EXCLUSIVE: In its second significant deal at Cannes, Radius-TWC acquired North American rights to Keanu Reeves’ directorial debut Man Of Tai Chi in a low seven-figure minimum guarantee. The film is set in modern Beijing and follows the spiritual journey of a young martial artist (Tiger Hu Chen) whose unparalleled Tai Chi skills land him in a highly lucrative underworld fight club. As the fights grow tougher, he must compromise his own beliefs in order to survive. This is the second deal for Radius, which on Saturday acquired the Directors Fornight film Blue Ruin. TWC-Radius also has the Nicolas Winding Refn-directed Only God Forgives playing here at Cannes, with Ryan Gosling and Kristin Scott Thomas starring. Reeves, who also stars in the film, met Chen during The Matrix, where Chen was a stuntman and a trainer for Reeves. It’s Chen’s first lead role, and the film also stars international action fixtures like The Raid’s Iko Uwais and Jeremy Marinas. Michael G. Cooney wrote the script and Man Of Tai Chi is a co-production between China Film Group, Wanda Media, Village Roadshow Pictures Asia and Universal Pictures. Lemore Syvan is the producer. Radius will release the film in the fourth quarter of 2013. Co-presidents Tom Quinn and Jason Janego confirmed the deal to Deadline, and issued this statement: “Keanu has done a terrific job with Man Of Tai Chi, which ... Read More »
And we're back with our Teen Mom Week in Review. That's your favorite part of Monday, is it not? And this week it's a juicy one, as we've got news to share on Maci's new gig, Leah's new tattoo, Kailyn's new baby bump, and some exciting stuff about Teen Mom 3! So let's begin because we are way too overwhelmed to keep this stuff to ourselves. OK! Exclusive: How Much Money is Farrah Abraham Worth? First things first, Kailyn Lowry. Even though she still hasn't confirmed her baby news to the press or her fans, it's pretty clear that she's pregnant, guys. Over the weekend, Kail celebrated her baby shower and this adorable pic of her friends kissing her baby bump hit the interwebs. Maybe the rumors that she's having a girl are true? She's wearing a pink maxi dress and a flower headband! But maybe that's just wishful thinking. Whatever. OK! News: Last Week's Teen Mom News Roundup Speaking of girls, Leah Messer, who's got three, has a new tattoo! Leah's Facebook fan page posted this pic of Leah's new ink, which is of her favorite quote said by her hubby, Jeremy Calvert. JEC are his initials! Cute or not so much? Maci Bookout has broken her silence on Farrah Abraham's sex tape. Finally! Even though she doesn't necessarily support Farrah's decision, she's happy that she's happy and blah blah blah. But, like Kail tweeted a few weeks ago, Maci is not happy that the video has "Teen Mom" in the title. She doesn't want to be associated with that, and we don't blame the girl. But in happier Maci news, she's got a new gig, ya'll! She hosted a few episodes of the Teen Mom 2 After Shows last season, and now, she'll be doing the same for the upcoming season of Teen Mom 3! Even though the news isn't technically official yet, Maci's been posting tweets and pics of her trip to NYC (like the below Instagram of her first class flight!) and Wetpaint is reporting that it's definitely true. This is major! And also major? Teen Mom 3 finally got a premiere date! Again, this hasn't officially been confirmed by MTV, but basically everyone on the internet is saying that the show is set to debut in August. This makes sense since the After Shows are filming in NYC with Maci this week, and the network usually needs a solid few months to edit all the footage. So, August it is! For now at least. But let's have a minute to discuss Jenelle Evans, shall we? Jenelle was due in court today to talk about the charges from Gary Head, but she showed up late. Could this mean jail for Jenelle again? Only her lawyer, Dustin Sullivan, can know for sure! We expect to see that interview with Dustin tomorrow...just sayin'. And lastly, just for giggles, here's Chelsea Houska, taking a gorg selfie in Aubree's room. How pretty! We kinda like her without the overload of leopard and with the major abundance of pink. OK! Exclusive: New MTV Star Offers Relationship Advice for Jenelle and Farrah What do you think was the most exciting Teen Mom news of the week? Anything major we missed?

EXCLUSIVE: Mike Newell’s Great Expectations starring Helena Bonham Carter, Ralph Fiennes, Robbie Coltrane, Jeremy Irvine and Holliday Grainger, and the William Forsythe-starring Jack LaMotta biopic The Bronx Bull will both be released stateside on October 11, 2013. The announcement was made in Cannes by Main Street Films chairman Craig Chang and are the first pics to come from the company’s distribution division. The specialized marketing and distribution company is financed by 982 Media. Great Expectations, based on the Dickens book, premiered at Toronto last year and was released in the UK in November. Bronx Bull co-stars Joe Mantegna, Penelope Ann Miller, Paul Sorvino and Cloris Leachman, with Martin Guigui directing. “Every independent film that is made represents a small miracle, and at MSF we want to honor the achievement of the filmmakers in not only getting their film made but my ensuring that it is seen by everyone it was made for”, Chang said in announcing the dates.
That's the word from Jeremy Pope, who spent nearly a decade at Rockstar Games before leaving to found his own mobile startup, Rally Games.
