Daniel Day-Lewis Gets Eaten by the ‘Star Wars VII’ Rumor Machine

Before it's all over, every notable actor working today will have been rumored as a possibility for Star Wars: Episode VII. This week, it's Daniel Day-Lewis' turn. Next week? Dabney Coleman and big-bootied adult-starlet Alexis Texas will be added to the mix. But for now, we'll stick with Lewis.

Latino Review, which is no stranger to inaccurate casting news, is claiming that Lewis was recently spotted having lunch with George Lucas and Kathleen Kennedy, the current head of Lucasfilm. If the meeting even took place, it's entirely possible that the trio discussed something completely unrelated to Star Wars, like the long awaited Howard the Duck prequel, A Quack of the Clones.

Latest ‘Star Wars’ Casting Rumors: Is Khan from ‘Star Trek’ Going to a Galaxy Far, Far Away?

Let's call a spade a spade and just say, straight up, that J.J. Abrams and his overlords over at Disney have been huge dill-holes about this whole Star Wars: Episode VII thing. We don't want them to rush. We want them to make smart decisions when it comes to plot and cast so we don't end up with more Ewoks or Gungans. But they know how much we're all dying to know about the next Star Wars trilogy, and now it's starting to feel like they're stringing us along for shits and giggles.

Disney and Lucasfilm Delay Star Wars: Episode VII, Because They Can Do What Ever They Want

Are you guys sitting down? Get this: Disney is delaying the release of Star Wars: Episode VII...by a few months. Because that's what you do when you have no script, no title, no confirmed actors, and billions upon billions of dollars. When are they changing it to now? Christmas-time of course. Well, maybe.

‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ Rumors: Emperor Palpatine Up In This Bitch?

Is the character of Emperor Palpatine returning for Star Wars: Episode VII? It would seem unlikely considering Darth Vader threw him down the friggin' Death Star's reactor shaft. But that's the rumor currently sweeping the Interwebs thanks to Jedi NewsAccording to their 'unnamed source,' Ian McDiarmid will return for Episode VII as the senator-turned-Sith. Then again, an 'unnamed source' told me that a topless Kate Upton will be playing the queen of the Ewoks in the new trilogy, so in the words of Walter White, maybe we should 'tread lightly' in regard to these rumors from unnamed sources.

John Williams Will Score the New ‘Star Wars’ Films (Unless He Dies)

We've got some good news and some bad news about the planned Star Wars sequels.

The good news is that composer John Williams has agreed to score the films. The bad news is that he's eighty-f*cking-one-years old, which means that he could peace out at any moment. Considering the first film isn't even due until 2015, there's a very real possibility that he won't be around for all three. And that would not be good

After all, where would Star Wars be without his iconic music? Hell, 'Duel of the Fates' is the only tolerable part of Phantom Menace. Hopefully I'm just being negative, and Williams will live to be 135. But just in case, they better get him the the studio tomorrow. The clock is ticking.

Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy Talks ‘Star Wars VII’ Without Saying a Goddamn Thing

I don't envy the position that Kathleen Kennedy is in -- she probably spends her day in a Faraday cage surrounded by body guards, lest some precious tidbit about Star Wars: Episode VII reach the internet. Seriously, she's got to be knee deep in mouthbreathing stalkers who just want to know if they're going to see four nanoseconds of Boba Fett. But, at least in formal interviews, she could throw us a tiny bone?

Nope; she's got her lips sealed tighter than a Gungan's butthole (They live under water? Get it?). Which is why it's not shocking that she said absolutely nothing of consequence this weekend at Star Wars Celebration Europe -- that continent's nerdiest event since the last Rush tour. In an interview with forever-Willow Warwick Davis, she said, among other useless things:

We're going to find some very cool locations that we're going to use in support of Episode VII. And I think we're probably going to end up using every single tool in the toolbox to create the look of these movies.

Which is basically like saying, 'Hey guys, we're making a movie and we're using things and places to make that movie. Can I go now?'

So, yeah, and if a hutt had wings it wouldn't drag its tail when it slithered. Thanks for nothing.
