Star Wars: Episode VII:  It appears that at least two roles in Star Wars: Episode VII are open to young unknowns. One role is described as female, 17-18 years of age ("street-smart, independent, athletic… quite young when she lost her parents"), and the other, a male in the 18-23 age range ("athletic, smart, handsome, independent spirited… grown up without a father's influence"). Casting calls have gone out in the U.K. and in Chicago, the latter on Thursday, November 14. [Chicago Tribune via The Hollywood Reporter]

Blended: Adam Sandler reunites with Drew Barrymore for their third movie together, after The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates, but the comedy is having title trouble. Sandler and Barrymore play single parents who share a disastrous first date at a theme park and then must spend the day together with their children in tow. First it was titled Blended, then it was changed to The Familymoon (?!), and now it's been been changed again... back to Blended. Whatever it's called, it's still heading to theaters on May 23, 2014.
