The primary cast of the original 'Star Wars' trilogy have all but guaranteed they'll be showing up in the J.J. Abrams-directed 'Star Wars: Episode 7,' though there was a question if Harrison Ford would return. The latest report is that not only will Ford be back, he may be in for all three films in the new trilogy. And supposedly part of the deal to get Han Solo to return involves work starting on 'Indiana Jones 5.'
Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the most important figures in twentieth century America, which makes it odd that he's yet to receive the cinematic bio-pic treatment. Now it looks like Oliver Stone will bring his story to the big screen, with 'The Amazing Spider-Man 2' star Jamie Foxx playing the famous civil rights leader.
As hard as it will be to say goodbye to Bryan Cranston's Walter White and those still left alive in the cast, 'Breaking Bad' has made its goodbye a little longer by extending the final two episodes to seventy-five minutes a piece.
Though Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the biggest movie stars in the world, he's yet to win an Oscar. It seems he wants one, as Warner Brothers has optioned a Woodrow Wilson biography for DiCaprio to produce and star in, likely in the hopes of netting him a gold statue.
It's been almost 20 years since Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Cameron last worked together on 1994's 'True Lies,' so we'd be overjoyed to the see the duo paired together again. The latest rumor hints at just that, as supposedly Arnie will join Cameron's 'Avatar 2' as the bad guy.
When the 'Beverly Hills Cop' TV show failed to get off the ground, word was that Paramount might instead go with a new film installment of the franchise (which had been rumored for a while, with Brett Ratner supposedly set to direct it). The latest rumblings suggest a fourth film might happen, with Eddie Murphy reuniting with producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who was behind the first two movies.
If we feel a little mixed about 'Star Wars: Episode 7' bringing back Harrison Ford's Han Solo, or Carrie Fisher's Princess Leia, it's only because seeing the passage of time on the actors might be distracting. But the original 'Star Wars' trilogy's ships and technology are ageless, so it's exciting the latest rumor is that the Millennium Falcon will be a part of the new films.
'Jurassic Park 4' was initially set for what seemed like an unrealistic 2014 launch, as the film had a release date before it had a director. But now the Colin Trevorrow-helmed sequel has a new title and release date. 'Jurassic World' has just been scheduled for June 12, 2015.
Of all the TV shows to be turned into movies, 'The Fall Guy' actually makes sense to translate to the big screen, so color us excited that Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is in talks to star in a big screen reboot with McG eyed to direct.
Though no casting has been officially announced yet, many of the behind the scenes players on 'Star Wars: Episode 7' are starting to line up. It appears that J.J. Abrams' regular cinematographer Dan Mindel has joined the movie, and he's revealed that the latest episode of 'Star Wars' will be shot on film.
Though 'Star Wars: Episode 7' may have sat out Comic-Con, now that it's a Disney product, it's possible we'll get the first big casting announcement this year at Disney's D23, which is coming in August. But news has broken that Zac Efron and Ryan Gosling are being talked about for the film, and that Gosling is up for the role of Luke Skywalker's son.
