Lucasfilm did not respond to a request for comment. During Disney’s investor day in December 2020, Lucasfilm CEO Kathleen Kennedy announced Jenkins’ involvement. Jenkins claimed she was inspired by her fighter pilot father for the project and wants to produce the “best fighter pilot movie ever made” in a separate video uploaded on Twitter.

However, no screenwriter was mentioned in the statement. There’s not much more known about the project, and it’s unclear how long Robinson has been working on it, but insiders claim he’s now frantically typing away on a draught. The film will begin pre-production this autumn in preparation for a shoot in 2022. It will be released on December 22, 2023.

Robinson’s diverse career makes him an intriguing candidate for a writer. Since Invention of Lying, he’s established himself as a sought-after adventure writer, having contributed to Love and Monsters, a post-apocalyptic creature feature starring Dylan O’Brien set for release in 2020, and the Edge of Tomorrow sequel, Live Die Repeat and Repeat, currently in development at Warner Bros. He also worked on the Warner Bros. adaptation of Little Shop of Horrors, which is now in production.
