UPDATE 2! Pic of Daisy Ridley, J.J. Abrams & John Boyega. Is Edgar Wright Involved with Future Star Wars Project?

J.J. Daisy & John

John Boyega’s latest post on Instagram really doesn’t need any commenting. It’s simply tagged TEAM! In the background you can see director Edgar Wright who also made a very curious hint?





It’s curious that Scott Pilgrim writer-director Edgar Wright is visible in the background. And here’s Wright’s latest tweet: (via @sapienstellaris)



Was that a hint or a joke? You might remember 2 years ago Abram and Wright were rumored to join forces for a secret project called “Collider”. Abrams was expected to produce, and Mark Protosevich (“I Am Legend”) was supposed to be writing the screenplay.  


Of course this was long time ago. Since then Abrams got the first Star Wars gig and Wright dropped from Marvel’s Ant Man. Could Wright be directing one of the spin-off movies or maybe Episode IX? Edgar Wright is one of my favorite directors and his possible involvement with Star Wars would be great news indeed.  





Edgar Wright shared some more photos:

    At least they obviously seem to have natural chemistry and closeness between actors and director. Which can’t hurt production that’s for sure.

  • August 19, 2014 at 11:07 am

    hells…. YESSSS!!!! qxD

  • August 19, 2014 at 11:14 am

    Wish I were there!

  • August 19, 2014 at 12:24 pm

    Love the Tshirt… 😀 are you in Star Wars, John?. XD

  • August 19, 2014 at 12:29 pm

    They seem to be having fun. That is always a good thing, I guess.

  • August 19, 2014 at 12:48 pm

    Alright, as early as now, I call dibs on Daisy.

  • August 19, 2014 at 12:52 pm

    I hope those curtains make it into the film.

  • August 19, 2014 at 1:31 pm

    That be a lot of teeth! I hope there not in the film.

  • August 19, 2014 at 2:56 pm

    where is the Lando mustache? if he has a small afro he needs a eddie murphy mustache.

  • August 19, 2014 at 3:17 pm

    if edgar wright did a spinoff film, it could be the greatest thing ever.


  • August 19, 2014 at 3:24 pm

    I can’t believe I haven’t even considered edgar wright for a star wars movie yet. Screw a spinoff film, get him to co-write with Rian and/or whoever’s doing ep 9.

      • August 19, 2014 at 5:23 pm

        Having 2 writers working on a script is not overdoing it.. When Pixar films are being written, the writer(s) have constant story and revision conferences with meetups of sometimes around 15 other writers.

        • August 20, 2014 at 10:14 am

          SW had Lucas,William Huck and his wife Gloria not to mentioned Depalma for opening crawl.
          Empire had Bracket, Lucas and Kasden.
          There are always more than one with any Star wars episode. And I would bet money on JJ having Lindelof collaborating ( it has been mentioned in a recent interview with Damon that he was with JJ For 2 weeks during the Script phase)
          We already had Lucas, Arndt, JJ,Kasden, and a ton of round table meetings.

  • August 19, 2014 at 4:33 pm

    Damn more lens flares. The movie is doomed.

  • August 19, 2014 at 4:51 pm

    There was this meeting last week with all the upcoming SW writers and directors in London (Edwards, Whitta, Kinberg, JJ, Trank etc), maybe he has indeed met with JJ and the lead actors to get the ball rollinhg on EPIX early.

  • August 19, 2014 at 6:30 pm

    Married? Does he mean they’re co-directing IX?

  • August 19, 2014 at 6:31 pm

    I think Boyega’s photo is a clue to Steven Spielberg directing IX.
    Those mouthfuls of teeth suggest Jaws.
    Secondly, the lights in the background suggest Close Encounters Of The Third Kind. Lastly, the curtains are a reference to Spielberg’s upcoming cold war thriller with Tom Hanks who goes behind the ‘Iron Curtain’ to negotiate the release of captured U-2 pilot Gary Powers.

    • August 19, 2014 at 6:58 pm

      Haha I like where your head is at, but you may be over thinking it a bit. If you are correct though you are like a genius love child of Sherlock Holmes and Richard Castle

  • August 19, 2014 at 6:40 pm

    If Edgar Wright directs any Star Wars episode i will have to buy more and more pants.
    Damn it!!

  • August 19, 2014 at 7:06 pm

    Damn it, if Ridley’s not playing Han and Leia’s kid, then she’s got to be another Padmé handmaiden/decoy, frozen in carbonite all this time or something. She looks more like Portman than Keira Knightley and Rose Byrne combined.

    • August 19, 2014 at 7:51 pm

      She looks better than Portman, imho. Actually she really does look like Portman crossed with young Carrie Fisher. Crazy!

      • August 19, 2014 at 9:55 pm

        Yes, if she plays Leia’s daughter, that is pretty much the genes she would have to work with! Mom and grandma, you know …

      • August 20, 2014 at 5:08 am

        I think she looks like summer glau (creepy girl River from firefly)

    • August 19, 2014 at 7:53 pm

      She’s probably a wandering jedi making her living in seedy spaceports (since jedi temple is destroyed.) I wouldn’t mind seeing that.

      • August 20, 2014 at 1:13 am

        If she’s a wandering 20 year old Jedi, then who was she apprentice to, and where is he/she now?
        Doesn’t seem likely.

    • August 19, 2014 at 9:36 pm

      She’s playing Leia in a flashback.

    • August 19, 2014 at 11:49 pm

      Well Padme is her grandmother.

  • August 19, 2014 at 8:53 pm

    I like John Boyega’s subtlety old school hair.

  • August 19, 2014 at 9:11 pm

    My imagination is running wild as to what I would do with Daisy Ridley’s mouth.

    • August 19, 2014 at 9:54 pm

      I am afraid of her teeth. Seriously

      • August 19, 2014 at 9:58 pm

        Place garlick around your bed and relax.

        • August 19, 2014 at 11:48 pm

          HAhahha. Thanks for the laugh Tirindo. Best answer ever!

          • August 20, 2014 at 12:04 am

            You’re welcome … Honestly, I can’t see why anyone should need to be afraid of poor Daisy’s teeth … it’s not like staring into the Sarlacc or anything!

          • August 20, 2014 at 8:06 pm

            No, that’s at the other end.

    • August 20, 2014 at 6:25 am

      Do you think she would be flattered by that comment if she read it?

  • August 19, 2014 at 10:23 pm

    Daisy is so adorably cute it hurts.

  • August 19, 2014 at 11:50 pm

    Daisy is definitely a cutie.

    Does anyone know what this event was? Looks pretty formal what with name cards for table placement and all.

  • August 19, 2014 at 11:54 pm

    Daisy is spitting image of Padme Amidala ( Natalie Portman ).

    She obviously plays her granddaughter. Luke or Leia daughter.

    I like her.

  • August 20, 2014 at 1:42 am

    Yay finally a fight free post 🙂 These are some awesome pics… that Star Wars T shirt that Boyega is wearing… is that like a crew T shirt or is that one that’s on the general market? (I know that’s an ultra geeky question but what I’m getting at is I wonder if that’s the logo for VII?)

    • August 20, 2014 at 2:21 pm

      That’s because no sentient beings (which don’t exist anyway) have been served up in a restuarant, and the overly sensitive people in need of mental health support are taking a break, as are the ones who can’t take a joke 🙂

  • August 20, 2014 at 10:03 am

    Actually after looking at this picture again, i realized that it shows JJ Abram arrogant and “loud, noisy and lens flared” character. Like a child looking for attention with the greatest self parade possible.
    You would have never seen George Lucas doing the gorilla
    He was too laid back and noble.
    Its the nee generation of course. But such display of behavior should not be attempted by a grown man, and is rather to be expected by a loud noisy kid or teen that just emptied a bunch of beers..

    • August 20, 2014 at 12:52 pm

      George Lucas as a director was apparently so “noble” and aloof that the actors were left wondering whether he thought they were doing a good job or not. Apparently he sat just there, stone-faced, endlessly muttering “faster and more intense” and otherwise providing very little in the way of direction.

      I’d rather take a director who is really connecting with the actors and takes the ride along with them.

  • August 20, 2014 at 11:44 am

    Go have fun. Happiness is good for one’s self and discover Zen Philosophy for the first time.

  • August 20, 2014 at 1:17 pm

    Edgar is not involved in any of the SW films, that’s not to preclude some future undertaking of course. Once the new direction of SW is set and production is smooth, they will be looking for fresh ideas to keep things from becoming stale. But until then he has plenty of work lined up.

  • August 21, 2014 at 8:37 pm

    Why african Americans in this movie, they are unnacesary! I am not racist, but lets be honest, they just use them so all that community can go to the teathers and keep buying the movies, the shirts, toys etc. Again, blacks as the favorite minority in the jew industry! Blacks should realize how this jew industry is using blacks for political purposes! WHites, Blacks, LatinAmericans, Europeans, Asians, WE ALL DESERVE RESPECT AND WE ARE EQUAL IN THE EYES OF GOD

    • August 21, 2014 at 11:21 pm

      My, this post is _wonderfully_ confused about what message it really wants to send regarding racism! The writer throws in just a little bit of anti-semitism as well, like the icing of the cake.
