Kennedy talked to other directors including Ben Affleck and also Matthew Vaughn who may have pitched to have Chloë Grace Moretz in the lead role.
From Hit Girl to Jedi? I wouldn’t have a problem with this casting, although how’s this for how young she is: She wasn’t even born yet when the Special Edition of A New Hope was re-released to theaters.
