Eternals Director Chloe Zhao Wants to Make a Star Wars Movie

Academy Award-winning director, Chloe Zhao, reveals that she’s interested in creating a Star Wars movie ahead of her MCU directorial debut.

Chloe Zhao, director of Marvel’s upcoming film Eternals, recently revealed that she wants to make a Star Wars movie. Earlier this year, the Chinese-American director made movie history after becoming the first woman of color to win the Best Director Oscar for Nomadland. Prior to her major directorial breakout, Zhao was known for creating indie festival darlings like Songs My Brothers Taught Me (2015) and The Rider (2017). 

It was announced that Zhao would be directing and co-writing Eternals in 2018. A complete 180 from the quiet, nature-oriented settings of her past films, the epic scale of Eternals was seemingly new territory for Zhao. Headlined by A-list actors like Angelina Jolie, Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, and Kumail Nanjiani, the MCU’s next installment arrives in theaters next month. The story follows a mythical race of immortal beings, the Eternals, who are responsible for shaping Earth’s history. Perhaps one of Marvel’s biggest projects yet, Eternals is the third big-budget feature in the MCU’s Phase 4, coming on the heels of Black Widow and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
