Jim Jefferies, the star of the FXX show Legit
, has heard from Carrie Fisher that she will be in London for six months filming her part in Star Wars
Episode VII, according to Slashfilm
(via Club Jade
). Jefferies revealed this to a satellite radio program while promoting his show, in which Fisher will soon make a guest appearance. Here's the quote:
She said to me, she goes ‘I’m going off to London for six months to film the new Star Wars movie,’ right? And I don’t think from looking at it, the new Star Wars movie is a direct continuation. It’s number 7 but it’s not going to be the next day, I’ll tell you that much. Maybe she had the same problem the Emperor had, I don’t know.
Carrie Fisher certainly hasn't been shy about commenting on Episode VII. Check out the Slashfilm article
