Star Wars: Episode VIII to Open December 15, 2017
The release date for the next film in the saga is confirmed.
Today, Disney and Lucasfilm announced that Star Wars: Episode VIII, originally scheduled for release in summer 2017, will now debut on December 15, 2017.
The move follows the extraordinary success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was the first Star Wars movie to premiere outside the traditional summer blockbuster window and smashed numerous records, including biggest domestic and global debuts of all time as well as the biggest domestic second and third weekends, en route to becoming the highest grossing domestic release of all time with over $861.3 million and the third biggest global release ever with $1.886.7 billion.

Ghost in the Shell Casts Michael Pitt as Villain
Michael Pitt will clash with Scarlett Johansson in the live-action (and decidedly Americanized) Ghost in the Shell movie. The film has been off and on in the works for several years at Dreamworks, and has recently been picking up steam.
Rupert Sanders is directing the film, and it's scheduled to release March 31, 2017.
Pitt will play The Laughing Man, THR reports, a character not from the original Ghost in the Shell anime film or manga, but from the later TV series, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex. He's a high-end hacker, and keeps his face (and acts) hidden behind the logo seen above.
Scarlett Johansson is playing the lead role, though it's unclear if they'll be renaming her character, who in the manga and anime films and series is named Motoko Kusanagi, a Japanese operative.

NBC's Taken Prequel Series Finds Its Young Bryan Mills
NBC is moving forward with its Taken prequel series. Now, it has officially cast its young Bryan Mills.
Clive Standen of Vikings will take on the role originally portrayed by Liam Neeson in the film trilogy which also starred LOST alum Maggie Grace and X-Men star Famke Janssen.
The drama is described as a modern-day prequel to the franchise's films. Rather than a capable retired CIA veteran, we'll see Bryan Mills in his early days of his career learning how to gain those skills. Perhaps, down the line, we'll even see how he met Lenore.
Standen's Bryan Mills will begin his adventures as a black ops agent in the elite Emergency Covert Action Team. Homeland's Alexander Cary will write the series and executive produce with Taken writer/producer Luc Besson.
Standen's credits, in addition to 30 episodes as Rollo on Vikings, include the Starz series Camelot and last year's acclaimed film, Everest.

Deadwood star Ian McShane has been cast in Starz’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods.
McShane will play Mr. Wednesday, the mysterious drifter who employs Shadow Moon, played by Ricky Whittle, when Shadow gets out of prison. The duo embark on a cross-country road trip that leads up to a clash between gods old and new.
According to THR, McShane’s Mr. Wednesday is described as “powerful and charismatic — a Casanova of sorts — who is a con man and an incarnation of All-Father Odin, who's traveling America recruiting his fellow forgotten deities to wage an epic battle
against the new American gods.”
McShane has also appeared in American Horror Story, and has a major upcoming role in Game of Thrones. McShane earned a Golden Globe nomination for his performance in the Starz miniseries Pillars of the Earth.
Production on American Gods begins in April. Bryan Fuller and Michael Green are writing the script for the pilot and will serve as showrunners. David Slade will direct.
Gaiman said in a statement, "When you write a beloved character (beloved with, or despite, or because of all his faults) like Mr. Wednesday, you get to watch the Internet trying to cast the role. I've seen a hundred names suggested, but few make me grin like Ian McShane does. I've already been lucky enough to have him in one film (he was bright blue in it, animated, and probably Polish). Now I count myself even luckier: he's made the journey from Lovejoy to American Gods. Yesterday was Super Tuesday. Today is Wonderful Wednesday.”

Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry and Trevor Roth have been named executive producers of the upcoming Star Trek series, joining Alex Kurtzman, Heather Kadin and Bryan Fuller. Roddenberry is the son of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry and the president of Roddenberry Entertainment. Roth is the COO of Roddenberry Entertainment.
“Gene Roddenberry, the Great Bird of the Galaxy, left a finely feathered nest for all who love Star Trek to enjoy,” Bryan Fuller said in a statement. “And it is only fitting that Rod Roddenberry and Roddenberry Entertainment join our new Trek adventure to ensure that his father’s legacy of hope for the future and infinite diversity in infinite combinations runs through our tales as Gene Roddenberry intended.”
Star Trek Rod Roddenberry“Moral dilemmas, human issues, complex characters, and a genuine sense of optimism: These are the cornerstones of Star Trek and are what have made it such an influential and beloved franchise for the last 50 years,” Eugene “Rod” Roddenberry said. “While I will always be humbled by its legacy and the legions of fans who are its guardians, it’s a genuine honor to be joining a team of imaginative and incredibly capable individuals whose endeavor it is to uphold the tenants of Star Trek’s legacy while bringing it to audiences in a new era and on a contemporary platform.”
The new series will launch in the United States with a special preview broadcast on the CBS Television Network in early 2017. The premiere episode and all subsequent first-run episodes will then be available exclusively in the United States on CBS All Access. The series will also be available on television stations and platforms in other countries around the world.

Havok as MacGyver
Hollywood has gone MacGyver mad in the last couple of years, with the film version in development via James Wan evolving into a TV pilot focusing on the younger years of the character famously brought to life in the 1980s by Richard Dean Anderson. Now Lucas Till has landed the role of Angus MacGyver.
The TV series turns back to the clock to find MacGyver in the earliest days of his career, after he's recruited to help a clandestine government organisation stop international crime and disasters. He has a talent for coming up with unorthodox solutions and making use of whatever happens to be around at the time, from paper clips and chewing gum. And he never goes anywhere without his trusty pen knife.
Also new to the cast? Joshua Boone, who will play Gunner, MacGyver's best friend from high school. They join George Eads, playing Lincoln, a conspiracy theorist with more than the usual amount of knowledge.
The pilot has a script from Paul Downs Colaizzo and Brett Mahoney, and will be directed by David Von Ancken. Wan, who had planned to shoot the pilot but is now too busy finishing The Conjuring 2, remains aboard as a producer alongside MacGyver creator Lee David Zlotoff.
Till, who at least has the hair to be able to pull off the classic MacGyver mullet (doubt they'll go quite that far), will next be seen in X-Men: Apocalypse, due here on May 19.

VALERIAN AND THE CITY OF A THOUSAND PLANETS Reveals Its First Images
Valérian and Laureline is certain to stand out among its many fellow comic books to earn big screen adaptation these days. The French series, which began its run in 1967, followed the missions of a fairly classic adventuring duo—the titular spaciotemporal agents—across planets, galaxies, and dimensions. Although you might liken the vast, imaginative exploits of Valérian and Laureline to American fiction’s many intergalactic adventurers, there was always something a little bit stranger and more cerebral—you know, Frencher—about their outings. This gives director Luc Besson plenty of room to go wild in the upcoming film adaptation, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
We catch sight of the expansive imagination inherent to the Valerian story in these first photos from the movie, which debuted over at Entertainment Weekly. Front and center are stars Dane DeHaan—upgraded to “hero” status after playing the heavy in his last comic book film, The Amazing Spider-Man 2—as Valérian, and Cara Delevingne as Laureline. Delevingne will likewise showcase her penchant for villainy in Suicide Squad, in which she plays the DC Comics sorceress Enchantress.
Though otherwise prone to cinematic criminal activity, DeHaan and Delevingne are going pure spacetime heroes in Besson’s picture, and ones charged with protecting the expanses of the unexplored universe to boot.
As much as these images do show us, they really only serve to raise questions. Slight glimpses at pieces of otherworldly technology and backdrops have us wondering where Besson will go with his newest story. The biggest question of the lot, though, has got to be: Who’s behind that big, black, metallic mask? We know that the character in question is an officer named K-Tron, but since most of the supporting players on board are thus far assigned to unknown roles, we haven’t a clue of who’ll be laying down the law in his shoes. Could it be John Goodman? Ethan Hawke? Rihanna? Not jokes—actual possibilities, people.
If you’re intrigued by the photos but need to bone up on your Valérian and Laureline, check back to EW to read their extensive interview with Besson about the project. The film hits theaters July 2017.
