Michael B Jordan

We have now reached critical mass for "Star Wars" rumors. It was only two days ago that Latino Review posted a story that claimed Saoirse Ronan is in the running for an undisclosed role and that Benedict Cumberbatc — despite numerous denials — is certainly in "Episodes VII, VIII and IX."

Well, Latino Review is back with two more actors to add to the list of individuals who have either read for roles or taken meetings with J.J. Abrams.

According to the site, David Oyelowo of "The Butler" and "Rise of the Planet of the Apes" and Michael B. Jordan from "Fruitvale Station" and "Friday Night Lights" are now being considered for the film.

Fast and Furious 7

It isn't all happy times and car races for Dom and the gang on the set of "Fast and Furious 7." Vin Diesel posted the above picture with the caption, "The first week of filming has been both intense and surreal... P.s. One from set... a more somber moment in Our Saga..."

Journalists, like MTV News' Josh Horowitz, are always getting the opportunity to ask A-listers like Chris Hemsworth and Olivia Wilde whatever they want. Isn't it time that the average fan get a chance to ask a few?

That's why After Hours introduced a new segment called "Fan Line" with the cast of "Rush."

On "Fan Line," fans — all of whom are named Josh, strangely — get to ask the stars of "Rush" any question they want without having to worry about how it might affect their career or position at MTV News. Even if those questions are about "The Grinch" or if the asker isn't completely sure who Chris Hemsworth is.

Check out "Fan Line" in the newest episode of After Hours.


Brad Pitt Fury

It wasn't that long ago that Brad Pitt was carving swastikas into the foreheads of Nazis as Aldo the Apache in Quentin Tarantino's "Inglourious Basterds," but he's already going back to World War II and that prospect has us excited for a few different reasons.

"Fury" is the next film from David Ayer, who recently delivered the better-than-expected "End of Watch," and this time he's following a team of men as they ride in a different vehicle of justice, a tank. You can see the first picture from the production and the entire cast in the photo above.

The cast, including Pitt, is stacked from top to bottom and includes Logan Lerman, Shia LaBeouf, Michael Peña, and Jon Bernthal from "The Walking Dead."

Among the many raves that "Rush" has already received, the look of the actual races is one of the elements complimented the most about the new Ron Howard film.

At the Toronto International Film Festival, MTV News' Josh Horowitz sat down with Howard to hear how he brought the world of 1970s Formula One racing to the big screen.

"It did have the advantage of being a true story and a surprising one," he said. "It's not narrative that unfolds more or less like you'd expected any good sports movie to unfold. It's just different from that. I thought that was our clue in terms of the racing."

It's been a few days since a "Star Wars" rumor, right? So it's probably time for another "Star Wars" rumor.


Oh, look at that. Latino-Review, as if on command, has delivered another anonymously sourced tidbit from the J.J. Abrams production. This time there are two news pieces of info and an update on an older scoop.

Let's start with the older news first. Latino-Review is doubling down on its claim that Benedict Cumberbatch is making the same jump from "Trek" to "Wars" that his director has. Not only does Latino-Review claim that Cumberbatch will be in "Episode VII," but they go as far as to guarantee expanded roles in "Episodes VIII and IX."

It's hard not to love John Green. The author of "The Fault In Our Stars" is also an incredibly popular internet personality, and he hosts — among many, many other things — a weekly video series over at mentalfloss that is packed with fascinating info.

We've enjoyed pretty much every mentalfloss video thus far, but the latest one is right up our alley.

In the new episode, Green tells of 55 movies that, for whatever reason, went unfinished. Some of the stalled projects have become well-known over the years, like Nic Cage's Superman flick, but most are new to us.

Check it out in the video above!

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.

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.
