Here's what's being talked about in pop culture:

• Hope you weren't counting on a “Jack Reacher” sequel. Paramount is reportedly weighing its options, but that the Tom Cruise thriller isn't making quite enough money to warrant a second installment. [The Hollywood Reporter]

• Mel Brooks is pushing his idea of adapting his Western comedy “Blazing Saddles” into a Broadway musical — as he did with “The Producers” and “Young Frankenstein.” [Vulture]

• Have you seen the fan-made live-action version of “Toy Story”? It's pretty geektastic. [Entertainment Weekly]
