For the record I didn't make a thread. Posted some trade news in the VII thread that was then spun-off into its own thing by one of the mods. No biggie.

Deadline first reported that Johnson is directing and writing both VIII and IX. So there was some understandable confusion.

The other trades (Variety, THR, The Wrap) say that Rian Johnson is writing/directing VIII and is writing the story treatment for IX.

It's fine. I wasn't blaming you. I just think the movies should have separate threads.

Why? I'm trying to fix the fact that the other title is incorrectly named. Rian Johnson isn't confirmed to direct this.
You're only allowed so many characters when making a thread title. Besides, it doesn't say anything about him directing. Confirmed = Involvement.

Let's keep all conversation in the episode's thread for now.

K.

Thanks.

He's not even writing it, it's just a treatment.

Seeing as though Kathleen Kennedy is going berserk, I'm assuming we're going to know who is directing this film that will likely come out in 2021 by, let's say, October?

lol these thread titles.

Also, I want to say for the first time I think in a while, I agree 100% with Cilogy.

I could see that happening, especially since he's like Abrams Lite™.

But is a vastly superior filmmaker to Abrams at the same time.
