Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Who knows. Jacen could have a romantic interest amongst the ranks of the new film cast. We don't have to have a new romance, though, since Han and Leia would already provide that facet for the story having been together for the past 30 years and having children, but knowing Hollywood they'll want to give the handsome young actor somebody to bat his eyes at and vice versa just to get a few additional eyeballs into the cinemas.

My, my. Look who says they got a call about the new film.

I always thought Oldman had supplied General Grievous' voice....but apparently it wasn't used.

I didn't think anyone other than Matthew Wood did it. I though that was another situation where he originally just did the temporary voice, but they liked it so much they kept it. I could be mistaken though.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

^ That was my understanding of it as well. Though, it's been so many years, I don't have a link handy. And I'm too lazy to google it.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

Not casting news, but ILM announced yesterday that they're opening an outpost in London for effects not just on the next Star Wars trilogy, but other films including Age of Ultron.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

I saw that. There are people inside the industry already complaining that the new London facilities will take jobs from American effects artists at a time when it's not a good thing. Personally, I don't see a big issue with branching out and setting up some offices closer to where many big budget films are actually shot.

Any positions on this side of the pond will be replaced by something else of equal or even greater value. Besides, it's not as if the American special effects artist is some endangered, dying species.

As long as their not shutting down fascilities in the US, I don't see how it would effect the US SFX industry. If anything it would just help the UK industry.

The US SFX industry is under major financial strain and in danger of losing a lot of jobs, partly because of SFX work going overseas where labor costs are lower. See here.

Oh, yeah. I do remember hearing about that now that you link through to that story. It just seems weird to me that the industry would be in such bad shape, when so many movies are using such massive amounts of VFX these days.

Re: New Casting and Story Rumors re: EPISODE VII

^ That was wild. Thanks for sharing it. I don't think it was specific to Episode VII, more like they were taking a familiar environment, characters and vehicles to show off the new tech.

We're going to be so spoiled by the time this film comes out.

It's a pretty good time to be a Star Wars fan, for sure.
