Abrams as director of "Star Wars: Episode VII" in between us writing this and it going live) revolves around Quentin Tarantino's "The Hateful Eight."

    Bill Condon Out, Forest Whitaker Now Producing Forever-Developing Richard Pryor Biopic

    The saga of the constantly-in-development Richard Pryor biopic could fill pages upon pages but we'll try and keep it brief.
