Has Steven Moffat Been Offered A STAR WARS Directing/Writing Gig?

They're not sure if it'll be one of the films in the new trilogy or a stand-alone flick, but Jedi News reckon the man behind the likes of Doctor Who and Sherlock has been approached to helm, or write, a new Star Wars movie.

Jedi News are reporting that Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat is being eyed for one of the new Star Wars movies. In exactly what capacity that might be is unclear, as they say he could have been approached to be a writer, producer or director. If it's for one of the new trilogy installments it'd presumably be the final one which doesn't yet have an announced team aboard, but it could also be for one of the spin-offs. The site have been a pretty consistent source of info for these movies, though it remains to be seen if certain things they've posted will pan out -- so we'll have to take it as a rumor for now. But if Moffat was to take the reigns on a future Star Wars movie, we can't see too many fans complaining...right?

I don't like that there's gonna be a Star Wars movie every year. It takes away from Star Wars being an "event". But I'll still be at the theater for each of then that comes out

Interesting..

They confirmed a director for Episode 8 right? I'm loosing track.

@Mrsinister Completely agree.
Nick56 - 7/9/2014, 5:54 PM
@JordanKing The guy that did looper is confirmed for ep.8
Nick56 - 7/9/2014, 5:55 PM
I hope Moffat writes and/or directs Ep.9

Interesting, I guess.

I too don't want a Star Wars movie every year!

I sincerely doubt it.

Disney should however keep things a little more secret. They shouldn't announce 4 directors in the course of just a couple of months.

The last installment of the trilogy has Rian Johnson. He is doing both episodes 8&9 where he will write and direct them.

@Nick56 That's it. Solid choice. I can't see Moffat handling something as big as Episode 9 or whatever (or even for Disney to place that gamble), but a spin-off feature might work.

It's Star Wars night at the Pirates-Cards game in St. Louis. I think I saw yoss there drunk off his ass dressed as Princess Leia.

"Moffat" is pretty fun to say.
MrSotoMan - 7/9/2014, 6:09 PM
To be completely honest...

This is the biggest chance to hire big name directors, and they choose show runners.........please stop.

Moleleeleleleleleleelelffffaaaaaaat.

Kinda sounds like Moleffat of you slur it enough.

All Doctor Who fans would just hate the movie, even if it's great. Most of Doctor Who fans hate Moffat, even when he does something awesome...

I love that we're getting Star Wars every year! As long as the movies stay awesome I see no problem with it

ALEGENDARYPANDA-EXACTLY MY THOUGHTS ASWELL!!

I know it'll never happen, but I'm just saying...It would be really cool...If we got an animated Star Wars film by Hayao Miyazaki
