Tittays And Coke Are Staying In Facebook Movie

the-social-network-poster-2.jpg

Although producer Scott Rudin was hesitant about leaving a scene of hard core pAARtying in The Social Network because it depicts real people, the full scene isn't going anywhere.

Rudin has let certain Facebook execs read the script and have accommodated certain requests to change dialogue, but nothing major. It was also considered whether to cut out a scene with Napster co-founder, Sean Parker, who delivered a speech at a partly while two girls offered cocaine off their bare breasts.

Justin Timberlake plays Parker in the film and was a well known confidant of Mark Zuckerberg, but left the company in 2005 after a cocaine-related arrest. The scene in the film is not based on real events.

Facebook rep, Larry Yu, said:

“Maybe the movie is a sign that Facebook has become meaningful to people, even if the movie is fiction. What the movie may or may not contain is not what we’re focused on. What matters more is building a useful, innovative service that people enjoy using to connect and share.”

Ha. And all anyone cares about is all the shiz they got into!

If anyone's going to fill Dame Elizabeth Taylor's faboosh shoes, it should most certainly be HER!

Producer Scott Rudin has purchased the rights to the yet-to-be-released biography, Queen of the Nile, Cleopatra: A Life, and the only person he has in mind to take on the iconic role is none other than Miz Angelina Jolie!

His office confirms that the film "is being developed for and with Jolie," and even the novel's author, Stacy Schiff, agrees!

She says:

"Physically, she's the perfect look."

We think she would RAWK this shiz! Definitely excited to see this one pan out!

What do U think?? Should Angie play Miz Cleo??

Creators Of South Park Get Mormon For Broadway!

Filed under: TV NewsBroadway BabiesDisney

This is going to EFFING RIDICULOUS.

We can't wait!!

The brilliant creators of South Park, Trey Parker and Matt Stone, have always infused their hysterical comedy series with musical numbers and songs, so it's no surprise that they've been working on a stage musical, but one based on the Mormon faith?!

Apparently so!

The team has collaborated with Avenue Q creator Robert Lopez, director Jason Moore and producers Scott Rudin and Anne Garefino on The Book of Mormon, which will revolve around two Mormon missionaries attempting to spread their faith in Uganda, interwoven with the story of Mormon founder Joseph Smith!

WTF?? We know!

But for all the Mormons in the world whose hearts just stopped, you can relax for the most part - despite their usual dose of political incorrectness and satire, the HIGHlarious writers have no ill will for the faith!

Stone asserts that none of their work, especially South Park, would never work "if it didn't have a heart."

"We learned a long time ago that if something is cynical just for the sake of being cynical, it won't last too long."

Parker agrees:

"There's a lot of Mormon stuff in our work because Matt and I both grew up around a lot of Mormons. I've never met a Mormon I didn't like. They're really nice people. They're so Disney. They're so Rodgers and Hammerstein. We're bigger authorities on The Book of Mormon than most Mormons. Broadway is big and scary to us. And by no means are we coming in to kick Broadway's ass. We're pretty sure we're going to get our asses kicked. But Bobby and Scott and Jason have a lot of the theater experience, so with their help, maybe we won't fall flat on our faces."

As bizarre as the concept is, we're confident that these guys will pull it off! They've got a great team assembled and rarely miss their mark.

What do U think?? Are U excited for The Book of Mormon??
