Welcome to your daily dose of entertainment news on OTTplay, i'm your host Nikhil. Let's now look at the top stories.

Britney Spears shuts down rumours surrounding her biopic

With the recent developments surrounding Britney Spears and her life, it seems fans are in no shortage of news about the pop sensation. So when talks of a biopic came to the fore fans were naturally excited. But the unpredictable pop star was quick to shut down any potential movie speculation — at least during her lifetime. She took to Instagram to share her grievances with the captions "I hear about people wanting to do movies about my life," and "Dude I'm not dead !!!". So it appears Britney fans won’t get to see a documentary unless she changes her mind.

Black Panther writer Joe Robert Cole is working on Snoop Dogg's biopic

After Elvis and Rocketman became an immense hit, musicians are looking to dip their toes in the film market with biopics of their own. This time it's Snoop Dogg, whose life and rhymes are headed to the big screen. It's been reported that the enigmatic rapper’s biopic is in the works at Universal Pictures and they are bringing Black Panther writer Joe Robert Cole on board the team. Snoop is set to produce the project under his newly formed Death Row Pictures, alongside Hughes and Sara Ramaker. Snoop said "It was the perfect marriage. It was holy matrimony, not holy macaroni." to demonstrate his excitement.

'Chucky' takes the role of Good Guy God in the new preview clip

There’s no bad news when it comes to horror television and the news about the second season of Chucky is proof. The sixth episode is about to premiere and fans are unable to hide in their excitement. Syfy has released a preview clip of the latest episode which reveals the particularly humorous aftermath of Sister Ruth finding out that “Hulk Chucky” is alive. The sneak peek also features Sister worshiping Chucky like he’s a god and acting as his humble servant. Chucky is getting comfortable in his new seat of power as a godlike figure but whatever the end might be it is clear that creator Don Mancini and the crew are having a lot of fun with this plot twist.
