Rumor: Carrie Fisher may be filming Star Wars: Episode VII for six months

1 year agoby:

It really sucks that every time we write up a story about STAR WARS: EPISODE VII that we need to add the word rumor in front of it. I am adding it as a precaution this time but this sounds like legit information since it is coming from Jim Jeffries, star of FX's LEGIT. See what I did there?

Carrie Fisher will be guest starring on LEGIT this season and Jeffries shared a little tidbit of knowledge he learned about her still unannounced role in STAR WARS: EPISODE VII.

She’s a funny lady, man. She’ll be smoking cigarettes outside and as soon as she gets inside, she’s straight on to the vapor. She’s had some fucking hard partying in her life, I tell ya….She said to me, she goes, “I’m going off to London for six months to film the new ‘Star Wars’ movie,” right? And I don’t think from looking at it, the new ‘Star Wars’ movie is a direct continuation. It’s number 7 but it’s not going to be the next day, I’ll tell you that much. Maybe she had the same problem the Emperor had, I don’t know.

Carrie Fisher has not been shy about her involvement with STAR WARS: EPISODE VII despite no official announcement from the studio regarding her involvement. I would highly doubt that Fisher would be back without Mark Hamill or Harrison Ford, so I would expect to hear something official sooner rather than later. The interesting thing here is that her filming will be a six month commitment. While a project as huge as STAR WARS: EPISODE VII can take as long as six months or longer, this should also serve as a rough indicator that Fisher's role will not be a mere cameo.

There have been rumors that J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan taking over writing duties on STAR WARS: EPISODE VII had to do with the desire to increase the screen time and story involvement from the original trilogy stars. This definitely serves as a good indicator that the Skywalker clan will not only be the primary focus but that both generations will be prominently featured. Here's hoping we get official news soon. The movie is slated to begin production shortly.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII is slated to open December 18, 2015.

Extra Tidbit: Anyone want to wager that J,J. Abrams is shooting EPISODE VII and VIII back to back?

I wonder if they'll have a scenes of Princess Leia out behind the Imperial Palace, having a smoke. Or maybe she'll be hanging out on a new Death Star, which is called that because everyone on it smokes. I'll never understand why anyone smokes. But I understand even less why an actress would. Preserving your looks is less important than sucking on nicotine? A naturally-aged Princess would have been lovely and inspirational. A hacking, black-lunged, smoking Princess is just sad. Then again,

Then again, Harrison Ford smokes too, doesn't he? Maybe they can show the Millennium Falcon filled up with smoke as they fly around. I just hope their kids aren't in the ship at the same time. That's just cruel.

I'm excited as hell for this, but these rumors are becoming bullshit. The only conformation we have have is Adam Driver playing the villain. Would be nice to get a couple of more of those confirmations.

That Adam Driver thing was still only a rumor and hasn't been confirmed by anyone involved in the film.

I hope that Han, Luke, Leia, Chewie and possibly Lando play supporting mentor roles, and then get one scene to themselves to kick ass.

I'm thinking give the big three major roles in the first with the new cast as support. Kill off Han and Leia at the end and let Hammil be in the entire trilogy. I tend to think Hammil will be up big time for this role and wouldn't be surprised to see if he gets himself into decent shape. Curious though if they are going to give Leia some minor force abilities, being Luke's twin and all.

must have learned his lesson from Kahn

Now Abrams won't even confirm who is in his movies so he can keep his ground breaking plot a secret as long as possible. It's your move now Chris Nolan.

You do know this is still a rumor right? And it probably takes some time to lock down big contracts, especially with stars that probably don't really want to be in Star Wars anymore.

I'd be more excited about the the original cast being featured prominently in VII if they intended to do that from the beginning. It sounds like they rushed out a script with these changes at the last minute, and I'm concerned that it will affect the quality, or end up being filler before the main story about the next generation begins in episode VIII.

On the other hand, maybe the reason they were able to churn out a revised script so quickly was because Lawrence Kasden already had a good

On the other hand, maybe the reason they were able to churn out a revised script so quickly was because Lawrence Kasden already had a good story in mind over the last 30 years with the original characters, in which case this could be surprisingly awesome.
