star wars film
Kathleen Kennedy

The Hollywood Reporter have an exclusive interview with Kathleen Kennedy who spills the beans on how she managed to get JJ Abrams on board for Star Wars episode seven.  The article is really insightful and makes you realise that Kathleen Kennedy is the right person for the job at the top of Lucasfilm.

The article explains how Kennedy pitched the idea to JJ Abrams:

she summarizes her pitch like this: "Please do Star Wars." And she had cards to play. Not only was Oscar winner Michael Arndt (Little Miss SunshineToy Story 3) writing the script, but Lawrence Kasdan, who wrote 1980's The Empire Strikes Back and 1983's Return of the Jedi, was on board to consult. Abrams "was flipping out when he found out that Michael and Larry were on the movie already," says Kennedy.

Abrams tells THR, "I learned firsthand how incredible and persuasive she is." Some -- but not all -- of his reservations were dispelled. "The thing about any pre-existing franchise -- I'd sort of done that," he says. "But when I met with Kathy, it was suddenly very tantalizing."

Read the full article at The Hollywood Reporter.  Its a must read.
