The director Rian Johnson is to direct and write the next two sequels to the Star Wars series. Star Wars: Episode VIII and Star Wars: Episode IX are likely to be directed by Rian Johnson.

Rian Johnson is a very competent director who made such blockbusters as Looper, Brick and Breaking Bad. Now he will be teaming up with J.J. Abrams in order to make the sequel to Star Wars

Deadline reported, "Lucasfilm is making a deal with Looper writer-director Rian Johnson to write and direct Star Wars Episodes VIII and IX. Essentially, that means that the intention is for Johnson to take the baton from JJ Abrams, who has gotten the space franchise off the ground and is right now helming Episode VII."

However, Rian Johnson hasn’t commented immediately on the reports of making the next two Star Wars films. Over the next half a decade or so, some six Star Wars movies will get directed. And their directors have already been decided upon. They include among them Rian Johnson. 

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy officially announced the news. She said, "We're thrilled to welcome Josh into the family. He is such an incredible talent and has a great imagination and sense of innovation." That makes him perfectly suited to Star Wars, and for this new slate of movies that reach beyond the core characters and storylines of Episodes I through IX."

After the official announcement of the news, Rian Johnson tweeted a short clip from the 1983 space classic, The Right Stuff. See the clip below.

Other Star Wars directors include J.J. Abrams, Lawrence Kasdan, Gareth Edwards, Josh Trank. J.J. Abrams is currently working on Star Wars: Episode VII. He also writes the screenplay with Kasdan and this Star Wars installment will hit theaters in December 2015.

Chronicle‘s Josh Trank and Godzilla‘s Gareth Edwards will direct the two Star Wars spin offs that are still unnamed. These spin offs will come out in 2016 and 2018. 

It looks like Disney and Lucasfilm has "a strategy of entrusting the venerable franchise to the best and brightest writers and directors."

It’s been almost half a century since the series got going. And Rian will be doing everything to bring the eighth and ninth segments of the series into existence. 

Three years from now (in 2017) 40-year-old Rian will get to shoot Star Wars: Episode VIII. And Star Wars: Episode IX will figure somewhere in the plans too. 

As Johnson is directing the Episode IX, he’ll technically write that second installment too but "the intention on both sides is that he direct the two installments." However, Ram Bergman will join him as the producer.

And while Johnson may not have as many films to his name, his fame is so widespread that the Net burst into a flurry of praise and exuberating at his recent re-entry into this game of cinematography.

An example of Johnson’s genius is his film Brick. He had to make it on a shoestring budget and employ his own forces and resources. Yet somehow he managed to make it through and that too beautifully. 

The youthful actors and actresses he hired were given directions in a very skillful manner and they performed extraordinarily on screen. Brick cast include Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Nora Zehetner, and Lucas Haas.  

The story of Brick "recreates the best of the Marlowe, Spade, and Gittes-style hardboiled detective genre." The film reminds one of Sergio Leone and David Lynch in its imagery. 

And Johnson also directed a few of Breaking Bad’s episodes. One of these, titled “Ozymandius”, was absolutely fantastic and made for avid viewing. It features the brutal death of one of the characters via weapons. 

Breaking Bad’s creator Vince Gilligan says “is the best episode we ever had or ever will have.” And it remained on top of the Time Magazine's television episodes rating in 2013. The Daily Beast called it “easily the most eventful in Breaking Bad history. But it was also one of the most heartbreaking.”

 

Johnson has ability and a strange and uncanny ability to depict the unconscious in a surreal way on screen. His movie Looper showed Bruce Willis returning to the past in order to shoot himself. 

Rian is a maestro of special effects too. The man deserves a standing ovation and lots of applause. He will make magic happen for audiences everywhere via his Star Wars episodes (8th and 9th). And no one can stop him at his game for he is the best.
