J.J. Abrams Goes Full Tinfoil Hat to Avoid Leaking Star Wars Secrets

By Chris Mills on at

Trying to avoid a Tarantino moment, J.J. Abrams has revealed the extent of the security measures being used to prevent any kind of leak on the new Star Wars film -- measures you normally only see in a made-for-TV spy movie.

Abrams says that after the Khan leak in Star Trek (where everyone kinda knew what was going on with Benedict Cumberbatch's character from the get-go), he's trying to preserve a little mystique in the upcoming Star Wars reboot. Specifically, he said "I’m working on the Star Wars script today and the people in my office have covered up all my windows with black paper. I guess they wanted to make sure no one could see what I was doing…It seems rather extreme.”

Now, as long as the NSA don't get its grubby mitts on it...[TotalFilm]
