Despite Lawrence Kasdan’s triumphant return to the “Star Wars” franchise as co-writer of “The Force Awakens” — alongside the film’s director, J.J. Abrams — a new report indicates that the screenwriter’s next film in the franchise, the “Han Solo” anthology movie, will be his last.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a German tabloid called Bild has quoted Kasdan as saying, “I have now made four ‘Star Wars’ movies. That’s more than enough.” The scribe also went on to mention that he was unsure about the “Han Solo” film until the involvement of his son/co-writer, Jon Kasdan.
Spinoff has reached out to Disney and Lucasfilm for comment.
Kasdan previously scripted “The Empire Strikes Back” and “Return of the Jedi” in 1980 and 1983, respectively, before being rehired by Lucasfilm to co-write “The Force Awakens” — due in theatres next month.
The Kasdan-penned “Han Solo” anthology film — to be directed by “21 Jump Street’s” Phil Lord and Chris Miller — is slated for a 2018 release.
