CHICAGO -- Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s next attempt to keep the George Lucas museum in Chicago involves another massive lakefront project.

Friends of the Parks filed a lawsuit to block the museum from being built near Soldier Field.

The Sun-Times reports the mayor is offering a favor to get that lawsuit dropped.

He's willing to support adding 525 acres of lakefront parkland in a project known as the Last Four Miles."

The cost was $450-million when it was first proposed in 2009.

No word on what it would cost now, or where the mayor would get the money.
