We want you to think long and hard about a pretty amazing what-if. Imagine a world in which Guillermo del Toro directed a “Star Wars” movie. Not only that, but, one written by David S. Goyer (“Dark City,” “Man of Steel,” “Blade“). No really, it could’ve happened!
“I wrote an unproduced Star Wars movie that Guillermo del Toro was going to direct,” Goyer told Josh Horowitz. Who, understandably, did a HOLD UP pause to get more info. “I have six follow-ups. When?! Tell me something!”
“Yeah, it was about 4 years ago,” Goyer said. “And I also wrote- I have an unproduced scriptment origins of the Jedi movie, also for Star Wars that I wrote for them. That took place 25,000 years before the first Star Wars film.”
That in itself would’ve been amazing. But Horowitz asks what happened to the possible GdT project. Goyer responded, saying there was “a lot going on with Lucasfilm at the time.”
Goyer did write the Vader Immortal VR experience, so he has been able to ‘dabble’ in the galaxy far, far away.
