Lucasfilm is in talks with Iron Man duo Favreau and Downey Jr for a new Star Wars film.
Favreau and Downey Jr found success after career struggles, now in talks for Star Wars.
No Star Wars feature films since 2019's "The Rise of Skywalker."
The new film has a lighter tone, similar to past works of Favreau and Downey Jr.
No further details on the film have been released yet.
This would be an opportunity for Downey Jr after his fantasy film "Doolittle" failed to impress.
Downey Jr currently set to portray Lewis Strauss in Christopher Nolan's "Oppenheimer."
The film is based on J. Robert Oppenheimer, one of the lead scientists in the Manhattan Project.
Fans eagerly wait to see the magic that these two veterans will create for Star Wars franchise.
