GODZILLA's Gareth Edwards Attached To STAR WARS Spin-off Movie
Though Edwards is attached to direct the second and third Godzilla (third?!?) movies, they are still very much in the planning stages. No script exists for the second one yet. So this allows Edwards to take on other projects, and what project is more coveted right now than a Star Wars film? This spin-off film is set to release mid-December of 2016."Ever since I saw Star Wars I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the rest of my life - join the Rebel Alliance! I could not be more excited & honored to go on this mission with Lucasfilm," said Edwards in a statement released after THR broke the news.
Book of Eli scribe Gary Whitta is writing the screenplay right now. And as the Star Wars projects are shrouded in secrecy, no one is saying who gets the first spin-off film. There is all sorts of speculation from a Boba Fett film to a Han Solo origin story.
Time will tell.
