Lady Gaga may have her cooking skills to thank for landing her leading role in “A Star Is Born”. Bradley Cooper said in a interview that her pasta won him over. The story goes that he was hanging out with her in her kitchen for a meeting, when she noticed he looked hungry. She gave him some leftover pasta from the fridge, which he says was “insane.” “The next thing I know after I’m eating pasta, we’re singing in her living room,” Cooper adds. “I recorded it on my phone and when I was trying to pitch this movie to Warner Brothers, I showed them that video.”

NBC has given the green light for another new music competition series, this time focused on songwriting.

“Songland,” executive produced by Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and Dave Stewart, and produced by OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, will give a lucky songwriter the chance to have their song recorded by a famous musician.

Each episode will see five songwriters performing a song for three producers and a major recording artist, who will then mentor them on how to improve the tune. Episode one is set to feature Charlie Puth, Tedder and Ester Dean.

The artist will eventually narrow down the songwriters to three, pair them with a producer, with the winning song becoming the artist’s next single.

It’s been a few months since James Gunn was fired by Disney as the director of “Guardians Of The Galaxy 3.” But it looks like now he’s back in action.

Warner Bros has reportedly hired Gunn to write and possibly direct the next “Suicide Squad” movie. It will be his first project since the controversy surrounding a series of decade-old offensive tweets.

The studio previously tapped Gavin O’Connor as director, but he’s apparently busy directing Ben Affleck’s upcoming drama “Torrance.” So, the studio has been in talks with Gunn to step in and bring his own take to the upcoming sequel.

Fans of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” may be thrilled that it’s joining the current wave of reboots, but Sarah Michelle Gellar is a little skeptical about it. In her mind, it’s not always necessary to bring these shows back to the small screen.

When it comes to ‘Buffy,’ she thinks the story was fine the way it was. “You know, you don’t mess with something that works,” she says.

So far, no release date has been announced for the reboot, which is currently in the works. So those who are eager to see the saga continue will have to wait for now.

This will be her sixth outing as Black Widow.
