Lawrence Kasdan

  1. Judi Dench Stars In Our Favorite Bonkers Star Wars Rumor

    May The Force Be With You

    We also have some other delish unfounded Star Wars rumors (co-starring everyone's favorite bounty hunter—no, not IG-88), and a smattering of actual legit info from J.J. Abrams.

  2. Bad Robot Tweeted the First Star Wars: Episode VII Production Photo, This Is Happening

    R2-D2! We're suddenly finding it very difficult to focus.

    J.J. Abrams' production company, Bad Robot, just tweeted the first production photo from Star Wars: Episode VII, and it's R2-D2! Have we said how excited we are that Episode VII has Empire Strikes Back writer Lawrence Kasdan? Or because the original Star Wars cast is involved? It's an unhealthy amount of excited.

  3. Star Wars: Episode VII Has a Release Date, Doesn’t Have Saoirse Ronan, Will Have 3D

    May The Force Be With You

    Plus J.J. Abrams had some things to say about why original writer Michael Arndt was replaced by himself and Lawrence Kasdan. What kind of morning is this? We've heard official word on two separate Episode VII rumors, promoting one to the realm of fact and relegating the other to Not Gonna Happenville. At this rate I'm half expecting something really good to come out by the end of the day, like Lucasfilm saying "Screw it, we're making all the rest of the movies about Mara Jade."

  4. The Star Wars: Episode VII Team Would Like An Extension On Their Homework, Please. To 2016.

    May The Force Be With You

    Just last week we had word Star Wars: Episode VII was switching writers. As you can imagine, that didn't instill many of us with hopeful thoughts about the next installment of the franchise, due in theaters 2015. As it turns out, the folks working on the film seem to be a little concerned as well. So much so they asked for the film to be pushed back a year. But Disney's CEO said no.

  5. I Have A Bad Feeling About This: Star Wars: Episode VII Switches Writers

    May The Force Be With You

    My first thought upon reading that J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan are taking over script duties for Star Wars: Episode VII was: "Wuh-oh. That can't be a good sign. Why change writers unless there's a problem with the script?" Second thought: "Well at least it's not Damon Lindelof, Roberto Orci, and Alex Kurtzman."

  6. J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan Will Write Star Wars Episode VII

    This is a great move.

    Star Wars Episode VII will be written by Empireand Jedi co-screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan, but he won't be working alone. Kasdan will be joined in his writing duties by J.J. Abrams who is also directing the film. This should put to rest any worries about how VII will fit into the Star Wars universe.

  7. George Lucas, c. 1981, Tells Us His Plans For the Star Wars Prequels, Where the Force Is Like Yoga

    May The Force Be With You

    A transcript of an early '80s conference with George Lucas, wherein he discusses his prequel ideas with Jedi director Richard Marquand, Empire and Jedi writer Lawrence Kasdan, and Empire and Jedi producer Howard Kazanjian, has made its way into the wild as part of the upcoming book The Making of Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. Some of it's pretty similar to what we ended up seeing. Some of it isn't. And some of it involves yoga. No, not Yoda. Yoga.

  8. Lawrence Kasdan Wants to “Start Fresh” For His Star Wars Spinoff, Won’t Pull from the Expanded Universe

    May The Force Be With You

    The Empire Strikes Back scribe Lawrence Kasdan is one of the writers assigned to those recently confirmed Star Wars spinoffs. We don't yet know who Kasdan's movie will be about—Boba Fett, Han Solo, and Yoda have all been rumored, though it could be someone else—but whoever it is, he's kissing anything from their Expanded Universe storyline goodbye.

  9. Disney Confirms Standalone Star Wars Films; How Long Before They Get to Boba Fett: The Movie? [UPDATE: Not Long]

    May The Force Be With You

    You know they will. A few months back we heard the rumor that The Empire Strikes Back writer Lawrence Kasdan and X-Men: First Class' Simon Kinberg would be writing standalone films separate from the Star Wars sequel trilogy. And now Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed it.

  10. Here’s How Kathleen Kennedy, Producer and Studio Exec Extraordinaire, Convinced J.J. Abrams to do Star Wars

    I will make it legal!

    The Hollywood Reporter has an in-depth of profile of LucasFilm President Kathleen Kennedy, and while the whole thing is worth a read—Kennedy "know[s] the difference between a Colt .45 and a Colt .45 Gold Cup" and started dating her future husband, Raiders of the Lost Ark producer Frank Marshall, behind the back of Kennedy's long-time collaborator Steven Spielberg ("I wanted Kathy to be working with me as my assistant and Frank to be producing the movie, and never the twain shall meet," recalled Spielberg, "But you can't stop love.")—what caught my attention as an inveterate Star Wars nerd was something different. Namely, the story of the secret meetings where Kennedy got J.J. Abrams to direct Star Wars: Episode VII.
