Collider recently spoke with J.J. Abrams’ producer Bryan Burk about their new movie Star Trek: Into Darkness. During their conversation Burk also talked briefly about Star Wars, which he is also producing alongside Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy...
Here's what he told Collider:
Collider: Do you know where and when you might be filming?
BRYAN BURK: 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. As I just said, everything is kind of a free-flowing thing, and when we feel like the story level on this script and everything is really coming together and schedules are all working and pieces line up, we prowl ahead, and Star Wars will be no different.
Collider: Are you a little bit surprised, even for you, about the level of interest or did you sort of know there would be a level of interest you’ve never had before on anything?
BRYAN BURK: I mean, it’s Star Wars. It’s something that obviously has successfully been handed down from generation to generation in the last 40 years. If I weren’t working on the project, I’d have the same interest as everyone else because it’s something that I, too, am looking forward to seeing where the franchise goes next.
