After a brief hiatus, Star Wars: Episode VII has resumed production following Harrison Ford's well-publicized injury on set. He joins the rest of the cast in London, where filming will continue at Pinewood Studios.
Filming on the highly anticipated sequel actually began earlier this week under the direction of J.J. Abrams. Things had been quiet at Pinewood for the past couple of weeks after Harrison Ford broke his leg. The actor reportedly had a run-in with the Millennium Falcon ramp, which slammed shut on his ankle. That injury occurred in June.
It is not known who has joined Harrison Ford back on set this week, but we can guess that Peter Mayhew, who plays Han Solo's companion, is back alongside the actor. The cast includes old favorites such as Carrie Fisher, »
The production shut down for two weeks earlier this month to accommodate Ford, who underwent successful leg surgery after suffering an accident on the film set.
The break has not delayed the release date for Star Wars Episode VII, which is due to open on December 18, 2015 in the Us and the UK.
The seventh feature film will be followed by an undisclosed spinoff »
Good news for Star Wars fans – after shutting down production for several weeks in the wake of Harrison Ford’s leg injury on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII, it has now been announced the filming on the eagerly-anticipated first chapter of Disney’s Sequel Trilogy has now resumed in the U.K.
Ford suffered a broken leg back in May during an accident on the Millennium Falcon set, forcing director J.J. Abrams to rejig the schedule for Episode VII, before taking a break throughout August. However, with Ford now seemingly fully recovered from his injury, it looks like the film is back on track to meet its December 2015 release date, much to the relief of fans.
Star Wars: Episode VII sees returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Harrison Ford (Han Solo), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca) joined by »

Als Ice Bucket Challenge is the meme that can't be stopped. But unlike planking, or owling, or whatever came after owling, the Ibc is doing a lot of good. So far this year the Als Association has raised nearly $80 million. The uptick has been so sharp that think pieces are being written about if blending narcissism with charity has forever changed the fundraising landscape (for the better). So behold the power of this fully operational social media challenge. From Han Solo to Luke Skywalker to Chewbacca and beyond, the denizens of a galaxy far, far away are helping raise awareness for Als. The elusive Daisy Ridley performed her Ibc in the safety of the shower. Harrison Ford kept it short and sweet. Mark Hamill adorkably tried to game the system and utterly failed. Peter Mayhew brought along his wife for moral support. Awwww. Oscar Isacc allegedly had Adam Driver and »

Dennis Lehane, who wrote the novel Shutter Island is based on, will write the pilot script, with Martin Scorsese set to direct the first episode. The series is tentatively titled Ashecliffe, the name of the isolated mental hospital where the book and film are set, with the story to take place before the events of the movie. The show will focus on the hospital's past, and the sinister secrets of the facility's founders in the early 20th Century, who developed methods of treatment for the mentally ill.
The series was initially thought up by Paramount TV executive Amy Powell. She brought the idea to Martin Scorsese and Dennis Lehane, who loved the idea of expanding the story of his novel. Tom Bernardo is working as a co-writer with Dennis Lehane on the pilot. »
"Minority Report" may be coming to the small-screen. Steven Spielberg's blockbuster sci-fi film starring Tom Cruise is being developed as a TV series by the director's Amblin Television, according to Deadline, with "Godzilla" screenwriter Max Borenstein attached to pen the script. The project, which is still in the "very early stages," will take off from the film's near-future vision of a world in which a special police unit - aided by telepaths known as "precogs" - is able to arrest murderers before they commit their crimes. The premise is based on the short story of the same name by Philip K. Dick. No network is yet attached to the project. Released in the summer of 2002, "Minority Report" was met with critical acclaim and went on to gross over $350 million worldwide. It also starred Colin Farrell, Samantha Morton and Max von Sydow. Do you think a "Minority Report" TV series is a good idea? »

Minority Report starred Tom Cruise as Detective John Anderton, who runs the "Pre-Crime" unit in Washington D.C. that uses three psychics known as "precogs" to accurately predict crimes before they will happen, with arrests being made before the crime actually happens. The plot thickens when John is forced to go on the run after the precogs reveal he is about to commit murder.
The weekly series is said to focus on the elite Pre-Crime unit, with Steven Spielberg said to be eyeing a major star for the lead role, similar to how the producer lured Oscar winner Halle Berry to star in his CBS sci-fi series Extant.
20th Century Fox distributed Minority Report in 2002, which earned $358 million worldwide, but it's unclear whether or not the studio or the Fox »
It is a fascinating moment to be a "Star Wars" fan. Right now, there is arguably more energy being expended on all things "Star Wars" than ever before. I remember the feeling in the early days of development on what became "Star Wars Episode I - The Phantom Menace," when there were just rumbles of a possible new film or even *Gasp!* a new trilogy of films. Hell, I remember when the Special Editions were just a rumor. I remember when a friend of mine called and said, "They're not a rumor. I have something to show you." He came by my house with a videotape, and on that videotape was the very first teaser trailer for "Star Wars: A New Hope - The Special Edition," the very first new "Star Wars" footage in what had been fourteen years at that point. It was mind-blowing. It made me reassess »

The site, Indie Revolver, has been very busy with Star Wars VII spoilers. They've supplied the internet with images of the new Stormtroopers as well concept art of Han Solo's new wardrobe. And now, they've posted concept art featuring our first look at the main villain. Oh yeah, and he's holding Darth Vader's helmet. What?! Yup. They also have a description of the Sith Inquisitor. Besides having a robotic hand as previously mentioned by Badass Digest, they state: "He’s tall and thin and terrifyingly creepy, with glowing red eyes to match his red lightsaber. He’s got some robotic upgrades, like Vader – but no mask. The cybernetic bits weave in and out of him. He’s got a human upper lip, a steel jaw." - Indie Revolver Star Wars: Episode VII - Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, David Oyelowow, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, »

This morning we brought you a couple of images reportedly showing the new-look Stormtrooper designs for Star Wars: Episode VII, which made their way online via Indie Revolver, and now the site is back with some alleged concept art featuring Harrison Ford’s space scoundrel Han Solo. The second image in particular will be familiar to anyone who’s seen The Empire Strikes Back, and if genuine, it may support those earlier rumours that we’ll be heading back to Hoth in the J.J. Abrams-directed sequel. Take a look…

Apart from the odd glimpse here and there, J.J. Abrams has been keeping Star Wars Episode VII safely contained within his Mystery Box. What we have seen so far though certainly points to the Star Trek director taking inspiration from original trilogy production concepts by Ralph McQuarrie and Joe Johnston.
The following images – which are apparently the new Stormtrooper designs from the upcoming Star Wars trilogy which kicks off with Episode VII on December 18th – are another good indication of that, and this new look for the Imperial Forces seems to blend both the classic design with a modern twist which should work perfectly.
The final image is said to be either an updated version of the Snowtrooper’s last seen on Hoth in The Empire Strikes Back, though there has also been speculation that it could be a Jungle Trooper.

Production is scheduled to get back under way on Star Wars: Episode VII later this month, following a brief two-week hiatus to allow Harrison Ford to recover from his broken leg injury that he suffered on the set back in June.
