J.J. Abrams: Production On Episode VII Will Commence In May

Posted by Eric on January 20, 2014 at 01:47 PM CST

USA Today picked up several of J.J. Abrams' comments during the Television Critics Association summer press tour about the production timeline for Star Wars Episode VII. Abrams told the media that "the current plan" was to begin shooting in May, adding, "We have our script and we're full steam ahead. Have script, will travel." There's also this on the subject of casting:

"We can't talk about story yet," said the director, who plans to travel to England soon to begin work on the seventh film in the long-running saga. As far as casting, he had no details but said they will come "soon, and I look forward to that so that we can get past it and we can get on with it."
Head over to USA Today for the full story.

UPDATE: Carrie Fisher told TV Guide that she, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill will be starting work on the film in March or April, which would sync up with a May start date for shooting. (Thanks to TFN reader Henri for the heads-up.)
