Is Lucasfilm Developing a KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC Film?

Movie Lucasfilm by Joey Paur

Another crazy Star Wars rumor has found its way online, and I'm sure there's going to be a ton more rumors throughout the years. The thing you have to understand is as of right now, everything Star Wars is up for grabs, Lucasfilm and Disney are throwing around all kinds of ideas. If the fans have thought of it, I'm sure Lucasfilm has as well. They are going to want to make a ton of awesome Star Wars movies, and there's enough room to tell them all as long as people are going to see them, and the movies are making money. Remember, the studio wants to released 2 to 3 Star Wars films a year, and that could happen for as long as they want to keep making them. 20 years from now we could still be seeing Star Wars movies being made.

As for the latest rumor, AICN has heard that Drew Karpyshyn, the writer of video games such as Star Wars: The Old Republic, Mass Effect, and Mass Effect 2 is currently writting a movie script for Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. The writer recently left Bioware to pursue a career in screenwriting, and this rumor started with the people that work at Bioware. There's no confirmation of this, but like I said earlier, there's a strong possibility that Lucasfilm has considered this or is considering it just like every other Star Wars story they can tell. 

It would be amazing if we ended up seeing a Knights of the Old Republic movie somewhere down the line, but who knows if it's really being written by Karpyshn. As of right now only one Star Wars movie is set in stone, and that is Star Wars: Episode VII. What do you think of this latest rumor? Is it something you'd like to see happen?
