Oscar-nominated filmmaker Stephen Daldry is in early talks for the film, which would center on the Jedi Master who has been played by both Alec Guinness and Ewan McGregor. In the original Star Wars trilogy, Kenobi was a desert-dwelling and war-weary hermit. He was a mentor to a young Luke before being cut down by Darth Vader, his former pupil. Alec Guinness played Kenobi, garnering him an Oscar nomination. The character got star treatment in the George Lucas-directed prequels.
