Star Wars Episodes VIII Gets A Director
Even though Star Wars: Episode VII is only a few weeks into production, Disney has moved ahead with hiring the director of Episode VIII and it is not JJ Abrams. Instead they hired Rian Johnson (Looper). The director will begin work on the script soon. Disney has indicated they hope to get the next trilogy out in an every other year fashion and I guess this move allows them to stick to that schedule as right around the time Ep 7 finishes post-production, chances are Ep 8 almost be complete with its pre-production and on verge of starting filming.
