Kyle Newman To Develop A Movie Based On The Life Of Peter Mayhew Titled “Chewie”


The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Kyle Newman,The director of “Fanboys” and hardcore Star Wars fan, has secured the rights to develop a film based on the life Peter Mayhew. The film titled “Chewie,” with a script  by Evan Susser and Van Robichaux, is said to to take place during the production of “A New Hope,” where we will see Peter try to balance his career as a hospital worker, while at the same time becoming an actor in the iconic role of Chewbacca.

No word on a release date yet, but both Kyle Newman and Peter Mayhew have confirmed their involvement with the project. Being a huge fan of Kyle Newman’s previous film “Fanboys,” and knowing the passion that he has for Star Wars, I can’t wait to see how this project develops, and have no doubt that “Chewie” will be a film every Star Wars fan will enjoy.
