That Star Wars Daisy Ridley movie that is supposed to be happening still doesn’t have a finished script.

It’s known Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson were supposed to be writing the movie but bailed for some reason.

Steven Knight is now supposed to be writing who was announced following the departure of Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson a year ago, last March. A month later, the flick was officially announced by Disney; however, then the strikes happened, which ended for writers in September.

Back in January, the Star Wars fans site, Bespin Bulletin, reported Steven Knight had yet to complete a draft of the script.

Hasn’t read the script

Now Daisy Ridley confirms no script as she tells Collider she hasn’t read one while promoting the release of her latest movie Magpie at SXSW:

I know a script is happening, and I’m going to be reading it imminently, which is very exciting.

Ridley also told the site she thinks the title will stay as New Jedi Order and that filming could take place this year:

It could be, but I’m not sure. I think to be honest, the writers’ strike has obviously delayed quite a lot of things. So the intention was later this year. Hopefully, it will be. Otherwise, top of next, I would imagine.

The movie has no release date and is being directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.

Wild rumors have actually offered that the film will never see the light of day.
