Fast & Furious 7

Fast & Furious 7: Director James Wan happily shared a photo of the vehicle that will be driven by a villain in the upcoming Fast & Furious 7, with the caption: "my villain drives a nice set of wheels. #astonmartin." That villain in question appears to be Jason Statham, which would make the choice of an Aston Martin -- the favored automobile of secret agent James Bond -- deliciously ironic. The movie is due out on July 11, 2014. [Coming Soon]

Masters of the Universe: Jon Chu (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), who was attached to direct a big-screen version of Masters of the Universe last year, has now dropped out of the project. Meanwhile, Terry Rossio (The Lone Ranger, the Pirates of the Caribbean series) has been hired to write a new draft of the script, which has been worked on by at least three other writers over the years. The new version will be set on the planet Eternia. [The Hollywood Reporter]

Blue Jasmine: Woody Allen's latest film has won critical and popular acclaim everywhere it's played, and was scheduled to open in India last weekend. But the director refused to alter Blue Jasmine in order to allow antismoking advertisements to be inserted into scenes in which characters are shown smoking, as required by the Indian government. Thus, the Indian distributor cancelled the release. [Reuters]
