J.D. Dillard to Develop New Star Wars Film

Disney is going full steam ahead with taking Star Wars to the next chapter. Up and coming sci-fi director J.D. Dillard has been chosen to cultivate a new Star Wars film per The Hollywood Reporter!

Dillard will have help from Luke Cage scribe Matt Owens on the project. Disney has not revealed whether the new movie will get a major theatrical release or be a Disney Plus feature. Naturally, all plot details are being kept under lock and key.

At this time, Dillard is not set to direct the film. He is best known for 2016’s sci-fi thriller Sleight, which performed well at Sundance. He is familiar with Star Wars having worked in production on Star Wars: The Force Awakens! Dillard also held the title of stormtrooper in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

Are you ready for the next era of Star Wars?
