Los Angeles, Sep 22 (IANS) “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” director Rian Johnson says he is uncertain when his new “Star Wars” trilogy will go in production.
In an interview with Evening Standard, the director said he may begin work on another project in the run-up to the sci-fi movie, reports digitalspy.com.
“The truth is they’re still figuring out their schedule, their game plan,” Johnson said.
“If it’s possible for me to squeeze in another film before or while working on that, I will,” he added.
Even before the release of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” in 2017, Lucasfilm announced that Johnson would also be directing a new trilogy of “Star Wars” films, set in a previously unexplored part of the galaxy with all-new characters.
Johnson has since maintained that he is still attached to the project, having previously debunked rumours that the trilogy had been scrapped.
Apart from “Star Wars” film, Johnson is all set to bring dark comedy mystery film “Knives Out”, which features Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Toni Collette, Don Johnson, Michael Shannon, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, and Christopher Plummer.
The Lionsgate production is slated to release in the US on November 27.
