Christian Bale has done it all, he played a hero in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, he played the villain in Marvel Studios Thor: Love and Thunderhe even voiced a character in Disney’s Pocahontas. Well, the Oscar winner wants to join another big franchise, star wars.
By speaking with The Hollywood Reporterthe Dark Knight star said he could be persuaded to join the Star Wars franchise, but only to continue the work of the notorious unidentified stormtrooper who hit his head on the door frame in the background of A new hope.
“All I ever wanted in Star Wars was to be in a Star Wars outfit and bang my head against a door or something as I passed. The real nerds who watched too much Star Wars have always heard of that scene where the Stormtrooper bangs his head against the door as he walks by. I wanted to be that guy. That was it. But look, if I’m lucky enough to be more than that, oh man, Yeah. What fun that would be. I still have the numbers from when I was little. I also know Kathy Kennedy very well because she was working with Spielberg when I did Empire of the Sun, and now she’s directing the Star Wars universe.
Lucasfilm has several projects in various stages of development, including Taika Waititi’s star wars film by Patty Jenkins Thieves Squadron film (despite rumors of complete cancellation), AhsokaSeason 3 of The Mandalorian, Skeleton crewand The Acolyte. There are also whispers of a second season of Boba Fett’s Book in the works. If Christian Bale wants to join the star wars universe, Lucasfilm will certainly find a place for it.
