Movie News: Expect to See Saw Gerrera in More 'Star Wars' Projects; Watch Animated 'Ocean Waves' Trailer

Dec 29, 2016

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Star Wars: We've already heard that Saw Gerrera, the freedom fighter portrayed by Forest Whitaker in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (above), will appear again in younger form on the animated series Star Wars Rebels. Now Kathleen Kennedy, Lucasfilm president, says: "We originally thought we were going to develop Saw into something much larger, but we couldn’t accommodate it. So he is not in the movie as much as we would like … which creates the opportunity to explore his character even further in our future development." [Empire via Slashfilm]

 

Captain America: Civil War

Scarlett Johansson: Actress Scarlett Johansson has been named the top-grossing actor of 2016. Primarily, that's thanks to Captain America: Civil War (above), but the actress also appeared in Hail, Caesar!, which earned enough money at the box office to place her ahead of Captain America costars Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. [Forbes]

 

U.S.S. Indianapolis: Men of Courage

Ronald Reagan: Nicolas Cage (USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage, above) is rumored to have been offered the role of Ronald Reagan in an unidentified movie that will show the former president "in a flattering light." The actor's publicist, however, says: "It’s way too early in the development process" to discuss. [Page Six]
