"Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Sapphire" director Lee Daniels has turned to Britain while casting for his civil rights movie "Selma" - he's hired U.K. actor David Oyelowo to play iconic American Martin Luther King Jr. The Oscar-nominated filmmaker is turning his attentions to the U.S. civil rights movement of the 1960s, and will tell the story of the historic marches led by Luther King Jr. in Selma, Atlanta.

But rather than cast an American in the role, Daniels has opted for British TV actor Oyelowo, whose main film credits are "The Last King of Scotland" and "As You like It". Hugh Jackman is also signed to the film, playing state governor George Wallace, and in early March, Daniels admitted he was worried as he hadn't cast any of the film's other parts.

Corey Haim was laid to final rest on Tuesday, March 16 at Thornhill memorial chapel in Toronto. Around two hundred of friends and family packed the place to pay him respect while some fans stood on the church's lawn while the 45-minutes service was going on.

Maytal Kotler, a second cousin of Haim's longtime friend and co-star Corey Feldman described the service as "very sad but with a lot of laughter." Feldman himself skipped the event to honor the family's decision to have it small and private. Instead, the actor is concentrating on organizing a memorial for Haim which is to be held in Los Angeles.

The music executives plan to release 10 albums of Jackson material between now and 2017 - the length of the deal. The first album in the deal was in 2009 "This Is It"; the second release will be available in November and will feature a track Jackson wrote with Lenny Kravitz for his "Invincible" album.
