With the recent Star Wars movies being so divisive, especially with Rise of Skywalker… the future of the Star Wars movies is as cloudy as it’s ever been.
I think the only thing we can be sure of right now is that there will definitely be more Start Wars movies..we just have no idea when or what Disney and Lucasfilm will focus on in terms of content.
Therefore you have so many people in the media and fan community giving their speculation on what they should do with the Star Wars franchise.
Which brings us to Scott Derrickson.
If they want to do something really different, Scott Derrickson has an idea; make an R-rated Star Wars horror movie. Scott Derrickson, best known as the director of Doctor Strange, was recently asked what kind of Star Wars movie he would make, given the chance. Derrickson, before making his trip to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, directed horror movies such as Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Taking to Twitter, in a since-deleted tweet, Derrickson explained that he would like to exercise his horror chops in a galaxy far, far away. Here’s what he had to say about it:
“Just asked what kind of Star Wars movie I would make. I answered that I would make Hoth, an R-rated frozen planet horror film in the vein of The Thing or Lovecraft’s In the Mountains of Madness, with zero connection to any previous characters or storylines.”
Scott Derrickson has since deleted his tweet about wanting to make this Hoth-based Star Wars film, and made the comment in response to a fan asking which kind of Star Wars movie he'd make – but he implores that it will never happen. pic.twitter.com/wLFdHtYDg1— IGN (@IGN) March 9, 2020
Scott has since deleted that tweet..albeit from the divisive response from the toxic Star Wars fans.
What do you think about Mr. Derrickson’s comments? Do you agree that going Horror for Star Wars would even work? Leave your thoughts below!
