Star Wars: The Old Republic is looking more and more likely with Laeta Kalogridis tapped to write a trilogy of films

Buzzfeed are reporting that Laeta Kalogridis is to become the first woman to write a Star Wars film and that she's currently penning the script to a film adaptation of the universe set out in the Knights of the Old Republic games.

There have been rumours for some time that a big-screen visit to The Old Republic was on the cards and Kathleen Kennedy has also confirmed that its something that Lucasfilm are actively considering. Combined with suggestions that David Benioff and D.B.Weiss are working on a trilogy of films set in the distant past it seems pretty clear that if this comes to fruition, the two could well be the same project.

However, Buzzfeed also reports that Laeta Kalogridis has been attached the Knights of the Old Republic adaptation since April 2018 - and if so this predate the Benioff/Weiss hiring. Therefore there's the possibility that this is a separate, previously unreported, branch of Star Wars films that might be independent of either the Game of Thrones showrunners OR Rian Johnson's work.

Kalogridis is apparently working on a trilogy based around the storyline of the games - so there's a good chance we could get to see Darth Revan, Bastila Shan and Darth Malak on film.
