Star Wars Episode VII producer Bryan Burk has revealed that shooting on the much-anticipated sequel is scheduled to start next year.
Speaking to Collider, Burk also commented that everything has to be right before work begins on the first of what is scheduled to be a series of new Star Wars films under Disney.
“We’re progressing on a schedule to hopefully begin next year, or the beginning of next year, and the location is still kind of floating around in the air all depending on script and a whole bunch of other issues. As I just said, everything is kind of a free-flowing thing, and when we feel like the story level on this script and everything is really coming together and schedules are all working and pieces line up, we prowl ahead, and Star Wars will be no different.
It’s something that obviously has successfully been handed down from generation to generation in the last 40 years. If I weren’t working on the project, I’d have the same interest as everyone else because it’s something that I, too, am looking forward to seeing where the franchise goes next.”
Star Wars Episode VII, directed by JJ Abrams, has a tentative release date of 2015.
