The Movies

Some of La La Land's most recognizable movie props in the filmmaking history are finally being released to the public -- but none of this stuff comes cheap ... not by a long shot. The famous Prop Store -- which houses a treasure trove of on-set Hollywood memorabilia collectibles -- is hosting a MONSTER auction in late August that's going to put some iconic items up for bidding for the first time ever. And, get this ... 850 items are being sold in all, but they're expected to fetch upwards of $6 million, based on how the pros have priced each piece individually beforehand. Okay, let's get to the loot -- Tom Cruise's actual fighter pilot helmet in "Top Gun" (RIP, Goose), the 11-foot model Nostromo space ship used in "Alien" and Robin Williams' Peter Pan sword in "Hook." Tom's helmet is expected to go between $50k-$70k, Nostromo will probably be in the ballpark of $300k-$500k (DAMN!!!) and Peter Banning's weapon could snag $12k-$16k. But wait ... there's more!!! Leo DiCaprio's yellow Cadillac Coupe De Ville and Brad Pitt's Karmann Ghia sports car from "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" are up for grabs too. Those puppies are expected to haul in somewhere between $20,000 and $55,000 -- Leo's ride being on the higher end, naturally. It's a Caddy! Some other neat items include Jennifer Lawrence's arena costume from "The Hunger Games," Sylvester Stallone's boxing gloves from "Rocky" and the camera Alfred Hitchcock used to film "Vertigo." Don't worry 'Star Wars' super fans, they got you -- Darth Vader's promotional costume and helmet from 'A New Hope' is going on the block too. It's all hitting the digital shelves on August 27 and 28 -- and it'll all be live streamed so folks can safely watch (and bid) from home. Start saving your pennies now, folks. (TMZ)

Kill Bill's Vivica A. Fox Wants Zendaya to Play Her Daughter in Third Film: 'I Love Her'. Vivica A. Fox would love nothing more than to see Zendaya play her daughter in a potential Kill Bill: Volume 3. Vivica A. Fox has some casting ideas for a potential Kill Bill: Volume 3 -- and they involve Zendaya! The actress spoke to NME about a sequel in the Quentin Tarantino franchise, telling the magazine, "I haven't got any official word. I had a feeling that hopefully [Tarantino] was waiting on [the actress who plays] my daughter to grow up a little bit." Fox, 55, played Vernita Green, an assassin who tries to kill Uma Thurman's The Bride, only to lose her life instead, leaving behind a young daughter. The star told the publication she hopes Tarantino might consider Zendaya, 23, for the role of Vernita's adult daughter. "I was doing an interview and they asked, 'What young actress would you get to play your daughter?' And I was like, 'No, Ambrosia [Kelley]!' But they meant an established actress," Fox said, referring to the young actress who played her daughter in Kill Bill: Volume 1. She continued, "So I went, Zendaya! How hot would that be? And that would probably green light this project. Because her and Uma are both very tall, and it would just be kick-butt and I love her." "Hopefully now we can put that out, like, 'Tarantino, cast Zendaya!' And spark his interest to put it on the fast track," Fox added. "Wouldn't it be amazing?" The Kill Bill franchise centered on The Bride (Thurman) as she sets out for revenge against Bill (David Carradine), who ordered her execution on their wedding day and kidnapped their daughter. On a mission to find her child, The Bride confronts several of Bill's assassins, which include Vernita, Elle Driver (Daryl Hannah) and O-Ren Ishii (Lucy Liu). In December 2019, Tarantino spoke about a potential third installment for Kill Bill, telling Andy Cohen on his SiriusXM show there was a story in the works. "I just so happened to have had dinner with Uma Thurman last night," Tarantino said. "She was bragging about me and I was bragging about her and it was a lovely night." And when Cohen asked about a potential Volume 3, Tarantino admitted that he had finally come up with a good idea for it. "I do have an idea of what I would do with it," he said. "That was the whole thing, was conquering that concept, exactly what's happened to the Bride since then and what I would want to do. I wouldn't want to come up with a cockamamie adventure. She doesn't deserve that. The Bride has fought long and hard." "But now I have an idea that would be interesting," he added. "I wouldn't do it for a little bit. It would be like at least three years from now, or something like that. But it is definitely in the cards." (People)
