The Hangover III will begin production in September. The third instalment in the comedy movie series — starring Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis and Ed Helms - is planned for a May 2013 release, although a storyline is not yet known. President of Warner Bros. Pictures Group Jeff Robinov revealed he was delighted to have director Todd Phillips back on board for the project. He said in a statement: "We are extremely pleased to have Todd Phillips and the guys back together again for another 'Hangover' and we look forward to collaborating with them on another great movie." Craig Mazin and Todd will write the screenplay for the project. Speaking about the project previously, Limitless hunk Bradley claimed it would be unlikely to 'adhere to the structure' of the previous two movies. He said: "We adhered to the formula in the second one, for those of you who've seen it, and the third one, which would close the whole, sort of, trilogy, which now it would be a trilogy - even though we thought we would never make a second one, let alone anybody see the first one. I think it will take place in Los Angeles and maybe not adhere to the structure. It might be different."

Making geek chic

As a supermodel and chat show host, we're used to seeing Tyra Banks looking stunning in glamorous outfits. But in a new acting cameo in hit Disney show Shake It Up, the 38-year-old is unrecognisable as geeky librarian Ms Burke. With her hair held together with pencils, oversized glasses, ill-advised eye shadow all over her lids and eyebrows, Tyra looks a far cry from her usual self. Tyra's character joins forces with Shake It Up's main characters CeCe Jones (Bella Thorne) and Raquel 'Rocky' Blue (Zendaya) in the episode entitled Parent Trap. After Miss Burke overhears CeCe and Rocky talking about their plan to help CeCe's father re-propose to her mother, the librarian wants in on the action and gives them some help. Shake It Up, which started on the Disney Channel in 2010, has become a huge fit with youngsters, attracting 7.7million viewers. The show centres on best friends CeCe and Rocky whose dreams of becoming professional dancers become a reality when they land jobs as background dancers on teen dance show Shake It Up, Chicago! But still being teenage students, the pair has to adjust to their newfound social status and rivalry with Gunther and Tinka. Last year, producers revealed plans for a Shake It Up movie.

Action stations!

His propensity for using social networking website Twitter has landed him in hot water in the past. But Alec Baldwin put his burgeoning army of followers to good use this time, by mobilising them to take down an Internet troll who was harassing his girlfriend Hilaria Thomas. He called his supporters into action to target a user called Scarface Madam, who had been sending the yoga instructor abusive messages. The Hunt for Red October star said: "I have some wonderful, fully engaged and, sometimes critical people that I encounter here. Some of them, very few in fact, cross a line and, for example, attack my relationship with my daughter. One person, however, has really gone too far. That person is on twitter under the name @Scarfacemadam and ONLY to harass my girlfriend." Soon his near 800,000 strong groups of fans were swamping the rogue user with abusive messages, forcing the unidentified individual to close the account. Soon after the movie hunk also deleted most of his tweets calling for action. However he did tell his fans, "She terminated," much to their delight.
