People Are LIVID Over The All-Female Lord Of The Flies Remake — Find Out Why!

Female-centric remakes are the newest Hollywood trend — and why shouldn't they be?

Audiences are craving female-driven stories and nostalgia these days, so combining the two seems like a guaranteed slam dunk. But not every male-driven classic works with the opposite gender... specifically, when the entire premise of a story revolves around boys being idiots because they're boys. That's what people are frantically trying to point out after Warner Bros. announced plans to remake Lord of the Flies -- but with young girls stranded on the island instead of boys! Related: Patty Jenkins Responds To James Cameron's Wonder Woman Slam! Those who read William Golding's 1954 novel (or even Sparknoted it) say the story wouldn't make sense with all girls because it was meant to show the pitfalls of toxic masculinity. Many critics mused that instead of turning into barbaric animals, a group of stranded girls would either peacefully work together or just leave each other the fuck alone. Adding fuel to the fire is the fact that the remake will be written and directed by two men, Scott McGehee and David Siegel -- which is hardly a sign we're in for the feminist coming-of-age film of the decade. What do you think, Perezious Bookworms? Can Lord of the Flies be successfully remade with a group of girls? See what people are saying and comment (below)!

Tom Sizemore Was Removed From Movie Set For Allegedly Molesting An 11-Year-Old Girl

We need to warn you in advance, this is one of the most disgusting stories we've heard over the past month, and that is truly saying something. According to a new investigation by The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Sizemore was kicked off of a movie set in 2003 for allegedly molesting an 11-year-old girl. Photos: Women Share Pics [...] We need to warn you in advance, this is one of the most disgusting stories we've heard over the past month, and that is truly saying something. According to a new investigation by The Hollywood Reporter, Tom Sizemore was kicked off of a movie set in 2003 for allegedly molesting an 11-year-old girl. Photos: Women Share Pics Of Themselves At The Age Of Roy Moore's Youngest Accuser! The actor was filming a movie called at the time Piggy Bank (later released as Born Killers, likely to draft off of the notoriety of Sizemore's role in Natural Born Killers), when a child actress told her mother Sizemore "put his finger inside her." THR spoke to a dozen witnesses from the film set to confirm the incident, which allegedly occurred during a still shoot, in which Sizemore, actress Robyn Adamson as his wife, and the girl playing his daughter were recreating family photographs. Adamson remembers the exact moment she saw something she couldn't explain at the time happen when the 11-year-old was seated on Sizemore's lap: "At one point her eyes got just huge, like she could've vomited. I was watching her. She soon reintegrated and kept going, although she had trouble taking direction. Later, when I was told about what happened, I knew exactly what it was." No one knew what had happened at the time. It wasn't until the next day that the actress' mother called casting director Catrine McGregor, who recalls the horrifying incident in detail: "The mother noticed that her daughter was unusually quiet and told her she was going to take her to this swimming place that was the little girl's favorite thing. When the girl put on her bathing suit, she told her mother that it reminded her of the day before, in an upsetting way — that the bathing suit's contact against her felt like what happened when the man had put his finger inside her." McGregor says she filed a report with SAG. Related: Supergirl's Melissa Benoist & Chyler Leigh Weigh In On Producer's Sexual Harassment Scandal Production assistant Roi Maufas says he remembers news of the horrific allegations spreading to the entire crew and how upset they all were: "The little girl said what she said and we all thought, 'That fucking sleazebag.' There was never any doubt. He was this guy who was already known for making inappropriate comments, being drunk, being high. We're talking about consistent behavior, just being 'Tom Sizemore' on set every day. Then this happens. Guys reached for hammers. [Producer James R. Rosenthal, who died in 2011], who was livid himself, had to stop a group of us from going to visit Mr. Sizemore to kick the guy's ass." Producers Jai Stefan, Michael Manshel, and Gus Spoliansky confirm they removed Sizemore from set immediately and reviewed the photos taken on the day but couldn't find any conclusive evidence of the crime. Stefan says he was emotionally distraught at the very idea it had happened: "I was like, 'Did that just happen on my watch?' I started crying." Without extra evidence to add, the producers say they told the actress' parents they should call the authorities; Manshel recalls: "They did talk to the police but didn't press charges. We also talked to Tom at the time, and told him everything that had been told to us, and he said: 'I've done a lot of awful things, and I'd never do anything with kids.' We considered whether we had some responsibility to him to not pass judgment on him." Production manager Cassidy Lunnen says "the girl was so young it was unclear to her and [later] her parents what had actually taken place and if it was intentional or not." Related: Sean Hannity Has Already Lost FIVE Sponsors As He Continues To Defend Roy Moore Against Molestation Accusation Spoliansky told THR they had no choice but to finish the film: "We had a fiduciary responsibility to complete the film so we decided to go about business as usual — lacking the evidence of what happened that day... We took the allegation extremely seriously and we were willing to do anything, including dismissing Tom. We just couldn't be police, judge and jury." And just like that, the whole thing went away. Sizemore even did reshoots for the film, which was eventually released with its new title. Sizemore was dropped by his manager and agent, but there's no direct evidence it was over the incident. Born Killers' second assistant director Jennie Latham recalls thinking of the incident when Sizemore was later sent to prison for assault and battery against his ex-girlfriend, the infamous "Hollywood Madam" Heidi Fleiss: "I remember being excited that he went to jail, even if it was for something else." It seems not for long enough. THR reached out to Sizemore, whose rep told them "No comment." The actress, now 26, said she is exploring legal action against both Sizemore and her parents.

It's being reported that 16-year-old pro surfer Zander Venezia died on Tuesday while catching the mega-swell waves in Barbados caused by Hurricane Irma. The Bridgetown, Barbados native was surfing a heavy break called "Box by Box" when he was knocked unconscious and drowned after getting caught by a closeout set that sent him into the shallow, rocky bottom where he hit his head on the reef. Related: Selena Quintanilla's Family Among the Victims of Hurricane Harvey Former Bajan pro-turned-surf instructor Alan Burke told Surfcide of the devastating accident: "I'm told that Zander get overturned by a closeout set, where he likely hit bottom. Nathan Florence got to him first, then shouted for the other guys and started to perform CPR. Zander was bleeding, and he wasn't moving. They tried to get him to the beach quickly, which was difficult. 'Box by Box' is a tough place to get in and out of, even if you have the ability. There's lots of big rocks around, and some stick out of the water. When they finally did get him in, they performed CPR on the beach. The ambulance came really swiftly from Speightstown, and the whole drive Nathan Florence, Dylan Graves and the paramedics continued to try and revive him. But once they got him to the hospital, Zander was breathing, but not responsive. From the time Nathan got to him in the water to when they arrived at the hospital, it was about 75 minutes of nonstop CPR." Alan added of Zander's likable and fun personality: "He was one of my sons' [Josh and Jacob Burke] best friends, and like a son to me. We just traveled the whole East Coast together, surfing that last Outer Banks swell together. Zander was such a good, funny kid. He was always joking, and he just loved surfing. He was so jovial, such a joy to be around. I just can't believe he's gone. I'm a mess, man. We're all a mess over here." Our deepest condolences go out to Zander's family and friends. Stay safe out there, everyone. [Image via Instagram.].....»»

A Tearful Eric Church Speaks On Las Vegas Shooting — "I Saw That Crowd … No Amount Of Bullets Can Take That Away"

By the end of the weekend, a domestic terrorist had opened fire on the same crowd of country fans who cheered for him just days before. During his performance at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville on Wednesday night, the Record Year singer spoke at length about the tragedy -- and noted there were two empty seats in the auditorium because two of his fans, Heather and Sonny Melton, were supposed to be in attendance. Sonny died on Sunday saving his wife's life. Related: Jason Aldean's Pregnant Wife Brittany Recalls Las Vegas Massacre Church recalled the energy that filled the Vegas Strip when he jumped down into the crowd during his set: "I shook everybody's hand and I thanked them for coming. I came back up the left side, saw smiling faces, hands in the air and pictures being taken … 48 hours later, those places where I stood was carnage." Tearing up, he went on: "Those are my people. Those are my fans ... The reason I'm here tonight is because of Heather Melton, and her husband Sonny who died, and every person that was there. And I'll tell you, I saw that crowd. I saw them with their hands in the hair, with boots in the air, and that moment in time was frozen, and there is no amount of bullets that can take that away." The 40-year-old also debuted a new song Why Not Me, which he was inspired to write after seeing Heather's interview on CNN about how big of an Eric Church fan her husband was -- and how they had tickets for the Opry that very night. You can watch his tribute and performance (below): [Image via WENN.].....»»

But if another archaeologist adventurer is going to take up the mantle and the nickname, why not a woman? Spielberg is down! He said: "We'd have to change the name from Jones to Joan. And there would be nothing wrong with that." Um... that's not how last names work. LOLz! Spielberg puts his money where his mouth is when it comes to feminism though, as he's used his power on his last two films, The Post and Ready Player One, to ensure pay equality between the male and female leads.

Reese Witherspoon Rooting For Female Flicks To Fail

Reese Witherspoon doesn’t want to bask in the bath of hypocritical BS most women in Hollywood would sacrifice their male counterpart’s career for. Female only by association Leslie Jones is probably legs spread underneath the figurative tub’s faucet almost at the point of orgasm over the ability to benefit as a victim while being in a blockbuster guaranteed hit. It’s like being able to play in the big leagues and no fan being allowed to call your performance bad when you strike out. Most female-led films are basically bowling with bumper guards but women still assume they’re the messiah of strikes like Jesus Quintana from The Big Lebowski. Those perfect scores from critics aren’t because everyone loves a Lena Dunham movie. It’s because most blogs are afraid of advertisers pulling out after the backlash of being labeled misogynistic, sexist, and an unsafe space on the internet. Hollywood has lowered the bar just so women don’t feel left out and Reese has had enough. Reese’s interview with Marie Claire magazine: “It shouldn’t just be about financial success. We should have as many opportunities to fail as we do succeed,” she told the magazine. “Because artistry is not about succeeding always. It’s about having the courage to try and put out into the world new ideas.” Witherspoon’s dream of female flopping is already here. Taraji P. Henson, playing the part of what would normally be a male assassin in the Proud Mary movie, is doing horribly in the box office and in the eyes of critics. Sometimes not being a hypocrite can hurt when reality hits. Reese’s public plea for critics to call out terrible female movies is commendable. It shows accountability. Now if that same attitude could only roll over into the MeToo movement Hollywood might be able to save itself from certain doom.

As you know, the longtime USA Gymnastics team doctor is facing sentencing this week after pleading guilty to molesting his patients under the guise of medical treatment. What a fucking monster. Related: Nassar Begs Judge To Stop Victim Impact Stories Thing is -- like survivors Aly Raisman and Emma Ann Miller so bravely pointed out -- institutions like USAG, MSU, and the United Stated Olympic Committee should also be held responsible for allowing Nassar to abuse these young women, unchecked, for so many years. There are cases dating back all the way to 1997 proving the organizations and individuals were aware of assault allegations. Nassar has "treated" HUNDREDS of more female athletes since then. SHAME. According to a statement posted by USA Gymnastics CEO Kerry Perry on Monday, Chairman Paul Parilla, vice-chairman Jay Binder, and treasurer Bitsy Kelley all tendered their resignations over the weekend. Perry's announcement reads: "We support their decisions to resign at this time. We believe this step will allow us to more effectively move forward in implementing change within our organization."

On Monday, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman announced that his office has launched a civil rights investigation into the independent film studio following the countless sexual misconduct claims that have been brought against Harvey Weinstein. Whoa. Related: Roman Polanski Accused Of Molesting A 10-Year-Old Girl In 1975 Per Mr. Schneiderman, his office has already issued a subpoena for all company records. The purpose of the investigation is to prove whether or not any of TWC's employees were subjected to pervasive harassment or discrimination at the NYC-based business. Oof. We have a feeling this probe will dig up more misconduct news. We mean, dozens of women have publicly accused the disgraced producer of either assault and/or harassment. Although Weinstein has admitted to acting poorly with his female peers, he has denied all allegations of nonconsensual sex. Still, Harvey's behavior was enough to get him fired from his company earlier this month. It'll be inneresting to see if TWC survives this latest hit. Stay tuned! [Image via WENN.].....»»

She expands her creative horizons as a first time director in The Female Brain. Adapted from Louann Brizendine’s bestselling book, The Female Brain centers on Julia (Cummings who co-wrote the flick with Neal Brennan), a neuroscientist who is studying the biochemistry of the female brain. Three couples (Cecily Strong and NBA star Blake Griffin, Sofia Vergara and Deon Cole, Lucy Punch and James Marsden) from the basis of her studies. Julia’s research takes a slight curve when a new subject (Toby Kebbell) takes part in her study. Cummings’ character is described as “straight-laced,” but hopefully her trademark humor will be infused throughout the narrative. If Julia doesn’t get a ton of the laughs, the deadpan humor of Griffin and scene stealing tendencies of Punch should do the trick. The trailer’s pretty amusing, check it out and tell us what you think! The Female Brain hits theaters and VOD on February 9.

I’m working hard to break free of stereotypes that the film industry has created and nurtured around women.” On equal pay and what she will no longer accept: “If I’m in a situation where I have equal experience to the actor and my role is just as significant, there is no reason why I should be paid less. It’s not really part of my world anymore, because I just won’t accept it.” On her mission to inspire young girls: “I believe that the energy you put into the world is what you get back, so I’m trying to put something positive out there, something to inspire girls and go into science, to run for office, to try to join the space program.” For more from Jessica, visit TownandCountryMag.com.

While smiling in disbelief, the Carolina Panthers quarterback responded: "It's funny to hear a female talk about routes. It's funny." Now, we don't need to tell you that journalist Jourdan Rodrigue is one of two beat writers assigned by The Charlotte Observer to specifically cover the Panthers, or that she's been studying football strategy for the past 10 years. Her sports knowledge does not need to be proven or defended. What's important here is that Newton saw and heard who was asking him a legitimate question, and immediately belittled her without hesitation. This is the world we're living in in 2017. Related: Justin Timberlake Reportedly 'Finalizing' Super Bowl Halftime Show Deal! After the sexist comment, the sportswriter approached Newton as he left the locker room for follow-up. He did not apologize. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy later told The Observer: "The comments are just plain wrong and disrespectful to the exceptional female reporters and all journalists who cover our league. They do not reflect the thinking of the league." As for Rodrigue, she had this to say: I don't think it's "funny" to be a female and talk about routes. I think it's my job. — Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) October 4, 2017 I spoke with him after and it was worse. I chose not to share, because I have an actual job to do today and one he will not keep me from. — Jourdan Rodrigue (@JourdanRodrigue) October 4, 2017 For those of you who don't see anything wrong with this, it's sexist comments like these that perpetuate biases against women on every level.

As we reported, Catt Sadler shocked fans when she announced she was leaving E! after learning cohost Jason Kennedy "was making double my salary and has been for several years." To add insult to injury, during negotiations, the network reportedly refused to give her equal pay. Sadly, not everyone is #TeamCatt in this drama. Related: Jennifer Lawrence & Jessica Chastain Support Catt Sadler! On Thursday, Kennedy's wife Lauren Scruggs wrote a lengthy post on Instagram defending her husband and the network against claims of sexism. The model reveals: "I believe in female empowerment and gender equality, but it's heartbreaking that a network is being deemed sexist when that is simply not true. At one time my husband had a female co-anchor on E! News who made 3 times his salary. Women are paid accordingly on this network, and the difference in his salary versus hers did not affect Jason. He knows there are always more components to consider when determining one's salary than gender alone." The fashion blogger then references an E! spokeswoman who told the New York Times that Sadler and Kennedy's roles were not comparable. According to Scruggs, Kennedy has been the permanent anchor of E! News for the past two years, while "a permanent co-host has never been named since the last one left 6 months ago." Even if there was an issue with "gender inequality," Scruggs says her husband would absolutely not stand for it. "If he ever heard that gender inequality was occurring at his workplace, he would take action. Instead, it's the contrary, and the numerous phone calls we have had these past two days from both current and former female employees at E! only support what he has seen in his time there. These women have assured us that they never felt gender inequality was at play at any time." Ultimately, the fashion journalist wants to clear Kennedy's name amid the mudslinging. "Jason is the most tender-hearted & respectful person and it's so sad to see him unfairly publicly shamed. His name has been dragged through the mud regarding nothing he did, except be a great friend & colleague. It absolutely breaks my heart to watch, & it is devastating & frustrating to see how this all played out. I will always stand on truth, & I cannot stand by and be silent when the foundation of a story that affects my family is not based on that. I am so proud of & inspired by my husband for constantly being prayerful, surrounding himself w/ wisdom, & being the definition of a class act even in unfortunate circumstances." It's important to note that Sadler has only said nice things about Kennedy, and even told her followers to stop "vilifying him" in a recent Instagram post. She wrote: "If I had one ask, it is to please not place blame on my friend Jason Kennedy. He has done right by me in every respect. It hurts me deeply to see that some are vilifying him. I repeat, his hands are tied on this matter and if you're angry - rightfully so - direct that emotion at the decision makers who failed us, not him." Read Lauren's full rant (below): I have always said that there are negatives and positives to social media, and these last 48 hours have proven that to be true. I believe in female empowerment and gender equality, but it’s heartbreaking that a network is being deemed sexist when that is simply not true. At one time my husband had a female co-anchor on E! News who made 3 times his salary. Women are paid accordingly on this network, and the difference in his salary versus hers did not affect Jason. He knows there are always more components to consider when determining one’s salary than gender alone. _ In a New York Times article yesterday, an E! spokeswoman confirmed quote "Ms. Sadler’s and Mr. Kennedy’s roles were not comparable." Since Jason was named the permanent anchor of E! News over two years ago, he has had various co-hosts that rotate throughout the week. A permanent co-host has never been named since the last one left 6 months ago. _ As you know, there are two sides to every story. I am posting this to tell the other side, which everyone deserves to know before jumping to conclusions about a place he has called home for the last twelve years. If he ever heard that gender inequality was occurring at his workplace, he would take action. Instead, it’s the contrary, and the numerous phone calls we have had these past two days from both current and former female employees at E! only support what he has seen in his time there. These women have assured us that they never felt gender inequality was at play at any time. _ Jason is the most tender-hearted & respectful person and it’s so sad to see him unfairly publicly shamed.

Love u, Jase, I am honored to be by your side.A post shared by Lauren Scruggs Kennedy (@laurenscruggs) on Dec 21, 2017 at 4:32pm PST [Image via Lauren Scruggs/Catt Sadler/Instagram.].....»»
