Rian Johnson Tweeted His Response to Star Wars News — He Just Doesn’t Want to Eff Up

Rian Johnson's response to the flurry of excitement surrounding the news that he's writing and directing Star Wars Episode VIII and writing the treatment for Episode IX? Tweeting a clip of Scott Glenn as Alan Shepard in 1983's The Right Stuff. And it's pretty much a confirmation. Rian's exact thoughts, here:

Shepard: Dear Lord, please don't let me fuck up.
Cooper: I didn't quite copy that. Say again, please.
Shepard: I said everything's a-OK.

Don't fuck it up, Rian. You've got the right stuff.
