'Star Wars' writer will script Mark Millar's 'Starlight' movie

Further evidence that we are cusping on a space-movie renaissance: Fox has just assigned a writer to work on an adaptation of Starlight, the retro-flavored space-operatic comic book written by Kick-Ass creator Mark Millar. The Starlight miniseries only began its run in March, and wrapped in October, but Fox was developing the film even before the first issue arrived in stores. Fox is also producing the upcoming Millar adaptation Kingsman: The Secret Service. READ FULL STORY

While some unofficial photos of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars Episode VII have been popping up, there hasn’t yet been an official look at Han Solo’s hunka junk … until now. And with it comes the appearance of another famous vehicle, though not one fans may have expected.

Bird experts worry that 'Star Wars' shoot is interrupting breeding

Denizens of the Star Wars galaxy aren’t the best stewards of their environment. The empire once blew up an entire planet (sorry, Alderaan); there’s fan speculation about the fate of the Ewok ecosystem after the second Death Star explodes during Return of the Jedi. (Spoiler: It doesn’t look good.) And let’s not even consider the emissions impact of pod racing.

But as J.J. Abrams and crew prepare to shoot episode VII, it looks like the damage might come closer to home. The Guardian reports that Irish wildlife conservationists have raised concerns about plans to shoot the Star Wars sequel on the remote island of Skellig Michael, citing the possibility that filming will interrupt the breeding patterns of local puffins, peregrine falcons, and guillemots.

'Chronicle' filmmaker Josh Trank directing 'Star Wars' spin-off

Man, this is one crowded galaxy …

While J.J. Abrams toils at Episode VII, launching a whole new trilogy of Star Wars films set three decades after the fall of the Empire and Darth Vader in Return of the Jedi, two other spin-off movies are also in the works.

High-level sources have previously told EW that one will be a story about young Han Solo, while the other will focus on the bounty hunter Boba Fett. Godzilla filmmaker Gareth Edwards is directing one, and now we know who will be handling the other — Chronicle director Josh Trank

We just don’t know who is doing which — or if the deal has been altered further, and we’ll be getting stories from totally new characters in the Star Wars universe. READ FULL STORY

J.J. Abrams would like to wish you a very happy Star Wars Day. Yesterday, May 4, is an important celebration of the Star Wars universe, so chosen because of its inherent punniness: “May the Fourth be with you.”

A homesick Abrams and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan took to the Internet to record a quick YouTube message from London, where the two are still working on the screenplay to Star Wars: Episode VII — The Ballad of Llewyn Davis and the Lost Womp Rat.

In the course of wishing fans a happy Star Wars Day, Abrams mentioned that there’s still more casting to announce. No surprise there, but it remains to be seen if this means some more big names for crucial roles — or if he’s simply referring to Stormtrooper #3 and Leia’s Body Guard. There’s still hope, Billy Dee Williams and Warwick Davis! READ FULL STORY
