Vulture is reporting that TOY STORY 3 writer Michael Arndt has written a treatment for Star Wars Episode VII the film Disney will make in 2014.

Informed sources tell Vulture that Star Wars: Episode VII has found a leading candidate to write the film’s screenplay: Michael Arndt, the Pixar favorite who was nominated for an Oscar for Toy Story 3, won an Oscar for Little Miss Sunshine, and wrote The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which is currently shooting. Insiders confirm that Arndt has written a 40- to 50-page treatment for the film and is likely to be at least one of the writers when the Disney/Lucasfilm project begins shooting in 2014.


So what did it feel like, Michael Arndt? Did you cry or laugh? Or pee your pants? Smoke a cigarette, sit back down, smoke another…drink a cup of coffee…turn your computer on and off…

HOW DID IT FEEL THE MOMENT YOU LIVED THE ULTIMATE FANBOY DREAM????

Sources also tell Vulture that the studio’s brass want to bring back the three central characters of the original Star Wars: a much older Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo. No deals are in place with any of the original actors, though our source did say it had high ambitions to sign up Mark Hamill, and EW recently reported that Harrison Ford was open to the idea of returning. We’re told that Arndt’s 40-something page treatment will soon be crossing the desks of top directors, including Brad Bird, Steven Spielberg (the former producing partner of Lucasfilm co-chair Kathleen Kennedy), and J.J. Abrams. Whether they’d be interested is unknown (Star Wars is a lot of baggage for an established director), but Disney wants to make sure they’ve at least tried the biggest names.

    Good choice for screenwriter, hopefully he doesn’t get run off because of “creative differences”. I’m hoping for the best

  2. Chris Hero says:

    I heard a really good idea on Tony Kornheiser’s radio show. Kornheiser said the only way this can work is if the people making it are in their 20’s and young 30’s like Lucas was when he made the originals. He also said the young film makers would need carte blanche to make decisions that will resonate with kids.
