Lawrence Kasdan & Simon Kinberg To Script Star Wars Episode 8 And 9!

Deadline have heard some interesting possibilities for Episode 8 and 9 writers. If right all Star Wars fans should be more than happy!

After the great move to hire Michael Arndt to script Episode 7 now we hear two other possibilities for the following 2 episodes.

From Deadline:

 I’ve heard Disney has approached Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg and I believe it is to get the ball rolling on the subsequent installments mapped out by Lucas. Both of the scribes in question have franchise experience.
Kasdan scripted two of the original Star Wars films in the 1980 The Empire Strikes Back and the 1983 follow-up Return of the Jedi. He also scripted Raiders Of The Lost Ark for Lucas and Steven Spielberg. Kinberg’s franchise work: X-Men: First Class, Sherlock Holmes and the upcoming X-Men: Days Of Future Past which Bryan Singer will direct.

Other sources say that they not only will write but also will produce the two films. For now Disney and Lucasfilm are declining to comment. Official announcements regarding the new Star Wars will appear on, according to the studio. So stay tuned.
