Dear Gossips,

Deadline reported exclusively yesterday that Warner Bros and Bradley Cooper are working on a deal for him to direct the third (or is it fourth?) remake of A Star Is Born. Warner Bros has a short list of favourite actors: Leonardo DiCaprio, Ryan Gosling, Tom Hardy, Ben Affleck. Right now, off the success of American Sniper, Cooper’s looking a lot like an Affleck contemporary. He’s arguably a better actor. And Clint Eastwood loves him. Eastwood was supposed to take on A Star Is Born. Obviously Cooper has his blessing.

In addition to directing though, if negotiations don’t fall through, Cooper would work on the screenplay and star in the film as well.  Read Full Intro

I used to hate Vin Diesel. There were rumours about how he behaved on set, how he treated people. Then, he kinda went gossip quiet. And after that he started showing me his dance and lip-synch on line to Rihanna and Beyonce and Katy Perry. Even Sarah didn’t hate it when he proudly played a tree in Guardians Of The Galaxy. Full Story

Sarah also pointed out that the same language was used when Evans was sort of casually dealing with Sandra Bullock. Full Story

Duana’s (snarky screenwriter) take Oh NO, you guys, terrible news! It seems that Hollywood has gotten a clue, based on how Shondaland kills everything in its path on Thursday nights, how well Jane The Virgin has done, and how Empire has JUGGERNAUTED its way through season one. Hollywood has decided that this pilot season, they should be looking for diversity. Full Story

Sarah’s (snarky blogger) take Yesterday evening an article by Nellie Andreeva was posted on the industry trade website Deadline—formerly the bastion of hard-edged news harpy Nikki Finke—positing that the current pilot season is shaping up to be the most diverse in recent memory, maybe ever, with more roles opening up to “ethnic actors” following the success of shows like Empire, Scandal, How to Get Away with Murder, and Black-ish. Full Story

Amal Clooney stepped out for dinner in New York wearing a furry vest and a pair of very expressive pants. I love that she loves fashion. And there’s a little “I don’t give a sh-t” about the way she loves fashion too. She’d know that these trousers aren’t a safe choice. Full Story
