Unfortunate news Star Wars nerds. Brad Bird, the director behind The Incredibles and Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol has taken himself out of the running for Star Wars Episode VII. He’s currently working with Disney to create the science fiction film, 1952, with George Clooney being attached to the project. There aren’t many candidates left so it’s going to be interesting who Kathleen Kennedy and co. decides to go with. But it seems to me that Matthew Vaughn is still the favorite. We’ll keep our eyes and ears open.
