Rumor: Steven Moffat offered a Star Wars movie?

UPDATE: Moffat’s wife and Sherlock co-producer Sue Vertue has denied the rumor, saying that it’s “news to him!” Original report below:

moffatSo. Jedi News reports of rumblings that Doctor Who and Sherlock showrunner Steven Moffat has been offered a Star Wars film. They’re not sure if this is an Episode or standalone, but I’d guess at the latter.

Moffat is… highly controversial to say the least, particularly among female fans. But I do love his early Who (his/Matt Smith’s first full season is what hooked me on the show) and fairy-tale focus. Conflict! Of course, it’s just a rumor.

ABC’s The Goldbergs will have a Star Wars episode on May 6

The GoldbergsI thought it was odd that Lucasfilm was collaborating with CBS’ The Big Bang Theory for a Star Wars Day episode instead of a show on Disney-owned ABC, but today we get word that The Goldbergs will have one as well – on May 6th:

The episode sees Adam (Sean Giambrone) and Erica (Hayley Orrantia) encounter elaborately costumed Star Wars fans, including Reno 911′s Thomas Lennon, while waiting in line at the Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi opening.

Now I have to wonder… Will NBC (Community? Parks and Rec?) or Fox (Brooklyn Nine-Nine?) get in on the Star Wars action as well?
