Daily Blind Item — Cocaine Budget


Dennis Quaid insisted that movies often have a cocaine allocation cleverly hidden in the budget and while various sources over the years have insisted that isn’t as common as it was once in the 80’s, one source has recently touched base with me to insist that this upcoming movie, highly anticipated and highly budgeted, definitely had a secret allocation.

She won’t tell me what the “code name” is for the white powder, but she is telling me the budget was at least 6 figures and it might even be broaching 7.

I guess when you look at the cast, it does become rather obvious. Let’s just hope nobody goes overboard and ends up dead.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

What is our movie?

PS: We’re reintroduced hints in our blind items upon popular demand, so.

TGL Round-Up: Major Shakeups with American Crime Story: Katrina, Netflix Announces The Crown Premiere Date


American Crime Story: Katrina just got with a hurricane of its own, Variety confirms.

The planned third season of the Ryan Murphy FX anthology series will now be based on the book “Five Days at Memorial” by Sheri Fink. Scott Rudin, who previously acquired the rights to the book, will now join “Katrina” as an executive producer alongside Murphy, Brad Simpson, and Nina Jacobson.

Annette Bening, Matthew Broderick, and Dennis Quaid have also been let go from the cast. Only Ryan Murphy’s frequent collaborator Sarah Paulson will remain.

Netflix has announced The Crown’s series 2 premiere date in the latest teaser trailer for the show about royalty.

Set between 1956 and 1964, it “bears witness to the end of the age of deference and ushers in the revolutionary era of the 1960s,” according to a statement provided by Netflix.

The Crown series 2 is released on December 8th and stars Matt Smith and Claire Foy.
