EMI Responds to Lily Allen's Album Delay Attack

August 19, 2008 07:57:30 GMT


Lily Allen is facing a limbo in the release of her second album, mainly because her label is not very supportive of it. On contrary to rumors that said the delay was caused by her fear of battling with Katy Perry, the actual reason lays in EMI that have gone through many changes resulting in the stalling.

Writing on her MySpace blog, Lily explained the album is actually ready for the market but the people who used to work with her have mostly either been fired or left the company. "The album has been finished for a while now, I don't really know what's going on with it," Lily said. "The record industry is a very political place at the moment and I am on EMI Records. Lots of people have been fired or have taken redundancy recently as the company was taken over by a private equity firm called Terra Firma. Many of these people were people assigned to my projects and now I don't quite know what's going on."

'Spider-Man' Villain James Franco the Next Jack Ryan?


August 19, 2008 05:01:56 GMT


Following report on director Sam Raimi being attached to the "Jack Ryan" reboot movie, an interesting tidbit on the casting has developed. It is now rumored that James Franco, the actor who played Peter Parker's best friend-turned enemy, Harry Osborn in "Spider-Man" series, has been considered by Raimi to take the lead role in the Tom Clancy's adaptation, "Untitled Jack Ryan Project".

By that, it means that Franco has been eyed to fill the shoes of CIA analyst Jack Ryan, who has been depicted previously by Alec Baldwin, Harrison Ford and Ben Affleck. Offering a contrast to the possible casting of the 30-year-old though, CHUD mentioned that Paramount Pictures and Raimi have clashed over the idea, especially since Paramount weren't so eager to hire Franco due to his box office modest records.
