Ever since Disney bought the rights to the Star Wars franchise from George Lucas, who is currently building his own working Death Star out of Cheetos, we’ve been keeping our guard up for an onslaught of bogus rumors, and rightfully so. I mean, as if Harrison Ford would actually play Chewbacca and Shi LeBeouf would play Han Solo. I can’t believe people expected us to believe that. But there have been some solid, accurate rumors, including Toy Story 3 scribe Michael Arndt writing an Episode VII treatment, so maybe we’re getting to the good stuff now.
Today’s first Star Wars report is a total bummer, because despite earlier reports of the contrary, Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly are not going to be the duo behind the new era. As it turns out, the Safety Not Guaranteed director and writer (respectively) will be working for Disney, but it’s for a remake of yet another childhood classic, according to Variety.
