Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy Talks ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’; Speaks On Character, CGI Balanced With Practical Effects…
Following the announcement that John Williams will be scoring ‘Star Wars: Episoder VII,’ the film’s Executive producer Kathleen Kennedy has given an update on the production of the film at Star Wars Celebration Europe (quotes via IGN). The new president of Lucasfilm revealed she’s currently dividing her time between Lucasfilm and Bad Robot, where she’s busy having extensive story meetings with director J.J. Abrams and the rest of the writing team, including ‘Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back’ scribe Lawrence Kasdan. And that emphasis on story and character came up repeatedly during yesterday panel, hosted by Warwick Davis. “The story and characters are all we’re talking about right now,” said Kennedy. “We have an amazing team at ILM, who can create fantastic effects, but if we don’t have a great story and characters, the effects mean nothing.”

Set for August 2nd in the US and August 16th in the UK, ’2 Guns’ co-stars Paula Patton, James Marsden and Edward James Olmos.
Academy Award® winner Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg lead an all-star cast in 2 Guns, an explosive action film that tracks two operatives from competing bureaus who are forced on the run together.

Tracking-Board are reporting that Christian Bale is in talks to play the lead role in Todd Haynes’ drama, ‘Act Of God.’ Written by Haynes and Jon Raymond, the film centers on a Kansas man who speaks out against local government after a devastating tornado, becoming a national figure in the process.

The Oscar-winner has several anticipated projects lined up, including a re-teaming with ‘The Fighter’ director David O. Russell in ‘American Hustle’ and roles in Scott Cooper’s revenge thriller ‘Out of the Furnace’ and Terrence Malick’s ‘Knight of Cups.’ Christian Bale previously worked with Todd Haynes on ‘Velvet Goldmine’ and ‘I’m Not There.’ Haynes is currently on pre-production on ‘Carol,’ which stars Mia Wasikowska and Cate Blanchett.
