Oscar-nominated director Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot, The Hours) is in early talks to direct a Star Wars standalone movie centering on Obi-Wan Kenobi. Sources say talks are at the earliest of stages and that the project has no script. If a deal makes, Daldry would oversee the development and writing with Lucasfilm brass. It's not known at this stage if Ewan McGregor will reprise his role, but he has said he would be open to playing the character again. The Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone is one of several projects being developed by Lucasfilm and Disney that fall outside the trilogies telling the saga of the Skywalker family. A Han Solo movie is now in the final stages of shooting under new director Ron Howard and the studio is also looking at movies featuring Yoda and bounty hunter Boba Fett, among others.
