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.''

Johnny Depp's Mortdecai: Strange, Dark Jay Gatsby-Like Moron!

Aug 14 2014 12:10pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

We can usually expect from Johnny Depp a strange and dark character but in his newest movie, Mortdecai, he plays a comedic and eccentric art dealer Charles Mortdecai. I believe this will be a character we have never seen Depp play, yeah he has played a lot of eccentric, comedic characters in the past years but Mortdecai has a different vibe than some of his other characters. Mortdecai has a little resemblance to Jay Gatsby but he is a moron as you can hear Ewan McGregor s ...

'Mortdecai' Trailer: Johnny Depp Rocks a Fantastic Mustache

Aug 13 2014 12:36pm CDT | Source: movies.com

In David Koepp’s spy comedy Mortdecai, Johnny Depp plays a dapper James Bond type (an art dealer by trade) whose good looks and roguish charm are his only weapons during the hunt to recover a stolen painting. He also has a “man servant” named Jock Strapp (Paul Bettany). Fine, Depp. You win this round. How can we refuse? The film is adapted from the Mortdecai Trilogy written by Kyril Bonfiglioli — who was actually an art dealer in a former life. The books have been compared to ...

Johnny Depp is Kinda a Charming Moron in First Mortdecai Trailer

Aug 13 2014 12:31pm CDT | Source: beyond hollywood

David Koepp’s “Mortdecai,” starring Johnny Depp as some kind of dimwitted but rich British dude named Mortdecai, might actually be pretty good. Or at least, pretty kooky. But I doubt if it’ll do very much business at the box office unless Depp breaks out the mascara and start swaying around saying, “Arrrgh, me pirate booty!” Or some such. But personally, I think it looks interesting. Even funny. If nothing else, Paul Bettany’s reaction to being ...

Mortdecai Trailer: Johnny Depp Is a Hilarious Big Spender

Aug 12 2014 12:42pm CDT | Source: movie fanatic

Johnny Depp stars in Mortdecai, the wild-looking comedy that features an all-star cast and honestly, a role that appears to be right up Depp’s alley. It’s refreshing to see him return to comedy and he seems to be relishing in the title character role as a global hot-spot hopper who as the song that plays in the first Mortdecai trailer says, is a “Big Spender.” Mortdecai Trailer, Mortdecai is having a fun time traveling the world, even while avoiding the British MI5, Russians wh ...

‘Mortdecai’ Trailer: Johnny Depp Is a Bit of a Moron, Actually

Aug 12 2014 12:15pm CDT | Source: Slash Film

To put it mildly, Johnny Depp is not exactly at a high point in his career. He hasn’t had a solid hit since the last Pirates of the Caribbean movie, and his last three starring roles were outright flops. But on the bright side, he’ll have plenty of opportunities to redeem himself in the near future. One of those chances arrives next February in the form of a goofy comedy. Depp plays the title character in Mortdecai, a roguish art dea ...
