Scribes Lawrence Kasdan ("The Empire Strikes Back," "Raiders of the Lost Ark") and Simon Kinberg ("Sherlock Holmes," "X-Men: Days of Future Past") have reportedly closed deals to pen the final two instalments of the new "Star Wars" trilogy at Disney Pictures.
The pair join Oscar winner Michael Arndt ("Toy Story 3," "Little Miss Sunshine") who is writing the script for the upcoming "Episode VII," the first of a new trilogy of 'Wars' films being made without the hands-on input of creator George Lucas.
The division of whom will write Episode VIII and/or Episode IX has yet to be determined. Kasdan and Kinberg would also join the projects as producers alongside Kathleen Kennedy.
Disney and Lucasfilm are declining to comment at this time.
