Script For “Star Wars Episode VII” Is Done

Appearing at the TCA panel over the weekend to promote the new series “Believe,” filmmaker J.J. Abrams has confirmed that his and Lawrence Kasdan’s screenplay for “Star Wars: Episode VII” is complete.

He tells The Wrap: “We’re working really hard and we’ve got our script and we’re in deep prep. Full steam ahead, y’know?”

Abrams also confirmed that “Breaking Bad” star Jesse Plemons has auditioned for a role in the film, but wouldn’t go into any further detail about whether Plemons actually scored the role.

He adds that a lot more is going on behind the scenes than makes it into the news.
