Director J.D. Dillard (Sleight) and screenwriter Matt Owens (“The Defenders,” “Luke Cage,” “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.”) are developing a “Star Wars” project for Lucasfilm, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The Hollywood trade said that it’s being developed in such a way that it could be adapted for a film or as a series for Disney Plus.
