Shawn Levy’s ‘Star Wars’ Movie Sets ‘Adam Project’ Writer Jonathan Tropper

Shawn Levy’s “Star Wars” movie has tapped “The Adam Project” writer Jonathan Tropper to write the script for the untitled feature, according to an insider with knowledge of the project.

Levy has been attached to the project since 2022, and will follow after the director is done with “Deadpool & Wolverine” and its current worldwide press tour. Additional details about the project are being kept under wraps.

Tropper and Levy have previously collaborated on the 2014 family drama “This Is Where I Leave You,” as well as on the script for the Mark Raso-directed Netflix film “Kodachrome,” which Levy produced.

Their most recent project was “The Adam Project,” which also starred Ryan Reynolds. The sci-fi adventure ranks as Netflix’s third most popular original film ever.

Levy is well aware of the number of directors who developed “Star Wars” movies in the past that did not get made — and he’s committed to getting his project across the finish line.

Previously, he acknowledged the odds against him, but enthusiastically stated his intention to develop a film worth making.

“I’ve been talking with Kathy Kennedy for a while now, and she’s been aware of my passion for this franchise for a long time,” Levy said in December 2022. “The stars finally aligned, and she came to me and was like, ‘Let’s do something here.’ And that’s as much as I can say. But this is definitely in development and not yet close to prep, so there’s a lot of work to be done.”

Tropper is repped by CAA, Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment and Felker Toczek.

Lucasfilm couldn’t be reached for comment.
