Disney plans to release one Star Wars film a year starting in 2015

So everybody figured that Disney wouldn’t only make Star Wars VII. I mean the amount they paid for the franchise is absurd and they are definitely planning on getting their moneys worth. They just announced that every summer starting in 2015, a new Star Wars will be released. If you weren’t sure that Disney was going to ruin the franchise, you probably should be now. How much is too much? We’ll see.

These annual releases will include the other two movies in the new trilogy and several standalone films, which will focus on specific characters from the Star Wars franchise.

The main episodes — VIII and IX — will be released every other summer and a standalone movie will be released during the off years, film sites reported when the news broke during a CinemaCon session in Las Vegas. CinemaCon brings together movie theater owners.

J.J. Abrams, director of the latest Star Trek movies, will direct Star Wars: Episode VII, Disney and Lucasfilm announced on StarWars.com in January. Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed the standalone films in February, adding that “They are not part of the overall saga.”

Saul the lawyer from Breaking Bad may be getting his own spin-off

Shortly, the last half season of Breaking Bad will begin and that’s gonna be it. No more Walt, no more Jesse, no more dead drug lords. But it looks like that the character of Saul, played by Bob Odenkirk, may be getting his own spin-off, probably as he high tails it the fuck out of New Mexico.

Deadline stresses that no deals are in place yet and the project is “in its nascent stages,” but that Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan and series writer/producer Peter Gould are having conversations with AMC and Sony about a Saul series they would produce. Gilligan and Gould created Saul together when he was introduced as Walter White and Jesse Pinkman’s oh-so shady attorney in Season 2 of Breaking Bad.
