Lost Co-Creator Damon Lindelof Reportedly Working on a New Star Wars Movie

Damon Lindelof – co-creator of Lost and The Leftovers, and creator the Watchmen TV series – is reportedly working on a new Star Wars movie.

According to The Ankler‘s Jeff Sneider, the writer/producer was approached to create a new entry in the Star Wars universe after publicly saying he’d like to work in that universe. Sneider has previously revealed unannounced details about a number of movies, including revealing the villains and even some of the less-expected protagonists of Spider-Man: No Way Home.

“At some point, but certainly not in the immediate future,” Lindelof said in 2020, ” I feel like I would love to do something in the Star Wars universe. Maybe a decade from now when I would no longer be blamed for ruining it. That would be a hoot.”

As Lindelof jokes about above, he remains a polarising figure for many fans. While his Watchmen and Leftovers series have been beloved, the finale of Lost and the controversial Star Trek Into Darkness have seen some fans question his work.

However, even if Lindelof is developing a Star Wars movie, recent history makes it clear that this isn’t confirmation that he’ll release one. Previously, a trilogy from Game of Thrones’ David Benioff and D.B. Weiss was cancelled, a Rian Johnson trilogy seemingly remains in limbo, and multiple directors have been dropped from the more recent movies.

Even with those dropouts, there is a lot of Star Wars on the way, with Obi-Wan Kenobi set to premiere on Disney+ on May 25.
