At this rate, it seems like every A24 director is ready to conquer a galaxy far, far away.
David Lowery, famous for his work on Pete’s Dragon, The Old Man & The Gun and The Green Knight, will direct at least one episode of Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, multiple sources tell One Take News.
Lucasfilm declined to comment.
The news comes just after OTN exclusively reported that Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, known as the Daniels, directed one episode of Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, news Kwan then confirmed on his Instagram. It was recently announced that Lowery will be reuniting with A24 to write and direct the music-drama Mother Mary, starring Michaela Coel and Anne Hathaway. Lowrey also has another project in the works with Disney, Peter Pan & Wendy, due out in just under a month.
Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is the latest show in Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni’s so-called Mando-Verse. The show was conceived by Jon Favreau and Jon Watts while the two were on the set of Spider-Man: No Way Home in 2020. The show is also known under its working title, Grammar Rodeo, which is based on the event Bart Simpson told his parents he was going to in The Simpsons episode, Bart on the Road. Our friends at DiscussingFilm then reported last year that Watts was officially in talks for the series. At Star Wars Celebration in 2022, the series was officially announced and Jude Law was confirmed to star.
