The week in which nothing much has transpired besides heartbreak, Dave Chappelle is going to host next week’s Saturday Night Live, Fox has renewed The Simpsons up to season 30, another Verhoeven classic is being remade sadly, Wanda continues its media purchases with Dick Clark Productions, Disney bests its box office records, and we come up with the Madea/SAW crossover for Lionsgate. Plus, AT&T is getting sued for collusion, The Flash continues its director woes, we question if Johnny Depp is in lazy mode, Sony is adapting Sonic for the big screen next, and I tiredly try to recite Best Picture winners.
