Jared Leto, frontman of 30 Seconds to Mars and Academy Award winning actor, is being rumored to play Marvel's "Doctor Strange." I guess that's no worse than the rumor that Robert Pattinson may play Indiana Jones.

Remember that Jesus Christ Superstar show with Johnny Rotten and Brandon Boyd from Incubus? It's been canceled.
A statement on the show’s website confirmed the news that the production, which was to have started performances June 9 at the Lakefront Arena in New Orleans, was no longer going forward and that all ticket sales would be refunded.

NBC has canceled Community. Sort of related: If you add up viewers for new episodes of Community, Parks and Recreation, and The Mindy Project -- the sum total is less than those for a Big Bang Theory rerun.

Lionsgate is going to make a Power Rangers feature film.
“Lionsgate is the perfect home for elevating our Power Rangers brand to the next level,” Saban said. “They have the vision, marketing prowess and incredible track record in launching breakthrough hits from ‘The Hunger Games' to ‘Twilight' and ‘Divergent.’ In partnership with the Lionsgate team, we're confident that we will capture the world of the Power Rangers and translate it into a unique and memorable motion picture phenomenon with a legacy all its own.”

Amazon and HBO have signed an agreement to bring many of the premium channel's shows to Amazons Prime's video service. Just gonna toss it out there: if you haven't seen The Sopranos, Six Feet Under, and/or The Wire ... you're missing out.
Newer shows like Girls, The Newsroom and Veep will eventually be made available to Prime subscribers, but not until three years after they've first aired on HBO. And other hits like Game of Thrones aren't even mentioned as part of the deal, so HBO may be keeping some popular content for itself.

The new documentary Heaven Adores You, will be the first full-length feature that is allowed to use Elliott Smith's music -- and, reportedly, will also contain some unreleased music.
Directed by Nickolas Rossi, the film is billed as “an intimate, meditative inquiry into the life and music of Elliott Smith.” It will feature unreleased songs, personal pictures, and rare footage in addition to interviews with Smith’s friends and collaborators. Among those appearing in the documentary are Smith’s sister Ashley, Joanna Bolme, Jon Brion, Neil Gust, Larry Crane, Rob Schnapf, and many more.

According to Entertainment Weekly, not only is the new Zach Braff helmed movie, Wish I Was Here, good, but it also features new music from Bon Iver and The Shins' frontman James Mercer.
“In this case, it was unique because we sent [music supervisor] Mary Ramos to Wisconsin to show the movie to Bon Iver, and they wrote a song pretty much on the spot,” Braff said. “She sat there in Wisconsin while they wrote a song.”
