It's been a week heavy with Star Wars: The Force Awakens posts. Sorry about that. Let's move on to Star Wars: Episode VIII posts. And first of those? The news that J.J. ABRAMS THINKS THE SCRIPT IS SUPER GOOD.
The news comes from actor Greg Grunberg, a lifelong friend of Abrams and our new Porkins (i.e. he's the chubby, unshaven X-wing pilot in The Force Awakens). Speaking to the Washington Post, Grunberg claimed that writer-director Rian Johnson's Episode VIII script is so great that Abrams is now sort of regretting that he's handed the project off.
"He read it and said something he never, ever says," Grunberg, who plays pilot Snap Wexley in the new film, tells The Post's Comic Riffs. "He said: 'It's so good, I wish I were making it.'
"He may have said something one time on Lost, with Damon [Lindelof, the co-creator]," continues Grunberg, whose credits on Abrams series include Lost and Felicity, "but I never hear him express regret like that."
Further lower your Star Trek Beyond expectations accordingly.
