Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige’s highly anticipated Star Wars project just took a big step forward, with Loki executive producer and writer Michael Waldron signing on to write the screenplay, Variety reports.
Waldron’s work on the Star Wars movie is part of a larger deal he’s signed with Disney, suggesting a long-term relationship with the company and its live-action divisions. Along with his duties on the Disney+ series Loki, Waldron recently wrote the upcoming Marvel Studios feature Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Waldron first cut his teeth in the business working on various projects for Dan Harmon, including Rick and Morty and Community. He recently executive produced and co-wrote the Starz drama Heels, about a family of pro wrestlers starring Stephen Amell and Alexander Ludwig.
