New MUSE Project: Paul Verhoeven (Robocop, Total Recall, Basic Instinct, Pulp Fiction) to direct film based on his book ’Jesus of Navareth.’ MUSE’s Chris Hanley will back the project, the product of two decades of research by Verhoeven.

Ashley Benson has been added to Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers’ roster of babes. Emma Roberts dropped out of the film but the Pretty Little Liars actress will join real-life buds Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens on the set.
Hudgens recently told Hollywood Life “I adore Selena and I am just so excited to work with her on Spring Breakers,” Vanessa said. “We both have been so busy lately that working together on this film will give us time to catch up and just have fun. It will be more like fun than work.” They are set to reunite when shooting starts in Florida on February 12th.
But is the fourth starring slot still unfilled or will the film’s foursome of robbers be completed by Korine’s wife Rachel (shown above with the director)? Back in November, Indiewire reported the singer/actress/photographer, who played Little Red Riding Hood in Korine’s Mister Lonely, would join the cast.
YOWZA. New York Magazine is dissecting the economy of Hollywood big shots. That first image is what a Mega Producer makes (including “seven previous movies and producer fees on two new ones”) and spends. The second is what an A-List Actor makes (and spends). Pretty crazy stuff. Even more crazy is how much celebrities can make off their Tweets.
