'Chronicle' filmmaker Josh Trank directing 'Star Wars' spin-off film
From Entertainment Weekly
Man, this is one busy galaxy …
While J.J. Abrams toils at Episode VII, launching a whole new trilogy of Star Wars films set three decades after the fall of the Empire and Darth Vader in Return of the Jedi, two other spin-off movies are also in the works.
High-level sources have previously told EW that one will be a young Han Solo story, and the other will focus on the bounty hunter Boba Fett. Godzilla filmmaker Gareth Edwards is directing one, and now we know who will be handling the other — Chronicle director Josh Trank
We just don’t know who is doing which — or if the deal has been altered further and we’ll be getting stories from totally new characters in the Star Wars universe.
What do know Edwards will be doing the first one, due in theater Dec. 16, 2016, and scripted by Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli).
Trank will be busy for the foreseeable future tackling a new version of The Fantastic Four.
