Jack Thorne Brought In To Fix ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ Script

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ hits theaters in December but it looks as if Colin Trevorrow and Derek Connolly have hit some rough water with the story for ‘Episode IX’ and Jack Thorne has been brought in to work on the script according to reports by the Hollywood Reporter. The report continues to say it is unclear how extensive the rewrites will be.

Thorne has 26 writing credits to his name, with an episode of ‘Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams’ the most intriguing of his resume.

The final installment of the new trilogy is expected to start filming January 2018 which gives the writing team five months to get the script in order, but first fans have to survive ‘The Last Jedi.’
