Star Wars release date to be pushed back?

Jan 28 2013, 6:13am CST | by

J.J. Abrams hasn't committed to a 2015 'Star Wars: Episode VII' release.

The 'Star Trek' filmmaker was confirmed to direct the new Disney instalment of the sci-fi adventure last week (25.01.13), but is allegedly likely to require the planned release date to be pushed back because of his busy schedule, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

As well as several TV pilots for next autumn, the prolific producer and filmmaker is tied up with 'Star Trek: Into Darkness's May release and is committed to producing the next chapters of the 'Mission Impossible' and 'Star Trek' franchises for Paramount.

J.J. - who is known for taking his time with projects - recently said of his enviable new role: ''It really is an incredible thing. It's obviously way too early to talk specifics, but I'm excited to actually start it.''

He described taking over the franchise from creator George Lucas as ''wildly surreal'' and is looking forward to working with writer Michael Arndt to develop the script.

Disney and Lucasfilm's new boss Kathleen Kennedy said in a statement: ''It's very exciting to have J.J. aboard leading the charge as we set off to make a new 'Star Wars' movie. J.J. is the perfect director to helm this. Beyond having such great instincts as a filmmaker, he has an intuitive understanding of this franchise.

''He understands the essence of the 'Star Wars' experience, and will bring that talent to create an unforgettable motion picture.''

Christopher Nolan, Quentin Tarantino, J.J. Abrams, and More Band Together to Keep Kodak Film Alive; Deal Being Struck with Studios

Jul 30 2014 2:45pm CDT | Source: Collider

Though the rise of digital photography only began a little over a decade ago, the switch to digital has been on an exponential rise in the past few years, which has seen traditional film violently sidelined.  One might think it’d be beneficial to all to have a choice between shooting on digital or on film, and it is, but the final say really comes down to a business decision on the studio’s part.  Shooting digitally is now far cheap ...

J.J. Abrams, Christopher Nolan and Quentin Tarantino Help Keep Film Stock in Production

Jul 30 2014 1:45pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

Film ain’t dead. It is having a hard time, but that combination of polyester and emulsion that records light with such a warm, natural “feel” still has its adherents. And those acolytes, including major movie industry players such as Quentin Tarantino, Christopher Nolan, and J.J. Abrams, are doing their bit to maintain an active business relationship between studios and Kodak. Now, dealmaking revelations show that studios, pushed in part by the filmmake ...

Jul 29 2014 6:45pm CDT | Source: slash film

Simon Pegg won’t appear in Star Wars Episode VII, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be part of the film in some other way.
