Kasdan to write Star Wars spin-off movies?

November 29th, 2012 by Marc Comments

It seems that the return of Lawrence Kasdan to the Star Wars universe is not as clear cut as it first seemed.

The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that The Empire Strikes Back scribe is working with Simon Kinberg on separate projects and not necessarily Episode VIII and Episode IX.

While their scripts could turn into official “Episodes” in the main Skywalker storyline,they could also form the basis for spinoffs focusing on side characters.

None of this is official at the moment but it does give a twist on things and sound like Disney have big plans in store for our favourite space opera.

The only official news we have regarding writers is that Michael Arndt is producing scripts for the new sequel films.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
