Warner Bros. delayed the start of filming for the yet-to-be-titled film, which was originally expected to begin shooting in March 2019 (even though it’s yet to be formally greenlit).

[CREATIVES] BUT WHY! SOMEONE JUST MADE A MASHUP OF DRAKE’ VIEWS AND GAME OF THRONES AND IT IS UNDOUBTEDLY EPIC. TAKE A LOOK:
ENTERTAINMENT

Tony K, a Detroit-based producer, just made a mashup of some of Drake’s better songs and the music of Game of Thrones, called Views From the Throne because … well, it’s hard coming up with a good reason for why someone would do this, but it’s fun to listen to regardless.   (Last year, Tony K engineered a similar GOT concoction, but with Tupac tracks.) Most of the Drake cuts in this mashup are from his earlier work, and a...

It’s also in need of a successor to Chief Executive Bob Iger. A Netflix acquisition including founder Reed Hastings might just answer both dreams – though it would be pricey, but creatives aren’t happy about this move by Disney.
