    If it came down between choosing to recast GG or pay Ratner to go away WB would have a public relations disaster if they choose the former. DECU is on shaky ground and WW has been it's only genuine bright spot.

    Then she breaks her contract, with all the ramifications that entails.

    I'm on her side here, I just don't see this having a happy ending. Ratner has absolutely no incentive to walk away from likely his last payday. If a morals clause even exists it would have to be proven in a court of law that he broke it. I adore Ellen Page but being mean to her isn't enough and the allegations against him are just that. And while all this is being argued in court for the next few years, Patty Jenkins and crew are spinning their wheels waiting to begin production. There probably isn't a morals clause anyway since Ratner was basically giving WB money to help finance the film.

    Maybe WB can find a dollar amount good enough to get Ratner to go away, but if they can't this is going to be ugly.

    ETA: the original deal was for $450,000,000. How much does WB pay Ratner to just go away? And how quickly do the shareholders fire CEO Kevin Tsujihara after he signs away all that money?

    Agreed. And everyone has a price. Ratner will still get rich, it's just a matter of how rich, and how much work he had to do with the movie.

    Keep your eye on Dan Schneider. Producer of the cavalcade of 90's/00's/current live action Nickelodeon shows (All That, Kenan and Kel, The Amanda Show, Drake and Josh, iCarly, et cetera, et cetera.) Per Reddit (yeah, yeah) it's a pretty open secret.

    I saw some Yahoo headline clickbait about Nickelodeon, but Yahoo, so didn't click.

    The foot fetish thing? I think that rumor is as old as the Internet.

    @dicknixon keeps tweeting that it is a well known fact that Kirk Douglas raped Natalie Wood.

    This changes the story considerably. Gal Gadot had a three-picture deal at WB. Batman Vs Superman, Wonder Woman and Justice League complete that deal. That means she is NOT under contract for the sequel.

    For their part, WB says they have heard no such demand from Gadot and Gadot hasn't said anything publicly.

    ETA: the release date for WW2 was moved up to November 1, 2019 to avoid direct competition with that little Star Wars film.

    Hey, the day is almost over and there have been no new allegations made against any Hollywood actors, directors or executives today! So, good job everyone.

    Not so fast, political world...

    Better get ready for three year's worth of movies starring Julia Roberts and Tom Hanks, directed by Ron Howard.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.
