Eagles to sign DL Haloti Ngata | 3 observations, what it means
Ngata was selected to five straight Pro Bowls from 2009-2013 and was a back-to-back All-Pro performer in 2010 and 2011. Philadelphia Eagles general manager Howie Roseman has entered this offseason more determined than ever to win.

The Good Liar marks the fourth collaboration between Condon and McKellen after Gods and Monsters, Mr. Holmes and Beauty and the Beast. (Condon most recently helmed Disney's live-action Beauty and the Beast).

She takes him into her home and as she opens her life to him, he finds himself starting to care for her... but not all is what it seems in this cat-and-mouse game.

Greg Yolen and Condon are producing, and Jack Morrissey and BRON Creative's Aaron L. Gilbert and Jason Cloth are executive producers.
