Among the names mentioned when Disney first took control of LucasFilm and the future of "Star Wars" was Joseph Kosinski, the visual stylist who brought "Tron" and The Grid back to the big screen.

MTV News recently got on the phone with Kosinski to talk about his latest film, "Oblivion," and naturally, the conversation drifted to the continuing "Star Wars" saga.

"I have not, I have not," he said. "For me, I feel like, between 'Tron' and 'Oblivion,' I've gotten to fulfill my 'Star Wars' fantasies, in a way. It's flattering of you to mention, but like everyone else, I'm interested to see where they take it. I actually know the writer [Michael Arndt] on it very well; he's a fantastic writer, and I think he's perfect for the job, so I'm sure it will be a great story, and I can't wait to see what they do with it. »
