Is Lucasfilm Developing a Knights of the Old Republic Project?


Hey folks, Harry here... Consider this a rumor at this stage.

Before I get directly into the rumor, which showed up in a rather elaborate email today, let me talk a bit about what is going on at LUCASFILM right now. When AICN ran this rumor by some trusted sources, the only thing we got was a statement that there is literally a ton of activity going on regarding a whole bunch of ideas for Lucasfilm. Essentially, we are living in a time - where there are multiple generations of filmmakers, screenwriters and artists at all levels of film and media production - that have a very real opportunity to try out their ideas.

I couldn't agree with you more. The Knights games were incredible additions to the Star Wars lore. I think Malak or Revan would translate very nicely to the big screen as a series big bad.

They would be good but not if it is one movie.

Crazay1337d ago

That would have to be a whole new trilogy in my opinion

Please be true, please be true!

Revan is my favorite Star Wars character, but Bane is a close second. I would be STOKED either way.

aiBreeze1337d ago

Yeah, either would be a huge treat to Star Wars fans to be fair.

I simply don't see Drew Karpyshyn transitioning over to screenwriting. I thought he mentioned writing his own original fantasy series.

God. Imagine who could play Bastilla. *Drools*
I imagine if she were 10-15 years younger, Angelina Jolie would have been perfect.
