Drew Karpyshyn Addresses STAR WARS: KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC Movie Rumor

After a rumor last night suggested that Star Wars: Knights Of The Old Republic writer Drew Karpyshyn was working on a movie adaptation of the hit game, he now says that he hasn't heard anything about such a film.



Last night, a rumor went online saying that among the many Star Wars film projects in development at Disney/LucasFilm was an adaptation of the hit RPG Knights Of The Old Republic. The rumor stated that Drew Karpyshyn, who wrote the game as well as its sequel and The Old Republic, was working on the script. However, the writer has now taken to his Twitter account to address this rumor.




Of course, this doesn't necessarily mean that a Knights Of The Old Republic movie isn't in the works, as a different screenwriter could be penning such a project. Of course, the only Star Wars film that is in active development is J.J. Abrams' Episode VII, which may hit theaters in 2015. It has also been confirmed that, in addition to a new trilogy, stand-alone films will be released every 2-3 years. Various characters spin-offs such as Yoda, Han Solo and Boba Fett have all been suggested. Do you want to see a Knights Of The Old Republic movie?
