Luke Cage Showrunner Volunteers to Direct New Star Wars Movie

At this point, the future of the Star Wars franchise is still unclear. After all, we're not sure what will happen with the films that David Benioff and DB Weiss were supposed to work on. In addition to that, there are concerns that Rian Johnson's own trilogy will not push through. Interestingly, the former showrunner of the Marvel series Luke Cage has just volunteered to work on the next Star Wars movie.

A Star Wars fan recently reacted to a tweet begging The Mandalorian director Dave Filoni to be given a live-action film. The fan claimed that Lucasfilm and Disney should "have someone who isn't a white male director do a Star Wars film for once." Not surprisingly, Cheo Hodari Coker had the perfect response. Check it out below.

We're not surprised that Coker is volunteering to helm a Star Wars movie. After all, this is the same guy who took to Twitter to pitch an awesome way to bring back Samuel L. Jackson's Mace Windu. If Coker does end up working on a new film for the franchise, there's a huge possibility that it could involve the Jedi Master.


For now, Disney and Lucasfilm have not yet made any announcements about the future of Star Wars. However, there is a huge possibility that we'll hear from the studios by early next year. Stay tuned for more updates on this story.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is currently screening in theaters worldwide.
