WILL YOU WATCH ANOTHER "STAR WARS" FILM ON BIG SCREEN? 


You may have no choice, because "Star Wars" is returning to the big screen in animated form, and this time, it's not 20th Century Fox who will distribute the film, but Warner Bros.

"STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS" WOULD HIT MOVIE THEATERS AUGUST 15TH!!!

"Clone Wars" is pretty much about the Jedi Knights and how they ensure the safety of the universe.

The film and TV-mini movies will feature favorite "Star Wars" heroes such as Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Padme Amidala. Palpatine, Count Dooku, and General Griveous will serve as the villains.

So what does executive producer and creator George Lucas say about the project? Read More...

"PASSION" CO-SCREENWRITER SUES MEL GIBSON!!! 


Benedict Fitzgerald, who shared screenwriting credits with Mel Gibson for "The Passion of the Christ," is claiming he was misled by the actor-director into accepting a small payment for writing "The Passion of the Christ," and was refused extra money when the film became a blockbuster.

According to the lawsuit, Gibson told Fitzgerald that the movie would cost between $4 million to $7 million, and that the actor promised he wouldn't receive any money from the film and any profit would be distributed to people who worked on it.

But then, the film ended up making almost half-a-billion at the box-office!

Hhhhmmm....I'll keep you posted on this lawsuit, stay tuned!

Scheider was also Oscar-nominated for "The French Connection" and "All That Jazz." Last Sunday, Scheider died at 75.
