‘Bad Boys 3’ Might Be A Thing That’s Happening Soon
BB3 – Sony Pictures has been building up its franchises quickly, and now I’m hearing that Bad Boys 3 is looking like a strong possibility to get going. Safe House scribe David Guggenheim wrote a strong draft that now has Joe Carnahan in early talks to do a quick pass to possibly direct. I’m hearing this is all moving quickly as the studio wants to have the movie for Will Smith to consider as his next slot after Suicide Squad. Smith starred in the first two high-action films with Martin Lawrence in 1995 and 2003. which Michael Bay directed. Carnahan certainly has that combustible style that goes with the franchise. He most recently directed the superb thriller The Grey. Stay tuned.
I’m a lot biased because Bad Boys and Bad Boys 2 are two of my favorite movies (and I really wanted to do use this GIF again), but this is wonderfully fantastic news. Will Smith needs a big time movie and if Martin Lawrence is still alive we can throw him back in here too. The only misleading thing about this article is that they describe The Grey as a ‘superb thriller’. If I wanted to see Liam Neeson get eaten by wolves I’d create my own Broadway play titled ‘Liam Neeson Gets Eaten By Wolves’. Other than that, I hope this is true, and I hope Will Smith makes a gigantic comeback with possibly this and ‘Suicide Squad’. The world is a better place when Will Smith is in in good movies.
What’s the Smallest Amount of Money You Would Accept to Direct a Porno
(Source) “An adult film company is offering Miley Cyrus a million-dollar porn deal to get behind the camera and direct a XXX flick.
GameLink, an online adult store founded in 1993 that dubs itself one of the “leading international online retailers of adult entertainment,” wants Cyrus to direct a porn flick for a cool $1 million, according to TMZ. The company called her an “empowered” and “unapologetic” woman, who could use this opportunity to really show the world she’s “not a little girl anymore.”
In a letter sent to the singer’s camp Oct. 9 and obtained by TMZ, GameLink wrote: “We believe that as an empowered 21st century woman, you are the ideal choice to show the world your vision as an artist in the world of adult entertainment. GameLink would like to offer you the very lucrative opportunity to direct an adult film, giving you full creative control, for ONE MILLION dollars.”
Reps for GameLink and Cyrus were not immediately available for comment.
This isn’t even the first time the pop star has been offered a gig in the adult industry. Last year, after Cyrus filmed the music video for DJ Borgore’s “Decisions” featuring porn star Jessie Andrews, Sex.com offered to compensate her “extremely” well if she agreed to film a softcore girl-on-girl make-out session with Andrews.
She didn’t bite.
Whether Cyrus would actually take the most recent deal seems highly unlikely. She certainly doesn’t need the money and directing porn probably wouldn’t add to her artistic credibility.
Still, the “Wrecking Ball” singer does have a penchant for shocking people and she has some experience in the NSFW realm. Aside from her naked, sledgehammer-licking performance in the video for “Wrecking Ball”, Cyrus also posed for a series of risque photos for photographer Terry Richardson.”
This a million dollar question, pun intended. Obviously no sane person would pay a normy like me $1M to direct anything, nevermind a porno. I’m also not what you’d call a financially savvy human being, so I can’t put my artistic heart and soul into something for free. Directing a porno seems like a pretty ideal job with a lot of leeway. I’ve never watched a porn and said to myself “great editing job”. The lowest fee I’d accept would depend on a few things.
1. Who is in this porno? If it’s a lezbo porno, my price is dropping dramatically. If its not, and I have to stare at some guys dick all day, the price has to at least double. Are we talking mainstream porn stars, i.e. Tori Black, Melanie Rios, Tiffany Thompson, etc. or is this some awkward amateur shoot. These are the important questions.
2. Who is paying me? Is this a legit shoot with a solidified company such as Brazzers or Vivid? If so, my price is pretty low, because once they see my technique, they’ll be begging me to do more. If it’s a low on the totem pole type of company, I might be able to trick them into paying me more.
3. Now comes the most important question: am I allowed to choose my own porn name. I don’t care how much money a porn company is offering, if the opening credits don’t say “Directed by Bubba Hump” then I’m not your guy.
All things considered, I’d lowball myself at $100. I consider that stealing candy from an obese baby if I get to watch my favorite porn stars do their thing live and in living color.
P.S. If Miley accepts this their is no chance she doesn’t get involved on camera. You can only cage the beast for so long.
Childish Gambino – Clapping For The Wrong Reasons (Short Film)
“Featuring the likes of Chance The Rapper, Trinidad James, porn star Abella Anderson, Flying Lotus and Topanga (Danielle Fishel), we’re treated with another mysterious visual from Gambino. With a rumored project to be on the way, Donald lets loose this “Director’s Cut” of a whole bunch of different happenings. What’s this mysterious clip all about? I don’t have the answer, but one thing is for certain – Donald is a creator…” – Ootlyfe
Donald sure has been busy this summer. After announcing that he’ll be scaling down his role on the NBC comedy Community to focus on talks of creating his own show on FX, Glover a.k.a. Childish Gambino released this short film titled “Clapping For The Wrong Reasons”. It’s not entirely clear what the video is about, but it seems Glovers rapper alter ego may be releasing some new music very soon. While most of the visuals are cryptic, extended cameos by porn star Abella Anderson and Danielle Fishel (Topanga from Boy Meets World) make certain parts easy on the eyes. Glover is a rare two game player nowadays, and with all these rumored projects on the horizon, it seems the sky is truly the limit for him.

Netflix Must Watch: “Roman Polanski: Wanted And Desired”
It’s fascinating to think how huge certain stories would be if covered by the 21st century media. The same media that glorifies criminals and turns murder cases into spectacles would no doubt have a field day with the famed director. I couldn’t tell you if many people in my age bracket (20-25) have ever heard of Roman Polanski, but I can tell you I’ve never had a conversation about him with friends. Although his story is one of the most fascinating and disturbing in American film history, it seems as if his struggle has been put on the back burner in exchange for the constant updates on the Bieber’s and Lohan’s of the world. From the tragic murder of his wife, to the scandal that forced him to flee the United States, Wanted and Desired provides an in depth look at a star’s fall from grace. Do yourself a favor and block off 90 minutes of your time for Marina Zenovich’s documentary. You’ll be glad you did.
