Star Wars Rumor is News to Moffat, Confirms Involvement in Doctor Who Through Season 9

7 hours ago | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Steven Moffat, Show Runner and Head Writer of the long-running BBC series Doctor Who, has denied rumors that he’s writing the next Star Wars film but confirms that he will be staying on Doctor Who through season nine.

Steven Moffat, the creative brain behind Doctor Who for the past few years, is currently overseeing the filming of the final few episodes of season eight of the perpetually popular BBC series (which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year.) For a while, it looked like Moffat might be deserting the Tardis for the Star Wars Universe. According to Jedi News yesterday, Moffat had been contacted about writing one of the planned future Star Wars films for Disney. After all, Moffat worked with Star Wars 7 producer Kathleen Kennedy on Tintin: the Secret of the Unicorn. Jedi News believed that she had brought him in on the project. However, that doesn’t seem to be the case. »

Has Doctor Who Showrunner Stephen Moffat Been Offered A Star Wars Movie?

18 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

J.J. Abrams may be currently working on bringing Star Wars: Episode VII to the big screen, but lately our sights have been set on the films that will come after its December 2015 release. Over the last few months, Disney and Lucasfilm have been signing multiple directors for the various forthcoming Star Wars sequels and spinoff films. They’ve nabbed some pretty great talent too, from Godzilla director Gareth Edwards to Chronicle director Josh Trank. Then there’s Looper helmer Rian Johnson, who will write and direct Episode VIII, and handle scripting duties on Episode IX as well.

According to JediNews, we may have another name to throw into the mix today, as they’re reporting that Doctor Who and Sherlock writer/showrunner Stephen Moffat may have been offered a Star Wars film, presumably Episode IX. 

JediNews isn’t sure whether he’ll write, direct, or produce the film, but it »

"Who," "Sherlock" Showrunner Doing "Star Wars"?

19 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In one of the more unexpected rumors of late, "Doctor Who" and "Sherlock" showrunner Steven Moffat has been linked to a future "Star Wars" movie according to Jedi News.

Moffat did some early work on the script for Steven Spielberg's "The Adventures of Tintin" movie which was produced by now Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy. Moffat's scheduling commitments to "Doctor Who" prevented him from doing further work on 'Tintin'.

The unconfirmed rumor doesn't indicate which one, though if true it would almost certainly be one of the film's furthest down the track (Episode IX or more likely one of the spin-offs). »

Without the model of being a man, he doesn't have the strongest sense of himself." Despite taking a two-week shooting hiatus in August »
