AntonChigger: GavinTheAlmighty: I'm sorry, are we pretending that Mark Hamill was anything other than a terrible actor in those movies?

But he just wanted to go to Toshi station to pick up those power converters!!!

/you read that in Mark Hamill's voice, admit it


Much whining in him, like his father.

I called it.

They're not looking to create a Star Wars movie. They're looking to create a Twilight style franchise. They're not going to cast actual actors, just flavor of the month pop stars.

MBTAhole: Kristen Stewart as Leia.

I don't know what else this Efron kid's done, but he wasn't that bad in Firefly.

Uh.

If you consider the original trilogy, only Guinness had a three-stars career before that (and he hated Star Wars, which he considered dumb) and only Ford had a three-stars career after that.
And half of Ford's acting consists in looking as if he's lost his car keys and is looking around for them, the other half consisting in bearing a shiat eating grin.

His most noticed performances post-SW were Shiat eating grin-bearing Dr Jones and Regarding Henry in which his character takes a bullet to the head and spends one hour and a half looking for his keys. (am I trying too hard?)

People should worry about having a good story, instead. The rest will follow.
/BTW, Efron's CV is not half bad for an actor his age.

- dye Al Pacino in green and have him play Yoda "Why d'you kiss your sister, Luke? Cause she's got A GREAT ASS..." 
- NPH as Han Solo
- the Old Spice guy as Calrissian
- Stewart and Pattinson as Leila and Luke
- Rupert Sanders as Vader and wait for Pattinson's reaction as he takes the helmet off

Popcorn Johnny: I'd have the next film pick up where part 3 ended. There's an 18 year gap between the ending of part 3 and part 4 that needs to be filled in.


there's an empty grave that needs to be filled in too.

JAKE LLOYD! he's old enough and since the entire franchise sucks now, he's be perfect....as Jabba Jr..

whatever, whomever, it's going to suck A$$

Jizz Master Zero: Okay, I want everyone to line up. Anyone who believes this story will step forward. Someone will be around shortly to kick you in the nuts as hard as humanly possible as punishment for being so goddamned stupid.

Red Flag 1: story is from a gossip site that is the modern equivalent of the National Inquirer.
Red Flag 2: story is unsourced. The best you get is "oddsmakers." Which ones? Vegas? Reno? Larry in mail room?
Red Flag 3: The deal won't be finalized until the end of the year. They only have an outline. They've already said that they don't have a screenwriter or director yet. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is in place to even begin casting yet.

The article is based on pure speculation an deserves, at best, to be ignored.


SO
MUCH
THIS

Honestly I'm shocked that our dumb, Lowest Common Denominator culture didn't just default back to Shia Lebouf. That no-talent ass-clown shows up in everything else. So many depressing possibilities out there.

I'm not against the idea of Episodes 7-9. Just don't make them about 30-60 year-old Luke & Leia. I don't want to see those characters re-cast and I don't want to see old Leia and Han Solo doing the hippity-dippity. It shouldn't be that hard to create new stories about Luke's kids or some other Skywalker descendent rising from humble circumstances, being mentored by an older, wiser wizard and overcoming long odds while having adventures with fun characters that they meet along the journey.

Just for god's sake please let's have no more flying R2-D2, no ham-fisted C3PO cameos, no lame dialogue, no stupid forced humor, no lame love stories with zero chemsitry, no more slow-walking shots, MUCH less green-screen sets and no more got-damn midichlorians. PLEASE!?
 
2012-11-04 09:07:05 PM  
If they cast Harrison and Carrie, i imagine some of the dialogue would be like this:

Han: "It was about that time that I noticed the smuggler was a two meter tall worm from the Nal Hutta sector.."

Leia: "Jabba the Hutt."

Han: "What you want Jabba the Hutt? And he said, '%20' and i said, 'i ain't givin you no %20!, and he said 'how bout %15?' and i said 'what, is there a sale on Jabba the Hutts or somethin'?"

Leia: "That made him real angry."

Han: "You damn right it made me angry."

Leia: "Not you, Jabba. He was about to put a bounty on your ass."
 
2012-11-04 09:26:31 PM  
I hope they cast the whole thing with midgets, like Terror of Tiny Town. If they are gonna blow this pig up make sure it's an epic explosion.
 
2012-11-04 09:29:30 PM  
seems applicable . . .


\\I dunno
\can't be a whole lot worse than 1 2 3 and the various redos.
 
2012-11-04 09:35:56 PM  
Well Disney can't fark it up more than Lucas did. Star Wars might start being good again without Lucas ruining it.

Is that right? Huh. I guess Sorkin's writing truly is that good.

I'd like to see the Heir to the Empire trilogy brought to the screen, personally. Imagine Tim Curry as Grand Admiral Thrawn.

Bring in Nathan Fillion to be Han.

Who gives a shot? Everyone seems to think the next Star Wars will be as awesome as a Christopher Nolan Batman movie. But there's a really good chance it will be Fantastic Four meets The Green Lantern on Transformers Toy Island.

Face facts. 90% of everything sucks. Even Star Wars was just two pretty good movies made more than thirty years ago, followed by about ten billion dollars of absolute crap. Disney doesn't have a magic wand that's going to make it good again.

Great point. Star Wars was such a large and loved movie before it was ever released that they could cast anyo...oh, wait? You mean that the movie became a hit after it was released so your logic of casting makes no sense in an established franchise that can (and should) have decent actors?


Either this is some confused, Nyquil-fuelled trolling or you took my ridiculous SNL-material casting seriously and your logic does boil down to saying rabbits have good eyesight because they don't wear glasses.

Star Wars was a basic story with ok actors but became a success because it was an uplifting, simple sci-fi movie which came out at a time where Red Dawn seemed like a documentary to most people. Great actors didn't save the prequels, good writers are more vital. You can't put even Robert de Niro in front of a tennis ball in a green room for 10 hours and expect academy material at the end.

And anyone really thinking the next Star Wars movie is coming out in 2015 is delusional. There were at best 3 years between the last movies and they had a story, a casting, etc. already at hand.
Nothing before 2016/17 is my guess: the hollywood dirt sheets are going to spread watercooler discussion for the next year or so and people are going to go up in arms because Luke Skywalker deserves better than a nobody who's done Scooby-doo voice-overs.

And in true fark "oh, wait"/"pro tip" fashion: when defending movies on artistic merits, avoid using terms which could be applied to Saw or Paranormal activity, such as "hit" and "franchise".

After the absolute devastation of Mars Needs Moms and John Carter, you'd think Disney wouldn't want to get within 9 parsecs of another space adventure film.
 
2012-11-05 09:11:01 AM  

ThatBillmanGuy: Yeah, this will happen.. Just like how Leo Dicaprio became Anakin...

/though, might have been a better movie..


At least Dicaprio can act and do more than one rendition of whiney biatch.
