NBC Is Making a Blue Crush TV Show

Surf’s up.

Blue Crush is set to come barreling back…as a TV show. NBC is set to reboot the beloved 2002 surf movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. What’s the opposite of a cruel summer? Oh, a happy fall. (OK, we admit, that one was lame.) 

Currently in development and in the early stages, the TV version of Blue Crush will be executive produced and written by Hannah Schneider (The CW’s Reign), with Brian Grazer, Francie Calfo and Jillian Kugler also serving as EPs. 

The film version starred Kate Bosworth, Michelle Rodriguez and Sanoe Lake as three surfers living in Hawaii, with Bosworth’s character attempting to make her mark in the surfing world after a near-death accident in the water.

The Vampire DiariesMatt Davis also starred in the movie that became a surprise hit in the summer of 2002, grossing over $50 million dollars. A straight-to-DVD sequel (though it was unrelated to the original) also came out in 2011. 

NBC’s reboot will also be a story of female empowerment and ambition, set on Hawaii’s North Shore. After a tragic accident, a surfer will work to revive her career and help save her local community, which is being threatened by commercialism and shady surf politics. 

(E! and NBC are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)

Minka Kelly Slams Allegations She Ended Jesse Williams' Marriage: ''F–k Off''

If you ask Minka Kelly, she had nothing to do with Jesse Williams‘ divorce. 

The actress quietly began dating the Grey’s Anatomy star over the summer, months after it was revealed that his 5-year marriage to Aryn Drake-Lee had dissolved. Rumors quickly began circulating that Jesse cheated on the mother of his two children with Minka, until today when she shut them down once and for all. 

An Instagram follower wrote on the Friday Night Light alum’s social media, “I hope the cheating rumors aren’t true. It would be disappointing.”

Kelly fired back, “They’re not. Hate for you to be disappointed. Glad I could clear that up for you. Now f–k off.”

A source described Minka and Jesse as “dating exclusively” in July, noting, “Jesse is really private with everything, especially his relationships, but feels open with Minka and she has been supportive and that’s what he needs now.”

Our insider continued, “They were extra careful after all the media attention they got to be out together but now feel more comfortable to go out in public.”

Just weeks ago, Williams and his estranged wife reached a temporary settlement agreement over their custody case. The actor was ordered to pay Drake-Lee an advance of $160,000, a majority of which will serve as spousal and child support. The remaining $60,000 will finance her attorney fees. 

Jesse has never publicly discussed his budding romance with Minka, but did touch on his marital struggles and cheating rumors in a cameo for Jay-Z‘s Footnotes for 4:44

“I was in a relationship 13 years,” he shared, “13 real years, not 5 years, not 7 years, 13 years and all of a sudden mother f–kers are writing think-pieces that I somehow threw a 13-year relationship—like the most painful experience I’ve had in my life like with a person I’ve loved with all of my heart—that I threw a person and my family in the trash because a girl I work with is cute.”

Williams has not commented on Kelly’s response to her fan.
