'Star Wars' producer Rick McCallum joins 'R'Ha' adaptation

'R'Ha' still
Star Wars producer Rick McCallum has signed on for R'Ha.

The former Lucasfilm head will work with director Kaleb Lechowski to adapt the latter's sci-fi short into a full-length movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Star Wars: Clone Wars producer Steve Tzirlin will join McCallum, with Matthew Graham - who worked on the BBC's Life on Mars as well as an aborted Star Wars live action TV show - signing up to write the screenplay.

R'Ha centres around the titular alien race, who protect their solar system from an invasion.

"What inspires me and our team is that there are no humans whatsoever in the film, and yet Kaleb has come up with a world that is so engaging and so alive and so real that it really is very different from anything else I have seen in the sci-fi world," said McCallum.

"We want to make it as a European film, using VFX facilities from all over Central and Eastern Europe and Asia, and do it for a price that not only allows Kaleb total control of his unique vision, but is incomprehensible in the big-budget VFX world that we now live in."

McCallum has not worked on a sci-fi project since the conclusion of the Star Wars prequel trilogy.
