Sofia Coppola is making waves as rumors of “The Little Mermaid” surface. Brittany Murphy is back in the headlines four years after her death, while the music festival season heats up with talks of Lollapalooza headliners.
Sofia Coppola In Talks To Direct ’Little Mermaid’
The “Bling Ring” director is rumored to be leading a live-action version of the fairy-tale-turned-Disney classic. Caroline Thompson, who wrote “Edward Scissorhands,” is currently reworking the script. Can we fantasy cast before it’s even official? Elle Fanning as Ariel, Bill Murray as King Triton… Anjelica Huston as Ursula? Needless to say, we’re psyched.
Brittany Murphy’s Final Movie Released
Four years after her untimely death, Murphy’s last film is seeing the light of day. “Something Wicked,” an indie thriller in which Murphy plays a psychiatrist, will premiere April 4 in Eugene, Oregon, before expanding to other theaters around the Northwest and then, hopefully, nationwide.
Rumored Lollapalooza Headliners Include Eminem, Skrillex
The complete lineup won’t be announced until next week, but the Chicago Tribune is reporting Eminem, Skrillex, Kings of Leon and Arctic Monkeys as the Midwest festival’s headliners. It’ll be a return to Lolla for all of those artists. Tickets for the August 1-3 event go on sale Tuesday.
