MOVIES: Star Wars VII has Found Writer


The upcoming new Star Wars trilogy coming from Disney has found an Oscar-winning writer to pen the script, and has already sent in a treatment for the three. For details, take the jump.

Deadline has confirmed that Micael Arndt, writer of Toy Story 3, Little Miss Sunshine, and the upcoming Hunger Games: Catching Fire, is going to be the man behind the next three Star Wars films. Apparently he had been brought on by Lucasfilms months ago to work on this exact project and as such has had some time to percolate into the “lengthy treatment” Disney CEO Bob Iger was speaking of. This is great news for the franchise as it reveals a less super-rushed intent than originally put forth.
