Selena Gomez Sets a Stolen Car on Fire in "Back to You." Is this what happens when fantasy and reality meet? Selena Gomez just premiered the music video for "Back to You," directed by Scott Cudmore. It opens at a party, with a bored Gomez locking eyes with a mystery man across the room. They soon meet in private, where she asks, "Do you want to steal a car?" Without hesitation, he says yes, and so begins their journey to the countryside. "Where are we going?" the man asks her. Without a set destination, Gomez suggests visiting Italy, France, Canada, Russia and ... Michigan. After stopping in a grassy field, Gomez grows tired of picking apples and posing for Polaroids. Her paramour then sends her a paper airplane, made from a wanted poster. Gomez notices their photos on it -- it turns out they're wanted for public nuisance and grand theft auto -- and simply rolls her eyes. "I'm not going to jail," she shouts, later adding, "We have to burn the car." "What? No way!" the man protests. "That car is life." "Jail is death!" Gomez fires back. The 25-year-old singer wastes no time setting the stolen car ablaze, horrifying her partner in crime. Aghast, he yells, "I can't believe you actually burned it!" "Well, I'm not going to jail," Gomez tells him. "I'm not going to jail. That's so stupid!" "You're too passionate!" the man shouts. "Where are you going?" Storming off, Gomez says, "Back to the party!" The camera then pans to Gomez, in her original party dress, looking bored as another guest talks her ear off. It leaves viewers to wonder: Was Gomez's road trip a fantasy or was it reality? (Eonline)

Doug Liman Circling 'Cannonball Run'. The director is looking to steer the remake of the popular Burt Reynolds-Farrah Fawcett 1981 car-race film. High-octane director Doug Liman is revving up his engines for a remake of The Cannonball Run. The filmmaker behind Edge of Tomorrow and Mr. and Mrs. Smith is in early talks to direct the modern take on the 1981 comedy hit that was helmed by master stuntman Hal Needham, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. The premise involves a group of rule-breaking misfits that team up to compete in a cross-country road race from Connecticut to California. The initial movie was an all-star endeavor toplined by Burt Reynolds, Roger Moore, Farah Fawcett, Dean Martin, Dom DeLuise and a young Jackie Chan. Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant wrote the script for the new incarnation. Rawson Marshall Thurber was circling the project last year, but his focus is now on Red Notice, an action project with Dwayne Johnson. Liman is in the middle of postproduction and scheduling reshoots for Chaos Walking, his adaptation of a YA novel by Patrick Ness that stars Tom Holland and Daisy Ridley. (Hollywood Reporter)

Action-Thriller '122' Becomes First Arab Film Made for 4DX. The film comes from Iraqi director Yasir AlYasiri and producer Saif Oraibi. 122, the upcoming action-thriller from rising Iraqi director Yasir AlYasiri, is set to become the first Arab film made for the immersive 4DX format. The movie stars Ahmed Dawood (Brooks, Meadows and Lovely Faces), Amina Khalil (Sheikh Jackson), Ahmad Al Fishawy (Sheikh Jackson), and Tarek Lotfy (Between Two Worlds), and was written by Salah El Gehiny, whose latest film El-Khaliyyah (The Cell) earned $5 million in the Arab world and topped the Egyptian box office. "The film events take place on a bloody night in a place where we are supposed to feel safe," said Saif Oraibi, who produces the Iraqi-Egyptian film through his Maqam Production banner. "A young man and his beloved are struggling not to reach the hospital, but to run away from it. They are trying to survive the night." 122 is the second feature film by director Yasir AlYasiri. His debut On Borrowed Time, an Emirati production with a cast and crew from across the Arab world, made its world premiere at the 2018 Palm Springs International Film Festival. "In this film, I collaborate with Yasir AlYasiri, the first Iraqi director to enter the Egyptian film industry," added Orabi, behind the recent thrillers Monkey Talks and El-Haram el-Rabe. "Aside from the fact that I seek to work with fresh talent, I was keen on collaborating with AlYasiri for his distinct vision. Through making a 4D film, we seek to introduce a new experience to cinema-goers in Egypt and the Arab world that will increase their interaction with films." There are currently 4DX cinemas in the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Egypt and Qatar. (Hollywood Reporter)
