Yesterday, we brought you news that Doctor Who showrunner Steven Moffat was being rumored to be writing and/or directing one of the new Star Wars flicks.

Now it looks like this won’t be happening in a galaxy far, far away.

Steven Moffat’s wife, Sue Vertue, addressed those rumors, taking to Twitter in order to deny the reports from Jedi News that her hubby would serve either as a writer, director or even a producer in any upcoming Star Wars project.

"Just in case you've seen rumors that #stevenmoffat is doing Star Wars - that's news to him!"

With Steven Moffat already pulling double duty as Doctor Who and Sherlock showrunner and main writer (he's already sorta confirmed that he would be back as Who showrunner for a ninth season), it’s not so surprising that Moffat may not have the time to spare for an upcoming Star Wars flick.

Are you guys disappointed to see Steven Moffat won’t be involved in any upcoming Star Wars project after all?
