Star Wars: Episode VII News and Rumors
I know, I know, the Disney bought Lucasfilm for 4 billion
has kind of acted as the goto thread for Star Wars VII, but I also figured that we would need a dedicated thread once we started getting more concrete information than the rumors and vague info from Lucasfilm. So why now? Well, SW7 may now have it's director. Multiple sources are reporting that Lucasfilm has tapped J.J. Abrams to helm the new Star Wars movie.
Here's the original story according to the Wrap.
Apparently Kathleen Kennedy lead the charge on getting Abrams, but also considered Ben Affleck for the position. Since J.J. Abrams is finishing up Star Trek: Into the Darkness
and Disney is looking at a 2015 release, he will be pressed to work quickly with screen writer Michael Ardnt to get the screen play together.
