'John Wick 5' is in early development despite how 'Chapter 4' ended

Yeah, we're thinking he'll be back. Just two months after "John Wick: Chapter 4" appeared to definitively end the Keanu Reeves action series, Lionsgate has confirmed a sequel is in the works. The studio's motion picture group chair, Joe Drake, casually revealed during an earnings call that a fifth "John Wick" is in early development. It will be in addition to the other upcoming projects set in the "John Wick" universe, including the TV series "The Continental" and the "Ballerina" spinoff film. "You can rely on a regular cadence of 'John Wick,'" Drake declared. This is despite the fact that — spoiler alert for "John Wick: Chapter 4" — the most recent entry seemed to kill off John Wick, though the ending was ambiguous enough that it could be reversed if Lionsgate decided it would actually like some more money. Say a prayer for Keanu Reeves' knees.

Jane Fonda: Robert Redford has 'an issue with women'

Jane Fonda has entered the "no Fs given" phase of her life, assuming she hasn't always been there. During a conversation at the Cannes Film Festival on Friday, the actress got surprisingly frank about co-star Robert Redford. "Well, I was in love with him," she declared, according to Vulture. "I made four films with him, and for three, I was in love with him. Which meant I had a really good time." But "he did not like to kiss," Fonda went on to say, "and he was always in a bad mood, and I always thought it was my fault." By their most recent collaboration, 2017's "Our Souls at Night," Fonda said she finally realized it "wasn't my fault" when Redford was "in a bad mood," and she then casually added, "He's a very good person … He just has an issue with women." Vulture notes that Fonda "did not elaborate" on this, thereby pulling a David Lynch

Is this a new Taylor Swift song about her split from Joe Alwyn?

Ready to head into the long weekend screaming, crying and throwing up? Taylor Swift has debuted a new song called "You're Losing Me" as part of a special edition of "Midnights," which is currently only available to fans at her East Rutherford shows. But alleged lyrics began surfacing online on Friday. According to People, Swift questions in the song whether to "throw out everything we built or keep it" and sings that "my heart won't start anymore for you." The reported lyric that jumped out the most, though, was "I wouldn't marry me either, a pathological people pleaser." It's not clear when the song was written — she described it as a "never before heard 'Midnights' vault track" — but fans couldn't help but take this to imply that Joe Alwyn didn't want to marry Swift and that it may have factored into the end of their relationship. Coincidentally, "You're Losing Me" is also what Swifties said after listening to her collaboration with Ice Spice.

Bella Thorne confirms engagement to entrepreneur Mark Emms

Bella Thorne is shaking up her relationship with a shiny new ring. The actress confirmed to Vogue that she is engaged to entrepreneur Mark Emms after meeting him at Cara Delevingne's birthday party last year. "It was love at first sight as the sun rose," Thorne said. According to Vogue, he proposed earlier this month with a "10-plus-carat emerald-cut diamond ring." Thorne was previously engaged to Benjamin Mascolo, but they called things off last year before getting married. "Their conflicting schedules led to a lot of time apart that eventually resulted in the breakup, but the two have parted ways amicably," a source told People. Now, though, Emms wants this Thorne to be at his side.

Your favorite HBO shows won't be back anytime soon

Television fans, now may be the time to pick up some new hobbies. HBO's head of drama Francesca Orsi shared some updates with Deadline on when a few of the network's biggest shows may return as the Hollywood writers strike continues. According to Orsi, "Euphoria" won't be back until at least 2025, as "we can't start shooting" the third season yet because there aren't enough scripts done. "The Last of Us" season 2 was targeting a premiere "some time in 2025," though that was before the strike started. "The White Lotus" season 3 was also "ideally looking to go in 2024 but there's some question about timing of the strike," Orsi said. In other news, Orsi confirmed "there is no intention" of making any "Succession" spinoffs, meaning our proposed "Where There's a Willa, There's a Way" series will just have to remain fan fiction.
