Lively is currently in talks with Amazon Studios for a scripted fashion series, the company’s head of entertainment, Jennifer Salke, revealed at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit this week.
Amazon Studio head Jennifer Salke surprised the crowd at the Vanity Fair New Establishment Summit on Wednesday by making two announcements: that the Emmy-winning Marvelous Mrs. Maisel would return for a second season in December (after she showed a short clip from an upcoming episode), and that actress Blake Lively will develop a scripted series for the streaming network. She hinted that Lively’s show had a fashion theme and a merchandising component.
Salke said she decided to pull the trigger on the Lively project moments before she walked onstage. “I just told business affairs I’m going to do this,” she continued, noting that Lively was currently in Rome, sleeping. “She’ll wake up to it.”
Divulging that the deal is just “a moment from done”, Salke described Lively as “a force of nature: ambitious, smart and talented,” reports Variety.
“Blake also has a huge appetite for a big scripted show with a really interesting writer who I can’t talk about yet,” Salke revealed at the Summit. “[They] will bring to life a scripted show that will be excellent and culturally relevant and original and all those things, but it will also have a connection to a merchandising opportunity,”
The most recent Deadpool 2 rumor is that Blake Lively may be joining her husband Ryan Reynolds in the new movie. However, considering that The Shallows star is currently about four months pregnant with new baby, it’s highly unlike that she will be ready to film Deadpool 2. That doesn’t mean that Ryan Reynolds will drop out of the film though! The Shallows star became pregnant with her second baby back in April, after celebrating her first baby James’ birthday in December. She did not confirm until much later when her baby bump began to show… Ooo will she, won;t she?
Blake Lively fans prepare to get giddy because the lifestyle website that she’s been teasing us with for the last year is finally here. OK, not here at this exact moment but it’s happening very soon… As in next week!
According to the source who also confirmed the launch date, the name of the actress’ secret project will be “Preserve.”
So what can we expect? The insider tells E! News: “Preserve will focus on artisans and products, many hand-made one-of-a-kind items all selected by Blake. Items will be available for purchase through the site. Preserve is all about story-telling through video. Blake will be in some of these videos.”
We can already hear the “eeeps!” of excitement around the globe.
The 26-year-old’s site sounds completely different from the lifestyle brand that Ellen DeGeneres just announced last week. It does, however, also seem like it might share some similarities with Gwyneth Paltrow’s famed Goop blog and Lauren Conrad’s The Little Market. But there’s really no need for further speculation, what with the big reveal almost here and all!
There are no deals in place with cast, but Alloy Entertainment is hoping the Fab Four will return “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” is getting another sequel, as Alloy Entertainment is developing “Sisterhood Everlasting,” which is based on the book of the same title by bestselling author Ann Brashares, the company announced on Wednesday.
While there are no deals in place with the original cast, Blake Lively, Alexis Bledel, America Ferrara and Amber Tamblyn have expressed interest in reprising their roles and are in various stages of discussions to return, an individual familiar with the sequel told TheWrap.
One member of the original “Sisterhood” is set to return, as Ken Kwapis will return to direct from a screenplay by Liz Garcia, who will adapt Brashares’ novel.
“Sisterhood Everlasting” finds that the four friends have grown apart in the ten years since the last film in the franchise, though Tibby tries to bridge the distance by reuniting the girls for a trip that will change their lives forever.
“The Sisterhood series is one of Alloy’s most cherished properties and we are looking forward to continuing its legacy with ‘Sisterhood Everlasting’ nearly a decade after the first film was released,” said Alloy president Leslie Morgenstein, who will produce with Elysa Dutton and Christine Sacani. “The original film brought together an incredible group of talent who we hope to unite for fans once again.”
Along with Alcon Entertainment, Alloy was responsible for the first two “Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants” films that were released in 2005 and 2008.
Barbie is coming to a screen near you. And not in doll form – this foray into cinema will see a real-life actress (or actor?) bring the famous character to life in a new comedy that Sony Pictures are hoping to begin shooting by the end of the year. So, it got us thinking… who should step into Barbie’s immaculate, high-heeled shoes? Hollywood being Hollywood, there are plenty of glossy blonde actresses available, from Blake Lively and Amanda Seyfried to Dakota Fanning and Margot Robbie.
Or producers could opt for a less glamorous choice, say, Katie Price? Or Paris Hilton? There’s always original Barbie Girl songstress Lene Nystrøm of Aqua fame, or Moldovian-Ukrainian model Valeria Lukyanova, dubbed “Human Barbie” thanks to her resemblance to the famous figurine. And if casting agents are feeling particularly left-field, they could always consider a bloke for the role. Orlando Bloom’s Legolas certainly had the blonde, flowing locks, or if they’re looking for someone au natural there’s always Chris Hemsworth or, er, Robbie Savage?

After tonnes of roumers that Blake and Ryan were expecting her first child, many people got really excited. The rumor first originated with OK magazine, who speculated that Blake may have been trying to hide a baby bump while walking a red carpet. Reynolds, who married Lively in September 2012, hasn’t been shy about wanting kids in the past.
The same goes for Blake, who has said that she would like to have a big family someday. Don’t start planning the baby shower just yet, though. According to Blake’s rep, there’s no bun in her oven. “The story is 100% false,” the rep tells the Daily News, “Blake is not pregnant.” So while it may happen down the line, those two aren’t set to become parents just yet.
The couple are rumoured to have hit a rocky patch in their marriage, with insiders claiming that Gossip Girl beauty Blake is at her wits end over her hubby’s alleged controlling behaviour. However, despite the claims the married couple looked blissfully happy, according to eyewitnesses, as they spent an afternoon together taking their mums on a shopping spree and then a sushi dinner date to plush restaurant Nobu.
“They dined at Nobu in NYC with their mums,” an eyewitness told Life & Style.
“They were so cute!” An onlooker gushed, adding that “each mum was holding a bag from Gucci, like Ryan and Blake had taken them shopping before heading to Nobu.”
Blake has previously spoken about just how important Mother’s Day is to her family, admitting that if she ever missed the occasion, she would have hell to pay for.
“We still celebrate Mother’s Day. It’s like a national holiday in our family, so if I don’t fly home for Mother’s Day, I’m in huge trouble,” the actress admitted.
Despite the happy sighting of the couple, insiders have claimed all is far from well in their marriage and that Ryan has become a control freak, allegedly dictating what 25-year-old Blake wears and halting her work schedule.
“Ryan was very loving and sweet to Blake before they married,” a “friend” told In Touch magazine. “But not long after they said their vows, his demeanor started to change.”

In other news… Blake IS dating Leo!! The couple have been nearly inseparable since May, when they’ve taken their newfound romance on an international tour de love. But can their relationship be sustained by constant vacations or are they just avoiding reality? Since becoming inseparable after attending the Cannes Film Festival together just one month ago, Leo has romanced Blake in Monte Carlo, France, Portofino, Italy and now, the idyllic California resort town of Carmel; the two first were seen hanging out with friends back in November.
But we worry, is she just using Leo as a rebound romance after breaking up with longtime boyfriend Penn Badgley, or do she and Mr. DiCaprio actually have a genuine shot at love?
Blake Lively and Scarlett Johansson are battling it out for the chance to star in Gravity.
A film about astronauts repairing the Hubble telescope who are hit with an avalanche of satellite junk. In a plot akin to “Cast Away,” the surviving astronaut must fight her way back to Earth, where she hopes to reunite with her daughter.
The project originally was set up at Universal as a vehicle for Angelina Jolie, but it moved to Warners, where it hit debris of its own: Jolie left the project, partially because of the studio’s balking at paying her £10 million fee.
Both actresses are repped by CAA. Blake is also is repped by Untitled Entertainment.
