I don’t know or care all that much about the fortunes of Lucasfilm and the Star Wars franchise. But the John Campea rumor about Lucasfilm honcho Kathleen Kennedy possibly losing her job between now and next summer (which World of Reel has included a link to) got my attention.
John Campea on rumored demise of Lucasfilm’s Kennedy (11.22): “This is what I have heard: I have heard that the decision to remove Kathy Kennedy has already been made and that she will be gone either sometime before or very, very, very shortly after the release of Indiana Jones 5.
“Now, I want to be very, very clear here: I cannot independently say to you and confirm to you that this is a fact. I will say that one of the two people that have contacted me has a 1000% average on the things they’ve informed me of.”
Funny Ruimy statement: “My advice to Disney is simple: DON’T HIRE RIAN JOHNSON [to make a new Star Wars trilogy]. Not because he’s a bad filmmaker — he’s actually a pretty good one. [This is more] from the fact that a majority of Star Wars diehards just plainly do not like him for what he did with The Last Jedi.”
