Take this one with a grain of salt, and then take a little more salt, but according to a new article from the reputable site The Hollywood Reporter, Lucasfilm is working on an Obi-Wan Kenobi film. If you remember, Lucasfilm was supposed to reveal the next standalone film sometime around June, but the month came and went with no official announcement.
The Oscar-nominated director behind Billy Elliot and The Hours is in early talks to direct a Star Wars standalone movie centering on Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Sources say talks are at the earliest of stages and that the project has no script. If a deal makes, Daldry would oversee the development and writing with Lucasfilm brass. It’s not known at this stage if Ewan McGregor will reprise his role.
Now it seems like we might be gearing up for an official announcement sometime in the near future.
