Wow, the Star Wars rumours are coming in so fast now that they are debunked before they even make the sites!
The latest such rumour broke a few hours ago with rumours that self confessed Star Wars freak, JJ Abrams buddy and current Scotty on the Enterprise Simon Pegg – yes, we love him too – would be involved in the new trilogy. Honestly, we’ve taken this as a given anyway. However, Pegg himself has denied the rumours, very swiftly we might add and tweeted: ‘No idea where this silly rumour about me attached to the new Star Wars film came from but I can confirm that it’s absolute Bantha poodoo.’
Hmmmmmmmm… ok, we’ll buy it. For now, but we’ll bet a stack of Republic Credits there’s truth to this. Somewhere.
Anyway, a more interesting and as yet undenied rumour, is that Children Of Men and Harry Potter And The Prisoner of Azkaban director Alfonso Cuaron is set to direct either Episode VIII or IX.
We know, we know, it’s all rumour but these ones kinda feel, well, right. Take with a pinch of salt for now, but as always, watch this space…
