    Johnny Depp made a surprise appearance in London to sue The Sun.

    See, this is what I want to see from the estate too, from the Jacksons. I don't believe they are powerless in this.

    They are. Michael Jackson is dead. Johnny Depp is alive. There's no slander law for the dead.

    For me, all MeToo does is shifting the guilt onto everyone except the real culprits. It's not general public's fault that Weinstein got away with his dusgusting behaviour for years, but they try to paint it as something that's prevalent everywhere when the problem were celebrities and other producers that enabled and encouraged him. Everyone at Hollywood knew so why did they keep quiet? Besides, all you need to know about the advocates of movement is their stance on Polanski before 2016. A convicted rapist was hailed as extraordinary artist and apparently that's enough to let him get away scot free. Only when it was fashionable to condemn sexual harassment celebrities started speaking out against him. Their word is worthless, it's all about publicity and what will score them some popularity points

    Variety is reporting that the producers of Leaving Neverland ' have taken back the rights to the film'. (It was previously reported that Reed's lawyers had written to Kew Media with a view to taking back the rights).

    ‘Baroness Von Sketch Show’ Producer Buys Back Company from Embattled Kew Media Group

    Frantic Films founder Jamie Brown has personally financed the deal to reacquire 100% ownership of the firm, which was bought by Kew in March 2017. Terms of the deal have not been disclosed..............

    .......In a massive buying spree, Kew Media Group snapped up several prominent Canadian production companies for CAD$104 million ($78 million), including Frantic Films, Bristow Global Media and Our House Media, as well as London-based film and TV distributor Content Media and, later, factual distribution firm TCB Media. It also took stakes in a number of outfits, such as Two Rivers Media and Awesome Media.

    However, most of its production portfolio is now looking to exit the firm ahead of a court decision next month that could see the company liquidated and all remaining assets sold.

    Two Rivers bought back Kew’s stake in the business last month, while it is understood that Awesome is also courting offers from various investors. Meanwhile, TCB is trying to extricate itself from Kew Media Group as well, and is far along in the process of navigating a new deal that could even see owner Paul Heaney buying back the company himself.

    As revealed by Variety last month, among the filmmakers affected by Kew’s implosion was the team behind “Leaving Neverland,” who were heavily out of pocket. Producers have since taken back rights to the film.

    Robson, Safechuck, Reed, Kew – they all tried to throw MJ under the bus for nothing but money. I can’t wrap my head around how these people sleep at night. Since they don’t seem to care at all about how they hurt literally millions of people, I hope that their financial downfall will hit them hard. Money seems to be the only language they understand, and I hope they learn their lesson well.

    Nobody even cares about what Polanski did, I do care what he did and he should've been jailed a long time ago, but NO, nobody even cared. And I keep saying that MeToo used victims as pawns for the gain of the spotlight, which is why I don't trust it, especially if they used it against Michael.

    Polanski got a freaking standing ovation at an award show not so long back. And I'm willing to bet that many of the people giving him that standing ovation were the same people who were happy to throw Michael under the bus

    This is why I never pay attention to what ''woke'' Hollywood as to say because they're all a bunch of hypocrites

    I think it was in 2003 for The Pianist, so way before the me-too movement, but I agree some of them are the same who are now very woke and very outraged and want to cancel others left and right (maybe fearing they will be next?...).

    Polanski's case happened 40 years ago and it was quite hard to ignore because he couldn't even take his Oscar as he would have been arrested in the US, but almost everyone in cinema world managed to overlook it and act like it wasn't strange at all. Then me-too came and the same people are oh so suprised and furious - yeah, completely believable.

    I don't think it's a coincidence that a shady company and a shady director were chosen to do the job, they were less likely to back out from this shady task.
