Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios and one of the driving forces behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will produce a new Star Wars movie for Disney. That’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, which states that the move is part of new plans for “a wave of projects set in the [Star Wars] universe.”
The site states that Feige discussed the Star Wars project in late summer, having met with Lucasfilm’s Kathleen Kennedy and studio co-chairmen Alan Horn and Alan Bergman. Asked for a statement, Horn said, “We are excited about the projects Kathy and the Lucasfilm team are working on, not only in terms of Star Wars but also Indiana Jones and reaching into other parts of the company including Children of Blood and Bone with Emma Watts and Fox.
“With the close of the Skywalker Saga, Kathy is pursuing a new era in Star Wars storytelling, and knowing what a die-hard fan Kevin is, it made sense for these two extraordinary producers to work on a Star Wars film together.”
