'A Quiet Place' writers turn down offers to work on Star Wars
Los Angeles: A Quiet Place scribes Scott Beck and Bryan Woods have revealed that they declined to work on Lucasfilm's future Star Wars films as they insisted on creating a new franchise.
The duo have become one of the most sought after names in Hollywood following the success of John Krasinski-directed A Quiet Place and Lucas film caught up with them to talk about their iconic franchises – Star Wars and Indiana Jones.
In an interview with Movieweb, the scribes said that during their discussions with the studio's executives, they made their intentions clear about working on original ideas. We went into Lucasfilm in the wake of 'A Quiet Place' and they wanted to talk to us about 'Indiana Jones' and 'Star Wars'.
"And we're like, 'We wanna talk to you about what is 'Star Wars' before it was 'Star Wars'? You guys have a responsibility to start a new franchise. That's where our hearts have always been, just trying to create original ideas," Woods said. Beck revealed that discussions centred more around what their take would be on Indiana Jones or Star Wars.
