Actor-director Taika Waititi is currently basking the success of his latest film Jojo Rabbit which has done wonders both critically and commercially. The film garnered multiple nominations at the prestigious Oscars 2020 ceremony and earned Taika Waititi an Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. It was speculated that Taika Waititi will be directing one of the three future Star Wars films for a long time, but now, the actor-director has refused to be a part of the decades-old film franchise.
Taika Waititi was speaking at the Oscar ceremony post his big win for the night. The topic of Star Wars came up inevitably as fans have been waiting to get some hints about Taika's involvement with Star Wars. Taika was asked if he has been approached by Lucasfilm to direct a future Star Wars movie. To this, Taika replied in his staple quirky way asking the reporter 'What does 'Approached' mean?'. Taika clarified furthermore that the only connection he has with the Star Wars franchise is that he has seen it.
As per reports, Taika already has multiple projects under his kitty with Next Goal Wins and Thor: Love and Thunder. As per reports, Taika Waititi will be finishing Next Goal Wins before hitting pre-production for the fourth installment in Marvel's Thor franchise. Taika is reportedly also writing the script for Thor: Love and Thunder before the film will hit production in late 2020.
