Joker and Harley Movie Coming + Former CIA Agent Wants to Buy Twitter: Pop Bits
There's a new Harley Quinn and Joker movie in the works, and a former CIA agent wants to kick President 45 off Twitter by buying the company. These are this morning's Pop Bits.
Just a day after announcing Martin Scorsese and Todd Phillips were working on a Joker origin movie, Warner Bros. revealed it's also working on a new Joker and Harley Quinn spin-off. Unlike Phillips' project, which will supposedly stand on its own from the current DC Cinematic Universe, this new movie will have Jared Leto and Margot Robbie reprising their roles.
Valerie Plame Wilson, who at one time was an undercover agent in the CIA, set up a GoFundMe campaign in an effort to raise enough money to buy Twitter from its current ownership. She, like many others, is bothered by the fact that Twitter won't police itself when it comes to the current President as strongly as it does when it comes to other hate-inciting users. Best of luck.
The classic Michael Bay buddy cop series Bad Boys, which established both Will Smith and Martin Lawrence as actors capable of carrying a tentpole action flick at box office, has had two very successful entries so far. A third movie was reportedly in the works, which would have seen Lawrence and Smith teaming up to take down some crime in Miami once more, but now Lawrence isn't so sure it's going to happen. Whatcha gonna do?
Well, looks like it pays to be the woman behind the bench. Judy Sheindlin testified in court during a suit against CBS that the network isn't paying the proper profits to Rebel Entertainment Partners, the company that helped package Judge Judy for programming. Judge Judy said herself that CBS had no choice but to meet her salary demands, as she would just leave and make the show on her own if the network didn't. I guess that settles that.
The National Anthem has been a point of contention for the past year, with superstar athletes choosing to protest during the song during sports events, and other celebrities joining in on the action when they can. Quavo has a different proposition: to remake the song for all races and nationalities for 2017.
