The Oscar-nominated director may lead the next STAR WARS standalone film.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Stephen Daldry is in early talks for the Obi-Wan Kenobi centered Star Wars film. Daldry is known for his work on films such as The Reader, Billy Elliot, and The Hours. As of right now, the movie is in its early stages and still without a script.
Ewan McGregor and Alec Guinness have both played the role of the Jedi-turned-hermit in the past. Obi-Wan’s complicated story would surely make for an interesting standalone, whether before or during the timeline of the original films.
In the meantime, we’ll keep waiting for the upcoming Han Solo movie! Be sure to let us know what you think of this potential new story.
