Star Wars: Episode VII to be partly shot with IMAX cameras?
The CEO of IMAX confirms talks with JJ Abrams over using IMAX cameras to shoot part of Star Wars: Episode VII...
With lots of rumours still circling about Star Wars: Episode VII, there's still a fair amount of guesswork as people try and fill in the project's many assorted blanks. But here's something that seems to have more to it: there's a plan afoot to shoot at least part of the film with IMAX cameras.
This hasn't yet been confirmed, but the CEO of IMAX, Richard Gelfond, revealed that "we are talking to JJ Abrams about the next Star Wars being used with partly IMAX cameras".
That'd be interesting, certainly, as it would be the first Star Wars film to natively use the format. JJ Abrams has used IMAX cameras before, with around 30 minutes of Star Trek Into Darkness being shot with them. You'd imagine he could have even more fun on a Star Wars movie...
