Abrams: Episode VII filming begins in May, casting details will come “soon”

USA Today has more out of J.J. Abrams at TCA. “That’s the current plan,” he said when asked about a May start date. That’s later than the April rumors, for anyone looking to for something extra to get “concerned” over.

And of course…

“We can’t talk about story yet,” said the director, who plans to travel to England soon to begin work on the seventh film in the long-running saga. As far as casting, he had no details but said they will come “soon, and I look forward to that so that we can get past it and we can get on with it.”

“Soon.” Sigh. (via)
