Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher writes a Star Wars book.

58-year-old Carrie Fisher, who starred as Princess Leia in the original trilogy, has kept detailed notes of her on-set experiences and is set to transform them into a book.

A source explained: "Carrie kept diaries throughout the filming and has a note of everything. Now she's making her memoirs into a book about 'Star Wars', movie execs want her to write a satirical, raunchy script about what making 'Star Wars' was really like."

Carrie Fisher had several on-set bust-ups with 'Star Wars' creator George Lucas over his desire for her to wear a bra under her costume, and such stories are thought to be perfect for the new book.

The source told The Sun newspaper: "They think it could be really funny, as nobody would expect it to have been so wild between cast and crew.

"Carrie's written scripts before, so as soon as she hands it over they'll option it to studios, with Disney and Lucasfilm getting first read."

Carrie is set to reprise the role of Princess Leia in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens', which will open in December.

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens will be in theaters on December 18, 2015.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens, directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan & Abrams, features a cast including actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Academy Award winner Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie, Crystal Clarke, Pip Andersen, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow. They will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker.
