'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.

15 September 2014 2:39 PM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

David Fincher wanted to reunite with his Fight Club star Brad Pitt for 20,000 Leagues Under the Seas, but Pitt turned down the lead role of Ned Land. The role Kirk Douglas played in Disney 1954 film based on Jules Verne's novel. After that, Fincher approached Daniel Craig ("Skyfall") and Matt Damon ("Finding Forrester"), but they too passed on the opportunity. When Fincher finally decided upon Channing Tatum ("22 Jump Street") for the part Disney balked at the choice and urged him to go with Chris Hemsworth ("Avengers: Age of Ultron"). Now, Fincher is doing press for Gone Girl and in an interview with Little White Lies he gives some insight his conflict with Disney that sank the film.  "You get over $200 million — all motion picture companies have corporate culture and corporate anxieties," he explained.

24th James Bond Movie Starts Shooting Dec. 6

15 September 2014 11:09 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Sam Mendes will begin filming the 24th James Bond film on Dec. 6, with the main cast members meeting for a table read that date at Pinewood Studios.

Daniel Craig will return as the iconic British spy for his fourth Bond movie. Also reprising their roles will be Ralph Fiennes as M, Naomie Harris as Eve Moneypenny, Rory Kinnear as Bill Tanner and Ben Whishaw as Q.

Mendes, who directed the last Bond pic,”Skyfall,” is helming from a script by John Logan that was rewritten by the team of Neal Purvis and Robert Wade. The three scribes collaborated on “Skyfall,” but Logan had previously been the only writer on the as-yet-to-be-titled film known as Bond24.

MGM, Sony and producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli announced last summer that they had locked in release dates for the film, setting the U.K. launch for Oct. 23, 2015, and U.S. for Nov. »

'Bond 24' Gets a Start Date: Hoytema Replaces Deakins

15 September 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | Thompson on Hollywood | See recent Thompson on Hollywood news »

Now, with Roger Deakins declining to return to "Bond 24" (not enough left in the Bond universe to satisfy him creatively), director Sam Mendes has brought on cinematographer Hoyte van Hoytema ("Interstellar," "Her," "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy") to shoot the sequel to "Skyfall."  Considering how Hoytema is such a thinking person's Dp and has created such distinctive visual palettes for directors Christopher Nolan ("Interstellar"), Spike Jonze ("Her"), and Tomas Alfredson ("Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and "Let the Right One In"), he should be the perfect match for Sam Mendes (who's worked with two of the best in the late Conrad Hall and Deakins). Who knows: "Bond 24" might see a return to shooting film as well. Meanwhile, there's another connection to the iconic "Goldfinger" for Daniel Craig's fourth outing as 007 (which opens October 23rd, 2015 in the UK and November »

David Fincher Offers Hope for Dragon Tattoo Sequel

15 September 2014 7:58 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

Sony Pictures and director David Fincher have been developing the sequel to The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo for a couple of years already, but it has been slow moving. The sequel is called The Girl Who Played With Fire, and its script was written by Steve Zaillian. In case you were wondering what the status of this movie is, the director recently gave a brief hopeful update in an interview with Afton Bladet, saying:

"I think because it [Sony] already has spent millions of dollars on the rights and the script so it will result in something. The script that we now have a huge potential, I can reveal as much as it is extremely different from the book."

It's good to hear that Fincher thinks they movie will eventually happen, and that the script has "huge potential." I'm really curious to see the "extremely" different changes they've made. I'm »

The Essential Movies & TV to Stream This Week – September 15th 2014

15 September 2014 6:48 AM, PDT | | See recent HeyUGuys news »

First of all, something of an apology. I have been writing this column thinking that every single title due for release the following Monday would of course be released via some kind of pay to stream service. Of course it would, we are living in the future, and this is how things are done isn’t it?

Apparently not, last week I included Jeremy Saulnier’s much loved Blue Ruin in the pay to stream section and then it didn’t come out the way I thought it might. Turns out that some companies still have a fairly limited release pattern so Blue Ruin was released by channel 4’s DVD label and appeared on DVD and Blu but didn’t show up to stream on any of the major providers, not even Sky Store or Playstation Network.

So turns out that being a channel 4 release, you can of course rent »

'Bond 24' Gets A Start Date

15 September 2014 5:24 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

With a release date of November 6, 2015, it was only a matter of time before the next James Bond film- nicknamed Bond 24, for now- would go before cameras. There have been a handful of reports regarding the kinds of locations that are being scouted lately. We all ready know that Sam Mendes is back in the director's chair. We know that John Logan (Skyfall), Neal Purvis, and Robert Wade were writing the script. We also know that Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomi Harris, and Ben Whishaw would be back as 007, M, Moneypenny, and Q, respectively. Now, thanks to MI6-hq, we know exactly when production will start.

On December 6th, principal photography will begin on Bond 24. As of now, nothing is known about the plot of the film, though it's likely going to continue the trend of the Craig films where it will have direct ties to its predecessor. »

First Look: Adam Driver on Star Wars: Episode VII Set

Today we have a bunch of new photos from the set of "Star Wars: Episode VII," giving us a look at the Rebel Alliance and actors Adam Driver ("Girls") and Gwendoline Christie ("Game of Thrones"). It's been rumored that Driver will play the main villain in the film, but it looks like he'll instead play one of the good guys. Check out the photos below. Meanwhile, Daniel Craig was spotted on set as well. Many assumed that he will make a cameo in "Star Wars: Episode VII," but in reality, he's at Pinewood Studios for pre-production on the next James Bond film. Nothing to do with "Star Wars."

David Fincher Still Thinks There's Going to Be Another 'Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' Movie

15 September 2014 2:40 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's good to dream. Which is exactly what director David Fincher seems to be doing when it comes to a proposed sequel to his 2011 thriller "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." The film came in like a sharp Swedish breeze, although it wasn't exactly the hit that Sony (or anyone else, for that matter) was expecting it would be, making just $102 million domestically on a production budget of at least that (plus marketing costs and whatever else goes along with launching a huge, starry, Oscar-contending tent pole). All of the principles involved in the film have pay-or-play deals in place, so even if the sequel, "The Girl Who Played with Fire," doesn't get made, they're still taking home fat checks (a screenplay by Steven Zaillian has been done for a while). But Fincher holds out hope.

David Fincher Optimistic For Sequel To The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

'Bond 24' to Begin Production December 2014

14 September 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Back in June, we reported that production on the highly-anticipated Bond 24 has been pushed to December 2014, with Skyfall co-writers Neal Purvis and Robert Wade returning to work on the original script by John Logan. Today, reports that shooting has been scheduled to begin on December 6, 2014.

Director Sam Mendes will assemble his cast including Daniel Craig, Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Rory Kinnear for a table read of the screenplay in late November at Pinewood Studios.

The filmmaker and producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson are currently casting for the Bond Girl and villain roles.

While several Scandanavian actresses have tested for a secondary roles, the primary Bond Girl will be British.

Daniel Craig reportedly films a secret role in Star Wars: Episode VII

14 September 2014 1:30 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Chalk this one up squarely as a rumour – especially considering its source is the UK tabloid The Sun – but it seems that Daniel Craig (Skyfall) may have shot a secret cameo appearance in Star Wars: Episode VII. Craig reportedly begged director J.J. Abrams for a role in the hotly-anticipated sequel, saying that he’d be happy to have his face hidden, and apparently shot the part this week at Pinewood, where he was spotted with Carrie Fisher. However, a more likely scenario is that Craig was at Pinewood for pre-production on Bond 24, which is set to begin filming this December.

Star Wars: Episode VII is set for release on December 18th 2015 and 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 Adam Driver (Girls), Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis), Andy Serkis »
