New ‘Star Wars’ Film to Be Directed by Zack Snyder?

We've heard rumors that there would be a point where we could see multiple 'Star Wars' films in a single year, much like what Marvel is doing with their superhero universe. What would that mean outside of 'Star Wars: Episode 7' and its sequels we didn't really know but now we've got a much better idea of Disney's plans. Director Zack Snyder ('Man of Steel') is developing a 'Star Wars' spinoff that would be loosely based on 'The Seven Samurai' but with Jedi.

If Darth Vader Had Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Voice [VIDEO]

I honestly don't think Darth Vader would have been nearly as menacing if he didn't have James Earl Jone's voice. Someone, just for fun, decided to take out his voice and put in clips of Arnold from his various movies. I don't know, I think it kind of works!

‘Star Wars Episode 7′ – Did J.J. Abrams Turn Down the Directing Job?

The question of who will direct the next 'Star Wars' still lingers quite maddeningly; while we would ideally be compiling a shortlist of contenders, we mostly collate who has expressed disinterest or denied involvement. One of those names is J.J. Abrams, who weeks ago stated in no uncertain terms that he didn't want the massive undertaking.

But did you know that he was evidently offered the job? A few choice quotes from the 'Star Trek' director indicates that he could have been the captain of two different space sagas. Jump after the break to learn more.

Petition to Build Death Star Gaining Steam

On the White House's website there is a "We The People" section, which allows citizens to "petition the Obama Administration to take action on a range of important issues facing our country." If any submitted petition gets 25,000 E-signatures, then the White House will review the proposal.

Our favorite of these petitions this month has to be from Colorado man “John D" who, as we reported last week, wants the government to secure resources and funding to begin the construction of a Death Star by 2016.

‘Star Wars’ Writers Actually Working on Spin-Offs; Is Lucasfilm Taking a Cue from Marvel?

'Star Wars' has entered a brave new world since its acquisition by Disney last month; it appears as though every day sheds a little more light on the fast-tracked remodeling of the Lucasfilm property. Most recently we learned that 'Empire Strikes Back' scribe Lawrence Kasdan is allegedly making a long-awaited return to the franchise; joining the cause as well is 'X-Men: The Last Stand' writer Simon Kinberg. The thinking at the time of that news was that Disney and Lucasfilm had hired the screenwriters to commence work on Star Wars: Episodes 8 and 9, but a new report suggests something a bit more ambitious may be at play...

‘Star Wars Episode 7′: Did Jason Flemyng Spill the Beans on Who’s Directing?

Take this for what it's worth: Actor Jason Flemyng, longtime Matthew Vaughn collaborator, may have spilled the beans on who's directing 'Star Wars Episode 7' -- that being Vaughn, obviously.

If the internet implodes on itself, it's going to be because of 'Star Wars.' Today's latest news: That they've approached Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kindberg to write and produce Episodes 8 and 9.

‘Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith 3D’ Release Now Fending Off ‘Attack of the Clones 3D’

As we revealed back in August, 20th Century Fox altered its original distribution plan for the 'Star Wars' 3D re-releases -- from dishing one out annually to giving them back-to-back releases -- with 'Attack of the Clones' and 'Revenge of the Sith' separated by a mere handful of weeks in late 2013.

Well, that has changed once again, as the studio has moved 'Sith' up; now it opens only two weeks after 'Attack of the Clones.' Find out the exact dates after the break.
