Star Wars 8 Director Shares New Set Photos, Shoot Halfway Done

28 April 2016 5:58 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Before the debut of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in theaters, it was revealed that Disney plans on releasing a new Star Wars movie every year, indefinitely. Fans will get to see the first spinoff Rogue One: A Star Wars Story on December 16 of this year, with Star Wars: Episode VIII following on December 15, 2017. Production started on Star Wars: Episode VIII in February, and today marks a very special day in the filming process, with director Rian Johnson revealing two new photos from the set, along with news that production is halfway complete.

The photos don't reveal too much, with an unspecified crew member using a microfiber sham to clean off the cockpit of what appears to be an X-Wing ship in one image, while cleaning off a control panel in another. We don't get a great look at the actor who is in the cockpit of the X-Wing. This »

Tyler Perry Taps Jim & Brian Kehoe to Direct ‘Top of the Food Chain’ (Exclusive)

27 April 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Tyler Perry’s 34th Street Films has tapped Black List scribes Jim Kehoe & Brian Kehoe to direct its R-rated action-comedy script “Top of the Food Chain.”

The script, penned by the Kehoes, is described as “City Slickers” meets “The Revenant” and follows a group of suburban men who head to the isolated wilderness to spice up their pedestrian lives, but soon realize how ill-equipped they are when they find themselves being hunted by a massive predatory bear.

Perry, Ozzie Areu and Matt Moore will produce “Top of the Food Chain” for 34th Street Films with David Kang, producer of “The Comments” and the recent viral short, “Power/Rangers.” Chris Cowles of Dmg Entertainment will also produce and Dmg’s Chris Fenton and Dan Mintz will executive produce.

The film was originally purchased as a pitch by 34th Street, which subsequently teamed up on the project with Dmg. Dmg’s films »

Noah Segan Joins Next "Star Wars" Cast

21 April 2016 9:08 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Actor Noah Segan has joined the cast of Rian Johnson's "Star Wars: Episode VIII" for Disney and LucasFilm says Birth.Movies.Death. Production on the film kicked off in February.

Segan, whose role is being kept under wraps for now, joins newcomers to the series including Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran.

Segan is something of a good luck charm for Johnson, having appeared in all three of his previous films - "Brick," "The Brothers Bloom" and "Looper" along with the acclaimed "Breaking Bad" episode "Ozymandias" which Johnson directed. "Star Wars: Episode VIII" is currently slated to hit cinemas on December 15th 2017.

In related news, IGN has some more from filmmaker J.J. Abrams' Tribeca Film Festival interview this past week during which talk of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" came up.

Abrams revealed that Harrison Ford's injury actually proved a blessing - the several »

Rian Johnson adds Noah Segan to his ‘Star Wars VIII’ cast

21 April 2016 7:04 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Rian Johnson will next year release his biggest feature film to date, the eighth film in that little known Star Wars franchise. The film will be the director’s fourth feature, and follows the success of Brick, Brother’s Bloom and Looper. It’s a bold choice from Disney, but when you have a catalogue of films as strong as Johnson it isn’t really a risk.

Along his journey to the big leagues Johnson has always seemed to stay grounded and often the cast and crew of his films are made up of his closest friends and relatives. His cousin Nathan Johnson has scored his movies whilst his other cousin Zachary Johnson has created some very cool artwork. Johnson also has two actors whom he keeps going back to, having met on the set of Brick Johnson formed a tight bond with both Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Noah Segan. The »

Star Wars 8 Brings in Director Rian Johnson's Lucky Charm

20 April 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When production started on Star Wars: Episode VIII back in February, Disney and LucasFilm released an updated cast list, which included the primary cast from Star Wars: The Force Awakens along with a few franchise newcomers like Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran. Naturally, we knew that more cast members would be confirmed at some point during the production, but, two months into shooting, we haven't seen any official announcements. Today we have word that director Rian Johnson has in fact cast another actor, Noah Segan, although his actual role remains a mystery.

The news comes from Birth.Movies.Death, where Noah Segan actually contributes as a writer at times, aside from his acting work. Those who are familiar with Rian Johnson's work will certainly recognize Noah Segan, since he has starred in all three of his movies, Brick, The Brothers Bloom and Looper. He even »

Rian Johnson Breaking The Mold For Star Wars: Episode VIII

20 April 2016 8:15 AM, PDT | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

With films like Brick and Looper under his belt, fans were naturally very excited to see what Rian Johnson would bring to the Star Wars universe.  According to Lawrence Kasdan and Oscar Isaac, Rian won't disappoint.  "Rian Johnson is a friend of mine — he's going to make some weird thing," said Kasdan to The La Times.  He continued, "If you've seen Rian's work, you know it's not going be like anything that's ever been in Star Wars."   Poe Dameron actor Oscar Isaac added, "I would agree with [Kasdan].  Rian is definitely going to places and investigating things that haven’t really been done in the Star Wars universe. For me, it’s so fun getting to explore different things that I wouldn’t have expected in this universe.  In some ways, it feels like we’re making an independent film.

Oscar Isaac Teases “Different” And “Unexpected” Star Wars: Episode VIII, Compares Rian Johnson’s Sequel To Independent Film

18 April 2016 1:38 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Filming continues apace on the set of Star Wars: Episode VIII, as Disney and Lucasfilm’s mainline installment positions itself to punch it all the way into theaters late next year.

Much of the core cast will be reprising their roles from The Force Awakens, too, including Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac as skilled X-Wing pilot, Poe Dameron, and the latter recently offered up some tantalizing details about the creative process going into Episode VIII.

When speaking to the Los Angeles Times, Isaac heaped praise on Rian Johnson, the Looper and Brick director at the helm for Star Wars: Episode VIII. Since being appointed to direct, the likes of Adam Driver and series stalwart Lawrence Kasdan have pinpointed Johnson’s filmmaking techniques, and how he’s cooking up a Star Wars film unlike anything that’s come before.

Echoing that sentiment, Oscar Isaac went on to say that »

Video Essay Brings Together Wes Anderson's 'The Royal Tenenbaums' & Rian Johnson's 'The Brothers Bloom'

7 April 2016 8:58 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While this morning brought the first trailer for the hotly anticipated “Rouge One: A Star Wars Story,” directed by indie breakout Gareth Edwards, there looms in the future another ‘Star Wars’ film directed by another indie director who hit it big: Rian Johnson. Slated to take over the main ‘Star Wars’ story line from J.J. Abrams, Johnson is quite possibly the most exciting filmmaker that Disney has managed to lock down. His rather limited catalogue is comprised of just three films. But, as anyone familiar with Johnson’s work surely knows, each of those three films is fantastic, original, and completely idiosyncratic, the culmination of which was the excellent “Looper.” Read More: Lawrence Kasdan Says Rian Johnson's 'Episode VIII' Is "Not Going Be Like Anything That's Ever Been In Star Wars" But before “Looper” Johnson made two much smaller flicks: the high school detective noir “Brick” and the crime caper “The Brothers Bloom. »

Star Wars Episode 8: what can we expect from Rian Johnson's film?

6 April 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Director Rian Johnson continues the Star Wars saga next year. DC takes a look at Johnson's earlier films to see what we can expect...

Like or loathe The Force Awakens, there’s no denying that at its heart, it’s very much a Jj Abrams movie. There are aspects of film and TV production that Abrams is generally acknowledged to excel at; likewise, there are elements for which he has repeatedly faced criticism over the years (insert tired, de rigueur joke about lens flare here. If. You. Must.). He’s great at world building - perhaps the most important element in establishing a new Star Wars trilogy is, y’know, making it feel like Star Wars. Sounds simple enough on paper but in a post-prequel world, we all now recognise that this seemingly simple hurdle is actually anything but. That said, Abrams did do an admirable job »

Daniel Radcliffe is a Farting Corpse in Swiss Army Man [Trailer]

4 April 2016 9:24 AM, PDT | | See recent QuietEarth news »

Swim Army Man was something of a hit at Sundance last year. The film starring Harry potter's Daniel Radcliffe, the great Paul Dano (Looper) and 10 Cloverfield Lane's Mary Elizabeth Winstead was picked up by rising star distributor A24 (who have released Ex Machina and The Witch previously).

The first trailer has landed for the film set to release June 17, 2016 and it's as odd, darkly funny and emotional as you might expect (ie. a Sundance movie).


A hopeless man stranded in the wilderness befriends a dead body and together they go on a surreal journey to get home.

Adam Driver Says Rian Johnson Is Cooking Up A “Really Great” Script For Star Wars: Episode VIII

30 March 2016 9:41 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It’s a screenplay seemingly good enough to evoke a pang of regret in J.J. Abrams for passing up the chance to direct and now, as Star Wars: Episode VIII production marches on, Adam Driver has discussed the “really great” script underpinning Disney’s 2017 sequel.

Word comes by way of Entertainment Weekly, who quizzed the Girls actor about the ways in which Episode VIII will differ from box office behemoth The Force Awakens.

More News From The Web

According to Driver, the trailblazing success of The Force Awakens has eased the pressure on both cast and crew, citing that “a lot of that anxiety” that comes with relaunching a dormant IP is effectively gone. Stepping up to the plate in Abrams’ absence – granted, he’ll remain attached as a producer and creative advisor – is Looper filmmaker Rian Johnson, who is ready to bring his own stylistic tendencies to Disney’s galaxy far, »

‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ Director Rian Johnson Hit With Lawsuit by Former Agent

18 March 2016 6:55 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Star Wars: Episode VIII” writer and director Rian Johnson has been sued by his former agent Brian Dreyfuss for a breach of contract. Dreyfuss is claiming that Johnson still owes him 10 percent commission for his “Star Wars” check.

The lawsuit states that Dreyfuss had arranged a meeting between Johnson and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy back in 2012. The suit also states that Johnson wasn’t interested in taking on any project with the company at the time. Although Dreyfuss was fired by Johnson in 2014, a full year before he was signed on to direct “Star Wars: Episode VIII,” his former agent claims that he was cut out of contracts and negotiations. Dreyfuss also claims that Johnson owes him commissions on some of his previous films, like “Looper.”

Producer Ram Bergman, who Dreyfuss says “orchestrated much of Johnson’s business life,” is also a defendant in the lawsuit.

Johnson’s reps could not be reached for comment. »

Anchor Bay Sends Some Tolstoy Your Way When War & Peace Hits DVD/Bluray This May!

16 March 2016 2:52 PM, PDT | | See recent Icons of Fright news »

Let’s just be honest for a second…I’m a sucker for period dramas. No, not films that deal with menstrual issues, but the grandiose parties, attire and sweeping epics that keep you on the edge of your seat. It’s not a horror thing, but hey, I’m the editor in chief of this site, so you’re going to be reading about some of that wonderful stuff from time to time. One period drama that I’ve been dying to see is set to make its DVD/Bluray debut, thanks to the folks at Anchor Bay. BBC’s War & Peace looks like one hell of a time, with everyone from There Will Be Blood/Looper‘s Paul Dano to the original Hannibal Lecter himself, Brian Cox. Ab has set May 10th as the release date for the miniseries adaption of Tolstoy’s classic novel and you better »

Daisy Ridley talks ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’

1 March 2016 5:45 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

It looks like Daisy Ridley may have just revealed that the next Star Wars sequel, Star Wars Episode VIII, will take play immediately after The Force Awakens ends. Spoilers for The Force Awakens follow:

Ridley was speaking with MTV on the red carpet for Sunday night’s Oscars, where she discussed shooting the opening scene of the next film.

“Me and Mark [Hamill] have been rehearsing a lot, and it’s really amazing. When we went back to Skellig [Michael Island] to do the opening of VIII, it was so crazy doing the same scene with a different crew of people. He’s amazing to rehearse with, and I’m very excited to be doing the rest of the stuff… It’s such a good story. Seriously. Luke is so cool in this one. Really.”

Part of the Skellig set was recreated at Pinewood Studios as there’s apparently quite a bit of the next film set there. »

Star Wars: Episode VIII – 8 Things That Definitely Shouldn’t Happen

1 March 2016 2:26 AM, PST | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »


The dust has finally settled on Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Yes, all the hype and fever have pretty much dispersed in their entirety, and now fans of George Lucas’ – ahem, Disney’s – epic space saga await the next Episode in the series – one that will hopefully deliver much of the originality that J.J. Abrams’s “reboot” failed to deliver in what was a throughly entertaining but all too familiar start to a brand new trilogy.

As such, the internet is now awash with theories, speculation and rumours regarding the upcoming sequel, which is set to be written and directed by Looper’s Rian Johnson. Fans have already begun to imagine what they’d like to see in Episode VIII; where Johnson – and Disney – should take the picture, and how, exactly, it should chart Rey’s journey.
