James Woods Says He Was Dropped by ‘Liberal’ Talent Agent
James Woods needs new representation. The actor, an outspoken conservative, said via Twitter on Thursday that he was dropped by his talent agent on July 4th because of his political views.

Woods shared what he described as an email exchange with Gersh talent agent Ken Kaplan, who Woods called “a political liberal.” Woods posted a screenshot of Kaplan’s email, which reads, “It’s the 4th of July and I’m feeling patriotic. I don’t want to represent you anymore. I mean I could go on a rant but you know what I’d say.”

In a separate tweet, Woods shared his response, which says, “Dear Ken, I don’t actually. I was thinking if you’re feeling patriotic, you would appreciate free speech and one’s right to think as an individual. Be that as it may, I want to thank you for all your hard work and devotion on my behalf.

See ya later!

This year has seen a lot of celebrity breakups, from Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's public separation to Taylor Swift's split from Calvin Harris And Tom Hiddleston.

This year marked the end of Brangelina.

Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in September after two years of marriage and requested physical custody of their six children -- Maddox, Shiloh, Pax, Zahara, and twins Vivienne and Knox. Both parties, who began dating in 2005, listed Sept. 15, 2016 as their separation date, and cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their divorce.

Mallrats 2 is now a 10-episode TV series

Mallrats 2 - Aka Mallbrats - is no longer heading to cinemas. Instead, it'll be a 10-part TV show...

You may have seen this slice of news over the weekend, but it still seems worthy of discussion. Kevin Smith’s planned sequel to Mallrats is no longer destined for cinemas. Instead, it’ll be a ten episode TV series.

“We started reconfiguring the idea of doing Mallrats not as a film but as a series, and Universal and I are just about to close our deal to do Mallrats the series,” Smith revealed during an interview on Philadelphia’s Wmmr radio station.

He added: “Then we take it out into the world and find a home for it. So, instead of doing a Mallrats movie, I’m going to do 10 episodes of a Mallrats series.”

Smith headed to Twitter shortly afterwards to confirm the news, and also hinted that his directorial gig on The Flash season 2 played a part in this reconfiguration of Mallrats 2...

Thanks to @CW_TheFlash, I've started setting up shop in scripted TV! First up: #BuckarooBanzai. Next up, #Mallrats! https://t.co/G4Nc4GqcXl

— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) June 10, 2016

Apparently, Philadelphia’s Exton Square Mall is the planned location for the series’ shoot. First, though, Smith and Universal must find a network to sign up as the broadcaster.

Smith’s Mallrats 2 movie script was previously going by the title Mallbrats. We’ll have to wait and see if that’s still the title when the project reaches our telly screens.

In other Kevin Smith news, the writer-director has also expressed an interest in directing either Daredevil or The Defenders for Marvel Studios/Netflix.

We’ll keep you posted as Smith’s manifold projects continue to develop.

After directing a great episode of The Flash season 2, Kevin Smith wants to stick with The CW by writing for Arrow...

Kevin Smith’s episode of The Flash season 2 – episode 21, The Runaway Dinosaur – was one of the best of the season. As such, The CW has already snapped up Mr Smith to direct another The Flash instalment early on in season 3.

But Smith doesn’t want to stop there. He also wants to write for Arrow, the first superhero show in The CW’s shared universe, that has since spawned The Flash, Vixen and Legends Of Tomorrow.

Arrow star Stephen Amell said that getting Smith on board would be “a f*cking awesome idea” over on his Facebook page, and the Clerks writer-director responded on Twitter with this...

I wanna do 2 very Seven-ish @CW_Arrow ep's w/ #Onomatopoeia! I'd love to get my words in your mouth,

Let's try to cover everything we haven't mentioned lately (whew). The biggest and most obvious is that Sofia Coppola, whose plans to follow up Bling Ring with a live action Little Mermaid are no more, is now supposedly working on a remake of the Clint Eastwood romantic drama The Beguiled (1971). The film will star two darlings of Tfe Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst. Plus Elle Fanning so Coppola already sold all the tickets to our crowd. The Clint role is as yet uncast. They're said to be looking for a 'Chris Pratt' type but what this surely calls for is a watch of the original film to familiarize ourselves.

Let's do it together shall we? It's available on Amazon and iTunes so let's all watch it by April 8th or so and we'll discuss. Deal?

Jason Mewes talks ‘Bling’ and ‘Mallrats 2’

When was the last time you saw a movie about jewellery and robots? The answer to that unusual question is something Google Play are banking on for Bling, the first animated film to be distributed via the platform. Best of all it’s free!

Concerning the calamity that ensues when a hopeful man’s engagement surprise is mistakenly acquired by a supervillain, it features attention-grabbing elements such as positronic primate Kit, voiced by Jay and Silent Bob star Jason Mewes.

Putting on our best suit, and with our best inquiries boxed up and ready to be sprung, we took Mr Mewes to the nearest restaurant in the hope he’d accept our proposal. Along the way we couldn’t help but talk about his most famous role and working with friend and quietest Bob in history Kevin Smith for the past couple of decades…

What was your reaction when you were told about the concept?

Jason Mewes interview: Bling, Clerks III, MallBrats, superheroes

We spoke to actor and frequent Kevin Smith collaborator Jason Mewes about his new movies Bling, Yoga Hosers, MallBrats and Clerks III

Clerks is one of the movies that made me love movies, and so it was with more pre-interview nerves than usual that I waited on hold to connect with Jay actor Jason Mewes via a crackly international phone-line.

We were due to talk about the animated movie Bling - in which Mewes voices a robot monkey called Kit, who shirks his responsibilities as a theme park employee to help the main character (voiced by Taylor Kitsch) take down a super villain and propose to his girlfriend – but the memory of all the nights I’ve spent chuckling away to Jay and Silent Bob’s antics had put some serious fear into me.

I needn’t have worried, because Mewes proved to be a lovely chap to chat with,
