quietearth [Celluloid 03.16.15] scifi action adventure

A ton of info about the first Star Wars spin off film has been released including some concept art for the film.

As you may remember, the film will be directed by Gareth Edwards who first won our hearts with his indie film Monsters. His last film, Godzilla, was definitely a marvelous achievement in scope and spectacle, but I was less a fan of the story and mythology on display.

At any rate, we're excited to see Edwards play in this sci-fi sandbox and some concept work from the film, officially sub-titled "Rogue One" has been released, which is described below, as well as a bit about what we can expect from the film.

According to /Film, the concept art shows “Dozens of figures in fatigues appeared to be storming something with a strange helicopterish vehicle (open on the sides) in the background, releasing more troops.”

About Star Wars: Rogue One
Rogue One is the title for the first film in a unique series of big-screen adventures that explores the characters and events beyond the core Star Wars saga.

Rogue One will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters, Godzilla) and written by Oscar nominee Chris Weitz (Cinderella, About a Boy, Antz).

The first actress cast is Felicity Jones, who garnered an Academy Award nomination and critical acclaim for her performance in The Theory of Everything. The idea for the story of Rogue One came from John Knoll, an Academy Award-winning visual effects supervisor and chief creative officer at Industrial Light & Magic. He will executive produce along with Simon Emanuel (The Dark Knight Rises, Fast & Furious 6) and Jason McGatlin (Tintin, War of the Worlds).

Kathleen Kennedy and Tony To (Band of Brothers, The Pacific) are on board to produce and John Swartz (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) will co-produce. The film starts shooting this summer in London and is due for release on December 16, 2016.

The action-heavy concept art below is representative of what was described.
