The Simpsons

ShockYa has been covering the legal sagas Alki David has been involved in, and here’s the latest legal battle the billionaire is a part of. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alki David’s HologramUSA filed a lawsuit last week against 20th Century Fox and Gracie Films.

The hologram made its debut July 26 in celebration of The Simpsons’ 25th anniversary and to promote the new Simpsons World app. Even though the hologram stunned Comic-Con attendees, it unfortunately had the unintended effect  [ Read More ]

Benedict Cumberbatch has been cast as a voice in the film. Cumberbatch will play the villainous tiger, Shere Khan, states, The Hollywood Reporter.
