Gareth Edwards

Gareth Edwards, fresh from the massive hit but critically lukewarm-received GODZILLA, has been attached to direct one of the standalone STAR WARS spin-off films which will follow Episode VII.

Gary Whitta (THE BOOK OF ELI) will script the as-yet unknown film. Rumours that the film will focus on Boba Fett, Yoda or Han Solo have yet to be confirmed.

Despite its massive box office draw, GODZILLA has failed to please many fans, but let's hope Edwards can weave some of the MONSTERS magic on the STAR WARS universe.

The film has been scheduled for release on December 16th, 2016. More news when we have it.
