Report: 2016 Stand Alone Film to be Shot in London

By: Dominic Jones

A new report indicates that production of Star Wars films will continue to take place in the UK for the foreseeable future.  Production on Star Wars Episode VII is currently taking place at Pinewood Studios in London and it seems the 2016 Stand Alone film directed by Gareth Edwards and written by Gary Whitta will follow suit.

Bloomberg has received an email from Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne confirming that the film would be shot at Pinewood studios.  According to Osbourne,

"This will mean more jobs and more investment.  I have been determined that we back our brilliant creative industries which is why we have invested in skills and training as well as providing tax relief for films, high-end TV, animation, video games and regional theater."

Osbourne also tweeted an image of himself with Lucasfilm President and Episode VII producer Kathleen Kennedy and Episode VII director JJ Abrams, standing with R2-D2 in front of the under construction set of the Millenium Falcon at Pinewood Studios!  Check it out below,
