"STAR WARS" LIVE ACTION TV SERIES PUT ON HOLD AGAIN

Ah, people the good news is that the working week is over, but the bad news is that a huge sf project that has been on and off for some time now, has been put to rest again. Earlier this year, a lot of you got really excited when I told you that a live action TV series based on "Star Wars" is in preparation, but now the production has stopped moving forward again. Here's what George Lucas said plain and simple for the "ComicBook Movie":
The live action TV show is kind of on hold because we have scripts, but we don't know how to do them. They literally are "Star Wars", only we're going to have to try to do them at a tenth the cost. And it's a huge challenge, a lot bigger than what we thought it was gonna be.
If you remember, in HOLLYWOOD SPY's previous post on this topic, I've informed you that "Star Wars" TV series were supposed to be set in the period between the films "Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith" and "Star Wars: A New Hope" with some of the minor characters from the films now taking the lead role on TV.

  1. I can't imagine a TV show! I don't think I could handle that!

  2. oh, why not, Lyds? A nice sf show with amazing sets, stunning new planets, great alien characters, costumes, ships, stories ...

  3. I like the timing of the show. Hopefully they can pull it off.

    We'll see...maybe. I don't know. I don't have a lot of high hopes for some of these projects.

    I'm just hoping--right now--that A Game of Thrones will be good.

  4. I don't think this thing is ever going to see the light of day, which is really too bad, cause I thought it had potential to be good. Oh well, bring on the next new SciFi show!

    yes, we could really do some sf but it's true that 2011 will bring us a lot of TV comfort with GAME OF THRONES, THE BORGIAS, SPARTACUS THE GODS OF ARENA and BLOOD AND SAND, CAMELOT, the new seasons of MERLIN ....

    @Bryan
    and I'm afraid if they make it with smaller budget it would turned out mediocre or something :((

    yes, but you do know that TV programmes do not bring back as much money as films :)

    @Perin
    pa mozda da otvoris neki fond u Banjaluci pa da ljudi uplacuju pare za Lukasa, i onda ako svi to uradimo sirom sveta, mozda nakupimo dovoljno za njegove ideje :)

  11. DEZMOND - Well that's a bummer. I even watched the cartoon Star Wars the Clone Wars with my kiddos. Hopefully they'll work it out! And you know I'll be here tomorrow. =D Happy Friday!

  12. Dezmond,
    What is George Lucas up to these days?

  13. I think it would be awesome to have a Star Wars TV show. People love a good Sci-Fi Adventure show, and particularly if they are already familiar with the storyline and characters. I'll keep my fingers crossed!

  14. I'm thinking that with all of the stuff they can do with computers these days that they could actually make TV episodes at a tenth of the cost of a movie and it would look just fine.

    happy weekend to you as well :)

    @Lisa
    I'm not sure, I think he is secretly preparing INDIANA JONES 5, beside producing STAR WARS animated series.

    @Tom
    I'm keeping them crossed as well :)

    it would look fine to us, but you know what kind of perfectionist Lucas is.

    @Avalon
    yes, it might be to futuristic for your medieval taste :))

  17. I just want to play Knights of the Old Republic now. Thanks.

    And where's Jonathan Rhys Meyers? He's not on the poll. I vote Jonathan Rhys Meyers!! *whining*

    ;P

  18. well, Palindrome, this is really a proof that you don't visit often.
    Not only that Rhys Meyers already competed in THE BEST BRITISH LAD poll earlier this summer in HOLLYWOOD SPY, but he also won it and had a long victorious post here with stunning pics.

  19. True. 95% of the time I don't blog from home and your comment format doesn't work on the go or at my office.

    And it's good to know that he won. He's the hottest, I do declare.
