Trailer Park: 'The Giver,' plus 'Spider-Man'

Before there were "Hunger Games" or factions where being "Divergent" is dangerous, there was Lois Lowry's "The Giver."

The award-winning children's novel has been a must-read for bookworms of all ages since it was published in 1993, and now The Weinstein Company has recruited a pair of Oscar winners to help bring Lowry's story to life.

Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin head to Netflix, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • As if we're not logging enough hours on our coach glued to our screens, Netflix has just tempted us with another binge-watching opportunity. Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, who first stole our hearts with their combined wit in "Nine to Five," are going to star in a comedy from Howard J. Morris and "Friends" creator Marta Kaufmann called "Grace and Frankie." The "very different kind of sitcom" is about two older women whose long-held rivalry is put on the back burner after their husbands announce that they're in love with one another and plan on getting married, leaving their wives behind. The 13-episode series is set to premiere next year.
  • Meanwhile, Billy Crystal and Josh Gad are starring in a new FX comedy about the lives of an established comedian and an upstart in the creatively titled "The Comedians." [LAT]
  • One of Pamela Anderson's biggest fears about cutting her trademark long hair was how it would affect her sex life - and not in the way you'd think. "I thought it would be weird having sex with short hair," the former "Baywatch" star says, "but then I kind of got into the mode." And now we know something about Anderson that we did not know before. [Elle]
  • If you want to see Eminem and Rihanna in concert, you've only got three nights to choose from. The duo, who've paired up on "Love the Way You Lie" and their recent hit "Monster," will take the stage for "The Monster" tour in August in Los Angeles, New York and Detroit. [Eminem.com]
  • Anna Kendrick is going to host "Saturday Night Live" for the first time on April 5 (with musical guest Pharrell), and she's going to be amazing. We're calling it now. [THR]
  • In honor of hump day, here's the second half of the purported Lindsay Lohan lust list, now with more famous names. [The Blemish]
  • "Game of Thrones" season four: Let the countdown begin.

But on Tuesday, Disney and Lucasfilm not only confirmed that the film will start shooting this spring - May, to be exact - but it will also take place about 30 years after "Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi."
