Elton John wants Justin Timberlake to play him in biopic

There's a biopic about Elton John in the works, and the musician already knows who he wants to land the lead role: Justin Timberlake.

"No. 1 on my wish list is Justin Timberlake, because he played me before in a David LaChapelle video of 'Rocket Man' and was superb," the Brit legend tells the L.A. Times.

'Paranormal Activity 4' to arrive this year

Studio Paramount has announced that they're sticking with an old familiar for 2012: "Paranormal Activity."

According to the Hollywood Reporter, a fourth installment of the franchise - which has bowed in theaters every fall since 2009 - is slated for this year, although the studio has yet to schedule a release date.

When "Paranormal Activity 3" debuted in October 2011, it set a record for being the highest grossing open ever for that month. The movie, which took fans back to the early days of the creepy tale, earned $54 million its opening weekend after being produced for just $5 million. (Do we really need to wonder why we're getting a fourth movie?)

Variety reports that Paramount earned $5.17 billion worldwide at the box office in 2011, with $1.96 billion coming from the States.

"Yes, it is [possible for me]," he told Winfrey. "I don't want to hurt anybody again. For all the divorces I've had, I hurt those girls deeply. It was some behavior that I'm ashamed of and I shouldn't've done."
