Recently Funny or Die did a joke campaign about the Back to the Future hoverboard, and some actually believed this could be a reality. While it was a nicely executed joke, there is a new special that explores the possibilities of a real hoverboard, as well as the technology of Star Wars.
There were rumors some months back that JJ Abrams was going to leave the Star Wars franchise. That hasn’t come to pass, but now reports have surfaced that Michael Arndt, who also penned Toy Story 3, is leaving the project, and JJ Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan are taking over the screenplay from here.
Rumors hit the net all the time, and some of them actually turn out to be true.
The general consensus among Star Wars fans is that Empire Strikes Back remains the best of the series, the success of which is often attributed to the screenwriting talents of Lawrence Kasdan.
It wouldn't be too much of a shock or surprise if you told me you didn't know there was a sequel to American Graffiti.
