November 8, 2012 - Star Wars Episode VII / Michael Arndt could be writing the screenplay
Scooped on Thursday, November 8, 2012
According to an inside source speaking with Vulture, Toy Story 3 screenwriter Michael Arndt is the leading candidate to write the screenplay for Star Wars Episode VII.
Arndt has supposedly already written a 40 to 50-page treatment for what he wants to do in Episode VII. Supposedly Arndt began writing down his treatment ideas well before George Lucas announced the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney, which would indicate that the writer had insider news of his own with which to proceed on.
Sources also tell the website that the plan is to definitively bring back actors Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher to reprise their characters of Luke Skywalker, Leia Organa and Han Solo, respectively. This news follows on this week's earlier report that Ford would consider playing Solo again if the script and director met his approval.
Also mentioned by Vulture was that Arndt's treatment will go out to a shortlist of A-list directors. Names mentioned were Steven Spielberg (Lincoln, Jurassic Park), J.J. Abrams (Star Trek, Super 8) and Brad Bird (Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol).
