This could be huge. J.J. Abrams is directing “Star Wars Episode VII”. Since then we’ve had rumors of a Han Solo film, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher returning and more. Here’s this for casting news. The site MarketSaw is reporting Simon Pegg will be in the new trilogy. Pegg of course is in “Star Trek Into Darkness”. Here’s the bigger news. The site said Alfonso Cuaron, who directed one of my favorite films of all time, “Children of Men” may be up for Episodes VIII and IX. All I can say is…heck yes.
