Just weeks after the official announcement of the Star Wars Episode VII cast, filming is officially under way. Actor John Boyega shared a photo of a scene marker from the set, letting fans know that sooner rather than later they’ll be reunited with their favorite Star Wars characters.
“Day one of episode 7! Here we go!,” he wrote.
The film, which boasts an amazing cast of major stars, will be released sometime in 2015.
Spring Breakers 2 producers are firing back at James Franco after the actor went off about how horrible the film will likely be.
“It will be a terrible film, with a horrible reason d’être: to make money off someone else’s creativity,” he said.
Well, the film’s producers weren’t going to take that lying down. Chris Hanley of Muse Productions sat down with Variety to talk about Franco’s comments. Here’s what he had to say:
“Let’s see if I can remember all of the sequels James has done,” Hanley laughed before listing The Great and Mighty Oz, Spider Man, Planet of the Apes. All this before adding, “and he’s pushing hard to help set up the Pineapple Express sequel. I guess he thinks only ‘too big to fall studio films’ are the artistically valid ventures.”
*Insert Kanye shrug* Ouch.
Nowadays, it’s pretty rare to find a celebrity who hasn’t gone under the knife for some sort of cosmetic procedure. Yet one star, 48-year-old Robin Wright, is coming forward to say she did it, but only because of the immense pressure she felt from Hollywood to do so.
Wright says not wanting to have plastic surgery nearly prevented her from landing a role on her hit Netflix original series House Of Cards when director David Fincher pitched it years ago.
“I was sitting there going, ‘You’re 45, and you’re not gonna get a face-lift,'” She said in her interview for Town & Country. “I was really considering that stuff, because in Hollywood the pressure’s there. You better lift that face and pump those lips and hike those boobs! And I was like, ‘I don’t want to do that. I’m going to get older. I’m going to have wrinkles!”
Though she gave in somewhat, settling for “the tiniest sprinkle of Botox twice a year,” the pressure is still on for the actress.

The Bellas are back, Pitch Perfect fans!
“365 days until Pitch Perfect 2 is released,” Banks, who is directing the musical, captioned the photo.
The sequel promises an even stronger cast of singers and performers and a whole lot more catchy music, though Elizabeth has kept her lips tightly sealed for the most part. Stay tuned.
