Lucasfilm Partners With Damo Lindelo To Develop a New ‘Star Wars’ Film
A new Star Wars picture is expected to be created by Damon Lindelof for Lucasfilm. According to Deadline, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, who played Ms. Marvel, has been hired to direct the movie.
Although his writing partner is currently unclear, Lindelof is anticipated to co-write the script. It was crucial for Lucasfilm and Lindelof that their choice of filmmaker would execute their own concepts for the plot, sources close to the project told the publication.
The script is presently being produced. One of Hollywood’s closely-guarded secrets, the major narrative is still a mystery.
For Ms. Marvel, Obaid-Chinoy has previously directed a number of successful episodes. The collaboration with Lucasfilm seems a reasonable fit given the already-existing partnership with Disney.
The final movie in the Star Wars saga was Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, which came out in 2019. The release date for the new movie is unknown.
Henry Cavill has said that he will be playing Superman again.
A galaxy far, far away is where Damon Lindelof is traveling, or at least he is well on his way there.
A New “Star Wars” Picture Is Being Developed For Lucasfilm By The “Lost” Co-creator And “Watchmen” Executive Producer Who Won An Emmy.
A filmmaker has already begun work on the top-secret project: In talks to oversee the film is “Ms. Marvel” director and Oscar-winner Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy. The upcoming film will be co-written by Lindelof and promising star Justin Britt-Gibson (“Counterpart”).
If the idea is approved, it will be Lindelof’s fourth attempt to revive a significant sci-fi series. Lindelof produced “Star Trek” in 2009 and his reimagined continuation of “Watchmen” for HBO in 2019 for which he won Emmys for writing and limited series.
The project’s announcement comes as Lucasfilm faces a decision about “Star Wars.” Despite the studio’s live-action series for Disney+, such as “The Mandalorian,” “The Book of Boba Fett,” “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” and “Andor,” enjoying significant popularity, it hasn’t released a movie in theatres since 2019’s “The Rise of Skywalker.”
Rogue Squadron Was Scheduled To Be Released In December 2023, And Patty Jenkins Was Announced As The Film’s Director In 2020.
However, Disney removed the movie from its release schedule in September. However, none of the other “Star Wars” film projects in various stages of development, including those from Taika Waititi, Rian Johnson, and Kevin Feige, have been formally revealed, let alone assigned a release date. Currently, an unidentified “Star Wars” movie is scheduled to debut in December 2025.
Johnson recently revealed to Variety that his envisioned “Star Wars” trilogy is still in the works, but that he must first finish the production of his “Knives Out” films. Michael Waldron (“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”) revealed to Variety in May that he had begun writing a “Star Wars” story that Feige would produce. However, Waldron has already been hired to write “Avengers: Secret Wars,” so his dance card is going to get extremely full.

In addition to writing three episodes of Starz’s “The Counterpart,” Britt-Gibson also acted as executive story editor for the Guillermo Del Toro-produced “The Strain.”
