Huffington Post - 6 days
“Jawbreaker,” the 1999 teen cult classic, is getting the remake treatment.  According to Deadline, E! is developing a TV series based on the film about a group of popular girls who accidentally kill their friend after a prank gone wrong. The original flick starred Rose McGowan, Rebecca Gayheart and Judy Greer.  Darren Stein, who wrote and directed the original, is set to return for the series along with George Northy (”G.B.F.”). Both will also serve as executive producers.  The new series will be a reimagining of the original, according to Deadline. It will reportedly follow a new clique who somehow becomes involved in an accidental killing at a bachelorette party. They, of course, “go to great lengths to keep their secret hidden.”  Sounds juicy.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

There is no limit to his butthurt when challenged or mocked, and if you have a large platform, you're in a unique position to chip away at whatever shred of sanity he has left. Consider these points: White House sources recently told The Washington Post that Trump became "visibly enraged" after learning the Women's March dwarfed the crowd at his inauguration and that his joyful mood turned into "flashes of anger" less than 24-hours after he took office. It's also very clear Alec Baldwin has lodged himself under Donald Trump's thin skin, and he's only just getting started. Baldwin's portrayal of Trump on Saturday Night Live is not only awe-inspiring and hysterical, it's the perfect vehicle to showcase much-needed resistance, and most importantly, it drives Trump mad. We all know it drives him mad because he takes the bait and angry-tweets about it every time. When Congressman John Lewis said he would be ...
