Pink is sporting an uneven buzz cut after deciding to give her hair a trim during a drunken night in self-isolation.

The What About Us singer is currently holed up at home in the U.S. with husband Carey Hart and kids Jameson, three, and Willow, eight, in an effort to avoid spreading the contagious Covid-19 virus.

While suffering from boredom during the indefinite self-isolation, Pink decided to try her hand at hair styling – after coming up with the idea following a few drinks.

She recalled the incident in a video posted to Instagram on Tuesday, telling followers: “When I drink, I get really, really brilliant ideas, and last night, I got an idea – ‘I can cut hair! I can totally cut hair! Why have I been paying people all this time?'”

She then pulled up the side of her beanie hat to reveal two patches of hair which were shaved a little closer to her head than the rest.

“Look what I did,” the Grammy-winning singer asked. “What do you think? A good look?”

Laughing off her mishap, she added: “I think I’m looking pretty good! Am I giving like, Alyssa Milano vibes right now? Charlize Theron? I don’t know. I might try to fix it tonight. What do you think?”

Signing off on the video, the singer declared: “Stay safe. Stay home. Cut your own hair! Screw it!”

Pink jokingly captioned the post, “Hair cuts and drinking… Quarantine diaries.”

And she’s not the only one to reach for the clippers during self-isolation, as Captain America star Chris Evans was recruited by his younger brother to shave his head.

Scott Evans took to Instagram to reveal his new buzz cut, and in a video later shared on Twitter, the Avengers: Endgame actor can be seen tentatively shaving his sibling’s head.

Chris Evans is reportedly circling the lead role in Scott Derrickson’s upcoming Bermuda Triangle thriller.

The Doctor Strange director dropped out of making Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness due to creative differences in January. However, Derrickson has now found his next project, with editors at Variety reporting that he has signed on to rewrite and direct Bermuda, with fellow Marvel star Evans reportedly in the frame for the lead.

Plot details for the movie are top secret, but it will be set in the mysterious patch of the Caribbean where planes and ships have gone missing over the years.

Derrickson retweeted the news and told his Twitter followers he was thrilled to be reuniting with his writing partner C. Robert Cargill to redraft the script.

“Very happy to be back writing with my genius partner @Massawyrm – more news soon to come,” he wrote.

The project has been in development at Skydance since 2013, with Spider-Man director Sam Raimi circling the film at one stage. Coincidentally, Raimi is now helming the Doctor Strange sequel following Derrickson’s departure.

After the news was announced, screenwriters and producers Mark Swift and Damian Shannon tweeted, “To clarify, this is an original project of ours we set up at @skydance almost a decade ago. It’s a story we’ve always been passionate about and we know @scottderrickson and @Massawyrm and @ChrisEvans are gonna hit it out of the park. We need more original movies! #bermudatriangle.”

Derrickson will also executive produce Bermuda alongside producers David Ellison, Dana Goldberg, Don Granger, Bonnie Curtis, and Julie Lynn.

Evans is yet to confirm his involvement in the project. He was recently seen in Rian Johnson’s whodunnit Knives Out and will soon star in Apple TV series Defending Jacob. He is also attached to play dentist Orin Scrivello in the Little Shop of Horrors remake.

Rian Johnson: ‘Apple bosses won’t let bad guys use iPhones in films’

Rian Johnson has claimed Apple executives won’t allow bad characters to be seen using iPhones in films.

The Star Wars: The Last Jedi director shared the filmmaking secret during a video interview with Vanity Fair in which he broke down a pivotal scene in his recent Agatha Christie-style whodunnit, Knives Out, which revolves around Daniel Craig’s detective Benoit Blanc investigating who killed crime novelist Harlan Thrombey.

He shed light on making the scene in which all the members of the Thrombey family converge in the mansion for the first time following Harlan’s death and revealed that you can tell who the villain of the piece is by looking at their mobile devices, as there is a reason why several characters were seen using an iPhone onscreen and one, in particular, was not.

“I don’t know if I should say this or not,” he said. “Not because it’s lascivious or something, but because it’s gonna screw me on the next mystery movie that I write. But forget it, I’ll say it, it’s very interesting. Apple, they let you use iPhones in movies, but, and this is very pivotal, if you’re ever watching a mystery movie, bad guys cannot have iPhones on camera. Every single filmmaker who has a bad guy in their movie that’s supposed to be a secret wants to murder me right now.”

Knives Out, which also starred Ana de Armas, Chris Evans, and Jamie Lee Curtis, was a critical and commercial success following its release in November.

It was recently announced that Johnson, who was nominated for Best Original Screenplay at this year’s Oscars, was working on a sequel that will follow Blanc as he investigates a new murder.

Chris Evans is in talks to play crazed dentist Orin Scrivello in the upcoming remake of musical comedy Little Shop of Horrors.

The 38-year-old is reportedly set to star as the sadistic character, made famous by Steve Martin in the 1986 adaptation of the hit stage musical, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton, and Billy Porter are also circling the project, which will be directed by Greg Berlanti, and production is set to begin this summer.

The Captain America star seemingly confirmed his upcoming role on Twitter on Monday, as he shared a link to The Hollywood Reporter article and captioned it with a tooth emoji.

Back in March, the actor told the outlet he was desperate to star in a musical and said his dream role would be the maniacal dentist in Little Shop of Horrors.

“I want to do a musical so badly, man. Someone told me they’re (remaking) Little Shop of Horrors and I was like, ‘Oh, can I be down? Please? Can I be the dentist?'” he said at the time.

Little Shop of Horrors follows the story of florist shop worker Seymour, who discovers his Venus flytrap can speak and sing. He names it after his co-worker Audrey, who is in an abusive relationship with her boyfriend, dentist Orin. But as Audrey II begins to grow rapidly, Seymour begins feeding the killer plant human victims.

Negotiations are still ongoing for Rocketman star Egerton, who is up for the role of Seymour, and Johansson, who will reportedly play Audrey, but Porter has already signed a deal to lend his vocal talents to the Venus flytrap, according to the outlet.

The movie would serve as a reunion for Evans and his Avengers co-star Johansson, who last appeared together in last year’s Avengers: Endgame.

John Krasinski keen to play Mr. Fantastic in Fantastic Four reboot

John Krasinski would love to play Mr. Fantastic in a possible reboot of the Fantastic Four.

The 40-year-old famously lost out on the role of Captain America to Chris Evans back in 2010, but the actor/director hasn’t given up hope on starring in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Krasinski first expressed his desire to play scientist Reed Richards, who transforms into Mr. Fantastic after being exposed to cosmic radiation in space, almost two years ago.

And in an interview with Total Film, he revealed he’s still hopeful he’ll be able to play the superhero on the big screen one day.

“I would love to be in the Marvel Universe. I love those movies because they’re fun, but I also think they’re really well done. And certainly, a lot of my friends are in those movies,” Krasinski explained. “I have no idea what (Marvel) are thinking. But if they are considering me for Mr. Fantastic, continue to consider me because I would love it.”

But The Office star, who made his directorial debut with critically-acclaimed horror A Quiet Place in 2018, ruled himself out of helming a Marvel blockbuster in the future.

“Oh man, directing one of those things? I don’t think I’m your guy. But if I was to act in one? I’d have so much fun,” he laughed.

Marvel producers have not yet formally announced a reboot of the beleaguered Fantastic Four franchise, but rumours have swirled since Disney acquired 20th Century Fox last year.

The most recent adaptation of the comic book was back in 2015. However, the flick, which starred Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell, and Kate Mara, was mauled by critics and flopped at the box office.

Rian Johnson’s Knives Out sequel to feature whole new cast

Rian Johnson wants Daniel Craig’s detective Benoit Blanc to investigate a whole new cast of characters in the upcoming Knives Out sequel.

The inquiries of the British actor’s Southern sleuth proved a hit with audiences last year, with Johnson already starting work on a follow-up to his whodunnit movie.

Speaking to Variety at the Oscars on Sunday, the Looper filmmaker confirmed that while Craig would return, no one else from the original cast, which included Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, and Lakeith Stanfield would reprise their roles.

“It’s going to be Daniel (Craig) playing Benoit Blanc, the detective. Other than that, all bets are off. It’s a totally new cast,” he said.

Asked about who might replace them, he hinted at another all-star cast, adding: “I want everybody! Just point. Throw a rock on this red carpet and you’ll hit someone that I want in the movie.”

Knives Out has taken almost $300 (£233 million) in cinemas across the globe since it opened last November, and Johnson previously discussed wanting to create a Knives Out franchise.

“I would love to. We’ll see how this one does, you know. But if this movie does alright, if I can get together with Daniel every few years and do a new Benoit Blanc mystery? New location, new cast, new mystery. It’d be so much fun,” the filmmaker told Screen Rant.

Knives Out sequel officially in the works

Lionsgate executives have confirmed a sequel to Rian Johnson’s whodunnit Knives Out is a go.

The murder mystery, which stars an ensemble cast including Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Ana de Armas, has grossed nearly $300 million (£232 million) worldwide since its release in November.

Johnson had previously expressed interest in making a sequel and reports have been swirling suggesting he was already working on a script, but the sequel was officially confirmed by Lionsgate chief executive Jon Feltheimer during an earnings conference call on Thursday, according to Deadline.

The Star Wars: The Last Jedi director told the publication in January he would be happy to continue the story.

“I had such a good time making it, such a great time working with Daniel, and now just seeing that audiences are responding to it, the idea of continuing it on seems like it would just be a blast,” he said. “But there’s a lot that has to happen before that can happen, first and foremost being writing a script. So, we’ll see.”

Johnson’s producing partner Ram Bergman also shared with The Hollywood Reporter that James Bond star Craig was eager to reprise the central role of private detective Benoit Blanc in another Agatha Christie-inspired film.

“Daniel had so much fun doing it, and he wants to do more,” Bergman said.

Knives Out has been a commercial and critical hit. It was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards, including Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, and Johnson has been nominated for an Oscar, BAFTA, Critics’ Choice Award, and Writer Guild of America (WGA) Award for Best Original Screenplay. At the Critics’ Choice Awards, he was beaten by Quentin Tarantino for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, while at the BAFTAs and WGAs, he lost out to Bong Joon Ho for Parasite. The Oscars take place on Sunday.

Rian Johnson is planning to film a sequel to his hit murder mystery movie Knives Out in 2020.

The comic thriller, which stars an ensemble cast including Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Toni Collette, grossed nearly $250 million (£190 million) worldwide on a $40 million (£30.4 million) budget when it was released in November.

And according to editors at The Hollywood Reporter, Johnson revealed plans for a quick follow-up at a pre-Golden Globes party on the weekend, claiming he already has a script in development.

Johnson’s producing partner Ram Bergman also shared that Craig was eager to reprise the central role of private detective Benoit Blanc in the sequel.

“Daniel had so much fun doing it, and he wants to do more,” Bergman said.

The Looper filmmaker previously revealed that he enjoyed working with the 007 actor so much, he’d love him to return to the role.

“He was very excited to do it,” Johnson told Variety. “I never write with any actors in mind. You just get your heart broken. I just wrote the character very straight. I gave him a Southern (U.S.) accent to make him a fish out of water. Daniel was top of my list, but I didn’t think he was available.”

Craig is set to wrap up his stint portraying James Bond in No Time to Die, his fifth outing as the spy. The film, which also features his Knives Out co-star Ana de Armas, debuts in April.

Scarlett Johansson had no idea Marvel executives were going to release the trailer for her Black Widow movie this week.

The actress, who starred as Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow in the Avengers films and now fronts her own standalone movie, was left blindsided when studio bosses dropped the first trailer on Monday without telling her first, and she only found out from Captain America star Chris Evans.

“Nobody told me it was coming out,” Scarlett said during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday night. “I actually woke up and I got a text from Chris Evans and he was like, ‘The trailer looks great.’ I don’t know what he was doing up at 5am, that’s a whole other story, but I was as excited as everybody else. I had no idea it was coming out. They didn’t tell me, they keep everything from me.”

Scarlett also confirmed that the Black Widow movie will be set between 2016’s Captain America: Civil War and 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War.

And while fans have been desperate for a standalone film about the mysterious character, the screen star insisted the timing wasn’t right for the project until recently.

“A lot of people told me the film should have happened before and they’re wondering if it’s too late for this movie now, but I could not have told this movie 10 years ago,” the 35-year-old said. “My journey with Natasha has informed this film… It has a complexity to it that’s just delicious. Not to say that it wouldn’t have been entertaining 10 years ago, but we get to do stuff now that’s just good… It’s a homecoming.”

Black Widow, also featuring David Harbour, Florence Pugh, and Rachel Weisz, is slated to hit U.S. cinemas on 1 May 2020.

Jamie Lee Curtis has issued a stern warning to moviegoers who spoil the ending of her new murder mystery Knives Out.

The True Lies star is worried Thanksgiving Day viewers might reveal the film’s twists and turns and ruin the experience for others, accusing them of being on a “weird power trip”.

“There’s also something very aggressive, I find, for people who spoil things for people,” Curtis told Entertainment Weekly. “In fact, it diminishes you greatly if you really think about it, because it makes you very small to ruin the delicious surprise.

“To ruin it so you somehow look like a smart person? I don’t even know what value ruining a surprise is. It’s like going up to somebody (and) going, ‘Oh, you’re going to have a surprise party’. Well, f**k you. Thank you so much for ruining what should be a pleasure, and it is a pleasure, so don’t ruin it.”

Curtis, who stars in Rian Johnson’s crime caper opposite Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana De Armas, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Michael Shannon, and Katherine Langford, is cautioning anyone looking to reveal key plot points in the whodunnit.

“I shall come for you,” the 61-year-old jokingly threatened.

Meanwhile, Craig has declared that he would love to be able to go see Knives Out without knowing anything about it.

“Going to this movie cold would be the best thing on earth,” he told the publication.

Knives Out follows a family gathering gone horribly awry, after the family patriarch’s death leads a master detective to investigate. It is now showing in cinemas.
