While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Alicia Keys' "Girl On Fire" doesn't have a "Hunger Games" association, but it does have the honor of being a debut No. 1. The record, Keys' fifth, is at the top of the Billboard 200 in its first week of release. [MTV]
  • Anne Hathaway is totally down for a "Dark Knight Rises" spin-off featuring Selina Kyle - if only to stop the pain of no longer getting to slip into that catsuit, it seems. "No one's talked to me about it," the actress said, before admitting that she cries when she thinks about how much she misses playing the character. [Access Hollywood]
  • Not quite sure why the news of Netflix picking up rights to Disney movies was such a game-changer? Here are a few explanations that'll hopefully help. [CNET]
  • We're going to go ahead and call 2013 the year of Beyonce (and yes, we know Stevie Nicks has also claimed it the year of Fleetwood Mac). The singer, on top of her HBO documentary and Super Bowl performance, is expected to drop new music early next year as well. [Billboard]
  • Hopefully you've gotten your fill of Sexiest Man Alive Channing Tatum, because after a busy 2012 the star plans to take an acting break in 2013. [EW]
  • John Krasinski is "totally in love" with Matt Damon? That's a bro-mance we can get behind. (You know we already love Damon's sense of humor.) [People]
  • A now single Leonardo DiCaprio raised eyebrows after he was seen enjoying New York City's nightlife with model Miranda Kerr, but DiCaprio is pals with Kerr's husband, Orlando Bloom. [NYDN]

Brittany Murphy's final film completes production

Brittany Murphy wrapped production on her final film before her death in December 2009, and it might soon be available for viewing.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Murphy finished an independent thriller called "Something Wicked" before she died unexpectedly of pneumonia, iron deficiency and multiple drug intoxication at the age of 32.

As a result of her death, the post-production was delayed until this year. Directed by Darin Scott, "Something Wicked" also starred James Patrick Stewart, Julian Morris, John Robinson and Shantel VanSanten. The film told the story about "obsession and a young love gone wrong," the L.A. Times says.

It's unknown when fans would be able to see "Something Wicked," as the now completed project doesn't yet have a distributor.
