Given that it’s deep into production, and that it will come out first, the bulk of Star Wars movie news revolves around J.J. Abrams’ Episode VII. We haven’t heard much about standalone spinoffs lately, but the first one is busy rustling up the primary players. We know Godzilla director Gareth Edwards will take the helm, and we just learned that his already acute visual sense is going to get an assist from cinematographer Greig Fraser.
Both Edwards and Fraser are relatively young up and comers in their respective fields. Edwards came to the public’s attention in 2010 with his low-to-no budget creature feature Monsters. This unique take on the genre was what landed him the Godzilla job, and when that hit, and hit big this past summer, Lucasfilm was like, “Hey guy, want to direct your very own Star Wars movie,” and he was all, “Yes, yes I do.”
