Taika Waititi Thinks Directing a Star Wars Project is Career Suicide

Anyone who was worried about Waititi “ruining your mythos” any more than it has already been ruined, might be able to breathe a sigh of relief.


Fanning the flames of progress.


In an interview with Variety:


Just by working on “The Mandalorian,” you’ve landed squarely in the future of “Star Wars” conversation. Where does that stand now?

I wish there was a better story, I’ll put it that way. Are there discussions about the “Star Wars” film? Like, yeah, I discussed with my friends in 1996 how cool “Star Wars” was. That’s what they’re going off.

Really, there’s nothing happening?

I think people see me hanging out with people, especially with “Star Wars,” and think I’m having some big discussions about it. I would f—ing love to.

You would want to do a “Star Wars” movie.

If it was right. I would want to do any kind of movie if it made sense, and if it felt not like career suicide.


I wonder if J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson feel that they’ve committed career suicide?
