To the excitement of its fans, Star Wars: Episode VII creator J.J. Abrams revealed some new information about the highly-anticipated film.
It appears that the script is done, a Breaking Bad star is in the running for a role and the film may have potential for an IMAX opening.
Abrams was in an interview with the Television Critics Association press tour when he was asked to clarify some information about the continuing series. He announced that the script was finished and they are moving "full steam ahead."
He also stated that Breaking Bad star Jesse Plemons (Todd) was someone he spoke to about a role yet nothing is official.
"He is one of the actors we talked to, yeah," Abrams said. "It's not often that I read about actors that I'm going to be meeting. I get to read articles about actors who were going to come in so I get to see someone and say, 'Oh, I read that and I was going to see you. It's very nice to see you.' It's usually agents talking to people about what's happening. It's just a lot of noise."
The creator then mentioned that he would like the film to be in IMAX although there will be some difficulties.
"The problem with IMAX is that it's a very loud camera," Abrams said. "It's a very unreliable camera. Only so much film can be in the camera. You can't really do intimate scenes with it. It's slow. They break down often. Having said that, they're working on digital versions of that so there may be a version one day. But, we're going to be shooting this next movie on film."
Star Wars: Episode VII is set to hit theaters on December 18, 2015.
