J.J. Abrams Confirms STAR WARS: EPISODE VII Script Is Complete And Talks with Jesse Plemons
Commenting also on the craziest rumors he's heard, Star Wars: Episode VII director J.J. Abrams says the script is complete and that Breaking Bad star Jesse Plemons is among actors he's talked with.
Speaking at a Television Critics Association press tour, J.J. Abrams discussed Star Wars: Episode VII, and the countless rumors surrounding the highly-anticipated production. “We’re working really hard and we’ve got our script and we’re in deep prep,” says the director. “Full steam ahead, y’know.” According to Collider, he then confirmed that Jesse Plemons is in fact among the many actors he's talked with, despite the Breaking Bad star declaring his involvement only a rumor.
“He is one of the actors that we’ve talked to, yeah,” Abrams says. “It’s not often that I read about actors that I’m going to be meeting. I get to read articles about actors who were going to come in, so I get to see someone and say, “Oh, I read that I was going to see you. It’s very nice to see you.” It’s usually agents talking to people about what’s happening. It’s just a lot of noise.” When asked whether he'd like to shoot Episode VII in IMAX, the director replied: “In the right situation, I’d like to use IMAX again. The problem with IMAX is that it’s a very loud camera. It’s a very unreliable camera. Only so much film can be in the camera. You can’t really do intimate scenes with it. It’s slow. They break down often. Having said that, they’re working on digital versions of that, so there may be a version one day. But, we’re going to be shooting this next movie on film.”
J.J. Abrams was then asked to share the craziest Star Wars: Episode VII rumor he has heard so far. “There’ve been so many of them,” he 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 incredible things get thrown out that people 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.” What do you think?
Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled to start filming in spring, and release on December 18, 2015.
