Cameron Diaz (Bad Teacher, Charlie’s Angels) and Benicio del Toro (Traffic, Sin City) have been cast opposite each other in the upcoming action-comedy, penned by the Stuart Little screenwriter Greg Brooker.
Diaz will play a real estate agent and recent divorcee who ends up getting kidnapped and thrown into the middle of a Mexican drug war. She must then use her “maternal instincts and a streak of pure dumb luck” to make it back home. Action-comedies are well within Diaz’ wheelhouse, but it’s a nice change of pace for Del Toro, who has mostly stuck to dramas and thrillers.
Agent: Century 21 will be directed by Adam Hashemi, who will be making his directorial debut.

The Disneyland Resort’s California Adventure theme park debuted the world’s first Frozen musical on Friday, May 27, and video of the full show is now online.
Clocking in at nearly 70 minutes long, the new Frozen musical is easily one of longest shows ever at a Disney park. The previous musical at the Hyperion Theater at California Adventure, Aladdin, was “only” 45 minutes.
With only three shows scheduled for opening day, Fast Passes for the Frozen musical were out of stock only one hour after the park opened. The passes will only get tougher to come by as we enter the holiday weekend.
Luckily, fans managed to record the whole show and put it on YouTube. Your favorite characters, including Ana, Elsa, and Olaf, appear in the Frozen musical as they perform all the hit songs from the movie. As you can tell from the length of the show, much of the movie has made it into the theatrical adaptation. The show is quite extravagant, and naturally includes a show-stopping performance of “Let It Go.” Watch the full Frozen musical below:
Disney has already announced that a Broadway version of Frozen is currently in development, as is an animated sequel.
Fox has moved the third and final Maze Runner movie to 2018.
The cast and crew were only a few days into filming The Death Cure in March when Dylan O’Brien suffered serious injuries on set, prompting the production to be put on a break so he could recover. When his recovery ended up taking longer than expected, the production was put on an indefinite hold.
Now, a plan to resume the shoot seems to be in place. Fox announced Friday The Death Cure will be hitting theaters January 12, 2018, which is nearly a year later than the original February 2017 date. The last Maze Runner movie, The Scorch Trials, opened last September.
Production on The Maze Runner: The Death Cure likely won’t resume until late this year or early next. Dylan O’Brien has already committed to another movie which is expected to shoot this summer.
Getting the rest of the cast and crew back together to shoot The Maze Runner finale may be a bit of a challenge since they may’ve committed to other projects that were supposed to be shooting after they finished The Maze Runner. However, the new Death Cure release date suggests Fox has found a time that’ll work for everyone.
Tom Cavanagh will return to The Flash in season 3 as a series regular, though which character he’ll be playing remains to be seen.
Cavanagh has had a unique acting challenge on The Flash, playing a different version of his character in each of the first two seasons — and now it looks like he’ll be doing it for a third season in a row, as EW confirms that he will be a series regular in season 3.
In season 1, Cavanagh played Eobard Thawne, aka the Reverse Flash, in Harrison Wells’ body. Thawne, after traveling back in time, killed the original Wells and took his form to expedite the development of the particle accelerator so he could return to his own time. Thawne was written out of existence in the season 1 finale, though, leaving fans curious about who Cavanagh would be playing in season 2.
This past season, Cavanagh played the Earth-2 version of Harrison Wells, nicknamed Harry, who was a significantly different character from the man we thought was Wells in season 1. However, in the season 2 finale, Harry and his daughter, Jesse, returned to Earth-2.
So, who does that leave for Cavanagh to play in the third season?
My guess would be the Earth-1 version of Harrison Wells, who we only briefly met in a flashback in season 1. Why the original Wells? Because in the final moments of the season 2 finale, Barry traveled back in time and stopped Thawne from killing his mother. This means the timeline in which Thawne killed Wells and took his form no longer exists, so Earth-1 Wells would be the version left alive.
Assuming he does play the original version of the character, the one who was killed and had his identity stolen, it will be interesting to see Cavanagh inhabit yet another version of the character. While we already met Wells briefly in the flashback to his death, that was a small sample size. I look forward to seeing him differentiate another Wells from those he’s already played for entire seasons.
