Last Saturday, we reported that director James Gunn was likely to return for Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Now his co-writer on the original Guardians of the Galaxy, Nicole Perlman, has confirmed that he will be back to write and direct the sequel. While Marvel has not officially announced the news yet, it is expected to come out during this Saturday's big Hall H panel planned by the studio.
Hail to the small screen, baby!
At today's Screen Gems panel at San Diego Comic-Con, director Sam Raimi (Spider-Man) announced that he is working on an Evil Dead TV series with his brother/frequent collaborator Ted Raimi and star Bruce Campbell, though we don't known the capacity of Campbell's role in the potential series.
When asked about the long-gestating sequel to Army of Darkness (AKA Evil Dead 4) last year, Campbell -- who famously played the hero Ash in the original trilogy -- shot down rumors of the project, calling them "Internet BS."
Interest in the property was rekindled with the release of the 2013 reboot, which hasn't been confirmed to be getting a sequel.
Joining Pinewood Studios and Abu Dhabi, the tiny Irish island of Skelling Michael marks the third shooting location for Star Wars: Episode VII.
According to local newspaper Kerry's Eye, shooting will take place at the end of August, and the island will be closed off from the public for three days. Skelling Michael is a UNESCO World Heritage site in the Atlantic Ocean, 7.2 miles of the coast of County Kerry.
Fans speculate that the island's monastery would make for a perfect Jedi academy, run by Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).
Speaking of Luke, actor Mark Hamill appeared at the Guardians of the Galaxy premiere in London, where he was asked by BBC about his return to the franchise in Episode VII, which he calls "unexpected" as he believed that Luke's story had (seemingly) already been told.
