Third 'Sharnkado' brewing, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Syfy is clearly uber-confident about how "Sharknado 2" will perform this July, as the network has already ordered a third round of inclement, shark-infested weather. [EW]
  • Is that Frank Underwood we hear? Or is Kevin Spacey just messing with us? A new so-called leaked audio clip features Spacey channeling the spirit of his sinister "House of Cards" character to tease a new, unspecified project. But what? [Complex]
  • Future beat out Iggy Azalea on Billboard's album chart, but both rappers were bested by Disney's "Frozen" soundtrack, which is still No. 1 for a 12th week. [Billboard]
  • This is the Backstreet Boys/New Kids on the Block crossover you've been waiting for. Nick Carter and Jordan Knight have joined boy band forces to create the kind of unfortunately titled duo Nick and Knight. [NickandKnight.com]
  • For those frustrated by the lack of women cast in the new "Star Wars: Episode VII," there's hope: casting may not be done yet. [THR]
  • Andrew Garfield is absolutely adorable and we can see why Emma Stone can't help but gush that she loves him very much.

Sandra Bullock's next role ... will involve Tupperware?

We can see why director Tate Taylor is eyeing Sandra Bullock for an upcoming project. If anyone could make the world see a movie about Tupperware, it's Sandy B.

The actress is reportedly in talks to portray Brownie Wise, the sales exec who changed the fate of Tupperware when she began throwing Tupperware parties in the 1950s.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, "The Help" helmer Taylor has already met with Bullock about the project; while she's interested, she's not attached to the role yet.

Taylor is also the writer of the project, adapting it from Bob Kealing's nonfiction book "Tupperware Unsealed."

'Star Wars': Digging for dirt on Daisy Ridley

Tuesday brought the biggest "Star Wars: Episode VII" info dump we've had in a while, and it managed to do so without really telling us anything at all.

For example, we know who's been cast - but not who they'll portray. And while we know a little about the background of some of the movie's newer names, actor Daisy Ridley is so unknown the best pictures of her are her headshots.
