To No One’s Surprise, John Williams Will Score ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

As expected, John Williams will be returning to a galaxy far, far away.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy confirmed on Saturday that the beloved composer will score Star Wars: Episode VII. The announcement was made at a Star Wars fan event in Germany.

According to Williams, who has scored all six existing Star Wars films and has five Academy Awards to his name, fans can expect more of the same sounds in the new J.J. Abrams directed film.

“Of course I haven’t seen the script, the story is still unknown to me,” Williams says in a video attached to the official announcement. “But I can’t imagine there will not be some references to the existing stories that we know that would necessitate and make appropriate the use of some of the earlier themes.”

This information is really music to Star Wars fans’ ears, after a week that included this casting rumor.

Star Wars: Episode VII is slated for a 2015 release.

Lucy Liu Gets $12K A Month For This Stunning L.A. Sanctuary

Lucy Liu Rents Out L.A. Pad

It doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to know Lucy Liu is sitting pretty… on a good real estate investment, that is.

The Elementary actress, 44, who films the hit CBS show in NYC as Holmes’ trusty sidekick Watson, is raking in a sizable chunk of monthly dough after recently renting out her L.A. abode in the hills of Studio City, Calif. for $12,000, Celebuzz has learned.

And the private hideaway is California living at its finest, complete with a feeling of serenity and a true escape from the city.

The stunning 4-bedroom, 5-bath wooded oasis, which she purchased in 2004, is over 4,000 square feet and filled with Liu’s impeccable designer taste and modern furnishings that compliment the Craftsman architecture.

One feature every SoCal home must have is pool access and plenty of natural sunlight – and this retreat has it in spades. Both the master suite and media room open onto the sparkling pool and patio where you’ll also find a cabana perfect for entertaining.

And that’s not all. There’s a chef’s kitchen, sitting room with its own fireplace, sunroom that can moonlight as a gym, windows galore, and one-of-a-kind treetop views. Not to mention, there are three additional bedrooms and if you don’t want to work out at home, you don’t have to. Liu’s sanctuary is just steps away from L.A.’s famous Fryman Canyon hiking trails.

Take a tour of Lucy Liu’s L.A. sanctuary in the CB! gallery above.

James Cameron: ‘Avatar’ Franchise Will Now Have Three Sequels

2018 is a long time from now, but chances are you’ll be lining up at your local movie theater to watch the third Avatar sequel.

That’s right. 20th Century Fox and James Cameron announced on Thursday that there will now be three, not two, sequels to the 2009 blockbuster. [via ComingSoon.net]

The first sequel is due in theaters December 2016, with the second and third to arrive in December 2017 and December 2018, respectively.

Cameron has employed the genius of several big time writers for the screenplays, including Josh Friedman (War of the Worlds), Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Jurassic Park IV) and Shane Salerno (Savages).

“Building upon the world we created with Avatar has been a rare and incredibly rewarding experience,” Cameron said in a statement.

“In writing the new films, I’ve come to realize that Avatar‘s world, story and characters have become even richer than I anticipated, and it became apparent that two films would not be enough to capture everything I wanted to put on screen.”

Avatar currently stands as the highest-grossing film of all time, thanks to some $2.78 billion in worldwide ticket sales. The previous record was held by Cameron’s other blockbuster, Titanic, which grossed $2.19 billion in 1997. The Avengers‘ 2012 run landed the Marvel film in third place with $1.51 billion.

Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana and Sigourney Weaver are all expected to reprise their roles in the Avatar sequels.

How to Get Star-Struck and Remain Totally Adorable, According to Jennifer Lawrence

Not that we need more proof that Jennifer Lawrence is the most down-to-earth, most endearing and grounded celebrity out there, but we couldn’t pass on the Oscar winner’s latest meet-and-greet with a fellow famous person.

J-Law lost her sh*t when she ran into Jeff Bridges last weekend during an Extra interview at Comic-Con in San Diego. Of course, the camera gods worked their magic so that the rest of us could gush in the adorableness that is Jennifer Lawrence giggling like a fangirl and apologizing to The Dude.

(Skip to 2:30 for the golden moment).

Of course, this isn’t the first time Lawrence, 22, has lost it over meeting someone in Hollywood. Remember when Jack Nicholson briefly joined her at a post-Academy Awards interview, and well, flirted with her?

To conclude, here’s how to react when meeting celebrities, according to Jennifer Lawrence.

1. Pretend to run away. (This is how they’ll notice you).

2. Praise them. Make them feel like the coolest person in the room.

3. Giggle. A lot.

4. Use gigantic facial expressions.

5. Act totally surprised, even if you’re a fellow famous person.

Never change, J-Law, never change.

Melissa McCarthy in Talks for Another Paul Feig Movie

Melissa McCarthy and Paul Feig are looking to team up again for

This latest bit of shocking news coming to you from The Wrap which reports Melissa McCarthy is in talks to star in Paul Feig‘s upcoming female spy comedy Susan Cooper. Feig has previously directed McCarthy in Bridesmaids and The Heat. Susan Cooper is apparently being developed as a female James Bond, in that it, too, would be a franchise, but funny. It is not, though, intended to be a spy movie spoof.

Though unsurprising, McCarthy is still an good choice. She’s an incredibly talented physical comedian who clearly works well with Feig. The only thing holding up the official deal is McCarthy’s Mike & Molly schedule. That show is still on?

Will Smith In Talks For ‘Independence Day’ Sequel

Will Smith

Will Smith is reportedly considering starring in the “Independence Day” sequel. He played U.S. Marine Corps pilot Captain Steven Hiller in the 1996 sci-fi film.

Director Roland Emmerich told Digital Spy.com: “I sometimes say no, Will Smith will not be in it because he didn’t want to do it at first. Now we have a meeting planned, we want to talk about it again. Anything can happen.”

Emmerich wanted to cast some familiar faces from the original movie in the sequel, but prior to the release of Smith’s latest film “After Earth” Emmerich said the actor was “too expensive” to employ.

The director previously said: “Will Smith can not come back because he’s too expensive, but he’d also be too much of a marquee name.

“We have like maybe half of the people that you know would know from the first film (in the script) and the other half people who are new.”

Bill Pullman, who played President Thomas J. Whitmore, and Jeff Goldblum, who was computer expert David Levinson, are returning for the sequel.

“Independence Day” made $800 million worldwide in 1996. Smith’s “After Earth,” released in May 2013, made a disappointing $243 million internationally.
