Gary Whitta who is writing the first live action Star Wars stand-alone spin-off film says he would like to write a Star Wars novel one day.

With Lucasfilm willing to have that talk with him, the obvious choice would be that he writes the novel of the film he’s working on. That would be great for specific meaning debates we fans tend to have about Star Wars films. That said, it would be cool to have the people writing the films also writing the books.
I say make this happen.
