Just a week after Godzilla roared into box office history with a huge opening weekend haul, the movie’s director, Gareth Edwards, has been tapped to direct an upcoming Star Wars spin-off for Disney, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It isn’t yet known which spin-off Edwards would be helming, but the rumored ones include movies based on Boba Fett, Yoda, a young Han Solo, and a Red Five movie, which would likely be based on an X-Wing squadron.
Worry not, Godzilla fans, because the site is also reporting that as of right now, Edwards is still attached to do two more Godzilla movies. Any sequel would still be early in development, and it’s possible that Disney could manage to get Edwards in to direct a Star Wars spin-off for late-2016 before Godzilla 2 goes into production. No scripts exist for more Godzilla yet; meanwhile, the scripts for the upcoming Star Wars spin-offs are already being written.
We’ll have more information on Gareth Edwards’ mystery Star Wars movie when it becomes available.
