Star Wars Episode IX directors: who should replace Colin Trevorrow?


Now Deadline is reporting that a replacement has already been found, and Johnson will direct back-to-back Star Wars films, after finishing up on Star Wars: The Last Jedi, due out in December. It is obviously very hard to work with LucasFilm, the studio in charge of the Star Wars saga, which was bought by Disney in October 2012.

The seventh Star Wars film, The Force Awakens, which was directed by J.J. Abrams, took in more than US$2 billion at the box office in 2015.

It's easy - Star Wars fans quickly made suggestions as to who could direct. Michelle MacLaren, a director and producer who most recently directed the pilot episode of HBO's The Deuce, surfaced a couple of times.

Disney and Lucasfilm now looking for a new director to take his spot, according to Fox News. "Colin was a wonderful collaborator during the development process, but we came to the conclusion that our visions for the project differed", one can read.

The Hollywood Reporter, citing unnamed sources, said the main point of contention was ongoing "script issues", with Trevorrow being forced into several rewrites. We learn today of an official press release that LucasFilm and Colin Trevorrow have put an end to their collaboration.

Ron, who has a long history with George Lucas and Lucasfilm, is now busy filming Alden Ehrenreich, who plays the young Han Solo, Emilia Clarke and Woody Harrelson in the film, slated for a May release.

It was unclear why Ms Kennedy lost confidence in Trevorrow, who is best known for directing Jurassic World, which took in US$1.7 billion (S$2.3 billion) worldwide in 2015.

If there's one thing we can say about the Disney era of "Star Wars" movies, everything is amplified. Stars Wars: Episode XI is pencilled in to arrive in cinemas on 24 May 2019, with The Last Jedi hitting our screens later this year.

News of the decision sparked a frenzy of speculation on social media over who might be handed Trevorrow's job, as well as plenty of pithy barbs on the high turnover of Lucasfilm directors.

In a new interview with The New Your Times, Last Jedi's director, Rian Johnson, explains, pretty simply, that the Last Jedi is Luke. Duh. The film now has a May, 2019 release date.
