A Quiet Place was a surprise hit when it released last year. Movie Web spoke to the writers of the film, Scott Beck & Bryan Woods, recently and they shared information about a meeting they recently had with Lucasfilm.
From Movie Web:
“We went into Lucasfilm in the wake of A Quiet Place and they wanted to talk to us about Indiana Jones and Star Wars. And we’re like, ‘We wanna talk to you about, what is Star Wars before it was Star Wars?’ You guys have a responsibility to start a new franchise. That’s where our hearts have always been, just trying to create original ideas.”
That quote was from Bryan Woods. Scott Beck also chimed in with info on the conversation they had.
“Without giving away too much… it was simply ruminating on if we did an Indiana Jones movie, what would we want to see in Indiana Jones? Or if we did a Star Wars movie, what’s that chapter of the whole universe that we would want to see? So it very much was an open canvas talk. It started going down the line a little bit but, again, as Bryan said, it’s just not our DNA. We would rather create what the next Indiana Jones could be.”
