New ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ in the works… Eminem’s daughter engaged… Post Malone almost got arrested… A fake CGI kiss… and The Grammys fightListen to “Showbiz – Feb 7, 2023” on Spreaker.
In movie news, Deadline is reporting that another sequel to “I Know What You Did Last Summer” is in the works at Sony. They are in the very early stages of development, but Jennifer Love Hewitt and Freddie Prinze Jr. are reportedly in negotiations to return. The original starring Jennifer, Freddie, Sarah Michelle Gellar and Ryan Phillippe grossed $125M worldwide. It spawned 1998’s “I Know What You Did Last Summer” and then 2006’s “I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer.” Jennifer and Freddie were in the first sequel but wisely skipped the second. Now we’ll see if the money and the script are right for then to come back for another go-round. And on Showtime, the prequel to “Dexter” is coming your way. According to Showtime, the “Dexter: Origins” series “will dramatize young Dexter Morgan at the outset of his transition into the avenging serial killer he would become. Set in the Miami that was a hotbed of real serial killers of his time, the show will begin as Dexter graduates college to join Miami Metro, where he meets younger versions of many of the characters we came to know in the original ‘Dexter.’ And, of course, the show will also focus on Dexter’s family, including a very-much-alive Harry and a very formidable, teenage Deb.”

Congratulations to Hailie Jade. Eminem’s daughter announced on Instagram yesterday that she’s engaged to Evan McClintock. She posted a photo with Evan as they broke up a bottle of bubbly, captioning it, “casual weekend recap… 2.4.23. i love you @evanmcclintock11.” The couple met as students at Michigan State University in 2016 and apparently have been together ever since. Hailey majored in psychology and graduated with her BA. She’s now a social media influencer with her own podcast, “just a little shady.” According to his LinkedIn, Evan earned his BA focused in Economics. He works for a company where, Evan says, “I deploy complex-loss investigatory technology and services to enterprises and large government entities.”

Post Malone was almost arrested while filming a prank on “Impractical Jokers.” The show features a group of high school friends as they try to get each other to do embarrassing things with unsuspecting people on the street. Season 10 will feature some famous guests, including Kesha, John Mayer, and the aforementioned Post. In the bit, Post and the guys pretend to be valet. When Post gets out of one customer’s car, he said, “Boss, thanks for letting me smoke that up in there, man.” The man was so angry the he called the NYPD! When the officers arrived, they quickly found out this was a prank for “Impractical Jokers.” It turns out they’re big fans and Post wasn’t arrested. And the man who called the cops ended up being cool about it once he realized what was going on. Season 10 of “Impractical Jokers” premieres Feb. 9 on TBS and truTV.

If you watched “You People” on Netflix and, like me, thought there was zero chemistry between Lauren London and Jonah Hill, our feelings are being validated. Andrew Schulz plays the cousin of Jonah Hill’s character in the movie. He also has a podcast called “Brilliant Idiots.” On the podcast, Andrew said, “I don’t know if I should share this here, but in the final scene of ‘You People,’ they don’t even kiss. It’s CGI. I’m there; I’m watching the wedding, and I see them going for the kiss, and their faces are like this far (apart).” No comment yet from Lauren, Jonah or Netflix.

TMZ’s sources say a fight broke out backstage at the Grammys between Migos members Quavo and Offset. Quavo was in Houston with his nephew Takeoff when Quavo got into an argument with someone over a dice game. Shots were fired and Takeoff — who was an innocent bystander — was killed. Quavo was about to perform his song “Without You” in honor of Takeoff when, according to TMZ’s sources, Grammys producers asked if Offset to join him onstage. Quavo said no and reportedly blocked Offset from walking onstage, which led to a physical altercation. Quavo tried to dispel the rumor with a tweet, basically telling us we’re all crazy if we think that’s true. Call me crazy because I believe it! And if you thought something was a little off with Harry Styles’ performance of “As It Was,” you were right! One of his backup dancers went on TikTok yesterday and explained that there was a huge technical disaster. For 10 days, Harry and a dozen dancers rehearsed on a rotating stage, getting this beautiful, artistic choreography down perfectly. But for the live broadcast, the stage started rotating IN THE WRONG DIRECTION. The dancers tried to get the tech’s attention, but it was no use. On the fly, they had to try to figure out how to do all that choreography in the opposite direction.
There’s clearly still serious bad blood between Migos’ rappers Quavo and Offset following the death of Takeoff … and those emotions boiled over backstage at The Grammys into a physical fight. https://t.co/SVTAE2unRd— TMZ (@TMZ) February 6, 2023
