    Abrams, Kasdan Take Over "Star Wars" Script [​IMG]


    Director J.J. Abrams and "The Empire Strikes Back" co-writer Lawrence Kasdan have taken over scripting duties on "Star Wars: Episode VII" at Disney.

    Michael Arndt ("Little Miss Sunshine," "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire") has been working on both this script and treatments for the other two films in the new trilogy since last November.

    Now, Abrams and Kasdan will continue moving forward with his work. In a statement, LucasFilm boss Kathleen Kennedy says:

    "I am very excited about the story we have in place and thrilled to have Larry and J.J. working on the script.
    There are very few people who fundamentally understand the way a Star Wars story works like Larry, and it is nothing short of incredible to have him even more deeply involved in its return to the big screen.
    J.J. of course is an incredible storyteller in his own right. Michael Arndt has done a terrific job bringing us to this point and we have an amazing filmmaking and design team in place already prepping for production."

    Filming is slated to begin at the UK's Pinewood Studios in the spring of next year.

    I just read this. Good news and as long as they keep Lucas away from the script and never call Lindelof I think the movie can be epic. Arndt was probably hired to just come up with the main story and outline and Kasdan and Abrams were going to finish it off anyway.

    Yeah, I'm way too old to possibly be concerned about this, so whatever. :no:

    Good news. Kasdan knows how to write Star Wars. He makes it all dark and twisted. I'm curious to see if family friendly Disney will actually go that route. Or if they'll just make it be all about muppets and rainbows and shit.

    Dave you should love Star Wars. If Hollywood made your life story it would also start out, "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away"
