Report: 'Toy Story 3' writer may pen new 'Star Wars' movie

From “infinity and beyond” to “a galaxy far, far away,” “Toy Story 3” screenwriter Michael Arndt could pen the script for the new “Star Wars” movie.

Arndt, the Oscar-winning writer behind 2006’s “Little Miss Sunshine” and the “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” which is due out in November 2013, was hired to write an extended outline for “Episode 7,” according to Variety.

It’s likely that he’ll also write a draft of the screenplay, to include “a much older Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and Han Solo,” the site reports.

Though none of the original actors have signed on as of yet, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford have all said they’re open to the idea of reprising their roles.

What do you think of a possible Arndt-penned “Episode 7”?

    Stars Wars is a pretty crap*py franchise.

    So,it's made up of Six filsm,that fans only like two of them the second and third one(or,as it's called now Episode 5 and Six)

    So,only two out of six? NO THANKS.I guess it's an infeior franchise.

    All Disney is going to do by making more Star Wars movies is take a huge crap all over the series.

    This is going to stink. TS3 was a very liberal sotryline and now it is going to completely derail the Star Wars storyline.

    If he can tell a story correctly through screenplays, which he has given his previous credentials, then I have faith for episode 7. It all starts with his idea, followed by 120 plus pages of epicness, Godspeed Michael...
