Lucasfilm Hire Empire Strikes Back Scribe Lawrence Kasdan For New Star Wars – UPDATED | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
Also sought after, according to the same report, is Simon Kinberg, co-writer of some X-Men pictures, including the next one, and such mid-rung genre fare as Mr. And Mrs. Smith.
The Hollywood Reporter say that the deals have been locked and that Kasdan and Kinberg are now on board. What isn’t set, just yet, is which of them will write which episode. They will both also receive producing credits – and presumably do some producing work. Officially speaking.
