Seth Rogan says he planned on making a sequel to Pineapple Express, but was turned down by Sony. Rogan discussed the potential film on SiriusXM’s “The Howard Stern Show," Wednesday.
Jerod Harris / Getty Images“We tried to make one and thanks to the Sony hack you can actually find the email when Sony decided to kill the movie and not make it,” he told Howard Stern. “It was something we were very open to several years ago, but Sony was not that interested in it.
“I think we probably wanted too much money. Studios, they don’t like giving away money. Weird thing,” he said.
In 2014, Sony Pictures was hacked and an email from producer Judd Apatow showed the team's interest in a second film: “I am so glad we are so close to getting ‘Pineapple Express 2’ figured out. I am very excited to make this thing real. We are very inspired creatively on this one. We have hilarious ideas. It is gonna be awesome. We learned so much on how to make these comedy sequels when we did ‘Anchorman 2.’ And we rocked that marketing campaign. Foreign is doing awesome too. I am sure ‘PE2’ will do even better! Marijuana is so popular now! It’s on every corner!” Apatow wrote in an email.
The Daily Beast reported that Apatow sought a $50 million budget, but Sony set a cap at $45 million and a middle ground was never met.

HBO has finally dropped a teaser for the captivating docuseries about the alleged NXIVM sex cult. The Vow was first announced back in April.
The Vow, which is set to premiere in August on the network, is a true-crime docuseries revolving around the NXIVM cult, its leader Keith Raniere, and former Smallville star Alison Mack’s involvement with the group. Mack recently pleaded guilty to multiple felony counts including sex trafficking and trafficking conspiracy. The group is focused on self-improvement, which is alleged to be a front for more illicit activities. The case is particularly bizarre in that Mack confessed to numerous cult-like rituals, like trying to recruit Harry Potter star Emma Watson and coining the group’s “slave” branding ritual. Co-stars of the actress described her as a warm, sweet, and exceptionally bright person, so her ties to sex slavery and human trafficking were baffling to many.
Allison Mack arrives at court over sex trafficking charges - Jemal Countess/Getty ImagesEmmy-winning and Oscar-nominated directors Jehane Noujaim and Karim Amer will helm the project as it takes a deep, nuanced look at experiences of NXIVM members, spotlighting their universal desire for personal growth. The docuseries will provide a closer look at Raniere, who was convicted in June 2019, the group’s founder and leader responsible for their transition from a self-help group to an abusive sex cult. Check out the trailer below.
The Vow premieres August 23rd on HBO. Will you be tuning in? Let us know!

Shoreline Mafia just keeps elevating in this game. The crew released their debut album Mafia Bidness this past week, bringing along several guest stars for the ride. Future joins Ohgeesy and Rob Vicious on "Poe The Drop," produced by Ron-Ron The Producer & AceTheFace. Ron-Ron has a very distinct style of beat, and "Poe The Drop" fits snugly into that category. Vivid and impactful percussions make the song more bass than anything else.
Ohgeesy and Rob Vicious take control of two-thirds of the record, opting to give Future the final verse. It is worth the wait though. Future's penchant of twisting melodies and inventing flows makes this verse a stand out on the whole album. Make sure you have the volume cranked to the fullest for "Poe The Drop."
Walk inside a jewelry store and spend a brick, suwoo
Got two Glock 9s, they came with a switch, ooh-woo
Popped a Adderall or half a Percocet, ooh-woo (I'm gone)
This a LaFerrari, this not a Corvette, no, no
I got killers with me, murk a nigga bitch, ooh-woo
I'm a trap star, I'm drinkin' my Actavis, ooh-woo

To help ease the burden of Billy McFarland’s Fyre Fest failure in 2017, the U.S. Marshals Service will be auctioning off merch from the fraudulent event and donating the proceeds to those who were affected by the scam. McFarland is currently serving a six-year sentence for his scheme at a federal prison in Ohio.
There are 126 items available for purchase. The items to be sold include a souvenir token engraved with the phrase "a conspiracy to change the entertainment," a cap, some long-sleeve t-shirts, a hoodie, jogger sweatpants, and a wristband for festival entry.
"This Fyre Festival-branded clothing and other items that were seized from Billy McFarland were originally intended to be sold at the Fyre Festival itself but were kept by McFarland, with the intent to sell the items and use the funds to commit further criminal acts while he was on pre-trial release," said Southern District of New York U.S. Marshal Ralph Sozio. "The proceeds from the sale of these items, all traceable to McFarland’s $26 million fraud, will go toward the victims of his crimes."
Vendor Gaston & Sheehan will be hosting the auction. Items are currently open for bidding and registration, which is scheduled to end on August 13.
Check out the auction website here. Let us know if you'd cop any of these items.

The L.A. Sheriff’s Department says video footage that went viral showing presumed employees partying without masks is not true. They say the people in the video are not LASD employees, nor was the event organized by the office.
Mario Tama / Getty Images“It was not a booking by the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department directly, and we cannot confirm whether LASD staff were present,” the department explained on Facebook.
“The persons identified in the video are not employees of the Sheriff's Department and this event was not hosted by the LASD. As soon as we became aware of allegations of deputies attending a party in violation of health orders, we initiated an inquiry in an attempt to validate the information or misinformation. If further details are discovered and action is warranted, we will take appropriate administrative action”
The original footage, which was recorded by the group Ground Game LA, shows men without masks responding “yeah,” when asked if they are with the department.
Gov. Gavin Newsom ordered that bars in L.A. County shut down as of late June, as coronavirus cases begin to rise.
The LASD is opening an investigation into the incident, Deputy Maria Lucero, a spokesperson for the department, says.

Michael Schur, co-creator of Parks and Recreation and Brooklyn Nine-Nine, spoke about his father-in-law, legendary television host Regis Philbin, in a lengthy Twitter thread. Philbin died last week, at age 88.
Amy Sussman / Getty ImagesSchur married Philbin’s daughter, J.J. Philbin, in 2005.
“I’ve never really been able to articulate what his life and career meant. It’s too huge. You can’t wrap your arms around it. He literally holds the Guinness Book Record for most hours on TV. (Like 17,000, or something equally absurd),” Schur wrote. “Luckily, I’ve never really *had* to articulate it, because most people just kind of get it. For decades, Regis was always there, on TV, chatting and complaining and making people laugh. He needed no explanation.”
Schur goes on to reflect on some of Philbin's career achievements such as reporting on athletes from Lou Groza and Eli Manning to Yogi Berra and Gary Sanchez. "A guy who was on TV when Harvey Haddix struck out Duke Snider, and also handed million-dollar checks on a futuristic game show set," Schur writes.
"Regis hated 'memory lane,' so I hope he forgives me for this one last trip. No one will ever be what he was, in the medium he dedicated his life to. What a run."

The Xbox Series X will be revolutionary. The system is set to be the most powerful console on the planet, with only PC players having a slight edge. Microsoft revealed some gameplay from their titan game series, Halo, on the new system last week. Now, Halo has dropped a groundbreaking announcement that will surely change things for many gamers. "Halo is for everyone," tweeted the official account for the game. "We can confirm #HaloInfinite multiplayer will be free-to-play and will support 120FPS on Xbox Series X. More details will be shared later!"
This is big for Xbox gamers. Much like the popular battle royale games Fortnite and Apex Legends, Halo Infinite will let anyone with the Gold service play for free. This will undoubtedly mean that multiplayer will be updated with new levels and weapons to keep gamers interested in playing. It will be interesting to see what will be included in the actual full price game release, since many people only play for online gaming anyway. Halo Infinite is expected to drop alongside the Xbox Series X this holiday season. The PlayStation 5 will also drop around the same time, setting up a console battle this Christmas. Which system will you be getting?

Four women have come forward to accuse The Goldbergs’ star Bryan Callen of sexual misconduct, one month after close friend and fellow comedian Chris D’Elia denied multiple allegations made against him.
The Los Angeles Times published a lengthy article Friday morning detailing the allegations, with some dating back to 1999. Actress Katherine Fiore Tigerman told the newspaper that Callen had raped her that year in his bedroom after a night out. The two had met through her father, actor Bill Fiore, and became friends years later when they met in LA. Her story was corroborated by her now-husband and fellow actress and friend Jenny Wade, whom she told right after it happened.

Another accusation of sexual misconduct occurred in 2009 when the actor met an American Apparel employee named Rachel Green. Callen had visited the store the day before the assault happened and emerged from his dressing room in boxer briefs multiple times.
“It was one of those tight gross little things,” Green recalled to the newspaper. “He ran out of the fitting room to grab something, so I went in to get the clothes he’d already tried on. And then he comes in, pushes me against the wall, closes the curtains and starts kissing my neck as he asks me if I’m going to get in trouble.” Green was able to get away from Callen and flee.
Two more women, comedian Tiffany King and Starbucks barista Claire Ganshert also accused the actor of sexual misconduct.
Callen has denied all accusations vehemently, saying in a statement to the Times: “Let me be very clear: I have never raped, forced myself upon any woman nor offered to trade stage time for sex. EVER. I know the truth. And I can only hold my head up high, remain true to myself, my family, my audience and know that I will not allow the cancel culture to subvert what I know and as importantly, what they know, is the truth.”
