    Vivica A. Fox Wants Quentin Tarantino to Cast Zendaya as Her Daughter in a ‘Kill Bill’ Sequel

    It’s been 17 years since Quentin Tarantino’s seminal — and bloody — “Kill Bill: Vol. 1,” which may be enough time to tap into a potential sequel the film set up in 2003 — at least Vivica A. Fox thinks so. And she’s already got a few ideas up her sleeve.In the film, Fox plays Vernita Green (codename Copperhead), who ends up on the sharp end of a knife throw from Uma Thurman’s Beatrix Kiddo. Vernita’s daughter walks in as she dies, and Kiddo says to the little girl: “When you grow up, if you still feel raw about it, I’ll be waiting.”Well, Fox told NME Magazine she thinks Zendaya would be the perfect actor to play the daughter.“How hot would that be? And that would probably green light this project. Because her and Uma are both very tall, and it would just be kick-butt, and I love her,” Fox said during the interview. “Hopefully now we can put that out, like, ‘Tarantino, cast Zendaya!’ And spark his interest to put it on the fast track. Wouldn’t it be amazing?”Tarantino has teased the possibility of a third film for years. The first two made a combined $335 million at the worldwide box office. In May, Fox told The Hollywood Reporter that Tarantino and Thurman have recently been in talks to make something happen.Zendaya has become one of the most sought-after young actresses in Hollywood, with performances in Sony’s new “Spider-Man” franchise, as well as HBO’s “Euphoria.”Also Read: Zendaya Shares Steamy Still From Movie Shot in Quarantine With John David WashingtonLast week, she shared a black and white still from a movie that both she and “BlacKkKlansman” star John David Washington filmed while under coronavirus lockdown called “Malcolm & Marie.”Zendaya didn’t share any details about the film’s story, but Deadline noted that the film resembles “Marriage Story” in its themes.Levinson wrote the first draft of the script for “Malcolm & Marie” in just six days in March after production on “Euphoria” was shut down. They then filmed and completed production on the movie at the Caterpillar House in Carmel, California, a massive home on a vast, open estate.The actress will also star in Denis Villeneuve’s much-anticipated upcoming adaptation of Frank Herbert’s science fiction novel, “Dune,” starring Timothee Chalamet.Read original story Vivica A.

    Is ‘Greyhound’ Based on a True Story?

    (This article does NOT contain any spoilers for the Apple TV+ film “Greyhound” starring Tom Hanks)Even 75 years after the end of World War II, the subgenre of films about that global conflict is going strong. And even with movie theaters closed for months, we’ve got a new one on our hands now thanks to Apple TV+, which debuted the Tom Hanks naval thriller “Greyhound” this week.Hanks’s character, Captain Krause, is a longtime Navy officer, but he’s taking part in war for the first time in the wake of Pearl Harbor. His job: escort a convoy of supply ships across the Atlantic Ocean and defend them from Nazi U-boats if necessary.It is necessary, of course. Otherwise, “Greyhound” would be a pretty boring movie. But is this story something that actually happened? Was Captain Krause real?“Greyhound” is actually based on a 1955 novel called “The Good Shepherd” by C.S. Forester. And no, it is not a true story. The novel, and film, are a fictional yarn about a non-fictional scenario. What you see in the film is the type of situation that many ships and convoys faced as the U.S. and Canada shipped supplies to Great Britain throughout the war. But these specific characters and ships did not exist.Also Read: 'Greyhound' Film Review: Tom Hanks Battles Nazi Submarines in Old-Fashioned War MovieIn a sense, “Greyhound” is sort of a fictionalized summation of the Battle of the Atlantic, which is the catch-all name for all the fighting that took place in the Atlantic Ocean during World War II. From the very beginning of the war, Britain received supplies from North America, with the U.S.A. chipping in even before it officially joined the war when the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.The journey across the Atlantic for these ships was a fraught one, with German U-boats often swarming these supply convoys in the portion of the Atlantic known as the “Black Pit” — that’s the part of the ocean that was beyond the reach of British air forces. This is, to be clear, most of the ocean, though U-boats could only travel so far themselves.Those U-boats took out thousands of ships during the war, so they were a very real threat to any convoy making the Atlantic crossing.Also Read: Tom Hanks Says 'Shame on You' to People Who Refuse to Help Prevent the Spread of COVID-19In the novel, though fictional, Forester was essentially creating an ideal scenario that described what it was like for Allied sailors during the Battle of the Atlantic. And the film is a very clinical adaptation, focusing almost entirely on how the crew of the Greyhound deal with the moment-to-moment action as they face off against a squadron of U-boats.Basically, it’s not a literally true story, but the broad strokes certainly played out over and over during World War II.“Greyhound,” which is an Apple TV+ exclusive from Sony Pictures, was directed by Aaron Schneider and was actually written by Tom Hanks. In addition to Hanks, the film stars Rob Morgan and Stephen Graham. It hits Apple’s streaming service on July 10.Read original story Is ‘Greyhound’ Based on a True Story? At TheWrap

    Naya Rivera Update: Ventura Sheriff’s Department Shares Video of Low Visibility in Lake

    As the search for former “Glee” actress Naya Rivera continued late into Friday, the Ventura County Sheriff’s Office updated the public with details of the operation including two video clips, one demonstrating the extremely low underwater visibility of Lake Piru affecting the search, and another showing the equipment being used.The first clip showed one of the remotely operated underwater vehicles being used to locate signs of Rivera, a floating drone with cameras on it, connected to a boat via a cable, which according to the department is being used in addition to “side scan sonar, dogs and divers.”The second clip demonstrates how the drones are operated via a handheld controller connected to a computer, with footage displayed on an attached screen. As the drone footage shows, at a depth of 30 feet the lake is extremely muddy and objects can only be identified with clarity very close to the camera.
