Guillermo del Toro is one of those filmmakers with a list of exciting yet unmade projects that could fill a To Do list for seven directors.

There are his famous examples –– a third ‘Hellboy’ movie, Lovecraft adaptation ‘At the Mountains of Madness’ –– but those are just the tip of his probable project iceberg.

And while he’s talked up a potential ‘Star Wars’ project before (a galaxy where there are plenty of movies either in development or hovering in limbo at any one time), we now have confirmation from writer (and ‘Foundation’ showrunner) David S. Goyer that the idea of a del Toro ‘Star Wars’ movie came closer than anyone has imagined.

David S. Goyer talks his unmade Guillermo del Toro ‘Star Wars’ script.

Goyer stopped by the Happy Sad Confused podcast to discuss the latest season of ‘Foundation’ and more, and dropped word about the ‘Star Wars’ script he wrote with del Toro looking to direct.

Here’s what Goyer had to say:

“I wrote an unproduced ‘Star Wars’ movie that Guillermo del Toro was going to direct. It was about four years ago. It’s a cool script.”

Goyer did not go into details about what the movie might have been, but del Toro took to social media to confirm his story and to heavily hint that it would have featured Jabba the Hutt.
