Knight boards Star Wars movie, Vertigo remake

“Peaky Blinders” and “See” creator inks some plum deals


“Peaky Blinders” creator Steven Knight has inked two lucrative deals this month. First, he’ll write a new untitled Star Wars project that Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (Ms. Marvel) is attached to direct. This is the same project Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson recently departed.

The movie is widely expected to be among Lucasfilm’s first Star Wars films since 2019’s Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. More information about the movie, including a possible title, is expected to be announced at the Star Wars Celebration in London in April, says Variety. (Online rumors also suggest that Lucasfilm will announce a new Star Wars trilogy at the same event).

In addition to that juicy gig, Knight has been tapped to write a remake of Vertigo for Paramount Pictures and Team Downey.

Robert Downey Jr will play the title role in the film, a remake of the 1958 Alfred Hitchcock classic about a former police detective forced to retire after a line of duty trauma that leaves him with fear of heights and vertigo.
