Episode VII roundup: Being smart about the rumors

SEQUEL TRILOGY RUMORS: Take seriously at your own risk.Practice safe media. Amy Ratcliffe writes about Star Wars rumors (like Monday’s Zack Snyder-fest) and how some movie news sites report them. I am in 100% in agreement with her plee for fans to “use your noodle.”

We report rumors, yes. Do I believe them all? Of course not. Hell, in a previous round, I got so angry at people misusing the term ‘confirmed’ that I wrote a whole post about it. The internet is a crazy place and things spread like wildfire, but please, please please be smart about these things. The rumors aren’t going to be going away any time soon, no matter how hard you wish they would.

Sorry, nerds. Joss Whedon totally wanted to direct Episode VII but, you know, The Avengers 2. And S.H.I.E.L.D. Damn his hard-earned success!

Oh, and… The guy who directed Looper says “it would be very hard to say no to.”. Okay.

“This deal is getting worse all the time.” Harvey Weinstein offered Kathleen Kennedy an Oscar (for Lincoln) if she cast him as a stormtrooper.

    Having really enjoyed all of Rian Johnson’s films, I would not object to him getting the gig at all. Not sure that anyone would ever actually offer it to him, and he’s yet do do anything that I’d really describe as “Star Wars like,” but the dude’s got some good project diversity on display, and he has an eye for small-scale spectacle that I’d like to see him get a chance to blow up some day.
