It looks like Ewan McGregor may be about to get his wish of reprising the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi, as THR is reporting that Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) is in talks with Lucasfilm to helm an Anthology movie based upon the legendary Jedi Knight.
The site reports that talks are at the earliest of stages, and there is currently no script for the film. Should a deal be reached, Daldry would oversee development and writing on the project, which is said to be one of several Anthology movies in the works at Lucasfilm.
Next up from the Star Wars franchise is December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, followed by the as-yet-untitled Han Solo spinoff in 2018 and Star Wars: Episode IX in 2019.
