Edgar Wright Heads For Grasshopper Jungle
He’s attached to the YA adaptation
Though he left Marvel’s Ant-Man, it appears Edgar Wright hasn’t got the idea of insects completely out of his system. Sony has now secured his services for the adaptation of Andrew Smith Dutton’s novel Grasshopper Jungle.
It’s an intriguing project for Wright, and very different from anything he’s done before despite Scott Pilgrim’s blend of youthful issues and fantasy. Beautiful Girls writer Scott Rosenberg is adapting the story, which finds an Iowa teenager in the grip of hormonal madness who, along with his friends, somehow unleashes a genetically engineered plague that causes six-foot-tall praying mantises upon their community and beyond who end up getting up to everything the teens wish they could – having sex, eating and fighting. Teenagers today, huh? Bloomin’ typical: if they’re not playing with their X-stations or their digital watches, they’re playing God.
This will not be Wright’s next film – he most recently re-committed to developing Baby Driver, one of his long-gestating projects. And also lurking around his development chamber is the movie version of The Night Stalker he’s been working on for Disney and Johnny Depp.
Nicki Minaj shining a light on the differences on acceptable sexuality from white women and black women.
While it has a good deal to do with color, it also has to do with the fact of how her sexuality is used.
The women above her could arguably be said to be catering to the sexual needs/wants/fantasies of men (Sports Illustrated is ESPECIALLY known for catering to a male gaze.) While Nicki Minaj has continuously used her sexuality to empower herself. Her sexuality isn’t for men, it’s for her own self. And THAT is a huge problem. Sexuality that isn’t designed for male consumption is deemed unacceptable and threatening. She is powerful, demanding, uncompromising, and men are weak, so that scares them.
And it’s also because she’s of Indian/Black background, no doubt about it. It’s not just racist, it’s also sexist.
Nicki Minaj IS NOT INDIAN she is born in Trinidad of South Asian/African decent..check your #factz
