Abrams, Kasdan for screenplay

24 Oct, 2013

Lawrence Kasdan and director J.J. Abrams are announced to be writing the screenplay for Star Wars: Episode VII. Lucasfilm president, Kathleen Kennedy, says

I am very excited about the story we have in place and thrilled to have Larry and J.J. working on the script. There are very few people who fundamentally understand the way a Star Wars story works like Larry, and it is nothing short of incredible to have him even more deeply involved in its return to the big screen. J.J. of course is an incredible storyteller in his own right. Michael Arndt has done a terrific job bringing us to this point and we have an amazing filmmaking and design team in place already prepping for production.
