Phoebe Waller-Bridge won’t be reuniting with her “Solo : A Star Wars Story” co-star Donald Glover on Amazon’s small-screen adaptation of the film “Mr & Mrs Smith”. The “Fleabag” star left over creative differences with co-star, co-creator, and exec producer Glover. [More…]


David Chase and Terrence Winter are keen to do a follow-up to next month’s “The Many Saints of Newark”. Says Chase, “That would be interesting to do, and there’s a lot of stories that exist already because of the mythology, and working with Terry would be great. He and I in that world again, I think we’d have a good time. I wouldn’t do it on my own, and I would not do it with anybody else. If Warners wanted it, they own it, they can do whatever they want.” Adds Winter, “David and I have kicked around just how many stories there are that precede the TV series, and the idea of doing a sequel, if it comes to that, would be really great fun. And also the chance to work again with David, a dear friend and mentor. Just from that standpoint, it would be fantastic.” [More….]
