Now that George Lucas has confirmed there will be more Star Wars films, who will be among the cast?
JJ Abrams will be directing “Star Wars: Episode VII.”
George Lucas talked to Bloomsberg Business Week and said: “We had already signed Mark and Carrie and Harrison—or we were pretty much in final stages of negotiation. So I called them to say, ‘Look, this is what’s going on.’” He paused and said, “Maybe I’m not supposed to say that. I think they want to announce that with some big whoop-de-do, but we were negotiating with them. I won’t say whether the negotiations were successful or not.”
The cast is already off to a good start, and now Lucas and Abrams just need to come up with a solid story that the fans won’t be disappointed by.
