Eternals director Chloe Zhao comments on if she would be willing to direct Kevin Feige’s Star Wars movie.

Buried underneath all of Kevin Feige’s many Marvel projects lies the lone Star Wars film he is developing with Loki writer Michael Waldron. When the project was first announced, Feige teased that he already had a Marvel actor in mind.

However, a ton is still unknown about Kevin Feige’s Star Wars project, including its director. Eternals director Chloe Zhao recently made an interesting comment about Star Wars and in an interview with The Playlist, Zhao said she would be game to director Feige’s film if asked:

“I would. I’ll do anything Kevin asked me to do.”

Here is the synopsis for Chloe Zhao’s Eternals:

“The story takes place across two time periods. One storyline is set in the past when they operated as a formidable team and a close family unit. The second storyline is in the present, when the group has fractured and split apart, content to live among humans, hiding in plain sight. The prevailing threat of the Deviants, which once again threatens the existence of mankind, means the Eternals need to put their differences aside and regroup.”

Chloe Zhao directed Eternals from a script she co-wrote with Patrick Burleigh, Kaz Firpo, and Ryan Firpo. The cast of the Marvel Studios project includes Gemma Chan as Sersi, Richard Madden as Ikaris, Kumail Nanjiani as Kingo, Lia McHugh as Sprite, Brian Tyree Henry as Phastos, Lauren Ridloff as Makkari, Barry Keoghan as Druig, Don Lee as Gilgamesh, Kit Harington as Dane Whitman, Salma Hayek as Ajak, and Angelina Jolie as Thena.

Eternals will hit theaters on November 5, 2021. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the upcoming MCU film and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
