20th Century Fox reached a deal with Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Chappie) for the next Alien movie, according to Vairety. The film was supposed to star Sigourney Weaver, but it is unclear if she is still involved. The untitled film is set to take place years after Prometheus, and will remain separate from Ridley Scott’s Prometheus 2, also with Fox.

Oliver Stone’s (Platoon, JFK) new film about Edward Snowden has added Timothy Olyphant (Justified, Hitman) to join Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception, Looper), Shalaine Woodley (Divergent, The Fault In Our Stars), Melissa Leo (The Fighter, Flight), Tom Wilkinson (The Lone Ranger, Selma), and Zachary Quinto (Star Trek).

Star Wars Episode VII:

Now, before we go any farther I need to advise that this is a HUGE POTENTIAL SPOILER for the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens film due out later this year. Keep in mind that while this is a rumor taken from Making Star Wars, director J.J. Abrams has indicated that some of the rumors about the film are true, so there’s always a chance that this is accurate. Below is the rumor in white font color that will need to be highlighted to prevent those who wish not to know from catching a glimpse. 

The scene involves a hiding Han Solo making himself known to Kylo Renn as Finn, Rey, Chewie, and BB-8 freeze in their tracks. Han confronts Kylo Renn, who then kills Han as Chewie lets out a roar and an assault of laser blasts. Kylo Renn flees, as do Finn, Rey, Chewie, and BB-8. It’s also worth noting that Han is not seen in the film after this event.
