Fast Furious

Since production has kicked off on "Fast and Furious 7," dispatches from the set have become more frequent and increasingly awesome. They started as photos on Vin Diesel's Facebook. Then there was a video from the set yesterday day.

Now, Ludacris has posted a new video to his Instagram that teases exactly what we love about this series: the cars.

Check out the video after the jump!

One piece of news that made the Disney acquisition of Lucasfilm bittersweet was the end of the beloved "Star Wars: Clone Wars" series on Cartoon Network. Diehards of the show followed for seasons as we learned what went down during the intervening years between "Attack of the Clones" and "Revenge of the Sith," but under Disney's redirection, "Clone Wars" came to an end with the promise of more "Star Wars" animation to come.

The promise was fulfilled by the announcement of "Star Wars Rebels," a new animated show taking place between the two trilogies, and now some recognizable names are in talks to voice the characters from that galaxy far, far away.

The Hollywood Reporter just published a story claiming that "The Butler" breakout David Oyelow — who was rumored last week for "Episode VII" — and Freddie Prinze Jr. are among the voice actors joining the project.

FROM NEXT MOVIE

Anyone with a smartphone can shoot something and call it a movie, but making a film in the traditional sense hasn't gotten any easier with the advent of new technology. There are dozens and dozens of gatekeepers that still keep wannabe writers and directors from realizing their dream when the budget balloons to something bigger than the video you made with your cat.

That's why you have to jump at an opportunity like the one The Weinstein Company is offering in association Next Movie and Film.com.

The "Master Storyteller" contest was created to find new and exciting talent and to give writers and opportunity to pitch their original ideas directly to the people who can help them become a reality. All you have to do is submit an entirely original treatment between 200 and 1,000 words in length.

The five finalists will be considered for the winning pitch, which will then be developed by the respected studio.

Head over to Next Movie for the full details on the "Master Storyteller" contest.

Breaking Bad

With only two more episodes left, it's time we come to terms with the end of "Breaking Bad." It will be hard to leave behind Walter, Jesse, Saul, and the rest of the gang, but a new prop auction is getting us a chance to own pieces of the show's history.

Sony Pictures Entertainment has teamed up with the website ScreenBid.com to sell of many of the props from the show, from the smallest test tube all the way up to the Whites' cars. The auction begins on September 29, the day of the finale, and will include items from that episode once it has aired.

Check out our top ten favorite items from the auction after the jump!

For the first time since 2005, Pixar will not be releasing a movie next year. That's because "The Good Dinosaur," the movie that was scheduled to be released in theaters on May 30, 2014, will now open in November of 2015, taking a release date away from "Finding Dori." The "Finding Nemo" sequel will now come out in the summer of 2016.

The future of "The Good Dinosaur" has been uncertain in recent weeks, and the pushed back release date seems to bring closure to the shaky period.

It was late last month when Bob Peterson, a co-director of "Up," was pulled of the his follow-up project, "The Good Dinosaur," by the Pixar higher-ups without a public explanation, other than that it's important to get a new set of eyes on a project sometime.

rowling

Last week's news about J.K. Rowling penning the first film in a "Harry Potter" spin-off series caught everyone by surprise. Few authors are as protective of their characters as Rowling , especially those from the wizarding world, so the least shocking element of the news was her heavy involvement.

But how closely will Rowling work on the project? The initial press release from Warner Bros indicated that the best-selling author would write the first screenplay for the series based on "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," which will follow the fictional book's author, Newt Scamander.

Now a new story from The Hollywood Reporter gives us a better idea of the role Rowling will play in the series.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

The teaming of Arnold Schwarzenegger and James Cameron is a pretty formidable one. In three films together, they made two bona fide classics, the first two "Terminator" movies, and one more highly respected action movie, "True Lies." With both men still working, it seemed like only a matter of time before we saw the credits back on screen together.

Cameron has publicly aired his intention to only make "Avatar" movies in order to fund his adventures to the ocean floor, and plans for the next three looked to tie him up even further down the road, but if Latino-Review has the story right, the Cameron-Schwarzenegger reteam might be sooner than we expected.

El Mayimbe over at Latino-Review is reporting that Schwarzenegger is in line to play the next big human bad guy for the fantasy-action series.

Lucas black

Up until now, "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift" had been the unfortunate middle child of the popular series, the odd one-off with only tenuous connections to the movies starring Paul Walker and Vin Diesel. The series' surprisingly complex chronology — the Diesel-Walker movies just caught up to the events of "Tokyo Drift" — didn't help the matter.

That was until yesterday. Deadline is reporting that Lucas Black, who played the hero Sean Boswell in "Tokyo Drift," has been welcomed into the family with open arms. The site said that Black has signed on be a new series regular with appearances already set for "Fast 7, 8 and 9."

It's a very good day to be Lucas Black.

Emily Ratajkowski

A revealing music video for Robin Thicke's song "Blurred Lines" made an internet sensation out of Emily Ratajkowski, and now a role in one of the most highly anticipated literary adaptations will give her first shot at a big screen role that will involve slightly more clothing.

Ratajkowski, according to The Wrap, has just scored a role in David Fincher's "Gone Girl," the adaptation of Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel. She'll play Andie, a mysterious girl who is revealed to have an important role in the disappearance of Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike).

As anyone who has read "Gone Girl" will tell you, spoilers are pretty deadly for the overall effect of the story, so click past the jump for more (slightly spoilery) info on the role!
