Episode VII May Have Found It’s Writer

Multiple sources like Vulture.com, Deadline.com and The Hollywood Reporter, are reporting that Michael Arndt (The writer for Toy Story 3) has written a treatment for not only Episode VII, but for Episodes VIII & IX as well, and is likely to be one of the writers Disney/Lucasfilm will use for the films. Also mentioned in the article, is that the treatment may be seen by some big name directors like Brad Bird, Steven Spielberg, and J.J. Abrams. Here are some quotes from the article:

“Informed sources tell Vulture that Star Wars: Episode VII has found a leading candidate to write the film’s screenplay: Michael Arndt, the Pixar favorite who was nominated for an Oscar for Toy Story 3, won an Oscar for Little Miss Sunshine, and wrote The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which is currently shooting. Insiders confirm that Arndt has written a 40- to 50-page treatment for the film and is likely to be at least one of the writers when the Disney/Lucasfilm project begins shooting in 2014.”

“We’re told that Arndt’s 40-something page treatment will soon be crossing the desks of top directors, including Brad Bird, Steven Spielberg (the former producing partner of Lucasfilm co-chair Kathleen Kennedy), and J.J. Abrams. Whether they’d be interested is unknown, but Disney wants to make sure they’ve at least tried the biggest names.”

Some very interesting and exciting news indeed if this ends up being true. You can check out the full article of this story over at
