Are you a movie fan? Well, here is some movie news you should be excited about and ready to laugh.
First Will Smith and Queen Latifah are teaming up to produce a hip hop version of William Shakespeare’s classic Romeo and Juliet. According to Deadline, the movie will be directed by Solvan “Slick” Naim, an Algerian-American filmmaker and rapper. He co-wrote the adaptation with Dave Broome.
In a statement on Deadline’s website, the producers stated “The plot is said to be a contemporary musical take on Romeo and Juliet set against the urban rhythms of New York. The love story follows a young waitress from the streets of Brooklyn and an aspiring musician from a wealthy family whose unconventional romance forces them to confront their life choices.”
The movie will air on Netflix. No timeline or casting has been announced yet.
Next…John Wick 3 knocked Avengers: Endgame from the top spot over the weekend making $57 million. As exciting as that is, Avengers: Endgame did reach $771 million to surpass James Cameron’s Avatar as the No. 2 highest-grossing movie ever in the US and Canada. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is the number 1 with $937 million in the US and Canada.
Also in movie news, Halle Berry announced what she thinks is her worst film. While playing “Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts” on The Late Late Show With James Corden, she was asked what was her worst film, she joked and said, “There’s so many!”. In the game, if the guest decides not to answer the question, they have to eat something disgusting, but Berry answered. Which movie did she say? 1996’s “Rich Man’s Wife.”
She told Corden that “I’m sorry, everybody who worked on this movie. I kind of knew that a movie I did called … The Rich Man’s Wife was not going—I’m sorry, Amy Holden, she was the director, and I’m not trying to bash my female directors, I’m not—but I kind of knew it wasn’t going to be the greatest cinematic experience for the people.” Then she laughed and said, “You go into these movies always with the best intention. Nobody wants to make a bad movie. We think everything is a good idea at the time, we say, ‘yes.’ And then sometimes you get on the set and you realize, ‘What was I, high, when I agreed to do this? Was I smoking crack?’” WOW! Okay then.
