The big news of the day is that Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards will be directing a mystery Star Wars film for release on December 16, 2016. What does that mean, though, for another big screen adventure with the King of Monsters? ComingSoon.net’s ShockTillYouDrop.com has an update straight from Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull.
Gareth’s filmmaking talent makes him one of his generation’s most creative and visionary directors, says Tull. The plan has always been for Gareth to direct a different film before we started on another ‘Godzilla,’ but who knew it would be a ‘Star Wars’ installment? We have a great plan in store for ‘Godzilla’ fans and I am looking forward to seeing Gareths imprint on the ‘Star Wars’ universe.
The Hollywood Reporter goes on to say that Edwards is attached not only to a Godzilla sequel, but for a full Godzilla trilogy.
