Seems like everyone is all overjoyed at Kasdan's return to Star Wars and we seem to be glossing over Simon Kinberg. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_Kinberg Now his track record isn't exactly... stellar. He wrote X Men: The Last Stand and Jumper, among others. However, he DID write the first Sherlock Holmes, which is a movie franchise I love, and seems to have a good track record as a producer, which includes First Class and Neil Blomkamps' upcoming flick which is guaranteed to be awesome coming from the same visionary behind District 9. Maybe Star Wars will bring out the best in him?
