Josh Trank, director of Chronicle and the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, is helming the second standalone Star Wars movie, which quickly follows Lucasfilms' hiring of Godzilla's Gareth Edwards for the first spin-off.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Josh into the family,” said Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. “He is such an incredible talent and has a great imagination and sense of innovation. That makes him perfectly suited to Star Wars, and for this new slate of movies that reach beyond the core characters and storylines of Episodes I through IX.”
“The magic of the ‘Star Wars’ universe defined my entire childhood,” Trank said. “The opportunity to expand on that experience for future generations is the most incredible dream of all time.”
