Gareth Edwards to Helm Next Star Wars Movie
J.J. Abrams’s Star Wars: Episode VII has barely started shooting but Lucasfilm and Disney, living up to their promise that we’ll see a Star Wars film once a year, has announced that Gareth Edwards will direct the first stand-alone feature in the franchise.
Edwards, who recently set the box-office ablaze with his re-imaging of Toho’s beloved Godzilla, has expressed much excitement, with Star Wars having inspired him to become a film director, while screenwriter Gary Whittas (The book of Eli) describes it as “A dream come true”.
Star Wars: ??? is due for release on Dec 16, 2016.
