Lucas and Spielberg bet each other 2.5% of ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Close Encounters’ respectively on which would be a bigger success.
In an interview with The Wrap, director J.J. Abrams said that the script is complete and that casting and other prep are under way.

Posting this link again as I totally missed the second part where Badass Digests suggests Abrams may be leaving ‘Star Wars 7’. Just a big rumor for now, but of note nonetheless.
Speaking of losing jobs… why is it that I keep hearing tons of rumors that JJ Abrams is on the verge of dropping out of Star Wars? This has been something I’ve heard for a while now, and from multiple insiders. I know that he didn’t want to shoot the movie in England and was overruled, but that happened a while ago. This weekend at Comic Con I continued to hear these whispers. No director for Trek 3 has been found yet - might Abrams end up coming back after all, leaving Star Wars to someone else? I’m expecting Star Wars news out of the German Star Wars Celebration at the end of the month - if there is some sort of announcement of a title or casting and Abrams isn’t there, start wondering.
Amazon has the full ‘Star Wars’ blu-ray set for 50% off the $139.99 list price. Or you could get the individual trilogies $30 each.
