Star Wars Episode VII May Have Found Its Writer

Claude Brodesser-Akner says that Star Wars Episode VII may be written by Michael Arndt:

Informed sources tell Vulture that Star Wars: Episode VII has found a leading candidate to write the film’s screenplay: Michael Arndt, the Pixar favorite who was nominated for an Oscar for Toy Story 3, won an Oscar for Little Miss Sunshine, and wrote The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which is currently shooting. Insiders confirm that Arndt has written a 40- to 50-page treatment for the film and is likely to be at least one of the writers when the Disney/Lucasfilm project begins shooting in 2014.

A good move, and hopefully evidence of a fruitful talent share between Pixar and Star Wars.
