    Rian Johnson to write and direct Star Wars Episode VIII

    http://variety.com/2014/film/news/ri...ms-1201226481/
    While production just began on “Star Wars: Episode VII,” Disney and LucasFilm are already focusing on Episode VIII. Sources tell Variety that “Looper” director Rian Johnson is in talks to write and direct the next film in the popular series.

    Johnson is best known for his sci-fi action pic “Looper” starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis. The pic overperformed at the box office bringing in $176 million dollars worldwide. He also directed several episodes of “Breaking Bad” last season.
    Johnson will apparently also be writing the script for Episode IX, but won't be directing that film. Also looks like it will be one and done for J.J. Abrams. Little surprised by that.

    Gareth Edwards is directing the 2016 spinoff and Josh Trank is directing the 2018 spinoff.

    Rian Johnson is doing Episode VIII in 2017.

    Star Wars is a magical entity to me that is now dead. Jar Jar Binks held the gun.

    The Ewoks should have told me, but, I could look past that.

    Thanks Shifty!
