An Oscar-nominated screenplay writer tags on to one of the biggest film projects in history!
No doubt hoping to qualm the disbelief at the film's announcement earlier this week, LucasFilm have now confirmed the writer for their upcoming science-fiction sequel Star Wars Episode VII. In the press release confirming that the man who brought us Toy Story 3, Michael Arndt, will be penning the first instalment of the new trilogy, the movie studio also have announced that the flick will be entering pre-production within the next month. For such a dramatic leap forward in progression to have taken place for the new Star Wars is rather unprecedented, but what with the release window looming just over two years away from now, perhaps it's the right move to push on so as to ensure we get to see this big new project attain all its much-deserved glory! Star Wars Episode VII will release in cinemas worldwide in 2015.
