Star Wars Producer Gary Kurtz Discusses Episode VII Open Auditions

Posted by Eric on November 6, 2013 at 02:31 PM CST

Gary Kurtz, who produced the first two Star Wars films, wrote a blog post for The Guardian explaining why the open audition process we just heard about for Episode VII is the right thing to do. Here's part of what he said:

Doing open auditions makes sense to me. Some of the more recent films they cast star names. I think they never bothered to test them with other people and sometimes when you do that there doesn't seem to be a lot of chemistry on the screen.

They are not going to be shooting it until next spring so they have got time to search through all these candidates. They don't have a script as far as I know, but they will have a good idea where they are going with the story.
Head over to The Guardian to read Kurtz's blog post.
