Michael Arndt to Write Episode VII

Post by viper2843 » Fri Nov 09, 2012 8:55 pm

Looks like they are moving pretty quick with this new film. They have already selected a writer for the screenplay. Michael Arndt will be writing Episode VII. His credits include Little Miss Sunshine and Toy Story 3. This Disney/Pixar connection is already popping up. :D

Looks like they are replacing Michael Arndt with Lawrence Kasdan on writing duties. Kasdan wrote The Empire Strikes Back so I am quite happy with this change. :D

I hope the change will be a good one. I heard that the writer and the producers/directors had a lot of difficulties coming to equal ground on the vision of the movie. So hopefully there is a more harmonious resolution. I can't imagine The other writer being a very good match for a Star Wars movie so I am not that disappointed. Empire Strikes Back actually was one of my favorites of in the series. It worked out a lot of character development and I thought was very well done. So hopefully this will fill in some of the pieces that the other movies miss.

Empire was mainly George Lucas. Kasdan came in to tighten things up. I am glad he is onboard. Being he worked on the Original Trilogy, now on Rebels, and the Sequels there will be a lot of continuity there.

I am sure a lot of people will love the rebel stories. There is so much they can do and focus on, it is hard to imagine pulling it all together. We will see.
