Star Wars: Domhnall Gleeson Says The Script For The Rise Of Skywalker Was "A Page Turner"

"You feel part of this tiny club that get to read these things ahead of other people."

General Hux actor, Domhnall Gleeson was recently interviewed by Collider to talk about his latest film, The Kitchen, which stars Melissa McCarthy, Tiffany Haddish and Elisabeth Moss as three 1978 housewives from Hell's Kitchen whose mobster husbands have been sent to prison by the FBI. The ladies are then forced to take matters into their own hands by assuming control of the Irish mafia, from running rackets to taking out the competition while getting on the bad side of Domhnall Gleeson's character, an intense Vietnam vet who worked for the neighbourhood gangsters as a hitman.

During the interview Steve 'Frosty' Weintraub asked Gleeson about production on Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. Especially what it was like reading the script by J.J. Abrams and Chris Terio for the very first time and what it was like to be part of the Star Wars franchise. Gleeson replied:

"It's not the way I think about it, is the total honest truth. Without being blasé like, I like being part of good films. I think the two films and hopefully the three films because I have not seen the third one, I hope, I think they're two really really good films. I hope the next ones really good too. I like being in good movies more than I like being in franchises or anything else. So similarly to this, I’m just proud to have been part of something good. Because, often times it doesn’t work out, so when it does it feels great."
"It was cool. It was a page turner. And, it was different from what I thought, and it was great. It was exciting. And also, you feel part of this tiny club that get to read these things ahead of other people, and that feels great and I really did enjoy that. I think it's going to be cool."

Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker will be released in theatres on December 20th. With Episode VII director J.J. Abrams returning and will star Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Kelly Marie Tran, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Keri Russell, Richard E. Grant, Naomi Ackie, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Joonas Suotamo, and the late Carrie Fisher.
