Oscar Isaac Talks 'Episode VII,' Working with 'Star Wars' Cast

2 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Always good to see someone in Star Wars: Episode Vii doing press for other projects. Both because I'm glad to see a promising group of new blood for the Star Wars universe, but because inevitably someone along the press-tour way will ask them about Star Wars.

This time it's Oscar Isaac promoting a movie called Two Faces of January. Isaac plays a guy scamming a living in Greece who runs into Kirsten Dunst and Viggo Mortensen. It takes place in the 1960s, it sounds very interesting.

But, Entertainment Weekly also asked him about the Star Wars and working with the original cast, getting him to mention being on set with multiple Storm Troopers. Neat!

Have you had much interactions with the original trio of Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill on or off-screen?

Yeah, I have. Both. They’re such funny people. Carrie is hilarious and doing such cool work. »

I don't just want to throw it all out there and spoil it for you.

Oscar Isaac Talks 'Star Wars 7' Stormtroopers and Original Cast

7 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Despite a preponderance of rumors, conjecture and unconfirmed information floating around about the highly-anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII, there isn't much we really know about the sequel, aside from which actors have been cast, and that production is still under way at Pinewood Studios in London. Oscar Isaac is one of the many newcomers to the franchise, and there has been plenty of speculation as to who he may be playing after the full cast was revealed in late April, with one rumor suggesting that he is portraying the son or another descendant of Harrison Ford's Han Solo.

Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with Oscar Isaac, who doesn't confirm exactly what character he's playing, although the actor does reveal he has scenes with original Star Wars cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill. Here's what he had to say, when asked if he's had interactions with the »

Oscar Isaac Promises ‘Star Wars: Episode 7′ Will Be ‘Fiery’

7 hours ago | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

It’s been nearly two years since Disney acquired Lucasfilm and set in motion an entire new chapter for the Star Wars universe - and streamlined the official canon storyline. In the months following, speculation ran rampant: Who would direct Episode 7? Which young actors would be considered for starring roles? Would original cast members Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher return?

While we have answers to many of those questions – plenty more remain. J.J. Abrams is in the director’s chair, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, as well as Oscar Isaac have been tapped for lead roles, and Hamill, Ford, and Fisher are set to reprise their roles as Luke, Han, ...

Oscar Isaac on working with Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Stormtroopers on Star Wars: Episode VII

7 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Entertainment Weekly to promote his latest film The Two Faces of January, Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) has taken a moment to talk about his upcoming role in J.J. Abrams’ hotly-anticipated first chapter in Disney’s Star Wars sequel trilogy. Revealing that he’s shared scenes with both Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford, Isaac talked about being on set alongside Imperial Stormtroopers, as well as the practical effects Abrams is employing for Star Wars: Episode VII.

“Yeah, I have [had interactions with them]. Both. They’re such funny people. Carrie is hilarious and doing such cool work. Harrison is back. He went on hiatus for a little while, but he’s 150 percent back. It’s pretty amazing to see him bounce back. He looks incredible. Everyone’s having a really good time. J.J. sets that tone. There’s a lot of enthusiasm and it’s being done with a lot of heart. »

Oscar Isaac On Star Wars, Stormtroopers, & Working With The Original Cast

11 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Since his great turn in Inside Llewyn Davis, Oscar Isaac has seen his Hollywood profile raised considerably. He's received critical acclaim for his work in the likes of the Two Faces of January and the upcoming A Most Violent Year, but the role everyone is most excited about is whoever the heck he'll be playing in J.J. Abrams' currently shooting Star Wars flick. Obviously he doesn't go into any detail on that (the rumour is he'll be playing the new owner of Han Solo's iconic ship the Millennium Falcon), but when asked if he's had any interactions with the original Star Wars trio of Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill on or off-screen, he provides an interesting response. "Yeah, I have. Both. They’re such funny people. Carrie is hilarious and doing such cool work. Harrison is back. He went on hiatus for a little while, but he’s 150 percent back. »

Oscar Isaac talks Patricia Highsmith thriller and 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

12 hours ago | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Oscar Isaac is having a pretty good year. The Juilliard-trained actor has been on a bit of a roll since being cast as the lead in Inside Llewyn Davis; the Coen brothers’ ’60s folk noir may not have gotten the awards traction that could have made Isaac’s breakout a truly golden ride, but it’s not like the lack of an Oscar nomination dimmed his prospects either. Not only did he score a choice role opposite Jessica Chastain in director J.C. Chandor’s A Most Violent Year, which recently received an awards-season friendly 2014 release date—he was also cast in Star Wars: Episode VII. »

'Star Wars 7' Ice Planet Confirmed; But Is It Hoth?

20 September 2014 4:15 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Spoilers often come from the strangest of places. Today, we have word that former James Bond actor Roger Moore, star of the Star Wars-influenced Moonraker, has seen the Ice Planet set in Star Wars: Episode VII with his own eyes. And Harrison Ford was present. But did he visit Hoth?

Roger Moore refused to say more about what he saw during his time spend on set, but this does match up with previous rumors that Star Wars: Episode VII is returning to the snowy planet seen during the first act of The Empire Strikes Back.

Star Wars 7 News has a transcript from a recent BBC interview, where the actor talks about visiting his old friend, director J.J. Abrams on the set. Here is that conversation:

Roger Moore: Anyway, the day before last, I know we stopped by the office, and I went up to see - on a very closed, »

Maps To The Stars review

19 September 2014 1:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

David Cronenberg serves up the ice-cold Hollywood satire, Maps To The Stars. Here’s Ryan’s review of a bloodcurdling drama...

With Maps To The Stars, the erstwhile king of venereal horror David Cronenberg trains his scalpel-like gaze on Hollywood, and the resulting film is as withering and unsettling as you might expect. Based on a screenplay by Bruce Wagner, it’s a Tinseltown drama vaguely in the tradition of Sunset Blvd or Swimming With Sharks, but layered with Cronenberg’s trademark fascination with the frailties of human flesh.

Mia Wasikowska plays Agatha, the young, wraith-like waypoint into a demented vision of upper-crust Los Angeles. Stepping off an overnight bus into the Californian sunshine, she’s in town to help Carrie Fisher (yes, that Carrie Fisher) with her latest novel, but really, her arrival has more to do with a disconnected group of people who all have three things in common: fame, »

Star Wars' C-3Po Demanded These 2 Things From J.J. Abrams Before Signing His Contract

16 September 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Just like Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher, actor Anthony Daniels is an incredibly important part of the Star Wars legacy. He's just slightly handicapped by the fact that you can't see his face under the C-3Po helmet. He and Kenny Baker, the man inside R2-D2, are the only actors to be part of every single film, so when Star Wars: Episode VII started to move into active development, it made perfect sense that they would return. The big question that was raised, however, was whether Daniels would once again be inside his C-3Po costume, as he always has been in the movies, or would instead be opting to use motion capture or simply provide his voice. According to the actor, it was never actually a choice. In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Anthony Daniels opened up about the process that led to him being »

Anthony Daniels Talks New C3PO Costume in 'Star Wars 7'

16 September 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If you were wondering whether the new C3PO will be CGI, or if Anthony Daniels is crawling back into that metallic suit on set, the man himself has provided the answer. He will be putting on the iconic costume once again, this time for director J.J. Abrams in Star Wars: Episode VII.

When J.J. Abrams called the actor to return for the movie, it was originally for a voice role only. Anthony Daniels explains how that transpired into what he is currently shooting, describing the new C3PO suit along the way, and why it's important that C3PO never be CGI again in a movie:

"I will tell you that when [director] J.J. Abrams rang me to ask about filming Star Wars: Episode VII, one of the first things he said after he told me how wonderful I was - and that didn't take long - but he then said, »

'Star Wars 7' Photos Reveal Adam Driver Is an X-Wing Pilot?

16 September 2014 1:31 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in February, long before Girls star Adam Driver was officially cast in Star Wars: Episode VII, it was rumored that he is playing the bad guy, described in the same vein as iconic Star Wars villain Darth Vader. Since none of the cast members' characters have ever been officially confirmed, many just assumed that Adam Driver is playing a Sith or other equally evil rogue. But today we have new photos from the set that appear to prove that is not the case.

Facebook user Rick Lawrence posted a number of photos from England, one of which appears to be a long-distance, blurry shot of Adam Driver wearing an X-Wing pilot uniform. The photos also appear to include John Boyega and Gwendoline Christie, but they are too blurry to tell for sure. Take a look at the images below, then read on for more details.

Rumor: Adam Driver Not a Villain in Star Wars: Episode VII?

From the moment Adam Driver stepped into the Star Wars: Episode VII rumor mill, there was talk about him playing a villain and we’ve been running with that idea ever since.  However, a photo just surfaced of Driver in costume on set that suggests otherwise.

Blu-ray Review: 'The 'Burbs'

16 September 2014 8:10 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆In director Joe Dante's endearing 1989 horror comedy The 'Burbs, starring Tom Hanks and Carrie Fisher, "love thy neighbour" is a term mostly adhered to by the residents of Mayfield Place. Living out a relatively peaceful existence in their quiet cul-de-sac, save for the odd lawn care disputes, the arrival of the mysterious Klopeks threatens to shatter the peaceful suburban bliss, particularly for immediate neighbours Ray Peterson (Hanks) and wife Carol (Fisher). The trio of unidentifiable Eastern Europeans ("Klopek - is that a Slavic name?") keep themselves to themselves, spending all night using their basement furnace and paying zero attention to the general upkeep of their property.

Greg Grunberg confirms 'Star Wars' role: 'If I say more Jj will have me killed'

15 September 2014 6:23 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) It’s well established by now that J.J. Abrams frequently casts childhood friend Greg Grunberg in television and film projects, ranging from "Felicity" and "Alias" to "Lost" and "Star Trek." So it’s to be expected for fans to wonder whether the "Heroes" veteran might appear in the Abrams movie everyone’s speculating about — "Star Wars: Episode VII."  The answer, perhaps, is just as expected. Asked on Twitter, “Hey, is it pretty safe to say that you’re gonna have a minor cameo in 'Episode VII' like all of his other movies #luckycharm?” Grunberg replied, “Yes @smgulz it Is safe to assume I have a role in #StarWarsEpisodeVII – If I say more than that, Jj will have me killed.” Grunberg joins a cast that includes "Star Wars" veterans Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker, and franchise newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, »
