LANDO Movie and Why He Signed on For It — GeekTyrant

Last year it was announced that Lucasfilm Star Wars: Lando series was going to be reworked as a film and that Donald Glover was not only going to reprise his role, but he’s also going to write the movie with his brother Stephen Glover.

It’s been several months since we’ve had an update on the project but during a recent interview with THR, the actor talked about the project and shared why he signed on to do it. He explained:

“[Mr. and Mrs. Smith costar] Maya [Erskine] and I talk about nos a lot, it’s the only power you have in this industry. But I said yes because I like the characters and my kids love Star Wars. And at this point, I just know when something’s going to be good, because you’re really fighting the industry when you [put your imprint on a franchise of that magnitude]. And it’s not like … I was going to say, and it’s not like I hate the industry, but now I’m like, ‘Do I hate the industry?'”

Glover made his debut as Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, and that set up a lot more story to be told with the character. This is such a fun character and I love that he is going to be explored more in the Star Wars universe. We don’t have any story details to share, but I’m excited to see what Glover is planning.

The actor previously said he wanted to tell a story that he knew he would be happy with, and he doesn’t want to waste his time on a project that he’s not fully invested in, but said Lando is definitely a character he’d like to play again: “People kind of realized that their time was valuable. You only get so much. So I am not interested in doing anything that’s just going to be a waste of my time or just a paycheck. I’d much rather spend time with people that I enjoy. So it just has to be the right thing, which I think it could be. Lando is definitely somebody I’d like to hang out with.”

Glover previously shared his vision for a Lando project, describing it as Frasier in space: “It would be cool to see, like, Frasier in Space. Like, a high-end guy in space. All of these characters are very specific and they have very specific points of view, so it’s always going to be fun to see them traveling around to a planet that is the opposite of what they’re used to … And all of that seems like it would be fun to write, for sure.”

Are you looking forward to Glover’s Lando movie? Is there a particular story that you’d like to see told?
