[From MTV News] J.J. Abrams, Jon Favreau, you name it — if they're a popular director, they're probably rumored for "Star Wars: Episode VII." The rumors and speculation are flying fast and furiously, but from what we hear, it won't be long before the chatter dies down and the facts roll out.
Producer Frank Marshall, whose wife Kathleen Kennedy is the president of Lucasfilm, spoke with MTV News this week and revealed that he knows what's going on with the "Star Wars" director search — but you won't be getting any details out of him.
"I do," Marshall replied when asked if he knew who would be behind the hotly awaited "Star Wars" sequel. "But I can't reveal it, or I won't be alive tomorrow."
