Star Wars: Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg To Write New Episodes
Originally reported by Deadline and now the Hollywood Reporter is confirming that writers Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg have closed deals to write and produce Episode VIII and IX in the upcoming new trilogy http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/star-wars-lawrence-kasdan-simon-393459. The big news is the return of Kasdan, who co-wrote the scripts for The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi as well as Raiders of the Lost Ark. Both will be joining already announced screenwriter Michael Arndt who is writing the script for Episode VII. How's that for some news to give thanks for?
