The new Star Wars has its first villain

If you watch Girls then you probably know Adam Driver. You've probably never thought that he should be the villain in a massive science fiction space opera, but now he is. Variety is reporting that the actor is close to ...

Karl Urban says Dredd 2 conversations happening

OK, OK. Let's all just settle down. Just because Karl Urban says that talks about a sequel to the insanely awesome Dredd are actually occurring does not mean anything will come of it. In fact, the chances are nothing wil...

Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles sure look rebooted alright photo
Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles sure look rebooted alright
by Michael Jordan

Thanks to a few leaks springing up around the Internet, we've got a good (but completely unofficial) look at what Michael Bay's upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot might look like. While none of this is confirmed, the leaked images look awfully close to that Halloween costume leaked a few days back. 

The accompanying poster looks more finalized than anything else, too. I've compiled the images and poster for you along with some thoughts regarding these designs all in a nice video for your convenience. What do you think of the designs? Are you ready for Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles hitting sometime this year?

Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles might look super ugly

I'm not the hugest fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but I understand the very thought of Michael Bay going through a franchise I enjoy and possibly mucking up the whole thing for everybody. And even if I'll stick by M...

Rumor: David S. Goyer pitching a JGL Sandman film photo
Rumor: David S. Goyer pitching a JGL Sandman film
by Matthew Razak

Where there's a whole bunch of names you should be excited to see together. David S. Goyer, who wrote the new Batman trilogy and Man of Steel, is pitching a new adaptation of Neil Gayman's graphic novel series Sandman starring Joseph Gordon Levitt. Warner Bros. is evidently very receptive to his pitch, which is good news for the property, which has up until now languished in development hell.

Goyer obviously has plenty of credibility with the studio after raking them in money on his other comic book flicks, and having Levitt attached to play the lead of Morpheus, the personification of dreams, could only make that more exciting. However, this is very early days and we've been hearing crap about a Sandman movie for years that have never come to fruition. Now is the time, though. With comic book films so huge and someone like Goyer pushing it this could actually happen.

What do you think? Sure it's awesome that it would happen, but for those who weren't a fan of Goyer's Superman this could be very worrisome.

Rumor: Chiwetel Ejiofor for Star Wars Ep. VII?

My life has been lived in semi-constant agony in the years since the Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street movies came out, due in no small part to the fact that there's been nary a word about sequels. In fact, if I r...

Rumor: Star Wars Episode VII character details photo
Rumor: Star Wars Episode VII character details
by Logan Otremba

I will like to ensure everyone that I am not spoiling Episode VII. This is just a casting breakdown of different characters for the movie. I would also like to say that this very well could be correct, but it may very well just be a rumor too.

With that in mind, Bleeding Cool reports that they have 100% confirmed that these casting breakdowns for the next Star Wars movie are verified to be lead characters, and that open casting has started today in the United Kingdom. The order in which the casting is set in is not necessarily going to be billed in that order. So put down your pitchforks for the time being.

Here's the list as follows:

Late-teen female, independent, good sense of humour, fit.

Young twenty-something male, witty and smart, fit but not traditionally good looking.

A late twentysomething male, fit, handsome and confident.

Seventy-something male, with strong opinions and tough demeanour. Also doesn’ t need to be particularly fit.

A second young female, also late teens, tough, smart and fit.

Forty something male, fit, military type.

Thirtysomething male, intellectual. Apparently doesn’t need to be fit.

There is a demand for younger characters in the movie. It makes me wonder who will be playing the lead role in the movie, perhaps a teenage female? But if this casting list is truly correct, it will be interesting who will be cast for what roles. As long as Disney doesn't pull any stunts and have some Disney Channel star as a lead, things could be interesting.
