Star Wars Live Action TV Show News!!!

According to TMZ, Lucasfilm has begun interviewing writers for its upcoming live action TV series that fills in the gaps between Episode III and IV. The encouraging part of this rumor is that some of the individuals they’re meeting with are writers from LOST and HEROES. Hmmm… who could that be?

Personally, its pretty exciting to think of names like BRIAN K. VAUGHAN and JEPH LOEB possibly getting involved with the STAR WARS mythos. And with LOST wrapping up in a couple years, dare I dream that show masterminds DAMON LINDELOF and CARLTON CUSE might jump over to this big budget, highly anticipated project? The dock scene where Kate, Jack, and Sawyer look at each other before the hoods are thrown over them is a pretty great homage to the Han, Lando, and Luke scene at the start of RETURN OF THE JEDI, and Damon’s a pretty accomplished fanboy.

What do you say guys? Get the Losties off the island and head over to that galaxy far, far away…

    I agree. Fanboys working on Star Wars is a wonderful idea. I hope some of the Lost writers will be drafted to work on Star Wars.

    If you think about it, this will probably be the first time true fanboys (the ones that grew up with STAR WARS) are actually given real control over the franchise. I know a lot of people were surprised Lucas directed all 3 prequels, when plenty of people thought he should hand it over to someone younfer (Frank Darabont was a pretty hot name at the time). But nobody expects him to be running the day to day operations of the show.

    So, I’m expecting some really great stuff here, and yeah, the LOST really should do this– they know how to do the team banter that Kasdan did so well in Empire. And come on– I mean, Sawyer really is Han Solo on the Island, you can tell that’s a big part of who the character is based on.
