LucasFilm NOT Prepping New “Star Wars” Trilogy

Source - http://www.comicbookmovie.com/fansites/becks/news/?a=11265

MarketSaw is reporting that George Lucas and LucasFilm are currently considering a new “Star Wars” trilogy–and that it would be shot in 3-D.

According to the report, Lucas would serve as a producer for the new trilogy and would not take the director’s chair. Among those rumored to be in line for directing duties are Steven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola.

One litmus test will be the success or failure of James Cameron’s upcoming 3-D movie, “Avatar.” If the film catches fire at the box-office, then that could be the impetus for a new “Star Wars” trilogy to go into production.

So, this brings up an interesting question–do we want a new “Star Wars” trilogy?

You can let us know in our poll below. And feel free to tell us what you think in the comments section.

UPDATE: Ain’t It Cool News has contacted LucasFilm. The company stated that it is currently not working on a 3-D version of the films for theaters and that no new “Star Wars” films are under development.

Several other sites have pointed out that this may be a campaign to help ensure the success of “Avatar.”

Star Wars VII Movie Poster - Every End Is A New Beginning

Just saw this Star Wars VII movie poster on Kyle Newman's Facebook feed.  The poster is by Lyndon Berresford and Paul Bateman. 
I am loving this.  Who do you think the two characters are?  Lando and Leia?  Han and Leia's children?

Have you seen other Star Wars VII movie posters?  Let me know.

Did Paul Freeman Accidentally Eat A Fly In Raiders of the Lost Ark?

The Famous Indiana Jones Fly In Belloq's Mouth Scene.  Did It Really Happen? I've always wondered if Paul Freeman unintentionally consumed a fly in this scene in Raiders of the Lost Ark?  It's the scene where Indiana Jones shouts down to Bellosh...I mean Belloq and threatens to blow up the ark.  Did a fly go in his mouth?

I remember watching this scene back in the early eighties and my ten year old mind thought he definitely had a snack while filming.  I recall talking about 'flygate' in my school playground at the time and the general consensus with my friends was that Freeman definitely had a sneaky snack.

Paul Freeman talks about the famous 'fly' scene in an interview with TheIndyExperience.com and settled 'flygate:'

This is a bit of a dicey question so don’t get too upset. (Laughs) A movie’s always got bloopers in it, some have a lot, and some only have three or four. And the most remarkable blooper was right before the opening of the Ark scene.…

Pinewood Studios To Expand To The Usa

BBC News have reported that Pinewood Studios are to expand to the USA.  This is great news for the famous studio that is rich in movie history.


UK film studio Pinewood Shepperton has announced plans to build its first sound stages in the United States. The Pinewood Atlanta complex will be built on 288 acres of land south of Atlanta, Georgia, as a joint venture with a US investment company. Georgia has been among the US states drawing film-making away from Hollywood with tax incentives in recent years. The deal is the latest sign of expansion at Pinewood, the home of the James Bond franchise. Earlier this month it announced a joint venture with a Chinese media group, potentially giving it access to the fast-growing Chinese market.
