Star Wars: Episode IX is removing a rewrite.
Jack Thorne, a British clerk who wrote a arriving Julia Roberts-Jacob Tremblay film Wonder, has been tapped to work on a Star Wars installment that is to be destined by Colin Trevorrow.
Trevorrow and his essay partner, Derek Connolly, have been operative on a script, though sources contend a uninformed set of eyes was needed. It is misleading how endless a rewrites will be.
Rian Johnson wrote and directed Star Wars: The Last Jedi, a eighth installment of a sci-fi anticipation that opens Dec. 15.
Force Awakens stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver and Oscar Isaac are approaching to lapse — though we never know who a Star Wars film might kill off, so don’t get too gentle — with a ninth installment eyeing a prolongation start in Jan 2018.
The film has a scheduled recover date of May 24, 2019.
Thorne is a creator or co-creator of several British radio shows, dramas and thrillers, including The Fades, The Cast-Offs, The Last Panthers and National Treasure.
While those don’t sound like a Star Wars wheelhouse, his essay on dual some-more new programs brings him closer: His Dark Materials, BBC’s instrumentation of a anticipation by Philip Pullman, and Philip K. Dick’s Electric Sheep for Channel 4.
He is repped by UTA.
