STAR WARS: Is There A Script In The Works For A KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC Movie?
This is most definitely just a rumor for now, but AICN reckon there is a possibility that among the many other Star Wars projects in the works at Disney/Lucasfilm, an adaptation of the best selling video game may also be on the cards..
Before we get to the rumor itself, AICN also have some info on the current state of all Star Wars projects at Disney right now. Harry Knowles' sources have confirmed that although there are lots of possibilities flying around and ideas in the air, the only movie that is in "hardcore active development" is Star Wars Episode VII. So all those Yoda, Han and Boba movies? Nothing is certain..yet. With that being said, he goes on to reveal that Drew Karpyshyn - the man that created the scenario and much of the dialogue in not only the KOTOR game but many others too - might just be working on a sceenplay for a Knights Of The Old Republic (a tale set 4,000 years before the rise of the Galactic Empire) movie. Apparently Karpyshyn left BIOWARE back in February of last year to work on "screenwriting" and the rumor mill has thrown up the notion that he's been hired to work on the script. There's nothing very solid here, but Knowles says he's reached out to Karpyshyn, and has not yet heard back so we'll update when and if we find out more.
