Diversity Is A Sticking Point In “American Idol” Judge Search-
Word is Luke Bryan has signed on to be the second judge on the American Idol reboot. Variety reports the country star will join Katy Perry....One more judge is expected to be added before auditions begin next week. BUT it sounds like there is disagreement between the producers and ABC. It starts with the judges. Freemantle, the production company, wants to hire Charlie Puth as the final panelist, but ABC says the three must be diverse and their choices were Lionel Richie and mega manager Troy Carter.
With filming of the judges segments almost here, this is becoming a tense game of chicken.
“It” Smashes A U.S. Record-
The Stephen King tale of a child eating clown in now number one in another way.
“It” is the highest grossing horror movie in U.S. history. It overtook the 1973 classic “The Exorcist” over the weekend. It comes with “asterisks” though. Globally, the ‘73 classic is still number one and if you adjust for the difference in ticket prices, that movie also beats “It.”
The Stephen King reboot only cost 35-million bucks to make, and considering its take is estimated to be 313-million at the end the movie’s run, that is pretty good!
