Star Wars: Rogue One Writer Hints At Next Big Film Project
Gary Whitta, who also hosts the Animal Crossing talk show Animal Talking, is working on something big.
Gary Whitta, the co-writer of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and Season 1 of Telltale's The Walking Dead, is working on something new, and it sounds big. The writer, who is currently hosting Animal Talking, a socially-distanced talk show set inside Animal Crossing: New Horizons, has teased a new project on Twitter.
On July 11, Whitta tweeted about having news that had made his week, and while he can't say much, he revealed that he "sold a movie." What the movie is about, and who it was sold to, remains unclear, but he says it's a "big one."
Overall it was kind of a meh week but today came in strong with a GREAT ending, for reasons that will become apparent to you all at some point in the future. Can’t say more.— Gary Whitta (@garywhitta) July 11, 2020
Okay, okay. I sold a movie. A big one. Writing and producing. Hope to be able to talk about it soon!
Whitta will write and produce the movie, and absolutely no further details are known right now, including whether it's an original idea or set within an established universe.
Whitta is also a credited writer on the upcoming live-action adaptation of Mouse Guard, originally published as a graphic novel by David Petersen. He has also written four episodes of Star Wars Rebels. He's also the lead writer of upcoming PlayStation 5 title Project Athia from Square Enix.
Further details are likely a while away yet, but in the meantime, Animal Talking continues to be a delight. Check out this tour of Danny Trejo's island.
