    Finally are months of waiting have finally paid off for this small bit of news. While yes it has been talked about some in the other threads. And we did have one thread attempt it. We feel this news is worthy of it's own thread.

    Script is Done

    Production to start in May

    So let's discuss what this means for the months leading up to may. I for one am exciting about the cast announcements and the possible leaked info of who is playing who.

    Huh. I'm surprised this this hasn't been posted earlier.

    Anyway, I wouldn't mind Ian McShane getting his own role in the movie. Also, Michael McElhatton, maybe as who holds a military position.

    Another a completely unrelated note: if you'd read the fifth book of A Song of Ice and Fire, you wouldn't hate Theon Greyjoy. That is all.

    I have to say, it took longer than I expected for this thread to pop up, but now that it has:

    YAY! It's about time! :D

    Now, let's move onto the casting announcements and the insanity that comes along with them!

    Did you know the original name for "February" on the Gregorian Calendar was actually "The Month In The Year 2014 Where The First Official Casting For Star Wars Episode 7 Is Announced"?

    Its where we get Space Slug Day from too. If on Feb 2nd, he rises up and doesn't see his shadow we'll get casting news!

    [​IMG]

    ...but if he does see his shadow, six more weeks with no offical casting news.

    I'm wondering if, when the cast is announced, there's some possibility that without getting into the actual plot of Episode VII we might get just a little bit of background on the history of the characters and events in the GFFA leading up to it.

    It wouldn't surprise me one bit if the casting announcement is sprinkled with disinformation about bio's and stuff.

    Why do you think it would be disinformation if it's coming from an official source? Because J.J.? Kennedy has already said they weren't going to try too hard to be secretive with this one. And besides, I'm only talking about little bits of info to set up Episode VII for the general audience to understand the basic timeframe and relationship between this movie and the rest of the saga, just to give a little bit of context for the casting. If we got anything at this stage I wouldn't expect any more than that.

    The year’s at the spring,
    And day’s at the morn;
    Morning’s at seven;
    The hill-side’s dew-pearled;
    The lark’s on the wing;
    The snail’s on the thorn;
    God’s in His heaven—
    All’s right with the world!

    Jesse Plemons? Who is he? He looks like the offspring of Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg.
