I thought that they just did Dreamgirls, or an imitation. I anticipate more musicals coming.

Long-awaited? Are we supposed to pretend the 2006 version never happened?

I hear they've signed this new actress named Julie Andrews to star in the screen version of Rogers and Hammerstein's Sound of Music.

You theatre queens likely know Julie from Camelot and My Fair Lady.

I just saw the scariest movie - The Exorcist. Don't go; people were fainting or running out of the theater. There was an ambulance out front when we left.

Julie Andrews has signed for the remake of My fair Lady. I kid you not, she is going to be Professor Henrietta Higgans, and Colin Firth will be Larry Dolittle. Lucy wanted to do it, but Gary wouldn't let her.

Fantasia reminds me of Fantine which reminds me of how touching my performance was which reminds me of the Oscar and how I will cut people if I don't win.

Viola honey....just wanted to send my condolances.....I read how your film "Won't Black Down" with Maggie Gyllenhaal is making some 10 worst lists. It really wasn't your year was it? Well next year will be better. I hear they are doing A Raisin in the Son on Bway....perhaps you could play Denzel's mother?

Maybe OP meant that Fantasia is in the running to play Mahalia Jackson in an upcoming biopic, but Mahalia's relatives have their doubts because of Fantasia's child with a (then) married man?
