‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ director Rian Johnson on preparing for the sequel

30 July 2014 4:45 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) A few years from now, in this very galaxy, there will be a new director of the flagship "Star Wars" series. Following J.J. Abrams’ work on "Star Wars: Episode VII," director Rian Johnson will step in to steer the franchise forward with "Episode VIII," and possibly even "Episode IX." The "Looper" filmmaker made his first public comments on inheriting the "Star Wars" franchise during an appearance at Comic-Con International, describing the job as a dream come true. “The thought of it made me so completely joyfully happy,” he said, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. “I wanted to play in this world, of literally the first movie my dad put me in the car to see.” Johnson described the current process of working on "Episode VIII" as “kind of like summer camp,” with he and his team preparing by watching movies every night. The director even weighed in on other "Star Wars" topics, »

New Stills From Disney's Into The Woods

30 July 2014 10:32 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

    Into the Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel—all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them. Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady, The Devil Wears Prada, August: Osage County) portrays the Witch who wishes to reverse a curse so that her beauty may be restored. Emily Blunt (Looper, The Young Victoria, The Devil Wears Prada) is the Baker’s Wife, a childless woman who longs to be a mother.

Star Wars: Episode VIII Director Reveals Two Classic Movies That Will Inspire His Film

29 July 2014 4:20 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

If you aren't already excited for Rian Johnson's Star Wars movie, you're in good need of an attitude adjustment. Back in 2005, the young director exploded on the scene with his fantastic debut Brick, and has since brought us stylish and creative thrillers like The Brothers Bloom and Looper - not to mention some of the best episodes of Breaking Bad. Sadly we still have a long time to wait until his vision actually makes its way to theaters, but the filmmaker is already hard at work finding inspiration for what his movie will be. A guest on the 500th episodes of the Filmspotting podcast (via Chicago Sun Times), Johnson explained to the hosts that he can't tell anyone about what he's working on ("I.m really excited about all the things I can.t tell you"), but over the course of the interview he revealed that he and his »

Rian Johnson Jokes About 'Star Wars: Episode VIII' Inspiration

29 July 2014 2:47 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

If you look carefully at J.J. Abrams in his video released last week, in which he teased a new and improved X-Wing, there is a slight tremor in his voice. He reveals very little information, keenly aware of the Sith Lord studio exec’s open hand pointed directly at Abrams’s neck.

So much of the upcoming Star Wars production has been cloaked in secrecy, and that does not look to be changing anytime soon. But at least Rian Johnson — who was recently tapped to direct Episode VIII and oversee Episode IX — is good humored about it.

In a podcast interview for Filmspotting’s 500th episode, set to air this weekend, Johnson assured fans that Lucasfilm did not hire him because of his skills.

Johnson jested:

“I can only assume it was a clerical error, like in the movie Brazil.  There’s a Brian Johnson out there who is really mad. »

‘Star Wars: Episode 8′ Director Rian Johnson Teases His Franchise Plans

29 July 2014 2:43 PM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Going from indie work to a big budget studio franchise is quite the change of pace. Darren Aronofsky recently breached that gap earlier this year with Noah, with directors such as Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) following his example during summer’s blockbuster onslaught. The transition isn’t always easy; the studio system has more checks and balances in place, and is frequently governed by the bottom line, and for some filmmakers, the loss of cherished creative freedom can be a major deal breaker.

But that’s not going to stop Rian Johnson from hopping aboard with Lucasfilm to work on Star Wars Episode VIII. Johnson may be best known for his 2012 film Looper, his third effort following 2008′s The Brothers Bloom and his ...

Star Wars: Episode VIII Director Rian Johnson Teases Overall Direction of the Film

29 July 2014 1:57 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Last month we got the utterly fantastic news that Rian Johnson will be writing and directing Star Wars: Episode VIII, (in addition to crafting a treatment for Star Wars: Episode IX).  Johnson’s Looper is such an incredibly strong film that I have to imagine there will be a certain amount of quality gained from this if he’s allowed a reasonable amount of control over the project.  While details are still thin on Episode VIII (let’s face it, they’re still thin on Episode VII so I wouldn’t expect this to get better anytime soon) this is a sign that Lucasfilm and Disney are at least somewhat concerned with the stewardship of this franchise as a piece of entertainment (in addition to the obvious interest in it as a brand). Now Johnson is beginning to tease out some (admittedly vague) thoughts on the project.  Hit the jump »

Rian Johnson Is Already Revealing Details About 'Star Wars: Episode VIII'

29 July 2014 11:00 AM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

"Star Wars: Episode VII" still feels light years away from its December 2015 release, but that doesn't mean that Rian Johnson, just picked to write and direct its sequel, "Episode VIII," isn't already conducting research for his film.

In an interview taped for the Filmspotting podcast, Johnson chatted about his childhood love of the "Star Wars" movies, revealed the cinematic influences he plans on including in the flick, and discussed his unlikely selection as the newest member of the "Star Wars" filmmakers club.

"The thought of it made me so completely joyfully happy," Johnson said of agreeing to the offer to direct "Episode VIII." "I wanted to to play in this world, of literally the first movie my dad put me in the car to see."

The "Looper" director also joked that with his less-well-known pedigree, it must have been "a clerical error" that saw him land the gig, adding, "There's »

Rian Johnson Sort of Talks Star Wars: Episode VIII

29 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

On Saturday, director Rian Johnson Skyped in to join Filmspotting’s 500th episode. He is in San Francisco, working on Star Wars: Episode VIII — A New Hope for a Good Star Wars Movie (that’s the official subtitle, you hadn’t heard?), and he mostly didn’t say anything about the project, except, “I’m really excited about all the things I can’t tell you.”

While we were all overjoyed when Disney and LucasFilm hired the indie director to helm the second and third films in the new trilogy, it left some people scratching their heads. Before he was hired he seemed uninterested in doing it, so why did he take the job? “The thought of it made me so completely joyfully happy. I wanted to to play in this world, of literally the first movie my dad put me in the car to see,” he said.

And how did he get the job? »

Women Prevailing Despite Sexism in Slowly-Changing Below-the-Line Industry

29 July 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

When Rita Lundin was working as a driver on “Men in Black 3,” the message from her Teamsters coordinator was blunt: We don’t like to work with women.

“He told me he wouldn’t be able to sleep, thinking I wasn’t going to make it to the set and that I wouldn’t be able to do the job,” she says.

It didn’t matter that Lundin, 55, was a third-generation member of the movie industry, and grew up on the sets of films and TV shows, even appearing as an extra on “Gunsmoke” when she was a girl. Nor were her prior credits as a driver — an impressive list that includes “Iron Man” and “The Hangover” — enough proof that she could handle a job that required her to move massive trailers, set up generators and keep the stars’ cushy offscreen homes clean and in shape.

Now the filmmaker has chatted briefly about securing the director’s chair on the follow-up(s) to J.J. AbramsStar Wars: Episode VII during the FilmSpotting Podcast (via Slash Film):

Rian Johnson on landing Star Wars: Episode VIII

28 July 2014 11:21 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Just a brief word or two from Rian Johnson, who is developing Star Wars: Episode VIII - and possibly IX - at Lucasfilm...

Disney/Lucasfilm has thus far this year announced three new directors for Star Wars movies. Josh Trank and Gareth Edwards are each going to be doing standalone spin-off films. But it's Looper helmer Rian Johnson who will be picking up from Jj Abrams and putting Star Wars: Episode VIII - and possibly Star Wars: Episode IX - together.

Chatting to the Filmspotting Podcast, Johnson admitted his absolute delight at landing the Star Wars job. "The thought of it made me so completely joyfully happy. I wanted to to play in this world, of literally the first movie my dad put me in the car to see".

Admitting that he's early in the process of making his new film, Johnson is currently hard at work at Lucasfilm, and »

One set, two actors, all dialogue: TV's best 'bottle' episodes

28 July 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Sunday night’s episode of Masters of Sex, titled “Fight,” was one of the series’ best. It stuck the show’s two main characters, Dr. William Masters (Michael Sheen) and his assistant/lover Virginia Johnson (Lizzy Caplan), in a single hotel room and then let them batter out their anxieties and anger through flirtation, role play, and sex, all while an actual boxing match rages on TV.

In TV parlance, episodes like “Fight,” where characters are restricted to a few sets, are often called “bottle episodes”—they’re cheaper to make (you don’t have to build new sets or »
