Not that it is unexpected, but news comes that Star Wars: Episode VII will at least look to be in part shot with IMAX cameras.
At a recent investors meeting, IMAX CEO Richard Gelfond offered the following (via AICN):
"We are talking to J.J. Abrams test now about the next Star Wars being used with partly IMAX cameras."
The above seems to not have been transcribed properly, but it's easy to understand what is meant. The full investors meeting is transcribed here.
J.J. Abrams did film about 30 minutes of Star Trek Into Darkness on IMAX, so there is that.
The IMAX CEO mentioned Abrams and Star Wars when plugging their camera with mention also made of Christopher Nolan's Interstellar and Batman movies, the Hunger Games films and Michael Bay filming Transformers 4.
"Star Wars: Episode VII" has a 2015 release.
