Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars Spinoff Gets A New Writer

14 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

It was revealed not too long that writer Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli) had left Gareth Edwards’ untitled Star Wars spinoff upon completion of the movie’s first draft. Various sites reported at the time that Simon Kinberg might be brought in as a replacement, but it is in fact Chris Weitz who has landed the job!

Even if the name isn’t familiar, his work should be.

The Academy Award nominated screenwriter’s writing credits include About A Boy and The Twilight Saga: New Moon. He also penned Kenneth Branagh’s (Thor) upcoming live-action remake of classic Disney fairytale Cinderella.

Weitz is also an author (he’s currently working on a new series of Ya novels) and director, and helmed the Oscar nominated A Better Life and The Golden Compass. That’s a varied and impressive CV to say the least!

It’s still not clear what this movie will focus on, »

Chris Weitz to write stand-alone Star Wars movie

16 hours ago | National Ledger | See recent National Ledger news »

Chris Weitz is to write the stand-alone 'Star Wars' movie. The 45-year-old director - who's worked on a wide range of high-profile films, including 'About a Boy' and 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' - is set to script the Gareth Edwards-directed movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The screenwriter will replace Gary Whitta, who exited the project earlier this month after finishing a first draft of the script. The much-anticipated movie - which is one of two 'Star Wars' spin-offs currently in development - is in the early stages of casting. Tatiana Maslany and Rooney Mara, for instance, have both been linked to the female lead in the stand-alone movie. Oscar-nominated actress Felicity Jones is also said to be on the wanted list, although her involvement with the project depends on her schedule for 'Inferno', the 'Da Vinci Code' sequel.

Chris Weitz Will Pen Star Wars Spinoff

18 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Following The Book of Eli scribe Gary Whitta’s departure from Godzilla director Gareth Edwards’ upcoming Star Wars spinoff, a new screenwriter has been recruited to explore the galaxy far, far away – About a Boy co-director/co-writer Chris Weitz (who received an Oscar nomination for his work on that screenplay).

Whitta left the untitled project after working on and completing a first draft over the course of a year, but it’s unclear how much of his vision for the spinoff will actually make it to theaters. The prolific Simon Kinberg was rumored to have replaced him as scribe, but it now appears that Weitz has been tapped to pick up the pen and take a swing at the Star Wars spinoff.

In addition to his work on About a Boy, Weitz is known for writing the upcoming Cinderella adaptation, directing and penning The Golden Compass, helming mega-blockbuster The Twilight Saga: New Moon »

‘Sniper’, ‘Boy Next Door’, ‘Mortdecai’ Up In Actuals; ‘Taken 3′ Cume Shifts: Intl Bo

21 hours ago | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

2Nd Update, Tuesday 4 Am Pt: Actuals are in for the international weekend with no major discrepancies save for a big drop on Taken 3. After Sunday’s report of a $57.2M total in non-Fox markets, the confirmed total came in at $39.8M. The difference was down to an incorrect cume provided to Fox by EuropaCorp for those territories. The overseas total is now a corrected $134M. In new pics, both JLo-starrer The Boy Next Door and Johnny Depp’s Mortdecai saw small bumps (up a respective $23K and $70K). American Sniper reloaded to $18M from a previously projected $17.6M.

Updated below are final numbers on those films along with: The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb, Penguins Of Madagascar, The Theory Of Everything, Unbroken, Seventh Son, Exodus: Gods And Kings, Into The Woods, Ouija, The Imitation Game, Birdman, Ex Machina, »

Gareth Edwards ‘Star Wars’ Movie Has A New Writer

26 January 2015 11:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Chris Weitz has taken over from Gary Whitta as scriptwriter on the forthcoming Star Wars origins film. Weitz’s credits include adaptations of About A Boy and His Dark Materials (The Golden Compass), so he appears a reasonable choice to balance the elements needed for a sci-fi actioner with mass appeal.

Director Gareth Edwards is to focus on a popular character from the franchise’s ever-expanding universe. Though the subject isn’t known, it is believed to be someone from the original trilogy. Intriguingly, Rooney Mara and Felicity Jones have apparently been talking to the director about a possible role. Might this suggest a younger Leia could be front and centre for the instalment?

The standalone project will hit cinemas in December next year, twelve months after Disney launch the much-anticipated Episode VII: The Force Awakens.

Chris Weitz Joins Gareth Edwards’ ‘Star Wars’ Standalone Pic as Writer

26 January 2015 4:44 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Chris Weitz has come on board to pen Gareth Edwards’ “Star Wars” standalone movie for Disney and Lucasfilm.

He replaces Gary Whitta, who wrote the first draft of the script. Weitz’s involvement shouldn’t delay the start of production for the film, which is set for release on Dec. 16, 2016. Weitz was nominated for an Oscar for his work on the “About a Boy” adapted screenplay.

The film will be some sort of origin tale for a classic “Star Wars” character, with Boba Fett and Han Solo rumored to be possible routes, but more details of the story are unknown.

Edwards has been meeting with women, including Rooney Mara and Felicity Jones, for one of the female roles.

Weitz is repped by Wme. The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.

'Star Wars' Spinoff Gets 'Cinderella' Writer Chris Weitz

26 January 2015 4:38 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Less than a month after the Untitled Gareth Edwards Directed Star Wars Spin-Off parted ways with screenwriter Gary Whitta, the project has found a new writer with Chris Weitz signing on to take over writing duties. Gary Whitta completed a first draft on the project, although no story details have been confirmed, and it isn't known if Chris Weitz will start over completely from scratch, or if he will use elements of Gary Whitta's first draft. We reported last week that the spinoff may feature both Boba Fett and Han Solo, which will be reportedly shot in Mexico.

While nothing official has been released about the plot, a rumor surfaced last month that claimed the story centers on space pirates trying to steal the plans to the original Death Star. Of course, even if those details were true, the script could change drastically with this new writer on board. »

'Birdman,' Eddie Redmayne & Julianne Moore Win 2015 SAG Awards

26 January 2015 8:10 AM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

While we're in the mountains covering the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, last night Hollywood had a big night with the ceremony for the 21st SAG Awards, honoring acting in film from 2014. After winning the Golden Globe, deserving Best Actor nominee Michael Keaton didn't end up taking home the prize for Leading Actor. Instead, that honor went to Eddie Redmayne for The Theory of Everything, which was a bit of an upset since Keaton was the favorite. But Birdman still ended up taking the SAG equivalent of Best Picture since it won the award for the entire ensemble cast. Anyway, see the rest of the winners below. Here's all the film winners from the 21st SAG Awards (see television winners at Vulture): Actor: Steve Carell - Foxcatcher Benedict Cumberbatch - The Imitation Game Jake Gyllenhaal - Nightcrawler Michael Keaton - Birdman Eddie Redmayne - The Theory of Everything Actress: Jennifer Aniston »

"Birdman" Flies High at SAG Awards, Eddie Redmayne Surprises

26 January 2015 7:37 AM, PST | Manny the Movie Guy | See recent Manny the Movie Guy news »

If you're betting on "Boyhood" to win big at the upcoming Academy Awards, think again! Richard Linklater's "Boyhood" was deemed to be the big Oscar frontrunner but a double-dose of guild awards over the weekend tamed those prospects down. First, the Producers Guild of America gave their top honor to Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Birdman," and the Screen Actors Guild followed suit!

"Birdman" took home the Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture award! But, since the movie is about acting, this award is just fitting.

My biggest surprise, and it'a welcome surprise indeed, was "The Theory of Everything's" Eddie Redmayne taking home the Outstanding Male Actor trophy. Sorry Michael Keaton! I think Redmayne truly gave the Performance of the Year award!

The usual suspects took home the movie acting awards with wins for Julianne Moore for Best Actress in "Still Alice," J.K. Simmons for Best Supporting Actor for "Whiplash, »

Red lips and ponytails and sleek strands, oh my! Yes, the 2015 SAG Awards certainly had its fair share of beauty trends. But before we get into that, let's just admire the hair and makeup individually. Because while Keira Knightley might not have been rocking any of the fads, her smoky eye was one of our favorite beauty effects of the night. Plus, her half-up, half down 'do would have made Kate Middleton proud. On to best glow, which goes to—like you don't already know—Lupita Nyong'o. The Oscar winner looked like she got a facial in the fountain of youth before she hit the carpet. Fresh face runner up is the lovely Felicity Jones. Minimal makeup »

Julianne Moore Wins SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role

Julianne Moore was honored by her peers on Sunday when she took home the Screen Actors Guild Award for outstanding performance by a female actor in a leading role for her performance in Still Alice. "When I was on As the World Turns," Moore, 54, said to cheers, "I was so excited when they wrote two parts for me, the classic twin sister role, the good and the evil one ... and then I realized it was super boring to act by myself. And what I really loved, what I really craved, was being with another actor." Moore then thanked her costars, »

2015 Screen Actors Guild Award Winners: 'Birdman' Wins Best Ensemble, but is It the Oscar Frontrunnerc

25 January 2015 6:20 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

The 2015 Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced tonight and if you're like me, the Best Ensemble win for Birdman makes it your new frontrunner for Oscar's Best Picture as it has now won not only with the Producers Guild, but with the Screen Actors Guild. Of course, there is one oddity to this win, while it took home ensemble, Michael Keaton lost Best Actor to Eddie Redmayne (The Theory of Everything), Emma Stone lost Best Supporting Actress to Patricia Arquette (Boyhood) and Edward Norton lost Best Supporting Actor to J.K. Simmons (Whiplash). Apparently Birdman is all about the sum of its parts... I can accept that. The only category I haven't mentioned was Julianne Moore winning Best Actress for Still Alice and perhaps I don't mention that because it's quite simply a joke. Put that performance alongside the likes of Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) and can you really tell me »
