How is people auditioning for these roles news? It would be more newsworthy if someone didn't audition for Star Wars.

Metallicorphan admits to not auditioning for Star Wars Episode 7

Quote
Gaming Trend regular Metallicorphan has apparently admitted that he has not auditioned for Star Wars Episode 7 which is to be directed by J.J Abrams,this news seems to be of little surprise to the millions of Star Wars fans who have not heard of him in the first place.


Thinking out loud to his Computer Monitor just a few seconds ago Metallicorphan had this to say:

"Well,lets face it,its beneath me and on another note I want to watch it not star in it!!"

Metallicorphan also admits that he is holding out for a bigger and better film

"I am still waiting for a phone call on the new Pee Wee movie...bastards!!"

Well, Lucas did say that he was going to do exactly this when he retired. He's best when all he's doing is world building and consulting anyway. It's the dialogue and comedy he sucks at.

Harrison Ford has not decided yet whether he will be in Star Wars Episode 7


Quote
Speaking to Graham Norton as his chat show returns to BBC One, the Ender’s Game star revealed he had ‘not quite made the choice’ over whether to reprise the role of Han Solo in JJ Abrams’ film, which is due to begin shooting in the UK early next year.

His comments echo those made on previous occasions, when he told USA Today he had ‘nothing to say about that’ when asked if he might return to the franchise – as well as hesitating over the subject on Jimmy Kimmel Live.






But he would do Indy 5 "in a New York minute"


Quote
He also said that he did not rule out the possibility of bringing Indiana Jones back to the screen for a fifth adventure, in spite of his advancing years.

‘I would do it in a New York minute, yes,’ Ford revealed. ‘I don’t think there is any barrier to Indiana Jones being an old fart.

‘I’m old enough that we don’t need (Sean) Connery any more,’ he added. ‘I’m old enough to play my own father!’

+1. I'm a pretty big fan of his stuff.

I think it's obvious Arndt was booted because he kept scratching out the "lens flare" notations Abrams was making to the script.

I speculated the idea was Arndt was writing the actual script, and Kasan and JJ were working on story, plot points, lense flare and female cast members stripping to their skivvies for no reason.  Fabulous

While I'm a huge fan of the Kasdan who scripted The Empire Strikes Back and Raiders of the Lost Ark (though neither film is word for word what he wrote, and Kasdan often complained about that) and the 1985 western Silverado, I'm not sure the now 64 year old guy who scripted The Bodyguard, the bloated Wyatt Earp, and The Accidental Tourist screams out that he's still "got it" to script a snappy Star Wars movie.

While I hope he can turn the clock back 35 years, lets remember the 1997 era George Lucas seemed to no longer have the grasp of memorable characters and cool dialogue that he did when he was 20 some odd years younger. I think most of the time when we expect our idols to do the same things at age 60-70 that they did at 30-40, we end up disappointed because people change, as do writers, directors, musicians, game developers etc.

That's my Deep Melancholy Thought for the day.  icon_smile Still, I get it. It totally makes sense to draft the screenwriter who had a grasp and understanding of those classic SW characters to do a new film with them. At least on paper...

They want to lay off the politics for the new trilogy,the prequel trilogy (Ep 1 especially)got bogged right down with all the Trade Federation snorefest...if you are going to have politics in it,do it like Episode IV,keep it short,no puppets or CGI explaining the boring stuff,and get Peter Cushing* to explain it

He never had those things. He had the grand ideas that form the universe Star Wars takes place in (and this has always been his greatest strength), but the characters and dialogue came out the way they did because Lucas had people (most notably his wife) to rein him in and fix his stuff. In 1997 he was surrounded by yes-men, which is the last thing he needed.
