Kevin Burns has been tapped by Lucasfilm Ltd. to produce the documentary expected to be one of the centerpieces on Fox's upcoming "Star Wars Trilogy" DVD set. Documentary is expected to run more than two hours; Emmy-winning Burns was selected to bring the same kind of exhaustive detail to the project as he did with his motion pictures "Cleopatra: The Film That Changed Hollywood" and "Marilyn Monroe: The Final Days," among others. "Cleopatra" had won a 2001 DVD Exclusive Award.
