Entertainment Weekly reports
that Josh Trank has stepped down as director for the next Star Wars
Anthology film. Trank, a life long Star Wars
fan had been rumored to have disagreed over certain issues.
Those close to the project have indicated there were strong behind-the-scenes disagreements, with Trank clashing with the team managing the larger, interlocked universe of movies Lucasfilm is putting forth. After months of disagreement, a breaking point was crossed.
Josh had apparently had enough and stated:
?After a year of having the incredible honor of developing with the wonderful and talented people at Lucasfilm, I?m making a personal decision to move forward on a different path,?
?I?ve put a tremendous amount of thought into this, and I know deep down in my heart that I want to pursue some original creative opportunities,? his said. ?That said, the Star Wars universe has always been one of my biggest influences, and I couldn?t be more excited to witness its future alongside my millions of fellow Star Wars fans.?
So, who will be the lucky winner to step up and fill the director's chair? I vote for Kyle Newman
