Michael Douglas as Ronald Reagan in indie film?

Michael Douglas’ next role might be pulled from the history books.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Douglas is in talks to play former President Ronald Reagan in a film called “Reykjavik.”

The independent project centers on the 1986 nuclear arms discussions held between Reagan and Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev in the titular capital of Iceland.

Ridley Scott, now serving as a producer on the film, at one point was considering directing, but at the moment Mike Newell is reportedly in talks to helm the $10 million project.

THR notes that “Reykjavik’s” producers are still looking for an actor to play Gorbachev — any thoughts on casting?

Nollywood Actor, Rich Oganiru, kills Wife Over Her Property

National Enquirer magazine has reported that though Rich Oganiru`s name might not really ring a bell again but he`s one of Nollywood`s very good actors and stakeholders. In fact, he prides himself as one of the pioneering members of the Actors Guild of Nigeria and has starred in over 300 movies.

Please look at his pictures again if you`re still in doubt because he`s presently battling a murder scandal for his alleged involvement in the complicity leading to the death of a very rich Abuja based multimillionaire businesswoman believed to be his wife.

The deceased, National Enquirer gathered reliably is not his first wife, the first wife also died mysteriously years back and he was in a very poor state of life before he met the Abuja based multimillionaire who transformed his life in a matter of months.

Rich Oganiru, according to those who know him, loves money and attention almost to a fault, aside that, he also likes blowing his own trumpet as he always praises himself, “I have starred in…

Movies:RZA Recalls Learning From 'The Master' Quentin Tarantino

RZA's affinity for martial arts films has been well known since Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) changed hip-hop in 1993. So, when RZA described Quentin Tarantino's mentorship over his budding movie-directing career, he put it in kung-fu terms.
"When I met Quentin Tarantino, I kind of met my, as we say in martial arts, my Sifu," RZA told MTV News, using the Chinese word for "master." "I asked him if I could become a student of his. That's a very humbling thing, especially for the RZA," he noted.
The Wu-Tang mastermind co-wrote, directed and starred in this fall's "The Man With the Iron Fists," which also stars Russell Crowe and Lucy Liu and boasts a predictably killer soundtrack featuring Kanye West and the Black Keys. RZA made a cameo in Jim Jarmusch's "Ghost Dog" in the late '90s and worked on music for action maestro John Woo, too. But befriending the "Pulp Fiction" writer/director took things to a new…

Harvard Cheating Ring: University Probing Dozens In Plagiarism Scandal

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — Dozens of Harvard University students are being investigated for cheating after school officials discovered they may have shared answers or plagiarized on a final exam.
Harvard officials declined to release the name of the class, the students' names or the exact number being investigated, citing privacy laws.
The undergraduate class had a minimum of 250 students and possible cheating was discovered in roughly half the take-home exams, university officials said Thursday.
"These allegations, if proven, represent totally unacceptable behavior that betrays the trust upon which intellectual inquiry at Harvard depends," President Drew Faust said.
Each student whose work is in question has been called to appear before a subcommittee of the Harvard College Administrative Board, which reviews issues of academic integrity, said Jay M. Harris, dean of undergraduate Education. He emphasized that none of the allegations has been proven and said there's no evidence …

Comedian I Go Dye acquires Cadillac Escalade and Range Rover SUV

The comedian I go dye poses with his new toy
It’s big things popping for I Go Dye!
The warri-born stand-up comic whose real name is Francis Agoda recently acquired two brand new cars - A brand new white Cadillac Escalade Hybrid 2012 Model for himself (of course he got the number plate customized!) and  a Range Rover Evoque for his girlfriend Sharon.
We’re told the comedian got himself the escalade to celebrate his 18th anniversary as a stand up act. We guess it was only ‘gentlemanly’ for him to get Sharon who doubles as his event manager a toy of her own…
The comic act recently revealed in an interview that it was poverty that drove him into his line of work. See who’s laughing to the bank now?

Report: Lindsay Lohan Suspected of Jewelry Theft… Again

Actress Lindsay Lohan has been tagged as a suspect in the theft of $100,000 worth of watches and sunglasses, says TMZ. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Lohan and her assistant, Gavin Doyle, are being investigated after multi-millionaire Sam Magid reported the items stolen from his Hollywood Hills home last week.

The "Liz and Dick" actress had attended an all-night party at Magid's home last Sunday when Magid made the claim, but since then, he recanted his story to say nothing was stolen.

No matter. TMZ says cops are continuing the investigation because they may have independent witnesses who can identify Lindsay and Gavin as the thieves.

The LAPD detectives reportedly contacted LiLo's lawyer for an interview Monday and were turned away.

If Lindsay truly is the culprit, she could be in some major trouble because she is still on probation for the 2011 theft case involving a necklace lifted from a Venice jewelry store

'Expendables 2' Stays At #1 During Weakest Box Office Of 2012

It was something of a hollow victory this weekend for "The Expendables 2," which held on to the #1 spot during the weakest box office of the year so far, signaling the end of the summer blockbuster season.
Late August is generally a bad time for theaters, and this one was particularly disappointing. "The Bourne Legacy" also held on to its spot at #2, thanks to a crop of underperforming newcomers: "Premium Rush," "Hit and Run" and horror flick "The Apparition," which didn't even manage to crack the top 10.
Speaking with MTV News last week, movie industry experts had predicted another win for "The Expendables 2". Sylvester Stallone's shoot-em-up powerhouse took in another $13.5 million for a two-week total of $52.3 million. During the same time period in 2010, "The Expendables" had already collected $65.4 million. Still, the relatively low-budget sequel is a success for Lionsgate.
Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger …

My grandmum would have rejected her face on new N5000 note – Seun Kuti

Seun Kuti, grandson of Funmilayo Kuti, one of the women whose picture has been approved to appear on the proposed N5,000 note, on Monday said that his grandmother would not approve of the image if she were still alive.

Seun Kuti disclosed this at a question and answer session on the Channels Television’s Google+ Hangout.

“I do not have the power to stop the FG from printing the note but I would want the FG to remove my grandma’s face from the s0-called note,” he said.

The Afro-beat musician talked about his grandmother, Funmilayo Ransome –Kuti, his legendary father Fela Anikulapo Kuti, his own music with Egypt 80 band and life.

Speaking on the money to be spent in printing out the N5000 note, Seun Kuti said “If I had N40b I will rebuild the federal government primary and seconda…

Nigeria’s reigning superstars of twitter…and the ‘Top 5′

The era of pen pals or fans clubs are fast disappearing with the bug of information technology eating into every fabric of our everyday living. The most powerful tools of communication are shifting from what we used to know to what are taking over the way we socialise, even across great distances.

In today’s fast paced world of inter-connectivity from one part of the world to another, the social networking utilities like Twitter and the Facebook top the bill. Between the two utilities, billions of people around the world socialise freely, sharing information and even doing businesses, regardless of boundaries and time zone differences.

Although Facebook is as good as it could get but Twitter has the edge for its configuration,which makes it very easy to determine the number of people who is connected with a person.

It has become a platform through which a person’s popularity could be measured. Facebook, for all the goodies it offers has a limitation as to the number of people who …

13 Teenage Chinese Prostitutes arrested in an Apartment in Lagos,Nigeria

13 teenage Chinese prostitutes have been arrested and detained by the Nigerian Immigration Service following a raid of their base on Emina Crescent, off Toyin Street, Ikeja. The immigration service raided the apartment following a tip off.

More than 40 teenage girls were brought into the country and camped in an apartment for Nigerian politicians, business executives and expatriates to hire for s*x at the cost of between $1,000 and $2,500. The cartel was run by Chinese couple named Sun and Yin Li.

They’ve been operating for a while and a source in the know said the business was booming and the couple were in the process of importing more girls before they were raided. Only 13 girls were picked from the apartment. The Chinese couple, along with some other girls, managed to escape from the apartment and are now in hiding.

NIS spokesman, Joachim Olumba confirmed the arrest and said the girls are in their custody. He also said they are on the trail of the kingpin of the sex ring. And after i…

100-Year-Old Mysterious Package In Norway Set To Be Opened

Stocks in oil? Historical documents? A small treasure? Speculation over what might be inside a 100-year-old package that's set to be unsealed this Friday in a small town in Norway abounds, according to Verdens Gang, a Norwegian newspaper.
Verdens Gang explains that the package has been kept in a museum in Gudbrandsdal and dates all the way back to August 26th, 1912. It carries a note from a man named Johan Nygard, specifying that it is not to be opened until 2012.
There are few clues about what the package might contain. What is known is that Nygard was involved in local politics and that he reportedly walked up to the mayor and handed him the package telling him that its contents would "benefit and delight future generations," according to a video that was posted the Verdens Gang website.
The idea of leaving something of meaning behind for future generations is romantic in theory, but some time capsule-like projects have proved to be a mixed bag in terms of their significa…

Madonna forgives Elton John

Although Elton John’s sniped about Madonna’s latest tour, likening her style to that of a “fairground stripper,” Madge tried to take the high road at her tour stop in Nice, France, on Tuesday.

She even dedicated her song “Masterpiece” to Sir Elton, noting that “he’s a big fan of it, and I know he’s a big fan of mine.”

Fans might beg to differ, recalling the words the music legend told an Australian TV outlet earlier this month.

“She’s such a nightmare,” John said to Australia’s “Sunday Night.” “Her career’s over … and she looks like a f*****g fairground stripper.”

However, Madonna’s putting all that aside. “You know what?” she told the audience. “I forgive him. Gotta start somewhere.”

Game On Broken Engagement: 'We're Working On Us'

Game and longtime girlfriend Tiffney Cambridge have been on a roller-coaster ride of emotional ups and downs in their relationship in the last year. Back in October, Game made headlines when he staged an elaborate proposal at Cambridge's workplace, Frank D. Parent Elementary School in Inglewood, California, where he happily admitted he was throwing away his "player card" and ready to be a family man.
Nine months later, the couple unexpectedly called off their pending nuptials. The wedding was canceled along with reported plans to build a reality show around their big day. The Game himself took the blame for "not being man enough to see it through."
Now it seems as though there might be a happy ending in the works after all. When MTV News caught up with Game on Friday (August 24), he said he and Cambridge are working things out.
"The engagement, as of right now, you know what? We're just working on us," he told us from the Northridge, California, set …

Another Kanye West tweet stirs up controversy

Kanye West seems to have perfected his act of stirring up mega controversy via micro-blogging site Twitter.
Why the social network will be happy some of polemical musings-statements are gaining thousands of retweets, can we all pause to ponder on what the US rapper/C.E.O  says that drags all that attention to his Twitter page?
Last night Kanye tweeted ‘I just f*****d Kim so hard‘, referring to his girlfriend Kim Kardashian. Yes, he tweeted that, resulting to 7,410 retweets with 39,777 of his followers ‘favourting’ the tweet. The tweet was deleted a few minutes later.
This isn’t the first time Kanye is giving out #TMI (that means ‘too much info’ for you social network starters); earlier in the month he called Kim K his ‘perfect b***h‘, weeks before that a photo of a naked woman who has a striking resemblance with Kim leaked on his page.
What’s next Kanye? A sex tape with Kim?

Kanye West deleted the tweet later on…

Mysterious hand causes stir at Church crusade

THE sudden appearance of a mysterious hand during a crusade organized at the headquarters of the Glorious Assemblies Ministries popularly known as Christ Endtime Military Academy, Calabar, Cross River State is now a subject of discussion among residents of the city.

The mysterious hand which appeared on the fourth day of the programme radiated with light and pierced through the ceiling of the church building before young boys who were part of the programme noticed it with amazement.

Though many people have insinuated many things concerning the hand, the General Overseer of the Church, Pastor Timmy Larry described the hand as the hand of Jesus Christ and that a day before the mysterious hand appeared, a lady  saw a vision that a mighty hand came from behind and lifted and smashed a man.

Larry explained that “the mysterious appearance of the hand came up on the fourth day of the programme.

“ I was busy praying for people after coming out from seclusion. I was told of the hand by a Camera ma…

Fired worker kills boss at Empire State Building, wounds 9 others before cop shoots him

A fired worker stalked his boss down a Midtown street, shot him dead and then turned his weapon on police officers — and in the ensuing gun battle he was killed and nine pedestrians were struck, some by cop bullets, Mayor Bloomberg and Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said today.
The 9 a.m. mayhem sent commuters and tourists in a panicked scramble from the jam-packed intersection of 34th Street and Fifth Avenue.
Bloomberg identified the shooter as Jeffrey Johnson, 53, who had been fired a year ago from Hazan Imports at 10 W. 33rd Street, around the corner from the scene.
The body of the gunman's victim, Steve Ercolino, seen on the sidewalk before police arrived at the scene.

He returned there yesterday with the gun and stalked his victim, a former co-worker identified as 41-year-old Steve Ercolino.
After fatally shooting Ercolino in the head, he walked down 33rd Street with the gun concealed and was con…

Angelina Jolie’s daughter Vivienne cast in ‘Maleficent’

Another Jolie-Pitt kid is making an entrance into the movie business.

After Shiloh’s appearance as a baby in 2008′s “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” which starred dad Brad Pitt, little Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 4, will join mom Angelina in “Maleficent.”

The upcoming Disney project is a spin on the classic “Sleeping Beauty” fairy tale, which tells the story of Princess Aurora and the evil Maleficent.

With the new, live-action version, the studio will explore Maleficent’s background and the reason she cursed Aurora, with Angelina as the titular villain.

Vivienne, who’s already been in the spotlight with twin brother Knox thanks to a People magazine cover upon their arrival in ’08, has been cast as the child version of Princess Aurora. (Elle Fanning, 14, will presumably portray the older version.)

Angelina and Vivienne’s “Maleficent” will arrive in theaters March 14, 2014.

BEEF: Lil Wayne 'Just Laughed' At Chris Brown, Drake After Club Brawl

Nicki Minaj recently described her relationship with Lil Wayne by painting the picture of a once-strict father figure who now takes a very casual approach to parenting. It seems like Weezy also extends that parenting style to Drake.
The Toronto rapper was allegedly involved in a nightclub brawl with Chris Brown and his entourage back in June, and while the lawsuits continue to pour in, Wayne admits that he simply laughed at the whole thing. During an appearance in Las Vegas to debut his Supra sneaker line this week, the New Orleans native told MTV News that the incident was humorous to him.
"Honestly, I laughed at them," he said, not able to contain his laughter, even in that moment. "I can't front, I just laughed at them... like, it's funny to me. I thank God I ain't going through it though, I've already been through too much."
In the past week alone Drake and Chris Brown have been hit with two lawsuits as a result of the bottle-throwing brawl that ni…

3 Unexploded Bombs Discovered At Construction Site In Enugu State

It was yet another shocker when three unexploded bombs believed to be remnants of explosives used during the three-year of Nigerian civil war was discovered at a construction site in Enugu by labourers digging a foundation.

The Field Administrator of the Nigerian Mine Action Centre, a department of the Federal Ministry of Defence, Dr. Emeka Uhegbu, told newsmen shortly after removing the three unexploded bombs at the site, which is close to the 9th Mile area of Udi Local Government Area of Enugu State, that if the unexploded bombs were not found and detonated, they could kill innocent people.
