A third 'Band of Brothers' is in the works

According to The Hollywood Reporter, after the infantry that was parachuted into Europe and marines in the Guadalcanal jungle, the next installment of "Band of Brothers," the mini-series produced by Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, will focus on the air force. 

The third installment will return to the European front after a stint in Asia in "The Pacific." The next episodes will focus on the Eighth Air Force, a strategic air force in the American army that was responsible for bombing countries that were occupied by and allied with Germany.

"Band of Brothers" has found its material historical source, which means that it will soon enter the development phase. This third chapter will be based on Donald L. Miller's writings "Masters of the Air: America's Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air Against Nazi Germany."

The cast of "Band of Brothers," which was broadcast on HBO in 2011, included Damian Lewis ("Homeland"), Donnie Wahlberg ("Blue Bloods"), Michael Fassbender ("Prometheus"), Colin Hanks ("Mad Men"), Simon Pegg ("Mission Impossible"), David Schwimmer ("Friends") and Tom Hardy ("The Dark Knight Rises").

The mini-series was awarded five Emmy Awards and a Golden Globe. This was topped on August 29, 2010 by a second, Asian-set mini-series, "The Pacific," which scooped eight Emmys, including Best Mini-Series.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
