David Chase would make another Sopranos prequel movie – but only if Terence Winter is involved

  David Chase would make another Sopranos prequel movie – but only if Terence Winter is involved Could another prequel be on the cards?"There’s only one way that I would do it, and that was if Terry and I could write the script together. That I would do," Chase said in a recent interview with Deadline. "A sequel to this movie you saw. In other words, what happens after this movie’s over, before the TV show starts.

  Ewan McGregor says making Obi-Wan Kenobi series was "I think it will not disappoint"Set 10 years after Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, the series sees McGregor reprise his role as the titular Jedi Master for the first time since the 2005 movie. He also compared the experience of making the series to the prequel trilogy of movies, saying it was "different.

Speaking at a news conference at the Russian launch facility in Baikonur, Kazakhstan, Peresild acknowledged that the training for the mission was grueling but described it as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

William Shatner will fly to space aboard Blue Origin rocket

  William Shatner will fly to space aboard Blue Origin rocket CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Captain Kirk is rocketing into space next week — boldly going where no other sci-fi actors have gone. Jeff Bezos’ space travel company, Blue Origin, announced Monday that “Star Trek” actor William Shatner will blast off from West Texas on Oct. 12. “Yes, it’s true; I’m going to be a 'rocket man!'” the 90-year-old tweeted. He added: “It’s never too late to experience new things.” Bezos, the founder of Amazon, is a huge fan of the sci-fi series and even had a cameo as a high-ranking alien in the 2016 film “Star Trek Beyond." His rocket company invited Shatner to fly as its guest.Shatner will become the oldest person to go to space.

“We worked really hard and we are really tired, even though we stay in good spirits and smile,” the 37-year-old actor confided. “It was psychologically, physically and morally hard. But I think that once we achieve the goal, all that will seem not so difficult and we will remember it with a smile.”

Peresild said it was difficult for her to adapt to the strict discipline and rigorous demands required during the training.

“Here on Baikonur, we made friends with everyone and all people warmed up,” she said. “But it was quite difficult in the beginning, when you aren't given much choice: Just go, run, go faster, hold on, carry on. It wasn't easy for us and it was quite unexpected, but we have gone through it."

She said learning about the design and handling of the spacecraft was the most challenging part of the preparation for the flight.

“It didn't come easy for me, to be honest,” she said. “For the first two weeks, I was learning it until 4 in the morning every night. There are so many acronyms, and if you don't learn them all you won't understand anything else further on.”

The part of the training that Peresild liked the most was a flight imitating weightlessness, in which a plane goes into a steep dive to allow those inside about 20 seconds in zero gravity. She added that she realizes that zero gravity in orbit could be completely different and is gearing up for her first morning in orbit.

“Some mornings could be difficult, even on Earth,” she said. “We thought a lot about it, and cosmonauts shared some life hacks."

International Space Station: Live updates

  International Space Station: Live updates Find out what's going on at the International Space Station. It linked up with a port on the station's Rassvet module at 8:22 a.m. EDT (1222 GMT), about 10 minutes later than planned after communications issues forced cosmonaut Anton Shklaperov to take manual control of the Soyuz for the docking. Despite the communications issue, Shklaperov docked the Soyuz at its port to deliver Russian actress Yulia Peresild and producer-director Klim Shipenko to the station.

Shipenko, 38, has made several commercially successful movies, including “Kholop” ("Serf"), a 2019 movie that set a Russian box office record. He also described the training as tough.

“Of course, we couldn't make many things at the first try, and sometimes even at a third attempt, but it's normal,” he said.

One of Shipenko’s previous films, “Salyut-7,” told the real story of a challenging 1985 mission of two Soviet cosmonauts sent to resuscitate an abandoned space station.

He described the four-month training course as very intensive, adding that while it didn't turn him and Peresild into professional astronauts it made them well prepared for the mission.

Shipenko said he's thrilled to be the first filmmaker in space and is keen to experiment with lighting, camera settings and other technical aspects. Once on the space station, Shipenko said he will don a T-shirt that he always wears when he begins to shoot a new movie.

What If…? could have spawned a separate Star Lord T’Challa series

"There was planning to have Star Lord T’Challa spin off into his own show," Andrews tells Variety. "We were all very excited. We know [Chadwick] would have loved it, too. And then, you know, he passed, and so all that's in limbo. So, who knows? Maybe one day."Sadly, Andrews also revealed that Boseman was unable to record any audio for season 2 of What If…?"Chadwick had recorded his Star Lord T'Challa stuff early.

Shkaplerov insisted that his entertainment-world crewmates are fully ready for the flight after their fast-track training.

“No one had that experience before: to prepare people who had no relation whatsoever to the space program for a space flight,” he said, adding that it could be useful in the future if a need arises to urgently send an outside expert into orbit.

Dmitry Rogozin, head of the Russian state space corporation Roscosmos, was a key driving force behind the project. Rogozin described making the world's first feature film in space as a chance to raise the nation's space prestige.

“Movies long have become a powerful instrument of propaganda,” he said in June, arguing that the new film would help counter what he described as Western efforts to “humiliate” the Russian space program.

Some Russian media were skeptical about the plan and there were reportedly some doubts inside the Russian space program as well.

Sergei Krikalev, a highly decorated veteran of the Soviet and Russian space programs who made six space flights, was fired from his post as director of Roscosmos' crewed missions in June following what some Russian media described as his sharp criticism of the filmmaking project.

Krikalev was reinstated to the director's job just a few days later, apparently due to intervention by his highly-placed backers. He has refrained from public comments on the project.

Peaky Blinders movie will shoot in 2023, reveals showrunner

  Peaky Blinders movie will shoot in 2023, reveals showrunner "That will probably be the sort of the end of the road for Peaky Blinders as we know it"Showrunner Steven Knight revealed during a London Film Festival panel that Peaky Blinders season 6 has finished shooting and editing is nearly wrapped up too. The show's final installment is expected to air sometime in spring 2022.

The Russian segment of the International Space Station is considerably less spacious compared to the U.S. segment, leaving little room for filmmaking. It was expanded in July after the long-awaited arrival of the new lab module, the Nauka, which is yet to be fully integrated into the station.

Once they arrive at the space station on Tuesday, the three newcomers will join Thomas Pesquet of the European Space Agency; NASA astronauts Mark Vande Hei, Shane Kimbrough and Megan McArthur; Aki Hoshide of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency; and Roscosmos cosmonauts Oleg Novitskiy and Pyotr Dubrov.

Filmmaking plans are sketchy, but Shipenko said that Shkaplerov, Novitskiy and Dubrov will all play parts in a new movie. Novitskiy, who is set to star as the ailing cosmonaut in the film, will take the captain's seat in a Soyuz capsule to take the crew back to Earth on Oct. 17.
