Sony email leak gives credence to Han Solo dying theory!

The merits of commenting on a stolen email aside, here's an interesting piece of writing from Production for Columbia Pictures Michael De Luca discussing Disney's Star Wars with Sony Pictures Entertainment co-Chairman Amy Pascal who will now be infamously entangled in the hacked emails leak.

“Star Wars: Any studio would have lost josh trank and rian Johnson to this, it's freaking Star Wars. Your After Earth writer Gary Whitta is writing Gareth Edwards stand alone Star Wars film. Simon Kinberg is writing Josh Tranks. No one knows what they're about but Boba Fett is rumored to be the subject of one. Rian Johnson as you know is doing the main ones, episodes 8 and 9 of the Luke and Leia story lines, after JJ. Not sure anything is gained by looking at what Lucasfilm is doing except we are stalking all these people too, except Whitta whom I think blows.”

If you've been lurking around you may have read my theory that I think Han Solo dies in The Force Awakens – my reasoning is that this gig is a one picture deal for Ford so he can get another Indiana Jones film made.  

The reference to films 8 and 9 being “Luke and Leia story lines” seems quite telling. If we presume that De Luca is truly in the know, he would have said if Han was a major factor. If we make an a priori deduction, Han isn't featured and thus is dead! 

Maybe this is a bit of a stretch but time will tell.
