SHARE “Star Wars” rumor report: The words are written

So it is written, so it will be done, according to sources who attended the Television Critics Association tour, where J.J. Abrams briefly addressed “Star Wars” while plugging his numerous TV projects. The script is finished, Abrams said.

Abrams, usually more the no-comment type, did confirm that Jesse Plemons, bad boy Todd from “Breaking Bad,” did meet with him for a part. Plemons had brushed it off when asked about it over the weekend. Shooting starts in May.

Also confirmed, “Episode VII” will be shot on film, and will not be shot in IMAX.
