With nearly a month since the sequel trilogy was announced, there hasn’t been any major announcements from LucasFilm so far other than the fact that Toy Story 3’s Michael Arndt will be writing Star Wars: Episode VII. Though the list of possible directors is still in play and hasn’t narrowed just yet, one of the earliest rumored to be involved was Matthew Vaughn.
As he ducked out of X-Men: Days of Future Past, many thought it was for Star Wars when it was confirmed that it was instead to focus on bringing Mark Millar’s The Secret Service to the big screen as fast as possible. Now, a key collaborator with Vaughn may have accidentally confirmed that Vaughn and Star Wars may be destined to meet in that galaxy far far away.
So…Luke will be recast?!
I don’t know who to believe anymore. I think it’s too early for any of this to not be taken with a grain of salt.
