Mornin! This is Sean McNulty (connect with me on LinkedIn here if ya like), and here’s the Hollywood + Media news to know on WEDNESDAY Nov. 15, 2023.
Where… good news kids! WARNER MUSIC is using the power of the latest in AI technology to bring… Edith Piaf back to life! Can’t wait to see the TIKTOKs.
The upcoming film will be narrated by an AI-generated facsimile of Piaf’s voice, and incorporate a custom animation style based on archival footage to portray the legendary French singer’s life.
ALSO: How are we only a week away from THANKSGIVING break? 🤯
AND: Steve Carell is doing his BROADWAY debut in April with Uncle Vanya, with William Jackson Harper, Alfred Molina, Alison Pill and others.
PLUS: TIKTOK now allows users to add songs they find on TIKTOK to their favorite third-party streaming services (SPOTIFY, APPLE and AMAZON MUSIC) in the U.S. and U.K. to start.
MY APOLOGIES: For not sending a big kudos to NYC’s only winning sports team! The stench of defeat in NYC football… immediately following NYC baseball can be disorienting this time of year.
The women of the GOTHAM F.C. took home the NWSL⚽️ Championship title this past weekend, with a surprise victory over Seattle’s O.L. REIGN. This after GOTHAM finished 12th (out of 12 teams) last season. Thanks for delivering the city at least one championship so far this decade!
