Reported by Justin on 27 Jul 2014 21:19

While we have yet to receive an official Lucasfilm/Disney statement announcing his involvement with Episode VIII and Episode IX (aside from these earlier comments made by one of his representatives), we do get the following brief comments from Rian Johnson as posted on Sun Times.

Johnson Skyped into the Filmspotting taping from San Fransisco, where he is already working on “Episode VIII.” The director of indie faves such as “Looper” says he took the job because “The thought of it made me so completely joyfully happy.

“I wanted to to play in this world, of literally the first movie my dad put me in the car to see,” he said. As for how he scored the gig, Johnson laughed, “I can only assume it was a clerical error, like in the movie ‘Brazil.’ There’s a Brian Johnson out there who is really mad.”
