George Lucas' daughter may have cost Joseph Fiennes the role of Obi-Wan

It's hard to imagine anyone other than Ewan McGregor playing Obi-Wan Kenobi in the STAR WARS prequel trilogy, but at one point, the role could very well have gone to Joseph Fiennes (The Handmaid's Tale).

Brett Ratner blames Rotten Tomatoes for the destruction of Hollywood

Did Dwayne Johnson just announce that he'll be playing Shazam?

There's been talk of whether or not that the rumored DC line-up will actually come to fruition. One of the biggest surprises of that line-up was a Shazam stand-alone film hitting in July of 2016. Given that audiences in the realm of cinema have little-to-no idea who/what/when/where/why Shazam is, I can see how the announcement of his own film might seem a little far-fetched. However,...

Next Friday he's going pretty much solo in Brett Ratner 's HERCULES.
