Taika Waititi on His Future with Star Wars

Taika Waititi, who won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for his film “Jojo Rabbit,” sat down recently with Variety and was asked if he would consider doing a “Star Wars” movie.

“I would f——- love to,” Taika answered. “If it was right. I would want to do any kind of movie if it made sense, and if it felt not like career suicide.”

There have been rumors about Taika being asked to make a “Star Wars” movie, not surprising considering his role in “The Mandalorian” as IG-11 and his directing credit for an episode of the series… (which he directed from the comfort of a couch while wearing pajamas and surrounded by lava lamps!).

However, it seems that too much is being read into his association with people at Lucasfilm:

“I think people see me hanging out with people, especially with ‘Star Wars,’ and think I’m having some big discussions about it.”

Here’s hoping that this rumor someday becomes a reality!
