Fact or Fiction: Sorting Out Rumors on ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’ Reshoots

5 June 2016 4:41 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Once the media started reporting reshoots for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, you can practically hear thousands of fans screaming on the Internet.

Don’t push the eject button yet.

Disney is going into spin control mode to calm the nerves of Star Wars fans and media alike.

So this is what we know:

Fact: There will be reshoots. The reshoots were always planned since the beginning of production to allow certain tweaks if necessary. Even Star Wars: The Force Awakens had some reshoots. And that film broke records at the box office.

Fact: According to Entertainment Weekly’s source, the reshoots involve dialogue scenes—not any combat scenes. The changes are with “clarity and character development.”

Fact: The new timeline is to lock the picture sometime around mid-August and score the movie in September. In comparison to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that picture locked in October after its reshoots. »

More details on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story reshoots, Tony Gilroy assisting Gareth Edwards

4 June 2016 10:18 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Since it was revealed during the week that Rogue One: A Star Wars Story will be undergoing reshoots, there’s been a tonne of rumours and speculation surrounding December’s first Star Wars Anthology movie: Disney execs are extremely unhappy with the first cut, Christopher McQuarrie has been brought in to replace Gareth Edwards (which McQuarrie strongly denied on Twitter), and around 40% of the movie is being reshot.

Well, Entertainment Weekly has been in touch with its Bothan spies at Lucasfilm to find out the truth behind the reshoots, revealing that they are set to get underway at the end of this month and will finish in August. Their source dismisses talk that almost half of the movie is being reworked, stating that: “If we were rewriting the movie and reshooting 40 percent of movie, we would not be finishing in August. People really would be panicking – and changing the release date. »

"Bourne" Scribe Tackling "Rogue One" Reshoots

3 June 2016 9:54 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

One of the biggest stories of this week was the news that "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" was set to shortly undergo reshoots following a studio screening of the film.

Those reports indicated that execs had issues with the darker tone and wanted something lighter and more "four quadrant friendly". As a result the additional filming, which is par for the course with most blockbusters these days, is set to be more extensive than usual. How extensive and what they entail is where all the rumors are running rampant right now.

Yesterday's report at Making Star Wars got people talking as it made some bold claims - that the reshoots will take eight weeks and involve up to 40% of the film being redone. Added to that Christopher McQuarrie would be working extensively with director Gareth Edwards onset to make sure they're on the "same page".

McQuarrie himself quickly shot »

Oh dear, it really doesn’t seem to be a very good week for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. It all began when news surfaced that the film would be undergoing reshoots as Disney had issues with the first cut. Of course, that sent the internet into a frenzy, with many people concerned that Gareth Edwards’ film was having problems. The studio soon cleared up the confusion though by announcing that the reshoots were simply to make room for a “special cameo.”

After that, everyone calmed down and went on with their business until last night we heard that the whole situation might be a lot more serious than we first thought, as 40% of the film needed to be reshot and Christopher McQuarrie was being brought on board to assist. This morning, however, McQuarrie shot down those rumors and again, »

The People Review: George Clooney Rings Up a Great Performance in Money Monster

12 May 2016 9:00 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

In this satiric comedy-drama directed by Jodie Foster - it's her fifth feature film - George Clooney plays Lee Gates, a Wall Street prophet of profit who hosts a Jim Cramer-like cable show. Lee talks a manic streak of highs and lows, winners and losers, buy-nows and sell-sooners, all syncopated to the nano-beat of computerized financial algorithms. Fast-talking comedy isn't always Clooney's strong point - in his movies for the Coen Brothers, he has a rattling briskness that can seem forced - but here he's deadpan smooth even as Lee plays around his set with props, video screens and backup dancers. »

George Clooney: His best performances to date

10 May 2016 11:02 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

When it comes to movie stars, few actors in Hollywood better encapsulate what you want out of a veteran A-lister than George Clooney. Not only is he an accomplished actor with an Academy Award on his mantle, he’s a highly regarded writer and director, with an Oscar for producing under his belt as well. He’s a jack of all trades, and with a new star vehicle out on Friday in Money Monster (which I actually see tomorrow), I thought it was high time to go over his best performances to date. There’s no shortage of quality on Clooney’s permanent record, so finding his top works so far won’t be hard, on top of being a pleasure. He’s had a great career that’s only about at the midway point, so there’s not only tons to look at, but plenty more to come as well! »

Arabian Nights (Miguel Gomes)

In lauding Miguel Gomes‘ three-part, six-and-a-half hour behemoth, it’s perhaps important to consider his background as a critic. Not just in terms of the trilogy’s cinephilic engagement with Rossellini, Alonso, Oliveira, etc.; also in its defiant nature. While it’s easy to assign the trilogy certain humanist and satirical labels from the get-go and just praise these films for following through on them, Gomes continually seeks to mutate and complicate his of age-of-austerity saga. »

SAG-aftra President Ken Howard, 'White Shadow' and '30 Rock' Star, Dies at 71

24 March 2016 12:15 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Ken Howard, the president of SAG-aftra and a veteran character actor in TV and film, has died. He was 71.

Howard was an Emmy and Tony winner who was highly regarded by those in the entertainment community, winning election to become president of the national chapter of the Screen Actors Guild in 2009. In his post, he advocated for a merger with the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, a move that he said would strengthen workers' rights in the industry; after he won reelection in 2011, the popular proposal was approved in 2012. Howard went on to win two more consecutive terms at the helm of the joint union, with his most recent election occurring in 2015.

But aside from his advocacy on behalf of SAG members, Howard was more known to national and worldwide audiences thanks to a range of eclectic acting roles throughout his career. He rose to stardom on the »

George Clooney Remembers Ken Howard’s Help in Early Acting Days

23 March 2016 6:23 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

George Clooney recalled an act of kindness decades ago by the late Ken Howard, who died Wednesday at the age of 71.

“There’s a story about how a young actor met Ken on the Fox lot in 1983 and told him what a fan he was of ‘The White Shadow,'” Clooney said in a tribute he released just hours after news of Howard’s death broke. “Ken asked that actor what he did and the young man said, ‘Well someday I hope to be lucky enough to work with you.'”

Clooney said he told Howard that he had an audition at Paramount — seven miles away — but he wasn’t going to make it in time because all he had was a bike.

“So Ken put his bike in the trunk of his car and dropped him off at Paramount,” Clooney added. “Then Ken just waved goodbye and said good luck, »

Raymond Chandler‘s legendary gumshoe solves it in hard-boiled style – and style is what The Big Sleep is all about.
