Superhero Hype reports that Josh Trank has signed on to direct a stand-alone Star Wars movie for Lucasfilm and Disney.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said: "We're thrilled to welcome Josh into the family. 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."
Trank added: "The magic of the Star Wars Universe defined my entire childhood. The opportunity to expand on that experience for future generations is the most incredible dream of all time."
Trank's credits include Chronicle and The Fantastic Four for 20th Century Fox. He joins Gareth Edwards in the list of directors taking on Star Wars projects not related to the new trilogy. Edwards' film arrives on December 16, 2016.
