J.J. Abrams Takes Over the 'Star Wars: Episode VII' Script

We'd heard tale of George Lucas and J.J. Abrams oh-so-frequently collaborating via phone tag on the story for "Star Wars: Episode VII," and we did have to wonder what that meant for the film's poor little underling hired screenwriter Michael Arndt ("Toy Story 3," "Little Miss Sunshine") ... and now we know.

George Lucas Is 'Constantly' Buzzing with J.J. Abrams Over 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

Lucasfilm Ltd. Lucasfilm Ltd.

If J.J. Abrams thought George Lucas would go quietly into the Tatooine desert night just because Disney now owns his studio, he was sadly mistaken. Or happily, depending.

'Cause according to Lucas' son, the creator of all-things-Jedi is still very much in the mix when it comes to developing "Star Wars: Episode VII," the first installment of the spacey franchise that he's not directing himself. Get More »

Ugh, New 'Star Wars' Movies Set to Be Origin Stories

Lucasfilm Ltd. Lucasfilm Ltd.

Back when Disney bought out Lucasfilm with the intention of making "Star Wars: Episode VII" and beyond, the news was met with a heaping pile of skepticism. So much (understandable) vitriol and snark. But then once some of the original castmembers were wrangled back in and J.J. Abrams, giant fanboy-slash-sick director that he is, was tapped to lead the Warsian charge, well, attitudes shifted a bit toward excitement and intrigue.

Today's news might just earn a new hiss or two from the crowd, though. Get More »

Was the 'Ant-Man' Release Pushed Up to Make Room for More Marvel?

Marvel Marvel

Edgar Wright's gonna have to hustle even harder (and most definitely faster) to make that long-awaited "Ant-Man" flick happen on schedule, ya'll, because according to Deadline, Disney and Marvel Studios have now upped the release date for the insectazoid pic from Nov. 6, 2015 to July 31, 2015 — a little more than three months sooner than originally planned.

Considering it took Wright eight freakin' years to nail down the script for his "Ant-Man" (no, seriously, he was tapped for the project back in '06 and just finished the screenplay with Joe Cornish in July-ish), that extra time might be sort of precious to the guy ... So, Marvel must have a pretty good (read: lucrative) reason up-sleeve to make such a schedule shift, riiiiiight?

While rumor has it that Mr. Cumbersbumbers... Benedict Cumberbatch will shortly be heading to a galaxy far far away for J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII" project (cue the broody steam shower clip just because), it actually looks he might just be headed for another great beyond instead. Get More »

'Star Wars: Episode VII' Start Date, Fake Title Revealed?

LucasFilms LucasFilms

We're all looking forward to seeing Disney and J.J. Abrams carrying on various staples of "Star Wars" and a UK fan-site seems to have revealed another example.

Super-fans know that "Return of the Jedi" (originally titled "Revenge of the Jedi," until a very educated super-fan pointed out the philosophical problem with that title) went under the working title "Blue Harvest" back in 1982, to hide the production from the prying eyes of press and people dressed up like Darth Vader. ("Blue Harvest" has since been referenced by Family Guy, The Simpsons, Dark Horse Comics and more.)

And this was before TMZ existed, so imagine the secrecy that is going to be required for "Star Wars Episode VII." It looks like the sneaky working title this time around is going to be "Foodles."

Yes, as in, the Disney themed snack product at the grocery store. Get More »

John Williams Confirmed to Score 'Star Wars: Episode VII'

Lucasfilm Ltd. Lucasfilm Ltd.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" might be flush with new talent behind the lens, but there's at least one constant coming forward from the previous six installments. Composer John Williams — yes, he who devised that infamous d-d-d-dah dah! theme — is officially back in the fold.

Lucasfilm Prez Kathleen Kennedy hit up Germany's "Star Wars" Celebration Europe this weekend and confirmed the news that Williams would be back and presented a nice little prerecorded video of him speaking on the film. Get More »

Duh, Ryan Gosling Won't be in 'Star Wars'

Whoever started this rumor, dude(s), we like your enthusiasm and all but c'mon... Ryan Gosling in a "Star Wars" movie? It's way too absurd to be even remotely believable, in this galaxy or one far, far away.

So, it probably wasn't even necessary for his people to reach out and officially put the big fat kibosh on that line of chatter, though they did. Get More »

Now that Matt Smith's nearing the end of his "Doctor Who" travels, he's ready to launch into another dimension: somewhere far, far away with J.J. Abrams.

Yep, while paying a visit to Comic-Con to say what's up to all the Whovians who made way to San Diego this year, Smith also chatted about his interest in playing a piece in one of those space movie games* Abrams is juggling right about now ... and, hey, the doc knows beggars can't be choosers, so he'd be delighted to be in either "Star Trek 3" movie or "Star Wars: Episode VII."
