Michael Kaplan is all stitched up to costume design for Star Stars

Michael Kaplan, Star Wars Costume Designer
Kaplan’s most recent film to feature his costume designs Star Trek Into Darkness is doing quite well at the box office. I imagine the next film he works on will blow that box office out of the water however as his work is going to be in a little film currently known as Star Wars Episodode VII.

The popular designer whose credits include Blade Runner, I am Legend and Fight Club, Se7en and Miami Vice revealed to the world:

"I’ve just learned I’ll be working on the new Star Wars movie, again with J.J. Everything just got formalized [last week], I haven’t even had the chance to talk to anyone about it all other than to be told ‘welcome aboard.’

Buzzfeed asked Kaplan: Is sci-fi your favorite film genre to work with?

Kaplan's Tyler Durden
“I wouldn’t say I have a favorite film genre to work on… but I would say I don’t think sci-fi would be my favorite. Does that sound strange? I think what I really like working with is simply a great script.

And that’s what is so great about Star Trek, for example — I was even more impressed when I saw the script for Into Darkness: there’s detail and there’s wit and it’s smart. Full of things that are not often the case in big tentpole movies."

If film director David Fincher approves of this guy (and think about who cool Tyler Durdern looked in Se7en) then I approve of JJ Abram's choice to give him this job! 

As an aside, HOW cool would it be if David Fincher did a Star Wars film? He would be a great candidate to direct one of the self contained films - he could make it nice and dark.
