Legendary Christian singer and actor Pat Boone is praising NBC's "A.D. The Bible Continues" for "fighting every kind of moral depravity" on television today.
The best-selling author, whose career in music, television, and movies has spanned more than 60 years, is appearing as a guest on this week's installment of the show's companion web series, "Beyond A.D." In an interview with The Christian Post, Boone drew parallels between "A.D." and the biblically-based entertainment that was available at the start of his career.
"There was [ the 1956 film] 'The Ten Commandments' and there were great films, and they really had a great impact on people," said Boone. "It was a more moral and rich time — now the Gospel is being preached to people who don't want to hear it and there are all kinds of enemies. Right now, 'A.D.' is fighting every kind of cultural and moral depravity on TV and cable channels and on regular broadcast. You have to fight to be heard and fight for the ratings, [and] it's winning." more >>

Barely a year ago, one of the stars of the action movie franchise "Bad Boys," Martin Lawrence, announced that he will be coming back as Detective Marcus Burnett in "Bad Boys 3." Since then, not much has been heard about the sequel, until recently.
According to a report in Deadline, "Bad Boys 3" may be close to happening after all. The report says that the movie may have found a director to helm the next installment, and it's not going to be Michael Bay. Joe Carnahan is said to be in talks to take on the project. Carnahan is known for his work in TV, with "State of Affairs" and "The Blacklist." His feature films include the Liam Neeson-starrer "The Grey," the big screen adaptation of "The A-Team" and the dark comedy "Stretch."
Sony Pictures is said to be keen on moving the movie forward, according to another report in Cinema Blend. They are reportedly wanting to "fast track" this so that Will Smith will have something to consider immediately after finishing work with "Suicide Squad." Will Smith will hopefully consider returning to reprise his role as Detective Mike Lowry. more >>
