John Wick director Chad Stahelski wants to make a Star Wars movie.
A former stuntman, Stahelski co-directed the first John Wick movie with David Leitch and then directed the three sequels on his own.
Although these 4 films constitute the entirety of his directorial filmography, the 55-year-old Stahelski is already developing new projects.
Stahelski’s projects outside of the John Wick franchise include the Highlander remake, the video game adaptations Rainbow Six and Ghost of Tsushima, the anime adaptation Black Samurai and the novel adaptation Shibumi.
As a guest on the Happy Sad Confused podcast hosted by Josh Horowitz, Stahelski also expressed interest in making a Star Wars movie.
The director has declared himself “a Star Wars man”, saying that the first movie had a significant impact on his life.
“It changed the course of my life”
“I’m a Star Wars guy. The first Star Wars changed the course of my life,” the director said:
Maybe one day, if you’re listening, Disney, you’ll reach out to me in a couple of years. I have some shots for Star Wars.
Using his expertise as a stunt coordinator, Stahelski became famous for his ability to create extraordinary choreographed action sequences in the John Wick films.
It is speculated that a Star Wars movie directed by Stahelski could feature successful lightsaber battles that focus on fluidity and precision.
John Wick’s elaborate neon color palettes are expected to bring a new perspective to the iconic Star Wars universe.
