Is Hollywood ready to resume film production?
In this episode:
- “Jurassic World: Dominion” and “The Bold and the Beautiful” are going back into production for the first time since the COVID-19 shutdown.
- Michael Strahan admits he couldn’t “speak up” behind the scenes on “Live with Kelly.”
- And is Kanye West getting ready to make Yeezy-breezy beautiful, beauty products?
Here’s a closer look at some of today’s stories:
The show must go on
“Jurassic World: Dominion” starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard is going back into production in the UK after shutting down a month into its shoot due to the pandemic.
Universal is throwing in around $5 million for extra on-set safety measures, reports said, including temperature checks, testing and cleaning.
Apparently, anyone not acting in a scene on camera must wear a mask, and there will be a private medical facility overseeing the cast and crew.
Michael Strahan gets candid
Michael Strahan revealed he felt he couldn’t “speak up and raise his voice” behind the scenes on “Live with Kelly” — fearing reprisals as a black man.
The “Good Morning America” host spoke out during a town hall on racism with Bob Iger on June 4 in front of all ABC and Disney employees.
Strahan fell out with co-host Kelly Ripa when he moved full-time to “GMA” in 2016.
We’re told: “Michael said that there were some very tense situations with executives who got argumentative and loud on the show, and he was very aware he couldn’t speak up or raise his voice as he was worried he would be seen as threatening.”
While Michael didn’t refer to “Live” by name, sources tell us he was referring to the show with his comments. In January, Strahan talked about the turmoil on the show and said he thought he was joining “Live” to be a partner — not a “sidekick.”
Kanye West might be competing with his wife Kim Kardashian and sister-in-law Kylie Jenner’s popular beauty brands soon. On June 5, the musician’s intellectual property holding company, Mascotte Holdings, Inc. filed an application to trademark the Yeezy brand in the area of cosmetics, according to documents submitted to the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
The category includes makeup like foundation, concealer and more, toothpaste, deodorant, perfume, self-tanning lotions and hair care products among other products. The application also included uniquely-West additions like incense, room fragrances, scented stones, aromatherapy pillows and more.
