Rick McCallum Talks Episode III[Wednesday, October 23rd, 2002]
TheForce.net report on a 'Star Wars Insider' article where producer Rick McCallum is asked for an update on Episode III.
The first thing he does is offer up a laundry list of what's about to happen. "I finalize the deal at FOX Studios, Sydney in about a week's time; I've got our production designer starting in October; Our costume designer starts next month, and she starts shopping for fabrics. We're equipping the sound stages, sending in stuff from England back over to Sydney. So we're in real "go" mode now."
McCallum adds, "George says he's writing, so we're just moving forward, trying to make him feel as guilty as possible." It is possible that George Lucas could hire a co-writer, as he did for Episode II, but currently its "impossible to tell".
McCallum expects the screenplay will be finished next spring, with a release penned for May 2005.
