New report: ‘Star Wars Episode VII’ script not turned in yet

Star Wars is set to return to theaters in 2015, but the script isn’t quite done yet.

Speaking at a Variety breakfast earlier today, Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn told the crowd (via Marc Graser) that he expects to see the script in January, and until then they don’t have an official budget—though he noted that they expect it to be at least $200 million. 

Director JJ Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan are collaborating on the script with Badass Digest reporting that the Michael Arndt script was thrown out and the two started “more or less” from scratch.

“Working with Larry has been one of the most surreal joys of my life,” Abrams says to Total Film. “We’ve had a lot of fun working together. He’s an incredible guy and an inspiring and spectacular writer.”

Abrams confessed that he’s looking forward to shooting Star Wars 7 in London.

“It’s something that I’ve always intended to do,” he says. “But I’m torn because I have done everything I can to keep the production of my projects in Los Angeles. Yet the opportunity to work with UK crews is something that has always been a dream of mine.”

Star Wars: Episode VII hits theaters on December 18, 2015.
