From the TARDIS to a galaxy far, far away?
According to a rumor from Jedi News, Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat is being linked to a future Star Wars movie.
It's unknown if he's being discussed for a saga episode (Episode VIII or IX) or one of the standalone projects. The third Star Wars standalone project does not have a writing team or director announced.
In 2008, former fellow Doctor Who writer Russell T Davies was reportedly offered a position on the disbanded Star Wars Underworld project. Davies refused the role and declined to meet with Lucas.
Moffat also previously served as a writer on the 2011 The Adventures of Tintin movie, which was produced by Lucasfilm president and Star Wars producer Kathleen Kennedy.
