Chewie moving forward with Fanboys director

0

One of the most interesting choices on the 2011 Black List of unproduced screenplays was Chewie, a look at the creation of Star Wars through the eyes of Peter Mayhew, the actor who played Chewbacca. Kyle Newman, director of Fanboys, acquired the script and is working on the production now.

I wasn't a big fan of Fanboys, but it is interesting to see Newman behind this project. Chewie apparently has a more satirical look at the process of making the movies, and while Lucas isn't too great at poking fun at himself, he did give the green light to Fanboys. A good relationship with Lucas means more liberty with Chewie, which could make for a pretty great movie if it's done right.

Jenika is a mystery. Who is she? What is she? Where is she? Most likely, she's smelling your hair when you're not looking. more + disclosures
