15 potential writers for STAR WARS
With the latest trilogy slated to begin in 2015, there's a new contender for the most coveted writing gig in Hollywood.
George Lucas has "mapped out" three new Star Wars films, according to Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger. Who will continue the saga of the Jedi and the Sith?
Today, we take a look at some notable writers (in no particular order) who could offer a fresh take.
Lawrence Kasdan: writer of Star Wars saga, Episode V -- The Empire Strikes Back.
Damon Lindelof: co-writer of Prometheus & Cowboys & Aliens
Kevin Smith: godfather of the "Pop Culture Star Wars Reference
Joss Whedon: projects, sequel to Marvel's The Avengers, the S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series
Robert Kirkman: comic books The Walking Dead & Dead Jedi tend to return as ghostly holograms.
Max Landis: comic book realm, penning a story in DC's Action Comics
Roberto Orci & Alex Kurtzman: Transformers & Star Trek franchises, Impossible III & Fringe
Lana & Andy Wachowski: The Matrix trilogy
Christopher & Jonathan Nolan: The Dark Knight trilogy, Man of Steel/Superman
Jon Spaihts: co-writer Prometheus, and black list script Passengers
Quentin Tarantino: new trilogy presumably will continue the story of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Leia, since Lucas reportedly conferred with Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher about making Episodes VII, VIII and IX a year ago.
