At the Produced by conference on the Fox lot, J.J. Abram said:“Most likely we are going to be moving to London at the end of the year for the Star Wars movie,” Abrams also said that overseas shoots “drives him crazy” but plans were already in play by Disney to shoot in the UK before he came on board. J.J. Abrams also gave his thoughts of the pressure of directing such a huge franchise of Star Wars, “I think that the thing is so big and so massive to so many people that the key to moving forward is honoring but not revering what went before,”
I don’t know about you Poppers but getting J.J. Abram to at least do one of the new line of Star Wars movies is one of the best moves Disney could of done. The mans track record speaks for itself but I think his love of the franchise will me he will treat the matter with respect. Abram has not be shy about saying that he loves the franchise. J.J. Abrams could be the person to bring back some of the creditability to the franchise. No disrespect to George Lucas but the last three efforts were not the greatest for us of the original three. Lets hope the man that help reboot the Star Trek universe can so the same for Star Wars.
Also does he look like Larry Fine with glass in the picture? Just saying.

BBC America has release a teaser for the upcoming three-night mini-series.
In the Flesh tells the story of Kieren Walker, a teenager that is not comfortable with being one of the undead. Kieren committed suicide four years earlier and along with others began to rise from the dead. After months of re-rehabilitation and medication, the zombies now known as PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome) are return to their family’s. There they meet family and community rejections along with haunting flash backs of what they did while in full zombie.
I have to say this is a new treatment on the zombie craze that is sweeping the nation and I am looking forward to seeing it. Leave it to the British to come up with something different. Oh now will I get to see it on BBC Canada or find it floating on the web. I think the web will have it before we poor slobs in Canada get to see it.
The special will begin Thursday, June 6, 10:00 pm. Hell that is tonight.
