The Star Wars universe will no longer be the one galaxy far, far away enough to be free of Joseph Gordon-Levitt casting rumors, because apparently Brick and Looper director Rian Johnson is taking over the franchise. According to Deadline, Johnson is Disney's surprising choice to write and direct both of the next two episodes of the trilogy. Maybe now Paul Dano can join Adam Driver as master and apprentice extremely awkward-looking Sith?

Basically confirming the news, Johnson took to his Twitter to post the below space-themed clip--one more apt and telling than any Star Wars scene could ever be.
