Josh Trank to Direct Stand-Alone Star Wars Movie!
“We’re thrilled to welcome Josh into the family,” says 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.”
This is in addition to the recently announced film that we have coming down the pipeline. Very interesting! Trank directed Chronicle and is working on the new Fantastic Four for Fox. This could be the film simply titled “Solo” slated for a 2018 release or they’ve added more films because that’s still aways away.
Our buddy Jeremy Conrad at FuriousFanboys.com has pointed out that Trank is a Simon Kinberg deciple. So things are making a lot of sense.
