A Star Wars movie based on KOTOR is reportedly in the works


I want to support the first woman writing one of the new Star Wars films, but I'm cautious as I am not the biggest fan of her work. Because it's already part of a wildly successful movie franchise, and it's based on one of the best RPGs of all time: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. According to BuzzFeed, Lucasfilm has hired Altered Carbon creator Laeta Kalogridis-who also wrote the scripts for Shutter Island and Alita: Battle Angle-to pen the script. Kalogridis also produced the box office juggernaut Avatar, which is the highest-grossing movie in history (at least for now).

In April, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy told MTV Lucasfilm is "developing something to look at" when it comes to Knights of the Old Republic.

Another rumour that dropped later suggested that Benioff and Weiss will be working on a Lord of the Rings style Star Wars trilogy, which only further strengthed the Knights of the Old Republic speculation.

With Disney wrapping up the Skywalker saga with this Christmas's Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, where does the movie series set in a galaxy far, far away turn next for inspiration?

EA Is Offering The Sims 4 For Free On Origin
You just need to go to the Origin store before Tuesday 28 May. "The game is free on PC and Mac via Origin until May 28th". The Sims 4 came out back in 2014, hot off the heels of Sim City (2013), which was a bit of a disaster at launch.

Though Disney boss Bob Iger recently said that Star Wars was to go on a "hiatus", it appears that he may have a different view to most of us of what that means.

Many believed that KOTOR would be the territory dealt with by Game Of Thrones showrunners Benioff and Weiss now that they've wrapped up their commitments with HBO, but clearly, this is not the case, if the report is to be believed.

Fingers crossed that the new movie will bring the KOTOR characters: Republic pilot Carth Onasi, the Twi'lek teenager Mission Vao and her Wookiee companion Zaalbar to life in the new movie.
