Star Wars TV says here that George Lucas is officially Casting for the Live Action Star Wars TV series. They quote as saying: "A live-action TV series set in the 'Star Wars' cosmos has been an elusive, tantalizing prospect for years. News of the potential production first surfaced in 2005 while George Lucas was promoting 'Revenge of the Sith.' Work on the 'Clones Wars' animated feature film and Cartoon Network series, though, took creative precedence. In late 2007, Lucas revealed that he and his team were about to begin writing scripts for the live-action show. Now MTV News has learned that casting for the series is currently underway. According to Lucas, the show will focus on minor characters from the saga and be set in the time period between 'Revenge of the Sith' (Episode III) and the original 'Star Wars' (Episode IV). The action will follow the Rebel Alliance as it slowly gains strength against the Empire. There will be Stormtroopers, but no Jedi or Darth Vader will appear on screen. As he did with the 'Clone Wars' series, Lucas will write and shoot an entire year's worth of episodes before looking for a cable channel on which to air the series."


17 years later there will be a sequel to "Hard Boiled" Filmed by Chow Yun Fat's production company, or so says Slash film in an article here. The sequel may or may not be based on the video game.
