JJ Abrams has confirmed that the script for Star Wars: Episode VII is completed.

Abrams has teamed up with Lawrence Kasdan to pen the new and highly anticipated instalment to the Star Wars franchise.

Speaking to The Wrap, the director said: "We’re working really hard and we’ve got our script and we’re in deep prep. Full steam ahead, y’know."

Abrams also confirmed that he had met with actor Jesse Plemons to talk about a possible role in the film.

"He is one of the actors that we’ve talked to, yeah. But, you know. It’s not often that I read about actors that I’m going to be meeting... that I get to read articles about actors who are going to come in.

"And so I get to see someone and say, ‘Oh, I read that I’m going to see you.’... It’s usually agents talking to people about what’s happening. It’s a lot of noise."

There have been no announcements about the cast for the film, however, a whole host of actors have been linked to the project.

Saoirse Ronan, Benedict Cumberbatch and Simon Pegg are just some of the actors who have been linked to talks and roles in the film.

Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher are also expected to reprise their roles from the original series.

Filming on Star War: Episode VII is expected to get underway this year for the 2015 release.
