According to Collider editor-in-chief Steven Weintraub, pre-production on the Disney+ series had been shuttered for weeks over dissatisfaction regarding the miniseries’ story and scripts. Before news of the cancellation went public, Tony Gilroy signed on to write the pilot episode for the series.
This comes after the author of the story about Gilroy joining the project, Joe Otterson, admitted that he was originally going to break the news that the project was not moving forward – before being informed that Gilroy had come on board.
That was the original tip I got. I prepped the story but then it turned out to not be the case. I rewrote accordingly but an old version of the headline got saved by mistake. It has been fixed
