#StarWars Part VII: Roy's Random Rumour Round Up


Samauel L. Jackson says, repeatedly, that he wants to be in it. HuffingtonPost.com

Michael Arndt, Ocsar awarded writer of Toy Story 3, will write it. Via StarWars.com

Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi) and Simon Kinberg (Sherlock Holmes) to write/produce subsequent sequels.  Via Forbes.com and NME.com

Matthew Vaughn (Star Dust, Kick Ass) to direct according to Jason Flemyng.  Via Guardian.com

Yavin 4 (the jungle rebel base in A New Hope) Jedi Temple “plot” misreported by Reuters.

The Great Lucas himself is not going to be involved.  Via NME.com  (Though I bet he will be, at least in some form).

And finally, the best news (other than praying that the writing is good), is that Harrison Ford*, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are “open” to returning in 2015.  Via Entertainment Weekly.  Yes that’s 2015.  Blimey.


*I based a large part of my tween self-image on Solo.  My dad’s Post Office waistcoat was purloined in his honour.  Winston, if you are reading this, that is what was up with the waistcoat. It was cool.
