Harvey Weinstein Had a ‘Secret Hitlist’ of 91 Names to Prevent From Speaking Out About Him — Report
Harvey Weinstein’s career may be over, but the fallout from his scandal is just beginning. The disgraced former mogul’s story has become even stranger and more dispiriting with the Guardian‘s revelation of a what it calls “a secret hitlist of almost 100 prominent individuals targeted by Harvey Weinstein in an extraordinary attempt to discover what they knew about sexual misconduct claims against him and whether they were intending to go public.”

91 actors, publicists, producers, financiers and other members of the film industry populate said list, which was reportedly compiled so that Weinstein could formulate a plan to keep his accusers from making their claims public. It was not successful.

Rose McGowan is on the list, as are fellow accusers Laura Madden, Sophie Dix, and Annabella Sciorra; curiously, the Guardian points out, Brett Ratner’s name appears as well.

Warner Bros. Billed Ben Affleck for Stealing Batarang
Ben Affleck is having a rough time on the promotional tour for Justice League. All anybody wants to talk to the actor about is the Harvey Weinstein scandal, as well as Affleck's own personal experience with sexual misconduct. So, it should come as a welcome relief for the Batman star to end up in the news for something that doesn't involve sexual misconduct or starring in the upcoming standalone Batman movie. Instead, Affleck has been accused of stealing a batarang from the set and now Warner Bros. is billing him for the theft.

Stephen Colbert recently asked Ben Affleck if he got to keep any of the props he used on Justice League and as it turns out, Affleck jokingly said, "There was some other stuff that fell off the truck, like the batarangs and stuff." Apparently people noticed, and Affleck says he heard from the studio because of it.

Lena Dunham Defends ‘Girls’ Writer Accused of Rape, Claiming ‘Insider Knowledge’ of the Situation
Following yesterday’s accusation of rape against “Girls” writer/producer Murray Miller, Lena Dunham has rushed to her colleague’s defense. “I believe in a lot of things but the first tenet of my politics is to hold up the people who have held me up, who have filled my world with love,” she tweeted yesterday. Miller was accused of raping actress Aurora Perrineau in 2012, when she was 17 and he was 35. She filed a police report yesterday.

Dunham and “Girls” showrunner Jenni Konner issued a joint statement claiming that their “insider knowledge” of the situation makes them “confident that sadly this accusation is one of the 3 percent of assault cases that are misreported every year.”

Affleck Responds to McGowan, Weinstein and Harassment Joke Backlash
Ben Affleck is out promoting Justice League, but it seems that all of the interviews start with the Harvey Weinstein allegations before getting into talking about the new movie. Affleck worked closely with Weinstein at the very beginning of his career and went on to have great success, but claims that he did not know of the full extent of these allegations until recently, after the New Yorker and New York Times launched back-to-back stories of women coming forward and sharing the experiences of sexual assault and harassment at the hands of Harvey Weinstein. One of the loudest voices to come forward has been actress Rose McGowan, who claims that Weinstein raped her and that Ben Affleck knew about it.

While appearing on the Today Show, Ben Affleck answered questions and shared that his once good memories have been tainted by Harvey Weinstein's despicable actions. The actor said that

Stephen Colbert Confronts Ben Affleck on Sexual Misconduct Accusations, Harvey Weinstein
Stephen Colbert asked Ben Affleck about his past sexual misconduct – last month, the actor apologized for groping Hilarie Burton on camera in 2003 – and his reaction to the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault allegations on The Late Show on Thursday. Good Will Hunting, the film that launched Affleck to stardom, was released by Miramax, a company co-founded by Weinstein.

Quentin Tarantino and the Fate of ‘#9’: 6 Questions Studios Should Ask Before Signing Hollywood’s Hottest Free Agent
What studios are willing to bid to win the newest Tarantino movie is staggering: an upfront agreement to a $100 million production budget, first-dollar returns, and final cut. At a time when even $35 million for an original action film like “Baby Driver” is considered a gamble, this is unprecedented.

The reason is self evident: What Tarantino can do is otherwise missing from American filmmaking. He only directs his own scripts and has never made a sequel, but his films are global events. Tarantino remains one of the only directors whose original films can rake in two-to-one foreign-to-domestic box office returns.

Rose McGowan Arrested on Drug Charges, Will Plead Not Guilty
Rose McGowan has turned herself in and was arrested on a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance in Virginia. The felony charge stems from what prosecutors say was cocaine found amongst McGowan's personal belongings left behind on a Jan. 20th, 2017 flight to Washington Dulles International Airport in Virginia.

Gloria Allred on Latest Harvey Weinstein Suit: ‘It Won’t Be the Last’
Attorney Gloria Allred has promised that she’s going to continue pursuing justice for victims of sexual harassment.

Allred made the pledge Tuesday night at SAG-aftra’s national headquarters during a panel on sexual harassment and abuse, a few hours after filing a lawsuit against disgraced mogul Harvey Weinstein in which an unnamed actress alleged Weinstein raped her at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills, Calif. last year. The actress, identified in the suit only as Jane Doe, claims Weinstein also masturbated in front of her without her consent during an earlier meeting at the same hotel.

The lawyer, who has represented several Weinstein accusers, including Heather Kerr, Louisette Geiss, and Mimi Haleyi, said the suit “won’t be the last.”

Allred explained to an audience of about 200 SAG-aftra members at the James Cagney room that accusers do not have to go public in order to to file such lawsuits.
