Star Wars live action series has working title

January 10th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Star Wars producer Rick McCallum has revealed that the long awaited live action TV series has a working title… Star Wars: Underworld.

While the show is still on hold because of money issues, McCallum told IGN that the series wouldn’t be too far off and that it would concentrate on the “criminals and gangs” of the Star Wars universe.

“It’s underneath what’s going on,” he said. “It’s the criminals and the gangs. The guys who are running Wall Street, basically. The guys who are running the United States.”

While the series is still a few years away, McCallum says there’s no risk in the scripts dating.

“They’re timeless,” he continued. “They take place between Episode III and Episode IV. That 20 year period when Luke is growing up. It’s not about Luke, but it’s about that period when the Empire is trying to take things [over].”

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….
