All the celebs arrested, married and sued this week from Plies to Bieber-Baldwin rumors

Here's a guide to some entertainment news you might've missed this week.

ARRESTED: Rapper Plies was arrested at Tampa International Airport on Wednesday after authorities say a gun was found in his carry-on bag. The 42-year-old Wesley Chapel resident faces a charge of carrying a concealed firearm.

LEGAL NEWS: Asia Argento says she's now taking legal action against Rose McGowan. She says she contacted a law firm to go after McGowan, who claimed in a statement last month that Argento had admitted to sleeping with Jimmy Bennett, who has accused Argento of sexually abusing him as a minor.

LEGAL NEWS: A 26-year-old Austin, Texas, man has been arrested on federal charges for allegedly sending threatening letters to Taylor Swift and showing up at her record label in Nashville. Eric Swarbrick is charged with interstate stalking and sending interstate communications with the intent to threaten.

REBOOT: Welcome to another Space Jam. The long-rumored follow-up to the 1996 classic featuring Michael Jordan and Looney Tunes stars is officially in the works, according to an announcement Wednesday by LeBron James' production company. It's a safe bet that he will star and that several other NBA players will make cameos. Terence Nance (HBO's Random Acts of Flyness) is directing, and Ryan Coogler (Black Panther) will be a producer.

REBOOT: Hulu has ordered eight new episodes of Veronica Mars starring Kristen Bell. In 2013, Bell and series creator Rob Thomas launched a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund a Veronica Mars feature film that premiered in 2014 and took place 10 years after the show ended.

LINEUP CHANGE: Julie Chen announced her departure from the daytime show The Talk on Tuesday. Chen had not been on the daily chat show since her husband, Leslie Moonves, was ousted Sept. 9 as chairman of CBS amid allegations of sexual harassment and assault.

MARRIED: Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum Eliza Dushku, 37, earlier this week said that she married former tennis pro and now real estate CEO Peter Palandjian, 54, in Boston last month.

MARRIED? According to People, Justin Bieber, 24, and Hailey Baldwin, 21, secretly tied the knot last week in New York, just two months after getting engaged.

UPDATE: Demi Lovato's mother says the singer is "doing really well" nearly two months after being hospitalized for a drug overdose.

PREGNANCY NEWS: Carrie Underwood, 35, told CBS Sunday Morning this week that she experienced three miscarriages in two years. She is currently pregnant again.

LINEUP CHANGE: Cary Joji Fukunaga has replaced Danny Boyle as director of the next James Bond film. The film, Daniel Craig's fifth and likely final go-around as the British super-spy, also had its worldwide release date pushed back to Feb. 14, 2020. Fukunaga is the first American filmmaker to helm the traditionally British franchise.

FOOT-IN-MOUTH ALERT: Sean Penn says much of the spirit of the #MeToo movement is to "divide men and women." Penn appeared Monday in an Today interview with the co-star of the new Hulu show The First, which centers on a mission to Mars. The president of the United States and three of the five astronauts are women.

LEGAL NEWS: A New York judge dismissed charges against Liev Schreiber for allegedly attacking a local photographer while filming Ray Donovan.

LEGAL NEWS: Brad Pitt's foundation has sued a New Orleans architect, saying defective design work led to flaws in homes built for residents of an area that was among the hardest hit by Hurricane Katrina.
