If there's one aspect of these new Star Wars movies that have hard-core fans most excited, it's the selection of visionary directors Disney's hired to bring these stories to life. After J.J. Abrams gets the ball rolling with Star Wars: Episode VII in 2015, we have Josh Trank (Chronicle, Fantastic Four) and Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) tackling solo spin-off movies that may or may not be origin stories following characters like Han Solo, Yoda and/or Boba Fett. Then, circling back to the trilogy of sequels, Rian Johnson (Looper) will helm the follow-up to Abrams' movie, Star Wars: Episode VIII. Know what that list is missing? Dawn of the Planet of the Apes director Matt Reeves. If it isn't already obvious, Disney is paying close attention to those...

J.J. Abrams may be currently working on bringing Star Wars: Episode VII to the big screen, but lately our sights have been set on the films that will come after its December 2015 release. Over the last few months, Disney and Lucasfilm have been signing multiple directors for the various forthcoming Star Wars sequels and spinoff films. They’ve nabbed some pretty great talent too, from Godzilla director Gareth Edwards to Chronicle director Josh Trank. Then there’s Looper helmer Rian Johnson, who will write and direct Episode VIII, and handle scripting duties on Episode IX as well.
According to JediNews, we may have another name to throw into the mix today, as they’re reporting that Doctor Who and Sherlock writer/showrunner Stephen Moffat may have been offered a Star Wars film, presumably Episode IX.
JediNews isn’t sure whether he’ll write, direct, or produce the film, but it »

Star Wars Episode VII - confirmed cast: »
Australian actress Georgina Haig has scored the key role of Queen Elsa of Arendelle, the icy powered character from Disney's "Frozen," in the upcoming fourth season of ABC's "Once Upon a Time". The character was previously teased in the third season finale.
In the series, Elsa has long struggled to control her 'chilling' powers and once unleashed an eternal winter upon her town. Ultimately she realized her bond with younger sister Anna (Elizabeth Lail) helps keeps her powers in check.
Haig has had an interesting career so far starring in Australian films like the horror truck tale "Road Kill" with Twilight's Xavier Samuel and The 100's Bobby Morley, the nihilistic school teen drama "Wasted on the Young" with Chronicle's Alex Russell, the feel good musical "The Sapphires" with Chris O'Dowd, and the upcoming drug smuggling drama "The Mule".
She's probably best known though for her TV work such »

While speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, 20th Century Fox's president of production Emma Watts revealed that the studio's upcoming "Fantastic Four" reboot will have a found-footage feel. "We're making a big bet for 2015 with 'The Fantastic Four' and director Josh Trank," she said. "To me, the key is the originality of the filmmakers and the choices they make. Josh is another really interesting example, who is using the vision he gave us in 'Chronicle' to reinvent a franchise he's loved his whole life." When asked if "Fantastic Four" will have the same found-footage style as "Chronicle," Watts replied: "It's Josh, so it can't not have that feel. That's his talent, that's what he does, and that's what excites him about it." »
While we all know that Josh Trank, director of the giant new "Fantastic Four" movie for Fox, got his start on the relatively smallish found footage thriller "Chronicle," there was still something of an expectation that the new film would have scope and resemble a real-life movie, at least as we traditionally understand them. But not so fast.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter (via Film Drunk), Emma Watts, the president of production at Fox, was asked if the "Fantastic Four" reboot, featuring young whippersnappers like Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Bell (from AMC's sensation "Turn"), would feature the same found footage feel that characterize "Chronicle," Watts responded that, yes, that would be a part of it.
"It's Josh, so it can't not have that feel," Watts said. "That's his talent, that's what he does, and that's what excites him about it. It is a really interesting young cast, »

In another example of why the dead should stay dead comes the new trailer for Jeff Baena's zombie comedy horror 'Life After Beth'. Starring Aubrey Plaza ('Safety Not Guaranteed') and Dane DeHaan ('Chronicle') it tells the tale of love beyond the grave when Beth (played by Plaza) ends up dead before her time only to find herself rise from the dead and try to rekindle things with her ex-boyfriend (DeHaan). Of course rage, violent hunger and new girlfriends all stand in the way of any normal relationship. Anna Kendrick ('Up in the Air'), John C. Reilly, Alia Shawkat ('Arrested Development'), Cheryl Hines ('Curb your Enthusiasm') and Molly Shannon all co-star. Head below to check out the trailer. »
Not too long ago it looked like the rights to the Fantastic Four would revert to Marvel Studios. When Twentieth Century Fox’s hold on Daredevil ran out, it was revealed that they had been offered the chance to keep the Man Without Fear in exchange for giving Marvel Galactus and Silver Surfer.
The thing about the Fantastic Four is that their supporting cast is as valuable as the foursome themselves, and the potential for just the two characters mentioned above in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was huge. However, Fox weren’t keen on keeping Daredevil and instead got to work on rebooting the franchise after two disastrous efforts from Tim Story. Soon after, they turned to Chronicle director Josh Trank and X-Men: Days of Future Past writer Simon Kinberg to bring the Fantastic Four back to the big screen.

Fantastic Four has a found-footage feel, according to a 20th Century Fox executive.
"To me, the key is the originality of the filmmakers and the choices they make. Josh is another really interesting example, who is using the vision he gave us in Chronicle to reinvent a franchise he's loved his whole life.
"It's not that you can't make original ideas - you can, and we did it with Chronicle. The director is the key to not letting superhero movies go stale. That's the truth."
When asked if the film will feature Chronicle's found-footage style, Watts said: "It's Josh, so it can't not have that feel. »
It’s fair to say that 20th Century Fox’s upcoming reboot of The Fantastic Four hasn’t had the smoothest of rides with fans of Marvel’s First Family so far, but the studio certainly has high hopes for the film, having already announced a 2017 release date for The Fantastic Four 2. And now, as cameras roll on the reboot, Fox’s president of production Emma Watts has spoken about director Josh Trank’s vision for the film, as well as seemingly confirming that it will adopt a similar found footage style to that of Chronicle.
“Certainly the audience seems to still be really enjoying it. We’re making a big bet for 2015 with The Fantastic Four and director Josh Trank. To me, the key is the originality of the filmmakers and the choices they make. Josh is another really interesting example, who is using the vision he gave »

The found footage strands of Chronicle might just be making their way into Fantastic Four, Fox confirms...
In just under a year, the reboot of the big screen Fantastic Four series will have been released, and we'll be able to see just how director Josh Trank and his team have done. The film's currently shooting, and 20th Century Fox's president of production, Emma Watts, has been talking about it in a new interview.

(Cbr) After surviving the superhuman drama of "Chronicle," actor Alex Russell is about to become part of an entirely different world. He’s set to star in "Galyntine," the upcoming AMC pilot from "Halt and Catch Fire‘s" Jason Cahill and "The Walking Dead‘s" Greg Nicotero. The show takes place in a post-apocalyptic future in which technology no longer exists, bringing society back to its primal roots. According to Deadline, Russell will play an orphan named Roman who’s “unofficially adopted by his best friend Aethys’ family, and he hopes to marry Aethys’ sister Essyn to make his membership in the family official.” Roman’s hopes and dreams are tanked by “a deeply wounding betrayal” that puts him on a “more dangerous path.” "Galyntine" is under consideration for a 2015 series pickup. »

With "X-Men: Days of Future Past" rolling past $700 million worldwide (the entire film series crossing the $3 billion mark at the same time) and "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" on the horizon, it has been a good summer for 20th Century Fox.
The studio's President of Production Emma Watts has just spoken with THR about their plans for further Marvel Comics adaptations, specifically the "Fantastic Four" reboot due next year and "X-Men: Apocalypse" the year after that.
The hiring of "Chronicle" director Josh Trank for "Fantastic Four" brought with it certain questions, one of them being whether that film's found footage approach to the superhero genre would be employed for 'Fantastic' as well. Watts confirms it:
"It's Josh, so it can't not have that feel. That's his talent, that's what he does, and that's what excites him about it. It is a really interesting young cast, and he is »

Production on 20th Century Fox's The Fantastic Four reboot has been under way for a few months, although there is still very little we know about the story. It's been widely rumored that the plot will be taken from the Ultimate Fantastic Four comics, which features a much younger group of superheroes, mirroring the younger cast that includes Miles Teller (Reed Richards), Michael B. Jordan (Johnny Storm), Kate Mara (Sue Storm) and Jamie Bell (Ben Grimm). 20th Century Fox's production president Emma Watts hinted in a recent interview that the reboot may include found footage elements.

The fantasy-action adventure series is set in a postapocalyptic future without technology where a band of survivors is forced to adapt to isolation and the challenges of their new world.
Russell plays Roman, an orphan who was unofficially adopted by his best friend Aethys’ family. He hopes to marry Aethys’ sister Essyn to make his membership in the family official.
A very public victory appears to cement his status as a future leader of the colony, but a twist of fate (and a betrayal) set him on a different, more dangerous path. Catherine Dent and Charlotte D'Ambroise also star.
