The Fast and Furious 7 "won't be scrapped" following the tragic death of Paul Walker, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Sources tell THR that production is "delayed" and that the cast and crew were slated to return to Atlanta on Sunday, Dec. 1st. All plans for shooting scenes for the action-thriller flick are on hold "until Monday or Tuesday at the earliest." Filming was well underway for the big-budget film. Walker, who portrayed Brian O'Conner in the movie franchise, died in a car accident, along with driver Roger Rodas, on Saturday, Nov. 30th, in Valencia, California. Walker was 40 years old.
Ron Burgundy is telling you the news, for real. Will Ferrell anchored the KXMB evening newscast in Minot, North Dakota on Saturday. Sporting his trademark burgundy blazer and his familiar voice, he declared "I'm Ron Burgundy, thank you for joining us tonight" before launching seamlessly into the headlines.
But of course, the star of "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" veered away from the news and dropped some hysterical lines throughout the broadcast. "Burgundy" asked his co-host, "Amber, you look lovely tonight, are you married?" When she replied that she was single, he shot back, "Well, I am, so don't get any ideas!"
Hollywood could give thanks for its heroines this weekend as the women of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire and Frozen got the holiday season off to a bristling start. Fire topped the box office with $110.2 million over the five-day Thanksgiving weekend, according to studio estimates from box office trackers Rentrak. The impressive haul in Fire's second weekend marks the largest debut ever for a film over the Thanksgiving weekend, smashing the record of $82.4 million set by Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone in 2001. The $130 million Jennifer Lawrence sequel has collected $296.5 million since its release Nov. 22. The second-week performance also silenced analysts, some of whom suggested that last month's debut of $158 million was a disappointment.
Bradley Cooper was sans perm for a screening of his 70s-era drama American Hustle in LA. The actor was joined by the film's director, David O. Russell, as well as costars Amy Adams and Elisabeth Rohm — but it was Bradley's mother, Gloria Campano, that may have been his loveliest date of the night. This isn't the first time we've seen Bradley out on the town with his mom, as she accompanied her famous son at the Oscars in February, and Bradley also revealed earlier this year that he and Gloria moved in together after the death of his father in 2011.
