At Star Wars Celebration in April, Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy said they were "developing something to look at" based on Bioware's game series Knights of the Old Republic. The idea of a KotOR movie sure got our attention. And now it looks like we know what that something is: a script from writer and producer Laeta Kalogridis, according to three insiders who spoke to Buzzfeed News.
"Kalogridis is close to finishing the first script of a potential KotOR trilogy, according to the three sources," writes Buzzfeed.
A script doesn't guarantee that a Knights of the Old Republic movie will actually be made, let alone lead a trilogy. But with Star Wars pledging to move on from the Skywalker saga with Episode 9 this year, the Old Republic is obviously fertile ground, full of Jedi and Sith alike. Crazier things have happened.
Kalogridis was the showrunner for Netflix's sci-fi series Altered Carbon, based on the (much better) novel by Richard Morgan. Her other credits include the screenplays for Alexander (yikes), Shutter Island, Terminator Genisys, and Alita: Battle Angel.
