New evidence develops on 'Pretty Little Liars'

This week, “Pretty Little Liars” explored a very real and serious issue affecting teenagers today: Sexually explicit dreams.

Aria, whose relationship with Fitz is most likely on the outs, can’t stop fantasizing about Jason. It’s like this girl is addicted to drama - dating her English teacher and lusting after her late friend’s sketch-ball brother.

Why can’t Aria just find herself a nice crooked cop to date like Jenna did? (But I digress.)

'The Smurfs' lands a sequel

A storyline in Hollywood is rarely over until the money stops coming in, even when that story features the 3-D renderings of '80s cartoon faves, "The Smurfs."

According to Deadline, Sony is planning a sequel to their summer "Smurfs" release and is lining it up to open on August 2, 2013.

If you're scratching your head with wonder, it sounds like execs didn't have to think twice about the move: "The Smurfs" has taken in $135 million globally thus far, and held its own against "Cowboys & Aliens" when it opened in late July.

We do know at least one mom who liked "The Smurfs," judging from her weekend review - would you be interested in seeing a sequel?

Could Matt Damon run for president?

Matt Damon is clearly one actor who's not afraid of a good political debate, but could he run for president?

Filmmaker Michael Moore doesn't really see why he couldn't. While participating in a virtual town hall hosted by Firedoglake over the weekend, Moore proposed the Oscar winner as an option for a third party candidate.

Now, Moore hasn't spoken to Damon about his idea, but he does "think that [Matt Damon] has been very courageous in not caring about who he offends by saying the things that need to be said here," Moore said.

'Gilmore Girls' creator working on 'Nanny Diaries' series

ABC seems to be turning to bookshelves for TV show inspiration.

According to TV Guide, "Gilmore Girls" creator Amy Sherman Palladino is said to be working on a new drama for the network based on the New York Times best-selling book "The Nanny Diaries." ABC is reportedly close to ordering the script.

"Nanny Diaries" was also made into a 2007 movie starring Scarlett Johansson and "Captain America" Chris Evans, but TV Guide notes that this show will likely stick closer to the 2002 book, written by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus. The series would follow a group of nannies who work for Manhattan's upper class families.

That's not the only literary script ABC has its eyes on. According to Variety, the network has ordered a script that could turn the 2011 film "The Lincoln Lawyer," starring Matthew McConaughey, into a TV series.
