Frank Marshall can tell you who’s directing Star Wars Episode 7, but then he’d have to kill you

Frank Marshall can tell you who’s directing Star Wars Episode 7, but then he’d have to kill you

Not surprisingly, what with a writer now hired and production inching closer, the director’s wish-list for “Star Wars Episode VII” has been whittled down to only a couple of names.
Frank Marshall, husband of Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy, says he has some “inside info on the director] but I can’t reveal it, or I won’t be alive tomorrow.”
Marshall, who has produced such films as “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”, says there’s only “a couple of candidates, but I don’t know how soon that will be revealed.”
Is “Captain America” director Joe Johnston on that short-list? Maybe.

Johnston worked on the effects side of things on the original “Star Wars” trilogy (and has been openly discussing the idea of a ‘Boba Fett’ spin-off movie), which might open the door for him a little wider than it would others.

The Huffington Post asked Johnston whether he might be keen on directing it.

“A lot would depend on what ‘it’ is. I am very glad to see LucasFilm cranking up to get productive again, regardless of who ends up doing it.”

Hopefully we’ll find out soon!
