DEADPOOL 3 Director Shawn Levy In Talks To Helm An Upcoming STAR WARS Movie For Lucasfilm

Filmmaker Shawn Levy looks set to go from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to a Galaxy Far, Far Away as the director is in talks to helm a Star Wafrs movie once he's finished work on 2024's Deadpool 3...

Deadline (via SFFGazette.com) has revealed that Free Guy director Shawn Levy is in talks to develop and direct a new Star Wars movie for Lucasfilm. Unfortunately, the trade has no details on the plot or who will pen the screenplay, but they have learned that the filmmaker will make this project a priority once he's finished helming Deadpool 3 for Marvel Studios. 

Levy also needs to put the finishing touches to the upcoming final season of Stranger Things, and is clearly a filmmaker on the rise at Disney after Free Guy and the upcoming Deadpool threequel. 

Lucasfilm has a lot of big screen projects set in this Galaxy Far, Far Away in the works, including movies from Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi and writer Krysty Wilson-Cairns and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Loki scribe Michael Waldron.

It's also recently been reported that Watchmen showrunner Damon Lindelof has penned a movie that Ms. Marvel's Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy will direct. Oh, and there's also Patty Jenkins' Rogue Squadron (though that may have fallen apart due to creative differences). 

We haven't had a Star Wars movie since 2019's The Rise of Skywalker, and while the future is shaping up to be relatively exciting, it's hard to say for sure what Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy is up to. 

On the one hand, she may be teeing up a whole slate of Star Wars movies...on the other, it's possible the executive is just throwing everything she can at the wall to see what sticks (and that a lot of these won't even become a reality). 

The franchise continues to find success on TV, though, with the first season of Andor set to wrap up in a few weeks. Next year will see the premieres of The Mandalorian, Ahsoka, and Skeleton Crew, while we also have The Acolyte on the horizon. Disney+ has proven itself a good home for these characters, but it's been a bumpy ride for Star Wars in theaters since 2015.

As always, stay tuned to SFFGazette.com updates as we have them.
