Jenna Dewan has stunned fans by showcasing her post-baby body in a black swimsuit.

The 39-year-old star, who welcomed son Callum back in March, posted a snap on her Instagram Stories which saw her enjoying the sunshine in her backyard while posing in a plunging one-piece.

“Thank you @sarafoster @summersalt for my new favorite (sic) swimsuit to live in at home,” she wrote over the picture.

Sara Foster, who recently became an investor and adviser at sustainable swimwear brand Summersalt after creating her own capsule collection last year, reposted the photo on her own Instagram Stories.

“How does a human look like this? You are stunning @jennadewan in your @summersalt suit,” she wrote, alongside three love heart emojis.

In the snap, the Step Up star is wearing one of the brand’s bestselling pieces, The Plunge swimsuit, available in seven colourways and priced at $95 (£75).

It’s not the first time that the dancer has shared a racy swimwear picture on social media, as she’s been posting snaps of her splashing about in the pool rocking a sheer one-piece.

Jenna announced she and fiancee Steve Kazee had welcomed their first child together, son Callum Michael Rebel Kazee, on 6 March.

The pair began dating in October, 2018 after she split from ex-husband Channing Tatum, with whom she shares seven-year-old daughter Everly.

Jenna and Broadway star Steve reportedly got engaged at her surprise baby shower in February, in front of their close friends and family.

Channing Tatum is “proud” to be making his directorial debut with a road trip movie named Dog.

To celebrate the North American rights to the movie being sold by MGM, the Magic Mike star took to social media on Monday to confirm the project.

“A little over a year ago, I got back from a road trip where I said goodbye to my best friend. Now I’m making a movie inspired by her,” he wrote, alongside three pictures of him with dogs. “So proud to announce that DOG will be released by @mgm_studios and in theaters next Valentine’s Day weekend.”

Dog is a road trip comedy that follows former Army Rangers paired against their will – Briggs, played by Tatum, and a Belgian Malinois named Lulu – as they race down the Pacific Coast in hopes of making it to a soldier’s funeral on time. According to Variety, along the way, they’ll drive each other crazy, confront the possibility that pet psychics are real, and “begin to reckon with the one thing they were trained never to do: surrender”.

In addition to starring in the film, Tatum will also co-direct with his longtime creative partner Reid Carolin, who wrote the script based on a story developed by himself and Brett Rodriguez. Gregory Jacobs will produce along with Peter Kiernan and Rodriguez for Free Association, the company run by Tatum and Carolin.

The project was first announced in November when the duo presented its vision at the American Film Market (AFM). The North American rights reportedly sold to MGM after an aggressive bidding war with multiple major studios.

The film will start production this May.

Nikki Reed helped Steve Kazee create the engagement ring he gave to Jenna Dewan.

The Step Up actress and Steve, who are expecting their first child together, announced their engagement on Instagram on Tuesday by sharing a photo of them kissing as Jenna showed off her ring, which features a gold band and massive diamond.

Following the announcement, their friend Nikki revealed on her Instagram Stories that the engagement ring was from her sustainable and ethical jewellery brand BaYou With Love, which she co-founded in 2017.

“An honour to be a very small part of this special moment,” she wrote besides the couple’s engagement announcement snap. “I love you both, and all I can say is your love is pure magic. I might be biased, but that ring is gorgeoussssss (sic)! Steve, making this with you was such a beautiful experience. Thank you for loving Jenna the way you do.”

Jenna shared the Twilight actress’s post on her own Instagram Stories timeline, as well as a picture of the moment Steve got down on one knee and opened a small wooden box to reveal the engagement ring. Her face is hidden in the snap, but she can be seen throwing her hands up in shock.

In her original announcement, the 39-year-old wrote in the caption, “A lifetime to love and grow with you…you have my heart,” with a love heart emoji, and Nikki wrote in the comments, “Congratulations to two of the most beautiful people on the planet. Forever and ever.”

Jenna was previously married to Magic Mike star Channing Tatum from 2009 to 2018. They share a six-year-old daughter named Everly.

Channing Tatum is to serve as the leading man in Disney’s upcoming project, Bob the Musical.

The Magic Mike actor will be playing the titular character in the comedy, which follows a man named Bob who, after a blow to the head, can suddenly hear the inner songs of everyone’s hearts.

Channing will be producing alongside Tripp Vinson, Beau Flynn, Chris Bender, Reid Carolin, and Peter Kiernan.

The 39-year-old, who recently reconciled with girlfriend Jessie J after a brief split, hasn’t appeared in a live-action movie since Kingsman: The Golden Circle back in 2017, but has voiced characters in animated features including Smallfoot and The Lego Movie 2.

He is also set to star in the upcoming romantic drama Soundtrack of Silence and is being eyed to appear in Dexter Fletcher’s monster movie Renfield.

Bob the Musical has been in development since 2004, with several filmmakers and scriptwriters attached at different points.

Directors Michel Hazanavicius, Phil Lord, Chris Miller, and Adam Shankman have all circled the project, while writing duties have been passed through the likes of Michael Chabon, Allan Loeb, and Mike Bender.

Songwriting duo Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who won an Academy Award for their work on Disney’s Frozen, along with Flight of the Conchords’ co-creator and star Bret McKenzie have all reportedly been hired at various stages to pen the score and songs.

And at one time, Tom Cruise was also rumoured to be interested in the long-gestating concept.

Kate Hudson is looking to make a splash in the liquor industry with her own craft vodka brand.

The How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days star has created King St. Vodka, described as an “ultra-premium spirit” hand-crafted in Santa Barbara, California, after realising this particular corner of the market is one dominated by male entrepreneurs.

Hudson explained how the idea came about in a new Instagram post announcing her latest venture, writing, “After a particularly long day, I decided to host an impromptu cocktail party with my closest friends.

“As I prepared to whip up a batch of dirty vodka martinis I surveyed my bar, but I wasn’t 100 per cent happy with my options. Then I wondered, ‘Are any of these vodkas founded by women?’ I did some research, they weren’t. So, I decided to make my own just the way I like it! @KingStVodka #KingStVodka.”

In additional marketing materials, the actress revealed that the brand is named after the New York City street on which she once lived, “where many of my most precious memories were made”.

A release date has yet to be announced, but Hudson promises fans the seven-times distilled liquor, which is free of gluten and distilled with alkaline water, is “insanely delicious” and “best served with good company”.

“The creative side of me thought it would be a fun challenge to develop a vodka for my palate, and in a beautiful package that I would love to have on my bar and share with friends. The businessperson in me is now looking forward to the challenge of building a brand in an entirely new industry,” the 40-year-old added.

Hudson is the latest celebrity to unveil her own vodka brand – rap mogul Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is behind the Ciroc label, actor Channing Tatum launched the Born and Bred line in 2017, and country star Blake Shelton owns Smithworks Vodka.

Crazy Rich Asians star Henry Golding is reportedly in talks to be the leading man in the G.I. Joe spin-off Snake Eyes.

The 32-year-old is in negotiations to portray the titular character in the latest instalment of the action franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Snake Eyes first appeared as part of the G.I. Joe toy line in the 1980s, and was the leader of a gang of military members fighting terrorism and his arch-enemy Storm Shadow, a ninja who is also his blood brother.

The character, who dressed all in black, never revealed his face and never spoke, and was played by stuntman Ray Park in the big-screen adventures starring Channing Tatum.

Snake Eyes will reportedly centre on his quest for revenge after his father’s death which sees him joining a ninja clan, beginning his journey to finding acceptance.

The Time Traveler’s Wife director Robert Schwentke will helm the new project, with Evan Spiliotopoulos penning the script, and Brian Goldner, from toy company Hasbro, and Lorenzo di Bonaventura among the producers.

The first film inspired by the popular Hasbro toys was 2009’s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, featuring Channing Tatum, Sienna Miller, Dennis Quaid and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, followed by 2013’s G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which also starred Tatum as well as Dwayne Johnson and Bruce Willis.

Golding made his feature film debut as Nick Young in last year’s Crazy Rich Asians and has gone on to land leading roles in upcoming romantic comedy Last Christmas, with Emilia Clarke and Emma Thompson, and Guy Ritchie’s crime thriller The Gentlemen, with Matthew McConaughey and Hugh Grant.

Gambit movie pulled from release schedule

Disney executives have seemingly shelved the Gambit movie, after failing to mention the title in the latest Disney-Fox release schedule.

Bosses from the two studios, which merged earlier this year after Disney acquired Fox, announced the upcoming theatrical releases for the next few years on Tuesday.

While fans were excited at getting Star Wars, Avatar and Marvel updates, one film was noticeably absent from the announcement – Gambit.

Channing Tatum has been attached to play the Marvel Comics character since 2014, and over the years has frequently spoken about the film. However, a director has been harder to find, with Rupert Wyatt, Doug Liman, and Gore Verbinski all drafted in to take the helm, before departing the project.

The character has so far only made one appearance in the X-Men universe, popping up in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine, though it was Taylor Kitsch, not Channing, playing the part.

It was last slated for release in March 2020, but Gambit’s future was thrown into turmoil during Disney the Fox merger.

In the wake of the deal being completed, Gambit producer Simon Kinberg, the director behind upcoming X-Men instalment Dark Phoenix, shared his hope that the film would still be going ahead.

“I love the idea of Channing playing Gambit,” he said in March. “I think we have a great script for it and I think it’s a role he was born to play. It’s a character I grew up loving and I know the fans love. So I suspect, I hope it will happen.”

Among the movies that got a release date are three as-yet-untitled Star Wars films, which will hit cinemas on 16 December 2022; 20 December 2024; and 18 December 2026, and the long-awaited Avatar follow-ups, the first of which arrives later than expected on 17 December 2021. The James Cameron-directed features will then drop over the holiday period every other year until 2027.

Simon Kinberg optimistic Gambit will be made after Disney acquisition

Filmmaker Simon Kinberg is remaining optimistic about the future of his stalled Gambit movie, insisting Channing Tatum was “born to play” the titular superhero.

The Marvel comics film has been in development for years, but the project has faced a string of setbacks, forcing directors Rupert Wyatt and Doug Liman to each pull out due to scheduling conflicts.

Gore Verbinski was tapped to take over the 20th Century Fox movie in 2017, and it was even given a planned release date of February, 2019, but production on Gambit was put on hold as Disney bosses began the acquisition of Fox.

The massive deal has since been officially completed, but it’s left a string of Fox films in limbo as Disney officials begin sorting through the ones they want to keep and the ones set to be tossed.

“All of the movies at Fox are being evaluated,” producer Simon Kinberg tells Variety.

However, he is hopeful that Tatum will get to don the X-Men character’s costume in the near future, because the Magic Mike star is the perfect person to take on the role.

“I love the idea of Channing playing Gambit,” shares Kinberg, who made his directorial debut with the upcoming X-Men movie Dark Phoenix. “I think we have a great script for it and I think it’s a role he was born to play. It’s a character I grew up loving and I know the fans love. So I suspect, I hope it will happen.”

Channing won’t be the first actor to portray Gambit in a live-action release – Taylor Kitsch played the mutant superhero in 2009’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine.

Channing Tatum has surprised fans by unveiling a bold new hair colour and style.

The Magic Mike actor took to his Instagram Stories on Tuesday (19Mar19) to post a selfie showing him pointing to his fresh buzz cut and platinum blond dye job.

Adding a poll button, Channing wrote, “Bad idea? Haha,” and allowed options for “Yes” and “No.”

In spite of asking for opinions, in a follow-up post, he indicated that he will be sticking with his blond hair as he captioned the snap: “Well, bad ideas are sort of my thing. So…”

It is not clear when Channing bleached his naturally brown hair as he was seen sporting a black cap in recent paparazzi photos, in which he was spotted with new girlfriend Jessie J.

However, the makeover has divided the 38-year-old’s followers. Many praised the look, with one user writing, “Love the new hair! Looks great!” and another commenting, “Channing can do no wrong.”

A third noted, “I didn’t know I needed blond @channingtatum until I saw him.”

Though many users made comparisons between Channing’s hair and Eminem’s signature look.

“Will the Real Slim Shady please stand up,” one person wrote, referring to the rapper’s 2000 song, another added: “I’m not emotionally ready to talk about Channing Tatum going blond.”

Channing has mostly stuck with his brown hair for movie roles in recent years, though he did show off lighter hair while visiting Peru with his then-wife Jenna Dewan in late 2015 and shaved his head for 2009 movie G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.

Other celebrity men to recently try out platinum blond hair include Justin Bieber, Chris Messina, Riz Ahmed, Pete Davidson, and Zac Efron.
