After BET’s epic New Edition movie music fans have been debating what group should be next to have their own TV film.  On Twitter, Facebook and Instagram numerous names have been thrown out, but an overwhelming number of folks seemed to want to see a Destiny’s Child biopic.

HipHollywood caught up with LeToya Luckett, who was an original member of the group, and got her two cents. “I’m not going to be the one to put it out,” Luckett joked after a pregnant pause. “But, that would be a really interesting story to tell. Definitely would be entertaining.”

We’d have to agree.

The Houston bred group, comprised of Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, Luckett and LaTavia Roberson had numerous shake-ups and internal conflicts. In 1999 after dropping their sophomore album The Writings On The Wall, Luckett and Roberson left the group.  They were immediately replaced by Farah Franklin and Michelle Williams who made their debut in the “Say My Name” video. A few short months later, Franklin was terminated  and they became a trio. 

Since Luckett says they have reconciled and put the past behind them.  “We are all still cool, we got together when we were 12, I’m 35 now, come on.”

What ‘Geostorm’s’ Gerard Butler & Abbie Cornish Wish They Could Control Via Satellite



One of the many taglines for the new drama, Geostorm, is simply: “Some things weren’t meant to be controlled.”

The film follows a team comprised of world leaders that have one goal in mind: to save the world from natural disasters with the creation of Dutch Boy, a series of satellite grids that control weather and natural disasters around the world.

And while the movie is flooded with action and stellar performances, the film ironically rivals recent natural disasters and crises around the world, and welcomes a bigger conversation. “That’s the genus behind the movie,” the film’s star, Gerard Butler, told HipHollywood. “But nobody knew how acutely it was going to be happening when the movie came out.”

He added, “It’s fun, it’s epic, it’s exciting, but at its core, it’s like, listen, ‘We gotta be careful. We gotta be really careful.”

Co-star Jim Sturgess added. “There is this sort of backbone, a message about climate change, and you kind of hope that audience members leave with that somewhere in the consciousness.”

With the idea, however, that a large unit could control the world’s natural weather patterns, imagine if the same could apply for people’s personal lives.

So when HipHollywood sat down with the cast of the film, we asked: If you could have a grid of satellites over your personal life, what would it control?

For Abbie Cornish, she “wouldn’t mind a satellite that could bring all the local organic seasonal fruits and vegetables to my house ” or “a satellite to drop down fresh flowers.” Jim Sturgess suggested he would love help with “being late for things.”

But it was Butler who suggested “integration.”

He explained, “As opposed to having different satellites and saying, ‘Here’s one for my personal life, here’s one for my relationships, here’s one for my career; I’d rather just have one big satellite, combine them all together, and just shine a whole bunch of positive inspirational light on me as a whole.”

Geostorm hits theaters on Friday, October 20.
