Star Wars Episode VII is currently filming, the first Star Wars spinoff comes after that, and then Rian Johnson is making Star Wars Episode VIII. Tentatively, that suggests the film would be released in 2017, and the director is already being courted for roles in the film. Case in point comes from the Hulk himself, Mark Ruffalo.
The actor worked with Johnson on 2008′s The Brothers Bloom and recently emailed the director congratulating him on the job and letting him know he’d love to be in the movie. Johnson then took to Twitter to respond. Read everything Mark Ruffalo Star Wars below.
UPDATE: Now some other stars are asking Johnson to be in the film. See their tweets below. Read More »

Update: Video footage added after the jump.
Photos of the sets and vehicles for Star Wars Episode VII are among the most sought-after snaps right now, and one guy managed to get one by accident.

If you didn’t think JJ Abrams was an Apple fan, then take a look at the Apple Store-looking design of the bridge of the USS Enterprise in his Star Trek films. In his famous “mystery box” Ted Talk, Abrams enthused “I love Apple computers. I’m obsessed. My MacBook challenges me: ‘What are you going to write that is worthy of me?’”
So it comes as no surprise that Abrams was glued to the Apple announcements yesterday morning as he prepped for another day of shooting on Star Wars Episode VII. He even tweeted out a photo of a note he wrote geeking out about the new Apple Watch which was announced, but take note of the background of the photo which teases a Star Wars set which might seem familiar to fans of the series. What does this new JJ Abrams photo tell us about Episode 7? Lets speculate after the jump.

One of the first rules of reporting is that if you can’t get a primary source, get corroborating sources. Let’s say you’re trying to figure out what happens in Star Wars Episode VII. J.J. Abrams or Harrison Ford would be a primary source because they are directly involved. Since they can’t or won’t speak on the record about it, the best thing to do is find multiple unrelated people can who give you the same information. If you can get three people to corroborate something, that’s usually considered a fact.
We might now have two sources to push some big rumors toward fact.
Latino Review has been one of a handful of sources for the myriad Star Wars 7 rumors in the past few months. In a new column, they reveal almost everything they’ve reported was initially reported back in March on 4Chan. That seems to mean two independent sources have corroborated some of the biggest Star Wars 7 rumors/spoilers out there today.
Below, we’ll show you that original report and trace the links between the sites. Beware of massive spoilers. Read More »
