"You'll see at Christmas"

Disney's Star Wars revival has established a pattern of hiring directors who established themselves on acclaimed indie movies.

When asked whether he would direct a Star Wars movie by CNET, Wright said: "I guess so, yeah. Yeah. I have something crazy, but I can't tell you."

He refused to elaborate, other than to say: "You'll see at Christmas."

While that's far from a confirmation, we'll definitely be keeping an ear out for any announcements coming from Wright.

The third Star Wars spin-off movie was originally intended to be a Boba Fett film from Chronicle director Josh Trank. That project fell apart before Disney was ready to announce it officially.

Wright's most recent project is Baby Driver, which stars Ansel Elgort as a music-obsessed getaway driver from a gang of bank robbers. Kevin Spacey, Lily James, Jon Bernthal, Jon Hamm and Jamie Foxx also feature in the movie.
