Star Wars: Rogue One
A new rumor is working its way around the internet, claiming that Christopher McQuarrie has been brought on to work on the script for the movie. McQuarrie’s work was allegedly short polish and tightening of Chris Weitz’s script, but without confirmation, it’s best to treat this as a firm rumor for now. [/Film]

Speaking of returning characters, following the revelation that Brynden the Blackfish is returning, news that his nephew Edmure Tully, played by Tobias Menzies, will return for the scenes set in the Riverlands. [Watchers of the Wall]
Fan site Los Siete Reinos has released a set report on filming in Northern Ireland, confirming the arrival of two different characters into several arcs being filmed there. First off is that Gwendoline Christie has been sighted filming as Brienne of Tarth. Christie was allegedly filming at scenes being shot for Riverrun, leading to speculation that at some point Brienne will reunite with Bronn and Jamie Lannister during their story there.
Another report covers fallout from the huge battle in the North featuring an amalgam of different Northern Houses and Jon Snow—apparently Davos Seaworth will throw his lot in with Jon following the death of Stannis, as Liam Cunningham was present at the wrap party with the crew following the completion of the battle. As ever with these set reports, take it all with a sprinkling of salt for now, just in case.
Here’s a few pictures of filming in Mesa Roldan, Spain, featuring Daenerys and some Unsullied soldiers.
Grant Gustin teases Barry’s relationship with the recently-arrived Harrison Wells of Earth-2:
It’s not Eobard Thawne, it’s actually Harrison Wells. It’s the actual guy that Barry always idolized and looked up to, but [he’s] from a different world… Barry is wanting to trust him and he’s actually, in a way, quicker to trust him than he was to trust Jay.
We’re shooting [episode] nine now, and the layers are still getting peeled back. The relationship has not defined itself yet, fully.
Although the Firestorm Matrix will pass on to Franz Drameh’s Jay Jackson in next week’s episode, it looks like Robbie Amell will return to the show as Ronnie Raymond. The actor posted a new picture to his Instagram page with Drameh, with a telling comment:
