Following the JJ Abrams path to success and lightsabers, Godzilla director Gareth Edwards has proven he can not fuck up a half-century-old, fanboy-beloved franchise too bad, and he's thus been given his own Star Wars. The Hollywood Reporter claims Edwards has been hired to take on one of the character-specific spin-off films Disney has been planning to fill in the gaps between official numbered episodes of the series. The film has a December 16, 2016 release already penciled in, but it's still not clear who the subject will be--though it will likely be either Boba Fett or Han Solo, as has long been rumored. Besides, Admiral Ackbar has always seemed like more of a guy for an According to Jim-style sitcom.
