Lucasfilm Debunks Rumor That J.J. Abrams Is Considering Abandoning Episode VII
Posted by Eric on July 22, 2013 at 05:07 PM CST |
Earlier today, Badass Digest reported that "J.J. Abrams is on the verge of dropping out of" his directing role on Star Wars Episode VII. Fortunately (or unfortunately, depending on how you feel about Abrams), this rumor is false. We reached out to Lucasfilm for comment, and a company spokesman provided the following statement:

"There is no truth to the rumor. JJ is having a great time working on the script and is looking forward to going into production next year."

For those of you keeping score at home, that's roughly the seven-billionth Episode VII-related rumor to be debunked.

Keep checking TFN for more Episode VII stories and remember to take all rumors with the requisite grain(s) of salt.
