During an interview, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy revealed she would love for Taika Waititi to direct a Star Wars movie. During the interview with Newshub, Kennedy said not only would she love for him to direct, she wanted the outlet to pass the news on to Waititi to make sure he knows that it?s an informal job offer. Kennedy stated: ?I would love for him to direct a Star Wars movie. I think he has exactly the right sensibility. It was very exciting to see him step into the Marvel universe and do such an amazing job with Thor.? However, it seems Waititi finds star wars films too serious for his taste, but it would also be idiotic for him to turn down a project like star wars.
