'Star Wars Episode 7' to Start Shooting in Early 2014


Producer Bryan Burk reveals that director J.J. Abrams will start filming the 'Star Wars' flick as soon as 'script and a whole bunch of other issues' are set.

Producer Bryan Burk builds fans' anticipation of annual "Star Wars" film, which will grace theaters every summer starting in 2015, with an update from "Star Wars Episode 7". In an interview with Collider, he revealed that director J.J. Abrams might start working on the film, which is penned by Michael Arndt, probably in early next year.

"We're progressing on a schedule to hopefully begin next year, or the beginning of next year," Burk said, before continuing, "And the location is still kind of floating around in the air all depending on script and a whole bunch of other issues."

Producing the film alongside Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy, Burk then added, "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."

After acquiring George Lucas' Lucasfilm for $4 billion last October, Disney has had major plans in mind to expand the "Star Wars" franchise. Besides the annual film and new parks, the studio recently closed a multi-year licensing deal with Electronic Arts to let the video game publisher develop games for mobile devices, PCs and consoles based on the "Star Wars" movies.

The studio will retain the rights to develop online and mobile games.
