The Rundown

Entertainment Express: The Rolling Stones, Charlize Theron, Pussy Riot, Ryan Gosling, Michael Jackson

 

* Can it truly be? Billboard is reporting The Rolling Stones will be playing shows in New York and London in November. The band, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, hasn’t toured together since the Bigger Bang series ended in 2007. Meanwhile, a film chronicling the band’s life is on its way.

* Charlize Theron is set to produce a film about war journalist Marie Colvin who was killed in Syria earlier this year. No word yet on whether Charlize will star in the movie too.

* Bastion of punk culture, CBGB is lobbying on behalf of Amnesty International for the imprisoned members of Pussy Riot, the punk band that has been jailed after protesting Russian President Vladimir Putin. CBGB is also selling t-shirts to help raise funds to support the women.

* Ryan Gosling is preparing to make his directorial debut, behind the lens of a movie touted as a modern-day fairytale called How to Catch a Monster, starring Christina Hendricks.

* Yesterday would have been Michael Jackson’s 54th birthday, and to honour this, Clark Atlanta university has added a new MBA course looking into the late pop icon’s career, taught by a former entertainment lawyer, whose clients have included Jamie Foxx and DMX.
