[Rumor] Laeta Kalogridis to Write ‘Star Wars: Knights of the old Republic’ Film

Take this with a grain of salt from Crait, but it sounds like maybe, just maybe, that possible Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic project that Kathleen Kennedy said was being looked at may have found it’s writer.

[Rumor] Laeta Kalogridis to Write 'Star Wars: Knights of the old Republic' Film

According to Buzzfeed who claims exclusive knowledge of this, Laeta Kalogridis (James Cameron‘s Avatar, Altered Carbon) will be penning the script for a film based on the classic video game title. This is a pretty big deal, as she will be the first credited female writer on a Star Wars film since Leigh Bracket on Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (other than, you know, Carrie Fisher‘s legendary rewrites).

Buzzfeed says three sources have confirmed to them that Kalogridis is working on completing the script for a possible Knights of the Old Republic trilogy.

There’s no telling which of the already-announced projects this could me- the word trilogy makes us wonder if this is where Rian Johnson‘s set is headed, or if maybe this is that third Disney+ live-action project Bob Iger was alluding to.

We’ll of course let you know what we hear from Disney and LucasFilm about this and all things Star Wars.
