A bit of Star Wars 7 casting and hiatus news was announced today, so I figured I’d combine that with a few other SW7 tidbits on a slow Sunday. First, the official news that Crystal Clarke and Pip Anderson (both pictured above) have joined the cast of the J.J. Abrams directed Star Wars: Episode VII.  Also, according to the official announcement, there will be a two week hiatus from shooting in August to allow the schedule to work around Harrison Ford‘s leg injury.

Meanwhile, Kevin Smith has found a way to keep talking about the film (without saying all that much) despite the fact that he signed a fat NDA that initially only allowed him to post an instagram video of himself crying. Hit the jump for that and for some “leaked” Star Wars Episode 7 footage.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Postpones His Return to Acting; CRY MACHO and TERMINATOR On Hold Indefinitely

Amidst the firestorm that has engulfed his personal life, Arnold Schwarzenegger has decided to postpone indefinitely what was once his full-speed ahead return to acting. TheWrap reports that the former Governor/actor has instructed Creative Artists Agency to “put all acting projects on hold” as he attempts to turn over a new leaf that doesn’t involve lying to his family for more than a decade. In a written statement, Schwarzenegger’s team says:

“Governor Schwarzenegger is focusing on personal matters and is not willing to commit to any production schedules or timelines. This includes Cry Macho, the Terminator franchise and other projects under consideration. We will resume discussions when Governor Schwarzenegger decides.”

In addition to Cry Macho and a Terminator sequel, news of Schwarzenegger’s delayed return also means that his animated TV series, The Governator, is also on hold for the time being (a tough pill to swallow, no doubt). For now, there is no way of knowing exactly how long the actor’s return will be put off. Nevertheless, it does seem as if the ball is entirely in his court meaning that, as soon as he’s ready to return to acting, there will most likely be projects waiting for him on the other side. Whether or not it will be the same ones listed above may depend on whether Cry Macho director Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer) and Terminator franchise rights-holder, Megan Ellison, want to wait around for Schwarzenegger to sort things out.

Arnold Schwarzenegger to Star in Drama CRY MACHO before Doing TERMINATOR Sequel

A few days ago, we reported that Arnold Schwarzenegger was planning to return to the Terminator franchise with Fast Five director Justin Lin at the helm. However, acting robotically on purpose won’t be Schwarzenegger’s first post-governorship gig.  Vulture reports that Schwarzenegger has signed on to star in the drama Cry Macho for director Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer).  The film, based on the novel the late N. Richard Nash (who also wrote the screenplay before he died in 2000), would see Schwarzenegger as “a damaged-goods horse trainer who’s just been ignominiously put out to pasture by his feckless boss. In exchange for some retirement money, the broken — and broke — horseman agrees to kidnap the boss’ 11-year-old son from his rich Mexican ex-wife. Things take an unexpected turn, however, when the ex-wife is all too glad to be rid of her juvenile delinquent.”  Oh, good.  Schwarzenegger will be acting opposite a kid.  Those movies always turn out so well.
