Bryan Burk discusses working on “Star Wars VII”

May 7, 2013

In an interview with Collider, Bad Robot’s Bryan Burk offers an update on the hugely anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII from Disney/Lucasfilm and director J.J. Abrams. He confirms that they are planning to begin production in early 2014 for a previously announced summer 2015 release, and a location hasn’t been officially named yet. However, the current priority in the production is (obviously) the script, which Abrams is working closely with Michael Arndt on. 

“We’re progressing on a schedule to hopefully begin next year, or the beginning of next year, and the location is still kind of floating around in the air all depending on script and a whole bunch of other issues. As I just said, everything is kind of a free-flowing thing, and when we feel like the story level on this script and everything is really coming together and schedules are all working and pieces line up, we prowl ahead, and Star Wars will be no different.” 

He also talks about the level of interest he has in the project, saying that it’s on par with others’. “I mean, it’s Star Wars. It’s something that obviously has successfully been handed down from generation to generation in the last 40 years. If I weren’t working on the project, I’d have the same interest as everyone else because it’s something that I, too, am looking forward to seeing where the franchise goes next.”

I really can’t wait for some casting news and all the behind the scenes images/videos to come in the next year. 


And here’s this… just because it will haunt you.
