Neighbours Kylie and Jason reunited

Former lovers Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan are being reunited on the small screen. The ex-Neighbours heartthrobs will perform a sketch together for The Kylie Show on ITV1. TV viewers will see Donovan send himself up and pretend not to know who the pop princess he once dated is. Their appearance together takes place 20 years after their on-screen Neighbours wedding was one of TV's biggest events. The marriage of tomboy mechanic Charlene Mitchell and boy-next-door Scott Robinson was broadcast in Australia in 1987 and a year later in the UK. But Minogue left Donovan devastated when she ended the relationship in 1990 and began her affair with INXS star Michael Hutchence. Minogue went on to become a huge star, shedding her squeaky clean image, while Donovan's pop and musical career collapsed and he turned to drugs. Donovan, 39, now a father-of-two, made a comeback after appearing in last year's series of I'm a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here! In Saturday night's ITV show, Donovan thinks Minogue is a fan who wants his autograph. He signs her script before Minogue, 39, reminds him of their Neighbours history and that they dated for years in real life. The Kylie Show, in which Minogue also performs on a bucking bronco, is broadcast at 9.35pm on Saturday night on ITV1.

Bob Dylan film released at Christmas

I'm Not There is a biographical film reflecting the life of musician Bob Dylan. The iconic singer-songwriter will be depicted through seven distinct stages of his life by six different actors (Marcus Carl Franklin, Ben Whishaw, Heath Ledger, Christian Bale, Richard Gere, and Cate Blanchett). It was co-written and directed by Todd Haynes.
The film is said to tell its story using rather non-traditional techniques, much like the poetic narrative style utilized in Dylan's songwriting. "The film is going be inspired by Dylan's music and his ability to re-create and re-imagine himself time and time again," according to key producer, Christine Vachon. It was rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for language, some sexuality and nudity.The title I'm Not There is a reference to the Dylan outtake recorded during The Basement Tapes (Sessions). It was not included in the studio album The Basement Tapes and can only be found on the CD bootleg set The Genuine Basement Tapes and the later remastered version (still considered a bootleg) of that set A Tree With Roots. I'm Not There is one of the most famous and highly regarded outtakes, not just of the Basement Tapes, but Dylan’s whole career. It has never been officially released, though it is slated to appear on the film’s soundtrack.The production began filming in late July 2006 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. It premiered at the 34th Telluride Film Festival on August 31st and won the Grand Jury Prize and Best Actress honors for Blanchett at the 64th Venice Film Festival. It opened in theaters in Italy on September 7, 2007. It was also part of the Toronto International Film Festival and played on September 14, 2007.The film is out on December 21st in the UK.


Duran Duran video banned

.K. TV has banned a video for Duran Duran's collaboration with Justin Timberflake as the clip was too explicit.

Metallica new album in February

Metallica's new studio album looks set to hit the shelves in February.
The spoke with Lars on the Rick Rubin produced album. Here is part of what Lars had to say:'Fans may be stunned by the decision to waive longtime producer Bob Rock for Rubin. "But for our own sanity, our own creative survival, we needed to work with a different set of circumstances and dynamics," Ulrich says. "So we've been stripped of our defense mechanisms, and it's been very invigorating to be challenged again. Rick's taken everything we've known about making records and completely turned it upside down." 'Are the songs punchier, four or five minutes long? "Well, the most of the intros are four to five minutes," he says. "I don't know — Metallica and short songs just don't go that well together. But whereas 'St. Anger' was an exercise in over-pummelling the listener, these new songs echo some of our stuff from the '80s- long, epic journeys through different musical landscapes, heavier, but a lot more melodic." The next album, set for release next February, its almost finished, with the band will be polishing up vocal mixes until December.
