Learning to harness their newfound abilities and balance normal lives with it, the three embark on a never-ending adventure of witchcraft, ghosts, ghouls and demon hunting to protect innocents.

Antonio Brown Accused of Rape by Former Trainer

  • The Wrap
New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown was accused of sexually assaulting his former trainer, Britney Taylor, in a federal lawsuit filed Tuesday in the Southern District of Florida. In a statement through his attorney, Brown denied the accusations.

In the suit, Taylor says Brown assaulted Taylor on three occasions — twice in June 2017 and once in May 2018, while she was working with him as a trainer.

In the first incident, Taylor said Brown exposed himself and kissed her without her consent. In the second incident, Taylor said Brown masturbated behind her back and ejaculated on her. Taylor said Brown bragged about the second incident in a text message, after which she told Brown’s personal Chef that she intended to quit. According to the suit, she then received another text from Brown in which he fired her and insulted her. Taylor said she preserved both text messages; images of the

New Book On Weinstein Scandal Reveals Details Of Planned Smear Campaign Against Accusers; Lisa Bloom Apologizes Again For Repping Mogul

New Book On Weinstein Scandal Reveals Details Of Planned Smear Campaign Against Accusers; Lisa Bloom Apologizes Again For Repping Mogul
In years past, this is about the time at the Toronto Film Festival when dealmaker Harvey Weinstein would be making his mark. As this year’s festival enters the back nine, the disgraced mogul continues to make headlines for all the wrong reasons.

She Said, the new book about the Weinstein scandal by New York Times journalists Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey, claims that prominent civil rights lawyer Lisa Bloom told the disgraced mogul in 2016 she could discredit his accusers and make him a “hero.”

The New York Times published extracts from the book Sunday including an alleged memo from Bloom with an action plan to boost Weinstein’s tarnished image. The “counter-ops” strategy included placing articles portraying actor and Weinstein accuser Rose McGowan as a “pathological liar,” a Weinstein foundation “on gender equality” and a “reputation management company” to suppress negative articles on Google.

Bloom said in the memo,

Bob Weinstein Confronted Harvey Over ‘Misbehavior’ 2 Years Before Scandal Broke
Two years before the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment scandal broke in 2017, his brother, Bob Weinstein, confronted him about his many years of “misbehavior,” according to a 2015 letter published in New York Times reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey’s new book “She Said: Breaking the Sexual Harassment Story That Helped Ignite a Movement.”

“You have brought shame to the family and your company through your misbehavior,” Bob Weinstein wrote in the letter, which appeared in a Times story Sunday ahead of the book’s publication. “Your reaction was once more to blame the victims, or to minimize the misbehavior in various ways. If you think nothing is wrong with your misbehavior so in this area then announce it to your wife and family.”

Bob Weinstein, who provided the letter and sat for interviews for the book, told the reporters he initially thought of Harvey suffered from sex addiction and sympathized

Rose McGowan Wants Lisa Bloom Disbarred

  • Variety
“She Said,” Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey’s account of reporting their New York Times investigation of Harvey Weinstein that helped reignite the #MeToo movement, will be published on Tuesday — but a story about the book in the New York Times on Sunday has already set off a firestorm on the internet.

In an interview with Variety, Rose McGowan said that the revelations about her from the news story were “deeply wounding.”

The story, by Alexandra Alter, revealed previously unreported details about how the orginal Weinstein investigation was sourced, and included the duplicitous ways the famous executive and his representatives tried to kill it.

Some of the most shocking instances involve a plan to smear McGowan, who has alleged that Weinstein raped her at the 1997 Sundance Film Festival, and who received a $100,000 settlement from him afterward.

McGowan, an activist and firebrand, was one of Weinstein’s first public accusers.

Rose McGowan: ‘Lisa Bloom Should Be Disbarred’ for Working With Harvey Weinstein
Actress and sexual abuse activist Rose McGowan has called for civil rights attorney Lisa Bloom to be disbarred after a new book outlined how Bloom worked with Harvey Weinstein to discredit McGowan’s sexual assault accusations against him.

McGowan was responding Sunday to a Twitter thread posted by journalist Yashar Ali that summarized Jodi Kantor and Megan Twohey’s new book, “She Said.” The book cites a December 2016 memo to Weinstein in which Bloom offered to “help you against the Roses of the world, because I have represented so many of them.”

‘Jawline’ Film Review: Social-Media Influence Gets Tough But Compassionate Exploration in New Doc
For anyone over a certain age, the job of social media influencer exists purely in quotation marks, and anyone aspiring to be one is contemptible at best. But the new documentary “Jawline” offers a surprisingly compassionate look not just at one rural Tennessee kid’s bid for virtual stardom, but also at the digital celebrity-industrial complex that perpetuates itself by dehumanizing people into content-generating commodities.

Tracing delicate lines back to the heartthrob mall tours of the 1980s, director Liza Mandelup unobtrusively follows her subject, Kingsport, Tenn., native Austyn Tester, as he stakes his claim in the online space. Using platforms like Instagram and YouCast to interact with fans, Tester’s irrepressible enthusiasm and fresh-scrubbed sincerity comes across immediately, making him an ideal focus for the film — particularly given the skepticism and outright distaste many have for this growing community.

But what the film quickly reveals is that despite these technological advances,

Schwarzenegger Talks King Conan Script with Original Director John Milius
Arnold Schwarzenegger recently reunited with Conan the Barbarian director John Milius, and the two apparently spoke about the next potential movie King Conan. In a new image posted on Instagram, Schwarzenegger is shown frollicking with Milius at Silicon Valley Comic-Con. "Yes, I talked to him about his King Conan script," the actor says in the caption, apparently knowing fans were definitely going to ask. Of course, Schwarzenegger stops short of revealing anything about the script or the status of its potential to see the light of day, but the photo does keep the hope alive that we'll one day get the proper Conan sequel fans of the franchise deserve.

The relationship between Arnold Schwarzenegger and John Milius dates all the way back to the early '80s. It was certainly Schwarzenegger's breakout role as the titular warrior in Conan the Barbarian in 1982, which Milius had directed and co-written with Oliver Stone.

How Two Indie Producers and a Former Wells Fargo Employee Allegedly Scammed Investors for Millions

How Two Indie Producers and a Former Wells Fargo Employee Allegedly Scammed Investors for Millions
Two executive producers, whose credits include the 2018 Sundance hit “The Tale,” are facing federal fraud and money laundering charges for allegedly running a scheme to bilk millions from investors who thought they were backing independent film projects. According to their indictment, the men instead used the money to spend lavishly on themselves: luxury cars, private air travel, real estate, and more.

Jason Van Eman, who heads the Oklahoma-based WeatherVane Prods., and producer Ben McConley allegedly teamed with a former Miami-based Wells Fargo Bank employee, Benjamin Rafael, who helped pull off the scam.

According to the indictment, McConley and Van Eman lured potential investors with the promise of “matching” their investments dollar for dollar, which they claimed to use to secure a loan to pay for the film’s production. The victim would transfer money to accounts controlled by the men, which they would use for their own purposes. Rafael would

Red Sonja director Jill Soloway compares the reboot to The Dark Knight and Deadpool

Having dispensed with the services of Bryan Singer following the latest wave of sexual misconduct allegations surrounding the filmmaker, Millennium Films tapped Jill Soloway to bring its long-gestating Red Sonja movie reboot to life.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the Transparent creator has discussed her hopes for the fantasy film, describing Red Sonja as “a very different kind of superhero” and comparing her take to The Dark Knight and Deadpool.

“I can really have so much fun with Red Sonja,” said Soloway. “I see her a little bit more like the first kind of bad girl superhero. Sort of like the Batman of The Dark Knight or Deadpool, you know? The world is changing so much right now for superheroes, that I just really look forward to not only going to the edge of what I’ve ever written and directed before, but to the edge of the genre as well.

Harvey Weinstein Swaps Lawyers for a Second Time

Harvey Weinstein Swaps Lawyers for a Second Time
Harvey Weinstein appeared in a Manhattan courtroom on Thursday morning to switch his legal team just two months before he’s expected to stand trial.

The one-time powerful movie mogul was charged in May 2018 for rape and sexual assault. Since then, he’s changed his legal team twice.

His new defense attorneys, Damon Cheronis and Donna Rotunno, stepped in to replace Ronald Sullivan and Jose Baez, who on Thursday asked to be excused from the case. The two lawyers reportedly decided to part ways with Weinstein after facing pressure from the public and not getting along with their client.

Weinstein didn’t say much at the hearing. But he smiled and said “hi” to an attendee as he made his way to his seat.

In January, Weinstein’s original lawyer left his team, leading to a delay in the trial to May 2019, which was then delayed again to a new

Rose McGowan: 'I miss performing. My career was stolen'

Her revelations about Harvey Weinstein sparked #MeToo. Now, as the disgraced mogul’s trial approaches, the actor is back with an Edinburgh show

Sometimes Rose McGowan can say his name, and sometimes she chooses not to. In her memoir, Brave, published last year, he is known only as “the Monster”, his face likened to a melted pineapple. Interviewed by the Irish Times a few months ago, she refused to discuss him at all. Now, perched by the fountains on the Barbican estate in London on a warm spring afternoon, she refers to him at first as “the bad guy in my life”. When she goes on to mention him by name, it is with a casualness that makes me wonder if I’ve misheard her. “Some days it’s a bullet and other times I can handle it,” she says. “It depends how much of an onslaught I’ve gotten so far that day.

Red Sonja Gets Transparent Creator Jill Soloway to Direct

  • MovieWeb
Red Sonja is back on track after initially being put on hold. Jill Soloway has signed on to write and direct the long awaited project after Millennium Films decided to cut ties with Bryan Singer. When the project was first announced, many were shocked to see Singer's name attached after the Atlantic published an investigative report alleging the director had sexually assaulted multiple young men when they were underage over the past 20 years. Millennium Films CEO Avi Lerner at the time stuck by Singer and called the report "fake news."

Jill Soloway is now on board to helm the project. Red Sonja has been in development for over a decade now with a variety of different names attached over the years. Robert Rodriguez was on board at one time with then-girlfriend Rose McGowan intended to star. However, it later fell apart. Bringing Soloway to the team seems like a wise

Red Sonja movie finds a new director in Transparent’s Jill Soloway

After dispensing with the services of Bryan Singer back in March (despite having originally stated it would stand by the filmmaker in the wake of his latest sexual abuse allegations), Millennium Films has now found a new director for its long-planned Red Sonja movie.

THR is reporting that Emmy-winning Transparent creator Jill Soloway has signed on to write and direct the fantasy reboot, which has been in the works since way back in 2008 and was originally going to be helmed by Robert Rodriguez, with his then girlfriend Rose McGowan in the title role.

Loosely based upon Conan creator Robert E. Howard’s Red Sonya of Rogantino, Red Sonja made her debut in Marvel ComicsConan the Barbarian #23 back in 1973, with Brigitte Nielsen then bringing the sword-and-sorcery heroine to the big screen in 1985.

Red Sonja Moves Forward With Transparent Creator Jill Soloway Replacing Bryan Singer as Director

It looks like Millennium Films’ feature film adaptation of Red Sonja is back on track. The production company has hired the creator of Amazon’sTransparent, Jill Soloway, to write and direct the film. She will replace Bryan Singer who was fired after several serious sexual misconduct allegations were made against him.

I never thought that Singer was the right filmmaking to take on Red Sonja, but I have no idea if Soloway is the right person to take it on either. I’m not really familiar with any of her recent work, but I liked what she did on Six Feet Under. So, I guess we’ll have to wait and see how she handles the character and story.

When talking about Soloway being hired, THR says, “Hiring Soloway is in some ways a coup for the project, whose character sometimes found herself in the trappings of adolescent fantasy clichés
