A previously announced Star Wars project based on the Knights of the Old Republic video game series has landed a screenwriter, according to Buzzfeed.

The adaptation, based on the 2003-launching video game series of the same name, will reportedly be written by Alita: Battle Angel screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis. 

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy first mentioned the project in development in an April 16 chat with MTV News. Kennedy didn't clarify whether Knights of the Old Republic adaptation would be a TV or film project, though Buzzfeed reports it will be a film, the first in a potential trilogy.
