Hollywood News
New Spike Lee Joint Coming Soon
Filmmaker Spike Lee's latest work tells the story of a real-life American hero. 
 "BlacKkKlansman" follows Ron Stallworth, the first ever African American detective in Colorado Springs as he infiltrates the Ku Klux Klan. 
John David Washington (Denzel's son) stars as Stallworth and Adam Driver plays Stallworth's partner.
As well as Washington and Driver, there is an impressive cast including Topher Grace, Cory Hawkins and Isiah Whitlock Jr.

On top of the fact that this is an incredibly inspiring true story, Jordan Peele is producing - the combination of both visionary filmmakers is getting us super excited for this flick!

 "BlacKkKlansman" is set to be in select cinemas in August, so you have a bit of a wait, but here's the trailer for a sneak peek!

Vin Diesel to Head Another Franchise
You could call him the king of franchises - Vin Diesel has made a name starring in sequel upon sequel throughout his career. We are all familiar with his role as Dom in the "Fast and the Furious" movies, and as Xander Cage in "XxX" and now it seems there is another blockbuster franchise in the pipeline.

Diesel's production company, One Race Films, is collaborating with STX Entertainment to create "Muscle".  We don't have information in terms of plot lines, or of fellow cast members yet, but we do know it is set to be a comedy-action and, of course, Vin Diesel will be the lead.

Will "Muscle" have the success of the "Fast and the Furious" movies?  What do you think?  Let us know what you think in the comments!
