With a number of rumors swirling around the rebirth of the Order of the Sith Lords and a “Jedi Hunters” collective, Stefan Stankovic has put together this brilliant Sith piece for ‘Star Wars: Episode VII.’ After almost a year of speculation, it was announced earlier this summer that John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’. Reportedly set approximately thirty-five years after ‘Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi’ and the demise of Darth Vader, the plot is said to “center around a trio of young leads, along with characters from the previous installments.”
Columbia Pictures has just set loose this new one-sheet for Antoine Fuqua’s Denzel Washington-lead ‘The Equalizer.’ The film is based on the 1980s TV show that starred Edward Woodward as the title character. In this movie version Washington plays McCall, a former black ops commando who has faked his death to live a quiet life in Boston. When he comes out of his self-imposed retirement to rescue a young girl, Teri (Chloë Grace Moretz), he finds himself face to face with ultra-violent Russian gangsters. As he serves vengeance against those who brutalize the helpless, McCall’s desire for justice is reawakened.
Annapurna Pictures and Rooney Mara have teamed up to option the New York Times bestseller ‘A House in the Sky’ by co-authors Amanda Lindhout and Sara Corbett. The memoir will be developed as a starring vehicle for Mara, who will also serve as a producer alongside Annapurna’s Megan Ellison. Annapurna’s Chelsea Barnard will be the executive overseeing the day-to-day development and production of the project. Mara is perhaps best known for her Academy Award-nominated performance in the David Fincher adaptation of the Steig Larsson trilogy ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.’ She recently wrapped production alongside Cate Blanchett in ‘Carol,’ the adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s romance novel ‘The Price of Salt’ directed by Todd Haynes. She’s currently filming ‘Pan’ where she portrays Tiger Lily in Joe Wright’s origin story of the classic ‘Peter Pan.’

When he survives, he sets out on a treacherous journey to exact revenge on those who betrayed him. Set to commence filming in September, Gonzalez Inarritu and Mark L. Smith co-wrote the script for ‘The Revenant.’ The official synopsis for the book can be read below.
Will Poulter will next be seen in ‘The Maze Runner’ alongside the likes of Dylan O’Brien, Thomas Sangster, Kaya Scodelario, Aml Ameen, Ki Hong Lee, and Blake Cooper. To date, he’s perhaps best known for his roles in ‘Son of Rambow,’ ‘The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,’ ‘Wild Bill’ and ‘We’re the Millers.’
