Taika Waititi offered Star Wars movie | Newshub

Kathleen Kennedy likes Taika Waititi‘s work on Thor: Ragnarok so much, she is interested in having him direct a future Star Wars film. In the short clip below, while being interviewed by Newshub., Waititi was brought up and Kennedy’s reaction is perfectly positive.

Although Waititi has already joked he would get fired, if he was hired for a Star Wars film in a tweet recently. The joke came shortly after Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were let go from the Han Solo movie, due to their improvisational style, a technique Waititi is also a fan of using on his films.

“I think he has exactly the right sensibility. It was very exciting to see him step into the Marvel universe and do such an amazing job with Thor.”
[Kennedy] then eagerly encouraged Newshub to “let him know”, and laughed “yeah” when asked if it was a genuine job offer..
