Now, Bob Iger has let slip a few Han Solo movie story details! During an event at USC, the Disney CEO confirmed that the film will span a seven year stretch, covering Han’s life from 18 to 24. It will showcase how he came into possession of the Millennium Falcon and how he first met Chewbacca.

Talulah Riley Upgraded to Series Regular for Westworld Season 2

 Talulah Riley Upgraded to Series Regular for Westworld Season 2

 Talulah Riley upgraded to series regular for Westworld season 2

Since the show made a huge splash last summer, things have been all quiet on the Westworld front. It’s no surprise really, since it’s not expected to return until 2018. Now, EW brings word that actress Talulah Riley, who played the role of Angela in the first season and appeared in six of the show’s ten episodes, has been upgraded from recurring star to a series regular for the second season.

In the series, Angela started out as one of the hosts that first greeted guests to the park and walked them through the whole process of it all. Later on, however, we see that the park’s creator Robert Ford reassigned her to being one of the lackeys for the mysterious “Wyatt.”

EW notes the character started as “a host whose beatific face welcomed guests to Westworld for decades … Angela will prove to be one of the last faces many guests will ever see.”

Westworld stars Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, James Marsden, Jeffrey Wright, Thandie Newton, Evan Rachel Wood, Tessa Thompson, Sidse Babett Knudsen, Jimmi Simpson, Rodrigo Santoro, Shannon Woodward, Ingrid Bolsø Berdal, Ben Barnes, Simon Quarterman, Angela Sarafyan, Luke Hemsworth and Clifton Collins, Jr.

The series is inspired by the motion picture Westworld, written and directed by Michael Crichton. Westworld is produced by Bad Robot Productions, Jerry Weintraub Productions and Kilter Films in association with Warner Bros. Television. The series is executive produced, written and directed by Jonathan Nolan, executive produced and written by Lisa Joy, and executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Jerry Weintraub, Bryan Burk.

Jake Gyllenhaal and Daniel Espinosa Board The Anarchists vs ISIS

Ninestories’ Jake Gyllenhaal and Riva Marker, in association with Bold Films, have optioned Seth Harp’s Rolling Stone piece The Anarchists vs ISIS. Daniel Espinosa is set to direct the film adaptation, and will produce under his newly-formed production banner BOZI alongside Ninestories’ producers Gyllenhaal and Marker. Bold Films’ Chairman Michel Litvak will also produce and CEO Gary Michael Walters will executive produce. Gyllenhaal is expected to star. This marks the re-teaming of Gyllenhaal and Espinosa, who recently collaborated on Sony’s sci-fi thriller Life, in theaters this Friday.

The Rolling Stone article, written by Seth Harp, tells the true story of a ragtag team of American volunteers, socialists and outcasts, who are fighting alongside the Kurdish militia known as the YPG to beat ISIS in Syria and establish an anarchist collective amid the rubble of war.

Producer Riva Marker said, “Jake and I are thrilled to partner with Daniel Espinosa on Seth Harp’s daring story. Thematically, we’re often attracted to material about the search for identity, especially in a world where it’s become easier to feel less and less connected. Seth’s story is about people who abandon everything that’s familiar as a means to connect in the most brutal of circumstances.” Marker continued, “Daniel is wonderfully collaborative and so passionate about this material. We are eager to start working with a screenwriter together.”

Bold Films’ Chairman Michel Litvak added, “In a very short time under the leadership of Jake and Riva, Ninestories has become an incredibly exciting production company. Their vision for fresh and provocative material coupled with brilliant filmmakers like Daniel Espinosa aligns perfectly with Bold’s mandate.”

The deal was negotiated by Bloom Hergott on behalf of Ninestories and Gyllenhaal, by WME on behalf of Ninestories, Gyllenhaal and Espinosa and by UTA on behalf of Alex Jacobs at Elyse Cheney Associates for Seth Harp. Espinosa is repped by WME and Shelley Browning of Magnolia Entertainment.


Power Rangers Zords: A Guide to Their Mighty Morphin Giant Robots

A History of the Power Rangers Zords

Power Rangers Zords: A guide to their Mighty Morphin’ giant robots

Earlier this week, we took a look at the evolution of the looks of the titular Power Rangers across their countless TV seasons and feature films, but the looks of the Power Rangers themselves aren’t even the most iconic thing about the series – that would be their Zords. Giant robots in the shape of animals, ninjas, constellations, or just regular cars, the Zords are the Power Rangers’ ultimate weapon in fighting evil in the world. In the gallery below, you’ll find a full run down of the various Power Rangers Zords throughout the franchise’s history from the first season to this week’s brand-new movie. Check it out and sound off with your favorite in the below!

Saban’s Power Rangers follows five ordinary high school kids who must become something extraordinary when they learn that their small town of Angel Grove – and the world – is on the verge of being obliterated by an alien threat. Chosen by destiny, our heroes quickly discover that they are the only ones who can save the planet. But to do so they will have to overcome their real-life issues and band together as the Power Rangers before it is too late.

The Power Rangers cast includes Dacre Montgomery (A Few Less Men) as Jason the Red Ranger, RJ Cyler (Me and Earl and the Dying Girl) as Billy the Blue Ranger, Naomi Scott (The 33) as Kimberly the Pink Ranger, Becky G (Empire) as Trini the Yellow Ranger, Ludi Lin (Monster Hunt) as Zack the Black Ranger, with Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live) voicing Alpha 5, Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad,” Godzilla) as Zordon, and Elizabeth Banks as villain Rita Repulsa.

Directed by Dean Israelite (Project Almanac), Power Rangers is written by John Gatins (Kong: Skull Island, Real Steel), Burk Sharpless and Matt Sazama (Dracula Untold), Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (X-Men: First Class, Thor), and Max Landis (Chronicle). Producers are Power Rangers creator Haim Saban, Brian Casentini, Wyck Godfrey, and Marty Bowen (The Twilight Saga, The Fault in Our Stars, The Maze Runner franchise).


The Future of Star Wars: Disney Makes Post-Saga Plans

The future of Star Wars is being planned! What do you want to see form the future of Star Wars?

With the end of saga looming, the future of Star Wars is now being planned

Famously envisioned by George Lucas to span nine saga chapters, the Star Wars saga will reach what was once envisioned as the penultimate chapter later this year with Rian Johnson‘s The Last Jedi. Star Wars fans need not fret, however, as Disney CEO Bob Iger announced during a presentation at USC that the future of Star Wars is currently being planned with an eye towards the next 15 years.

“We’re starting talk about what could happen after Episode IX,” said Iger (via The Hollywood Reporter), “About what could be another decade-and-a-half of Star Wars stories.”

When Iger says “Star Wars stories,” it’s a little unclear if he means that all post Episode IX films will receive the Rogue One subtitle A Star Wars Story or if he’s using a more general term and that we might see some kind of new saga begin.

Iger also reiterated that the recent passing of Carrie Fisher will not impact her role in The Last Jedi.

“We had to deal tragedy at the end of 2016,” he says. “Carrie appears throughout VIII. We are not changing VIII to deal with her passing. Her performance remains as it is in VIII. In Rogue One, we had some digital character. We are not doing that with Carrie.”

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is written and directed by Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper) and continues the storylines introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, welcoming back cast members Mark Hamill, the late Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John BoyegaLupita Nyong’o, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis. New cast members will include Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Academy Award nominee Laura Dern, and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.

The sequel is produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman and executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski. Look for it to hit theaters December 15.
