Murder, She Wrote, is being remade, and let’s just say it’s not Angela Lansbury’s…cup of tea. GET IT???
No, but seriously, she seems pissed. Here’s what she said about the whole thing, via LA Times:
I think it’s a mistake to call it ‘Murder, She Wrote,’ because ‘Murder, She Wrote’ will always be about a Cabot Cove and this wonderful little group of people who told those lovely stories and enjoyed a piece of that place, and also enjoyed Jessica Fletcher, who is a rare and very individual kind of person. So I’m sorry that they have to use the title ‘Murder, She Wrote,’ even though they have access to it and it’s their right.
YEAH THAT’S RIGHT, WE’RE BRINGING YOU ANGELA LANSBURY GOSSIP. Don’t pretend some of y’all don’t love Murder, She Wrote. Are you gonna watch the remake?

Yes, daughter. I quadruple read this announcement of Angela’s casting in Adaline to make sure that I was comprehending it correctly.
The movie’s about a woman who was killed in a car accident, but was resurrected by a shock of lightening. The car crash/lightening combo left her forever in her 20s, hence her looking like Katherine Heigl but having a daughter Angela Lansbury’s age.
To be totally frank, this movie sounds like a shitfest and my worst nightmare. I hate magical stuff. This sounds like Powder meets Practical Magic meets Benjamin Button, and I could live my whole life never seeing either of those movies again. But still, Angela Lansbury is a national treasure. She’s my favorite person ever. Will I see this movie? Yes. But only for Angela.
Legendary actress Angela Lansbury made an appearance at the Broadway opening of Gypsy.
Also there: Lauren Bacall, who is just way fucking scary right now. I’m sure she’s a very nice person, but, Jesus, Lauren, there’s a time and a place for a low-cut V-neck and, for you, that time was at some point during the early years of Prohibition.
