Our homies at Star Wars Underworld pointed us toward this: Hitfix has confirmed that Greig Fraser will be the cinematographer on Gareth Edwards and Gary Whitta’s untitled Star Wars stand-alone spin-off film.
And you’re doing a “Star Wars” movie!
And then I’m doing a fucking “Star Wars” movie, which is like – I don’t know about you but “Star Wars” is like my first film love, do you know what I mean?
Fraser has a lot of films under his belt, a lot of gritty stuff and a lot of good looking stuff too. So we’re pretty lucky to have him on a Star Wars film I think. What it does tell me, personally, is that unless they hired Fraser to mimic the look of past Star Wars films, this stand-alone film is going to look really different than what we’ve seen from Star Wars before.
I know some fans are going to be shocked by this quote from Fraser:
I hadn’t seen “Godzilla” when I took “Star Wars.” I haven’t seen movies in ages because of the kids but I sat down and I watched it with him and we talked about all the pros and all the cons. And we basically just talked about what we loved about each of the [“Star Wars”] films and what we hated about each of the films.
