Six Weeks Before Filming Was Set to Begin, the Matthew McConaughey Football Movie Was Cancelled

Published

on

Six weeks before it was scheduled to begin filming, the real-life tale of a female high school soccer team was to be the subject of Matthew McConaughey’s upcoming movie Dallas Sting.

Why was it Cancelled?

According to Deadline, the upcoming movie will tell the tale of a juvenile football squad that went to China in 1984 and unexpectedly defeated some of the greatest women’s teams in the world.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project was unexpectedly halted due to “disturbing suspicions surrounding portions of the genuine narrative.”

The precise causes may not have been made public, but if they were important enough to cause the project as a whole to be abandoned, they must have been.

The allegations are the subject of a misconduct inquiry.

Ben Kinder, the team’s actual coach, would have been played by McConaughey, and the coach’s daughter would have been played by Emmy-nominated actress Kailin Dever (Booksmart).

The team’s actual football players were also scheduled to make their television debut.

Liz Flahive and Carly Mensch, the writers of Glow, were going to write the script, and Kari Skogland was going to helm the film. The movie was also going to be produced by Skydance and Berlanti Schechter Productions.

In an effort to improve relations with China, US President Ronald Regan recruited the US amateur women’s football team.

The nation had accepted China’s invitation to bring its women’s national soccer team over to compete in the inaugural soccer global championship.

There was only one significant issue, though: the US lacked a female football squad to represent them.

An extensive nationwide search eventually resulted in the formation of The Sting, a 19-and-under league made up of Dallas high school females.

Coach Kinder, who had no prior coaching experience, was in charge of the team.

Yes, this is the ideal scenario for a Hollywood underdog story.

But Kinder was, to put it mildly, unconventional in his methods, as the coach reportedly spent $US 85,000 (AUD $125,971, £73,728) of his money on non-refundable tickets to ensure the team’s travel arrangements to China.

According to Deadline, Kinder also needed a letter from a gynaecologist stating that the girls’ reproductive organs wouldn’t be harmed by the activity in order for the girls to compete.

It’s a real shame that this historical sports film starring women won’t soon grace the big screen.

But there must be a good cause for a project to be abandoned at such a late stage.

New American Pie Movie in Progress

Published

on

According to the writer Sujata Day, the upcoming American Pie movie will present “a fresh take” on the long-running filthy comic series. The Hollywood Reporter claims that Day’s initial idea served as the inspiration for this next entry in the American Pie series.

Something Appropriate

According to star Jason Biggs, the famed webcam sequence from the original American Pie “wouldn’t be made now and it couldn’t get made now. It would be unacceptable what that represents.” A modern remake of the film would almost surely have taken a different stance on what a sex comedy can be in the movie world.

A Huge Possibility

The upcoming American Pie movie does not currently have a director, but Day made her directorial debut in 2020 with Definition Please, a comedy-drama about a former spelling bee champion that won prizes at the San Francisco CAAM Fest and the Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival, among other events. Her first significant directing role may be on a new American Pie.

The main series most recently came to an end in 2012 with American Reunion. And with the gap of years that comes with the upcoming movie, the plot should keep up with the times, and hopefully deliver a great movie for the ages!

A Long Awaited Movie Finally Comes the Way of “Community”

Published

on

Community has six seasons under its belt and, as the prophecy predicted, will soon have its long-awaited motion picture. A movie based on Dan Harmon’s enduring comedy has finally been commissioned by Peacock.

A Few More Details

The fact that practically the whole original cast will return is perhaps even more thrilling. Peacock has non-competitive rights to broadcast Community Season Six in addition to the movie.

A Bit of a Hint

Joel McHale, who plays Joel on the television show Community, recently hinted in a Tweet that the movie, which has been touted ever since the program ended in 2015, would be coming soon. The phrase “Six seasons and a movie,” which frequently appears on the show and, consequently, among its ardent following, is referenced in the Tweet.

Cardi B Opens Up About Failed Collaboration with Call of Duty

Published

on

It may sound a little strange, but Cardi B should be creating some buzz for Call of Duty. Back in July, the rapper partnered with Activision. She goes on to tell us more about how the partnership eventually fell apart after that.

The Reason

You might recall that Cardi B debuted her partnership with Activision by donning a Simon “Ghost” Riley necklace in the music video for “Hot S**t.” Since then, you probably haven’t seen Cardi B advertising Call of Duty because she allegedly lost her cooperation deal as a result of prior “stupid decisions.”

A Hot Topic

Cardi B admitted guilt to assault-related charges earlier this month, according to Comic Book. They related to an altercation that occurred in a New York strip club in 2018. Cardi B took a plea agreement that included 15 days of community service, paying court costs for the other women involved, and avoiding prison time.
