British national Jack Thorne has been hired to work on the script for Star Wars: Episode IX. The movie is set to be directed by Colin Trevorrow.
Trevorrow and screenwriter Derek Connolly reportedly have written drafts of the final installment script, continuing the outline by "Star Wars: Last Jedi" writer-director Rian Johnson. While many says the film needs a more fresh script, Variety's sources revealed the writer changes is no more to deliver a kind of touches that films usually receive and not to be considered as a ground-up rewrite. However, it remains unclear how much changes the rewrite will give.
Thorne's best-known work includes some BritishTV dramas and thrillers among others, "The Fades", "The Last Panthers" and "National Treasure". He's now working on Warner Bros. graphic novel adaptation "Sandman" and Julia Roberts's upcoming movie "Wonder", yet his most prominent project in terms of fantasy genre, undoubtedly, is the play "Harry Potter and the Cursed Child".
Star Wars: Episode IX is due out May 24, 2019.
