Star Wars Scribe Kasdan and X-Men Scribe Kinberg Hit Up for New Trilogy?

It’s been confirmed that Michael Arndt is writing the script for Star Wars Episode VII, but Deadline is reporting that the powers at be have reached out to Lawrence Kasdan and Simon Kinberg to begin work on Episodes VIII and IX.  If you’ve been a long time Star Wars fan Kasdan should be a familiar name to you as he worked on both The Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi.  Kinberg is no slouch either as he has worked on the recent X-Men prequels and Sherlock Holmes.

Considering that Empire is considered the best story in the Star Wars universe I would assume most fans would be on board with the idea of him returning to the franchise.  Let us know what you’re thinking by leaving a few comments down below.  You’ve been liking being excited about Star Wars again…
