J.J. Abrams over problemen met opnames Star Wars: Episode VII

Star Wars: Episode VII

Het was al even bekend dat regisseur J.J. Abrams zijn twijfels had bij het opnemen van Star Wars: Episode VII in Londen. Nu laat de regisseur weten waarom hij daar moeite mee heeft. Hij vertelde:

“[Filming in London] is something that I’ve always intended to do. But I’m torn because I have done everything I can to keep the production of my projects in Los Angeles. Yet the opportunity to work with UK crews is something that has always been a dream of mine. Of course, that dream existed prior to me being married and having a family, so the reality of making a movie like that for any period of time becomes much more difficult when there are other people that you desperately love and care for involved.”

Ook vertelde Abrams over het samenwerken met scenarist Lawrence Kasdan:

“Working with Larry has been one of the most surreal joys of my life. We’ve had a lot of fun working together. He’s an incredible guy and an inspiring and spectacular writer.”

Star Wars: Episode VII is te zien vanaf 18 december 2015.
