J.J. Abrams confirmed the Star Wars Episode VII script is done. The announcement has fans nervous about the upcoming story line of the popular franchise. According to The Verge on Monday, there will not be IMAX filming like previously considered. The details of the film are minimal, but the excitement of the progression on the movie has fans really looking forward to what is next.

“We’re working really hard and we've got our script and we’re in deep prep,” said J.J. Abrams to The Wrap on Sunday. The confirmation is a big deal as people have wondered how far along the project is and who might be involved.

Now fans are starting to question who might be starring in the film. There have been plenty of names, but no confirmations have come from J.J. Abrams just yet. One name that keeps coming up is Breaking Bad actor Jesse Plemons. As there is no confirmation of his involvement, fans definitely see the star as a possible character in the story.

So when will the cast get together for the project? According to USA Today on Monday the filming starts in May and the location for the first shots is in England.

Star Wars fans know that J.J. Abrams is one of the best people in the business to keep secrets. During his show Lost there were few spoilers and other projects he has been part of rarely share details until the fans see it. There is no doubt that some details will be known, but until the new Star Wars film is seen in the theaters don’t expect too many spoilers.

Star Wars Episode VII is due out on December 18, 2015.
