There have been further developments in the potential UFC fight between Justin Bieber and Tom Cruise.
TMZ reports that discussions have taken place about the 25-year-old pop star taking on the 56-year-old actor in the octagon. Ari Emanuel, the co-CEO of the William Morris Endeavor agency that owns UFC, reportedly called Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun and then spoke with UFC president Dana White about the logistics of this hypothetical matchup. During the conversation, Emanuel said he would love to make this fight happen while White added on that he was “100%” down with a fight between Tom Cruise and Justin Bieber. To add onto the madness, Emanuel mentioned that he strongly believes Tom Cruise would agree to the fight.
Dana White also told TMZ Sports earlier this week that he would fully support promoting the fight between Tom Cruise and Justin Bieber.
“I told them that if that’s true — and everybody involved really wants to do it — we can talk. That would be the easiest fight to promote in the history of my career.”
Only time will tell if this is just blatant publicity or something that will actually materialize into a real fight between Tom Cruise and Justin Bieber.

Val Kilmer is set to reprise his role as Tom “Iceman” Kazansky while Jennifer Connelly plays a woman who runs a local Navy bar.

Here is the official synopsis for The Lion King:

The battle for Pride Rock is ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. With help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba will have to figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.
Directed by Jon Favreau from a script written by Jeff Nathanson, The Lion Kingstars Donald Glover as Simba, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter as Nala, James Earl Jones as Mufasa, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Scar, Seth Rogen as Pumbaa and Billy Eichner as Timon.
