We REALLY hope this is the last time we hear about David engaging in such deplorable behavior!
Earlier today, we heard that The Fighter director David O. Russell was questioned by police for feeling up his pre-op transgender relative Nicholas Peloquin.
Now, a rep for the Broward County Sheriff's Office in Florida has announced that David won't be charged with anything over the incident.
Here's why he'll get off the hook, according to the rep:

According to a police report, The Fighter director David O. Russell was NOT behaving appropriately with his pre-op transgender relative Nicholas Peloquin last week.
As it goes, David was working out at a Florida hotel gym with his mother's 19-year-old adopted brother, when he offered to help Nicholas "with ab exercises."
While doing so, David's hand

Back in March, we first heard about the possibility of a sequel to Oscar-winning film The Fighter, and we didn't think it was a good idea.
As we said back then, we think that The Fighter was a wonderful film, with fantastic performances, and we don't want them to ruin the integrity of the original by sequelizing it.
Fortunately, it looks like they're not making a direct sequel right now, but director David O. Russell has

Christian Bale's definitely got the beard for it!
There is chatter about the Dark Knight showing his lighter side in Darren Aronofsky's biblical blockbuster Noah.
Although, let's be honest. If the guy who brought us Requiem For A Dream, The Wrestler, and Black Swan is behind this bible story, we doubt there will be anything light about it!
Bale, who won an Academy Award for his performance in The Fighter, has proven his ability to bring intensity to the screen as well, so we think this actor and director are a heavenly combination!
Do U think Christian Bale would be a good Noah?

Lookin' good in that faux fur, Pee-Wee! The Tony is yours for sure!
Check out the photo (above) of Pee-Wee Herman's new ad for the Tonys, which seems pret-ty similar to Melissa Leo's Oscars ad that landed her the Best Supporting Actress award for The Fighter!
Best of luck,
Paul Reubens Pee-Wee!!!!
…Wait a second! You weren't nominated for anything! LOLz.

We haven't heard anything about the film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies for quite some time, but now it looks like wheels are moving again!
We've just learned that Fright Night writing/directing team Marti Noxon and Craig Gillespie will be teaming up once again for Zombies.
The Fighter director David O. Russell wrote the script before leaving the project, and now Noxon will rework it before they move forward with production.
For those of you who haven't read the book, the story "retells Jane Austen’s classic tale about the romance between the independent Elizabeth Bennet and the snooty Mr. Darcy"…but there are zombies involved.
Sounds like it'll be a while before this movie actually starts production, but we'll keep our eyes peeled! Should def be a fun flick!
Are U excited to hear that wheels are moving once again on Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?

She may be gone, but she will certainly be remembered.
Alice Ward, who was portrayed by Melissa Leo in The Fighter, has passed away at 79-years-old.
According to family friend John Descoteaux, Alice died yesterday at a Boston hospital after being removed from life support. She had gone into cardiac arrest back in January, and ceased breathing for over 30 minutes.
Our thoughts go out to Alice's family and friends during this difficult time.
