Broadway producer James L. Nederlander says he is confident that a resolution can be reached in a lawsuit filed against him, as well as Michael Jackson, over rights to a planned musical based on the singer’s “Thriller” video.

John Landis, who directed the iconic music video, sued the two parties Wednesday in Santa Monica, Calif. claiming that he owns half of the video’s dramatic rights and that Jackson doesn’t have the proper rights to pursue a deal with Nederlander to bring “Thriller” to the stage.

In a statement Thursday, Nederlander said: “I’m confident that these past differences can be worked out.”

Landis’ lawyer said Wednesday the director will sue to stop the production if necessary

Madame Tussauds Washington, D.C. announced it will unveil a new wax statue of First Lady Michelle Obama in March, reports

The museum’s senior sculptor Colin Jackson was seen in a photo released Wednesday touching up the clay mold of the figure’s head. Upon completion, Michelle’s likeness will join her husband Barack Obama’s wax figure, which was unveiled in February 2008, in a replica of the Oval Office.

Michelle Obama is the third first lady to be immortalized in wax by Madame Tussauds Washington D.C., joining Jacqueline Kennedy and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.


Serena Williams, Australian Open

Serena Williams, Australian Open

Serena Williams overcame heat stress to reach the Australian Open semi-finals Wednesday, but her furious opponent insisted she scored a lucky break when the stadium roof was closed, reports the AFP.

The three-time Australian champion seemed down and out after conceding a set to eighth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova in heatwave conditions, only to storm back for a 5-7, 7-5, 6-1 win after the roof was shut. Kuznetsova was furious that the tournament’s extreme heat policy meant play was suspended for 15 minutes after the first set as the roof slowly was closed and the rest of the match was played under cover.

The Russian said she had control of the match and was likely to have advanced to a semi-final meeting with fourth-seeded compatriot Elena Dementieva had the match been played in the same conditions throughout.


Denzel Washington

For the third year in a row, Denzel Washington comes in on top as America’s favorite movie star, beating Clint Eastwood at No. 2 and John Wayne and Will Smith, in a tie for No. 3, according to The Harris Poll.

Washington, who is about to begin shooting “The Book of Eli” opposite Jennifer Beals, also ranked No. 1 among Baby Boomers (those aged 44-62), and among Democrats, the company revealed in a press release Thursday.

Harrison Ford came in at No. 5, followed by Julia Roberts (No. 6), Tom Hanks (No. 7, down from No. 2), Johnny Depp (No. 8, down from No. 3), and two new additions to the list tied at No. 9 – Angelina Jolie and Morgan Freeman.

As the nation’s first black president settles in to the White House, Harris points out that the latest top ten list is one of the more diverse; three of the actors are African American.


Craig Robinson

Craig Robinson

Craig Robinson, the brother of First Lady Michelle Obama, has signed a deal with Gotham Books to write a tome described by the Associated Press as “part tribute to his family and part inspirational guide.”

“I’ve been privileged to know some extraordinary people in my life,” Robinson, whose “A Game of Character” will be published next year, said in a statement issued Thursday.

“I’ve watched as my sister Michelle, a rock of a mother, became a leader in her own right,” he added. “My brother-in law, President Barack Obama, who I knew from the first time I met him had something special, continues to inspire all of us.”

Robinson, who coaches men’s basketball at Oregon State University, introduced his sister last summer at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.
