    J.J. Abrams Returning to Write and Direct STAR WARS: EPISODE IX


    [​IMG]

    J.J. Abrams is returning to a galaxy far, far away. The Force Awakens director will step in to direct Star Wars: Episode IX after the exit of former director, Colin Trevorrow.

    “With The Force Awakens, J.J. delivered everything we could have possibly hoped for, and I am so excited that he is coming back to close out this trilogy,” said Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy in a statement.

    Trevorrow left the project earlier this month. Abrams will co-write the film with Chris Terrio.

    According to sources, Trevorrow exited the project after issues with the script persisted throughout development, with the director taking multiple stabs at different drafts. Eventually, he and Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy's working relationship had become unmanageable.

    Jack Thorne, the British scribe who wrote the upcoming Julia Roberts-Jacob Tremblay movie Wonder, was tapped to work on the script for the movie, which is the supposed end to the Skywalker Saga.

    In their Sept. 5 statement, Lucasfilm and Disney said, "Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on Star Wars: Episode IX. Colin has been a wonderful collaborator throughout the development process, but we have all come to the conclusion that our visions for the project differ. We wish Colin the best and will be sharing more information about the film soon."

    This move marks the third time a director has been replaced on a Star Wars project. Phil Lord and Chris Miller were taken off the Han Solo standalone with only a few weeks left in production, and later replace with Ron Howard. Gareth Edwards handled all of the principal photography on 2016's Rogue One, but the movie's extensive reshoots were helmed by seasoned director Tony Gilroy.

    Disney made a slew of changes to its upcoming calendar on Tuesday, including pushing back the release of Star Wars: Episode IX by seven months.Episode IX will now open in theaters Dec. 20, 2019, instead of May 24, 2019.

    Rumored Details on Why Colin Trevorrow Was Fired from STAR WARS: EPISODE IX


    [​IMG]

    According to a ranking Hollywood movie insider with direct knowledge of the productions on both The Book of Henry and Jurassic World (and who requested anonymity out of concern for sensitive ongoing business relationships), Colin Trevorrow’s firing from Star Wars: Episode IX may have come more directly as a consequence of being “difficult.”

    “During the making of Jurassic World, he focused a great deal of his creative energies on asserting his opinion,” the executive explains. “But because he had been personally hired by Spielberg, nobody could say, ‘You’re fired.’ Once that film went through the roof and he chose to do Henry, [Trevorrow] was unbearable. He had an egotistical point of view— and he was always asserting that.”

    Then, during preproduction on Episode IX, Trevorrow’s relationship with Lucasfilm top brass became reportedly "unmanageable" over the course of “repeated stabs at multiple drafts” of the script.

    “When the reviews for Book of Henry came out, there was immediately conjecture that Kathy was going to dump him because they weren’t thrilled with working with him anyway,” the executive continues. “He’s a difficult guy. He’s really, really, really confident. Let’s call it that.”

    Kathy, of course, is eight-time Academy Award–nominated Lucasfilm president/Star Wars brand manager Kathleen Kennedy, who found herself beneath the red-hot scrutiny of Movie Twitter in June after firing co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller from the Han Solo spinoff prequel. And in terms of that surfeit of self-belief, Trevorrow admitted to as much in an interview with Esquire in 2015. “Directors require a level of confidence that can border on the delusional,” Trevorrow said. “You have to push it right up to the edge of arrogance, but never cross the line.”

    The decision to bounce him from the project ultimately fell to Kennedy, who, five years into her Lucasfilm tenure, is showing less and less compunction about firing or replacing directors she feels are temperamentally or creatively unsuited to the job, having also overseen the resignation of Fantastic Four director Josh Trank from another stand-alone Star Wars film in 2015.

    “There’s one gatekeeper when it comes to Star Wars and it’s Kathleen Kennedy,” says a veteran movie producer, who has worked with the studio chief. “If you rub Kathleen Kennedy the wrong way — in any way — you’re out. You’re done. A lot of these young, new directors want to come in and say, ‘I want to do this. I want to do that.’ A lot of these guys — Lord and Miller, Colin Trevorrow — got very rich, very fast and believed a lot of their own hype. And they don’t want to play by the rules. They want to do shit differently. And Kathleen Kennedy isn’t going to fuck around with that.”

    Colin Trevorrow Out as STAR WARS: EPISODE IX Director Due to Script Issues


    [​IMG]

    Colin Trevorrow is no longer directing Star Wars: Episode IX.

    Rumors of Trevorrow’s departure have dogged the project since early June, weeks before the opening of The Book of Henry, his thriller that was panned by critics and failed at the box office.

    Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that script issues have continued to be the continuing sore spot with Episode IX’s development with Trevorrow having had repeated stabs at multiple drafts. In August, Jack Thorne, the British scribe who wrote the upcoming Julia Roberts-Jacob Tremblay movie Wonder, was tapped to work.

    Lucasfilm and Disney announced the exit Tuesday. "Lucasfilm and Colin Trevorrow have mutually chosen to part ways on Star Wars: Episode IX. Colin has been a wonderful collaborator throughout the development process but we have all come to the conclusion that our visions for the project differ. We wish Colin the best and will be sharing more information about the film soon," read a Lucasfilm statement.

    In August, Jack Thorne, the British scribe who wrote the upcoming Julia Roberts-Jacob Tremblay movie Wonder, was tapped to work on the script.

    This is the latest director shakeup on a Lucasfilm title. In June, Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired from the Star Wars Han Solo standalone with only a couple of weeks left of scheduled production. The two were later replaced by Ron Howard, who is finishing out production of the project in London now.

    That's what I was thinking. I wonder if he's holding it together with the force.

    That's probably the most likely scenario at this point. I can't think of any force users in the sw universe that would be old as fuck, mutilated, and powerful enough to creat the first order / make Luke go pout in the corner.

    No the Hologram is much larger that's like giant level.

    Dude likes to talk in style and present power and superiority over his people.

    There are many theories out there but he has been confirmed by now he is thin, deformed with scars of the past, lived for a very long time, and very tall 8-9-10 feet way above any normal human.

    He will appear in this movie we will see him his new Praetorian guard was spotted several times in products and pictures and you know if they are around he is too.

    Better not be some bullshit like a bleached / plucked Darth Maul, who should still be falling in the abyss (actually, those should be cutscenes in the next film).

    I disagree.

    The bulk of the damage is on one side of his head, and I'd say it's more consistent with an explosion concentrated blaster fire.

    Remember what blaster fire did to Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru.
