Lucasfilm shoots down rumours that J.J. Abrams is leaving Star Wars: Episode VII
Over the last few weeks, a rumour has been steadily building that all may not be well behind the scenes of Star Wars: Episode VII.
The problem as reported, has revolved around the fact that Abrams is unwilling to shoot the movie in the UK, as it would involve a lot of personal upheaval for a director who has only ever directed projects in the US.
The issue had been thought to be so serious that claims have been emerging online that Abrams is set to walk away from the project entirely. However, Lucasfilm has released an official statement claiming that this is not the case.
