3 November 2014 3:51 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The Donmar Warehouse has announced its spring 2015 season, which includes a revival of Patrick Marber's Closer.

The season also features a new play for theatre and television about the 2015 general election and the world premiere of a new Steve Waters drama.

Artistic Director Josie Rourke revealed the season's line-up on the Donmar Warehouse Twitter account this morning (November 3).

The Olivier Award-winning play Closer by Patrick Marber is being revived, after it won multiple awards in 1997 and was turned into a hit film in 2004 starring Julia Roberts, Natalie Portman, Jude Law and Clive Owen.

David Leveaux will direct, while Nancy Carroll, Oliver Chris, Rachel Redford and Rufus Sewell will star.

Marber said of the revival: 'I'm thrilled to be returning to the Donmar with this revival of Closer. David Leveaux is a director I've longed to work with for many years. I'm greatly looking forward to this collaboration with him, »

Warwick Davis Returning For Star Wars: Episode VII

16 October 2014 10:33 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

It’s a question that has been on many a fan’s mind. Well, several. Well, mostly Warwick’s to be honest: will the man who played Wicket in Return Of The Jedi and the Ewok spin-off films before appearing in The Phantom Menace in a variety of roles show up in Star Wars: Episode VII? Now, thanks to Mr. Davis himself, we know the answer via his Twitter feed and a new video.Of course, we don’t yet know who or what he’ll be playing in the new film – the video doesn’t specify and J.J. Abrams would probably lock him in the Nockmaar dungeons if he did – but it feels like the director is continuing to pay homage to the original trilogy, with lots of practical effects and, of course, a batch of Davis’ old castmates including Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew and Kenny Baker. »

Luke Graham reviews 2000Ad’s Prog #1890…

Borag thungg, Earthlets! Prog 1890 of 2000Ad is packed to the gills with thrills and spills, but which strip delivers the most?

Speaking of deliveries, in part two of Sinister Dexter, Finnigan Sinister has to escape from delivery company Congo after his cover is blown. Swiftly dispatchingfive security guards in an inventive action scene, he escapes in mail truck. Unlike Mr. Davis,  I’m not a fan of Jake Lynch’s artwork here. The lines are too messy, it’s not always clear where one character ends and another begins. It’s just awful. At least Dan Abnett is moving the story in an interesting direction as Sinister and Dexter are invited to a… barbecue.

A new tale begins in Dredd as Joe investigates the disappearance of a mutant freshman. Writer John Wagner works his usual magic, exploring alienation and prejudice with the how the »
