It's impossible to make a "good" 'Star Wars' movie in one year, according to Patty Jenkins

Patty Jenkins thinks it's impossible to make a "good" 'Star Wars' movie in one year.

The 49-year-old director currently had various film and TV projects in the pipeline – including 'Rogue Squadron', an upcoming 'Star Wars' film, as well as the biographical drama 'Cleopatra' – but Patty has insisted she won't be rushing anything.

She shared: "You can never do it in one year. You could never do a good 'Star Wars' movie in one year or a good 'Cleopatra' in one year. I think each of those movies take two years probably.

"But I do think, as I even learned on the two 'Wonder Woman's, I already had sold a limited TV series that I was in love with when they decided to move the 'Wonder Woman 1984' release date up. So suddenly it was happening on top of each other. And I was actually able to write a huge treatment and have a bunch of creative meetings and go off and do my show while pre-production was happening for 'Wonder Woman 1984'."

Despite her busy schedule, Patty is confident she'll be able to balance all of her projects.

Speaking to Collider, the acclaimed director explained: "Certainly, until I'm on set shooting 'Star Wars', I could be developing all sorts of other things and pushing them forward. It is actually possible.

"So, I think that's apparently how people do it, do multiple things at one time, which I'm usually pretty singularly focused, but I'm getting better at this all the time."
