At one point, it seemed very likely that Fargo and Legion creator Noah Hawley would be involved with both an Alien TV series and Star Trek 4. But these days, both projects are looking less and less likely. In a new interview, Hawley confirms that there’s next to no movement on either property. As Hawley tells it, he hasn’t really been involved with anything regarding Alien for a few years, and while Star Trek 4 came “very close to production,” things ultimately fizzled out.

The Star Wars prequels have gained a sort of infamy amongst fans of the franchise, and some fans even suggest they “destroyed” the series. Which is what 20th Century Fox executives feared would happen — though not for the reasons you may think. In Taschen’s upcoming book The Star Wars Archives: 1999-2005, it’s revealed that Fox thought George Lucas would “destroy” the franchise if he made 10-year-old Anakin Skywalker the star of the prequel films.

Director James Cameron recently revealed that production on Avatar 2 is 100% complete in both live-action and motion capture filming, and Avatar 3 wasn’t too far behind. If you’re wondering what’s taking so damn long, it might be more than just the extensive post-production process and development of state-of-the-art technology. Because according to Sigourney Weaver, preparation for the shoot required cast members to train with “elite military divers” in order to allow them to hold their breath underwater for as much as six minutes, so Cameron could maximize the amount of footage he could capture in a single take.

The /Film staff has a bit of a running joke when it comes to Avatar 2 news: is the publicity team going out their way to release only the most boring images imaginable? But that’s the problem you face when the world of a film is largely digital and won’t be ready for primetime until long after the cameras have finished rolling. The other problem is that director James Cameron will hunt us down and hurt us if we joke too much.

The last time Bruce Willis reprised his role as John McClane in the Die Hard franchise, the results were disappointing to say the least. But over the weekend, fans were intrigued when the actor’s daughter, Rumer Willis, posted a teaser for the return of the increasingly invincible detective. For some reason, many thought this was a tease for a new Die Hard movie that no one had heard about. However, it turns out it was just a tease for an expensive new advertisement with John McClane shilling Die Hard car batteries for Advance Auto Parts. But honestly, it’s still probably better than the entirety of A Good Day to Die Hard.
