You wait all year for a news piece about a returning sci-fi franchise to start filming in early 2014 and then two come along at once.

Everything is a bit hazy around Disney’s additions to the Star Wars franchise and, for now at least, all information is being kept pretty hush-hush. However, when speaking to Collider, producer Bryan Burk has had this to say about the Episode VII production timeline:

We’re progressing on a schedule to hopefully begin next year, or the beginning of next year, and the location is still kind of floating around in the air all depending on script and a whole bunch of other issues.

It may not be any hints about the film’s story or location – though we may still see that Scotland-set Star Wars, yet!- but it’s definitely good to know we might get that 2015 release date we were promised.
