Abrams planning to go old school for the picture…
According to a report from the Boba Fett Fan Club, the new Star Wars sequel will in fact be shot on 35mm film.
The report indicated that cinematographer during an industry event, cinematographer Dan Mindel said that he is not only shooting the movie for director J.J. Abrams, but he will also be doing so on traditional 35mm film instead of digital. Abrams has been resistant in the past on making the jump toward digital.
Mindel previously shot Abrams' Star Trek movies and also shot John Carter. He recently wrapped The Amazing Spider-Man 2 as well.
