Star Wars Episode VIII Given a Release Date, Spin Off Film Rogue One Opens December 2016
For Rogue One, which has everyone guessing that it will be an X-Wing Rogue Squadron film, it will be from Gareth Edwards, the man behind ‘Monsters’ and the reboot of ‘Godzilla’. Set to star Felicity Jones (‘The Theory of Everything’), the film is slated to begin shooting in London this summer with its eye on the release date of December 16, 2016. Rogue One is based on an idea by vfx supervisor John Knoll, and was written by scribe Chris Weitz (‘Cinderella’)
