I would love to see it, but they'd get him wrong. He has to be just as charismatic and just as devious as he is in the books. The studio would probably insist on him being another Vader clone; a bad guy, conveniently dressed in black, who is bad because the mo...

No Dark Jedi. Its been done, and its boring.

They were an awful idea. The Force should be something more spiritual than physical. Now the Force is something that tiny bacteria harness? It was silly and Lucas must agree because midichlorians were not mentioned again after Ep. 1.
