Lawrence Kasdan to write new Star Wars films?

November 21st, 2012 by bash Comments

Deadline are reporting that Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi scribe Lawrence Kasdan (above right) will be working on Star Wars: Episodes VIII and IX.

Disney are set to approach the screenwriter as well as X-Men: First Class writer Simon Kinberg to work on the two films straight away. Michael Arndt was recently confirmed as the screenwriter for Star Wars: Episode VII.

While there has been no confirmation from Disney/Lucasfilm we have to say we’re very excited if this story is true.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
