GL has sold the rights to 7,8, and 9 to good friend Steven Spielberg. and he said that most likely he would carry them to the BIG screen with good ol george as executive producer and technical adviser.
I'd love to see your source for this. I can't see anything on the official site, or theforce.net to confirm...
Unless of course you are referring to this rumour
And we're hearing about a wish list of directors, too. Including Steven Spielberg
I wish people would provide links when they offer questionable information - usually it turns out to be completely false.
To be honest, from reading the articles on TFN, it seems to be a serious case of Chinese Whispers going on here. The rumour started with "Peter Mayhew's contract extends to Ep. 7, 8 and 9" - which was probably false anyway. Now, we have a situation where "there IS going to be a 7, 8 and 9, and Steven Spielberg's directing it!"
I hate the internet
