Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy to direct secret ‘Star War’ film: Reports
The Oscar and Emmy-winning director Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy is all set to direct a new Star Wars film.
American screenwriter Damon Lindelof, who has written for Star Trek, The Watchmen, and Tomorrowland, is reportedly working on a new Star Wars movie for Lucasfilm, a division of Walt Disney Studios. According to sources, Obaid-Chinoy has been selected as the film’s director, but production is not yet scheduled because the script is under work.
It was crucial to direct the script with the person’s own vision for how they saw the plot unfolding in mind, so the filmmaking team apparently selected a director before they found a co-writer.
Until the time comes for the creators to officially welcome the audience into a new realm, the film’s primary subject will remain a well-guarded secret. The fact that a director was aggressively sought suggests that this movie has the most momentum among those in development at the studio, even though the release date appears to be in the far future.
Recently, Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy directed a show for Disney, Ms Marvel, in which Pakistani celebrities also marked their Hollywood debut.
