Also here's the track "Smee's Plan" by John Williams.

Hook Star Bob Hoskins Dies Age 71 Of Pneumonia

Sad news coming in I'm afraid, as we find out that Bob Hoskins who starred in Steven Spielberg’s Hook and Who Framed Roger Rabbit has died at the age of 71. He was suffering with Pneumonia. The star was nominated for a best actor Oscar in 1987 for crime drama Mona Lisa, in which he starred opposite Sir Michael Caine and Robbie Coltrane. He announced he was retiring from acting in 2012 after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease.

"We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Bob," the actor's wife Linda and children Alex, Sarah, Rosa and Jack said in a statement.

"Bob died peacefully at hospital last night surrounded by family, following a bout of pneumonia.
We are sorry to hear such sad news at the loss of Bob Hoskins.  Our thoughts are with family members and friends.

It looks like Steven Spielberg has found his next job!  According to the official Roald Dahl website, the director will helm the film adaptation of Dahl's classic children's book, The BFG.

Here is the official statement from the website:

Renowned film director Steven Spielberg will direct the new adaptation with Melissa Mathison, who last worked with Spielberg on ET, writing the script. Frank Marshall will produce the film and Michael Siegel and John Madden are on board as executive producers.

Steven Spielberg Talks Jaws In 300th Issue Of Empire Magazine. Remembers Orca Being Chopped Up. @empiremagazine

In the latest episode of Empire magazine they celebrate their 300th issue.  Various well known directors contribute to this months superb movie magazine including Steven Spielberg.  In his article the director opens up his "sharkive" to focus on nine objects that help tell his experience of filming his masterpiece, Jaws.

Some of the items range from an original shooting script of Spielberg's to a tooth from "Bruce."  For each object Spielberg gives us a little story of his time on set or why that item was chosen for shooting.

One of the items in the article is Orca's anchor and the story that goes with it is Spielberg's memory of using the boat that was sitting in the Universal lot after the film had been shot for his "go to" place for anxiety attacks.  Yes really!  Spielberg would periodically come and sit in the boat and not remember the good times filming Jaws but the bad times and how that week could be his last week as a director.
