Star Wars: Episode VII is scheduled to resume filming later this month, according to THR.

Production on the highly anticipated addition to the Star Wars film franchise was put on a 2-week hiatus earlier this month to accommodate star Harrison Ford, who sustained an injury on set in June. The 71-year-old actor, who is reprising his role as Han Solo, suffered a broken leg while shooting his scenes at Pinewood Studios and subsequently underwent surgery.

Drew Struzan's Star Wars Posters

Disney has made poster artist Drew Struzan an offer he probably cannot refuse. While details on what Star Wars fans could see in Episode VII remain under wraps, Disney has made a few calls out to the man who drew the posters for the first six Star Wars films, to possibly draw new posters for Episodes VII-IX. Now nothing is official, but fans would certainly like to see the poster artist back at work to draw up some very exciting posters for one of the greatest sci-fi franchises of all time.

Fanhattan had an opportunity to talk to the legendary poster artist about his work, retirement, and future projects.

Here’s what Struzan had to say…

Brad Bird

Every week we seem to be inundated with Star Wars news and rumors. The latest came from Carrie Fisher talking about her role in Star Wars: Episode VII, something turned out to just be a joke, and an unenthused Billy Dee Williams being saying he’d come back. Now, there is more to report on as The Incredibles director Brad Bird has addressed his fans who are calling him out to direct Episode VII and how many Star Wars films LucasFilm wants to produce a year.

Bird is now a part of an exclusive club whose membership includes Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, Zack Snyder, and possibly J.J. Abrams. Bird has confirmed that he will NOT be directing Star Wars: Episode VII. He did confirm that his 1952 film starring George Clooney will be under the sci-fi genre. But for anyone who had Bird on their top ten list, you may want to cross his name off now.

With all Star Wars news that has happened in the past few weeks, many are wondering when we will hear the final word that says, “this person will direct Star Wars: Episode VII.” It may seem like with every bit of Star Wars news that breaks we are no closer to finding out who it is, but Frank Marshall, movie producer and husband to LucasFilm’s President Kathleen Kennedy, says that the list of candidates has narrowed.

In the past few weeks Steven Spielberg, Quentin Tarantino, J.J. Abrams, and Zack Snyder have all pulled themselves out of the running to direct Episode VII. However, Jon Favreau and Colin Tervorrow have expressed enthusiasm for directing, but stopped short of saying they wanted the job. It’s not known if the director who signs on will be attached to the entire trilogy that Toy Story 3 scribe Michael Ardnt has written. With the way some of these franchise films are handled it’s not likely we will see different people directing the respective chapters of the new saga.

‘Toy Story 3’ Michael Arndt Reportedly Penned Treatment For New ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy

The fact that Star Wars: Episode VII could be an original story opens the door for new possibilities to take new characters to far off worlds that we have yet to see. Many of the original characters would not appropriately fit the age of their respective characters even if they decided to base Episode VII on some of Lucas’s earlier works or the works that have already been created. But with no confirmation on where the movie could go, everything about the plot for the film is just pure speculation.

However the film may have found its writer to pen the screenplay. Disney is talking to Toy Story 3 scribe Michael Arndt to pen the script for Episode VII. Seems like a nice fit, Arndt did write an excellent script for a great movie. Arndt also wrote the script for Catching Fire, the sequel to The Hunger Games.

Zack Snyder Says He Wouldn’t Direct Any Episodes Of The Next ‘Star Wars’ Trilogy

Zack Snyder

As many await the official word on who will direct Star Wars Episode 7, Man of Steel director Zack Snyder has officially taken himself out of the running of directing any of the upcoming Episodes. According to a report from the LA Times, Snyder, who has helmed major films like Dawn of the Dead and Watchman, said that he wouldn’t like to direct any of the remaining episodes in the trilogy because it would be a “slippery slope.” He added, “It’s a whole other mythological experiment I’m excited to see, but it’s a lot of effort.”

Of course there are other directors who Disney might be considering to helm Episode 7. Safety Not Guaranteed director Colin Trevorrow is the latest name to be rumored to direct the film. However, the job will most likely go to X-Men: First Class director Matthew Vaughn, who suddenly left his job as director of X-Men: Days Of Futures Past for no apparent reason. His departure came on the heels of Disney’s groundbreaking deal with Lucasfilm. That doesn’t mean that he has the job, but many are coming to that conclusion. So as of right now, all of that is pure speculation.
