☀️SHAZAM 2 ditches Dec, as HBOMAX pics get theatrical slots
WBD is screening BATGIRL for cast & crew / Layoffs hit HBOMAX Euro staff / NETFLIX sets Simu Liu for JLO (Jaffleck?) pic
Mornin! This is Sean McNulty and here’s the Hollywood + Media news to know on THURSDAY August 25, 2022.
Where Jennifer Flavin has filed for divorce from Stallone after 25 years of marriage.
Sly reportedly covered his tattoo of his wife’s name… with his deceased dog’s - that story was dropped the day before yesterday’s divorce news, with a rationale given that he was touching up his wife’s tattoo and it got messed up… 🧐🤔
The piece from People also mentions a PAR+ reality show on the Stallone family that was in the works but… no word on what’s up there.
PLUS: BILLY JOEL’s latest special guest at his MSG residency was Olivia Rodrigo. The man knows how to put on a show… although they went with “Uptown Girl” for a duet. Seeing Olivia have no idea what any events in “We Didn’t Start the Fire” are might have been more entertaining. (just kidding Olivia. but, ya know).
