In a round-a-bout way this is Star Wars related, but the movies aren't Star Wars, so I'm sticking it here.
First up, Men Who Stare At Goats. This is a comedy coming out staring George Clooney and Ewan McGregor (starwars connection #1). It'll be out November 6, 2009. Here's the synopsis...
A reporter (Ewan McGregor), trying to lose himself in the romance of war after his marriage fails, gets more than he bargains for when he meets a special forces agent (George Clooney) who reveals the existence of a secret, psychic military unit whose goal is to end war as we know it. The founder of the unit has gone missing and the trail leads to another psychic soldier who has distorted the mission to serve his own ends.
Here's starewars connection #2: George Clooney's character claims to be a Jedi Warrior with Jedi powers
There's even a third connection: Jeff Bridges character's last name is Jango.
Check out the movie trailer to see for yourself. It looks pretty funny.
Secondly, Carrie Fisher is going to be in the new horror/slasher flick Sorority Row. She did an interview on the Late Late Show which you can catch on theforce.net.
"I believe toys resonate with us as humans, we can hold them them, it's tactile, real! They are totems for our extended beliefs and imaginations. A fetish for ideas that hold as much interest and passion as old religious relics for some. We display them in our homes. They show who we are. They are signals for similar thinking people. A way we connect with each other...and I guess thats why I do toys. That connection." -Ashley Wood
