Some may say that this is a bad omen, but I wouldn’t get too worried yet. We want them to take as much care as possible on the next Star Wars film don’t we? Anyway, it seems that Disney is still yet to receive the completed Star Wars Episode VII script. Speaking at a Variety breakfast, Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn mentioned that the script was still being reworked. Little Miss Sunshine writer Michael Arndt originally had a treatment prepared when Disney purchased Lucasfilm in 2012. He then worked with J.J. Abrams on a second draft. Then later on, it was reported that Lawrence Kasdan [The Empire Strikes Back] was working on another draft with Abrams. The reworking of the script means that it has been delayed and is currently expected to arrive in January.

Speaking at a Variety breakfast, Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn also revealed that the film will have an estimated budget of at least $200 million, and confirmed that Disney plan to release a Star Wars film every year, including tales from the on-going saga and spin-offs. This sounds a bit like overkill even to this Star Wars fan, but the on-going popularity of the universe dreamt up by George Lucas means that Disney will probably be rolling in it for decades to come.

Star Wars Episode VII is scheduled for a December 18, 2015 cinema release. It is yet to announce any official castings, though of course countless rumours are flying around!

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
