Simon Kinberg Talks About New Star Wars movies
Known for his work on projects like X-Men: Days of Future Past and Fantastic Four, Simon Kinberg has become a part of the creative team behind the next series of Star Wars films. He has been working in collaboration with Michael Arndt and Lawrence Kasdan on the next trilogy. He is a huge fan of the franchise and feels that this might just be the highlight of his career.
Simon said that Like a TV writers room, we spent a week with a whiteboard and some pens and were in a conference room all day talking about [movies] VII, VIII, and IX. But it’s a whiteboard covered in our notes. We had a sense of what we each wanted to write. It was the most magical time because we were writing Star Wars films. Then we would go back to the inn at Skywalker and have dinner and drink a little bit and Larry would tell me and Michael stories about the moment in his life where he wrote Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Empire Strikes Back, The Big Chill, Body Heat all in the span of, he think, 5 years. So we just had this crazy, magical time together”.
He will be writing a standalone Star Wars movie that is scheduled for a release in 2018. He is currently titled as a “consultant” for the movies but he stated that he like a friend of court. he consult on the films.he worked on VII: helped break the story, read scripts, drafts at certain points, and gave my thoughts whatever they were worth.
