"The first time we met, do you remember it?"
I’m not a big fan of Star Wars but this was a pretty seismic shift in the franchise’s philosophy and production ethos since Lucas re-imagined the first three in the trilogy:
- Aaron Proctor reports that cinematographer Dan Mindel will shoot the JJ Abrams-directed Star Wars Episode VII on Kodak 5219. Yeah, film.
- Harry Knowles at Ain’t It Cool News also passed along a rumor that Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light and Magic is expanding its model shop in anticipation of the production. Yeah, miniatures.
A New Hope for Hollywood, if you will.
