Kyle Newman (Fanboys) arbeitet grade an einem Biopic um Peter Mayhew, der Chewbacca spielte. Der Film soll quasi die Entstehung der Star Wars-Saga durch die Brille des Wookies erzählen. Nettes Konzept, auch wenn Newmans Fanboys eher für die Tonne war. Von Collider:
Mayhew recently tweeted, “Yes, we’re working with Kyle Newman and the team on CHEWIE, The Movie and are hopeful it can move forward.” Heat Vision followed up with a report Newman, the director of the Star Wars love letter Fanboys, acquired Mayhew’s life rights to further develop the script. There is no specific mention of Newman directing, but his involvement should help move the project along regardless. George Lucas gave an early approval to Fanboys, enough to lend the movie the official Star Wars sound effects. Chewie has a terribly appealing premise, but one that is probably dependent on Lucasfilm’s involvement for proper execution.
