Kyle Newman to Direct "Chewie"

By: Dominic Jones 

The Hollywood Reporter revealed today that Fanboys director Kyle Newman is set to direct and produce Chewie, a film centered around the life of Peter Mayhew, the actor who portrayed Chewbacca in the Star Wars saga. The film is written by Evan Susser and Van Robichaux, and will detail Peter's life during the making of the first Star Wars film as he balances his career as a hospital orderly and his role as the mighty Chewbacca. No word yet on a release date but this is definitely a project we will follow with great interest.
