Jojo Rabbit director Taika Waititi is reported to be in early talks to bring a new Star Wars film to the big screen.
Entertainment trade publication Variety says it has confirmed that the Thor: Ragnarok helmer is in discussions about developing a new Star Wars adventure, but there are no details on how far talks have progressed or whether Waititi would be the director.
On Thursday, Waititi posted a photo of the cover of Fleetwood Mac's album Rumours to his Twitter account.
He recently directed the season finale of Star Wars spin-off series The Mandalorian and played the droid IG-11 on the show.
During an interview on Monday, Variety asked Waititi if he could see himself directing a Star Wars film in the future.
"Oh, I don't know anything about that," Waititi replied. "But Mandalorian was my chance to work with some stormtroopers."
"Obviously I would, but I'm going to just settle for IG-11 being the hero of the entire season," he added.
The next Star Wars film is due to open on December 16, 2022.
