Cute! Molly Shannon Writes A Children's Book

Filed under: TV News

molly shannon writes a childrens book

Back in November, we heard that The Simpsons writer-producer Tim Long was creating an HBO series for SNL alum Molly Shannon.

Haven't heard news on that project in while, but it looks like Miz Shannon is keeping plenty busy with a children's book she's writing, Tilly the Trickster, which will be released in September.

The book "tells the tale of a feisty, mischievous youngster named Tilly."

Shannon's publisher Abrams Books for Young Readers says that her inspirations for the book were "her childhood, Hollywood roles, and interactions with her children."

Here's what Molly had to say about the book:

"Tilly is an imperfectly perfect role model for young readers. Some kids are just born to make trouble–and also bound to find out how it feels when trouble finds them!"

Sounds like a funny story with heart and some good lessons for children! We approve!

Congrats, Molly! We'll look forward to hearing more when the book is released in September.

HBO Developing Series For Molly Shannon!

Filed under: TV News

It's about time!

The Simpsons writer-producer Tim Long is creating a series for SNL alum Molly Shannon - and it's coming to HBO.

Shannon will play an ex-nun, who leaves the convent and is forced to confront the outside world. The character became a nun after a breakup at 18 and is still is virgin in her early 40s.

Long said:

"It's James Joyce meets Judd Apatow — a female 40-Year-Old Virgin with a huge dollop of Catholic weirdness thrown in." It "will be outrageously funny — it's Molly Shannon, for crying out loud — but it'll also be a serious look at a woman who's 40 but emotionally still in her teens and who needs to get wise very quickly."

We love her! So glad to see Miz Shannon back on TV.

Goonies On Broadway?

could goonies go to broadway

With the upcoming 25th anniversary of The Goonies, wouldn't it be AWESOME if they made an announcement about the long-awaited sequel?

Unfortunately, that's unlikely to happen…but how would U like to see The Goonies on BROADWAY?!?!?

Here's what director Richard Donner had to say about the future of Goonies:

“We were thinking that (the sequel) for years back, couldn’t do it. Felt like everything we were doing would hurt what we had with the original, hence the musical. But Steven (Spielberg) said something the other day to me that he and Chris (Columbus) were talking about and maybe something — but I don’t think there’d be a sequel. I wouldn’t remake it. If anything it’d be something new and fresh. Hopefully we’re doing this as a musical on Broadway. It took forever to get on Broadway. It was a long, long process but it just got a lot shorter because there’s a great writer/producer (Tim Long) who does musicals on The Simpsons which are classic. He just delivered a treatment on ‘Goonies’ as a musical and it’s friggin’ great.”

Corey Feldman must be having a party in his head with the possibility of somehow getting involved with this project!

How excited are U for this? Do U think it'll actually happen?
