No Star Wars TV Movies
Wednesday, May 23, 2007 - reddit
A Lucasfilm representative denied rumors started by Fox News' Roger Friedman that George Lucas was planning two TV movies set in the Star Wars universe, but the two planned television series (one CG coming soon, one live-action several years off) are still happening. Of course, denials don't mean it's true.
Sansweet added: "And then George and [Star Wars producer] Rick McCallum were just now starting work on a live-action series. A drama. That will probably be coming out in 2009 or 2010. He is actively at work on both of those. But the CG-animated series is more adult. It has a lot of humor in it. It is very cinematic. We will be talking about that for the first time at the Celebration," he added, referring to the upcoming Star Wars Celebration IV convention taking place in Los Angeles May 24-29.
With the features coming today, I'm going to lean heavily on these link posts. Sorry, there is only so much time in the day.
Topics: Film, Television, Star Wars, Pirates 3, Pirates of the Caribbean, Harry Potter 5, Heroes, Ratings, John McTiernan, Karl Urban, Joost
- Watch interviews with the producers and cast of Pirates 3.
- Or, dig on a review of the film from Variety writer Brian Lowry.
- People are already preemptively defending Pirates 3 from critics reviews, which probably means those negative reviews actually have merit.
- Sci Fi Wire has a few snippets from an interview with Tia Dalma from the film. Why the hell don't they ever post the full interviews?
- People need to stop remaking old zombie movies, even if they star Mena Suvari.
- Potter 5 will debut in Tokyo instead of America, which makes total sense since Japan made the film. Wait, no they didn't..
- Speaking of Potter 5, grab 6 new trailers while they're hot.
- NBC's Heroes fetched $788k per episode from the BBC for the rights to the second season.
- Heroes showrunner Tim Kring wrote about the upcoming limited-edition spinofff Origins on an NBC blog.
- Fox sets a new record for consecutive weekly victories in the ratings war, but that'll all change with Idol about to conclude.
- Martin Scorsese wants to digitally preserve film..for the future.
- Donald Trump looked stupid when he tried to one-up NBC by "quitting" The Apprentice after the show wasn't renewed during the upfronts. Now that it turns out he's still under contract by NBC for the show for at least another year, he looks even more retarded.
- Nobody knows who the hell will direct the next Bond flick. Now there's a franchise that just needs to die.
- Daniel Craig, the last actor to play Bond, is turning into a tubby bastard.
- John McTiernan is doing a new flick with Karl Urban. I don't care what it's about, lots of people are going to die and I'm going to gleefully watch.
- Startup Internet-TV provider Joost has partnered with Hollywood talent agency CAA to secure content. Somehow..
