Rian Johnson and Terry Gilliam talk Episode VIII

rian-johnson-looperAll-but-confirmed Episode VIII writer/director Rian Johnson chatting with fellow filmmaker Terry Gilliam on a podcast recently. Here’s the most interesting bit that’s made it out:

Kathleen and her whole creative team have been so insistent on all the filmmakers they’ve been hiring for these new movies: ‘We want you to take it and turn it into something that you really care about.’ And we’ll see how the process plays out, but so far, that’s a big part of the reason I’m in it. Because that just seems like their attitude towards it. It’s really exciting actually.

Listen to whole thing at The Talkhouse. (UPDATE: Here’s part 2.)

Gilliam requested they bring Frank Oz back, so if you hear a lot of Yoda chatter in the next couple days, this is no doubt why. (via)

James joins the latest Full of Sith. Bryan Young, Amy Ratcliffe and Anakin Young recorded the podcast at Origins, where they chat about the Aaron Allston memorial. Also includes Bryan’s interview with Nick Gillard at Salt Lake City Comic-Con’s FanX.

Roundup: Return of the Jedi rounds out trailer day; David Oyelowo on Episode VII rumors

Flashback. Our second retro Return of the Jedi teaser trailer – or the first, if you don’t count Revenge of the Jedi.

Episode VII: David Oyelowo addresses the Star Wars rumors with E!. “The breaking news is J.J. Abrams is going to give you that breaking news,” he said. But… “I’d go anywhere to work with J.J. Abrams. I think what he did with Star Trek was so extraordinary… And I think what he’ll do with Star Wars will be just as impressive.”

Podcasts. Teresa Delgado and Tricia Barr are the latest on the scene with Fangirls Going Rogue. Their first episode, live now, features The Clone Wars’ Catherine Taber.

Roundup: Episode VII means big bucks at any time of year

Vader at Disneyland. Or Disney World? I can't tell. Disney. The Orlando Business Journal’s Jim Carchidi looks into a few ways that Disney will profit from the Star Wars delay. Because people will go see Star Wars at any time?

Podcasts. There’s a new episode of Full of Sith out today, with Bryan and Bobby talking about the week’s developments.

Auditions. Jedi News talked to one of the ‘Thomas’ hopefuls.

The old boss. George Lucas has lots of big-name San Francisco support for his museum, Mashable reports.

This again. With Star Wars in the news again, I’m surprised it took so long before we got another look at Jedi religion, this time from Details.

Roundup: All this has happened before…

Han Solo is sick of your shit.Rumor roundup. In light of today’s THR report, HuffPo’s Mike Ryan points out that quick turnaround and behind-the-scenes turmoil are nothing new for Star Wars. Meanwhile, Gregory Ellwood and Drew McWeeny at HitFix discuss it, and McWeeny has some wise words for fandom as well. I’m getting pretty sick of all the panic and hand-wringing myself.

Merchandise. I’m a little horrified by this, but at least one Jader was happy to hear that Star Wars Crocs are coming. May the fug be with you?

Audio. James Burns and Mark Newbold of Jedi News are the latest to launch a podcast, RADIO 1138, with the help of the vets at Rebelforce Radio.

Your moment of zen. Or not. A supercut of Harrison Ford being angry at people. Meanwhile, at The Onion
