If you were hoping to see Patty Jenkins‘ debut in the iconic galaxy far, far away, then today’s news is sure to leave a sour taste in your mouth.
Star Wars: Rogue Squadron – the brand new, upcoming film in the popular space opera series helmed by Wonder Woman filmmaker Patty Jenkins – has been officially delayed.
Jenkins and writer Matthew Robinson have been developing Squadron for Lucasfilm for over a year, with the goal of starting production in 2022. It was to have gone into preproduction by the end of this year.
Although nothing has been one-hundred-percent confirmed, it is believed that the reason to the delay is scheduling conflicts relating to other projects Jenkins is currently working on. Once these projects are completed, it is believed that she will then direct Rogue Squadron.
It is unclear if Lucasfilm will have another Star Wars movie ready to go before Squadron, but development continues on several; among them, one from Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige and one from Taika Waititi.
