This is such surprising news because we all know that they haven’t formally announced the whole cast yet and we also do know that the script is not yet done.

“It’s actually there now. It’s all about the screenplay. It has to be screenplay, screenplay, screenplay,” Horn added when asked about the screenplay.

Aside from the “Star Wars: Episode VII” shooting confirmation, Horn also confirmed that the said film will take place 35 years after the original trilogy to match its release date on December 2015.

When asked about the cast, he just said that they’re not done with casting for the film. He also said that casting has been the hardest task to get the movie rolling.

There have been a lot of rumours about the “Star Wars: Episode VII” casting. Some speculate that Adam Driver (“Girls”) will play the villain and there are also talks with Lupita Nyong’o (“12 Years a Slave”) as the female lead.

“Patience you must have,” quipped Horn in article on The Hollywood Reporter.
