Peaky Blinders creator to write script for new Star Wars movie

According to exclusive information from the website Variety, the creator of the acclaimed Peaky Blinders series, Steven Knight, will write the script for a Star Wars film. The director will be Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, responsible for Ms. Marvel.

Previously, the project would have screenwriters Justin Britt-Gibson and Damon Lindelof, known for the Watchmen series.

The new film is planned by Lucasfilm as the first film in the franchise since Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker, which had a controversial reception among specialized critics and the public.

More information about the production is expected to be announced at the Star Wars Celebration in London, which runs from April 7-10. A Lucasfilm spokesperson was reached by Variety but declined to comment on the matter.
