Madonna Biopic Reportedly No Longer In Development At Universal

A much-anticipated biopic about Madonna went on hold and is not in development at Universal Pictures, Variety reported quoting multiple sources.

The uncertainty surrounding the film came to light when the Queen of Pop last week announced her 40th anniversary world tour and that she sold out shows in many cities, including Paris and London as well asNew York. Until now, she has added 23 dates for her European and North American tour.

The biopic was supposed to star Julia Garner as the pop star and was set to be directed by Madonna herself. The film, titled "Little Sparrow," had been in development from 2020 at Universal Pictures. She had worked with both Diablo Cody and Erin Cressida Wilson on drafts of the script.

While the 64-year-old star is still interested in completing the film, which talks about the roller coater ride of her life and career, when that will happen remains uncertain.

Paul McCartney Announces New Photography Exhibition And Book

Paul McCartney Announces New Photography Exhibition And Book

Paul McCartney has announced new photography exhibition and book, featuring his photographs from the Beatles' performances when Beatlemania erupted in the U.K. and many never-before-seen portraits of his bandmates John Lennon, George Harrison and Ringo Starr.

In 2020, an extraordinary trove of nearly a thousand photographs taken by McCartney on a 35mm camera was re-discovered in his archive. They intimately record the months towards the end of 1963 and beginning of 1964, when the Beatles toured Liverpool, London, Paris, New York, Washington, D.C. and Miami.

"Anyone who rediscovers a personal relic or family treasure is instantly flooded with memories and emotions, which then trigger associations buried in the haze of time," said McCartney. "This was exactly my experience in seeing these photos, all taken over an intense three-month period of travel, culminating in February 1964. It was a wonderful sensation to be plunged right back."

"Here was my own record of our first huge trip, a photographic journal of The Beatles in six cities, beginning in Liverpool and London, followed by Paris (where John and I had been ordinary hitchhikers just over two years before), and then what we regarded as the big time, our first visit as a group to America," he added.

The exhibition, titled "Paul McCartney Photographs 1963-64: Eyes of the Storm," will open at the London National Portrait Gallery on June 28, the week that follows the gallery's reopening. It will run up to October 1.

In a new book accompanying the exhibition, McCartney presents 275 of his own photographs from the six city portfolios.

In his Foreword and Introductions, McCartney remembers "what else can you call it - pandemonium" and conveys his impressions of Britain and America in 1964 - the moment when the culture changed and the Sixties really began.

The book also features Beatleland, an Introduction by Harvard historian and New Yorker essayist Jill Lepore; A Preface by Nicholas Cullinan, Director of the National Portrait Gallery, London; and Another Lens, an essay by Senior Curator Rosie Broadley.

"1964: Eyes of the Storm" is available to pre-order at https://www.paulmccartney.com/eyesofthestorm.

Primary Wave Acquires Music Rights Of The Doors' Robby Krieger, Ray Manzarek

Primary Wave Music has announced that it has finalized an agreement to acquire the music rights of Robby Krieger and the late Ray Manzarek of the critically acclaimed rock band The Doors.

The acquisition includes their interests in The Doors' music publishing catalog, recordings, trademarks, and merchandise rights and income, among other things.

"After 58 years, and the most magical of times, I've decided to sell my share of The Doors to Primary Wave," said Krieger. "This will enable me to help the many charities I've been involved with, and some new ones too. I know Primary Wave cares about music, art, and about helping legacies go to even bigger levels."

"Under the continued guidance of our manager, Jeff Jampol, Primary Wave will be the right partners in this endeavor to build future generations of new Doors fans," said Manzarek's wife Dorothy Manzarek.

"The Doors are one of the most legendary rock bands of all time. We are looking forward to growing the legacies of Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek," added Larry Mestel, CEO & Founder of Primary Wave Music.

"I'm lucky to have two of the world's best mix engineers; Tchad Blake and Mark 'Spike' Stent, working with me on the music from i/o. R ather than choosing only one of their mixes to release I have decided that people should be able to hear all the great work that they are both doing," Gabriel said in a newsletter to his Full Moon Club.

"I intend to ask them to mix each month's song, with Spike's mixes being called the Bright-Side and Tchad's the Dark-Side. Whether you hear the Bright-Side or the Dark-Side first will vary each full moon, depending on the order we decide to release them," he added. "I know this amount of detail is not for everyone, but I hope those that are into their music production will enjoy their different interpretations."

Jonathan Cain Sues Neal Schon For Allegedly Charging $1 Million To Shared Credit Card

Jonathan Cain Sues Neal Schon For Allegedly Charging $1 Million To Shared Credit Card

Journey keyboardist Jonathan Cain has filed a suit against longtime bandmate Neal Schon, alleging that he spent over $1 million on the band's shared American Express card, including $400,000 in a single month last year.

Cain's allegation comes after Schon initiated a legal battle a few months ago by filing a lawsuit against Cain, accusing him of blocking access to "critical" financial records linked to the Amex account.

The countersuit filed by Cain in California state court claims that it was Schon's own actions that had led to those restrictions on his access to the Amex account, including "misusing" the card to deal with his own "financial problems as a result of an extravagant lifestyle."

"Schon's use of the [shared] AMEX card for personal expenses created serious liquidity problems for the band, as the AMEX balance had to be paid every month, and there were insufficient revenues to pay for other expenses as Schon saddled Journey with over $1 million of his personal expenses," Cain's lawyers wrote in the new complaint, filed January 13.

The countersuit also included several specific allegations about Schon's spending habits. It claims Schon promptly spent over $100,000 in January 2022 when given access to the account. Then he allegedly spent a whopping $400,000 at Bergdorf Goodman department store in New York City and other retailers in March.

Cain also says Schon demanded suites at a Hawaiian hotel that cost north of $5,000 per night, then stayed a week longer than necessary and racked up more than $100,000 more in charges on the card.
