Happy Pop Culture Fix day, pals!
+ Mackenzie Davis has joined Clea Duvall’s Christmas rom-com, Happiest Season, as Kristen Stewart’s love interest. What if they both keep their butch action movie hair! What if I never stop making bananas feature images for this movie! Update: This article is from January 2019, ONE ENTIRE YEAR AGO, hahaha. Lord have mercy. Hey, but thanks to Kristana, here’s an update from this actual year.
It's real. It's happening. The filming of Mackenzie & Kristen holiday rom-com is underway. pic.twitter.com/7xOuiQUZbA

This “reimagining” of the classic series stars Queen Latifah as “an enigmatic figure who uses her extensive skills to help those with nowhere else to turn.” Castle executive producers Andrew Marlowe and Terri Miller will pen the pilot, and original series co-creator Richard Lindheim is also onboard as an EP.
+ Finally! An official still of Rosie Perez as Renee Montoya in Birds of Prey!
+ More sports! Team USA pulled out a victory over UConn on Monday night (don’t laugh, they lost to Oregon) and of course there was plenty of Sue Bird/Diana Taurasi chatter around the big event.
Before you go! It takes funding to keep this publication by and for queer women and trans people of all genders running every day. We will never put our site behind a paywall because we know how important it is to keep Autostraddle free. But that means we rely on the support of our A+ Members. Still, 99.9% of our readers are not members. A+ membership starts at just $4/month. If you’re able to, will you join A+ and keep Autostraddle here and working for everyone?
