All in a dream, all in a dream...

Simon Pegg wants to write a couple of episodes of the planned STAR WARS TV show. What an obvious yet cracking idea that'd be. My idea for a STAR WARS TV show will never happen, because it made too much sense: there's a ton of creators who grew up loving STAR WARS as kids, guys like Pegg and Kevin Smith, who'd work for scale just to get a chance to do whatever the hell they liked in that universe. So let them tell a one-hour story set from any point in the saga, in an anthology series. Cast the net far and wide to get scripts in. My personal dream was always to see Garth Ennis write a little war movie set on Hoth from a Stormtrooper's P.O.V. - basically, CROSS OF IRON with AT-ATs.

I'd love to see Andy Diggle just do Han Solo/Chewbacca heist stories over and over again.

Yup, The Adventures of Han and Chewie is what I'd like to see!!

God, aye. Need to recast a young Han, though. Back when I used to dream of "Young Han" movies, I always had SIX FEET UNDER's Peter Krauss in the role for some reason. Similar laconic drawl, I guess. But he's probably older now than Ford was when he first played Solo.
