    Hollywood may be sued due to the lack of women film directors

    Issues in Hollywood range largely between race and gender, and it seems the latter could be about to challenged with discrimination laws. There’s no denying that the American film industry seems to be heavily populated by a specific gender and ethnicity of person, resulting in an outcry when, as per the Oscars 2016, it was dominated by white nominees and had virtually no other skin colour or ethnicity represented. According to Deadline, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has concluded that Hollywood is guilty in discrimination against female directors, and plan to take action.

    The tragic real life of Sloth from The Goonies

    Lovable ‘Goonies’ giant Sloth is about as iconic a movie character as it’s possible to be, but the man behind the make-up lived a tragic life worthy of its own Hollywood story. Every time a noteworthy anniversary rolls around, it’s fun to catch up with the stars of Richard Donner’s seminal 80s adventure 'The Goonies’. The young cast had more than its fair share of characters: from a teenage Josh Brolin to an already-famous Corey Feldman to proto-hobbit Sean Astin, 'The Goonies’ – now 30 years old – feels like one of those dyed-in-the-wool genre classics, the kind you just can’t make any more.

    Four different directors, almost 10 years in the making and costing an alleged £100million, yet ‘Empires of the Deep’, China’s planned answer to ‘Avatar’, remains unreleased. “I think I’m the only one who’s seen it other than the creators,” says actor Steve Polites, who signed a three month contract in 2009 to play the hero of ‘Empires of the Deep’ (and weirdly two other characters), only to find himself still stuck in China nine months later. “[Jon has] a really good heart and the core of a great idea, but couldn’t let go of it,” says Mark Byers, a Hollywood veteran who came on in late 2007 as a producer to try and help.
