Director Taika Waititi, who has helmed movies like "Thor: Ragnarok" and "Jojo Rabbit", is reportedly in early talks to develop a new "Star Wars" movie.
There are no details about how far those negotiations are with Waititi, nor what his involvement might be. Waititi did appear to respond to reports, with a little help from band Fleetwood Mac, in a tongue-in-cheek tweet on Thursday, reports Variety.
Waititi recently directed the season finale of "The Mandalorian", Lucasfilm's series for Disney Plus, and he also played the droid IG-11.
Variety had recently 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.
In a bid to break down the complexities of the entire universe and what the audience can take away from the stories, Ridley quipped, “If you took away the space element, the movie is basically just about people trying to figure it out. They are being confronted with really difficult obstacles and the different and moving stories happening across, are all interlinked. Everything has a cause and effect that affects the fate of the galaxy.”
All this would appear to point to a fruitful relationship between Waititi and the current masterminds of the Star Wars universe, so long as Waititi is interested.
