Felicity Jones To Star In The Star Wars Stand-Alone Film

After a series of hush-hush readings and tests, Lucasfilm and Disney have zeroed in on Oscar-nominated actress Felicity Jones for the female lead in the Star Wars stand-alone film. Jones is now in talks to star in the project, which Gareth Edwards is directing and Chris Weitz — who was just hired last week — is writing. Weitz is replacing Gary Whitta, who penned the first draft. Actresses were meeting, reading and testing last week in Los Angeles for the role, with Tatiana Maslany and Rooney Mara among those in the mix. The secrecy surrounding the project is thicker than the mists of Dagobah, and it is even unclear which character the stand-alone is focusing on. Sources say that Aaron Paul and Edgar Ramirez are on the interest list for the male lead. Disney had no comment. The movie has a release date of Dec. 16, 2016. Jones is currently making the awards season rounds for The Theory of Everything, for which she snagged a best actress Oscar nomination for her portraya

Chris Weitz To Rewrite Cinderella

Chris Weitz is in negotiations to rewrite Cinderella , Disney’s live action take on the classic fairy tale that has Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go) attached to direct. Simon Kinberg is producing. The Cinderella project was first set up at Disney in May 2010 in the wake of the studio’s success with Alice in Wonderland , the live-action adaptation of the Lewis C. Carroll book that starred Johnny Depp. Devil Wear Prada scribe Aline Brosh McKenna was behind the pitch and wrote the initial draft. Romanek came on board in August 2011. No stars currently are attached. The take and the storyline of the re-imagining are being kept under wraps but Weitz has proven himself adept at writing and directing a range of material, from character-based comedies to fantasies to dramas. Weitz shared on Oscar nomination with his brother Paul Weitz and Peter Hedges for adapting About a Boy, the coming-of-age dramedy that starred Hugh Grant. He also wrote and directed The Golden Compass, the big-bud

Twilight Eclipse Teaser Trailer

Twilight Eclipse Teaser Trailer Here is your first look at the upcoming Twilight film Eclipse, I know it's only a teaser, but I can hear all the ladies going crazy. Eclipse is the third installment of the Twilight film series, based on Stephenie Meyer's novel of the same name. The film is tentatively scheduled for release on June 30, 2010.It will follow 2008's Twilight and 2009's New Moon. Summit Entertainment officially greenlit the film in February 2009.Because New Moon director Chris Weitz will be in post-production for New Moon, which will be released only seven months before Eclipse, when Eclipse begins shooting, he will not be directing the third film. The film will be directed by David Slade. "As Seattle is ravaged by a string of mysterious killings and a malicious vampire (Victoria) continues her quest for revenge, Bella once again finds herself surrounded by danger. In the midst of it all, she is forced to choose between her love for Edward and her

Twilight's Breaking DawnTo Begin Filming In 2010

Twilight's Breaking DawnTo Begin Filming In 2010 It's been one of the biggest questions surrounding Summit Entertainment's uber-successful "Twilight" franchise(apart, of course, from whether stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson really are a couple off-screen) -- just how the producers are going to manage to pull off a big-screen adaptation of "Breaking Dawn." The fourth book in Stephenie Meyer's juggernaut of a young adult fiction series about the epic love affair between high school student Bella Swan and her good-guy vampire beau Edward Cullen has plenty of heft, clocking in at upward of 750 pages, but it also has the distinction of being the most controversial entry in the saga. When it was released in August 2008, fan reaction was intense and divided with some "Twi-hards" expressing confusion and dismay over a plot that involved *SPOILER ALERT* a recently graduated 19-year-old Bella giving birth to a half-human/half-vamp daug

Chris Weitz To Direct "The Gardener"

Chris Weitz To Direct "The Gardener" Sorry Twilight Fans Chris Weitz, riding high on the mammoth success of New Moon, certainly can't be accused of resting on his laurels. No sooner had the printer ink dried on his record-breaking box-office take for the Twilight sequel than he was sat straight back down again in the deal-making chair at the films' studio, Summit Entertainment, where he was signing on the dotted line for his next project, "The Gardener". And sorry to disappoint you Twi-hards, but there's nary a mopey supernatural teen in sight. This will mark a considerable change of pace from Weitz's last two films (before New Moon, he was put through the ringer on visual effects Oscar-winning The Golden Compass), involving as it does... well, a gardener. A Mexican gardener, to be specific, who according to Variety, lives in Los Angeles and takes measures to protect his son. At this point we don't even know if this is a thriller, drama, comed

Chris Weitz Talks Twilight New Moon

Chris Weitz Talks Twilight New Moon The Hollywood Reporter got a hold of Chris Weitz the Man behind the upcoming " Twilight New Moon " film and also The man behind "American Pie", and asked him a few questions. Why did you want to do a "Twilight" movie? The tonality of the movie, which has a lot to do with heartbreak and longing, depression and reunion and ecstasy -- these were emotions that struck a chord in me. I really loved the cast; Kristen (Stewart) and Rob (Pattinson) both are exceptionally talented. And I wanted to get my hand back in the game. There were a lot of things in this movie that I knew how to do: A combination of telling a character-based story but also handling special effects and working with young actors. How much did you interact with Stephenie Meyer? A lot; we've had a real good collaboration. Crucially, she approved me as director, and she didn't have to. We had some discussions that were very important -- my convi
