    So a while back their were rumours Laeta Kalogridis was working on Knights of the Old Republic Script based on the much loved game. Now I dunno how many people have played the game on this forum but I thought it might be a bit of fun to say who we would cast in the roles if the rumour was true.

    Warning for those who haven't payed the game there maybe some spoilers in the thread.

    So here's mine(im sure you will disagree!).

    Revan - Ellen Page.
    I know alot of people will say Revan was a guy in legends, but personally I always played the character as a woman. Also think having a woman in the role would create an interesting and different love triangle between Revan, Bastila & Cath. I picked Page becuase I think she can do light and dark really well (look at her range from Juno to The Umbrella Academy). I think she is about the right age, you don't want some one too young they wouldn't feel like they had lived, but equally you want some one young enough to lead the film. My only worry is we've never really seen her do anything like a lightsaber duel.

    My back up option for Revan would be: Rosa Salazar

    Bastila Shan - Zazie Beetz
    I wasn't really a fan of Deadpool 2, but she was great as Domino. can defiantly see her as Bastila a character strong in the force but struggles with the dark side who has a connection to Revan.

    My back up option for Bastila would be: Hera Hilmarsdóttir (she was great in Mortal Engines even if the film wasn't great)

    Darth Malak - Jon Bernthal

    I can just see him as Sith lord of few words but just ruthless aggression.

    My back up option for Malak would be: Djimon Hounsou

    Carth Onasi - Jeremy Renner
    Character needs to be old enough to have a son in the Sith acedemy but young enough so a possible romance with Revan would be buyable. Renner can pull of both.

    Back up for Carth - Ben Foster

    Jolee Bindo - Chiwetel Ejiofor
    I think anyone who has played the game can see the obviousness of this one.

    backup for Jolee: Jeffrey Wright

    Juhani - Jing Tian
    Have to admit The Great Wall is a guilty pleasure of mine, and really like Jing Tian and would love to see her as a Jedi and Juhani has a great arc that she could definitely dig her teeth into.

    Back up for Juhani - Kate Mara

    Canderous Ordo - Lou Diamond Phillips
    Fairly obvious casting as a grisled Mandalorian, the guy does grumpy and action well. would be perfect.

    Back up for Canderous - Guillermo Díaz

    Mission Vao - Cailee-Spaeny
    Paciffic Rim - Uprising was not a good film (especially Charlie Day in it) but Spaeny managed to to be annoying in a character that 99% of performers would have struggled not to come across as annoying. Can just see Spaeny as the spikey Mission character.

    Back up for Mission - Dafne Keen

    HK-47 - Liev Schreiber(Voice)

    Jedi Masters:
    Peter Dinklage - Octavia Spencer - Mos Def - Amanda Peet

    If You where gonna bring in character from KOTOR 2 then:

    Meetra Surik (Jedi Exile) - Either Hera Hilmarsdóttir or Rosa Salazar I just want to see them in the film.

    Darth Nihilus - Ethan Hawke, can just see him as the sort of force junkie kind of character.

    Director: Zhang Yimou. I think he would make it look sensational and really revolutionary in Star Wars

    Director of Photography: Bradford Young - I know a lot of people thought Solo was to dark, but personally I think it is the most beautiful looking Star Wars film made yet. Between Solo and Arrival Youngs name alone is enough to make me buy a ticket to his next prject what ever that is, and I'd love to see him return to Star Wars.

    Writer: Im happy with Laeta Kalogridis, I've loved Alita, Shutter Island and Night Watch all of which she wrote, she has also produced Avatar which while I know its common place to slate these days but I still love, I've also heard good things about Altered Carbon. Yeah Teminator Genisys was naff, but that franchise is dead, thier just isn't anything new you can do with it.

    So these are my choices what about yours:
