After Universal Pictures shut down production on Fast & Furious 7 last week, following the untimely death of actor Paul Walker, many have wondered how the studio will move forward, with a bulk of footage already shot featuring the late actor.
Today, we have word that screenwriter Chris Morgan is working on script revisions that will allow the franchise to give Paul Walker a proper send-off, while using the scenes that have already been completed. This falls in line with our report from last week that revealed the sequel will be delayed, but not abandoned completely. But these changes are not a sure thing.
If the writer succeeds, production could resume as early as January. But, it isn't clear when Chris Morgan may have the revisions completed. Universal executives held a conference call the morning after Paul Walker's death on November 30 to discuss how to move forward with Fast & Furious 7. Insiders »
20th Century Fox has decided to move their sci-fi action sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes up one week from July 18, 2014 to July 11, 2014, the same date currently occupied by Fast & Furious 7. Despite the production being indefinitely delayed last week, following the untimely death of franchise star Paul Walker, Universal Pictures is still planning on keeping the July 11, 2014 date for now.
The Dawn of the Planet of the Apes release shift reportedly happened so 20th Century Fox can put some distance between itself and two potential blockbusters opening on July 25, Hercules: The Thracian Wars, starring Dwayne Johnson and Jupiter Ascending, starring Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis. It's possible that Fox is also banking on Universal eventually moving Fast & Furious 7 out of July 11, since it isn't immediately clear when production will resume, or how much shooting is left on the sequel. However, for now, Universal is sticking to its original release plan. »

The Sundance Film Festival announced the titles selected to screen in its out-of-competition Premieres and Documentary Premieres sections. Last year, the movies that were launched in these categories — which typically highlight filmmakers who’ve appeared at Sundance before — included Before Midnight, Don Jon, and The Way Way Back; this year appears to be just as promising. In Lynn Shelton’s Laggies, a young woman stuck in arrested-development (Keira Knightley) has her life upended by an unexpected marriage proposal. In David Wain’s They Came Together — surely, a naughty pun, yes? — Wet Hot American Summer alums Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd »

8 Survival Classics to Watch Before Shopping on Black Friday
Can you believe some people still leave their house the day after Thanksgiving to fight apocalyptic mobs for a bargain? Not in the middle of the day either. Sometimes immediately following dinner on Thursday afternoon. In fact, some folks sit outside their store of choice for days at a time, weeks even, hoping to be the first one to the back of the electronics department, where they'll score some door-buster DVD player for twenty bucks that won't even make it through the holidays. It's a dangerous landscape of marauders, and if you've watched the news on Black Friday over the past couple of years, you know this soon turns into rioting, and looting...And possibly even death. No matter what, someone's coming home empty handed with a couple of broken ribs. We're going to stay inside, on the couch, where it's safe and leftovers are abundant. »
Given that Fast & Furious 6 took in a massive $788 million worldwide this summer, the Blu-ray and DVD, available on December 10, may be some of the hottest gift items this holiday season. Today, we have word from Movies.com that the Blu-ray actually contains a scene from Fast & Furious 7, which is currently shooting in Atlanta.
Be warned, if you haven't seen Fast & Furious 6 yet, there will be spoilers contained throughout this description
"The scene in question is the gang at Han's funeral. So, if you were hoping that his death at the end of Fast & Furious 6 was a misdirect, it looks like you're out of luck. He's dead for real, and it's hit the gang hard. There aren't any tears shed (they're all too manly for that), but Vin Diesel does croak out "You were always my brother, Han. He put you in this grave, so now I'll do the same to him. »

Piers McCarthy reviews the sixth episode of The Walking Dead season 4...
Episode 5 of The Walking Dead’s fourth season was pretty impressive at points. Reviewing the episodes weekly can take a fair bit of time and sadly last week I didn’t have it. For a quick overview, I would point out the decent parts including Rick and Carl shooting a group of infiltrating walkers who broke through the fence, Hershel finally killing a zombie after a host of the prison-inhabitants turn, and the final shot of the Governor peering over at the prison from the woodland. This week’s episode should triumphantly follow on from that shot, but instead we see a different side to the Governor’s story, and a not altogether satisfactory one.
Major spoilers follow
The Governor is a tough-shelled, cold and animalistic character. He’s being pursued by Michonne like the beast he is. Or, »

Although it’s disappointing that the tagline for Josh C. Waller‘s Raze isn’t “One big room, full of bad bitches,” the stand-in “you should see the other girls” is a pretty fantastic way of getting the film’s message across: do not mess with Zoë Bell. The New Zealand-born stuntwoman turned actress, best known on the acting side of the screen for her work beating the hell out of Kurt Russell in Quentin Tarantino‘s Death Proof, has her work cut out for her in the female fighting flick, which she also produced. Bell plays Sabrina, who is abducted along with 49 other women and deposited in a warehouse of horrors where they are forced to brawl. The catch on top of the crazy is that their captors have taken one of their loved ones ransom as well; if they lose their fight, their child or husband or lover will also lose their life. Not »
