Knights Of The Old Republic Movie In Development?

darthbaneHere’s a fascinating rumour. Ain’t It Cool is reporting that amongst a raft of concepts LucasFilm are exploring for future Star Wars movies, that one based on Knight Of The Old Republic could be in the works:

Drew Karpyshyn – the man that created the scenario and much of the dialogue in the STAR WARS: KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC. He also worked on JADE EMPIRE and STAR WARS: THE OLD REPUBLIC. Along with writing MASS EFFECT and MASS EFFECT 2. Well he left BIOWARE back in February of last year to work on “screenwriting” and it seems that BIOWARE is a hot bed of rumor regarding the notion that Drew Karpyshyn is working up a screenplay for a film version of KNIGHTS OF THE OLD REPUBLIC.

BioWare game devs are listed as one of the sources of the chatter – it could be just someone playing silly buggers or it’s the seed of something big in development.
