Cassidy Releasing Faith-based Record


Cassidy

Rapper Cassidy has joined up with a church in Pennsylvania to release a "faith-based" charity record detailing his relationship with God.

The Hotel hitmaker, real name Barry Reese, is collaborating with Pastor Jomo K. Johnson of Philly Open Air Church in Philadelphia to release the Ep, with all proceeds going to two local charities.

In an interview with the Christian Post, Cassidy explains his eight-month stint in prison stemming from murder charges, and a subsequent near-fatal car accident shortly after his 2006 release, brought him closer to his Christian faith.

Cassidy Released From Jail


Cassidy

Rapper Cassidy has been released from jail following his arrest in New Jersey earlier this month (14May11).

The Hotel hitmaker, real name Barry Reese, was put behind bars at the Bergen County Jail after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

He walked free at the weekend (21-22May11) and has now dismissed reports he had landed in trouble after authorities linked him to a murder case - insisting he merely missed a meeting with his probation officer.

Cassidy tells internet radio programme The Come Up Show, "It was something light. I’m still on probation from the situation that I dealt with about six, seven years ago... I’m still on probation. It’s like a real light probation... I’m running around the world. I didn’t even go (to see my probation officer) every month like the regular person, so it slipped my mind. The way my P.O. (probation officer) wrote the warrants out was that I had a warrant, and he put the murder on there because that was the case it was revolved around... But I wasn’t fighting a new (charge)... It was just a warrant because of violation of probation because I didn’t go to see my P.O..."

Alicia Keys Swizz Beatz Cassidy

Alicia Keys' husband Swizz Beatz is facing a lawsuit from a songwriter who alleges the producer failed to credit him on a track he worked on for rapper Cassidy.

Antwann Frost filed suit this week (beg18Oct10) claiming he and Swizz Beatz co-produced a track called My Drink 'n My 2 Step in 2007 for the hip-hop star's third album B.A.R.S. The Barry Adrian Reese Story.

But Frost was not acknowledged with a producing credit for his work and he alleges Swizz Beatz - real name Kasseem Dean - later offered him $5,000 (£3,333) and five per cent ownership of the song.

Frost insists he rejected the offer and is now taking his complaint to court, seeking $1.5 million (£1 million) and equal ownership of the track with Swizz Beatz and Cassidy, according to TMZ.com.

West's Girlfriend Rose Blasts Cassidy Rumours


Amber Rose Kanye West Cassidy

Model Amber Rose has slammed rumours she's been cheating on hip-hop superstar Kanye West with rapper Cassidy, branding the reports "ridiculous".


West began dating Rose earlier this year (09), but rumours surfaced last week (ends22May09) alleging the couple had split after the busty blonde was linked to the Hotel star.


Rose is furious with the claims and has taken to her Twitter.com page to clear up the Cassidy reports - although she stops short of addressing the state of her romance with West.


She writes, "I do NOT know Cassidy personally, I met him for the first and only time at a charity softball game. THAT'S IT! These blogs r (sic) ridiculous!"

Sam Mendes 'Needs Script' To Make Preacher Film

By on 07 November 2008

Sam Mendes American Beauty Cassidy John Wayne

Sam Mendes has explained that his recently-announced adaptation of the controversial comic book series Preacher is at the very earliest stages of development.

It was announced last week that the American Beauty director and Columbia Pictures were to take Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's award-winning saga to the screen.

But speaking to Empire magazine, Mendes moved to quell fan excitement by clarifying just how close the dark, frequently foul-mouthed and inflammatory comic is to hitting the big screen.

"I'd love to make Preacher," he said. "But there's no script."

"This is a typical Variety announcement," Mendes added. "'Mendes to direct Preacher' – I wish! Basically they should have written, 'Mendes in development with Preacher'. What I'm doing is, I've gotta find a script. I've just got to get it written."

Long linked with a film adaptation, Preacher tells of Jesse Custer, a minister from a small Texan town who becomes imbued with the word of God.

First published in 1995, with its final issue hitting the shelves in July 2000, the Vertigo comic saw Custer, his estranged girlfriend Tulip O'Hare and his best friend Cassidy - an Irish vampire - travelling across America to find God and bring him to justice for deserting mankind.

And Mendes said Ennis and Dillon's "incredible twisted vision" was what attracted him to the project.

"There's so much of it you couldn't possibly fit it all into one movie. It's just about what you keep and what you leave out, and how you structure the story.

"But just to have that toy set again, being able to paint on a big canvas and to say 'I am gonna do crazy crane shots and massive action sequences again because I want to,' it's exciting… "

Though he did not confirm whether he plans to base more than one film on Preacher, Mendes hinted that he would be contacting the John Wayne estate over the film; the Western legend's ghost appears frequently to guide Custer through crises of conscience.

Sam Mendes To Take Legendary Comic Preacher To Screen

By on 30 October 2008

Sam Mendes American Beauty Cassidy HBO James Marsden

Sam Mendes has been named as the man to take Preacher, one of the most acclaimed comic book series ever, to the big screen.

The 75-issue series, created by writer Garth Ennis and artist Steve Dillon, tells of Jesse Custer, a preacher from a small Texan town who becomes imbued with the word of God.

First published in 1995, with its final issue hitting the shelves in July 2000, the Vertigo comic saw Custer, his estranged girlfriend Tulip O'Hare and his best friend Cassidy - an Irish vampire - travelling across America to find God and bring him to justice for deserting mankind.

And now Columbia Pictures and Mendes are developing a big screen version of the award-winning comic, according to Variety.

The beloved graphic novel series has long been linked with a film adaptation, with James Marsden at one time reportedly attached to play Jesse for Tank Girl director Rachel Talalay.

Rumours began in May 2006 that Daredevil helmer Mark Steven Johnson was planning a television series based on Preacher for the HBO network, with one-hour episodes for each issue, though it emerged in August that HBO had turned down the adaptation on the basis of its violent and controversial content.

I Am Legend producer Neal Moritz is to produce alongside Wanted's Jason Netter, though there is as of yet no confirmation of any casting choices.

Mendes is likely to soon comment on the extent to which he plans to remain faithful to the comic, with industry experts predicting vocal protests against Preacher's dark, frequently foul-mouthed and inflammatory content.

Fans will also be curious as to whether the American Beauty director plans to base more than one film on Ennis' comic.
