It sometimes pays to be in the right place at the right time. We've overheard, and can confirm, that Seth Gordon is currently attached to a romantic space adventure for Walt Disney Pictures. What we can't get confirmed is that it is, in fact, Star Wars: Episode VII. But we're hearing that it might be. Maybe. Maybe not.
Since it was announced, Star Wars: Episode VII has become the biggest sequel in the galaxy, and the announcement of a director is imminent. The treatment from Michael Arndt has gone out to some of the biggest names in Hollywood, with Brad Bird, Steven Spielberg, J.J. Abrams, Jon Favreau, Zack Snyder, and Quentin Tarantino all passing on the project. Safety Not Guaranteed's Colin Trevorrow was an odds on favorite to take the job, but he's now busy with the Flight of the Navigator remake set up at Disney.
So whom does that leave? »
