'Little Shop Of Horrors' Remake

Bill Murray
In things no one asked for news, Warner Bros. is moving forward with a new incarnation of Little Shop of Horrors.

This one will be a fresh version of the 30-year-old film. That was based on a 1960's low budget movie about a clumsy young man who raises a plant, discovers it is carnivorous, and kills to keep it fed. According to Deadline, no casting as been set.

No word if any of the former stars will return for cameos. Wouldn't that be great to see Jack Nicholson, Bill Murray, Steve Martin, or even Rick Moranis again?

The new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer explains the upcoming Star Wars spinoff's backstory ... just a little bit. #ItsComplicated

Selena's Father Trying To Stop TV Series

Concert Crowd

For fans looking forward to watching Selena and Chris Perez's love story on TV, don't get too excited - her dad isn't happy.

Selena's father is suing Perez (her widower) to stop production according to E!. In a shocking moment of music history, Selena was murdered by her fan club president in 1995 when she was just 23.

In the lawsuit, Abraham Quintanilla Jr. says that, per an estate agreement entered into after Selena's murder, only Quintanilla Jr. holds the rights to "Entertainment Properties," a broad category that includes the use of Selena's name, voice, signature, and photographs. Basically, her widower should not profit from her image after death.

No word on who would play Selena but Jennifer Lopez has done several tributes to the late star and played her in the 1997 movie about her life.

Amy Schumer Slays Trolls

Amy Schumer
Amy Schumer has been hit with backlash since the trolling public heard that she'll be playing Barbie in a movie. Pay attention trolls - She doesn't care what you think.

Next to a picture of herself in a bathing suit, she wrote that it shouldn't really be called "fat shaming", because she knows she's not fat and has "zero shame."

"When I look in the mirror I know who I am," she continues. "[I'm] a great friend, sister, daughter and girlfriend. I'm a badass comic headlining arenas all over the world and making TV and movies and writing books." Read her Instagram response below.

Very very honored to be nominated for 2 Grammys and to be considered to play an important and evolving icon. Is it fat shaming if you know you're not fat and have zero shame in your game? I don't think so. I am strong and proud of how I live my life and say what I mean and fight for what I believe in and I have a blast doing it with the people I love. Where's the shame? It's not there. It's an illusion. When I look in the mirror I know who I am. Im a great friend, sister, daughter and girlfriend. I'm a badass comic headlining arenas all over the world and making tv and movies and writing books where I lay it all out there and I'm fearless like you can be. Thanks to everyone for the kind words and support and again my deepest sympathy goes out to the trolls who are in more pain than we will ever understand. I want to thank them for making it so evident that I am a great choice. It's that kind of response that let's you know something's wrong with our culture and we all need to work together to change it. Anyone who has ever been bullied or felt bad about yourself I am out there fighting for you, for us. And I want you to fight for yourself too! We need to laugh at the haters and sympathize with them. They can scream as loud as they want. We can't hear them because we are getting shit done. I am proud to lead by example. "I say if I'm beautiful, I say if I'm strong. You will not determine my story. I will" #thegirlwiththelowerbacktattoo

Instagram Finally Added The Features You've Been Asking For

Actress Laura Barriales using an iPhone
I'm a social media geek and love all the networks, but my dream is that we all settle on one network and give it all the features. Wouldn't that be easier?

Instagram became more like Facebook this week with some new features. Don't get excited about any breakthroughs - This is stuff they should have had all along.

You can now "Like" people's comments. You can also remove comments on a post if you want to. And finally, you can remove followers - In the past you had to actually block them.
