Michael Arndt to write new Star Wars movie

Nov 9 2012, 10:18am CST | by

Oscar-winning writer Michael Arndt is set to pen the screenplay for 'Star Wars: Episode VII', which starts shooting in 2014.

Michael Arndt is set to write the screenplay for 'Star Wars: Episode VII'.
The Oscar-winning writer - who is behind films such as 'Toy Story 3', 'Little Miss Sunshine' and 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire' - has penned a 40-to-50-page treatment for the film and is likely to be at least one of the writers when the Disney film project begins shooting in 2014.
According to Vulture, the studio's bosses want to bring back the three central characters of the original 'Star Wars', a much older Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo.
Harrison Ford recently admitted he is ''open'' to the idea of returning to the 'Star Wars' franchise.
The 70-year-old actor - who played Hans Solo in the first three movies of the sci-fi franchise from 1977 to 1983 - would consider reprising his role in the recently-announced 2015 sequel.
A source said: ''Harrison is open to the idea of doing the movie and he's upbeat about it, all three of them [Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher] are.''
Disney announced its purchase of Lucasfilm, the company behind the movie series - helmed by George Lucas - last month, and has revealed plans for at least three more films following on from 2005's 'Revenge Of The Sith'.

Rian Johnson, director of Brick, The Brothers Bloom and Looper, is your Star Wars: Episode VIII director. Currently there are conflicting reports about his involvement in the final film in the new trilogy, but he will at least be involved to write a treatment for Episode IX. And our response to this is that it’s expletive-worthy good news. Johnson is batting three for three, and in some ways better this than a superhero movie. If he was to continue his independence he wa ...

Is Harrison Ford On Board For Three Star Wars Movies?

Jun 17 2014 3:38am CDT | Source: movie pilot

Unfortunately, Harrison Ford has been in the news the last week for all the wrong reasons. Firstly, there were those erroneous rumors that Robert Pattinson was on board to replace Harrison Ford in both the Indiana Jones reboot and Han Solo spin-off movies, and secondly there was the shock news that Ford has broken his ankle on the set of Star Wars: Episode VII.However, this second piece of news could have inadvertently let slip another massive nugget of Star Wars information. You see, wh ...

Jun 5 2014 9:40pm CDT | Source: Screen Rant

Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford’s return to the Star Wars universe has been the new trilogy’s worst kept secret. Fisher was quoted – frequently and blatantly – as confirming the stars’ inclusion, and even Hamill confirmed talks. Then, of course, there were the rumors that J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan had worked over Michael Arndt’s Episode VII script, giving more significant roles to the original cast members. Once Hamill, Fisher, and Ford were spotted in London, it was ...
