Kevin Feige developing a Star Wars film!
----------------------------------------
In a surprising move (which shouldn't actually surprise anyone),
The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Marvel Studios president
Kevin Feige is developing a Star Wars movie with Kathleen
Kennedy. Walt Disney Studios co-chairman and chief creative
officer Alan Horn confirmed the news in a statement to THR,
saying:

"We are excited about the projects Kathy and the Lucasfilm
team are working on, not only in terms of Star Wars but
also Indiana Jones and reaching into other parts of the
company including Children of Blood and Bone with Emma
Watts and Fox. With the close of the Skywalker Saga,
Kathy is pursuing a new era in Star Wars storytelling,
and knowing what a die-hard fan Kevin is, it made sense
for these two extraordinary producers to work on a Star
Wars film together."

The trade notes that the project does not stem from a potential
move of Feige from Marvel Studios to Lucasfilm, but simply the
producer's passion for the franchise. Kennedy remains the
president of Lucasfilm and will stay in that position for the
foreseeable future.

Further speaking about the film, THR notes that Feige has
reportedly "told a major actor" that there is a role for them in
the film if the project gets off the ground.

Feige has long been a vocal fan of the Star Wars franchise,
going so far as to include a character getting a hand/limb
severed in EVERY Phase 2 movie from Marvel Studios as a nod to
Luke Skywalker's hand amputation in The Empire Strikes Back.
Countless jokes and references to the galaxy far, far away have
been peppered into the MCU as well, such as Peter Parker's
reference to "that old movie" (also referring to Episode V).

When could the film be released? It's unclear, but might not be
for a few years. Both Feige and Lucasfilm have their hands full
with a variety of projects. Marvel Studios just unveiled a slate
of films and television series through at least 2022, plus the
recent acquisition of the 20th Century Fox brand means the X-Men
and Fantastic Four will be having their own homecoming to the MCU
in the near future. As for Lucasfilm, Star Wars: The Rise of
Skywalker will debut this December, with three more untitled Star
Wars movies already set for 2022, 2024, and 2026. It's believed
that these release dates belong to the trilogy from Game of
Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss', but a trilogy
from The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson also remains in
development with likely other unannounced Star Wars projects in
the wings (not to mention Indiana Jones andĀ Children of Blood and
Bone).

My brain just got a serious cramp trying to imagine a MCU-Star Wars
crossover. I'm sending you the medical bill.
