It looks like the slow news weeks are finally behind us, and as the further we get into the new year the more updates we have on exciting new movie and TV projects. This week we saw some movement on films like James Bond 24, Sandman, and Fast and Furious 7; heard yet another glimmer of hope for a Dredd sequel from Karl Urban, and learned that NBC was reviving a show that was, for its first season anyway, a worldwide phenomenon. We also have a few hints about more Indiana Jones films and may finally, finally have a casting announcement for Star Wars Episode VII. Not even JJ Abrams can keep everything in his mystery box forever! But hey, what are you listening to me for? See for yourself and jump right in to this week's updates...
