Star Wars has continued to grow, but its cinematic ventures took quite the set p back throughout the last few years. Rogue Squadron was originally set to release this year. Yet, project ha to show any development or even start filming. So, we don’t know what the future might have in store for their cinematic ventures. Suprrisingly, it seems that an only recently announced project in the works by Damon Lindelof may have entered a casting phase.
In the podcast The Hot Mic, it was hinted that the film may already be casting its lead. It’s currently looking for a person of color. No real details are known besides that the main lead is likely to be male and it may be the film to hit the December 19th, 2025 release date that is currently set without any specified project connected at the moment, but that’s only a theory. For now, we still have to take this rumor with a pinch of salt.
We first heard the news that the Watchmen showrunner was working on the project back in March of 2022, but nothing besides that. As trust in Lucasfilm hasn’t been high on them ever meeting their goals with any cinematic franchises, it seems like if this rumor turns out true, the project moved forward at quite a fast pace. If this turns out to be true, we might get some more details in the coming months as they prepare to film later this year.
