5 Things You Missed Today (December 17)
We just love it when our favorite guys work together. Take for example Joseph Gordon-Levitt who shared a photo of him with Zac Efron (like a sir with that mustache) and director Evan Goldberg recently. Zac is working with JGL for his guest appearance on the popular TV series HitRecord On TV. As for the deets of his role on the ep (or eps?). We don't know yet but we're really excited to see the product of their hardwork!
Speaking of TV series, Glee is airing its last season soon, and we're really looking forward to it after watching their teaser wherein Rachel (Lea Michele) sings "Let It Go" from the movie Frozen and is planning a little rebellious act with Kurt (Chris Colfer). Glee will be having a 2-hour premiere when it goes back on air in January.
Exciting news for Taylor Swift fans. Remember when we spotted Jay Z, Beyonce, and Justin Timberlake at T-Swizzle's 25th birthday bash recently? According to reports, the birthday was also a business meeting of sorts for the 4 music icons. Apparently, Jay Z wanted to do music with the "Blank Space" hitmaker, thinking she's "an extreme powerhouse" herself. Ohh, we can't wait to hear the music they'll be doing together next year (hopefully).
A new trailer for the live action adaptation of Cinderella is here! This clip gives us a closer look into Cinderella's life as a servant and her fateful meeting with Prince Charming. Not-so spoiler alert: there's a glass slipper! Cinderella is set to premiere in the country on March 11, 2015.
Two book adaptations made headlines today, Candy Girls!
- Jennifer Niven's debut YA novel, All the Bright Places is set to be made into a film which will star Elle Fanning. The story is "told in alternating voices about a girl who learns to live from a boy who intends to die." With a story that reminds readers of John Green's The Fault in Our Stars + Rainbow Rowell's Eleanor and Park, the film version of All the Bright Places is under producers, Paula Mazur and Mitchell Kaplan who are known for the web series, Delirium.
- With author Neil Gaiman, David S. Goyer, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt working on the adaptation of the Sandman series of graphic novels, it looks like the movie version is really pushing through. The author recently revealed who he wants to play the main character, Morpheus, and fans will surely be happy to hear his choice. "There was a time Johnny Depp would've been a great Morpheus, but now he's too old and it's fine," he said in an interview. "I think the first time I saw Benedict [Cumberbatch] was as Sherlock Holmes, I thought, 'wow, that's incredibly Morpheus'. And fans probably thought the same because they immediately started doing fan-art, meshing the two of them up." But because Benedict has something else, he won't be able to do the film anymore. The twist? Another Englishman is Neil's choice. "Then again, Tom Hiddleston is still out there! And the truth is, as far as I'm concerned, anybody who sounds English with great cheekbones can probably pull it off." Isn't this exciting? We hope Tom accepts the role!
