Director J.J. Abrams says the script for Star Wars: Episode VII is finished. Finally something that’s not a rumor!
Abrams told The Wrap “We’re working really hard and we’ve got our script and we’re in deep prep,” he said. “Full steam ahead, y’know.”
Abrams also addressed the rumor that Breaking Bad actor Jesse Plemons, is in talks for a role in the film. While promoting his new TV series “Believe,“ Abrams spoke to the Television Critics Association on Sunday, confirming that Jesse Plemons is in fact one of the actors he has spoken to.
Abrams went on to say this about Plemons: “He is one of the actors that we’ve talked to, yeah, but, you know. 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.”
The Wrap also asked Abrams which rumor was the “craziest” that he has heard.
“There’ve been so many of them,” Abrams said. “It’s amazing to see how many there are. … But it’s sweet because it shows that there’s an interest in this movie that we all obviously know is there. But it is an incredible thing to see how many crazy things get thrown out that people often then write commentaries about. How happy they are, how disappointed they are about something that is completely false. It’s a lot of noise, frankly.”
J.J. Abrams also said the film will most likely not be shot on IMAX due to them being “a very unreliable camera.”
Star Wars: Episode VII is set to release Dec. 18, 2015.
