by | September 29, 2006 | Comments

In this week’s Ketchup, Keith Richards is living up to everyone’s expectations on the set of the third "Pirates" installment, Emma Watson is experiencing growing pains with "Harry Potter," and the Nolan brothers talk about "The Dark Knight."

This week’s Most Popular News:

Emma Watson’s Getting a Little Tired of Playing With "Harry Potter"

In a move that could be best described as "contract negotiation hardball," young actress Emma Watson just dropped a bomb on the producers of the "Harry Potter" series. Seems the actress is not yet signed for the final pair of Potter flicks, and she’s hinting that she might not even want the gig anymore.

The Nolan Brothers Discuss "The Dark Knight"

Stallone to Star in "Predator 3"?

It’s a piece of casting gossip that’s almost certainly untrue, but it’s a fun one anyway, so let’s get to it: Someone thinks that Sylvester Stallone could be lined up to star in the second sequel to "Predator."


You never know.
