Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn revealed in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter's Stephen Galloway that the next installment in the Star Wars saga has already begun shooting.
The actual sound bite, which appears in the segment of the interview featured above, goes as follows:
Galloway: You start shooting in six weeks?
Horn: "We're actually shooting some of it now."
There you have it. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Horn says the hardest part of supervising the film, thus far, has been casting – a task he says is nearly complete.
