A Damon Lindelof Star Wars project?

A recent report indicated that writer/producer Damon Lindelof is working on a new "Star Wars" movie.

Lindelof is best known as the creator and showrunner of numerous hit television series, including ABC's "Lost" (2004–2010), the HBO supernatural drama "The Leftovers" (2014–2017), and the HBO limited series "Watchmen" (2019). He's also co-written films such as "Cowboys & Aliens" (2011), "Prometheus" (2012), "Star Trek Into Darkness" (2013), "World War Z" (2013), and "Tomorrowland" (2015).

If Lindelof is indeed working on a new "Star Wars" movie, it would be the fourth (that we know about) currently in development. As our friend Bespin Bulletin points out:

"Lucasfilm currently have three films dated and in some form of development. Patty Jenkins ('Wonder Woman,' 'Wonder Woman 1984') is directing and co-writing 'Star Wars: Rogue Squadron' with Matthew Robinson ('Love and Monsters,' 'Dora and the Lost City of Gold') for a December 2023 release. Taika Waititi ('Thor: Ragnarok,' 'Jojo Rabbit') is directing and co-writing an untitled film with Krysty Wilson-Cairns ('1917,' 'Last Night in Soho') which is slated for December 2025. Lastly we have Michael Waldron ('Loki', 'Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness') writing an untitled film for 2027, which is being produced by Kevin Feige."

Will Mace Windu return?

During an interview with Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Samuel L. Jackson mentioned that he's lobbied for the return of Mace Windu, the purple lightsaber-wielding Jedi he portrayed in the Prequel Trilogy. The last time we saw Windu was in 2005's "Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith." After confronting Darth Sidious, the Jedi Master was betrayed by Anakin Skywalker, losing his hand before Sidious finished the job with Force lightning, presumably killing him off-screen.

"There's a huge history of people with one hand returning in 'Star Wars,'" Jackson said in the interview. While he hasn't had any official conversations about returning to the galaxy far, far away, he did bring up the idea to "The Mandalorian" and "The Book of Boba Fett" director Bryce Dallas Howard.

"The only person I've ever said that to about coming back was Bryce Dallas Howard. I just did a movie with her, and she directs episodes of 'The Mandalorian.' So, I go, 'So, you think you might be able to hook a brother up? I mean, you like me, right?' And she's like 'I love you, you're amazing.' So put me back in, I'm ready. Put me in, coach. I'll learn lightsaber left-handed."
