    I find it amazing how even Deadline Hollywood is in the dark over the identity of the director. I still firmly believe a director has already been hired and has been working on it for the last month or so.

    Maybe, but I highly doubt it. No one makes a move in Hollywood without Deadline finding out about it.

    Well they were in the dark about the Disney deal, just like everyone else. Lucasfilm has a fairly good track record of keeping in-house secrets.

    Yes but now the cat is out of the bag in regards to the Disney deal. Every talent agency in Hollywood will be trying to attach their client to this job and if the job was already taken it would've leaked.

    Wait the director is named Soon? What kind of name is that? Does he/she/it have a last name? I better see more of Soon's work before I'm okay with this.

    (Trailer for Episode VII is playing)
    Audience member: Oh man this is awesome! I'm so excited!
    Trailer voice: Coming this summer, Star Wars Episode VII: Chewie's Moon Problems. Directed by Soon.
    Audience member: I don't like Star Wars anymore.

    And risked being found diced up in an oil drum, floating off the coast of California? Not likely.

    The Hollywood Reporter has been the most accurate source thus far. I haven't read anything from Deadline before anyone else already had it.

    Frank Marshall knows who it is. This was reported at the beginning of the month by MTV of all places. Of course he said if he told anyone he'd be dead by the next morning. This has been a pretty good guarded secret but i think all signs are pointing squarely to Matthew Vaughn . . . and for good reason.

    He would have nothing to gain by leaking it anyway.

    No it's Vince Vaughn. It's going to be a comedy.

    I'm going to ask my friend Heather Vaughn how it feels to be named director of Star wars and more importantly why she kept it from me.

    They still need a completed script before they can begin casting. Like everything else surrounding the news about Ep 7 I suspect its further along than we know.

    It's 2 PM in the East and still no video . . . .

    Alan Horn said up until the announcement only a small number of people knew about the ST. Disney's gonna give a whole new meaning to the term "tightly guarded."

    But the cat's out of the bag now, where as the scoop sites weren't looking for the info. I think you'll see stuff trickle
    out now. We are already seeing some of that (if HR and Deadline's scoops are legit.).
