Before J.J. Abrams secured the job of kicking off Disney’s Star Wars sequel trilogy, numerous filmmakers were linked with the director’s chair on Star Wars: Episode VII, including David Fincher (Se7en, Fight Club), who has spoken about meeting with Disney and Lucasfilm during a promotional interview for his new film Gone Girl.
“I talked to [Kathleen Kennedy] about it, but I think that it’s a different thing from… I don’t know what Disney-Lucasfilm will be like,” Fincher tells Total Film. “It’s tricky. My favourite is The Empire Strikes Back. If I said, ‘I want to do something more like that,’ then I’m sure the people paying for it would be like, ‘No! You can’t do that! We want it like the other one with all the creatures!’ “I always thought of Star Wars as the story of two slaves [C-3Po and R2-D2] who go from owner to owner, »

Lena Dunham is now going to share the wealth. After catching all sorts of flack for originally planning to let the opening acts on her book tour perform for free ("will perform for Girls cameo"?), the Girls star and creator tweeted today that she had reconsidered, thanks to various "good points" made by...Gawker! The site was the first to call her out in detail, backing up its Wtf argument with a breakdown of how much Dunham earns ($6 million last year, per Forbes) and how much she's exepcted to rake in on her soldout, hipster-tastic tour in honor of her memoir, Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's "Learned."

Reese Witherspoon thinks that Tracy Flick, that eager student politician she played in Alexander Payne’s Election back in 1999, would probably be in charge of the Tea Party today. She revealed that and more in a 73 Questions video for Vogue, which she also covers for October, continuing to make the case, as she did for EW, that she is “a lot of fun to hang out with.”
What are some other things we learned about Witherspoon from this video? Well, she can do a backflip on a trampoline, and the following: She would invite “all the female senators” over if »

At this year's Wondercon in April, Laura chatted to Once Upon A Time showrunners about season 3, the show's characters, and fairy tales...
Warning: contains spoilers for Once Upon A Time season 3.
Once Upon A Time's third season was an epic one which included both an outright evil Peter Pan and a very human Wicked Witch. At this year’s Wondercon in Anaheim, we got to sit down with OUaT’s showrunners Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz and actress Rebecca Mader to discuss to gingers, family, bad motivations, old favourites, and the difference between “evil” and “wicked.”
You have done a great job in taking really good characters and making them not so good and taking bad characters and giving them really justifiable motivations - but not all of your bad characters, right? Pan, we were never really sympathetic to him. Do you want us to view the Wicked Witch sympathetically? »
Remember before Keanu Reeves was a badass in The Matrix he was that doofus in a ’80s comedy about time travel that probably isn’t as good as you remember it? You know, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure! It was totally excellent and featured life lessons to live by like “Be Excellent to Each Other” and “Party On Dudes” as eloquently delivered by Abraham Lincoln in a high school auditorium. Yeah, it was totally excellent and probably ruined your ability to pronounce “Socrates” correctly.
The film was so popular that it also got a sequel and children’s cartoon, and now 23 years in the making, people are still talking about Bill & Ted 3, even though George Carlin is dead and you’re not quite sure what happened to Alex Winter.
Now Winter has revealed additional plot details for the third film to Yahoo, saying the characters will be all-grown up and »

Lena Dunham may be 28 years old, but she's wise beyond her years. To promote her forthcoming memoir, Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's "Learned," the creator and star of HBO's Girls answered fans' questions in a series of 12 YouTube videos. In the clips, Dunham addressed topics ranging from from feminism to how to handle unfunny friends. Asked about how she learned to love the skin she's in, Dunham replied, "I went through all of college dressing like a lunatic, wearing neon and raving around and secretly hating myself. I know it's a really, really complicated thing because you sort of want to project the confidence that you don't have to sort of beat »
It's not always easy being Lena Dunham. As the it-girl actress and Girls creator reveals in her new collection of personal essays, Not That Kind of Girl, she battled severe anxiety and obsessive compulsive disorder as a child - and, she tells People, she still wakes up every day with a certain sense of dread. "It's like, 'Oh, you again?' " says Dunham, 28. "I really love my life, but I've kind of worn anxiety grooves into my brain. It just doesn't always sound good in there." Unhappiness about her body was often part of the mix, despite the ease with »

It’s been just eight months since viewers helped greenlight the pilot with their passionate reviews, and today, the entire first season of Transparent finally makes its much-anticipated debut on Prime Instant Video.
The 10-episode half hour series, which stars Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), Judith Light (Dallas), Gaby Hoffman (Girls), Amy Landecker (Louie) and Jay Duplass (Togetherness), explores family, identity, sex, and love through the story of the Pfeffermans, a Los Angeles family forced to deal with their long-held secrets together.
Critical reception for the series has been overwhelmingly positive, with critics from several major outlets recommending it as the best new fall TV show, including Time and Entertainment Weekly:
“Transparent has the beginnings of a transformative, transcendent, transporting story of a person, a family–and a culture–going through a transformation.” – James Poniewozik, Time
“Beautiful, funny and touching…One of those rare shows that alters the complexion of the landscape with its quality. »
It may be a movie that is shrouded in secrecy, but that hasn’t stopped a plethora of leaks about Star Wars: Episode VII flooding the Internet, including various shots of the Millennium Falcon and X-Wings as well as images of Adam Driver as a rebel pilot. Today’s “leaked image” comes from Indie Revolver (who also posted alleged Stormtrooper and Han Solo concept art) who claim this is an exclusive look at the chrome helmet design for the Stormtroopers. Take a look at the image here…
Update: And here’s a second image…
Along with some alleged concept art featuring a lightsabre battle next to the Millennium Falcon…
The wesbite also claims that they have some new ideas on the plot of the movie, but stress that they would never post rumours as “truth” or “fact”. So make of this what you will.

How much time did he spend in the makeup chair for this?!
The 71-year-old actor poses alongside Allison Williams' Peter in the new publicity shot, wielding his signature hook in his left hand and a sword in his right. And while his costume is beautifully detailed, we cannot look away from that face. How much time did he spend in the makeup chair for this shoot?! Also: how is it going to look on our high definition flat-screens come December?
Pics: Guess Who's Headed to Broadway...
Peter Pan Live airs on December 4 on NBC as a follow-up to last year's highly successful live broadcast of The Sound of Music, starring Carrie Underwood. Williams may not have Underwood's vocal chops, but Girls fans already know that she can carry a tune. Walken, on the other »
The not-so-typical actress and writer, Lena Dunham, has returned to her production roots. She’s answering fan questions and doling out advice on her new web series Ask Lena. The series was created to help promote Dunham’s new book called Not That Kind of Girl, which hits bookstore shelves on September 30. Each episode is short -- none appear to be over 3 minutes -- and covers a pretty hefty topic, like sex, death, anxiety, insecurity, and feminism. In some episodes, she advocates the viewer to purchase her book, but assures if you don’t, she’ll still give you advice “if we run into each other on the streets at night.” This isn’t Dunham’s first bout with web series. Even though she’s more well-known for her HBO series Girls, the writer-actress started producing work for the web back in 2007. Her first series Tight Shots debuted on Nerve. »
