Gary Whitta (The Book of Eli, After Earth) has finished his work on the Gareth Edwards-directed standalone ‘Star Wars’ film. “Gary has been a wonderful, inspired contributor and I enjoyed working with him tremendously,” said Edwards in a statement to THR. “I’m so grateful for all of his contributions. ”  Said Whitta, “The year I spent working with Lucasfilm on this Star Wars film has been by far the most rewarding period of my entire career. As a lifelong Star Wars fan I’m deeply grateful to have had the rare opportunity to contribute to a new chapter in its ongoing cinematic legacy. The film is going to be amazing.” Although unconfirmed, a recent rumor claims that this standalone ‘Star Wars’ film involves bounty hunters looking to steal the plans for the Death Star.
