Warner Bros. is moving forward on a new installment of The Fugitive, but they have not confirmed or denied that stars of the original 1993 hit, Harrison Ford and Tommy Lee Jones will return. At this time, it is not known if this is a reboot, remake or straight up sequel. Christina Hodson, who wrote the now-in-production drama Shut In starring Naomi Watts, will pen the screenplay.
The Fugitive is viewed as one of the best TV-to-Movie adaptations ever made, based on the original 1963 ABC series that ran for four seasons. The show starred David Janssen as Dr. Richard Kimble, who was accused of killing his wife. He goes on the run, searching for the one-armed man he believes is actually responsible for his wife's murder. The show culminated in a finale that was viewed by nearly half of the population who owned TVs at the time. Harrison Ford starred as Dr. Richard Kimble in the movie, and his tale was resolved in the third act. Tommy Lee Jones, however, playing the marshal that tracked down Kimble, returned as Samuel Gerard in the 1998 follow-up U.S. Marshals, which co-starred Wesley Snipes and Robert Downey Jr.Read More

National Geographic has released the first trailer for their upcoming documentary Living in the Age of Airplanes, which is narrated by longtime pilot Harrison Ford. The airplane has changed our world, but do we really understand exactly how much? Living in the Age of Airplanes reminds us how profoundly this amazing invention has changed the way we do just about everything. It also renews our appreciation for the airplane and stunningly conveys the wonder and grandeur of flying.
Not that long ago, traveling between continents was a migration. Now, on any given day, 100,000 flights transport people and products between any two points on Earth in a matter of hours. Indeed, the airplane may be the closest thing we have to a time machine. Filmed in 18 countries across all 7 continents, the film explores the countless ways the airplane affects our lives (even when we don't fly). With a fascinating take on history, breathtaking visuals, soaring music, and a truly unique perspective, Living in the Age of Airplanes shows the airplane in a fresh light as it takes audiences on a wondrous trip around the globe.Read More

Harrison Ford, who reprises his role as Han Solo in Star Wars: The Force Awakens later this year, is in serious condition at a local Los Angeles hospital after he suffered multiple head injuries in a plane crash earlier today. The actor, a longtime and avid pilot, was flying a vintage two-seat plane today, when something apparently went wrong and he crash-landed at the Penmar Golf Course in Mar Vista, California. The actor did walk away from the crash, but suffered multiple head injuries, and was treated by two doctors who happened to be on the golf course, until emergency personnel arrived and transported him to a nearby hospital.
Sources first described the actor's injuries as "critical," but NBC News' sources stressed that his injuries "are better characterized as serious, including lacerations to the head and possible fractures." The crash happened at approximately 2:25 PM, shortly after the plane took off from the Santa Monica Airport, according to Ian Gregor of the Federal Aviation Administration. We'll keep you posted with more news on Harrison Ford's condition, and you can take a look at a photo of his crashed plane below.Read More

Since Disney hasn't released any official statement about how the production on Star Wars: Episode VII will be affected after Harrison Ford's on-set injury, a number of rumors have been circulating, including yesterday's report that Disney and LucasFilm are considering a production shut-down until the actor can get back on his feet. Today, we have a new report from Page Six, which includes unconfirmed details that Oscar Isaac may have an expanded role in the sequel because of this injury, although Disney and other sources contradict these claims.
All we do know is that production on Star Wars: Episode VII is still under way in London, under the direction of J.J. Abrams, that is, until the next unconfirmed rumor tells us otherwise.Read More
