The Tonight Show

Furious 8: Vin Diesel says that the next installment in the Fast and Furious series will be set in "New York, baby!" The actor, appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, reminded everyone that the original inspiration for the initial installment came from a magazine article about the racing scene in New York City, so it makes sense for the franchise to finally head to the Big Apple. The movie is scheduled for release on April 14, 2017. [Collider]

 

Kathleen Kennedy

Star Wars: Kathleen Kennedy, president of LucasFilm, claims: "There’s nothing we’d like more than to find a female director for Star Wars." The next three episodes of the series will be directed by men, as well as the first two spinoff films. "There are women who are Star Wars fans," she added. "That’s what’s so insane.” Kennedy hopes to find a female director for one of the upcoming, yet to be identified, spinoff films. [Variety]
