Episode VII to be filmed in Ireland?

By: Dominic Jones 

It is being reported that JJ Abrams and Bad Robot Productions are currently in talks with the Irish Film Board (IFM) regarding shooting outdoor scenes for Star Wars Episode VII in North Clare, Ireland.  It is believed that filming will take place in the Burrens.  We know production for Star Wars Episode VII will be taking place in England, so naturally it makes sense for the location shoots to take place near by.

When asked by Irish website ClarePeople, IFM chief executive James Hickey said, “The Irish Film Board, working with Trina Vargo of the US-Ireland Alliance, has been in discussions with JJ Abrams and his team at Bad Robot about filming a number of projects on their slate in the Republic of Ireland.  We have provided them with briefings about Ireland’s tax incentive Section 481, our accessible locations, world-class crew and production companies.”

Other films shot in North Clare include Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince and The Princess Bride
