Rumor Roundup: Justin Timberlake as Daddy Warbucks? Amazon Radio?

By , dealnews Media Editor

When the internet runs out of news, it starts making things up. We think this is funny, so we round up all the lies and speculation and put them here. We call it the "Rumor Roundup" and we do it all for you! This week:

  • Justin Timberlake Will Play Daddy Warbucks in Annie Remake?
    Get ready for a gross, inappropriate misuse of the phrase "Who's your daddy?!" on the movie posters. UGH! That's his adopted daughter! [Screen Rant]

  • New LEGO Game for Wii U Requires an External Hard Drive?
    Just like the brick kits, so many pieces are required! It's part of the experience. [Joystiq]

  • ABC Working on a Live-Streaming App for iOS?
    It'll let you watch live ABC shows in real time on a 4" screen. Those are three things that I've never had to do since getting cable. Guess this is for the hardcore "Red Widow" fans? [PowerPage]

  • Motorola's X Smartphone Will be Hardware-Customizable?
    "'Can I customize it into an iPhone!' — Commenter who thinks he's being clever." — Me, who thinks he's being clever. [Phandroid]

  • Battlefield 4 Will Feature 64-Person Battles?
    Just like real war, 64 people can fight at once! [Game N Guide]

  • Amazon to Announce a Subscription Music Service?
    We are running out of companies to attribute this rumor to. Two weeks ago it was Apple, last week it was Google. Next week?! [The Verge]
