Kathleen Kennedy and JJ Abrams

On the September 7, 2017 episode of /Film Daily, Peter Sciretta is joined by Hoai-Tran Bui and Ben Pearson. We chat a little more about the Colin Trevorrow’s departure from Star Wars Episode 9, and the latest news: problematic casting in the live-action Aladdin movie, an authorized Dracula prequel, Justice League reshoots, and surprising bidders for the James Bond film rights. In the Water Cooler, we talk about It, Boston and My Immortal. And in The Mail Bag we take on the question: Is Kathleen Kennedy to blame for all these Star Wars problems?
