Just a week after Shields was criticised for photographing Clint Eastwood's daughter setting fire to an expensive Birkin bag, he's testing the art world again to drum up support for his latest novel, entitled Richest Man.
His newly-released shots feature images of Roberts throwing around, caressing and ultimately eating $100,000, while Eastwood sets fire to a $100 bill - the picture that graces the cover of the book.
The 1996 slasher film, starring Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, became a big hit upon its release and it has since spawned three sequels.
But the thriller will soon be scaring up a whole new audience as bosses at MTV are in the process of developing a TV version of the popular franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A writer has yet to be appointed to the project and it is not yet known if Craven and original screenwriter Kevin Williamson will be involved.
Scream 4, the latest movie in the series, hit theatres last year (11) with new castmembers Emma Roberts and Hayden Panettiere.
Talk about a triple threat. It was announced on Monday that Paul Rudd, Michael Shannon, and Edward Asner will be appearing together on Broadway this fall for a limited engagement run of Craig Wright's thrilling drama Grace. Beginning in previews on September 14, the versatile trio will all three be making their returns to the stage for the play's Broadway debut. In fact, this will mark Asner's first Broadway appearance in nearly 25 years. (The legendary Mary Tyler Moore Show star last appeared on the Great White Way in 1989 in Born Yesterday.)
The play — which first premiered to acclaim in Washington, D.C. in 2004 and went on to win three L.A. Drama Critics Circle Awards, including Best Play — follows an eager, wide-eyed couple (Rudd and actress Kate Arrington, Shannon's real-life girlfriend) that move to Florida to open a chain of Gospel motels, but not before encountering an irritated neighbor (Shannon) and an abrasive exterminator (Asner.) The four collide in what's being describe as "an entertaining and suspenseful journey." Of course, we'd just hail it as "Paul Rudd, Michael Shannon, and Ed Asner are all appearing in a show together?! We'd like our tickets right this instant, please."
Fans of the stage couldn't ask for a more uniquely talented group of actors, really. While Rudd may be best known for his trademark sensitivity and cutting wit on screen, in comedies like Anchorman, Role Models, and I Love You, Man, the charming star is no stranger to the stage. In fact, Rudd, who recently took part in Jason Reitman's live group read of The Apartment in New York City, has appeared in numerous stage productions, including starring opposite Julia Roberts and Bradley Cooper in 2006's Three Days of Rain on Broadway.
The intense, Oscar-nominated Shannon has a rich theater background and has already worked on a Wright show prior to Grace, when he starred in the off-Broadway production of Mistakes Were Made. But it's the Emmy-winning Asner, whose decade-spanning career has been marked by memorable work on television, film, and stage, may be the biggest draw for Broadway buffs. After all, who doesn't want to see a living legend? Sorry, living legends.
Grace is slated for an October 4 opening night.

The lensman, who is dating his model muse Francesca Eastwood, asked actress Roberts to join the couple for an edgy photo session and she agreed.
Dressed in matching black mini-dresses and wearing bright-red lipstick, the sultry stars pose with a vintage telephone on the streets of Los Angeles for the Shields shots.

Whether you were watching from the comfort of your home with envy/relief that you weren't there or dancing amongst the thousands of sweaty and unbearably trendy music fans (including spotted celebrity attendees like Josh Hutcherson, Katy Perry, Fergie, Emma Roberts, Aaron Paul, Joe Manganiello, Joshua Jackson, Vanessa Hudgens, Colin Hanks, Paris Hilton, and David Hasselhoff) that made the pilgrimage to Indio, California, the first weekend of the 2012 Coachella was one that had to be seen to be believed. With a powerhouse line-up that included the likes of Radiohead, Pulp, Gotye, Florence + the Machine, The Black Keys, Santigold, Feist, and Dr. Dre & Snoop Dogg, whose cameo-filled set (including, yes, the late Tupac Shakur) has everyone talking, here's the best and the worst of what Coachella has had to offer so far.
Blame it on Friday the 13th that Coachella's first day (April 13) got off to a soggy start when the festival grounds were hit with rainstorms, but that still didn't dampen the spirits of eager concertgoers. Friday's eclectic line-up ushered in buzzed-about sets from Neon Indian, M83, The Arctic Monkeys, and the aforementioned Pulp, who have reunited to play their first shows in the United States since 1998. (Before heading westward to Coachella, the Brit rockers played two sold-out shows in New York City last week.)Watch Pulp's Coachella performance of their crowd-pleaser "Common People" below:
The high energy from Friday's sets spilled over into Saturday, whose headliners Radiohead wowed festival-goers for nearly two hours with a set list that included "Karma Police," "Bloom," and "Paranoid Android" (their entire concert is available to watch on YouTube in case you missed it) capped off a day that included solid turnouts from Bon Iver, David Guetta, Kasabian, and Community star Donald Glover (better known to the rap community as Childish Gambino) who performed with a broken foot during his set. Watch his NSFW "You Know Me" performance with special guests Kendrick Lamar and Danny Brown:
But there was no hip hop performance more talked-about (or any other set, for that matter) than when rap legends Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg late Sunday night. While earlier standouts had included a fresh-off-their-SNL debut Gotye and a surprise performance from Rihanna during her "We Found Love" collaborator Calvin Harris' set, the introduction of hologram Tupac (move over, Will.i.am) closed out the first weekend of Coachella in a most unbelievable fashion.
Towards the latter end of their 23-song set, which featured appearances from the likes of Eminem, 50 Cent, and Wiz Khalifa, Coachella's most unexpected guest, a hologram of the late Tupac Shakur took to the stage to perform "Hail Mary" and "2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted" alongside the rap superstars. A voice used for the video game-like image of the Shakur, who died in 1996, addressed the crowd, "What the f**k is up Coachella?" before beginning the song. Innovative? Tasteless? More fodder for conspiracy theorists? Watch the the resurrection of Tupac as a hologram from Sunday night's Coachella below and decide for yourself:
It's hard to imagine how, or what, will top hologram Tupac Shakur when the music acts from this past weekend are scheduled return on Friday for the festival's second weekend. But at this point, when it comes to Coachella it's probably best to expect the unexpected. Were you at Coachella this weekend or did you watch from home? Will you be heading to this weekend's concerts? Which performance(s) blew you away and which ones were you underwhelmed by? Did hologram Tupac trip you out? Seriously though, what just happened?

Emma Roberts and Chord Overstreet Show Off Love at Coachella
Charlie Sheen Releases Single with Snoop Dogg
Man Admits to Shooting Tupac Shakur
The young couple began dating last spring (11) but parted ways after just nine months together.
Reports emerged earlier this month (Apr12) that Roberts had reunited with Overstreet - and they were open with their affection for each other as they enjoyed the music festival together.
The stars were caught on camera cuddling each other and at one point the actor picked up Roberts and carried her around the Indio site.
The young couple, which began dating last spring (11), parted ways after just nine months together, but Roberts has since reunited with Overstreet and they are giving their relationship another go.
A source tells Eonline.com, "They are back together. Ultimately they enjoy spending time together and they wanted to give it another shot. They make each other laugh and they are both very supportive of one another's successes."
The actors were photographed together in Venice, California over the weekend (07-08Apr12) and they attended an Easter church service in Beverly Hills on Sunday (08Apr12).
With the Hunger Games promotional blitz currently in full swing – which makes sense, since it’s now in theaters! – and cast members’ faces and voices pretty much everywhere, it’s weird, borderline uncomfortable, to think of any actress not named Jennifer Lawrence playing the lead character, Katniss Everdeen. But the truth is, it could’ve happened pretty easily: Not only did Lawrence recently admit that she didn’t see herself playing Katniss, but around this time last year, lest we forget, Lawrence was merely one of 10 young up-and-comers in the running for the coveted role, and Lionsgate confirmed that there was no clear frontrunner. Let’s take a look at the other nine girls.
In March of last year, Steinfeld – coming off her breakout (and Oscar-nominated) performance in True Grit – was almost as red-hot as Lawrence. She’s fared OK herself, though, having landed roles in a new take on Romeo and Juliet and the highly anticipated adaptation of Ender’s Game, et al.
The onetime Little Miss Sunshine of Little Miss Sunshine is all grown up (er, almost 16) and ready for mature roles – just, evidently, not quite right for Katniss. Like Steinfeld, she’ll star in the buzzy Ender’s Game (and much more) as a consolation prize.
The precocious Moretz has proven that she can act (and curse, as seen in Kick-Ass!) well beyond her years, but she couldn’t quite nail down the lead role in Hunger Games. Which is OK: She’ll appear in no less than six major films over the next two years, including this summer’s Dark Shadows.
Like the aforementioned Moretz, Fonseca broke out in Kick-Ass (you also may know her as “The Daughter” from How I Met Your Mother!). Unlike Moretz, though, she doesn’t quite have a booming career to fall back on. At least not yet.
Also known as Julia Roberts’ niece, Emma Roberts might’ve actually been too famous (and thus too expensive?) at the time of casting for Hunger Games producers, who were ostensibly looking for actresses with slightly fresher faces to frontline a brand-new franchise. Nonetheless, Roberts was very much in the running.
Casting the Irish Ronan to play the American heroine Katniss might not have been well received by hardcore fans of the Suzanne Collins book trilogy – and it’s not out of the realm of possibility that that factored into the decision-making process for Lionsgate.
The same can be said for Scodelario, who is British, that was said for Ronan. But Ronan was at least Oscar-nominated for 2007’s Atonement and has starred in a few big movies since; not the case with Scodelario, to whom American audiences have had almost no exposure, and vice versa. However, those fans familiar with Scodelario seemed more in favor of her – around the Web – in March 2011 than any other actress on the list.
Ditto the Australian Browning! Plus, even though the failure of 2011’s Sucker Punch was certainly not Browning’s fault, it might’ve left a bad taste in producers’ mouths – or they might’ve been worried that it left a bad taste in moviegoers’ mouths.
Woodley might, in hindsight, have been the perfect choice, the one that got away. Producers could’ve locked her in long-term for considerably less than what she is presumably commanding today, following her Oscar-nominated, range-displaying performance in the celebrated dramedy The Descendants. The movie world is now Woodley’s oyster, and it obviously won’t ever include The Hunger Games.
