Which Director Should Be Attached To Direct Star Wars 7?


Well its only just been announced and already the talk is who should direct Star Wars 7? 

Well the hot favourite is of course Joss Whedon who did a great job with a little known film called The Avengers.  Guillermo Del Toro is another one who's past record with Pan's Labyrinth and Hellboy would make a good choice.  Will this open the door for Spielberg to finally direct a Star Wars movie?  He was linked for a while to The Empire Strikes Back so this may be his second chance at getting into the Star Wars universe.   In favour with Disney at the moment and most likely is Gore Verbinski who directed the Pirates Of The Caribbean movies, Rango and the upcoming Lone Ranger with Johnny Depp.  What about Steve Moffat who wrote the latest Tin-Tin movie, brought us the fabulous Sherlock to our small screens and currently is responsible for the latest Doctor Who?  So is no stranger to Sci-fi.  At the very least he should help with the writing.  Finally there's J.J Abrams.  Wouldn't that a great story that the director of the latest Star Trek movies would also be responsible for the new Star Wars movies?  Whatever happens lets just hope its not Michael Bay.  We don't want over the top explosions with really close up shots so much so you can't see what's going on.


Who do you think will make a great director for the new Star Wars movies?

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.
