STAR WARS: Is There A Script In The Works For A KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC Movie?

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.

In fact,replace all firearms in every action movie with light sabers...imagine James Bond with one. Awesome!

MrMxyzptlk, sorry you didn't like the article, but care to tell me how the title was misleading?
DaenerysTargaryen - 2/22/2013, 7:11 PM
Huh....I could live with that. But enough with spin offs....give me more Episode VII news!
polarkyle - 2/22/2013, 7:13 PM
I'm totally cause we finally GET TO SEE MORE SIth than just the 6 in the entire saga. but i want to see a force unleased movie.
XavierLehnsherr - 2/22/2013, 7:13 PM
I just want to know why JJ Abrams wants Chloe Moretz for this.

I like Star Wars games. Maybe even more than the movies. There's a large universe to explore and I'd like to see on the big screen.

Good rumor.
Funsize - 2/22/2013, 7:15 PM
yay :)
Christuffer - 2/22/2013, 7:16 PM
Both KOTOR games need to be trilogies. And the second one is much much better
Durf - 2/22/2013, 7:16 PM
I'd be down for it
RorMachine - 2/22/2013, 7:18 PM
Never played em..might have to remedy that.
InfiniteMonkey - 2/22/2013, 7:22 PM
Just Get It Done and Quit Talking About It!
RorMachine - 2/22/2013, 7:25 PM
Second thoughts, just read up on sounds great but I HATE turn based combat. They need to make a Star Wars game with the same RPG structure, but with the combat system from something like Skyrim.
Christuffer - 2/22/2013, 7:26 PM
@RorMachine - Definitely get them on PC. Very low specs required. For the second game, make sure you download the Restored Content mod, changes the game completely. Best Star Wars game ever made, KoTOR II

This would be cool.
theomegasanction - 2/22/2013, 7:27 PM
i'd rather see this than a han or boba movie. think it would be good to see different characters
DioFoRio - 2/22/2013, 7:32 PM
Jesus this is getting old now. I hope they hold a conference or at least just publicly state some concrete info ya know?
shamo - 2/22/2013, 7:34 PM
i swear this is like the 6th Star Wars script i've heard about. well, good for you Star Wars fans. its good to know the studios with the power to make the movies is infact making the movies. unlike WB.
DioFoRio - 2/22/2013, 7:35 PM
I'm hoping this will be the man of steel for the star wars franchise...shit ..I'm still hoping the man of steel is the man of steel for the superman franchise. Gonna be weird seeing a Star Wars movie with some "life" put back in it.
Sanderman - 2/22/2013, 7:59 PM
DO IT! If anything just bring it back to that timeline and let these spinoffs be completely different characters than those of the original trilogy
Wingding - 2/22/2013, 8:01 PM
YES PLEASE. If it's even similar to the TOR cinematics then I am sooo cool with this.
Shadowelfz - 2/22/2013, 8:29 PM
That will be boss!
ISleepNow - 2/22/2013, 8:31 PM
Finally! Somebody listens..


Durango95 - 2/22/2013, 8:35 PM
I wish they would do a movie about the Old Republic.I would love to see stories of the Jedi and Sith that existed before the prequels.Make it happen!
superotherside - 2/22/2013, 8:38 PM
I would really like this. Personally I'd like them to reboot Star Wars and build up to a new Luke/Darth Vader story over like 15 to 20 years of films.
bazinga85 - 2/22/2013, 8:50 PM
I'm gonna play devil's advocate with everyone and say this is a bad idea.
JatevinM - 2/22/2013, 9:05 PM
I remember the cinematic trailers for this and I'd love to see it done as a movie.
Christuffer - 2/22/2013, 9:07 PM
I'll say it again. Each game needs to be a trilogy, and the adaptation of the second game needs to be perfect. Like, The Dark Knight kind of perfect
Gamma022 - 2/22/2013, 9:14 PM
BubblesShedAndBreakfast - 2/22/2013, 9:17 PM
This is the first rumor that actually got me excited!!!:D
Brady1138 - 2/22/2013, 9:24 PM
Cool idea, but I'll believe it when I see it.
SamHell - 2/22/2013, 9:37 PM
Force Unleashed would be better
stejam13 - 2/22/2013, 9:42 PM
while i would love a Knights of the old Republic movie i dont want a re-hash of the games do something new set maybe a thousand years before or after the games
Moakynubs - 2/22/2013, 9:55 PM
Please god yes. Even if it's a "Prequel" set during the Mandalorian wars.
Mego - 2/22/2013, 10:18 PM
You can see a pattern existing from most studios regarding film franchises.
When they dont have a thing done to reveal, they supplement nothingness with a little rumor here and there.
But these damn Star Wars rumors are getting really old. The franchise isnt such a big deal anymore but someone keeps leaking BS just to get people talking as they hope to build anticipation.
F*** Star Wars! And F*** the Disney bastards who are toying with people to get attention with these "leaks".
616 - 2/22/2013, 10:25 PM
Oh god yea please yes....

Never played the game, but I'm sick of the pre-New Hope Star Wars ideas. Wrap it up with 7-9. The cow has been milked plenty!
