angelina Jolie to Jennifer Aniston. We guess she is used to it by now!

Dynasty actress Joan Collins has a bone to pick with the Friends actress and really, all the ladies of Hollywood. In her eyes, there's no such thing as "good looking actresses" in Hollywood anymore, besides Saint Angie! Joan explains:

"When I was young, everybody on screen was gorgeous. I have to say, there aren’t that many good looking actresses around today. I mean, there’s Angelina Jolie and there’s… Angelina Jolie. Jennifer Aniston is cute, but I wouldn’t call her beautiful. She’s no Ava [Gardner] or Lana [Turner]."

You're comparing apples to oranges, BB! Besides, we'd like to refer you to the glamourous spread Jen did a few months back where she channelled the gorgeousness of Miz Streisand! Take a look at those photos and tell us if you still think she isn't faboosh!

Don't Wear Jeans Around Joan!

wenn5428497_e.jpg

Joan Collins may be a fan of fake jewelry, unfortunately she can't say the same thing about jeans.

The Dynasty diva recently vented her distaste for the fashion staple saying:

"I haven't liked jeans for years - probably because their ubiquity has become terribly boring. Do people really want to conform to looking just like everyone else? Yes, I know denim is hard-wearing and practical, but do the ladies who lunch really want to wear long-lasting utilitarian gear, teamed with chic Chanel or luxury leather on top, while showing off at the Ritz or smart restaurants such as San Lorenzo and the Wolseley? A pencil skirt and opaque tights or simple dark trousers would look infinitely more elegant."

However, like us, she too is confused by ridiculously priced jeans a la Hudson's Resurrection collection:

"It astounds me to hear some of my friends talking about their designer jeans that cost upwards of £500 - what a waste of money! I see little difference between these and the knock-off styles abounding in the high street shops."

Amen, sister, amen!
