The Untitled Richard Linklater Project hails from the Boyhood and Where’d You Go Bernadette director and Knife Fight helmer Bill Guttentag.

The Stand, a limited-series adaptation of Stephen King’s classic novel, is slated for a late 2020 premiere. Written by Josh Boone and Ben Cavell and starring Alexander Skarsgard, The Stand is King’s apocalyptic vision of a world decimated by plague and embroiled in an elemental struggle between good and evil.

Additionally, The Man Who Fell to Earth, a series based on the Walter Tevis novel and the cult classic 1976 film, animated series The Harper House, from China, IL creator Brad Neely, and Guilty Party, a half-hour dark comedy starring and executive produced by Isla Fisher, are all slated to roll out on the streaming service beginning in 2021.

The premieres were announced Thursday by ViacomCBS as part of a preview of the upcoming expansion of the CBS All Access streaming service in early 2021.

Whilst promoting their new Netflix comedy Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga, Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams teased some news on a possible Wedding Crashers sequel:

Will Ferrell & Rachel McAdams Talk Wedding Crashers Sequel, Reuniting for Eurovision & More

What would a Wedding Crashers 2 look like?

E! News co-host Scott Tweedie made sure to ask all about the potential sequel during his exclusive chat with Wedding Crashers alums Will Ferrell and Rachel McAdams. While Tweedie was eager for details about the Wedding Crashers follow-up film, the two actors—who have reunited for a new Netflix movie, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga—stayed relatively tight-lipped.

“Wedding Crashers 2, yeah. I think we can just say it’s being written,” Ferrell told E! News.

As Tweedie joked about potential plot lines, Ferrell jokingly suggested that the sequel should be a drama about the characters’ subsequent divorces.

“How about if it’s just the lawyers representing everyone in divorce court? Wedding Crashers 2,” he quipped. “And just make it like a legal courtroom drama, not funny at all.”

For McAdams, she too thought divorce was in the cards for the characters of Wedding Crashers.

“Are we all getting divorced?” she pondered.

To finish off our string of updates catching up on missing appearance photos, over the last few weeks we’ve completed the 2019 appearances. Over 850 additional HQ photos from Isla’s appearances this year have been added – she attended several events to promote both hers and Sacha’s projects. I loved her outfits for the BAFTA LA Tea Party, Emmys and Golden Globes, but she (again) pulled out all the stops for the Vanity Fair Oscars After Party in a stunning silver beaded Jonathan Simkhai dress – another one of my all-time favourite looks of hers! Big thanks to our friend Maria for several of these photos.

Next up, we’ll be updating some of our content, and replacing some movie photos/screencaptures with better quality versions 🙂 Let us know if there’s anything in particular you’d like to see more of here!

Isla’s latest film Greed was released on digital/DVD/blu-ray earlier this week, and today we’ve added HD screencaptures from the film. The satire film centered around high street fashion mogul Richard McCreadie, and the preparations for his lavish 60th birthday celebrations and story of how he built his empire; Isla played his ex-wife Samantha in a small (but present) supporting role. The film was watchable and funny at times, but missed the mark in getting its point across in a memorable way. Isla was fun and as always the highlight! Enjoy the screencaptures:

Sacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher partnered with Salesforce mogul Marc Benioff to send 20 tons of PPE supplies to front-line healthcare workers in the UK.

After Benioff revealed that Cohen was part of the donation in a tweet, the comedy star responded to the post: “Isla and I are so happy to have such persistent and generous partners in getting this done. Businesses please follow and get PPE in through.”

The shipment included 50,000 coveralls and 100,000 masks.

Cohen and Fisher are two of many celebrities using their resources for pandemic relief.

We’ve skipped forward a bit from our last update of 2018 appearance photos, to add some additional HQ photos from Isla’s appearances so far this year. She attended the BAFTA LA Tea Party and the Golden Globes, sporting two very different looks but equally fabulous! I love her chic look at the Tea Party, and the more dramatic look at the Globes. The Golden Globe photos are particularly cute because Isla and Sacha both look so proud! We’ll go back and finish the 2019 appearances next…
