SWDotJ.jpg I’m absolutely thrilled to announce that I’ll be writing a brand new Star Wars novel for Del Rey/Star Wars Books.  The novel will be calledStar Wars: Dawn of the Jedi – INTO THE VOID, and is set in the Dawn of the Jedi era currently being explored by John Ostrander and Jan Duursema in their fantastic comic series.
I’m so excited about the novel, which I’ve already begun writing.  I can’t say much more about it yet, but I’ll release more news and details here as and when I can.  Watch this space!
Can't wait for this one.  If its based on the Dark Horses comic book series we are in for a treat.  I'll keep you updated on any progress.  Here's what Wookieepedia says about Dawn Of The Jedi:

It is set in the earliest days of the Jedi Order, beginning in 36,453 BBY, in a time before the polarization of the light and dark sides of the Force.

In 36,453 BBY, Force-sensitive sentients are brought to the planet Tython on eight Tho Yor Pyramid Ships. The Tython system is colonized over the next ten thousand years. When a mysterious and powerful Force Hound named Xesh arrives on Tython, a series of events is set in motion. Meanwhile, the stretch of the Rakatan Infinite Empire is felt across the galaxy. Dark and light begin to be polarized within the developing Jedi Order.
Just as a bit of trivia Tim Lebbon did the novelisation of Cabin In The Woods.

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.
