A Jolie-less Brad Pitt arrived at the Cannes Film Festival - drawing hordes of crazed fans. Pitt was there to promote his film, "Killing Them Softly," which is running in competition for the festival's top prize. Pitt took a little time at a news conference to address personal questions - saying that he and Angelina Jolie have not set a date for their wedding yet, and any stories to the contrary are merely rumors.

Tom Cruise has reportedly signed on to star in a remake of the 1960 Western film "The Magnificent Seven."

Variety reports that Cruise has wanted to do a remake for some time, but has been too busy with other films. Cruise is next up in "Rock of Ages," due out June 15.

Lady Gaga's concert tour of Asia has gotten a lot of unwanted attention - as the singer faced protesters in various countries. But Gaga got some good news on Tuesday (May 22) as she has been given the go-ahead to put on a second concert in the Philippines. The second show was in question as Manila authorities were concerned that her performance may be deemed immoral. However, authorities said her first show did not violate the law.
