Will Ferrell And John C. Reilly Team For “Holmes & Watson” -
Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly are reuniting for a big screen comedy on Christmas Day. No, it isn’t a “Step Brothers” sequel..
Ferrell will be playing legendary British detective Sherlock Holmes and Reilly will play his partner Doctor Watson in the spoof Holmes & Watson. Ferrell and Reilly teamed up previously in the hit comedies Talladega Nights and Step Brothers. Ferrell is promising that Holmes & Watson will have some smart jokes, pure slapstick and jokes that will make you blush. Holmes & Watson opens Tuesday.
We know it’s hard to believe Will Ferrell taking on a period movie, but he’s got plenty to poke fun at. The movie was even shot in London.
“Pirates Of The Caribbean” Moves On Without Johnny Depp -
Johnny Depp will not be in the next “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie.
Disney's film production chief says he will not be reprising his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, who he has played since 2003, because the company wants to bring a new energy to the film franchise. The final Depp version tanked last year, with both to critics and audiences panning it.
Depp recently revealed in an interview with GQ that film producers used to hate the way he portrayed the character. The last Pirates movie he was in was 2017's “Dead Men Tell No Tales.”
The writers of “Deadpool” are crafting the new script and direction.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN: Assault Case Will Go On
Harvey Weinstein's bid to dismiss his sexual assault case has been rejected.
The disgraced producer will have to face trial on five felony sex crimes, including rape, after his lawyers requested that all charges be dropped.
His attorney Benjamin Brafman said, "We are obviously disappointed by the court's decision to deny our motion to dismiss the indictment. JudgeBurke has, however, ruled and we must accept his ruling. Nothing in the court's ruling, however, removes the flawed theory of this case... We are confident that Mr. Weinstein will be completely exonerated."
In October, the Manhattan D.A.'s Office dropped one of the charges against Weinstein after discovering one of the lead police detectives was guilty of witness tampering. (Yahoo! News)
