Rian Johnson will write and direct the eighth Star Wars movie.

Johnson, who directed Brick and Looper, takes over the franchise from J.J. Abrams, who is now shooting Episode VII in London. Johnson will also write the treatment for Episode IV, but will not direct it.

He also directed three episodes of Breaking Bad, including "Ozymandias," which many considered the series' best.

Episode VII is set to come out in December 2015. A a new Star Wars is scheduled to be release every year after that.
