JJ Abrams to write and direct Star Wars: Episode IX

JJ Abrams to write and direct Star Wars: Episode IX”

J.J. Abrams, director of "Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens", will return to the franchise. J.J. Abrams has been tapped to complete the new trilogy by directing and co-writing the yet-to-be-named third film.

Obviously, Abrams has had some time away from Star Wars, and seeing as the franchise is run as a business, Abrams' $2.1 billion box offices numbers with The Force Awakens probably made the decision even easier.

While Terrio did write the Oscar-winning Argo, he's also the man that's responsible for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Mmm.

"Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on Star Wars: Episode IX".

Attention quickly turned though to who would be directing the movie in Trevorrow's place.

Episode VIII is written and directed by Rian Johnson, and is the second film in the new sequel trilogy in following "The Force Awakens".

"I think this is ok to say", Johnson said. Now I'm just thinking about putting the movie out there and seeing how audiences respond to it. So no, I'm not really thinking about that right now...

Are you excited for Star Wars: The Last Jedi?

"Because they're kind of the first audience we have for the story and they know the characters better than anybody".

As if having two princes, a pop star and Tom Hardy and Justin Theroux in The Last Kedi for cameos wasn't enough, we've now had confirmation from Rian Johnson that he's given a small role to his friend and frequent collaborator Joseph Gordon-Levitt. More recently, his latest feature The Book Of Henry struggled.
