Your task is to think of who you would hire if you were in control of the next big Star Wars movie (or trilogy, whatever you want). You can choose one director and three main actors/actresses as your new characters. The only rule is you cannot choose any actors or actresses that have already been in a Star Wars movie before. Directors are free-for-all so choose whomever you want to direct.
Who do you choose?
Here are my choices:
Director: George Lucas
Actor 1 – Keanu Reeves (Darth Revan)
Actor 2 – Jake Gyllenhaal (Darth Malak)
Actress 3 – Margot Robbie (Bastila Shan)
And the title of my film will be – Star Wars: Revan. It’s no secret that I am a huge Keanu Reeves fan (I’ve liked him ever since Speed, Johnny Mnemonic and Point Break days) and I also admire Jake Gyllenhaal and I adore Margot Robbie.
So there you have it. Could you see Keanu Reeves as Darth Revan? Could you see Jake Gyllenhaal as the Jedi Knight who also turned to the dark side with Revan and then turned on him? What about Margot Robbie as Jedi Bastila Shan?
I think this would work wonderfully and I would give anything for George Lucas to return to directing another Star Wars movie.
Let me know what you think and what your choices would be!
