Lawrence Kasdan coming on for one or two of the Star Wars sequel-sequels? Now I’m getting excited about going back to a galaxy far, far away.
Seriously, Kasdan’s script provided the foundation for Empire being far and away (heh) the best of the six movies. It didn’t hurt that Lucas stayed mostly away from principle photography (which he’ll be doing again), and that Irvin Kershner directed with a flair for real humanity.
Lucas, out. Kasdan, in. Now we just need a director.
