Author Jackie Collins has died aged 77 after a long-battle with breast cancer. She was married twice and is survived by her three daughters and sister Joan Collins.

‘Mean Girls’ and ‘Les Miserables’ star Amanda Seyfried has joined the new series of ‘Twin Peaks’. Show creators David Lynch and Mark Frost are bringing back the cult classic and loads of the original cast including Kyle MacLachlan. Is it just me who suspects she could be playing Heather Graham’s original character Annie Blackburn?
Famously outspoken art critic Brian Sewell has died aged 84. He worked for the Evening Standard for over 30 years and once claimed that Banksy “should have been put down at birth”.
Like it or not, Disney have found a way to make new money from their classics and there’s no stopping them. They have already delivered a live-action (with plenty of CGI) remake of Alice In Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty (‘Maleficent’), and Cinderella. Here’s a first look at the new version of ‘The Jungle Book’.
The film stars Neel Sethi as Mowgli alongside the voices of Ben Kingsley, Lupita Nyong’o, Bill Murray, Christopher Walken, Idris Elba and Scarlett Johansson and is due out in April 2016.
BTW The are also plans afoot to remake ‘Beauty and the Beast’, ‘The Sword in the Stone’, ‘Night on Bald Mountain’, and ‘Pinocchio’ amongst others.
