Star Wars Rumours: Are Alfonso Cuaron And Simon Pegg Somehow Involved?

star_wars_logo_640_large_verge_medium_landscapeIt looks to me like Jim Dorey of the 3D blog Marketsaw has made some good friends in the filmmaking community, particularly amongst stereographers.

Previously, Dorey has managed to successfully report a good amount of Avatar and Hobbit info before it was official, and he was the first to start claiming that a new Star Wars trilogy was coming, way back in 2009. It was a story he stuck with right up to the official declaration.

So either Dorey is a very lucky guesser or he knows the right people. I like to think it’s the latter. We all have our own specific little communities of informants, I think, and sometimes they’re the right people, in the right place, for the big stories.

So now that Dorey is reporting more Star Wars rumours, I think they’re at least worth discussing.

In short, a new Marketsaw post sees Alfonso Cuaron and Simon Pegg specifically named as being involved, in some unspecified manner, in upcoming Star Wars developments. There’s literally not even a crumb-sized clue as to how, though.

Cuaron would be a very strong candidate to direct a Star Wars film, I think. He was the first to breathe any real life into Harry Potter and his aptitude for blending genre tropes with depth and intelligence has been well proven.

As for Pegg… well, I’d like to see him involved, sure. Because the man loves Star Wars. He’s a fine actor, too – though arguably a better screenwriter. I expect he’d be able to dream up a great little spin-off yarn, no worries.

Is either party truthfully involved? Only time will tell. For now, food for… well, not exactly thought. Gossip. Speculation. Geeking out.

Pegg’s next film, as co-screenwriter, is The World’s End, along in the UK this August; Cuaron’s Gravity will finally be with us in October.
