Rogue One Writer Teases Star Wars News For Next Week

Writer Gary Whitta says the news pertains to a "galaxy far, far away."


Gary Whitta, who was one of the writers for the billion-dollar Star Wars spin-off movie Rogue One has teased some news for next week, and it could be related to Star Wars.

Whitta cryptically wrote on Twitter, "Some news coming from a galaxy far, far away next week... stay tuned."

This tease from Whitta follows his statement from July when he said he sold a movie script that he said was a "big one."

"Okay, okay. I sold a movie. A big one. Writing and producing. Hope to be able to talk about it soon!" Whitta wrote in July.

There is no connection between Whitta's latest tease and the earlier one, however, so the projects may not be connected.

Before he co-wrote Rogue One, Whitta was the editor-in-chief of PC Gamer magazine. Whitta was a story consultant on Halo 5, and he also wrote for Telltale's acclaimed Walking Dead video game series. Additionally, he wrote the Denzel Washington movie Book of Eli and he co-wrote After Earth with director M. Night Shyamalan. Whitta has also written episodes of Star Wars Rebels.

More recently, Whitta has kept busy with his video game-themed talk shows in the universes of Animal Crossing and Fall Guys.
