Simon Pegg on the rumours of him appearing in Star Wars: Episode VII

29 July 2014 3:24 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite the fact that J.J. Abrams stated he wouldn’t be casting any Star Trek alumni in Star Wars: Episode VII, we’ve heard on a few occasions that Simon Pegg is set for a “secret role” in the hotly-anticipated first chapter of Disney’s sequel trilogy.

Pegg was reported to have visited the Dubai set to film his scene(s), and over the weekend his Star Trek Into Darkness co-star Benedict Cumberbatch apparently confirmed the Cornetto Trilogy star’s involvement during an interview at Comic-Con. Well, Pegg has now responded to those rumours during an interview with Vulture:

“J.J. uses me in different roles, and we’re good friends. I feel like my face in Star Wars would pop people out of the movie. Look, I love Star Wars, and I don’t want people to watch and go, Oh, there’s Simon Pegg’s face. The film »

Star Wars: Episode VII production underway in Ireland

29 July 2014 5:56 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A few days ago it was reported that Star Wars: Episode VII was heading to the stormy shores in the South West of Ireland, specifically the secluded island of Skellig Michael, approximately 12km off the coast of County Kerry. Rumours ran rampant – like every single thread of Episode VII news – about who or what was going to be filmed.

It’s thought to be a second unit but that doesn’t mean that some of the big names won’t be making an appearance. Last night a few images popped up online of the production crew setting up, take a look below.

 

And while there’s is no actual pictures of J.J.Abrams or any of the original trilogy cast, some of the Hamill family have been captures on camera. Below are Mark Hamill’s wife Marilou, daughter Chelsea and two sons Griffin and Nathan arriving at Portmagee harbour. »

Star Wars: Episode VII is heading to Ireland

24 July 2014 9:32 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

J.J. Abrams is currently filming Star Wars: Episode VII in Abu Dhabi, but will soon be packing up his new X-Wing and taking the film to Ireland. According to the Office of Public Works, filming will commence off the coast of County Kerry. They’ll be filming around Skellig Michael, an island in the Atlantic Ocean 11.6 km west of County Kerry’s Iveragh Peninsula.

Apart from the typical beautiful scenery Ireland has to offer, Skellig Michael is unique because it’s home to some ancient Christian Monastic ruins, which could fit in well as some dwellings on some alien world in the film. This also marks another great example of how Abrams is going back to Star Wars‘ roots and shooting on location instead of in front of a green screen. We may not know anything about the film’s plot yet, but we do know that the backgrounds and »

NY Asian 2014: Director Fei Xing Judges the Court Of Public Opinion in Silent Witness

21 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

A huge hit in its native China, Silent Witness starts as a taut courtroom drama and then writer/director Fei Xing flips the script to turn it into something more. He spoke with me about this commentary on social media and the court of public opinion.The Lady Miz Diva:  I was prepared for a courthouse thriller and then you made me cry. Was this what you intended with Silent Witness?  Your previous film, The Man Behind The Courtyard House was also known for twisting genres.  Is that kind of cinematic bait and switch creatively pleasing to you?Fei Xing: Yes! {Laughs} This is why I like films. I feel like films should be a wonderful journey.  So I think the best films have changes and also surprises...

J.J. Abrams reveals new Star Wars: Episode VII starfighter

21 July 2014 8:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now this is something to get really excited about Star Wars fans!

As part of the ‘Force for Change’ campaign old J.J. Abrams, director of Star Wars: Episode VII, has fronted a new video to announce what one lucky contributor could win. Now it is a wonderful prize (you’ll hear all about it in the video) but there as the video goes on you’ll notice something else that is also quite brilliant…

Watched it? Excited much?!?!

That right there is a new starfighter! But what is it exactly?

It looks a lot like an X-Wing, but also has many of the characteristics of the Z-95 Headhunter. If we look back to the original concept created by the legendary Ralph McQuarrie we see a fighter that also shares many similarities. Now the X-Wing went through many upgrades in the Expanded Universe of books, but with that no longer being in line with the films, »

The plot to Star Wars: Episode VII revealed?

20 July 2014 10:49 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Devin Faraci over at Badassdigest is claiming that he has the ‘exclusive’ plot details to Star Wars: Episode VII. While I’m doubting their veracity, there is still an outside chance that some of this could potentially constitute spoilers (in a world where pigs fly). Faraci says…

“Imagine the standard Star Wars crawl, and when it ends the camera pans up to the stars. But instead of a spaceship zooming into frame we see… a hand! A severed hand, tumbling through space. A severed hand gripping a light saber.”

It’s so idiotic I’m almost inclined to believe it. I didn’t believe the Jar Jar rumors when I heard them either. My instincts tell me it sounds almost too ludicrous to be true. Apparently the severed hand travels through space before winding up on a familiar planet…

“That hand falls onto a desert planet, where it is discovered »

First official synopsis for David Yates’ Tarzan reboot

17 July 2014 12:34 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows director David Yates is leaving the castles and magical schools of the wizarding world behind, and heading into the jungle for a reboot of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan. Production on the long-gestating project is finally underway, and to celebrate Warner Brothers have released its first official synopsis:

It has been years since the man once known as Tarzan left the jungles of Africa behind for a gentrified life as John Clayton III, Lord Greystoke, with his beloved wife, Jane at his side. Now, he has been invited back to the Congo to serve as a trade emissary of Parliament, unaware that he is a pawn in a deadly convergence of greed and revenge, masterminded by the Belgian, Captain Leon Rom. But those behind the murderous plot have no idea what they are about to unleash.

There have been over 200 film incarnations of the iconic apeman, »

Kevin Smith talks more about Star Wars: Episode VII

7 July 2014 1:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week we brought you the news of Kevin Smith talking about what he saw on the set of J.J. AbramsStar Wars: Episode VII. And while the Clerks director is sworn to the non-disclousure agreement, he took the time out to guest blog for The Hollywood Reporter with some other thoughts of what he saw…

“So we go to the set and they’re actually shooting, and they’re shooting – and I can’t tell you what they were shooting – but what I saw I absolutely loved,” Smith said. “It was tactile, it wasn’t a series of f***ing green and blue screens in which later on digital characters would be added. It was there it was happening.”

“I saw uniforms, I saw artillery that I haven’t seen since I was a kid. I saw them shooting an actual sequence in a set that is real. I walked across the set, »

6 July 2014 2:04 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last year, Disney and Lucasfilm embarked on a talent search for Star Wars: Episode VII, launching an open casting call across the States and the UK which resulted in over 67,000 applications, and now it has been announced that two entrants have secured roles in the eagerly-anticipated sequel.

According to the official Star Wars site American actress Crystal Clarke (The Moon and the Sun) and British actor and parkour practitioner Pip Andersen (who recently demonstrated his skills in a Spider-Man ad for Sony) have both signed on for unrevealed roles in the J.J. Abrams-directed Episode VII.

The Star Wars universe has always been about discovering and nurturing young talent and in casting Episode VII we wanted to remain absolutely faithful to this tradition,” states Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy. “We are delighted that so many travelled to see us at the open casting calls and that we have been able to »

Kevin Smith talks Star Wars: Episode VII, confirms Stormtroopers

2 July 2014 1:28 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

If there is one filmmaker who is not hiding his excitement for J.J. AbramsStar Wars Episode VII, it’s Kevin Smith. The Clerks director is currently in the UK touring animated film Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie along with Jason Mewes and his podcast Hollywood Babble-On with Ralph Garman. Before the show last night in London however, Kevin Smith was invited to the set of Star Wars Episode VII, the details of which he spoke about before the Hollywood Babble-On show.

Smith noted that he had signed a non-disclosure agreement so he couldn’t talk any specifics, but he did say that he saw costumes, characters and sets that took him back to his childhood.

“They had a sign at on the stage – I can’t even say which stage – which had the Imperial Starship logo and it said, ‘loose lips sink starships”.

Harrison Ford’s broken leg to delay Star Wars: Episode VII?

24 June 2014 1:36 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Although the initial word from Lucasfilm was that Harrison Ford’s injury would not severely impact production on Star Wars: Episode VII, it is now being rumoured via Jedi News that filming could be “pushed back by a substanial amount of time” due to the actor suffering a break to his left leg. According to the site, an Episode VII production team met yesterday to discuss how the shoot will be affected by Ford’s recovery time, and with Han Solo said to be one of the main characters of the sequel, there is now a strong possibility that the film could fail to meet its planned December 2015 release date.

Ford is joined in the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII by returning stars Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia), Anthony Daniels (C-3Po), Kenny Baker (R2-D2) and Peter Mayhew (Chewbacca), while newcomers to the galaxy far, far »

Tom Cruise to cameo in Star Wars: Episode VII?

23 June 2014 6:42 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Now, bear in mind that this story originates from the British tabloid The Sun, so it’s probably best taken with a rather large pinch of salt. However, according to the newspaper, Tom Cruise (Oblivion, Edge of Tomorrow) is said to be in talks with Lucasfilm about making a cameo in Star Wars: Episode VII. Director J.J. Abrams is apparently keen on reuniting with Cruise, having worked with him on Mission: Impossible III and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol – and the two are said to have met up in London over the weekend. Naturally this doesn’t particularly mean anything, but if it sells a few newspapers, who cares?

Star Wars: Episode VII is set for release on December 18th 2015, with 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 Star Wars newcomers »
