How about a Mace Windu Star Wars spinoff movie?

Well, if a reddit QnA is anything to go by, it might be in the works.

Apparently, up and coming director AJ Edwards, who recently debuted his latest indie film The Better Angels, took part in a QnA where a fan asked if there was any truth to the rumor that he was involved with Star Wars.

Edwards' response was that he wasn't able to say a lot about it, but then he dropped a bomb by stating it will focus on Mace Windu.

The Better Angels is a great film and I can't wait for the world to see it. Is there any truth to the rumor you will be directing a spin-off Star Wars film?

Talking about it, not able to say a lot yet.

It will focus on Mace Windu.

Mace Windu, played by Samuel L. Jackson, was a Jedi Knight featured in the Star Wars prequelsPerhaps Disney is thinking of going with an origin story for the character?

Of course, AJ Edwards could be pulling everyone's leg to garnish a bit of attention, or maybe just too have a little bit of fun.

It wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility for Disney to go with a fresh face to direct a Star Wars spinoff as they have named Josh Trank (Fantastic Four, Chronicle) and Gareth Edwards (Godzilla, Monsters) on two of the movies.

It's currently rumored that the Star Wars spinoffs will be about Han Solo, Boba Fett and Luke Skywalker.
