So Gary Whitta Is Writing a Star Wars Movie

By Will Smith

The word is officially out.

Yesterday afternoon, the official Star Wars site announced that our own Gary Whitta will be writing the first stand-alone Star Wars film. All we know so far is that Gary will be working with director Gareth Edwards (of Monsters and this year's Godzilla), but we don't know which Star Wars character will get the standalone film treatment. Now I just need to convince Gary to include my Gungan genocide concept in his final script.
