Gwendoline Christie, who played the role of Captain Phasma in the 2015 blockbuster hit "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," is set to reprise the role in the next film in the "Star Wars" sequel trilogy, "Star Wars: Episode VIII."
"I will be in the next 'Star Wars' movie," Christie told PEOPLE at the red carpet pre-show for the 2016 Screen Actors Guild Awards. "I think that's an exclusive, actually," she said.
Christie, who is best known for her role as Brienne of Tarth in HBO's popular fantasy drama series "Game of Thrones" and for playing Commander Lyme in the final "The Hunger Games" film, said that she was "very overexcited" about the casting and admitted that she campaigned for a long time to get the part. "And then I was delighted when J.J. Abrams wanted to have me in the film and then wanted to cast me in this role that had originally been designed for a man," she revealed. more >>

With the huge success of "Mad Max: Fury Road" (2015), it comes as no surprise that at least two more sequels for the action film are being planned.
On top of that, "Fury Road" director George Miller has again reiterated that he has already written two more "Mad Max" stories. Speaking from the Loyola Marymount's School of Film and TV for The Hollywood Reporter's ongoing interview series "The Hollywood Masters" on Friday, Jan. 29, Miller replied to the question of whether or not there will be a sequel to "Fury Road," saying, "Because ["Mad Max: Fury Road"] got delayed so often, and we dug down deep into the backstory, Nick Lathouris and I have written two other stories."
He added: "One is a full script. It doesn't have a title. And one of them we talked about in great detail and he wrote as a novella." more >>

For many Batman fans, Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight Rises" (2012), in which the Caped Crusader (played by Christian Bale) hung up his cape and mask and retired, leaving his secret and his Batcave to Robin (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), provided the perfect ending for the DC superhero. The film, and the two others in the Nolan-helmed trilogy, are considered to this day to be some of the best superhero films in recent history.
As such, "Batman v Superman" director Zack Snyder felt the need to ask Nolan's permission before bringing the Dark Knight back to the big screen. In an interview with Empire magazine, Snyder revealed that he told the "Interstellar" and "Inception" director, "You tell me if you don't want me to do it."
According to Snyder, after a beat, Nolan replied: "Well, we don't own these characters. When you're done making Batman movies, someone else will [make them]." more >>
