Posted June 4, 2014 by John Newby in Movies

Shortly after announcing that Gareth Edwards would be directing an upcoming Star Wars film, the official web site has revealed another director.

Josh Trank, known for Chronicle and the upcoming Fantastic Four reboot, will be making one of the movies set apart from the core saga. Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy confirmed the move on the official Star Wars web site.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Josh into the family,” she said. “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.”

No information was given about a possible release date.
