A small group of Christians showed support to a local mosque in Chattanooga, Tennessee, as an act of love to the Islamic community. The mosque was holding prayers during the funeral procession for David Wyatt, one of four Marines killed by a Muslim man in the recent shooting in Chattanooga.

No joke, divers off the coast of Florida discovered about 60 gold artifacts from a 1715 shipwreck. They're valued at more than $1 million. A salvage operation called Queens Jewels, LLC, found the real-life treasure—51 gold coins and 40 feet of ornate gold chain—in about 15-feet-deep water.

We might make a movie and then do our own thing for three years and then come back and do another movie. I’m thinking we could do that every three years–take a year, go bang out a movie. That’s the plan right now.
