Report: Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Leave Canada And Move To LA | The Daily Caller

Katie Jerkovich Entertainment Reporter

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have reportedly left their home on Vancouver Island in Canada and moved to Los Angeles.

Reports about the soon-to-be former royals fleeing Canada for the United States before the northern borders close due to the coronavirus started surfacing on Thursday. By Friday, People magazine said a source confirmed to them that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have indeed moved to southern California. (RELATED: Report: Meghan Markle And Kate Middleton’s Alleged Feud Really Between Prince Harry And Prince William)

The source told the magazine that the royals have been living in a secluded compound and reportedly haven’t ventured out during the pandemic. (RELATED: Report: Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Plan To Have At Least One More Child)

The former “Suits” actress and her husband had reportedly been making plans to spend some time in LA, a source previously shared with the magazine.

“Harry is looking straight ahead at his future with his family,” another source shared. “They will be spending time in California…He’s not looking back.”

It all comes after the duke and duchess announced back in January their plans to step away from their senior royal duties and live “financially independent.”

In February, a friend shared with the outlet that now the life of the royals consists of things like hikes in the woods near their $14 million Vancouver Island mansion off the Pacific Coast where they wer raising their nine-month-old son, Archie.

“They both love to be outside and have been loving it there,” explained a friend, adding that the couple is enjoying doing simple things like yoga and walks with their family dogs.

“They are enjoying living a quiet life,” an insider shared with the outlet. “They go for long walks, they do yoga, and Meghan cooks. They are real homebodies who love to chill out with Archie and the dogs.”

It all comes after Queen Elizabeth II issued a statement in January releasing Harry and Meghan of their duties, stating that they are “no longer working members of the Royal Family.” The end of their senior roles becomes official March 31.

Khloe Kardashian Hints That She’s In Quarantine With Her Baby Daddy Tristan Thompson – The Shade Room

The Kardashian sisters had a lot going on last night, as the premiere of their 18th season of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ aired. And chileeeee was it SPICY! Y’all have been seeing little clips here and there of a physical altercation between Kourtney and Kimmy Cakes, but the real tea is miss Khloe Kardashian!

And while Kourt and Kimmy Cakes were throwing hands, Tristan was making his way back into the family, and apparently, he hasn’t left. During the episode, Tristan sat down with Kim and some of her friends, including Winnie Harlow, and they shared a few laughs.

And apparently, Khloe is at home live tweeting the episode, with her quaran-ting, Tristan, right beside her!

I love that tristan is watching this premiere with me and he is now seeing what they say when he’s not around lol AWKWARD!! #KUWTK

— Khloé (@khloekardashian) March 27, 2020

Rumors about the two being quarantined together have been going around for some time now, and now that Khloe has confirmed it, folks may jump to even more conclusions! Some people have already started asking Khloe questions about reconciling with Jordyn since she did so with her baby daddy.

Is Jordyn back in the family too .. I mean if you can forgive him and welcome him back with open arms then I’m sure she’s welcomed back as well. How adorably toxic this all is. You’re raising True to think it’s ok to let a man cheat on her and take him back cuz mommy allowed it.

‘Killing Eve’ Season Three Is Dropping Early, Watch the Trailer Now – Rolling Stone

The next James Bond movie may not be out until November, but those looking for an injection of murder, mystery and mayhem can find solace in Season Three of Killing Eve, which is set to arrive two weeks early. All eight episodes will premiere Sunday, April 12 at 9 p.m. EST on BBC AMERICA and AMC.

“We know how adored this series is and we know how keen people are for great content right now,” Sarah Barnett, president of AMC Networks Entertainment Group and AMC Studios said in a release. “This season of Killing Eve digs deep psychologically, and with actors like Sandra Oh, Jodie Comer and Fiona Shaw the results are nothing short of astonishing. We literally couldn’t wait for fans to see it.”

When last we left assassin Villanelle (Comer) and ex-MI6 operative Eve (Oh), the former had shot the latter and left her for dead after a brief love affair and a complicated job involving a famous tech bigwig. The new trailer finds the assassin enjoying her singledom, curiously dressing as a clown at a child’s birthday party and flouncing around in her characteristically fabulous outfits. Soon, however, she discovers what we suspected all along: Eve is alive. Cue Villanelle’s inextinguishable fury — and passion.

“All seems fine until a shocking and personal death sets them on a collision course yet again,” the release teases. “The journey back to each other will cost both of them friends, family and allegiances…and perhaps a share of their souls.”

Suzanne Heathcote (Fear the Walking Dead) is the lead writer for Season Three of Killing Eve. Phoebe Waller-Bridge of Fleabag fame previously wrote for the show and serves as executive producer. The show is based on the Codename Villanelle novellas by Luke Jennings.

Netflix’s Dragon’s Lair Movie Wants Ryan Reynolds as Dirk the Daring

Netflix is trying to stay in the Ryan Reynolds business, while also looking to get in on the high-profile video game adaptation trend at the same time. The streaming service is currently working on a movie based on the 1980s classic arcade game Dragon Slayer. Reynolds is being eyed not only to star in the movie, but also produce as well.

According to a new report, Ryan Reynolds, star of Deadpool and The Hitman’s Bodyguard, is currently in talks for the project. Should the deal close, Reynolds will star in Dragon’s Lair, as well as produce via his Maximum Effort production company. Roy Lee is also on board as a producer through his company Vertigo Entertainment, as is Trevor Engelson for Underground Films. Don Bluth, Gary Goldman and Jon Pomeroy are also attached as producers. Dan and Kevin Hageman (Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, The LEGO Movie) are set to pen the screenplay. There is no word yet on who might end up in the director’s chair.

It’s said that Netflix spent a year trying to lock down the rights to the game. Dragon’s Lair was created by Rick Dyer and Don Bluth. Released in 1983, it was revolutionary at the time. The arcade game used Laserdisc technology, which made for groundbreaking graphics that were far ahead of their time. The video game has earned its place in pop culture history and has been referenced in several popular shows including Family Guy and Stranger Things. Simply speaking, the game centers on a knight, Dirk the Daring, who is tasked with rescuing Princess Daphne from the evil dragon Singe and a wizard named Mordroc.

Should the project move forward as planned, it would mark the third major collaboration between Ryan Reynolds and Netflix. The streaming service previously worked with the 43-year-old star on 6 Underground, last year’s big-budget Michael Bay action flick, as well as Red Notice, an original thriller from director Rawson Thurber that will also star Dwayne Johnson and Gal Gadot. This also comes at a time when it seems Hollywood has started to crack the code on video game adaptations after years of trial and error. Sonic the Hedgehog recently did well both critically and commercially, as did 2019’s Detective Pikachu. Coincidentally, the Pokemon flick featured Reynolds as the voice of Pikachu.

This will also mark the second collaboration between Dan and Kevin Hageman and Ryan Reynolds. The Hagemans penned the screenplay for The Croods 2, which is currently set to arrive in theaters in December. Reynolds also has the 20th Century Studios action/comedy Free Guy on deck. At present, it’s set to arrive in July, but given the uncertainty floating around Hollywood right now, that date could shift. Reynolds has also completed The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard, a sequel to the 2017 comedy co-starring Samuel L. Jackson and Salma Hayek, which is slated for August. This news comes to us via The Hollywood Reporter.

Rammstein’s Till Lindemann admitted to hospital, tests negative for coronavirus | Louder

Rammstein have issued a statement to say that frontman Till Lindemann does not have coronavirus. 

The move comes after widely-shared reports in German newspaper Bild claimed that the singer had tested positive for the virus. Rammstein do confirm, however, that Lindemann was admitted to hospital yesterday.

In a short statement on Facebook, the band say, “Yesterday evening Till Lindemann was admitted to a hospital on the band’s doctor’s advice. He spent the night in intensive care but has been moved as he is feeling better. Till has tested negative for the coronavirus.”

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and restrictions ushered in by the Russian and Tatar authorities, the last three dates of Lindemann‘s Russian tour in Perm, Kazan and Voronez were cancelled last week. The band and promoters have promised to ensure that the shows happen at a later date.

Rammstein’s summer dates in Europe and North America are still scheduled to go ahead.

Bob Dylan: Murder Most Foul review – a dark, dense ballad for the end times | Music | The Guardian

As with pretty much anything Bob Dylan does these days, you can only speculate at his reasons for unexpectedly releasing a 17-minute song, ostensibly about the assassination of John F Kennedy, that gradually turns into a litany of cultural references taking in everything from Shakespeare to Stevie Nicks to silent-movie comedians, from the Moonlight Sonata to Jelly Roll Morton to A Nightmare on Elm Street.

And – as with pretty much anything Bob Dylan has ever done – speculate people have. They’ve suggested it’s a harbinger of his first album of original material since 2012. That it’s an outtake from his last album of original songs, Tempest, that’s noticeably better than anything on Tempest, and Dylan has form in leaving the best song off an album: this is, after all, the man who came to the conclusion that Shot of Love was better without Caribbean Wind on it, and Infidels somehow improved by removing Blind Willie McTell.

People have mooted that it’s a standalone release, appearing now because Dylan understandably thinks it’s timely, March 2020 being a pretty apropos moment to release an epic song filled with death and horror and apocalyptic dread (“The age of the antichrist has just begun … it’s 36 hours past judgment day”), or perhaps to give his diehard fans further incentive to stay indoors. You rather get the feeling some of them will still be self-isolating months after the coronavirus all-clear has sounded, delicately unpicking its manifold knotty allusions – the line about playing it for Carl Wilson down Gower Avenue requires the listener to know that the late Beach Boy sang backing vocals on Desperados Under the Eaves, the concluding track from Warren Zevon’s eponymous 1976 album, which ended with the line “look away down Gower Avenue” – and arguing on message boards as to whether the Susie mentioned midway through is just a reference to the Everly Brothers, or to Suze Rotolo, the girlfriend with whom Dylan watched the aftermath of Kennedy assassination unfolding, holed up in their New York apartment.

For a song that lasts 17 minutes, there isn’t a great deal to Murder Most Foul musically. The arrangement hovers atmospherically in the distance, a haze of tumbling piano, lightly struck drums and violin, its softness at odds with the tone of the lyrics. One comparison currently being bandied about is to Don McLean’s American Pie, itself a kind of bubblegum populist take on Dylan’s oblique referential songs of the 60s, but American Pie had a catchy tune and a singalong chorus. Here, there’s nothing that even vaguely resembles a standard structure and Dylan swiftly abandons any pretence of there being a vocal melody: it’s essentially a recitation set to music.

The point is clearly the lyrics, which are dense and intriguing enough to hold your interest, and give the listener plenty to digest. Quite aside from all the cultural references, there’s a narrator that keeps switching from Kennedy himself to Dylan, who in turn seems to keep switching from firebrand mode to the grimly resigned old grouch of Things Have Changed and It’s All Good (“I hate to tell you Mister but only dead men are free”) and a plethora of details about the assassination itself: “Don’t say Dallas don’t love you, Mr President” is a mangling of the last words spoken to Kennedy by Nellie Connally, the first lady of Texas.

The JFK assassination looms large in Dylan’s history, despite his assurance that “I didn’t feel it more than anybody else … the whole thing about my reaction to the assassination is overplayed”. Certainly, it bothered him enough to give a rambling speech at an awards ceremony shortly afterwards saying he “saw something of himself” in Lee Harvey Oswald. (He was roundly booed.) He also subsequently visited the assassination site and indeed wrote about it, albeit in a sheaf of unpublished typescripts that were auctioned in the 90s. And it’s clearly been bothering him more recently: a 2012 exhibition of his paintings featured one of Oswald and one of Oswald’s killer, Jack Ruby.

Is the litany of music, film and literature that consumes the song’s second half intended to suggest its author thinks art is a meaningless distraction at moments of tragedy, or vitally important? The condescending tone of “Hush little children, you’ll understand / the Beatles are coming, they want to hold your hand” implies the former, although the very timing of Murder Most Foul’s release suggests it’s the latter. It also suggests an artist nearing 80, but continually moving forward – musically, it’s unlike anything Dylan has done before – and as wilfully contrary as ever.

“If I was more sensitive about it than anyone else, I would have written a song about it, wouldn’t I?” he protested in 1971 when asked about the Kennedy assassination. Now he has.
