JJ Abrams confirms Star Wars script is done
The screenplay for Star Wars: Episode VII is done, and at least one casting rumour for the film has some substance to it...
With the plethora of rumours surrounding Star Wars: Episode VII continuing, it makes it something of a change when something about the film is in any way concrete and confirmed. Thus, whilst director and co-writer JJ Abrams hasn't been giving much away, he has been briefly chatting about the new movie, and the current state of it.
Talking to The Wrap, Abrams confirmed that the screenplay for Star Wars: Episode VII was now in place. "We're working really hard and we've got our script and we're in deep prep", he confirmed.
He also confirmed that Breaking Bad's Jesse Plemons is one of the actors that he has met with regarding a role in the film. However, he added that "it's not often that I read about actors that I'm going to be meeting... that I get to read articles about actors who are going to come in. And so I get to see someone and say 'oh, I read that I'm going to see you'... it's usually agents talking to people about what's happening. It's a lot of noise".
As ever, his cards are being played close to his chest, but as we find out more, we'll let you know...
