But the creator says he doesn't know anything about it....
Aint It Cool News is reporting that there are rumors that Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic could be turned into a film.
The website cited sources at Bioware and claimed that Drew Karpyshyn, who created much of KOTOR, was secretly working on a screenplay as part of Lucasfilm's planned spin-off movies.
Karpyshyn's video game writing credits include Mass Effect, Mass Effect 2, Jade Empire, Baldur's Gate, Neverwinter Nights, and both Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and Star Wars: The Old Republic.
Karpyshyn has since contacted AICN and said that he "has heard nothing about a Knights of the Old Republic movie. Of course even if he was working on it, he couldn't say so - but I'm going to say this looks like a rumor that we can put to rest for now. His old workmates at BioWare were hoping it was true, but there was more hope than reality to the rumor. Consider this one shut down for now."
