    Sad day in the star wars universe:

    The AFP reports that Irvin Kershner died early this morning in Los Angeles at the age of 87. His goddaughter said that his death resulted from a "long illness."

    Kershner, who was best known to Star Wars fans as the director of The Empire Strikes Back in 1980, also directed RoboCop 2 and the Bond film Never Say Never Again.

    So watch ESB tonight.
