Stephanie Beatriz to Star in Peacock’s Live-Action Film Adaptation of “Twisted Metal” Video Game

Stephanie Beatriz is getting things twisted

The 41-year-old Colombian and Bolivian American actress will star in Peacock’s Twisted Metal, the live-action video game adaptation starring Anthony Mackie.

Stephanie BeatrizBeatriz will play the character of Quiet, a ferocious, badass car thief who acts purely on instinct – you couldn’t stop her any more than a manhole could stop a volcano. Coming from a community that oppressed her into silence, Quiet’s wish is to find her place in this dark, chaotic world. But when she becomes clouded by her need for revenge, Quiet forms an unlikely, antagonistic bond with John Doe (Mackie).

From Cobra Kai writer Michael Jonathan SmithTwisted Metal is a half-hour, high-octane action comedy, based on an original take by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick about a motor-mouthed outsider offered a chance at a better life, but only if he can successfully deliver a mysterious package across a post-apocalyptic wasteland. With the help of a trigger-happy car thief, he’ll face savage marauders driving vehicles of destruction and other dangers of the open road, including a deranged clown who drives an all too familiar ice cream truck.

Alongside Mackie and showrunner Smith, executive producers also include Kitao Sakurai—who will also direct multiple episodes—Reese, Wernick, Will Arnett, and Marc Forman via their Electric Avenue production company, Jason Spire of Inspire Entertainment, Peter Principato of Artists First, Asad Qizilbash, and Carter Swan from PlayStation Productions, Hermen Hulst, Head of PlayStation Studios.

The series is co-produced by Sony Pictures Television, PlayStation Productions, and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.

Beatriz most recently made a splash as the voice of Mirabel in Disney’s Encanto. Prior to that, she starred in Matthew Dunster’s hit theatrical production 2:22 on London’s West End and also played Carla in the Warner Bros. film adaptation of Lin Manuel Miranda’s musical In The Heights.

Beatriz is best known for playing fan-favorite Detective Rosa Diaz in the NBC comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine throughout the show’s eight-season run.

Jessica Alba to Star In & Executive Produce Netflix’s Film Adaptation of “Confessions on the 7:45” Novel

Jessica Alba is headed to the confessional

The 40-year-old half-Mexican American actress and entrepreneur will executive produce and headline a series based on Lisa Unger’s international bestseller Confessions on the 7:45, currently in development at Netflix.

Jessica AlbaCharise Castro Smith, co-writer and co-director of Disney’s Oscar-winning amimated film Encanto, is attached to adapt Unger’s novel. She’ll also serve as showrunner and executive produces with Alba and 3 ArtsMichael Rotenberg and Oly Obst.

Confessions on the 7:45 is a psychological thriller in which a working mom (Alba) meets a stranger on a train as she’s commuting home who upends her life. As her life unravels and betrayals are revealed, she questions whether we can ever truly know the people closest to us.

Alba, a working mom herself, had a strong reaction when she read Confessions on the 7:45, leading to her involvement in the project.

“I could not put this book down. The moment I read the line, ‘If you want to keep a secret you must first hide it from yourself,’ I was hooked,” Alba said. “This book is about trying to bury secrets and the shame we carry until the truth exposes us. I can’t think of a more exciting person to partner with on this project. Charise is so ridiculously talented and truly gets every nuance under the skin of these characters and their web of lies.”

This would mark the second project Alba is starring in and executive producing for Netflix.

She also has the upcoming action thriller Trigger Warning. In the movie directed by Mouly Surya and produced by Thunder Road, Alba plays an active-duty Special Forces officer who takes ownership of her grandfather’s property after his sudden death.

Alba, a Golden Globe-nominated actress, advocate, bestselling author and founder of The Honest Company, has made more than 25 feature films that have earned a combined box office total of $800 million-plus, including Fantastic Four and Sin City.

In television, she and Gabrielle Union recently headlined and executive produced the action drama series, L.A.’s Finest, which has performed well on Netflix following its original run on Spectrum and Fox.

Alba is also the author of the New York Times bestselling book The Honest Life and co-author of A Bear to Share.

Ariana DeBose, West Side Story

DeBose is the second actress to win the Oscar for portraying the iconic Broadway character, following Rita Moreno‘s win in 1962.

DeBose, a North Carolina native, has also made history as the first queer woman of color to win an acting Oscar.

“Imagine this little girl in the backseat of a white Ford focus, look into her eyes and you see an openly queer woman of color, an Afro-Latina who found her strength in life through art,” DeBose said during her acceptance speech.

“So to anybody who has ever questioned your identity— ever, ever ever—or you find yourself living in the gray spaces, I promise you this: There is indeed a place for us.”

DeBose’s other accolades during this awards season include a BAFTA, Golden Globe, Critics Choice, and SAG Award.

DeBose is currently filming Marvel’s Kraven The Hunter in the role of Calypso, which she says has been challenging in a way she hasn’t experienced before.

Adassa to Perform “Encanto” Hit “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” at Academy Awards Show

It’s official… Adassa has a date with Oscar.

The 35-year-old urban singer is set to perform the chart-topping single “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” alongside her Encanto voice cast mates.

Encanto

The 94th annual Academy Awards, another key movie song not mentioned in their release.

“We Don’t Talk About Bruno” will be performed on the awards show even though it wasn’t even submitted by Disney and songwriter Lin-Manuel Miranda for consideration in the category.

Miranda is a nominee for another tune from the same film, “Dos Oruguitas,” which will be performed by Sebastian Yatra.

The performance is reportedly planned to be a major highlight of the awards show and is being advertised as the first live performance of the smash hit song.

In addition to Adassa, other Encanto cast members set to take the stage to perform the song include Stephanie Beatriz, Mauro Castillo, Carolina Gaitan, and Diane Guerrero, along with Becky G and Luis Fonsi performing “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.”

“If there is a song that unites people this year [it is this one], and that is kind of the epitome to me of what movies can do, because people of all stripes, ethnicities, ages, color, background, around the world [are singing it] ad nauseum, and we are going to help them out so they sing it a little bit more. Our apologies to the parents,” Packer laughed.

The 94th Academy Awards will be held on Sunday at the Dolby Theatre and will be televised live on ABC at 8:00 pm EDT/5:00 pm PDT and in more than 200 territories worldwide.

American Sign Language (ASL) provided by Certified Deaf Interpreters, and live closed captioning and audio description will be available during the live broadcast.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Wins Guild of Music Supervisors Award for “Encanto” Track “Dos Oruguitas”

Lin-Manuel Miranda has wormed his way to a special award…

The 42-year-old Puerto Rican songwriter, composer & lyricist’s Encanto single “Dos Oruguitas” has won Best Song Written and/or Recorded for a Film at the GMS Awards, presented by the Guild of Music Supervisors.

Lin-Manuel MirandaMiranda’s “Dos Oruguitas,” performed by Sebastian Yatra, is nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Original Song category. So this win could prove that the Hamilton musical creator is gaining momentum in the Oscar race in the closing days of Oscar balloting? (The final-round voting period for the Oscars runs from March 17-22.)

However, Miranda’s chief rival for the Oscar, Billie Eilish and Finneas’No Time to Die” from the James Bond film of the same name, wasn’t nominated in this category. Many believe Eilish and Finneas’ single is still the song to beat for the Academy Awards.

While the Oscar for best original score is presented only to the songwriter, the GMS award in this equivalent category is presented to the songwriter, the artist (in this case, Yatra) and the music supervisor (in this case, Tom MacDougall).

In the television categories, Janet Lopez won the Best Music Supervision – Television Comedy or Musical award for her work on Season 1 of The White Lotus, while Stephanie Diaz-Matos and Eric Medina were among the winners in the Best Music Supervision – Reality Television category for their work on Season 1 of Sweet Life: Los Angeles.

In the video game categories, Raphaella Lima was among the winners in the Best Music Supervision in a Video Game category for her work on FIFA 22.

The Guild of Music Supervisors is a nonprofit that was founded in 2010 with the goal of promoting the role of the music supervisor in all forms of media.

The GMS Awards don’t have categories to honor film scorers. Their focus is on music supervision in film, television, documentaries, trailers, advertising and video games. For more information on the ceremony, visit GMSAwards.com.

Here’s the complete list of winners for the 12th Annual Guild of Music Supervisors Awards:

Carolina Gaitán & Her “Encanto” Cast Mates May Perform “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” at Academy Awards

Carolina Gaitán could have a date with Oscar

The Academy Awards are heralding the “first live performance of ‘We Don’t Talk About Bruno,’” a song performed by the 37-year-old Colombian actress and singer and her Encanto cast mates, for the awards show on Sunday, March 27.

Encanto“We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” from Disney’s chart-topping Disney animated film Encanto topped the Billboard Hot 100 for five consecutive weeks, an astonishing showing for a multi-character theatrical piece.

The song is performed by Gaitán, Mauro Castillo, Adassa, Rhenzy Feliz, Diane Guerrero, Stephanie Beatriz and the cast of Encanto on the soundtrack, which is currently in its ninth nonconsecutive week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200.

Another of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s songs from Encanto,Dos Oruguitas,” is competing for best original song at the Oscars.

The Academy hasn’t officially announced that all five best original song nominees will be performed on the show, but that is widely expected. If they are, on top of the performance of “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” the show will have a strong music focus.

If the Oscars are able to book all of the original performers, Sebastián Yatra would perform “Dos Oruguitas,” Beyoncé would perform “Be Alive” from King RichardVan Morrison would perform “Down to Joy” from Belfast, Billie Eilish would perform No Time to Die from the film of the same name, and Reba McEntire would perform “Somehow You Do” from Four Good Days.

Lin-Manuel Miranda’s on Cloud Nine

The 42-year-old Puerto Rican composer/lyricist’s soundtrack for Disney’s Encanto soundtrack has logged a ninth nonconsecutive week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart dated March 19.

EncantoThe soundtrack contains eight original songs written by Miranda, including the chart-topping “We Don’t Talk About Bruno,” and produced by Mike Elizondo that were recorded by the voice cast, and 27 score pieces composed by Germaine Franco.

The set earned 72,500 equivalent album units in the U.S. in the week ending March 10 (down 9%), according to MRC Data.

In addition, Encanto has surpasses 1 million equivalent album units earned in the U.S., as the latest tracking week brings its to-date sum to 1.03 million. The soundtrack album was released on November 19, before the film arrived in U.S. theaters on November 24. The film was released via the Disney+ streaming service a month later (December 24). The album spent its first week at No. 1 on the January 15, 2022-dated chart.

In the last five years, only two albums have spent at least nine weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard 200: Encanto and Morgan Wallen’s Dangerous: The Double Album (10 weeks in 2021).

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week in the U.S. based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units, compiled by MRC Data.
