‘Star Wars Episode 7’: Carrie Fisher Fuels Rumors of Princess Leia in New Movie

As excitement for the new “Star Wars” trilogy continues to build, there’s one big question that’s on every fan’s mind: will Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and Carrie Fisher reprise their roles in the series? While most agree that the answer is probably “yes,” Disney isn’t talking — but that hasn’t stopped Fisher from dropping hints anyway.

At an appearance last weekend at Calgary Comic Expo, Fisher alluded to Disney executives getting in touch with her — and asking her to shed some weight.

“I like being bought by Disney, because they never wanted to buy me before,” Fisher told the crowd. “I’m glad they are doing a new movie because they are sending a trainer to my house so I can get in really good shape. So I’m really eating a lot of sugar in advance, as you can see. By the time I really get down to it I will have eaten everything.”

Fisher has never been one to shy away from self-deprecation and brutal honesty — see her memoir “Wishful Drinking” or any recent interview for evidence — but the crack about Disney hiring her a trainer certainly indicates that the studio wants her in fighting shape to see some action as Princess Leia in “Star Wars: Episode VII.” And Fisher previously told Palm Beach Illustrated that she would indeed be appearing in the new film, joking that Leia would be “in an intergalactic old folks’ home,” still wearing her iconic “bagel buns and the bikini.”

Fisher isn’t the only one who’s stoked the speculation fires. Hamill has told reporters that the original trio have been in talks with series creator George Lucas for months, while Lucas more or less confirmed to Bloomberg BusinessWeek that the stars were already in final negotiations to reprise their roles.

Now we just have to wait for Disney to make things official — perhaps at Comic-Con in July? May the force be with us until then.

We don’t know how we feel about Disney’s decision to open a whole new set of ‘Star Wars’ films, but there is one thing we do know! They better be including the return of Chewbacca!

In the aftermath of Tobe Hooper’s classic, the townspeople take dramatic action against the Sawyer family. They had long suspected that the family was responsible for several mysterious disappearances and had their suspicions confirmed when a young woman escaped the house. Word of the murders quickly spread, and a vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer stronghold, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family – or so they thought.

Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had.  After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion.

Tom Hiddleston Out, Alexander Skarsgard in for ‘Crow’ Reboot!

We recently posted an article discussing that ‘The Avengers’ star, Tom Hiddleston was up for the role of Eric Draven in the reboot of the 1994 classic, ‘The Crow.’

We have now found that Hiddleston will not be portraying Draven in the remake. Instead, latest news has ‘True Blood’ star, Alexander Skarsgard being discussed as the new potential Draven.

This is what comicbooktherapy.com had to say!

Last week, it was rumored that Thor and Avengers antagonist Tom Hiddleston was up for the title role in the upcoming reboot of The Crow, The casting, while a bit out-of-left-field, was so weird that it may have worked. However, it doesn’t look as though that is happening. Mike Fleming over at Deadline has debunked that news. Apparently, a simple conversation of the idea of having Hiddleston take on the role was blown out of proportion and was reported as fact. He also states that a new actor is in talks for the role.

Alexander Skarsgard, who most folks know from the hit HBO series True Blood, is being discussed. While no formal offer has been made, it sounds as though the role is his if he wants it. Skarsgard has had numerous offers placed in front of him ever since David Yates’ adaptation, in which he was set to star, was dropped due to budget concerns. The film, which has been in the works for a while now, is being directed by F. Javier Gutierrez and will be a complete reboot of the franchise.

The original 1994 film, directed by Alex Proyas, starred the late Brandon Lee who was sadly killed in a horrific accident. The film has since become a fan-favorite for its dark and Gothic feel. There were several sequels, none of which captured the emotion of the first film and continually worsened in quality. Not much is known about Gutierrez’s take on the project, other than it will be a complete reboot.



‘Magic Mike’ Sequel Moving Along

Thanks to Cinema Blend for this great article about the sequel to the hit film, ‘Magic Mike.’

Steven Soderbergh has his Liberace biopic, Behind the Candelabra, coming to HBO in a few weeks, but the director is also prepping his first sequel since Ocean’s 13 … even though he might not be as involved as fans probably hoped.

The director conducted an interview with Pride Source on behalf of Candelabra, where he shares valuable insight into his process and the approach both Michael Douglas and Matt Damon took to their iconic screen roles. Toward the end of the interview, though, Soderbergh talks about a Magic Mike sequel, crediting the overwhelming reception from the gay community for the film’s success. On the progress of the sequel, Soderbergh shares:

We actually just had a meeting about it the other day. It’s getting pretty far along. They’ve got a good idea. There were some stories and events that Channing lived through that we just couldn’t fit in the first one. One of them is a really hilarious and very cinematic idea that we reluctantly didn’t put in the first film, because it was such a big idea you could build a whole film out of it – but we didn’t want to build that film out of it. It’s perfect for this, though.

I want to help [but not direct]. I have some proprietary feelings about it, obviously. I want to make sure it gets done and done well, so we meet every couple of weeks to talk about where it’s going. But it’s gonna be good. It’s a good idea. It’s not a retread. And there will be more time spent with the characters – all of them.

Soderbegrh says the original cast will return, though he will not be in the director’s chair. As many know, the filmmaker has been throwing around the term “retirement,” saying Candelabraand Side Effects likely would be his last movies. However, he back off that in the interview, now stating:

In terms of movies, it’s going to be a break. I don’t know how extended. I’m just taking a break from that specific kind of work for a while to see if I can tear everything down and rebuild it. See if I can come back different.”

So he’s already thinking about what he’ll be like when he comes back? That’s encouraging. No one wants to imagine a world without new Soderbergh films … even if we do have Magic Mike 2 to eventually look forward to.
