In keeping with The Hollywood Reporter, Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry is “in early talks” with Disney and Lucasfilm to direct a standalone Star Wars spin-off about Obi-Wan Kenobi, all people’s favourite desert hermit. The talks are apparently “on the earliest of levels” and there’s no script but, but when issues work out, Disney apparently needs Daldry to have a hand in crafting the entire challenge. Assuming that is all correct, then, it sounds just like the studio needs to ensure it has a director in place—ideally one who gained’t go off e book and have an excessive amount of enjoyable—earlier than it actually begins engaged on the film. Actually, issues are so early that no one is aware of if Ewan McGregor can be taking part in Kenobi once more, which additionally means it’s onerous for anybody to say if this can be a prequel to the prequels or a prequel to A New Hope.
As for Daldry, he’s the director behind The Hours, The Reader, Billy Elliot, and Extraordinarily Loud And Extremely Shut, none of which appear remotely much like a Star Wars film, however possibly Disney is planning for it to be extra of a drama story than an journey with house wizards.
