Ewan McGregor wants Star Wars spin-off film

Feb 15 2013, 4:17am CST | by

Ewan McGregor wants his own 'Star Wars' spin-off film.

The sci-fi franchise's producers are reportedly planning several standalone films while 'Episode VII' - which is being directed by 'Star Trek: Into Darkness' filmmaker J.J. Abrams - is in production and Ewan would love to reprise his role as Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi, who he played in the three prequel films.

Speaking to MTV News, he said: ''I think it's a good idea. The only bit that I could get away with doing is after the last one I made, 'Episode III,' before Alec Guinness, there's that period where he's in the desert.''

Referring to the period of time in between the two trilogies, where Anakin Skywalker has transformed into villain Darth Vader and before his son Luke Skywalker meets Old Ben Kenobi, Ewan continued: ''That might be my window, there, to tell that story. I don't know what he did in the desert. We could make up some stuff.

''I'd be up for it. Could be quite exciting. I'd be up for it, for sure, of course.''

It was announced last Wednesday (06.02.13) that Walt Disney Pictures, who bought original director George Lucas' company LucasFilm last year - are planning to create a young Han Solo trilogy, originally played by Harrison Ford, and another spin-off following the adventures of bounty hunter Boba Fett.

Disney chief Bob Iger confirmed: ''We plan to make 'Star Wars' 7, 8 and 9 over roughly a six-year period of time starting in 2015.

''But there are going to be a few other films released in that period of time, too.''

One of the most surprising teases we’ve seen of late is the Mortdecai trailer.

Lionsgate has released a series of Mortdecai character posters featuring that soon-to-be legendary ‘stache on not only Depp, but on his co-stars’ characters as well, played by Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn and Gwyneth Paltrow.

New MORTDECAI Posters Feature Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Olivia Munn, Ewan McGregor, and Moustaches

Oct 2 2014 10:17am CDT | Source: Collider

Lionsgate has released four Mortdecai character posters online, and all of them feature the title character's dapper facial hair.  The film stars Johnny Depp as the roguish Charlie Mortdecai, an art dealer who finds himself in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold (everyone wants Nazi gold these days).  My hope for Mortdecai is that it just manages to be a fun romp rather than a ...
