'Fantastic Four' Director Josh Trank Directing Stand-Alone 'Star Wars' Film!

The Fantastic Four director Josh Trank is set to direct a stand alone Star Wars film, separate from the new trilogy, to explore deeper aspects of the world!

“We’re thrilled to welcome Josh into the family,” Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said in a statement. “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 story lines of Episodes I through IX.”

“The magic of the Star Wars Universe defined my entire childhood. The opportunity to expand on that experience for future generations is the most incredible dream of all time,” Josh said.

    Is this after the Fantastic Four “reboot?” Because, if it is, the studio may want to wait until they see how badly The FF bombs. The movie will die a bad death and Josh will be worth much less.

    Might want to rethink giving him an important movie like this Lucasfilm. Smart of him to get a contract now. Dumb of them.
