TAYLOR SWIFT NETFLIX DOCUMENTARY ‘MISS AMERICANA’ GETS RELEASE DATE – (01/16/2020)
Taylor Swift’s Netflix documentary Miss Americana now has a release date: January 31st.
The Lana Wilson-directed film will first premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 23rd.
The description of the almost 90-minute feature reads, “In this revealing documentary, Taylor Swift embraces her role as a songwriter and performer – and as a woman harnessing the full power of her voice.”
On Wednesday, Swift revealed the official movie poster via social media, which features a modest side portrait of her looking down at the spaced-out title font in front of a simple black background.
Swift first announced a documentary was in the works in November while discussing her ongoing feud with Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta, who own the rights to the singer’s old music masters. She claimed the pair had “declined the use of my older music or performance footage for this project, even though there is no mention of either of them or [Braun’s label] Big Machine Records anywhere in the film.”
Big Machine Records publicly stated they were not blocking Swift from using her old music in the documentary, nor during her American Music Award performance where she was honored as their Artist of the Decade. Everything worked out for Swift at the ceremony, and Big Machine Records has publicly stated they have cleared the use of her music for the documentary.

‘JAMES BOND’ PRODUCER SAYS ROLE IS MALE-EXCLUSIVE – (01/16/2020)
The internet may want Charlize Theron to play James Bond, but it isn’t going to happen, producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson briskly inform Variety.
Daniel Craig is exiting his successful tenure as 007 in the $250 million No Time to Die, his fifth time playing the beloved spy. The film drops in April.
So with Craig out, who’s in? Theron has been floated, as have Idris Elba and Richard Madden. Broccoli and Wilson insist that the search has not begun, but that certain requirements must be met.
Broccoli said: “He can be of any color, but he is male. I believe we should be creating new characters for women — strong female characters. I’m not particularly interested in taking a male character and having a woman play it. I think women are far more interesting than that.”
