STAR WARS EPISODE VII: Apparently Director Search Down To "A Couple Of Candidates"

STAR WARS EPISODE VII: Apparently Director Search Down To "A Couple Of Candidates"

Producer Frank Marshall - who's wife Kathleen Kennedy is president of Lucasfilm - has revealed to MTV that he knows who is in line to helm the highly anticipated follow up to Return Of The Jedi. Of course, he isn't spilling the details!..



We recently found out that Oscar winning Toy Story 3 scribe Michael Arndt would be writing the new movies, but what fans really want to know is who will take over from George Lucas as the director on the Star Wars trilogy nobody ever thought we would see. So far pretty much every director with some sci-fi experience or geek cred has been rumored or asked whether they'd be interested in the gig, but we haven't had any real solid info as of yet. Well, we still don't have any names for you, but producer Frank Marshall says that Disney have at least settled on a (very short) shortlist. When asked if he knew would be behind the new movie he replied - "I do, but I can't reveal it, or I won't be alive tomorrow.", adding that although he has no idea when an official announcement will be made, he does know that they have "honed in on a couple of candidates". So, it shouldn't be too long before we hear a name or two to go along with this - hopefully.
