Though we're still months away from the release of 'Fast and Furious 7' (which is scheduled to hit theaters July 11, 2014), series star Paul Walker has spoken about Universal's intentions for the franchise, and he seems convinced that there will be an eighth entry in the series.
'Star Wars: Episode 7' has been rumoring the return of original cast members since the project was announced, but as the film is taking a new direction now that J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan have taken over scripting duties, it's possible that the original cast may no longer have a role in the production. Former Jedi Samuel L. Jackson has spoken to Mark Hamill about returning as Luke Skywalker, and revealed that Hamill hasn't spoken to Abrams.
The new 'Need For Speed' trailer is here and provides an extended look at the upcoming adaptation of the classic video game. You can watch the trailer above and then go behind-the-scenes with us and star Aaron Paul, who took us into the film's editing room to give us a closer look at how they pulled off some of the scenes biggest stunts (spoiler alert: no CGI).
Though the franchise was successful under Pierce Brosnan's run, when Daniel Craig became James Bond the series got a new life and a rebooting, with 'Casino Royale' starting just as Bond received his license to kill. The series has done a lot of work to integrate previous Bond lore with its more modern approach (and recently re-introduced Miss Moneypenny), but now it seems the path is clear for Bond's most famous nemesis Blofeld to return to the series.
Considering that 2015 is looking like one of the biggest movie years in the history of cinema, it's surprising that studios aren't as afraid of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' as they were of 'Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.' Currently 'Episode 7' will open December 18, the same day as 'Warcraft,' and now 'Mission: Impossible 5' has announced that they'll be hitting theaters a week later on Christmas Day.
On top of yesterday's news that 'Batman vs. Superman' is possibly looking for a Robin, word has leaked that they may want to get that much closer to the 'Justice League' goalpost by introducing Wonder Woman into the mix, and three actresses are currently in contention for the role.
Though it isn't due out until July 2015, it seems that Zack Snyder's 'Batman vs. Superman' (or whatever they eventually call it) has done some shooting, and is now auditioning people for the film. The latest scoop is that the film might feature Dick Grayson, also known as Robin or Nightwing.
It seems like 'Iron Man' director Jon Favreau needed to lick his wounds after the fiasco that was 'Cowboys and Aliens,' as that film's failure may have led to a number of his follow-ups falling apart (he was once set to direct both 'Magic Kingdom' and 'Jersey Boys'). But after directing the lower budget 'Chef' it looks like he'll be helming a new franchise as he's up for the new adaptation of 'The Jungle Book.'
So much of what's happening with 'Star Wars: Episode 7' should be taken with a grain of salt, but early word was that the film would focus on the children of Luke Skywalker and/or Han Solo and Leia (though expanded universe fiction suggests otherwise, it is unknown if she took his last name, or even if they got married). But the latest casting call suggests that J.J. Abrams and company may be going in a new direction.
