Princess Leia will return for 'Star Wars: Episode 9'

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Apr 9, 2017 11:26 pm

The death late last year of 'Star Wars' star Carrie Fisher devastated fans around the world, and put a spanner in the works for the finale of the franchise which is due to start filming mid this year, for release in 2019. But according to the late star's brother, an agreement has been reached with Disney which will see Princess Leia reprise her role one last time.

According to the NY Daily News, the late actor's brother Todd Fisher confirmed that

both he and Carrie Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd had granted the studio the right to use her likeness for the final 'Star Wars' saga film. "Both of us were like, 'Yes, how do you take her out of it?' And the answer is you don't. She's as much a part of it as anything and I think her presence now is even more powerful than it was, like Obi Wan - when the saber cuts him down he becomes more powerful. I feel like that's what's happened with Carrie. I think the legacy should continue." The current plan is to edit in footage shot for the newest 'Star Wars' films and probably also use some light CG to have her as part of the narrative.

 

Lucasfilm issued a statement late last year confirming they had "no plans to digitally recreate Carrie Fisher's performance as Princess or General Leia Organa."

Schwarzenegger follows Stallone in exiting 'Expendables'

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Apr 6, 2017 1:02 am

Following this week's news that Sylvester Stallone has abandoned the 'Expendables' franchise, Arnold Schwarzenegger has promised that he'll follow Sly out the door.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, the action veteran says that "there is no Expendables without Sly. I would never do the movie without him, no." But even if Sly stays for the upcoming fourth film, that doesn't necessarily mean that he's back in either. Citing his disdain for the third entry, the Austrian Oak says that they'd also have to give him a much better part to even consider it. "The third one, I thought my part was not written well. It was also not playing well in the movie, as far as I was concerned. Maybe other people believed differently. But I didn't believe that I had any value in the movie. I love the franchise, by the way. I think it's a spectacular franchise, The Expendables. I think that Sly has good ideas, what he wants to do with it, and I think if they write a really good script [in] which my part is very well-developed, I would do it. If not, then I won't do it."

 

It looks like 'The Expendables' franchise as we know it is over.

007 producers confident in retaining Daniel Craig

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Apr 5, 2017 1:33 am

After reprising his role as Bond for 2015's poorly-received 'Spectre' during which he proclaimed to journalists that he would "rather break this glass and slash my wrists" than return, discussions have apparently continued with producers who are increasingly confident that he'll be back for one last go around.

According to sources who've spoken to gossip rag Page Six, "Daniel's talks with Barbara [Brocolli] are going in the right direction. They have a script - screenwriting duo Neal Purvis and Robert Wade are writing and they'll go into production as soon as Daniel is ready to commit." Neither Craig, nor Brocooli have spoken on record in recent times, but the quiet is promising.

 

It's no surprise that producers and the studio would be keen to have Craig continue; his last two appearances in 'Skyfall' and 'Spectre' have grossed $2 billion worldwide combined.

Schwarzenegger promises he'll back as 'The Terminator'

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: Apr 4, 2017 4:48 am

Contrary to recent reports which suggested Arnie was finished playing the Terminator (which we refused to report because of their dubious sources), the Austrian Oak has weighed in on the matter and says it's all just "fake news".

Speaking to Fandango, Schwarzenegger confirmed that he'll be back to play the iconic role in the near future.

 

"I don't want to call it, like, fake news, like the president calls it, but I think people just write things - I have no idea why. Just because Paramount doesn't want to pick up the Terminator franchise, you have 15 other studios willing to do it - that doesn't mean the Terminator franchise is finished, right? It just means they are on their way to negotiate with another studio, but I can't give you the details of that. They'll announce that. But, yes, the Terminator franchise is never finished. And remember that after 2018, James Cameron is getting it back, and then it will continue on!"

 

While the original plans for a 'Terminator: Genisys' sequel have been seemingly cancelled, with rights holder David Ellison promising "a bright future" for the series, which will give fans what they "really wanted since T2".
