Rumours of J.J. Abrams quitting Star Wars Episode VII put to rest
The internet has recently been abuzz with whisperings that things are going less than swimmingly on the set of the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode VII, with reports of director J.J. Abrams being unhappy about shooting the movie in the UK due to personal inconveniences that were so severe, he is said to have been considering leaving the project entirely. Thankfully, Lucasfilm have shot down these rumours with the following statement:
“There is no truth to the rumour. J.J. is having a great time working on the script and is looking forward to going into production next year.”
So there you have it. Short, simple and conclusive. Fan rumours have often been based in some truth in the past but it seems that in this case they should be taken with a pinch of salt as it would be absurd for Abrams to drop out of a project so dear to him at this stage in its development. With these rumours put to rest, all we can do is wait until 2015 to see how the master of lens flare adds his trademark polish to the legendary space opera franchise.
