Star Wars: Shawn (Free Guy, Deadpool) Levy to Direct New Movie

Shawn Levy to Direct New ‘Star Wars’ Movie

The filmmaker has a full plate already, with Deadpool 3 up next.


It is unclear when this project could happen.

Levy is on board to direct the upcoming third Deadpool movie for Marvel Studios. That feature, starring Ryan Reynolds and Hugh Jackman, has a release date of Nov. 8, 2024. As a producer, he and his 21 Laps also have the final episodes of Stranger Things coming up, with the fifth season in the writing stage at this point and without a set release date.

On the streaming TV side, Lucasfilm has full docket, with Andor currently streaming, and The Acolyte beginning production this week.
A third season of The Mandalorian, as well as the spinoff Ahsoka, are also on the way.

In March, Levy unveiled The Adam Project, a time travel family film in which its protagonist, played by Reynolds, welded a weapon that served the same purpose as a lightsaber.

“If there was any doubt about my fanhood of Star Wars and all things a galaxy far, far away, I’ve eliminated that doubt,” Levy said.
