Liam Neeson Back As Qui-Gon Jinn
Liam Neeson is set to play his character from Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Qui-Gon Jinn, again, but in sound form only. He’ll be providing the voice for the Jedi Master in two episodes in a three-story arc of The Clone Wars, reports Entertainment Weekly. And here’s a clip:
Writer Assigned To Black Panther Movie
Another Marvel superhero takes a step nearer to the big screen, with the announcement on Heat Vision that Marvel Studios has hired Mark Bailey to write the script for a Black Panther movie. The first black superhero in mainstream comics, The Black Panther was otherwise known as T’Challa, the king of fictional African country Wakanda, first appearing in The Fantastic Four #52 in 1966. He eventually joined The Avengers for a while (didn’t everybody with a sniff of a superpower at some point?). Mark Bailey is primarily know as a documentary maker with credits including hard-hitting HBO documentaries such as Pandemic: Facing AIDS and Ghost of Abu Ghraib and the movie adaptation of the non-fiction book The Last of the Tribe: The Epic Quest To Save A Lone Man In The Amazon. Interesting choice.

Vampire Diaries Producer Still Not Sure What The Season Two Big Bad Will Be Like
Vampire Diaries fans will know there’s a big, bad vampire waiting in the wings. His name – Klaus – has been mentioned in hushed tones on the show, and we’ve been warned that, as an ancient bloodsucker, he’s a force to be reckoned with. But what’s he going to be like? Even the show’s executive producer Julie Plec isn’t entirely sure yet. She tells TV Guide that he will definitely make an appearance before season two finishes but, “We do not know anything about him other than that he’s to be reckoned with and that no one’s going to be safe when he gets to town. How he gets to town, when he gets to town, what he looks like when he gets to town — that’s all part of the mystery.” And what he looks like is also currently a mystery to her, as they are in the middle of casting the role. “It’s exciting to see a lot of new faces and try to figure out who we want that character to be and what kind of attitude we want him to have, what kind of charm we want him to have. That character is evolving even as we cast because we see a lot of things that we like and we think, ‘Ooh, that’s interesting. What an interesting take on the character.’”
Bond 23 Title?
Both The Sun and Bleeding Cool are claiming that Bond 23’s title will be Red Sky At Night. File under “extreme rumour” for the moment.
