Nerds, this week has been insanely packed with news! I had 32 news bites to sort through, which is just as tough as going through a slow news week. Now if it had been 42, I may have tried to make a connection with the meaning of life, but… Well, here we go, your 10 nerdy news bites!
Let’s begin with a curious tale… A most peculiar tale…
I honestly could not have pictured a better director to bring this life than Tim Burton, nor a better Miss Peregrine in

Disney announced that Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford will be returning for Indiana Jones 5 (slated for a July 19, 2019 release).

Also, Disney has a busy slate 2019. Wonder if this will impact other projects.
Though it may not be the complete shortlist, three actors were revealed to be in the running to play young Han Solo. Including Kingsman’s Taron Egerton (27), Transformers’ Jack Reynor (24) & Hail Caesar’s Alden Ehrenreich (26). See more here.
