Taika Waititi Approached To Develop A ‘Star Wars’ Project

Taika Waititi has reportedly been approached about making a Star Wars movie

Of course, he went on to helm the final episode of Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian, as well as voicing the robot IG-11. Now, Disney and Lucasfilm want more.

Now it looks like he might be getting that chance: A new report from The Hollywood Reporter says that the Thor: Ragnarok director has been approached about potentially developing a new Star Wars movie. It's unknown at this time whether this is the same Star Wars movie now being developed by Kevin Feige, or something else entirely, though if it's the former it wouldn't be terribly surprising: after all, Feige and Waititi already worked together on the aforementioned Thor: Ragnarok. We don't know if Waititi's gonna take the gig, we don't know who might star in it, we don't know what it'll be about or when it'll be set. Through its narrow canon, the tone of Star Wars has always been determinedly self-serious, whereas the Marvel movies, like the decades of comics they sprang from, veer wildly from high drama to low comedy. "There were no machine gun blasters in the 'Star Wars" universe.' He knows everything about it, everything".

Gardai issued an appeal for information following the discovery of human body parts in north Dublin. The teen had received threats he would be murdered and dismembered, Irish news outlet RTE reported.

"Waititi's "Jojo Rabbit" was nominated for six Oscars on Monday morning, including Best Picture, Best Supporting Actress, Costume Design, Film Editing, Adapted Screenplay and Production Design". And it helps that Disney and Lucasfilm already have a relationship with Waititi from his work on The Mandalorian.
