- On top of the rumor news as always, Club Jade reveals that the Star Wars spin off films could be origin stories and that cast may have begun for a young Han Solo.
- A classic movie of the 80’s is getting a reboot. While I liked RoboCop as a kid, this new one has really got my attention: Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman and Michael Keaton. That’s a one hell of a supporting cast. Look for RoboCop in February 2014.
