Star Wars Episode VII Rumor Time
Begun the Rumor Wars Have!
Yep we're just a few days after the big news of Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm and we already have two rumors hitting the web. The first comes from Collider's Steve Weintraub who reports that Matthew Vaughn (best known for Kick-Ass and last year's X-Men: First Class) is in talks to take the director's chair for the sequel http://collider.com/star-wars-episode-7-matthew-vaughn/208715/#more-208715. Topping that one is former LA Times Hero Complex writer Geoff Boucher whose reporting for Entertainment Weekly that Harrison Ford is considering reprising his role as everyone's favorite scruffy nerf herder Han Solo for the sequel along with a possibly returning Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher http://insidemovies.ew.com/2012/11/05/star-wars-sequel-harrison-ford-han-solo-exclusive/. We'll have to see if any of these stories turn out to be true but for now there you go. UPDATE: More rumors! In this case another name has been floated as a potential director, indie filmmaker Colin Trevorrow, whose feature Safety Not Guaranteed caught the eye of George Lucas himself while TMZ has a comment from Carrie Fisher who told them she was willing to return to as Princess Leia for the sequel.
