Director J.J. Abrams said The next chapter in the Star Wars saga is just about ready to shoot as reveals that the screenplay for Star Wars: Episode VII is complete.
“We’re working really hard and we’ve got our script and we’re in deep prep,” Abrams tellsTheWrap. “Full steam ahead, y’know?”
Abrams also responded to a question about the recent rumor that “Breaking Bad” star Jesse Plemons has read for a role. Although Abrams confirms that Plemons has auditioned, he also cautions fans that a lot more is going on behind the scenes than makes it to the headlines, refusing to disclose whether or not Plemons is actually anywhere close to a role.
