After a tough battle between balancing writers and arguing a release date with Disney, J.J. Abrams has certainly had a tough time on his hands with the upcoming chapter in the Star Wars saga.
However, after many months of uncertainty amongst fans due to the very constraint schedule, Abrams has recently come out and confirmed that the script has been finished. And when asked about whether the filming of the film would be begin in England this May, Abrams had this to say...
"That's the current plan," "We have our script and we're full steam ahead. Have script, will travel."
"We can't talk about story yet," said the director, who plans to travel to England soon to begin work on the seventh film in the long-running saga. As far as casting, he had no details but said they will come "soon, and I look forward to that so that we can get past it and we can get on with it." -USAToday
It looks like Abrams is just ready to get this movie made and out, given the giant buzz about this film, with a new casting rumor every three days. Speaking of rumors, Abrams had this to say...
“There’ve been so many of them,” he said. “It’s amazing to see how many there are. … But it’s sweet because it shows that there’s an interest in this movie that we all obviously know is there. But it is an incredible thing to see how many crazy things get thrown out that people often then write commentaries about. How happy they are, how disappointed they are about something that is completely false. It’s a lot of noise, frankly.” - TheWrap
The way I see it, the man has alot on his plate, and with the pressure from Disney and fans, people just keep adding more to it. The man has just over a year to make a movie that would normally take over two years to create the biggest film of his live and will forever make or break his career as a director. Give the man a break.
Episode VII will come out, and if it's great, it's great. If it's terrible, it's terrible. Either way, just relax and enjoy the fact that we're getting a new Star Wars film that people didn't think was ever going to happen.
Star Wars Episode VII comes out December 18th, 2015
