Lawrence Kasdan Reveals What it Takes to Write a Good 'Star Wars' Movie

8 December 2015 3:10 PM, PST | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Writer-director Lawrence Kasdan might not be as well-known as George Lucas, but he's vitally important to the architecture of "Star Wars." He wrote "The Empire Strikes Back" and co-wrote "Return of the Jedi," and now he's returned to the franchise to write "The Force Awakens."

While his "Force Awakens" co-writer and director J.J. Abrams (pictured below) has admitted to being under "an insane amount of pressure" to deliver something the fans will love, Kasdan is remarkably calm about this year's most anticipated movie. As he told Moviefone at a recent press event for the film, he was only concerned with pleasing the people making the film.

He also sang the praises of Harrison Ford, whom he calls "an actual superhero" for bouncing back from his on-set accident and for his input into where his cinematic alter ego should be 32 years after "Return of the Jedi."Moviefone: Did you feel a »

Screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan is Done With ‘Star Wars’ After His Han Solo Movie

11 November 2015 8:30 AM, PST | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Once upon a time, Lawrence Kasdan wrote (and occasionally directed) many of your favorite movies. You’ll find his name on Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, Body Heat, The Big Chill, and Silverado. For a stretch, he had a magic touch – whatever he touched turned into something […]

'Han Solo' Spinoff Is Lawrence Kasdan's Last 'Star Wars' Movie

10 November 2015 2:13 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Aside from George Lucas, one of the most important figures in the legacy of Star Wars is arguably Lawrence Kasdan. The filmmaker made his screenwriting debut on 1980's Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back, co-writing the script with Leigh Brackett, and he returned to co-write Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi with George Lucas himself. More than 30 years later, he returned to co-write Star Wars: The Force Awakens with J.J. Abrams, and he is also writing the Star Wars Anthology: Han Solo Movie with his son Jon Kasdan, which is set for release on May 25, 2018. During a new interview with the German newspaper Bild (translated by The Supernaughts), the writer revealed that the Han Solo Movie will be his last Star Wars film.

"This is my last film for this saga. I did not even want to do this last one anymore, but my family loved the idea. »

The 57 Greatest Westerns Ever, Ranked

26 May 2015 2:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

It's fitting that Clint Eastwood and John Wayne both have the same birthday week. (Wayne, who died in 1979, was born May 26, 1907, while Eastwood turns 85 on May 31). After all, these two all-American actors' careers span the history of that most American of movie genres, the western.

Both iconic actors were top box office draws for decades, both seldom stretched from their familiar personas, and both played macho, conservative cowboy heroes who let their firearms do most of the talking. Each represented one of two very different strains of western, the traditional and the revisionist.

As a birthday present to Hollywood's biggest heroes of the Wild West, here are the top 57 westerns you need to see.

57. 'Meek's Cutoff' (2010)

Indie filmmaker Kelly Reichardt and her frequent leading lady, Michelle Williams, are the talents behind this sparse, docudrama about an 1845 wagon train whose Oregon Trail journey goes horribly awry. It's an intense »

Check Out The Great Poster For 'Bone Tomahawk' Starring Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, And Richard Jenkins

8 May 2015 9:05 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

“...if you’re a child of the 80s, your Westerns are 'Silverado' and 'Tombstone,'” "Bone Tomahawk" co-star Patrick Wilson told EW. “To do a movie with Kurt [Russell] is one thing — to do a Western with Kurt is like, ‘Alright! I’m going to be next to Wyatt Earp up there on a horse!’” And the actor's excitement certainly matches ours. With the cast being rounded out by Matthew Fox, Richard Jenkins, Lili Simmons, David Arquette, Fred Melamed, and Sean Young (!) this horror-western (!!) boasts an intriguing premise: a sheriff teams up both with a cowboy and a bumbling old man (Jenkins) to rescue a group of captives from a bunch of cannibalistic cave-dwellers. And yet, the one concern is that this film, marking the directorial debut of S. Craig Zahler, still has no distribution, which does make one wonder about the finished product.  However, it seems that »

Scott Glenn on 'Daredevil': 'I live, for an old man, a pretty adolescent life'

7 May 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Scott Glenn has spent 35-plus years playing the toughest of tough men. Since his breakthrough performance as John Travolta's rival in "Urban Cowboy," he's played astronauts ("The Right Stuff"), cowboys ("Silverado"), vengeful bodyguards (the original "Man on Fire"), submarine commanders ("The Hunt For Red October") and FBI agents ("The Silence of the Lambs"), among other jobs, always looking lean, weathered, and alert of everything around him. With rare exceptions — a "Monk" two-parter years ago, a handful of TV movies — he's played all these roles on the big screen. His career started in television (his first two screen credits were minor guest spots on "The Patty Duke Show"), but unlike many of his contemporaries, Glenn never tried to take a regular TV job as he got older. Then last year, he agreed — with some reluctance — to play Kevin Garvey Sr., the possibly-crazy, possibly-psychic father of Justin Theroux's cop hero of HBO's "The Leftovers, »

From Actor to "Action!", Exploring the Debuts of 19 Actors-Turned-Directors

21 April 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Over the course of film history, we've seen plenty of long-time actors step behind the camera to take up their directorial ambitions. Clint Eastwood did it. Mel Gibson did it. George Clooney did it. What do these three have in commonc Well, for starters, they are all men, so there's that. Further, they are all white, but more on that later. More to the point of the article, these men all eased into their directorial careers by starring in their respective debuts, using their presence on screen to help market their talents off it. And with his feature directorial effort The Water Diviner, which hits limited theaters this week, Russell Crowe is just the most recent addition to a growing list of actors who have decided to try their hand behind the camera. Like Eastwood, Gibson, and Clooney before him, the Best Actor winner stars in his first feature as director, »

Round-Up: First Still from Rob Zombie’s 31, Jeff Fahey Joins From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series, Rekindling of Hope Exclusive Excerpt

31 March 2015 2:48 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Shrouded in shadows, Doom-Head is featured in creepy fashion in the first still from Rob Zombie's 31. Also included in our latest round-up is a casting update for the second season of From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series and an exclusive excerpt from Doug Lavers’ sci-fi thriller, Rekindling of Hope.

Rob Zombie's 31: Played by Richard Brake, Doom-Head dominates the first official still from Rob Zombie's 31 (see below). Since the news broke earlier this month that Malcolm McDowell had joined the cast of 31 as Father Murder, more actors have joined the film's ranks:

Pancho Moler (2005's Bad News Bears, American Horror Story: Freak Show) plays Sick-Head. Jeff Daniel Phillips (The Lords of Salem, Halloween 2) portrays Roscoe, "the ass-kicking carney mechanic of Venus Virgo’s traveling show." Jane Carr (Curb Your Enthusiasm, How I Met Your Mother) plays Sister Serpent, "a wicked cross of Satan meets Mother Goose. »

31 Things We Learned from Tony Scott’s Revenge Commentary

16 February 2015 8:45 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Kevin Costner has a new film opening this week, and I’ve already forgotten about it. That’s probably a bit too harsh as I’ll watch anything starring Costner, and he’s also someone who’s starred in more movies I find it impossible to turn off once started than anyone else — No Way Out, The Untouchables, Tin Cup, Silverado, Field of Dreams, Open Range, The Bodyguard (yeah I said it) — but the man’s made some unfortunate choices in recent years. (Although I will fight you over the underseen The New Daughter and its kick-ass ending.) Back in 1990, near the height of his career, Costner joined forces with Tony Scott — a director at the equivalent peak of his own career — to deliver a dark thriller about lust and consequences in rural Mexico. Revenge tanked at the box-office, but Costner and Scott quickly got back into Hollywood’s good graces with Dances with Wolves and Days of Thunder »

Asc Awards: Honoree John Bailey is the ‘Accidental Cinematographer’

12 February 2015 2:40 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A lot of award winners through the years have expressed shock and surprise and claim they never expected to get what they were getting. John Bailey you actually believe.

“I’ve never received an Academy nomination or an Asc nomination or any kind of, you know, accolade from my peers,” says Bailey, who on Feb. 15 will receive the American Society of Cinematographers Lifetime Achievement Award, an honor given in recent years to Roger Deakins, Dante Spinotti, Caleb Deschanel and Michael Chapman.

“I think this is by virtue of the kinds of films I do,” he says. “They’re not necessarily ones that call attention to the cinematography.”

That body of work includes “The Big Chill,” “As Good as It Gets,” “Silverado,” “The Accidental Tourist” and Oscar’s best picture of 1980, “Ordinary People.”

“That film was incredibly important to me, because it confirmed for me that I wanted to do films »

Flashback: 30-Year-Old Kevin Costner Says His Career Will Be Fun to Watch

30 January 2015 5:15 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Oscar-winning actor Kevin Costner plays a grandfather caught in a custody battle over his granddaughter in Black or White, a heartwarming story that faces issues of race and compassion that hits theaters Jan. 30.

Watch: 'Black or White' Stars On Racism In America: 'The Answer Lies in Love'

Costner's career has spanned three decades, and we dug into our Et vault and found our very first interview with the actor thirty years ago, when he was just an up-and-coming star.

“I got everything that one could possibly ever want,” Costner told Et back in 1985 of his newfound career, “and it doesn't have anything to do with screen time, it has to do with the right circle -- the associations of people and them knowing your work and wanting to work with you again.”

Then 30, Costner was coming off two major breakout roles, as Marcus Sommers in American Flyers, and as Jake in the western Silverado, a role »

Kevin Costner Explains Why He Spent $9 Million of His Own Money to Make ‘Black or White’ (Q&A)

4 January 2015 10:29 PM, PST | Scott Feinberg | See recent Scott Feinberg news »

By Scott Feinberg

The Hollywood Reporter

A version of this story appears in the The Hollywood Reporter’s January awards issue.

Kevin Costner, who has been one of Hollywood’s most popular leading men for the past 30 years — from SilveradoThe Untouchables, Bull Durham and Field of Dreams to Dances with Wolves, JFK and The Bodyguard — will turn 60 in January, if you can believe it. But don’t for a second think that he’s slowing down: In addition to passion projects that range from financing and designing a machine to clean up oil spills to financing and co-authoring a series of family-friendly books, he has just completed a controversial new film, which he also bankrolled when others shied away from it.

Black or White, which Relativity Media will release in select theaters on Jan. 30, reunites Costner with his Upside of Anger writer-director Mike Binder and had its world premiere »
