With the promotion for STAR TREK: Into Darkness coming to a close (the film opens May 17th), director J.J. Abrams can now dive head first into his new passion project — the highly anticipated STAR WARS: Episode VII.  Over the past few months we’ve watched as the main cast of the original 1977 film have each signed onto the project, including Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, as well as Anthony Daniels who will once again be voicing C-3PO.  The list of alumni doesn’t stop with the cast alone — The Playlist is reporting that composer John Williams will once again be bringing musical life to the STAR WARS universe.  During a recent press conference in Germany, Abrams was tight-lipped whenever he was asked about STAR WARS, but he did let one detail slip: “For ‘STAR WARS’, it’s every early days to know, but I believe that going forward, John Williams will be [scoring] that film,” he said, jokingly adding: “Because, apparently, he was there long before I was.”  You can read the full story by visiting The Playlist.  STAR WARS: Episode VII is set for release in 2015.  Kathleen Kennedy (E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park, Schindler’s List, Lincoln) is Executive Producer, with Michael Arndt as screenwriter.
