Del Toro to the dark side

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket -

Beni­cio Del Toro could be about to bring dis­rup­tion to the Force as re­ports sug­gest the Puerto Ri­can ac­tor is be­ing lined up for vil­lain­ous du­ties in Star Wars: Episode VIII.

The Usual Sus­pects star (pic­tured, right) would join di­rec­tor Rian John­son for the as-yet-un­ti­tled 2017 re­lease.

From Jedis to ge­nies, and Dis­ney have an­nounced plans for a live-ac­tion pre­quel to their hit 1992 an­i­ma­tion Aladdin.

The new film will tell the story of how the clas­sic tale’s wish-grant­ing ge­nie – voiced in the orig­i­nal by the late Robin Wil­liams – ends up trapped in­side his lamp.
