A few weeks in the past, Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert took to the stage of the Dolby theatre in Hollywood to assert a number of Oscars that they’d gained for his or her movie ‘The whole lot All over the place All at As soon as’, which in fact led to hypothesis about what they’d do for a follow-up.
When information broke yesterday by way of One Take Information that the duo was concerned with new ‘Star Wars’ collection ‘Skeleton Crew’, some took it to imply that the quirky, distinctive duo have been one way or the other “promoting out’ by engaged on a Lucasfilm present.
Because it seems, that’s not the way it occurred in any respect.
Taking to Instagram, Kwan responded to these issues. Right here’s what he needed to say:
”Lol, all the folks @ing us about getting sucked up by the ‘company machine’ can chill. These headlines are at all times deceptive. Don’t fear. We aren’t engaged on a complete collection; we visitor directed one episode. Jon Watts approached us to do an episode some time in the past (earlier than ‘EEAAO’ even got here out). We love Jon, love ‘Star Wars,’ love studying new tech, we love assembly new forged and crew, and we would have liked the times to maintain our healthcare (!!!) so it was a straightforward sure. We shot it final 12 months and had an unbelievable time working with essentially the most gifted forged and crew and I’m excited for you all to see it.”
So, there you will have it –– and let’s be trustworthy, the thought of something directed by the Daniels is one thing to anticipate. Kwan additionally specified that regardless of the duo does subsequent within the movie realm, it’ll be an unique mission they create. We’re unsure why anybody would have anticipated the folks behind ‘Swiss Military Man’ and ‘The whole lot All over the place’ to leap wholeheartedly into the company world.

What’s the story of ‘Skeleton Crew’?
Developed by Watts and Jon Favreau and set in the identical ‘Star Wars’ timeline as ‘The Mandalorian’, ‘Skeleton Crew’ has largely been underneath wraps, with just a few particulars getting out.
The official logline for the collection is sparse at this level: “‘Skeleton Crew’ tells the story of 4 youngsters who discover themselves misplaced in within the vastness of the galaxy looking for their manner residence” and we do know that Watts was working with ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ co-writer Christopher Ford on the scripts.

Damon Lindelof leaves the ‘Star Wars’ film he was writing
In much less constructive ‘Star Wars’ information, Above The Line brings phrase that Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson are now not aboard the film set within the galaxy far, far-off that that they had been writing.
Lindelof provided a touch that he may need jumped (area)ship on the SXSW competition final week, the place he stated this to Slashfilm:
”I’ll simply say, that for causes that I can’t get into on this Sunday morning, on today, the diploma of issue is extraordinarily, extraordinarily, extraordinarily excessive. If it could possibly’t be nice, it shouldn’t exist. That’s all I’ll say, as a result of I’ve the identical affiliation with it as you do, which is, it’s the primary film I noticed sitting in my dad’s lap, 4 years outdated, Might of ‘77. I believe it’s potential that generally if you maintain one thing in such excessive reverence and esteem, you begin to get within the kitchen and also you simply go, ‘Possibly I shouldn’t be cooking. Possibly I ought to simply be consuming.’ We’ll simply go away it at that time.”
Lindelof’s unique attachment was thrilling for style followers, because the ‘Misplaced’ veteran had labored on ‘The Leftovers’ and ‘Watchmen’. And although his huge display screen work hasn’t been as warmly obtained (‘Star Trek: Into Darkness’, ‘Prometheus’ and ‘Cowboys & Aliens’ included), there was anticipation for the way his and Britt-Gibson’s sensibilities would possibly translate to ‘Star Wars’.
Don’t go pondering that this marks one other cancelled ‘Star Wars’ mission as Disney and Lucasfilm battle to get their cinematic universe so as. Above The Line’s story additionally mentions that Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (a documentary filmmaker who has labored in animation and directed episodes of ‘Ms. Marvel’ for Disney+) remains to be aboard to make the film.
A brand new author is seemingly concerned in engaged on the script, although their identification is unknown at the moment. And if all of it works out, the cameras must be rolling in early 2024 forward of a December 2025 launch.
What we do know is that Star Wars Celebration, the Disney-curated conference round all issues ‘Star Wars’, is occurring subsequent month in London, and that’s historically the place Lucasfilm has introduced huge new films and TV collection. In order that’s the place audiences ought to study the destiny of this new film.
Even that’s no assure, although, as we’ve had a wide range of huge bulletins –– movies from Patty Jenkins or Kevin Feige, for instance –– which have merely by no means come to cross, misplaced in a mire of conflicting schedules and lengthy improvement.
Different films we’re nonetheless ready for updates embrace Rian Johnson’s deliberate return to the ‘Star Wars’ universe (on maintain as he focuses on ‘Knives Out’ sequels), a film from Taika Waititi that also seems to be taking place and one produced by prolific filmmaker Shawn Levy which we’d guess remains to be being held up by his busy schedule, which incorporates involvement within the remaining season of ‘Stranger Issues’ and gearing as much as direct ‘Deadpool 3’.
