Star Wars: Rian Johnson Comments on Possibility of Directing Episode IX

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens on December 15th, while Star Wars: Episode IX is aiming for a May 24th, 2020 debut. "His "Star Wars" predecessor J.J. Abrams" name also came up. He told CinemaBlend, "I knock on his door every day, and I'm like, 'Am I in the movie yet?" Maybe it's time for a fresh set of eyes to look over the final instalment (for now) of a galaxy far, far away. This should come as no surprise, given that the actor has appeared in all three of Johnson's films, Looper, Brick, and even an uncredited role in The Brothers Bloom.

Probability of Accuracy: Take with as many grains of salt as necessary.

Abrams and Rian Johnson, who helmed "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", had smooth shoots on their respective "Star Wars" productions.

Kathy, of course, is eight-time Academy Award-nominated Lucasfilm president/Star Wars brand manager Kathleen Kennedy, who found herself beneath the red-hot scrutiny of Movie Twitter in June after firing co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller from the Han Solo spinoff prequel. If he does not return for Episode IX, then Disney will be looking to fill Trevorrow's boots pretty quickly and will be in contact with several directors over the coming days, one would imagine. The companies see Abrams as the ideal fit for "Episode IX", given his proven track record in the "Star Wars" universe. Credit to LucasFilm, they've managed to keep this under wraps as well as, if not better than, The Force Awakens.

Hope Hicks Named Trump White House Communications Director
Previous media reports claimed that former Fox News contributor Mercedes Schlapp would receive the position. Staffers view Hicks as a strong fit for the position because of her close ties to the president.

The site's sources stated that: "He had an egotistical point of view-and he was always asserting that". He's entirely right about it being in the crawl for The Force Awakens; it's right there in the first paragraph.

"So no, I'm not really thinking about that now", Johnson said. "And it's absolutely tied up in that question of, What is Luke's attitude towards the Jedi?"

The latter is, of course, the record breaking 2015 blockbuster franchise revival smash hit which Trevorrow helmed after just having one tiny Sundance darling indie film under his belt. "I want to be in the movie!' We'll see". "Sit down and see who [will be] the next filmmaker". "The fascinating thing about Kylo and Rey is that they're two sides of something", Johnson said.

"That's something that we're definitely going to dig into", he said. It was an honor to be in his first movie. Star Wars fans alarmed by The Book of Henry'stoxic reviews and box officebegan expressing doubt over Trevorrow being handed the keys to their favorite franchise - to the extent that Trevorrow had to publicly defend his gig shortly after The Book of Henry's release.
