Star Wars: Episode VII set to shoot from May
JJ Abrams will be shooting his new Star Wars film from May through to September, it's been revealed...
It looks as if Star Wars: Episode VII is finally at a point where it's ready to shoot, following a development period that's not been without its challenges. Originally set to start shooting in January, filming was pushed back, and the release date - once planned for summer 2015 - has now been confirmed for December 18th 2015.
It looks as though JJ Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan might now have their screenplay in place though, as Hitfix is reporting - from multiple sources - that the film is set to start full production from May of this year. The shoot will then go through until September. Furthermore, "most principal casting on the film is complete, with many announcements still to come".
We'd imagine most of those announcements will be held back for the inevitable start of photography press announcement. But any substantive news in the meantime we'll pass your way.
