Will Smith....The Last Pharaoh

Ok I personally can't wait to see if Will Smith will pull of being a pharaoh. This happens to be one role that he has wanted to play for a long time. He might have the look but let's face it, WIll Smith ain't a scary dude. If you have someone like Ving Rhames playing the pharaoh then that seems like it would be more believeable. But we'll just have to wait and see what Smith does in his next movie "The Last Pharaoh" where he plays Taharqa. For all you who failed history, Taharqa fought the Assyrian invaders in ancient Egypt. Read a book sheesh!

Farewell Jaquitta

If you live in Atlanta or any of the neighboring cities and watch the news, chances are you've seen Jaquitta Williams keeping you informed on local news. According to the AJC.com website, Jaquitta is saying farewell to her home of 4 years, WSB-TV. This comes as a desire to want to do other things after having a bout with breast cancer.

She has some things in the works that have yet to be mentioned but this definitely won't be the last we see of Jaquitta Williams. Show her your support on her myspace page.

Denzel in "The Book of Eli"

Denzel Washington is scheduled to begin work on a new movie this January titled, "The Book of Eli". According to IMDB.com the movie is described as "A post-apocalyptic Western, in which a lone man(Denzel) fights his way across America in order to protect a sacred book that holds the secrets to saving humankind."

We'll have to wait to see this one, sounds a little Mad Max-ish to me, but it's Denzel and I know he won't be in any garbage movie.

Best City for Singles

According to Forbes.com Atlanta, Georgia is listed as the best city for singles. "For the first time ever, Atlanta tops our list of the best cities for singles", according to the site.

Atlanta which is known as "Hotlanta", "The Black Mecca" and "Black Hollywood" is known for it's nightlife, restaurants, celebrities as well as it's attractive people, and with the current development projects happening in and around the city, it's understandable that more people will flock to this booming city.

Inside Man Sequel

Spike Lee got the green light from Universal Pictures to begin work on the sequel to "Inside Man" which starred Denzel Washington and Clive Owens as a police officier (Washington) and a bank robber (Owens). Both Owens and Washington gave the nod to being in the next installment of this story which will not follow the storyline of the first film.

I hope the storyline is as good as the first one because that was a surprising ending in the first movie.
