Lawyer Asks Judge to Hold Lil Wayne's Trial Until Current Prison Term Completed


March 18, 2010 03:30:23 GMT


A lawyer for incarcerated rapper Lil Wayne has asked a judge in Yuma County, Arizona to postpone a planned trial on weapons and drug charges until after the star has completed his current prison sentence. The rapper, real name Dwayne Carter, is serving 12 months behind bars at New York's Rikers Island prison, after he was convicted of illegal weapons possession in an earlier case.

Yuma County Superior Court Judge Mark Wayne Reeves issued a bench warrant for his arrest on Tuesday, March 16 after he failed to show up for a court date in the state. The warrant relates to an incident in 2008 when border police allegedly found cocaine, ecstasy, and a handgun on Wayne's tour bus. The rapper pleaded not guilty to the charges.

'Ghostbusters 3': Ivan Reitman May Be Kicked Out for Younger Director


March 18, 2010 02:50:00 GMT


Since talks about "Ghostbusters 3" began, all signs indicated that Ivan Reitman will return to the helming position. Now that he has signed on for the said position, there are words that Columbia Pictures does not want him to be involved in the film because they want younger crew, including the director. This reportedly brings a threat to the development of the movie since Reitman, in a way, has a power to scrap the project if there is anything he does not like.

According to New York Magazine, Reitman and three original principals of the franchise, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis, have a deal which mentions that "if any of the four of them don't like any element of a new 'Ghostbusters', they can singlehandedly veto and kill the project", which means "it has to be unanimously approved before going forward."
