Officials behind “Star Wars” creator George Lucas’ bid to build a museum along Chicago’s lakefront are considering other cities and sites for the project, a city of Chicago lawyer told a federal judge, indicating the lawsuit filed to block the proposal has put the project in jeopardy.

Attorney Brian Sieve made the comments during a hearing related to a lawsuit filed by the preservation group Friends of the Parks to block the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art.

The “uncertainty and delay … has caused the museum to, frankly, consider other cities and other sites that it may relocate to and that may put the entire project in jeopardy,” Sieve said.

Asked after the hearing which cities were courting the museum, Sieve did not say.
