Homeless woman takes Amanda Bynes and Halle Berry to court to sell her script

This is a bit of a weird one, I have to admit, and I don’t really know where to start. A homeless woman in Los Angeles has filed an insane lawsuit against a bunch of Hollywood stars including Amanda Bynes, Halle Berry, Armie Hammer and the entire Disney corporation… just to get them all into a courtroom so they’ll listen to her idea for a script. WHAT?

Let’s let TMZ explain…

Jo Anne Vandegriff — who describes herself as homeless — freely admits the suit is a ploy to get everyone in a room so she can sell her 2,000-page original Civil War romance mini-series, “Heaven’s Angels.”

Vandegriff describes her script as “an extraordinary work in its length, complexity, and scope, though not yet a masterpiece work.”

Vandegriff is targeting Disney because she wants to open up the studio — which she claims produces lily-white content — to Black and Hispanic females.

She doesn’t apologize for using the legal system to make a buck, because, as she says in the lawsuit, “a mini-series of this nature only comes along once every twenty to thirty years.”

So why sue Halle?  Vandegriff wants her in the leading role.  As for Amanda … it would be a great comeback for her.  And Armie … he could finally be a leading man (and rid himself of the “Lone Ranger” stink — that’s our take).

And Vandegriff promises her script will help stimulate the economy … and promote “peace and harmony, health and happiness.”

Again, California’s legal system is a complete joke and we know it, but how is this even going to make it to court? How is this a real thing that isn’t just thrown out immediately for being absolutely ridiculous? WHAT IS HAPPENING IN LOS ANGELES?

Also, I feel particularly bad for Amanda here. She’s just getting her life together and then some asshole wants to pull her back into a load of bullshit. Ugh.

Disney and Pixar Are Totally Cool, Totally With It

The folks behind some of the most groundbreaking animation of all time, Disney and Pixar, are utilizing another up-and-coming technology: “viral video”. These faux-commericals for Lots-O’-Huggin’ bear have turned up online and it turns out that they’re actually something put together by the people at Disney and Pixar to promote a new character in Toy Story 3.

The bear itself is actually pretty cute and the bunk VHS-to-digital quality of these clips adds a level of authenticity that makes me wonder what other stunts these cats are gonna pull to promote this new flick.

In terms of animated sequels, you’ll catch me at Shrek 3 over Toy Story 3 any day of the week. Are you looking forward to checking out what’s up with Buzz and Woody?

Orly Bloom Won’t Return For New Pirates Either

Awhile back I announced on here that Johnny Depp is almost definitely not returning to the Pirates of the Caribbean set for another movie. This news was not popular, because what the hell is a Pirates movie without Johnny playing Jack Sparrow? All that would leave us with is Orlando Bloom and that pretty British chick on a boat. Well, now I guess it’s just the British chick and the boat because Orlando doesn’t want to do another installment in the series, either.

So where does that leave Disney? I’m thinking they need to cut their losses and realize that we live in a vampire crazed world and that pirates– at least for the moment– are more over than that whole “black leggings and tunic” look we were all rocking when the first one came out. It’s been years, guys! Perhaps the Mouse needs throw in the towel. No one’s going to see another one of these movies.
