Taika Waititi in early talks to Develop a Star Wars Movie


Quote:
Taika Waititi, director of “Thor: Ragnarok” and “Jojo Rabbit,” is in early talks to develop a new “Star Wars” movie, Variety has confirmed.

There are no further details about how far those negotiations are with Waititi, nor what his involvement might ultimately be. But hot off of six Oscar nominations for “Jojo Rabbit,” Waititi is one of the most in-demand filmmakers in the industry, and “Star Wars” is “Star Wars,” so there we are.

Waititi recently directed the season finale of “The Mandalorian,” Lucasfilm’s breakout series for Disney Plus, and he also played the droid IG-11.

Given his recent history with the “Star Wars” universe, on Monday, Variety asked Waititi if he might be directing a “Star Wars” movie in the future.

“Oh, I don’t know anything about that,” Waititi said. “But ‘Mandalorian’ was my chance to work with some stormtroopers.”

But Waititi said he definitely would want to take the reins of a “Star Wars” movie.

“Obviously I would, but I’m going to just settle for IG-11 being the hero of the entire season,” he said.

Representatives for Disney and Waititi had no comment.
Variety.

I have to admit that Thor:R has been a go to favorite of mine for some time. For some reason I can just mindlessly watch that movie and enjoy it.

It has pizzaz.

I don't know if his brand of StoryTelling/Humor is adequate for Star Wars..

but well neither Rian Johnnson or JJ Abrhams worked so why the hell not...

I enjoyed it quite a bit too, though it is a bit polarizing. My biggest complaint is that they take the best scene and put it in the very beginning.

I have to agree that his face has become "smugier" with the passing of time.

Depends on if Kathleen Kennedy gets to pick or they let someone with some sense pick.

Kennedy LOVES her high profile teams, it's like a feather in her cap if she's able to talk some of the current "hip" people in the industry to come to Star Wars regardless of their suitability (we can start with JJ Abrams as an example).

If someone with some sense picks then it will be on the merit of their ideas not just the flavor of the month director/actor/writer.

And that may mean this guy gets his shot, but it won't hopefully just because then they can slap on "OSCAR NOMINATED (whatever)" in the PR material.

Ragnarok was shit. He turned Thor into a bumbling idiot.

That might be just the thing for Star Wars, but we've done that already. It was called SPACEBALLS.
