Star Wars: KOTOR film rumors, Sonic film delayed to fix its VFX

, and  (meaning no actors, directors, or producers are currently attached, which should indicate how early-stages this project currently is). This script, according to Buzzfeed, is the first of a possible If true, that would slam Kalogridis’s project up against Star Wars film trilogies from showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff from director/screenwriter Rian Johnson.

There’s always a chance that this -linked screenplay is the first step in a protracted process that never leads to production (spec scripts tend to come before true film development) or that it turns into something tailored for the upcoming Disney+ streaming service. Still, the video game franchise, shepherded by the game makers at BioWare, has always been beloved for its characters and scripts. Even its MMO incarnation, which launched in 2011 to uneven reviews, has been consistently lauded for its engrossing universe and stories. Hence, we’ll join our fellow Star Wars nerds and begin optimistically drooling already.

Speaking of optimism: our hopes that the upcoming film’s visual design and digital effects will get a legitimate revision went up after its director confirmed a three-month production delay. Director Jeff Fowler took to Twitter on Friday to share the news—the film will now launch on February 14, 2020, bumped from its original November 8, 2019 release date.

Interestingly, Fowler’s tweet used a very cartoony silhouette of Sonic’s telltale head and an apparently hand-drawn model of Sonic’s hand… wearing white gloves. The film’s reveal trailer included a version of Sonic who, instead of wearing gloves, had white-colored fur over his bare hands. These are the clearest signs yet of changes that Fowler alluded to in his previous mea culpa tweet about the launch trailer’s Sonic treatment.

Rounding out the Friday nerd-film news is word that Taika Waititi’s next live-action film project, a remake of the classic Japanese anime , has a release date: May 21, 2021. This, coincidentally, places the director’s next film directly against the already announced sequel John Wick: Chapter 4, which for now will also launch the same day.
