'Matilda' Movie Based on Stage Musical is Coming to Netflix

Matilda is getting the big-screen treatment once again.

Netflix and Sony Pictures are joining forces for a new film adaptation of Roald Dahl‘s beloved children’s book, based on the stage musical Matilda the Musical, THR reports.

The movie adaptation will receive a full theatrical and home video release exclusively in the U.K. and then stream on Netflix around the world.

Matilda also received the film treatment in 1996, telling the story of “a young bookworm prodigy mistreated by her ignorant parents. At a school run by an abusive headmistress, she finds a kindred spirit in her teacher, Miss Honey.”

The film adaptation of Matilda the Musical will be directed by Matthew Warchus (pictured here).

Ellen Pompeo Slams Media Outlet for Coverage of Kobe Bryant's Crash

Ellen Pompeo Slams Media Outlet for Coverage of Kobe Bryant's Crash

Ellen Pompeo is calling out a media outlet for how it handled coverage of Kobe Bryant‘s fatal helicopter crash.

The 50-year-old Grey’s Anatomy star took to Twitter on Tuesday (January 28) to voice her concerns, specifically with regard to TMZ and its founder, Harvey Levin.

“I wonder why police departments give @HarveyLevinTMZ all this sensitive info?” Ellen wrote. “I wonder why @HarveyLevinTMZ puts out photos of women who have been attacked or assaulted. …Who were victims ? Exploiting women who have been abused… why is this guy still in business at all?”

“So many questions I have …if we are not tolerating abuse anymore… shouldn’t we be calling this out?” she continued. “Exploiting women who have been abused… exploiting the brutal sudden death of peoples loved ones is certainly emotional abuse… I call times up on his behavior.”

She added, “We should be furious about the history of this media outlet regarding women… it’s not news it’s exploitation.”
