News: Josh Trank To Direct Stand Alone Star Wars Film

More big news in the galaxy of Star Wars today.

Josh Trank, director of Chronicle, is taking control of another of the Star Wars spin off movies. His found footage film reinvigorated the genre and I'm sure will be an asset in this latest charge to get Star Wars headed in the right, more youthful direction. 

"We're thrilled to welcome Josh into the family. 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 storylines of Episodes I through IX."- Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. 

Trank is currently heading the Fantastic Four reboot and will then direct this Star Wars spin off.
