Earlier this year, you couldn’t say the words “Rogue One” without hearing the word “reshoots.” The fact the filmmakers were going back to remake large scenes of the movie sparked massive debate and controversy online. But now, after months of silence, the director of the film has finally given his side.
Every day we hear stories of movies with problems that need fixing and studios throwing money at them. Suicide Squad is a recent example, and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is another. For the latter, Lucasfilm has called in a proven cinematic fixer by the name of Tony Gilroy.
Disney is bringing on some additional help to work on Star Wars: Rogue One: Simon Crane, who has worked as a Second Unit Director or stunt coordinator for such films as Jason Bourne, Edge of Tomorrow and Quantum of Solace.
In the latest entry in Rogue One reshootgate, anonymous sources from the production and Lucasfilm have spoken up. Along with an attempt to calm the waters, there was also the revelation that Jason Bourne series veteran Tony Gilroy has been brought on board.
