Episode VII Breaking News: American Actors Halt British Accent Practice En masse

Did you ever notice that foreign actors can usually pull off an American accent much better than American actors can pull off any of the myriad of British accents?  Well I guess it's one lest thing we have to worry about in Star Wars Episode VII.  Those Coruscanti and Imperial accents should be in full effect in the Sequel Trilogy with today's not surprising news about production beginning in London likely in early (January) 2014.

Star Wars: Episode VII director J.J. Abrams made some comments at the Producers Guild of America's Produced by Conference 2013.

J.J. Abrams says he will be moving to London at the end of the year for production on Star Wars: Episode VII, likely to begin early 2014.
"We are, most likely, if all goes as planned, going to be moving to London at the end of the year for the Star Wars movie," Abrams said Saturday at the Produced By Conference.

Abrams noted that he would have preferred to shoot "Episode VII" closer to home in LA., but Disney had planned a U.K. shoot even before he signed on to direct. 

I guess this means me crashing the shooting locations of Episode VII is out.
