24 Feb – The attempt to develop new upcoming "Star Wars" movies has been rocky but the Force is still strong with this franchise, as Lucasfilm has recently tapped a new director to develop a new story of the galaxy far, far away.
J.D. Dillard, whose feature directorial efforts include 2019's "Sweetheart" and 2016's "Sleight", is developing the new movie, though it is unclear whether he will also be directing it.
Deadline is reporting that the movie will supposedly be set on Exegol, the hidden Sith Planet that was introduced in last year's "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker". If this is true, it might shine more light on the Sith Eternal cult.
Dillard will be developing the project with Matt Owens, who is known for his writing works on Marvel TV series "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.", "Luke Cage", and "The Defenders".
