Peaky Blinders Creator Steven Knight to Write New Star Wars Movie After Damon Lindelof Exit

Variety.com is reporting that

Variety has reported that “Peaky Blinders” creator Steven Knight will write the script for the unnamed “Star Wars” film that Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (“Ms. Marvel”) is attached to helm, since original screenwriters Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson have left the project.

The film is largely expected to be one of Lucasfilm’s first “Star Wars” films following “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” in 2019. Further details about the film, including a potential title, are scheduled to be revealed during the Star Wars Celebration in London in April.

From variety.com:

Knight is a veteran screenwriter who launched his career specializing in gritty crime dramas like 2002’s “Dirty Pretty Things” and 2007’s “Eastern Promises,” eventually branching out to lighthearted dramedies (2014’s “The Hundred-Foot Journey”), war thrillers (2016’s “Allied”), and biopics (2021’s “Spencer”). He also created and executive produced the BBC period crime drama “Peaky Blinders,” which streams on Netflix in the US.
