Bad Robot Productions' Bryan Burk is one of the producers on Star Wars
Episode VII, but according to /Film, he has not yet had a discussion with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy regarding spoilers, secrets, and other aspects of the fan-production relationship. Here's part of /Film's recent interview with Burk
in which the interviewer mentions Kennedy's comments about secrecy
/Film: In an interview recently she said there had been discussions about the secrecy surrounding the film, but once the movie is in production there was a possibility you guys might lighten up on the secrecy a little bit.
Burk: Well we haven’t had those conversations, but I’m sure she would agree, and by the way having grown up watching all of her movies, you know… nobody saw ET before and I didn’t know what the temple in The Temple of Doom was until I saw it. I guess what I’m saying is it’s always that balance. It’s a hard thing. If I were to right now tell you all of the things that were going to happen in Star Wars in detail, the left side of your brain would say ’Awesome,’ you guys would have this exclusive and know all of this stuff. But the right side is going to sit down one day and see the movie for the first time and you’d have all of that kind of spoiled, so it’s that balance of wanting to know everything and not wanting to know everything at the same time.
