'Star Wars 8' Wants Hong Kong Action Star Donnie Yen?

3 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Late last week, it was heavily rumored that Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One has already begun production at London's Pinewood Studios, with star Felicity Jones having shot one major scene. And we're expected to hear some big announcements at this year's Comic Con, where Star Wars: The Force Awakens will have a big presence this Friday. But today, we have an unconfirmed rumor that Star Wars: Episode VIII, which is in pre-production with director Rian Johnson, is already starting to cast new actors. And apparently the production wants Hong Kong action legend Donnie Yen, known best in the states for his Ip Man franchise, for an important yet undisclosed role.

The news comes from Apple Daily, a Hong Kong tabloid not exactly known for its blockbuster movie scoops. They claim that Donnie Yen has already signed on, insuring that Star Wars: Episode VIII has international box office appeal. Spoiler Alert! »

'Inferno' Wraps: See Tom Hanks, Dan Brown and Cast in Amazing Set Photos

8 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Tom Hanks is returning to his role of Robert Langdon in the latest Dan Brown novel adaptation. "Inferno" is being directed by Ron Howard and produced by Brian Grazer (among others) for a fall 2016 release. And since it's just about finished filming as of early July 2015, does that mean Ron and Brian can now focus on "Arrested Development" Season 5? Please?

In reality, they'll still have a lot of work to do on "Inferno," even if the actors seem to be wrapping up their roles on set. "Inferno" co-stars Felicity Jones, Omar Sy, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Ben Foster, and Irrfan Khan. Filming started in April and most of it was shot in Budapest, Hungary. Ron Howard and stars have shared a few photos along the way, so here are some impressive recent and not-so-recent shots from the movie set, mostly from the director himself:

"Star Wars: Rogue One" Is Already Filming?

5 July 2015 9:17 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Two reports have emerged this week suggesting that filming is already underway at London's Pinewood Studios on "Star Wars: Rogue One," the upcoming first of the "Star Wars Anthology" films that will be released between the upcoming episodic entries in the series.

A production start date has yet to be confirmed for the film, but Sw Aficionado claims that filming has been under way for the past three weeks with a 'massive air/ground bombardment' currently being done along with a major action sequence involving Felicity Jones' character.

There's also at least one scene aboard the Death Star with the production redressing sets from 'Force Awakens' to show off new areas of the Battle Station. Meanwhile Making Star Wars reports that several trees have been brought into the studio for a scene involving a ship's landing in the jungle. There has also reportedly been some second unit shooting »

4 July 2015 2:28 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Star Wars Rogue One filming: Principal photography has commenced on Star Wars: Rogue One, the first stand-alone movie in the anthology. Star Wars Rogue One filming already?

We have news on Star Wars Rogue One filming: It has started! Yes, the Gareth Edwards-led movie, which will be the first Star Wars stand-alone movie, has kicked off shooting at Pinewood Studios, just outside of London. There are various reports suggesting that it just the second unit that have begun putting stuff before the camera, but there are others that Felicity Jones has also shot her first scene.

Making Star Wars and Star Wars Aficionado say that ‘loads of trees are being brought into the studio’ to shoot a ‘jungle landing’ scene, and some of the Star Destroyer sets and models have been brought over from The Force Awakens to be re-used on Rogue One. Blimey, this excites me.

Is 'Star Wars: Rogue One' Already Shooting?

3 July 2015 3:36 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

We've known for quite some time that Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One will be shot at London's Pinewood Studios this summer, but a production start date has never been confirmed. Two separate reports have surfaced this week claiming that shooting is already under way, with star Felicity Jones filming her first scene. Making Star Wars reports that several trees have been brought into the studio for a scene involving a ship's landing in the jungle. But not all of these landing scenes will be shot at Pinewood. There has also been some second unit shooting done with a number of ships including Star Destroyers, along with "some stuff" that looks like it could be the Death Star, but that has yet to be confirmed.

A separate report from earlier this week claims that shooting on Rogue One has been under way for the past three weeks, while confirming that jungle scenes are currently being shot. »

Filming on Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One is underway

3 July 2015 7:13 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone seeing as though the film is out next year, but reports are coming in that second unit production has already begun for Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. These reports have come from the Bothan spies from Making Star Wars and Star Wars Aficionado and even suggest that Felicity Jones has already shot her first scene.

The production has begun at Pinewood Studios in London (where they filmed Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and several trees have been brought into the set to film a jungle landing and bombardment sequence. The reports also say that several of the Star Destroyer sets and models have been brought over from The Force Awakens to be re-used on Rogue One. One report also claims that some sets from The Force Awakens are being re-dressed to act as the Death Star.

Filming On Star Wars: Rogue One May Have Already Started

2 July 2015 7:20 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

With Disney and Lucasfilm working tirelessly to expand the Star Wars universe like never before, we.re going to get more films faster than at any other point in franchise history. There has, understandably, been a great deal of emphasis on the upcoming J.J. Abrams-directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but with this new accelerated schedule, we were starting to wonder when the next installment, the standalone anthology film Star Wars: Rogue One, was going to get rolling, and according to reports, filming just got started. There.s been no official confirmation that the cameras have started rolling on Rogue One at London.s Pinewood Studios, but according to Making Star Wars, filming is indeed underway. Their sources even say that star Felicity Jones has filmed her first scene (according to another source, though one we.re unfamiliar with, Star Wars Aficianado, it.s possible shooting has »

Tomb Raider Reboot Eyeing Female Director?

30 June 2015 8:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Part of me wishes that this wasn’t even news, but there just aren’t enough female directors yet snagging big-budget tentpoles as to make the following seem unremarkable: MGM is rumored to be searching for a woman to reboot its Tomb Raider franchise, revitalizing the series that made a star out of Angelina Jolie and more recently birthed a stellar video game redo from Square Enix.

According to scoopster Umberto Gonzalez, MGM wants a “Michelle MacLaren type” at the helm for the Tomb Raider remake. What that means isn’t exactly clear, but MacLaren first made her mark on the small screen, directing key episodes of prestige series like Breaking BadGame of ThronesThe Walking Dead, The Leftovers and Better Call Saul. Warner Bros. hand-picked her to direct its high-profile Wonder Woman stand-alone, but she ultimately departed the project over the good ol’ creative differences and was replaced »

Complete list of Oscars new members: Benedict Cumberbatch, David Oyelowo, Emma Stone ...

26 June 2015 12:00 PM, PDT | Gold Derby | See recent Gold Derby news »

This year, a record 322 people were invited to join the motion picture academy. While Oscar nominees are automatically eligible for consideration, the rest of the candidates must go through a fairly cumbersome process. (See the full list after the break.) Among the 25 actors invited were the half dozen who contended at this year's Oscars for the first-time: winners Eddie Redmayne and J.K. Simmons and nominees Benedict Cumberbatch, Felicity Jones, Rosamund Pike and Emma Stone. Likewise, among the 26 directors to whom invitations were extended was Morten Tyldum ("The Imitation Game") while Damien Chazelle ("Whiplash"), Dan Gilroy ("Nightcrawler") and Graham Moore ("The Imitation Game") number among the 21 writers.   -Break- Join in the fierce debate about the early Oscar contenders going on right now in our red-hot forums A candidate must meet certain branch specific requirements before even being eligible.

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Turns out that neither Eddie Redmayne or J.K. Simmons could count on their own votes to put them over the top in at this year's Oscars. On Friday, it was announced that these two stars number among the record 322 people invited to join the motion picture academy. Also making the cut are four of this year's other first-time Oscar nominees: Benedict Cumberbatch, Felicity Jones, Rosamund Pike and Emma Stone.

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »

Adaptation Of The Good Spy Will Shine A Light On The Shadows Of The CIA

25 June 2015 4:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The mysteries of America’s foremost intelligence agency are fertile ground for storytellers, but the truth is always more powerful than fiction – particularly in the case of the 2014 biography The Good Spy: The Life And Death Of Robert Ames. Now, producing super-team Laurie MacDonald and Walter Parkes (Flight, Catch Me If You Can, Minority Report, Road To Perdition, the Men In Black franchise) have snapped up the rights to The Good Spy, and are planning to deliver a dramatic adaptation of it to the big screen.

Robert Ames was a CIA operative and the intelligence agency’s Near East Director. He allegedly made the first high-level infiltration of the Plo during his career, and was renowned for building productive and effective relationships with Arab intelligence figures. These bonds were seen to hold the key to lasting peace – but those hopes were dashed when he was killed in the suicide »
