has yanked the film from its release schedule. David Fisher/REX/Shutterstock Johnny Depp’s movie about the murder of Notorious B.I.G., City of Lies, has been pulled a month before its scheduled release, Variety reports. The film was supposed to open September 7th, but is now undated, according to a spokesman for the distribution company, Global Road Entertainment. City of Lies is based on Randall Sullivan’s book, LAbyrinth: A Detective Investigates the Murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., the Implication of Death Row Records’ Suge Knight, and the Origins of the Los Angeles Police Scandal. In the film, Depp plays real-life LAPD detective Russell Poole, while Forest Whitaker was cast as a journalist also investigating the infamous murders. The decision to yank City of Lies comes one month after a former location manager, Gregg “Rocky” Brooks, sued Depp for alleged assault. According to Brooks, Depp punched him twice in the ribs and verbally assaulted him on set. The crew member also claimed that he was fired from City of Lies after refusing to sign a non-disclosure agreement that would have prevented him from suing Depp. However, fans of the Harry Potter spin-off series have criticized the decision to cast Depp in the film after his ex-wife, Amber Heard, accused him of physical and verbal abuse. Depp has denied the claims.
WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is expected to issue a proposal in coming weeks that would make it harder for legal immigrants to become citizens or get green cards if they have ever used a range of popular public welfare programs, including Obamacare, four sources with knowledge of the plan told NBC News. The move, which would not need Congressional approval, is part of White House senior adviser Stephen Miller's plan to limit the number of migrants who obtain legal status in the U.S. each year. Details of the rulemaking proposal are still being finalized, but based on a recent draft seen last week and described to NBC News, immigrants living legally in the U.S. who have ever used or whose household members have ever used Obamacare, children's health insurance, food stamps and other benefits could be hindered from obtaining legal status in the U.S. Immigration lawyers and advocates and public health researchers say it would be the biggest change to the legal immigration system in decades and estimate that more than 20 million immigrants could be affected. Many are like Louis Charles, a Haitian green-card holder seeking citizenship who, despite working up to 80 hours a week as a nursing assistant, has had to use public programs to support his disabled adult daughter. Miller, along with several of his former congressional colleagues who now hold prominent positions in the Trump administration, have long sought to decrease the number of immigrants who obtain legal status in the U.S. each year. "I did everything they asked me" Charles, the Haitian green-card holder who works as a nursing assistant in a psychiatric hospital near Boston, said he was stunned to learn his application for citizenship had been denied. But when he went for his citizenship interview in August 2017, the USCIS officers told him they were going to revisit the decision to waive the fake passport incident, meaning he could potentially lose his green card as well. "Applications for renewal or adjustment of status that have been filed with the government before are being re-examined to look for fraud," Jenks said. In light of this, immigration attorneys are cautioning their clients before moving from green-card status to citizenship. She now sends six information requests to government agencies to check on green-card holders' backgrounds before she advises them to file for citizenship.
Charles Lindbergh McGill had quite a lot in common with the famous aviator who inspired his first and middle names. After all, they were both child prodigies from the Midwest who achieved considerable wealth and respectability in their chosen field. Chuck McGill, on the other hand, brought the force of his prejudices down on one man: his brother Jimmy. Maybe, as it turns out, that’s someone else’s cross to bear. Let Howard inherit this curse, this life sentence of suffering under Chuck’s tyranny. He is, however, breaking the hold Chuck’s had over him for decades, and making a choice to live with no lingering obligation to a man that wielded disapproval to his death. The season-opening flash-forward (which, as I’ve written elsewhere, I’m convinced occurs in 2057) shows us Gene Takavic nee Jimmy from the perspective of rubbernecking mall patrons and through Gene’s own eyes, yet another blurry, unreal POV for him to process. Nacho is literally on Gus’s radar in a big way, and Gus has made clear to Bolsa that a continuing Salamanca enterprise can only bring more harm than help. Apart From All That • No Lowe Memorial Hospital I could find in Omaha. Look where it got Chuck.
WARNING: The following contains major spoilers. After audiences watched Kufrin give Yrigoyen her final rose on Monday evening’s Bachelorette finale, the engaged couple was given a very special gift from ABC: a mini van! Following their sit-down chat with host Chris Harrison, the pair left the After the Final Rose stage and walked outside, where they were presented with an old mini van from the network, a nod to night one of her season when Yrigoyen also rolled up in a mini van. The pair’s new/old set of wheels is baby blue, which is accented with a wood panel stripe; it also included a toy-filled baby carrier in the back seat. “Since he pulled up in that mini van, I was smitten with him,” Kufrin had said during a Bachelorette episode. Watch the full episode of People Features: Becca Kufrin and Garrett Yrigoyen – Everything Led Me to Him streaming now on PeopleTV.com, or download the PeopleTV app on your favorite device. Adds Yrigoyen, 29: “I knew I loved Becca so much that I didn’t want her to not be a part of my life.” Not to say it was always smooth sailing for the couple. Kufrin initially struggled with her feelings for Yrigoyen, given his past brief marriage and the fact that he didn’t say “I love you” as quickly as some of the other men. “I was more afraid with him because he had been married,” says Kufrin. “I really wanted to make sure that he was 100 percent in.” Continues Kufrin: “He did take things slower than the other guys.
, the head of unscripted at Amazon Studios, has left the company, after less than a year in the role, Variety has confirmed. Schuster was promoted to the job in October 2017, replacing Conrad Riggs who was ousted amid the exodus of Roy Price. According to sources, Schuster’s exit follows an investigation into allegations that she engaged in verbally abusive behavior. Schuster spent a year with Ryan Seacrest Productions, and then launched her own shingle with All3Media before moving to Amazon as a lieutenant of Riggs. Amazon has been sparing in its ventures into unscripted programming in the years since launching its original content strategy. The company made a big global bet on “The Grand Tour,” the travelogue and automotive show reuniting the “Top Gear” team of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May last year. Schuster spent five years as a producer on NBC’s “The Apprentice,” starring Donald Trump, working for series creator and executive producer Mark Burnett. She also served as a producer on the reality series “Tabatha’s Salon Takeover” for NBCUniversal-owned cable channel Bravo. She had been at Amazon only a handful of months before taking the top unscripted programming job last year. News of Schuster’s exit was first reported by Deadline.
WASHINGTON — Rosie O’Donnell and cast members from Broadway shows sang show tunes just outside the White House fence on Monday, joining what have been nightly protests against President Trump ever since his Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin. '” This was the 22nd night of protests in front of the White House, in what has come to be known as the Kremlin Annex. Speakers brought up a number of issues — childhood separation and attacks on the press — but the underlying theme was the urgency of getting Trump out of office. pic.twitter.com/55VlnsQQuu — Tom Roussey (@tomrousseyABC7) August 6, 2018 Figures such as Michael Avenatti and Alyssa Milano have addressed the crowd in recent weeks, but O’Donnell has a much longer history with Trump. Before he entered politics, she had been one of his frequent celebrity targets. Although he is in Bedminster, N.J., this week and was not actually in the Executive Mansion on Monday, O’Donnell did what could be considered a bit of trolling. She cited the case of Reality Winner, a former intelligence specialist now in jail as she awaits sentencing for leaking information about Russian interference in the 2016 election to The Intercept. “She is currently the only person serving time for telling about Russian hacking,” O’Donnell told the crowd. She is a whistleblower and she deserves our attention and the story our respect.” She added, “Reality Winner is not a made up name. Let’s hope that they swap places very soon.” Also speaking was Jim Obergefell, the named plaintiff in the 2015 Supreme Court case that led to marriage equality across the country.
Image MOSCOW — There may be little that pleases Senator Rand Paul, the libertarian-leaning Kentucky Republican, more than thumbing his nose at Washington groupthink. “I’ve traveled here to say that there are many Americans who want to have diplomacy, that want to have engagement; I’m one of them,” Mr. Paul said, standing beside Konstantin Kosachyov, the chairman of the foreign relations committee of Russia’s senate who has been subject to American sanctions since April. Mr. Paul has something else in mind — maybe even taking some Russian lawmakers back to Washington. The issue is that we can’t have discussion of issues because we have no dialogue.” As he stepped out of a meeting with senators of the Federation Council, the upper chamber of Russia’s parliament, on Monday, Mr. Paul said that he had extended an invitation to members of its foreign policy committee to visit Washington. Later in the day, in a meeting with members of Russia’s lower house of parliament, Mr. Paul said he would oppose the passage of new Russia sanctions proposed by his Senate colleagues. He complained about “sanctions hysteria” in Washington, according to a report by RIA Novosti, a Russian state-run news agency. And while other lawmakers may be incensed by Russia’s meddling in American elections, Mr. Paul has suggested that the United States has done the same thing. “Russia shouldn’t meddle in our elections,” he wrote on Twitter last month. Eight Republican lawmakers visited Moscow ahead of the summit meeting in Helsinki, Finland, between Mr. Trump and President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia in July. But that has not stopped the president from pushing ahead with his campaign to warm relations: Just days after he returned, Mr. Trump said he planned to invite Mr. Putin to Washington.
Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump's administration believes the United Nations agency tasked with supporting Palestinian refugees "has perpetuated and exacerbated the refugee crisis," a senior Trump administration official said Monday. Much of the Trump administration's Middle East peace plan remains a closely-guarded secret, but emails newly leaked to Foreign Policy magazine and a statement from a senior administration official are shedding light on the administration's dim view of the UN's Palestinian refugee agency, known as UNRWA. The agency educates about 500,000 children in nearly 700 schools and UNRWA doctors see more than 9 million patients in nearly 150 primary health clinics every year. The US had been the single largest donor to the UNRWA. Kushner's email came days before the Trump administration announced plans to cut US funding to the refugee agency by more than half. The senior administration official declined to confirm how the administration would like to see UNRWA's mandate "changed" and declined to say whether the Trump administration believes Palestinians living in other countries should maintain their refugee status. Hanan Ashrawi, a member of the Executive Committee of the Palestine Liberation Organization, told Foreign Policy that Kushner believes Palestinian refugees must be resettled in the countries where they currently reside. The senior Trump administration official declined to respond to the suggestion that Kushner opposes Palestinian refugees' right to return to a future Israeli or Palestinian state. "The US policy regarding UNRWA has been under frequent evaluation and internal discussion. The official also said the US remains one of the largest funders of UNRWA, despite cutting its funding to the UN agency to $60 million.
Clearly, being first lady has always been a difficult, time-consuming job, yet she refused to retire. Mrs. Obama just made this announcement for one of the most important elections in this country’s history. She had already created a PSA (public service announcement) promoting a nonprofit initiative called When We All Vote, which she chairs. The announcement went into detail about her initiative beginning on September 22 and ending on the 29th. Her effort works alongside the National Voter Registration Day on September 25. She said “There’s too much at stake:” ‘There’s too much at stake to sit on the sidelines. Not just in this election, but in every election.’ During her week of action, Obama will join other members of When We All Vote and a group of celebrities. Then, they will spread across the country promoting voter registration. Obama said it was a way to celebrate the anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, noting that our efforts are “far from finished:” ‘Sometimes it’s easy to forget all the work it took to get this law passed.
