New details emerge in a report that states Disney and J.J. Abrams will in part film Star Wars: Episode VII in the United States.

When it was first announced that J.J. Abrams was coming on board to direct Star Wars: Episode VII with the movie to be filmed over in London, the director came out that he wasn't too happy about the move.

Following that, rumors surfaced stating J.J. Abrams was even thinking of walking away from the franchise.

The rumors have not since been confirmed, but now the new report states Abrams' Bad Robot Productions, located in Los Angeles, is getting an overhaul to accomodate some of the Star Wars: Episode VII filming.

The Hollywood Reporter has it from a source that a new green room, sound and other fascilities for post-production will be developed at Bad Robot Productions specifically for J.J. Abrams to film Star Wars: Episode VII. It's noted that Abrams has previously filmed all his other work at the LA location, and that he even went out of his way coughing up his own money to keep Star Trek Into Darkness there.

Abrams previously said he wasn't happy about the movie because of his family and young children.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" has a 2015 release directed by J.J. Abrams.
