American director Rian Johnson has been hired to direct Star Wars Episode VIII.It seems JJ Abrams is not sticking around after Star Wars Episode VII, and a new face has been cast as the director for the next instalment of the Star Wars saga.

Rian Johnson, director of 2012's sci-fi action thriller Looper starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Bruce Willis, has also recently won a DGA award for directing an episode of the hit TV show Breaking Bad.

Well, I don't really see this as a huge surprise, as it was unlikely JJ would stick around for all three new trilogy films.

 

Plus, the original trilogy all had different directors, so it should be fine. :p

True, but the prequels only had one director and they turned out all right. :shifty:
