In The Lens

STALLONE TO STAR IN "CREED"

  

Latest installment in the "Rocky" franchise, the new "Rocky" movie from "Fruitvale Station" director Ryan Coogler is a go for a January 2015 shoot. The main character, played by "Fruitvale" lead Michael B. Jordan, will be called Adonis Creed and the movie itself is called "Creed."

It's about Apollo Creed's grandson who has grown up reaping the spoils of his grandfather Apollo's winnings and is forbidden by his family to enter the boxing world.

Against his family's wishes, he goes for a title with Rocky Balboa as his coach, played by Sylvestor Stallone. 

  

Coogler suggested this idea to Stallone and producer Irwin Winkler and they went for it. Somewhere, Jordan must be eating lots of eggs and running up and down steps wearing a hoodie.

 

"Creed" will be shot in Philadelphia, naturally. Some of the characters include Adonis's deaf half-sister, age 10, as well as a potential lady friend for Adonis who is a doctor of Indian descent; a guy named Joe who co-owns Mickey's Gym with Rocky and a Mickey-like guy named Marcel. He's a Latino who assists with Adonis's training.

No word yet on music. But this is Philly, so there's bound to be a lot of soul in that town. 

"BLIND SIDE" DIRECTOR TACKLING 
THE STORY OF MCDONALD'S

  

John Lee Hancock is in negotiations to direct "The Founder", the story of the rise of the McDonald's fast food empire. Film Nation and The Combine are producing.

    

"The Founder" is a drama that tells the true story of how Ray Kroc, a salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick MacDonald who were running a burger operation in 1950's Southern California. Kroc was impressed with the brothers' speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential. He maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire.

  

  

Hancock last directed "Saving Mr. Banks", the story of how Walt Disney tried to woo author P.L. Travers in order to make "Mary Poppins." Hancock also wrote and directed "The Blind Side" the surprise hit drama for which Sandra Bullock won an Oscar.

  

The tone of the script for "The Founders" is described as being akin to "The Social Network" and "There Will Be Blood."

FIVE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT--SO FAR--

TECH INVENTIONS OF THE 21ST CENTURY

 

Apple iPod

It's the technology that really changed the way people

listen to music.


Skype

It used to cost an arm and a leg, but Skype made

it possible to communicate overseas--even video chat--for free. 

YouTube

A melting pot of news, events, political messages, music clips, hilarious blunders and cat videos, YouTube is the world's most popular video-sharing website.

  

Facebook

Thanks to its simplicity and ease of use, today Facebook connects over 1.3 billion people worldwide.

 

Google Driverless Car
Now testing in California, if the concept takes off, Google Driverless Cars could transform the way we move around cities in the future.

JEWELRY'S WORD PLAY

Actions may speak louder than words but having a slogan embellished in fine jewelry is a pretty good way to get a message across, too. Name and initial jewelry has enjoyed its time in the limelight ever since Sarah Jessica Parker flaunted her "Carrie" necklace around New York City's most fabulous bars.

  

But lately, designers are taking a less self-absorbed approach by creating jewels that leave a message.

  

In fact, love is all around in he world of wordy jewelry--Lanvin's supersized necklaces and rings scrawl "Love" or "Kiss" across chests and knuckles. While you can find the "L" word set in gold and diamond script for a sugary sweet "Love" ring.

 

For maximum impact, look to designer Diane Korda's fun and fashionable range of pop-art inspired pieces. "Pow" "Bam" "Wow" "OMG" or "LOL", choose the exclamation that suits your mood and let your pendant or earrings do the talking. 

 

The award for taking the most direct approach goes to designer Anna Sheffield whose oh-so-delicate rose gold ring is engraved with a not-so-delicate message. You can't say she didn't warn you...
