In an act that probably caused him great physical and mental pain, JJ Abrams actually revealed a few things about Star Wars Episode VII while promoting his new TV series Believe. One, the script is complete and now "We're working really hard and we've got our script and we're in deep prep, full steam ahead, y'know." He also verified that he did meet with Jesse Plemons (Friday Night Lights, Breaking Bad) as "one of the actors that we’ve talked to." This doesn't mean he has been cast, just that he is probably one of dozens Abrams has probably considered for various roles. He also verified the movie will be filmed on traditional 35mm film, not IMAX or digital (the new standard). For Abrams this is the most "secrets" (for him every aspect of production is a state secret) he has revealed at once about the movie so things will likely go dormant for a few months while he recovers.
