“We’re thrilled to welcome Josh into the family,” says Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy. “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 states, “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.”
In addition to Chronicle, Trank is also directing 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four reboot. Josh Trank, if you do not bring Michael B. Jordan to the galaxy far far away with you, you’re going on my list.
