R. Kelly’s Child Pornography Trial Set To Begin August 2022 In Chicago

R. Kelly’s Music Sales Skyrocket 500% After Guilty Sex Crimes Verdict

It looks like the legal battles for R. Kelly aren’t quite over just yet. Although he was found guilty of racketeering charges in New York on September 27th and his sentencing awaits, he is heading back to court next year. If you recall, “The Piped Piper” faces charges in his hometown of Chicago for child pornography and obstruction of justice charges.

According to The Chicago Tribune, Judge Harry Leinenweber has set a trial date of August 1, 2022. Kelly won’t be in the courthouse alone. His longtime associates and co-defendants, Derrel McDavid and Milton “June” Brown will also be there. Reports state that if the Chicago federal case does make it to trial, it will likely focus on the graphic videotapes Kelly allegedly made that depicted him having sex with at least three female minors, according to court records.

Back in July 2019, a 13-count indictment filed alleged that Kelly, alone and through his associates, paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, gifts, and legal settlements to attempt to purchase copies of the sex tapes ahead of investigators. While Kelly is fighting for his life and maintains his innocence, he is having an interesting experience behind bars. His attorney Steve Greenberg said the U.S. Bureau of Prisons had previously placed Kelly on suicide watch for some time. However, the watch has been lifted.

Inmates being placed on suicide watch isn’t uncommon. Reports state that recently convicted prisoners being placed on increased monitoring is typical in the federal prison system. Attorney Greenberg did clarify that Kelly hadn’t expressed the desire to harm himself. Kelly’s 2022 trial will be held at the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse and is expected to last three or four weeks. He is currently facing a minimum sentence of 10 years in prison and a maximum of 20 years behind bars.

Nicolas Cage Set To Star In ‘Dracula’ Spinoff ‘Renfield’ For Universal

Nicolas Cage Set To Star In ‘Dracula’ Spinoff ‘Renfield’ For Universal

Nicolas Cage is set to star as Dracula in Universal’s “Renfield,” a monster movie centered around Dracula’s sidekick and based on an original story outline from Robert Kirkman, according to an individual with knowledge of the project.

In Bram Stoker’s 1897 novel “Dracula,” Renfield was a patient in an insane asylum who ate vermin to absorb their life force — and whom Count Dracula used to enter the asylum and attack Jonathan Harker’s school mistress fiancée Mina.

The film will be produced by Skybound Entertainment’s film team, including Kirkman, David Alpert, Bryan Furst and Sean Furst. McKay’s producing partner Samantha Nisenboim will be joining the project as executive producer.

Universal remains committed to creating compelling, filmmaker-driven projects based on characters from the studio’s vast monsters legacy. Instead of prescribing a mandated updating of these monster stories and making them all part of a larger scheme, the studio loosened these restrictions and open-sourced to filmmakers who were inspired to create their own unique stories; similar to what was done with the “Invisible Man” film inspired by Universal’s classic Monster character.

Cage is experiencing a career resurgence as of late coming off strong reviews for his performance in “Pig.” Next up, he will play a meta version of himself in Lionsgate’s “The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent.”

Cage is represented by WME, Stride Management, and attorney Patrick Knapp at GGSSC; Hoult is represented by UTA, 42 and Felker Toczek Suddleson Abramson LLP; McKay is represented by UTA, Rise Management and Morris Yorn Barnes Levine Krintzman Rubenstein Kohner Endlich & Gellman.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.
