The Hollywood Reporter has reported that a rewrite is in the works for Star Wars Episode IX. To go along with the rewrite the team has added Jack Thorne to help with the script for the upcoming Star Wars sequel. According to the website’s sources, Jack Thorne will be revising the current script by director Colin Trevorrow and his writing partner, Derek Connolly, since “a fresh pair of eyes was needed.” Production for Star Wars Episode IX will start next January and the film is set to premiere on May 24, 2019. No other details are confirmed at this time so stay tuned for updates.
