Simon Kinberg Writing New Star Wars Film?

Published

on

Simon Kinberg

This seems to have come straight out of left field. In what amounts to a throw away line in a recent Deadline report about a new Logan’s Run film, the site claims that Simon Kinberg is currently working on a script for a new Star Wars film.

Kinberg, whose Jessica Chastain-fronted X-Men movie comes out in November, is best known for producing Deadpool and Logan. He is currently writing a forthcoming Star Wars movie, having been responsible for creating animated series Star Wars Rebels.

So what could this possibly mean? Is it the long rumored Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone film? Could it be the standalone Boba Fett movie that was abandoned after the firing of Josh Trank? Or could this be something entirely new that we will not learn about for some time? Perhaps he is just working on a script with another writer like Rian Johnson or JJ Abrams…

I guess we will find out eventually, but until then, let us know what new Star Wars film you would like to see in theaters.

Ron Howard

WARNING! SPOILERS below! If you have not seen the movie yet, DO NOT continue on! Now that the Solo: A Star Wars Story has been in release a few weeks, Ron Howard has started talking about the future of the franchise. He recently sat down with the people at Empire Magazine to discuss some of the reveals from the film, and the future of these characters in more films.

Not only does he discuss the potential of more films and even spin-offs from this one, but he talks about the references to Crimson Dawn and the other crime syndicates that are operating in this section of the official Star Wars timeline. He also talks about how the Kessel Run and the Millennium Falcon‘s escape pod were originally intended. He also talks about the appearance of a certain Sith Lord (well technically he isn’t one in this film), and more!

UPDATED – Lando Calrissian Getting a Spin-Off Film Next?

Donald Glover as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story

UPDATE – io9 contacted Lucasfilm to confirm the information below, and was told that the quote was a tad bit mistranslated. It seems that Kennedy said the moving is something she would like to see at some point in the future.

Solo: A Star Wars Story doesn’t premiere for another week in the US, but it seems plans are already in the works for the next spin-off film in the Star Wars franchise. While talking with Premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy confirmed the studio’s plans for a Lando Calrissian movie.

“We think that the next spin-off will be dedicated to Lando Calrissian. Of course, there are still many stories to tell about Han and Chewbacca but Lando will be next.”

With the reviews coming in and the acclaim being given to Donald Glover for his portrayal of Lando Calrissian, this seems like a no-brainer for Lucasfilm. As always leave your thoughts in the appropriate places!

What Did Rian Johnson Think of Solo: A Star Wars Story?

Rian Johnson

With the red carpet premiere of Solo: A Star Wars Story behind us, first thoughts about the film are starting to hit the Internet. One of the bigger names revealing their thoughts on the film is Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. Some fans will read his comments as nothing more than a Disney shill, while others might actually respect them (depends on which side of the fence you are on regarding The Last Jedi), and you have your right to those opinions.

Either way, you can check out his thoughts that he left on Imgur below!

Rian Johnson’s thoughts

You can read his comments below…

Donald Glover is great in it, but duh. Alden is terrific, he’s not doing a Harrison Ford impersonation but he brings his own charm and swagger to the character. The big surprise for me was Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Bridge-Waller?) who has a few of the funniest moments I’ve ever seen in a Star Wars movie. I had never watched Fleabag (I know, I know, I need to watch it — I’m loving Killing Eve but she’s not in that, she only wrote it) so it was a pleasant surprise. The action scenes are true great. But who’s going to read this and take me seriously? I’d like to think I’d still be honest but it’s not like you’re going to come to my Instagram story for hard-edged film criticism on a Star Wars movie. See it though, it’s super fun. I should get back to writing. Jesus, what have I typed.
