Director Edgar Wright, promoting his upcoming "Baby Driver" musical/crime/car chase film, had a super sneaky tidbit to share about his possible next project.
Asked if he would consider directing a Star Wars movie, Wright, in an interview at CNET Thursday, said, "I guess so, yeah. Yeah. I have something crazy, but I can't tell you."
"Oh no, you can tell us," Connie Gugliemo, CNET News editor-in-chief, prodded.
"No, I really can't," Wright said, laughing. "You'll see at Christmas."
Remember earlier in the year
Kathleen Kennedy mentioned in a MTV interview that fans could expect an announcement for the third Star Wars Anthology film this summer. That announcement will most likely take place at the upcoming D23 Expo that encompasses all things Disney.
Going back to Wright's comment about December and what that could mean. We have The Last Jedi hitting around that time frame and the likelihood of another top secret film underproduction somewhere on this planet, which let's face it, we all would know about in this day and age.
The only conclusion is that Edgar Wright is producing the Star Wars Holiday Special 2. Of course I am kidding, but it will be interesting to see how this develops!
