It seems LOOPER director Rian Johnson has been snapped up to write and direct STAR WARS EPISODE VIII and IX, taking over the reigns from JJ Abrams.

Although it's not been officially confirmed, Johnson has posted a short clip from eighties classic THE RIGHT STUFF on his Twitter feed, perhaps to express his current emotions.


With LOOPER being one of the better films of 2011, it could be that the saga is going to be in safe hands. Colour us even more excited.

More news when we get it. 

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII opens December 15th 2015, and the untitled STAR WARS spin-off movie hits the following year on December 16th.
