Lee will direct an adaptation of Ben Fountain’s “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk."
The material takes Lee back to wartime drama, which he explored in 2007’s “Lust, Caution,” set in Japanese-occupied Hong Kong and Shanghai during World War II. But "Billy Lynn" is a far different story. And it’s hardly a conventional war picture.
Written by “Slumdog Millionaire” scribe Simon Beaufoy, “Lynn” will tell of its title character, a 19-year-old who leads a group of troops on a mission in Iraq. The squad, known as the Bravos, survives the sortie, and when a news crew captures it on film, its principals become heroes.
The story is set at a Thanksgiving Day football game in Texas, where Lynn and his squad are being celebrated (a release doesn’t say it’s the annual Cowboys contest, as it is in the book; we’ll see if the production makes a deal with the NFL). The battle scenes are told in flashbacks.
Narrated by its main character, “Lynn’s” story is hardly one of unmitigated heroism. As the group is feted at the game — throwing back drinks, awaiting a Destiny’s Child concert — they both revel in and wonder deeply about the hoopla, as they prepare to be shipped back to Iraq. The release described the planned film as “funny and heartbreaking.”
Ang Lee's Ali/Frazier Biopic may not happen.
Budget reasons and delays are why Lee might choose to work on a smaller project instead of the sports drama. Ironically, Lee is partially to blame for the delay because he only wanted to make the 3D boxing film when the technology was just right.
Producer James Schamus told Screen Daily that Lee is "pushing the technology toward the absolute future of cinema, and pushing it even further than what you saw in Life Of Pi." He then explained that Lee wants to put the audience "in the ring with these guys," while also incorporating 3D technology that is able to enhance "horizontal fast motion [and] the close-ups"

Chris “CT” Tamburello and Diem Brown of MTV’s “The Challenge” have shared an epic love story spanning over eight years, and regardless of whether they’re “on” or “off,” their deep affection for one another knows no bounds. Recently, Diem was diagnosed with colon cancer after beating ovarian cancer twice before, and this photo of CT lying at her hospital bedside, hand intertwined with hers, is all the evidence you need of their extraordinary bond.
“Sometimes just being there for someone can be the difference between a good and bad day. @diembrown could definitely use a few… Please go to her support page"
Brown was hospitalized on Thursday (September 25) in New York City following the discovery of a tumor causing blockage in her kidneys.
“They told me there I had complete blockage of my left kidney and 75 percent blockage of my right because of swelling and tumors,” she explained to People, “so they had to do a surgery and put in stents so things could flow normally again.”
“I didn’t realize that all the back pain was because of my kidneys,” she said.
Brown had recently been working on putting on weight following her last surgery in mid-August in order to begin chemotherapy.
“I was supposed to get my ‘chemo cocktail,’” on Tuesday of last week, she explained, “but after they did the blood draw they saw a spike in my kidney levels, so they were only able to give me one of the two chemos.” Those tests ultimately led to an ultrasound the next day, which led to the discovery of the tumor.
Thankfully, Brown has a strong support system in her best friends who are constantly by her side.
So sad. Hope she beats this yet again :(

I'm so excited for this album! High Dive is my favorite so far but none of the songs have disappointed.
Niykee Heaton is the ultimate reminder that you should never judge a book by its cover (even if the cover is really, really hot). After making waves with an acoustic cover of Chief Keef‘s “Love Sosa”, the 19-year-old established a reputation as an Instagram model with an onslaught of sexy pics that would make Rihanna jealous. But there’s so much more to the budding diva that social media seduction.
For starters, she has a gorgeous, gravelly voice and serious songwriting chops. Still not convinced? Take a listen to her excellent debut EP 'Bad Intentions', which dropped today (September 23) via Steve Rifkind and Russell Simmons‘ new All Def Digital label. She effortlessly jumps from the gut-wrenchingly confessional “Sober” — a track about her dad’s struggle with alcoholism — to bass-heavy party jams like the swag-drenched “Villa”.
My favorite cuts find Niykee in a more contemplative mood. “Rolling Stone”, a folk-tinged, mid-tempo ballad, showcases the depth the teenager’s artistry and somehow manages to be both subtle and ridiculously catchy. The same goes for the more straightforward title track/lead single, which offers some insight into the newcomer’s bad girl image. You can stream the EP over at Complex or on Spotify.
im into the ep, it's fun + chick's talented...bad intentions and champagne are so good.
They got engaged in April and just three months later, Amber Lee and Ethan Diamond found out they are expecting their first child together.
Now, the MTV stars are just 12 weeks away from welcoming their baby, and they have opened up about that blissful moment when they learned Amber is pregnant.
The 23-year-old, who met and fell in love with her fiancé on the dating show Are You The One?, told Us Weekly: ‘The moment I found out I was pregnant could not have been more special and absurd than it was.
‘Ethan and I had just gotten back to my apartment in Texas after a 20-hour drive from Colorado, where we had been for the past month, just to find out that my electricity had been shut off! Long story short, around 2:00 a.m. on April 3, Ethan was out unloading a carful of luggage while I took a pregnancy test, in the dark, with the aid of a tiny lamp from Walmart.’
But everything changed once she discovered the happy news – and Amber admitted she didn’t even need to tell Ethan for him to know.
‘As soon as I put my arms around him and the tears started rolling down my face… he knew instantaneously. I don't know how he knew — I guess being new parents comes with lots of intuition, she said.
‘Regardless, no words had been exchanged yet, but he knew he was a father and I knew he was ready. I stood there with his arms around me for a good few minutes, just soaking in the special moment.’
Amber added: ‘As soon as I saw that little plus sign, I was overtaken with excitement. I had always imagined that moment to be gut-wrenching and terrifying, but instead I was hit with a surge of confidence and excitement.
‘I was huddled in a dark bathroom after a 20-hour drive with a pee stick and a lamp… but it all felt so right.’
Ethan also couldn’t have been more thrilled when he found out that he was going to become a parent.
‘It was the single most exciting and memorable moment of my life,’ he told Us. ‘I had always known I would be a father at some point, but hearing those words for the first time fills you with an indescribable love.
‘Nothing else matters, nothing compares, and I couldn't imagine myself being anywhere else. Many doors open, and some close, but the feeling of being a parent is something I hope everyone can experience.’
It’s not uncommon for a random celebrity or reality star to make a drive-by appearance on the The Real Housewives franchise.
Already this season on The Real Housewives of New Jersey, one Victoria Gotti appeared for an episode to drop a rumor bomb about one Housewife’s allegedly oversexed mother (don’t ask).
But a cameo on Sunday night’s episode took the bizarre cake. This week's episode revealed that Kevin Jonas was leading the construction on Housewife Kathy Wakile's new home.
It might seem like a stunt, but Jonas really does own a New Jersey contracting company.
His company, JonasWerner Fine Custom Homes (lol!), designs and builds large mansions in New Jersey.
basically his 15 minutes are long-dead and he needs to make money somehow since royalties don't pay the bills at home, lol!!!
A legal rep for Teresa says the star is not pregnant, as was reported by a magazine published weeks before she and her husband Joe are due to be sentenced for fraud charges.
"There is NO truth to the rumor that my client Teresa is pregnant," the reality star's legal crisis manager, Wendy Feldman, told E! News. "Further, the story that appears on the cover of In Touch is false in every way."
it's obvious hese ~rumors~ are possibly coming from Teresa's team in order to generate some type of sympathy before her sentencing this Thursday! It's not working you Planet of the Apes reject!
If you're a Real Housewives fan, you may recall our recent conversation about the distracting and creepy eyeliner Tamra Barney had on during her confessional footage on Real Housewives of Orange County..
Well it looks like that same makeup artist might have struck again, because Amber Marchese of Real Housewives of New Jersey is wearing the exact same crazy white eyeliner in her confessional interviews this season! I can't believe it.
smh, these 'women' overdo it with their makeup and the end result is them looking like sloppy. not to mention their tacky spray tans make them look like shit too.
Peggy Tanous was only a full-time star of The Real Housewives of Orange County for one season, but that doesn’t mean she hasn’t perfected her good ol’ cat-fighting skills. Homegirl has her nails sharpened and is ready to pounce — too bad Terry Dubrow is on the receiving end of her shade this time around.
Peggy opened up to RumorFix about what she thinks about Terry, and it’s clear she doesn’t like how he always seems to get caught up in the ladies’ drama.
“For Terry Dubrow to comment is comical to me,” Peggy tells the site. “He needs to stop trying to be a Housewife and stick to being a doctor.”
In short, Peggy went to see Dr. Terry for a boob job consultation but Terry was more interested in being on tv, even pitching a show starring Heather & her friends opening a restaurant but producers turned him down and asked him to have Heather audition for RHOC instead.
Expect fireworks in the upcoming season of the show.
They are already filming the next season of RHOBH even though it isn't airing right now. An insider for the show says that Eileen didn't try to get to know Kim at all. It sounds like she just passed judgment on her and then things have been downhill ever since then for these two. Reports are that Eileen is always rolling her eyes if she is working with Kim.
Soap Opera Network shared that Bravo thinks that this feud could end up being ratings gold.
Kim is a fucking wacko alcoholic druggie and should've been fired after season 1. she should be grateful that the only reason she's still there is because of Kyle's "If Kim goes then I go" contract clause.

For some people, apparently it's not enough to see Apple's iPhone 6 Plus abused on YouTube. They've got to experience mustering every last bit of their strength to bend Apple's 5.5-inch phablet firsthand. But unlike Unbox Therapy and Consumer Reports, who at least paid for the phones they broke or mutilated during stress tests, these people are going out and destroying Apple's property.
Meet Danny and Kylie, two 15-year-old boys who thought going to a local Apple Store and damaging brand new iPhones would make for a great laugh. It's 2014, so naturally they filmed the entire thing — even showing their own faces and referring to one another by name. The video was posted to YouTube, but it wasn't long before Danny and Kylie had second thoughts about their plan. Unfortunately, the internet never lets go so easily.
Danny and Kylie claim they asked one of Apple's retail workers whether or not the latest models could bend. The Apple Store employee apparently said it couldn't be done — likely referring to normal usage conditions— but the two boys immediately set out to prove him wrong. "It's not a rumor, it's true," Kylie said after the extremely illegal and unscientific test. "If we got caught, we'd end up paying for the phone, so we had to get out of there quite quick," said Kylie.
Just stopped in an AT&T store to try and bend a 6+. You have to be kidding me. That is not bendable. $AAPL— Walter Piecyk (@WaltBTIG) September 26, 2014
As The Daily Dot and Gizmodo have both reported, this idiocy isn't limited to kids.Business Insider just published a similar exercise in disregard for someone else's property. A Wall Street analyst recently tweeted about walking into AT&T and carrying out his own bend test. Presumably Walter Piecyk used far more caution and wasn't willing to destroy a perfectly good phone. Still, this isn't something anyone should be taking the liberty to try out on a device that isn't yet theirs to break. Do whatever you want once you've paid for it. We live in a society fascinated with seeing things dropped, bashed apart, and blended into toxic dust. It's a great way to draw YouTube clicks. Just listen to Kylie. "Leave a like up if you think this is quite funny." Hearing that line made my stomach turn. And then it only got worse.
They took bizarre joy in knowing these were Apple's phones being permanently ruined. "It was completely one of theirs, which is awesome to think," Kylie said. "The reason why we were laughing a lot of the time is just because it was really funny; we were in the Apple Store bending and breaking their iPhone." Presumably Apple and its lawyers don't think any of this is very awesome. We've reached out to the company asking if it's pursuing the two boys. If so, their parents likely won't find it too awesome, either.
"That's, like, criminal damage, I guess," was Kylie's astute observation as he wrapped up the video. "I don't even care to be honest, because it's Apple's fault."Except it's not. This is trolling in its most inconsiderate, selfish, and careless form. It's an act that not even the universal "kids will be kids" mantra can defend. Worse yet, Apple's staff might need to be on the lookout for copycats now. Hopefully it won't be a problem. Maybe the public example of Danny and Kylie will be enough to make would-be idiots reassess the situation.
Questions about this phone's long-term durability and whether or not there's a weak spot in its design are perfectly valid. But foolish stunts like this do absolutely nothing to help find real answers. That was never the point, and Kylie makes it abundantly clear. "Now if this gets really good feedback, I'd be more than happy to go back down there with Danny with a good camera and get really good, clear image of it."It's getting anything but good feedback. It's stirring anger and disgust — just as it should. And by pulling their video, even Danny and Kylie seemed to recognize that they'd crossed a line with their attempt to generate YouTube buzz. Maybe bending stuff should just be left to the experts.
Update 2:35PM EST:In a follow-up video, Kylie has apologized for the misguided act and says he takes full responsibility for the broken iPhone. He also clarified that they only damaged a single iPhone during the Apple Store trip; the multiple takes are reportedly of the same device. The article has been updated to reflect this.
Kylie says he and Danny are willing to pay to replace the damaged iPhone 6 Plus and don't plan to bend other units. "We know what we did was wrong." He also notes that it didn't take much pressure to bend the phone, but expresses doubt that it would bend while being carried in someone's pocket. Kylie does indeed sound genuinely remorseful about the whole situation, and says he hopes to be contacted by Apple directly to resolve it — if the company even decides to take things that far.
I know this will be tl;dr for many of you but that's just like, your opinion man. Also, get your SureJan.gifs ready for this post
On Monday, Walmart delivered its answer in a New Jersey federal court to 30 Rock actor Tracy Morgan's lawsuit arising from a six-car accident on the New Jersey Turnpike. Among nine affirmative defenses, Walmart says that injuries "were caused, in whole or in part, by plaintiffs' failure to properly wear an appropriate available seatbelt restraint device."
"By failing to exercise ordinary care in making use of available seatbelts, upon information and belief, plaintiffs acted unreasonably and in disregard of plaintiffs' own best interests," states Walmart's answer.
The defendant also asserts that plaintiffs are barred from recovering damages because they failed to mitigate their losses. Further, Walmart says its due process rights will be violated because the company "did not engage in any wanton or willful conduct that would warrant an award of punitive damages."
A nasty showdown erupted on the set of The View last Thursday when the show's moderator Whoopi Goldberg and co-host Rosie O'Donnell got into a heated spat in front of the studio audience.
Rosie was upset because Whoopi cut her off on a 'Hot Topic' subject that O'Donnell indicated she was passionate about backstage before the show. The segment ran out of time and Whoopi had to cut to a commercial, a show insider tells MailOnline exclusively.
The 'Hot Topic' was on spanking and the segment was running long, so producers told Whoopi it was time to go to commercial break in her ear. Rosie refuses to wear an ISD monitor in her ear so the control room is unable to speak to her.
Whoopi told her that if she had an ear monitor, she would have known what was going on. When Whoopi did the abrupt cut to commercial, when Rosie let loose, the insider said.
'Instead of talking to the crowd, Rosie spoke directly to Whoopi in the mic that she "hurt my feelings," and that she was "very upset by it" and "didn't appreciate" what Whoopi had done.'
Standing to the side without a microphone, Whoopi responded by saying: 'This isn't the time for this, Rosie.'
Instead of moving on, O'Donnell continued to gripe openly in front of the audience in the microphone about what she perceived as an on-air snub.
'Well I just don't appreciate you saying that you were going to do something and not doing it. It makes me upset and I just don't want to have to go through this,' O'Donnell continued.
Goldberg, looking annoyed, shot back: 'I said this was not the time Rosie.'
Not phased by the Oscar winner's petition to leave matters alone until after the show, the 52-year-old comedienne continued to vent about Whoopi's actions.
The View moderator then fired back to Rosie: 'F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don't want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie, I will dammit. I'm really sick of your s***!'
A hush fell over the studio.
New co-host Rosie Perez then jumped up and made light of the moment, ending the quiet that had fallen over the room.
'Oh s***, Twitter is going to be off the hook now,' Perez quipped, causing the crowd to laugh. 'They're about to get it,' she continued.
Producers hurried over to the two ladies with notes and information regarding the next segment and when the show returned live, it was as though nothing had gone wrong.
Relations between Rosie and Whoopi behind the scenes at The View have been tense since the beginning of the season, as sources believe that O'Donnell really wants to be in her old moderator role and is having a hard time playing second fiddle to Goldberg.
Additionally, Goldberg has begged ABC to terminate her contract with the network and pay her the remaining $10 million on her deal to go home, as she hates working on the show now, particularly with all of the changes.
'She has a definitive view of how she would like the show to go and wants everyone else to fall in line,' said a show insider.
When Rosie and new co-host Nicole Wallace did a test show with two fill-in hosts in an effort to build chemistry. Neither Rosie Perez or Whoopi were present.
Despite the fact that Whoopi is the regular moderator for the show, leading the discussion, Rosie took charge of the test show with Nicole.
'It was almost as though she was rehearsing for when she eventually takes over as moderator. It's clear that she would have preferred being in that capacity as she was before,' offered the source.
Time for another update in the divorce of Kris Jenner, star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. Apparently she didn't sign a prenup when she married estranged husband Bruce Jenner, who has been facing a wave of sex change rumors in 2014. But according to some rumors, Bruce wasn't really ready to breakup.
It's no secret that Bruce and Kris Jenner have been struggling with their relationship for quite some time. After all, the Kardashian matriarch announced back in October that the two had legally separated.
What does come as a surprise to many, however, is that the couple filed for divorce. Kris did a media blitz last year, where she repeatedly stated that she would not get a divorce from Bruce.
But it appears that she had a change of heart, as Kris officially filed for divorce on Monday of this week. Bruce submitted an identical filing on the same day, requesting joint custody of their underage child, Kylie Jenner (via LA Times):
"Bruce Jenner, 64, full name William Bruce Jenner, also cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split and asked for joint physical and legal custody of their youngest daughter, Kylie Jenner, 17, according to court documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times. Kylie turns 18 next August."
Bruce may have filed an identical statement, but that doesn't mean he's ready to move on as quickly as Kris. While Kris has been linked to a number of young men following their separation, there's no word as to who, if anyone, Bruce might be seeing.

The Oakland Raiders fired coach Dennis Allen on Monday night four games into his third season.
The decision was announced soon after the Raiders (0-4) returned from London, where they lost their 10th straight game dating to last season, 34-14 to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The firing was first reported by Fox Sports.
Allen was the first head coach hired by Oakland after the death of longtime owner Al Davis. His 8-28 record is the worst for the franchise since before Davis arrived in 1963. His contract was set to run through next season.
An announcement on the interim coach will come Tuesday, with offensive line coach Tony Sparano and offensive coordinator Greg Olson the most likely options.

AND THE PATRIOTS LOST
Brady was picked off twice by the opportunistic Chiefs, and Kansas City routed New England 41-14 to hand Bill Belichick one of his worst losses as coach of the Patriots.
Charles, who missed last week's win in Miami with a sprained ankle, ran for 92 yards and a score. The Pro Bowl running back also caught two short touchdown passes from Alex Smith, who had 248 yards passing and three touchdowns in a sharp performance before a raucous crowd.
Along with throwing two interceptions, one of which was returned for a touchdown, Brady was strip-sacked by Tamba Hali to step up a field goal. Brady finished 14 of 23 for 159 yards.

BILLS TO START KYLE ORTON
The Bills are making a quarterback change.
Bills second-year quarterback EJ Manuel was informed that the team will start veteran Kyle Orton in Sunday's matchup against the Lions.
"Kyle Orton is our starting QB right now. We need more overall production from that position," head coach Doug Marrone said, via the team's Twitter account. "We came in today, looked at the tape, and made a decision that gives us the best opportunity to win"

Luke Evans’ star has been on the ascent since his small but memorable role as Apollo in 2010’s Clash Of The Titans.
Last year saw him taking on the established ensemble in Fast & Furious 6 as the villainous megalomaniac Shaw, before playing Bard the Bowman in The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug.
Evans puts on the fangs as Prince Vlad in Dracula Untold, an origins story of sorts about how the world’s most famous vampire came to be.
“A lot of people were expecting another Dracula story ... but it’s very clearly not another Dracula story and that’s very important,” said Evans. “It’s about the human — the actual historical figure that Dracula was based on — who was as interesting as Dracula.
Evans said the evil character that everyone associates with Dracula was probably the result of thousands of years of loneliness and starvation and thirst for blood. “I don’t think we should assume he has always been that evil,” said Evans.
“There’s a transition in Dracula’s life from when he was a human to being a vampire to this very old vampire in the Bram Stoker book. It’s interesting to see that it isn’t black and white. There are flaws to a good guy and to a bad guy, and that’s why I like it.”
Its been getting negative reviews. Also they replaced Cox with Charles Dance as Caligula during reshoots and cut Samantha Barks as Baba Yaga, so by all means may this movie crash and burn
“Correct me if I’m wrong, is this the debutof Ben Affleck’s penis on the screen?” asks an MTV interviewer in a press junket for the upcoming film Gone Girl. (that nasty interviewer betta werk)
Ben starts off treading a bit of word water:
“I don’t know, I try to get it in every movie…[Director David Fincher] said to me from the beginning, “this is a ‘warts-and-all’ movie. You can’t have any vanity. You have to see the naked underbelly of this character. It’s got to be, like, in Europe they just don’t give a shit about any of that stuff, and they just play real people, you know? And so that was the spirit of the thing, and we kinda stuck to that.”
But realizing he’s veering, Ben steers himself back on track like a seasoned pro:
“The penis is in there! It costs extra — it’s IMAX penis. You’ve gotta pay fifteen bucks to see it in 3-D — it looks better in 3-D,” adding, “you should know it was a very cold set.”
Are y'all ready?
